    Better than expected.

    I originally went into the store expecting to buy a different phone, but they sold out. This phone was on sale and the specs were comparable to the other phone I was originally wanting to get. After playing with this phone for a bit, I think this one actually turned out to be the better deal. This one has alot more features than I originally expected and didn't notice until after I bought it: It has a flash on the front for taking "selfies" at night, it is waterproof, has a wide angle camera, and it automatically can show you notifications/time/whatever just by waving your hand over the screen so if you're laying in bed you can check to see what time it is without even touching the phone. Those are the features I didn't even know about until after buying it. Some more pros: Battery is awesome, I can go 2-possibly 3 days on a single charge and I think of myself as a heavy user (lots of games and facebook) Camera is pretty great also, it's clear and focuses fairly quickly on both front and rear cameras. Screen is super bright, easy to read even out in the sun and the colors are also very deep, even scrolling through old pictures taken with my old phone - this phone's screen makes the pictures look even better than original. Build quality is sturdy, looks clean and sharp, it has a glass back and metal sides, the phone itself is shiny and premium looking but I would still recommend a case if you think you might drop it. Performance-wise, it is running really smooth. Every game I've played on it has opened quickly and run stable. USB-C charger and a headphone jack are also a plus!

    The very good: The build of the phone. It's a full glass wrap around with a aluminum frame. For a cheap phone this build packs a premium feel and looks to match. It's a very good looking phone in my opinion, it feels as good as a Samsung flagship. The camera(s) this is a dual lens camera with beautiful colors and a portrait mode that dosent look like it's just a blury Circle. The power. This phone isn't a flagship grade phone it's a "premium budget divice" that packs a chipset from Snapdragon. It's a 630. Power efficient and strong enough to to play the latest games around. ( you won't be able to play on the highest levels,but still it's not a bad experience.) Along with a cortex A53 and with a Adreno 508 Graphics chip it makes a pretty good phone for 300$. Android? 8.0 it's up to date for now. The AI. Comes with type c port ( yes. All I have to say is yes. Thank you moto! ) AND we have a head phone jack! ( 3.5 mm ) Extra ( Ipx 67/68 ) I I believe this means that it is dust and waterproof and or resistant as for the screen and rear glass I believe it is Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and 5. 3 respectively being the screen and 5 being the back now I have dropped this phone several times and I bought screen protectors for that reason. I'm horrible at breaking phones, but it's held up I've literally dropped it on the back of the phone and kicked it across the kitchen that I work at and it was just fine. So tops to that! For the bad... The phone doesn't have the biggest battery ever.. it has an all day charge, but personally I am a power user and prefer a 5,000 mAh. But it is made up for with the quick charge ( Turbo charge as moto calls it ) so lose win it's ok.

    I bought it as a temp phone to see if the lack of cell coverage was my aging 6yr old Galaxy S4 or the cell service itself. To my surprise it was the phone. I've had the new one for a week now and haven't dropped signal since. It came with android 7 and it updated to android 9. Great features except it doesn't have wireless charging but the turbo charging makes up for it. Battery life is good. I can go 2 days on one charge. I do recommend the 64 gb version because after the security and OS updates, 50% of the storage was used. That's before any apps or games were downloaded. I installed a 128 gb memory card for extra storage. Make sure to purchase a case because the glass back make it a slippery phone. Also, if your current sim is not a nano sim, you will need to update your sim through your carrier. I have Verizon and they did it for free but you have to pick it up from a cooperate store or have it mailed. Retail Verizon stores will charge you for the sim card.

    This was my first adventure away from the restricted world of Apple. I grabbed it on sale as an unlocked phone an figured it was the safest way of trying Android. I'm happy to say, after a full week with my Motorcycle X4, my iPhone is in my dresser drawer. The 9.0 Android is feels good and intuitive. The battery life is great. I can go 2 days with normal use where my iPhone was lucky to make it a full day. (Really just about 18 or so hrs). The only downside is that a couple of my larger apps take a little longer to load but some (like my weather app) open quicker. Very nice for the price.

    I did extensive research on new phones after I killed my old Nexus 6. I intended always to stick with Google, but the Pixels are much too expensive. Discovered the Android One system by accident, looked for an affordable example, and hit the X4 just as its price was coming down sharply. Went to Best Buy and found it cost even less than I expected. So, even though it's a small step back from my beloved Nexus 6 in some ways, it's a good step ahead in many others, at a third the price. And I even still have the great Google software environment, which other sellers corrupt with garbageware and neglect of updates. I feel very lucky!

    Solid Phone for the Price but Check Version Specs

    This is a Great midrange phone. Fast processor, decent memory and storage, high end features like NFC and two rear cameras make this a solid performing phone. Compared to my previous phone, a Moto G3, I am seeing much faster loading of apps (esp Walmart app) when I am out and about. The biggest complaint I have is the speaker quality is not as good as the G3 (which has 2 speakers compared to a single on the X4) but it is adequate. Note that there are several versions of this phone, AndroidOne, Amazon Prime, etc. Different versions have different sets of features, so do your homework to figure out what you want from yours.

    Ignore my nickname - I like this phone. I bought this phone on sale for ~$100 as it's an older cheaper model. This is a bit slower loading pages with a bit smaller screen. But it's as good as my dying Moto Z Force droid. Is has a sharp clear display, lasts all day, is unlocked with a better camera for 1/7th the cost! The phone sounds better and it has a normal earphone jack!! I bought it as a stop gap until I can order tools and battery to repairs my old phone. Now I don't care if I beak the old one. I just hope this Moto model doesn't quickly destroy it's batteries like other models...

    Went from a 4+ yr old LG which didn't have enough storage for Apps but was functional. Got the MotoX4 because it is not too large, waterproof, enough memory and takes a SD card. Also NFC so it can link with my Canon camera to transfer pictures. Very slippery with the glass casing so get a sleeve. Only had it 3 days so there is a learning curve but I like it so far. Good price at Best Buy at $200 off unactivated. Verizon put in the SIM card for free and set up the data transfer from the old phone. Lynne was very helpful at Verizon.

    I have been wanting a new smartphone for around a year and half. I've done my homework, research on which smartphone that will suit me keeping in mind price and features played a great part into it. I like the fact their's added extra security with the fingerprint scan making it much more difficult and harder to steal. Great features, screen size is ample to watch videos or view pictures etc... If you looking for a high quality smartphone without paying 800-1,000 dollars (+) take a look at the Moto line.

    For $150 unlocked with no contract you cannot beat this deal. I use Republic Wireless for super cheap service and this phone rocks. Great camera and performance just shy of the high end 600-800 plus dollar models. Be realistic people, buy a cheap phone with cheap service to go along with it and then go spend your money enjoying life instead of material things. Guarantee this phone does anything any other phone does without having payments lol!

    I got this when the price dropped from $349 to $149. I wasn't even really looking for a new phone, but the deal was too good to pass up. Love the quick OS upgrades and security updates. Being an Android One phone, it upgraded from Nougat to Oreo right away, and then to Pie the next day. With the glass front and back, this phone is more prone to cracking if it's dropped. Only a good bulky case will protect it. All in all, a really nice phone at a great price point.

    This is a great phone that is priced right and is not over-sized. It is available with 32GB or 64GB, but the 32GB seems to be enough for my needs, and I store my photos on an SD card that I added. The SD card seems to allow mostly data, photos, etc. but not many apps. I'm very happy with the phone, but be aware that it is slippery, so plan to buy a case for better gripping and protection.

    I was looking for an Android phone with an earphone jack and a microHD slot, so I gave this one a try. It surprised me by being a little peppier than the old Nexus 5x that it replaced. I was further surprised that its built-in FM Radio app played in stereo, unlike the mono-only NextRadio app I'd used before. After using this Moto for a month, I'm happier than ever with my purchase, especially since it cost less than $200.

    Got this beauty for $149.99 and it is worth every single penny! Looking for an awesome unlocked phone with fingerprint lock, NFC, AND is water resistant??? Then look no further!!! Highly recommend this phone especially at the sale price. One piece of advice...buy a case BEFORE you use the phone..heck before you take it out the box. It has a glass back and is super slippery. But its a beautiful phone. LOVE IT!

    In my job we send phones all over the world and require unlocked phones. This phone is solid and a work horse and the best unlocked phone for the price currently. It is a very good size for traveling and working yet being able to be stowed away with ease. It take decent picture and has a great battery life. Monthly updates from Google is a plus however the updates do take some data and time so make your users aware.

    I got this on a presidents sale, it's replacing a Galaxy S5. My first overall impression is good. My only issue to this point is the click nature of this phone, the same texture as a wet bar of soap. But that was fixed with a proper case. I added 128 gig micro sdxc card for more than 32 gig of memory. Very responsive octa-core, it can now monitor my movements and violate my privacy 10 times faster than before ;^) Very happy with the phone so far.

    This phone is amazing fast, just have to be patient with the updates and security updates. Would def recommend using high speed internet and not use up all your data on the updates. Other than that it is amazing. If you can afford 64GB model do it. I am a light user for this phone so not many apps. All in all happy with purchase and its unlocked so it was so easy to pop in my straight talk sim card and not set anything up!

    This is Android One phone, so it was updated to Android Pie once turned on. My flagship phone still has not been updated! Still on Oreo. Great for back up phone or even a main phone. Nice screen and internals. Works with no issues on T Mobile. Just put in SIM and good to go. WiFi calling works also. So far no network issues, connects to LTE, no problems with service or data.

    This is an amazing phone. It is so quick, just updated to Android 9.0, and will still get security updates until 10/2020. For the price, this is the best Android phone out there....hands down! I had to search long and hard for a case. Thus that tells me that it did not get the appreciation due it. Now I struggle to decide whether to use my new iPhone 6s plus or this beauty of a phone. Can't go wrong with this phone! Highly recommend.

    I own two X4s. The Black Android One phone. And the Sapphire Blue.. The black is very nice. It is fast and does the job. I especially like having the finger print reader in the front -- where is doubles as a guide. For some reason, the sapphire blue is a tad different. It's gorgeous and operates just a bit differently though it's supposedly the same as the black verson. It's my favorite.
