Motorola Moto X4: The Mister X of Android Returns With Android One

Finally, the Moto X4 is a reality. After a lot of waits, Motorola has launched the Motorola X4 which is going to run on Android One.

In addition to it being an Android One run smartphone, the Moto X4 is also one of the smartphones which run on Google’s Project Fi. That being said, the good things about the device don’t just end here. In fact, the only thing which the Moto X4 carries from its predecessors is the X in its name. There is a whole bunch of features out there which make the device one of the best smartphones in its price range.

Let’s have a look at all the aspects of the Moto X4.

Motorola Moto X4: The Design

Unlike the previous iterations of the Moto X lineup, the Moto X4 carries a reformed design made mostly of glass and metal. This is not wrong at all considering almost all the smartphones of the modern times are relying on this.

The corners are rounded which provide the user plenty of grip and ease for one-handed operation. The rear glass panel is a real fingerprint magnet though and having a back cover or a custom skin of some sort will always be a better option.

Motorola Moto X4: The Display

How we wish that the Moto X4 had something new in the display segment. An 18:9 aspect ratio, which has been the general norm as of lately, would have been the cherry on the cake. Motorola seems to be sticking to the basics and there are no frills out here. The Moto X4 has a standard 5.2-inch, 1920 x 1080 FHD Display which gets the job done. Colors come out to be extremely accurate and while there is nothing fancy to talk about, the display of the Moto X4 is certainly among one of the best at the price range it is being offered at.

There is a decent 3,000 mAh battery provided with the device which, if not that large, is not that bad either. The fact that the display is just a Full HD panel also help the Moto X4’s case. There is a support for Quick Charging.

On the memory front, the Moto X4 offers 32GB of onboard storage which can further be expanded up to 256GB with the help of an external SD card slot.

There is a fingerprint scanner which sits at the usual location at the front. The scanner doubles as the home button. Again, typical Motorola stuff. Fortunately, there is a support for a 3.5mm headphone jack. It is sad to see that this is becoming a feature nowadays.

The Moto X4 is also IP 68 certified against dust and water for up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. This is an amazing feat Motorola has succeeded to achieve at this price point.

Coming to the Processor, the Moto X4 uses a Snapdragon 630 processor with 3GB of RAM. The combination can not at all be considered mind-whopping by any means, but it would easily get you through the day without any hiccups whatsoever.

Motorola Moto X4: The Cameras

The device comes with dual cameras on the rear. The main sensor is 12 megapixels with an aperture of f/2.0 and the secondary is 8 megapixels at f/2.2 with phase detection autofocus. There is no scope for Optical Image Stabilization though. The pictures come out to be decent enough, but the camera struggles in low lights. There is a noticeable lag in the shutter timings as well. The front camera is surprisingly better and faster.

Motorola Moto X4: The Software

The software has always been one of the strong points of Motorola. The same is the case with the Moto X4. The device runs a clean, clutter-free version of Stock Android Nougat 7.1.1 and will definitely get updated with new updates as frequently as possible as it is an Android One supported device.

There are some typical tweaks which Motorola offers such as an ambient display, the double chop to turn on the flashlight, wrist twist to launch the camera, and then some.

Motorola Moto X4: Final Verdict

At this price point ($399), Motorola has managed to provide one hell of a smartphone. The addition of the fact that the device is Project Fi enabled also helps. There is nothing too fancy here, but all the basics are pretty much covered. You can definitely go for the X4.
