It’s no secret that India loves Motrola’s .Moto line of smartphones. Strong sales of Moto g and Moto e series have helped Motorola (or to be precise now, Moto by Lenovo) secure a strong foothold in the Indian market. Among all the phones under the Moto brand, the Moto G series has been the most popular. In our opinion, Moto G smartphones have always struck a good balance between features and price, not to mention that undeniable dependability of software updates that the entire series enjoys.
After MOTOROLA mobilitiy acquisition by LENOVO, the 4th generation MOTO G marks the debut of Lenovo’s branding on a Moto smartphone. The classic Motorola logo is present too but it’s pretty clear that Lenovo aims to make Moto a sub-brand of itself, especially considering companies plans to replace its vibe range with MOTO smartphones
The MOTO G3 and the MOTO G turbo edition were both solid performers but if we had any criticism, it would have to be their lacklustre camera performance, which Motorola has struggled with on pretty much all of its phones. The MOTO G4 plus, a better equipped version of the Moto G4, aims to change that perception for good with its improved camera and software. Let’s see how well it succeeds in achieving its goal.

- The phone has a 5.5-inch full-HD display with Gorilla Glass 3.
- The rear camera boasts of PDAF and laser autofocus.
