Moto X4 is a well-designed phone that looks premium with glass body and metal phone. The phone’s front and back both are protected by Gorilla Glass. The glass back is prone to fingerprints and smudges, so you need to use a cover for that. It is also IP68 rated that makes it water and dust resistant.

The phone has the volume rocker and power button at the right edge. The base side has USB Type-C and headphone jack. The dual camera setup has a bump and large bezels. It depends on your choice if you like it or not. The phone ha mono speaker on the front. It has SIM card slot on the top side.

Moto X4 comes with 5.2-inch Full HD LCD display. For me, this is the ideal size of the phone. It offers large viewing area and can be handled from one hand. The display looks bright but I didn’t get a chance to check that in outdoor conditions. So commenting on it will be too early.

The phone is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 630. You get 3GB and 4GB RAM options. Initial performance was fine and I hope performance will be fine in long run. I didn’t face any lag during my testing when I tried multiple apps, camera and we browsing. As the chipset is the successor of Snapdragon 625, I believe it will perform.

You get 32 GB and 64GB storage options and you can also expand the storage up to 2TB.

The most interesting feature of this phone is the ability to connect with up to four Bluetooth devices simultaneously. SO, you can connect up to 4 Bluetooth devices and play the song in all speakers at the same time. You can find this option in a new ‘Wireless Sound System’ menu.

The phone runs on Android 7.1 Nougat but the company has already promised the Oreo update early next year. Moto is offering a pure Android experience that is not stock but with Moto’s app and gestures to offer you an improved experience.

The phone also has Amazon Alexa integration built-in, however, the feature is currently disabled.

The phone has a dual camera setup that has 12MP Dual Autofocus Pixel sensor with an aperture of f/2.0 and an ultra-wide angle 8MP sensor with a 120-degree field of view and f/2.2 aperture. The camera can capture bokeh shots as well. You can also replace the background of a photo, turn it to black and white with only one colour of your choice to highlight an object.

The phone also has 16 megapixels front camera with f/2.0 aperture. It features several camera modes and also offers front flash for low-light selfie experience.

I tested both cameras in very bad light but the experience was fine. Both cameras seem to be good but I need time to test the camera properly before making any claims.

The phone comes with 3,000mAh with support to TurboPower, offering up to six hours of power in 15 minutes of charge. The battery backup should be fine as it has a smaller display as compared to Moto G5S Plus. I hope it will last for a day easily.
