The phone is smaller than the Moto G4 Plus model and users would find it fits better in the hand. G4 Play also feels comfortable when you hold it. The body is all-plastic but the buttons are tactile. In fact the phone has more solid grip
Motorola Moto G4 Play sports 5 inch screen with 720x1280 pixels resolutions. It packs 2 GB of RAM and Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor. G4 Play runs Android Marshmallow.
G4 Play costs $50 cheaper than the G4 Plus. It is no wonder that the camera quality is reduced (G4 Plus gets 16 MP). Moto G4 Play offers 8 MP of rear camera and 5 MP of front camera.
Moto G4 Play is powered by 2,800 mAh removable battery. Compared to the Xiaomi Redmi 3S, the phone gets smaller capacity but given the removable feature; users can actually carry a spare to be used. The phone does offer fast charging feature with only 15 minutes to make the phone lasts 5 hours.
The Moto G4 Play performs well for a lower end smartphone. Apps like email and web browsing, as well as basic games like Hearthstone, Scatter Slots, and others launched relatively quickly and ran fine, and I didn’t notice any slowdown while using the phone when apps or games were updating in the background. For the average user, the Moto G4 Play will definitely run commonly used applications and popular games.
With average daily usage – checking email, responding to messages, taking the odd picture, and watching videos or playing a few rounds of games, the Moto G4 Play easily lasted through the day on the 2800 mAh battery. In the off chance you may need to, you can carry a spare battery as the battery in the G4 Play is removable.
