Features and Specs

With a full HD display of 5 inches and 1280 pixels by 720 pixels, the phone has a look that is similar to its other G4 counter-parts (Moto G4 and G4 Plus) and yet it is certainly slimmer. This can perhaps be owed to the fact that Motorola is now owned by Lenovo, a company known for their sleek and thin phones.

Powered by a 410 quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB RAM and an Adreno 306 GPU (graphics processing unit), the Moto G4 Play is quick with enough power to smoothly multi-task. The inbuilt storage is of 16 GB and the external storage is can be expanded with a micro-SD card of up to 128 GB.

For those who are looking for a budget phone with a good camera, the Moto G4 Play is certainly not your best option. The phone sports a rear camera of 8 megapixels, with an aperture of f/2.2 and an autofocus capability. There is also a Geo-tagging option available when you take an image using the camera application. The back also has a single LED flash. The front camera is of 5-megapixels and the camera application offers a Display Flash feature that adds a burst of light when you take a selfie.

The Moto G4 Play has the latest Android 6.0.1 update installed, the Marshmallow OS. The smartphone is also fitted with a 2800 mAh battery that can be removed if necessary. Available in black and white, the Moto G4 Play has a nano-coating that makes it water-repellent.

A cheaper version of the Moto G4 and the premium Moto G4 Plus, the dual-sim Moto G4 Play is priced at Rs. 8999 and is available only on Amazon India.

A Worthy Buy?

The Moto G4 Play may not be the best option budget phone available, however for the exact price, there are few other phones to choose from. Moto’s line-up of phones have certainly been reliable so far, making this a phone that you can probably bank on for a while to come.

Mobile Upgrades: Killing The Product Before Its Time?

Have to agree. The speed of newer phone models within the same series and newer app versions lead to more thought put into buying decisions. Phone lines have a definite short shelf life

Frequently upgrading the software is a real problem as updating the software might cause your phone to lag because of the older hardware.

They should come out with upgrades for the specific phones and not for the separate Operating System. This way a special version for your phones specific hardware can be made
