Motorola back in October 2017 released its affordable smartphone named Motorola Moto X4 in Australia. The handset fits somewhere in between Moto Z2 Force and budget-friendly but flagship-level smartphone “Moto G5” and comes clumsily close to Moto Z2 Play price with no perk of Moto Mods. The handset is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Chipset coupled with an insane 4GB of RAM and housing a 5.2-inches Full HD IPS LCD display.
The Moto X4 receives numerous features from both phone series such as water-resistance, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, a dual-lens camera and several other design cues. Let’s explore Moto X4 and see what it dishes out for its audience.
Design and Display
The Motorola Moto X4 looks distinct and sturdily built as it is made of a metal-meets-glass body with a mirror finish. Outback, you’ll see a large camera hump – a circular plateau of shorts housing a dual-camera with the dual flash setup. It does add some talent to the overall look – bearing its own shiny-poker-chip-like design. The front side boasts a 16MP FaceTime sensor with its own flash and a fingerprint sensor right below 5.2-inches IPS display.
Display-wise, Motorola Moto X4 comes with 5.2-inches LTPS IPS LCD display which is well-supported by 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels resolution and a screen-to-body ratio is 68.4%. Visualizations are great and screen looks good to the naked eye and gets quite bright. Extraordinary vibrant and sharp colours may have your thinking it is Super AMOLED display. 424 PPI though, also does its part to deliver users excellent and crisp images.
Camera, Hardware, and Software
On paper, it is equipped with a 12MP + 8MP dual rear camera for DSLR-like Bokeh effect. This dual configuration helps users capture wide-angle and detailed images even in a low-light condition thanks to its Phase Detection Autofocus and Dual-Tone LED Flash. Video calls and selfies both, on the other hand, are assisted by a gorgeous 16MP sensor. Most important of all, it can record 120fps slow-motion videos at HD resolution as well as 4K videos at 30fps.
Here is where Motorola Moto X4 shines – it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Octa-core Chipset which is clocked at 2.2GHz and 4GB of RAM. Hence users can indulge their selves in multitasking and can play graphics enriched games without getting any lag. As mentioned above, a fingerprint scanner is placed right below its display which acts as a home button.
The onboard memory of Motorola X4 is 64GB with a further expandable option up to 256GB via microSD card. The smartphone comes pre-installed with Android 7.1 Nougat operating system with no defined timeline of an upgrade. However, you’ll notice a few cosmetic changes in the UI for an exceptional experience.
Price and Availability
The Motorola Moto X4 was started landing on shores back in October 2017 in Australia and as far as Motorola Moto X4 64GB Price in Australia is concerned, it goes for AU$385-429. It is a little more compared to you’d like to pay all at once for a mid-range smartphone in Australia, isn’t it?
Battery and Connectivity
A 3000mAh non-removable battery inside Motorola Moto X4 promises users 6 to 7 hours of on-screen time with just a 15-minute charge – filling the battery from 0% to nearly 30%. However, with Motorola’s Turbo Charge Technology, charging from 0% to 100% takes only an hour and forty minutes while lasting over 10 hours with a moderate usage. Heavy users should expect a little less.
The Motorola Moto X4 has dual-SIM connectivity alongside support for 4G VoLTE. Also, it has Bluetooth v5.0, NFV, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac/b/g/n and a USB Type-C port.
