Moto G series has been the benchmark for budget phones since its introduction. This year Motorola has come up with Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus, and they are a major upgrade over the Moto G3.
Moto G4 plus is pretty compact as it measures 153.00 x 76.60 x 7.90 (height x width x thickness) and weighs 155.00 grams. It has a 5.5-inch large screen with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels (401ppi) protected by Gorilla Glass 3. Regarding its build, it is much thinner than the Moto G3 and has a full plastic body. Moto G4 users can customize their device with replaceable back covers.
Moto G4 plus is powered by 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 617, uses old Cortex A-53 CPU and a low-mid level Adreno 405 GPU. The phone runs on the very latest version of Android, Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The phone is available in two variants where you get 16GB of internal storage with 2GB RAM model and 32GB of internal storage with 3GB RAM model. External memory is expandable up to 128GB. For a budget phone G4 plus carries an impressive 16MP rear camera with laser focus and a 5 MP front-facing camera.
The Motorola G4 plus is backed up by 3000mAh non-removable battery and surprisingly it supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0. Talking about the connectivity, it comes with WIFI, GPS, Bluetooth V4.1 and Micro USB 2.0. Also, it offers dual sim features (Micro-Sim) and has a dedicated micro-SD slot. Sensors on the phone include Fingerprint, Proximity sensor, Ambient light sensor, Accelerometer, and Gyroscope.
The phone was launched in May 2016 but still is not available in Nepal. The phone is available in two colors, black and white. 16GB variant of G4 plus costs RS.13499 (USD 220), and a 32GB variant costs RS.14999 (USD 260) in India. With its sheer specs and pricing, the Moto G4 plus will certainly give other mid-range phones a run for their money.
Recently Samsung’s J7 has been very popular among mid-level users especially in Nepal, but the arrival of Moto G4 plus should see a decline in popularity of Samsung’s and other mid-ranged devices. Moto G4 plus will be an attractive option for buyers in Nepal with expected price to be around RS.27000.
