Motorola Moto X4 review

The Motorola Moto X4 shows that it is becoming even easier to get in on the dual camera action at an affordable price. The features and specifications are impressive throughout, here in my Motorola Moto X4 review we take a closer look.


Moto X4 design


The Motorola Moto X4 has a premium look thanks to the anodised aluminium frame and diamond cut edges. The front and back are made from Corning Gorilla Glass and the chassis has been ergonomically contoured to fit perfectly in the palm.



The Moto X4 is in two colours, which are Super Black and Nimbus Blue.The body is sleek, measuring just 7.99mm and the phone isn’t too heavy at 163g. The phone is IP68 certified, so minor splashes or being caught out in the rain are no problem.



Motorola Moto X4 features


The Moto X4 has Snapdragon 630 2.2GHz octa-core processor with 3GB RAM which makes for excellent performance. The 5.2-inch Full HD display is excellent when browsing the internet or gaming.



The phone includes a fingerprint sensor for security and this also allows you to read notifications without unlocking the phone. There is 32GB of internal memory and the microSD card slot will allow you to expand the memory by up to 2TB.


The Moto X4 comes with the Android 7.1 Nougat operating system and this will include the ability to upgrade to Android Oreo when Motorola rolls out the update.



The current set up includes access to Amazon Alexa and Moto Actions. Moto Actions let you do things with motions, such as opening up the camera with a twist of the wrist.


The Motorola Moto X4 has a big 3,000mAh battery which can give all day use. The 15W TurboPower charger can give up to 6 hours of usage time with just a quick 15-minute charge.


Motorola Moto X4 camera



A stand out feature of the Motorola Moto X4 is its dual rear camera. There is a 12-megapixel camera along with an 8-megapixel camera with a 120° ultra wide angle field of view.


These two camera lenses give true depth detection and allow for depth effects and selective focus for professional looking bokeh blurred backgrounds. The selective black and white beta software uses the two lenses so that you can choose to keep the foreground in colour and leave the rest black and white, or vice versa.



The camera also has a dual LED flash, ultra wide angle shot, best shot and landmark/object recognition, professional mode, slo-mo video.


The Moto X4 has a high-resolution 16-megapixel selfie camera with an adaptive low light mode. This takes the resolution down to 4MP and uses the sensor to capture 300% more light, making it great for low-light conditions.



Other features of the selfie camera include selfie flash, face filters, selfie panorama, beautification mode and professional mode.



The Motorola Moto X4 performs excellently and the superb camera is top-notch for a device at this price point. If you want a dual-camera phone without paying a flagship price, the Motorola Moto X4 is for you.
