best phone for prepaid verizon
Posted by: dgolden from: on
i had a galaxy j1 for verizon pp but kept running out of space and had to keep deleting apps (even though i had a 32 gig micro sd card). some apps could not be moved from internal storage. the sales associate steered me to this phone, which had just become available. not only did it have more available on-board storage, it has expandable (so i could still use my sd card) storage, a removable battery (hello galaxy 7), but it cost less than others that verizon pp offers. verizon probably doesn't make much $ from we who use pre-paid and hopes that we will go over our allotted data, which might be why they offer few phones, but this really is a great phone. display is gorgeous, bettery is very good as is sound. very little bloatware compared to other verizon phones. seems sturdy and just the right size. i don't shoot many pix w/ my phone, but the few i have came out very well. this is probably the best phone at this price. the few features i missed, i was able to find apps for- like a notification light for messages. it syncs up to all of your google apps. even after 1 month i still find something new and cool about this phone. so glad i bought it.

Good phone for Verizon prepaid
Posted by: technerd9 from: on
First thing's first - this is for Verizon prepaid only. It can't be used on GSM providers, at least, not 100%. Some intrepid people have tried, I guess.
This is a nice device, and the price is good. Sure, there are "edgier" and more fancy phones out there. This thing does 99% of what it needs to do, and does it fairly well.
It will last at least a day on a charge, and is a decent machine.
No, it will probably not play the latest, greatest, fanciest games all that well. That's not what it's meant to do. It's meant to be a good phone first. It should play games that aren't super high end pretty well. For really intense games, it will probably choke up. I don't game on the phone, though, so I don't care. For puzzle games, etc., I'm sure it's fine.
The screen is good (even in sunlight), and is of decent size. Actually miss slightly smaller ones, but this one is mostly usable with one hand.
It runs pretty smooth with 2GB RAM. Web browsing is decent, and it flips between a few apps pretty well.
Time will tell, but the battery does seem to be good, as reviews say. Takes a long time to charge up, though, so it will need to be an overnight kind of thing which I'd bet most people do anyway. With medium use, it looks like it will easily last a day. If it ever gets Android 7.x, there are even more battery optimizing features built-in, so that would be really nice. Not holding my breath, but the word is that it should get 7.x in the near future.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with this device. It is a nice upgrade from last phone. It is smooth running, long running, surprisingly lighter than I thought, and I'll get used to the slightly larger size. Makes reading a little easier anyway.
- It's a good mid-range phone.
- It runs smooth, and doesn't seem to get hot
- The camera is OK. It should do well enough for random pictures.
- It runs Android 6.x - and *should* get 7.x, but we'll see.
- Long battery life. Much nicer than many other phones out there, especially in this price range
- Price - you simply can't beat it for what you get
- SD card slot. Easy to add a card for storing pictures etc.
- Removable battery. What a nice thing to see. Not sure if replacements are out, or ever will be, but it's nice to see the choice
- Moto notifications. Very used to these. Very convenient.
- Very little "bloat" or junk. Nearly "stock" Android with no weird extra "skins" or other things that get in your way. The very few "Verizon" apps can be ignored or disabled if you want.
- It's a Moto, even if Lenovo bought them out. That means it has a good radio chip in it. That means it probably has better reception than a lot of other brands, and that still matters in some places.
- It's not the "best" phone in existence, it's a "mid-range" device. It's still better than a lot of others.
- It doesn't have a 1080p or higher screen resolution, but the pixels are so small that the human eye can't see them anyway.
- It doesn't have some features, such as NFC, or a fingerprint reader. Oh well.
- It doesn't make you breakfast, but it could probably help you order food online.
-...biggest con... it has a Snapdragon 410. This is already at least a yr. old chipset. It's not the latest. It's not the fastest. It is what it is. This one isn't great, but it's also not horrible by any means. It's efficient, and it handles "regular" things decently. It's an OK compromise for good battery life and usable performance.
Overall - you can't beat this thing for the price. If you want to use it with another carrier, get the "unlocked" one. If you have Verizon (prepaid) and don't expect to need it on another provider, this is a great value, and it doesn't disappoint.

Great phone, nice and smooth!
Posted by: skeeter125 from: on
For the price (got it on sale for $65) it is a great device. Smooth performance, and highly recommend as a first phone, or if you do not want to spend $500+ on a phone. Nice, near stock android interface, and no lag (which wasn't the case on other midrange devices)

It's a good size, the battery last all day long and you really can't beat the price.

Ok for basic needs
Posted by: Crout from: on
The Moto G4 Play is a good phone for basic needs such as Internet, talk, and text. It tends to struggle at times with video on Facebook and Instagram stories. Also my Bluetooth headset has connection issues with this phone. When I turn the Bluetooth headset on it won't automatically connect to the phone. I have to pair it everytime when I turn it on. I never had this problem with other devices. I don't know if it is because I also have a smartwatch connected to the phone.

Phone is good
Posted by: Vish from: on
It's a good phone and nicely built. Runs flawless but tightly locked with verizon. No other sim worked on this.

High Spec Cell At An Affordable Price
Posted by: TheyCallMeBruce from: on
For those of you looking to break the leash on contract phones without sacrificing all the top features, this prepaid cell from Verizon is a top contender. The Moto G4 Play smartphone has all the up-to-date features including a fast quad-core processor for multitasking, e.g. browsing websites and streaming movies, a large 16GB internal memory with an expandable 128GB SD card slot, and an excellent 8.0 MP camera. All of this is orchestrated on the huge 5" clear screen with Corning Gorilla Glass for the ultimate protection. Best of all you get all of these features at a super affordable price. This is definitely a top contender in the high end prepaid phone market.

Great Phone for the Money
Posted by: SanDiegoJedi from: on
I picked up this phone after I broke my Samsung S5. Honestly this is a great phone, and would highly recommend it. Its not a flagship phone like a iPhone s7 or new Samsung S6 phone but it's pretty close. The screen is great, the performance is smooth. You're just not getting all the bells and whistles like finger scanner or cutting edge camera. But it comes close, and for $85 is a steal.

Best low price phone
Posted by: swebb030 from: on
Wow. There is not one thing bad about this phone. One thing that is not exactly stellar for me is the call quality. I did notice echo of my voice during calls but only on my end. This was not noticed on the other end.
The 16gb of storage for a sub $100 phone is good. The phone itself is really fast with 2gb of ram. Pleased on it's speed when loading Web pages etc. Display very nice, bright and gorgeous. Camera nice with plenty of cool features. If you like Verizon, I have tried their prepaid several times and was never pleased, and looking for a really good inexpensive phone, give this a try. I am seriously considering the unlocked version.
