It’s been nearly three years since Moto G4 was launched and while this might not seem like such a long time, time does fly faster for smartphones. Smartphone manufacturers offer two years of guaranteed software updates and after this is done, the smartphones rarely get any more attention. The reason why this is happening is quite simple. Smartphone manufacturers want their fans to keep buying a new device every year and if they kept on updating the older ones, then no one would have a good reason to spend more money on a new one.
Moto G4 Receives Android 8.1 Oreo
Fortunately, Moto G4 has not been forgotten. Motorola has surprised everyone recently by rolling out a new update to Moto G4. Despite the smartphone outliving the guaranteed update period, Motorola still wants to make sure that the software of Moto G4 is stable and it released Android 8.1 Oreo. Truth be told, this is an older update but it does bring a breath of fresh air to Moto G4. With that said, let’s check out what are the highlight features that Moto G4 has to offer.
