Motorola Moto X4 hands-on review


Introduction

The Moto X had a reputation of being one of the best Androids you can buy. This beloved line has been resurrected – not as a flagship, but as a premium mid-ranger. Its claim to fame is a dual camera (with a wide-angle lens) and highly advanced audio features. Sound familiar?

The Moto X4 is the first non-LG phone to feature a wide-angle lens on its dual camera setup. Specifically, the wide-angle cam has an 8MP sensor, which complements the 12MP sensor of the main camera. The selfie cam doesn’t fail to impress either, with a 16MP sensor and a dedicated LED flash.

How many headsets or speakers can a phone connect to over Bluetooth? The answer is 4 – if you get the X4, that is. They each have individual controls for volume and you can even toggle channels (left/right) on and off! In short, this phone is a party in your pocket.

The Moto X4 is not a large phone, but the original Moto X was smaller than the mainstream phones of the day as well. Anyway, the 5.2″ screen can still be considered “average-sized” and it’s a 1080p panel. Sharp enough and it won’t strain the GPU of the Snapdragon 630 too much.
