Tech companies such as Apple and Samsung keep launching high-end flagship smartphones every year. These smartphones are equipped with state of the art hardware specs that deliver stellar performances. High-end smartphones are impressive, but truth be told, casual smartphone users are never going to use them to their full potential. Therefore, spending more than $1,000 for one of Apple’s latest iPhone XS Max is not really worth it.
On the bright side of things, companies such as Motorola haven’t forgotten about people who don’t to pay a small fortune on a handheld device and they keep launching mid-range smartphones that deliver reliable performances and a premium user experience. The perfect example of this is Moto G4.
Introducing Moto G4
Moto G4 was released in May 2016 and the smartphone has been going strong ever since. Despite being two years old, Motorola has kept on improving the smartphone’s performances by releasing regular operating system updates. The smartphone runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box, but the operating system can be upgraded up to Android 7.0 Nougat.
Affordable Price and Powerful Hardware Specs
Hands down, the best thing about Moto G4 is the fact that the starting price for the smartphone is only $200. However, you shouldn’t be fooled by the affordable price because Motorola didn’t compromise on hardware specs at all. Moto G4 is fueled by an octa-core Snapdragon 617 (28nm) processor that clocks at 1.5GHz.
Not just that, but the processor is also paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of internal storage space. If 32GB of internal storage space doesn’t sound enough for you, then you should know that it can also be expanded up to 256GB via microSD card.
Motorola knows that people love to take pictures with their smartphones and it made sure to equip Moto G4 with a premium 13MP rear mounted camera that features an aperture of f/2.0. Moto G4 is also equipped with a smaller 5MP selfie shooter.
