    Good solid phone, some drawbacks.

    Posted .

    This is my second unlocked Moto X4 and I like the phone. This is the Android One version so it gets it's Android updates right away. It's got decent processor speed and the 64 GB version has plenty of room to install apps. I have a 128 GB SD card to store music, photos, and other media. 64 GB internal is simply not enough for that. One of my beefs with this phone is that the Google Assistant sometimes breaks. I would say these problems are unique to my particular model, but they appear in my other Moto X4. The command, "Listen to the news" (which starts streaming audio from news sources I've selected) only works about 60% of the time. Otherwise, it just shows me search results for news. This requires a restart or clearing the cache from the app. When I click on the mic (rather than saying, "OK Google", it responds, "Call ended" and shows search results for that phrase. Nothing seems to immediately fix this; it just starts, and then fixes itself. I have the phone security set to unlock the phone when saying "OK Google". This has NEVER worked (it has for all my other Android phones). I took the phone to T-Mobile (my current carrier) and they could not figure it out. Often, "OK Google" does not work at all. This requires a restart for it to work again. There are other issues with the security settings that sometimes just don't work, and then they work again. No rhyme or reason. As I understand it, these are known issues for the Moto X4. All that being said, it's a decent phone, even better for the price. If you can get past the voice bugginess, it's a good choice.

    Great phone for the price, and then some!

    I recently purchased the Moto X4 to replace my broken S8. I didn't have a lot of money and I wanted the best for the price. At 199$. This IS that phone! It has a quad core chip with 4gb of memory and it shows. It's more responsive than my S8 and doesn't have the bloatware. I've had it for a couple of weeks now and its still very fast with decent battery. It will last most of the day with heavy usage. Definitely the whole day and some of the next if I only check it to send texts, look something up, and put it away. Screen is nice and the blacks look like it's an LED screen even though it's LCD. The camera has decent quality. My only gripe is that the home button in the front is just a finger print scanner. You have to use the on screen home button. They disabled the Motorola controls for this one that allow it to be a home button with swipe features etc bc of...... Licensing...... If you leave the default display settings you have very little screen real estate on websites bc you have the stupid on screen bar always there. To avoid this I set the font size to large and display size to small. This opened up the phone a lot more. Everything is still readable and the bar on the bottom is much less invasive. I also used the new pie menu and that works better if you can learn it... It's a little less invasive. The only other option is to root it and install a different OS build which voids the warranty. I was going to do that but most people seem to just switch back to the stock OS anyway in the end bc they like it better and I have to say... It's pretty darn good. Although for those wanting to do that, apparently there's also an LED light in this unit that can be turned on if you do that. Again though, if those things don't matter, and you don't want to risk killing the device, I would just change those display settings and use what they gave you bc it's stable and has some nice features. Overall excellent phone and better specs than the Moto G7 for less $ and it has NFC which I believe the G7 doesn't, though the G7 does look nicer in my opinion. For under 300$ unactivated category, this is the winner at 199$

    Former iPhone user converted

    |
    Posted .

    I had been using iPhones for a decade and kept having issues with storage bugs that Apple couldn't fix ("system" taking up over half of my internal storage /causing me to not have ability to take photos, download apps etc) I was nervous about switching to Android since I had never used another type of smartphone before, but decided it was worth the risk to be free of the ongoing problems I had with Apple. I am so glad that I did! I got this phone on sale for $150/64GB. Ordered it for store pick up, which was a breeze. Set it up/switched my number over via the Verizon website. I updated to the most recent version of the OS (Pie) and have found the interface to be every bit as easy to navigate as what I was used to - and now I have access to so many features that I didn't before. I went on a trip shortly after receiving it and the camera took great photos at Disney World and Universal Studios. I even got a shot of the entire Space Shuttle Atlantis at Kennedy Space Center using the wide angle lens - something I was never able to do with my iPhone 6. Charging with the Turbo Charger is incredibly fast and the battery lasts SO much longer than my previous phone. I brought a power bank to the theme parks with me and didn't even need to use it after a full day of taking photos, video and using the app for maps, fastpasses etc. I am thrilled about the IP68 water resistance and had no hiccups on water rides where I'd normally need to bag my phone. I am also very pleased that it is unlocked. I am on Verizon and considering a switch to Project Fi, which I can easily do with this phone. As someone who is switching from an iPhone 6 and who uses a smartphone quite a bit daily, I feel confident about highly recommending this phone to others.

    I've purchased numerous unlocked Motorola phones from Best Buy for use by myself and family members through the years. Recently purchased 2 unlocked Motorola X4 (64GB/4GB RAM) phones from Best Buy and could not be happier! Using them with prepaid Verizon service. Phone charges very quickly, battery lasts all day with typical mixed usage, calls are clear, camera is excellent for a mid-range cellphone, expansion slot for micro SD card capable of expanding to 2TB! Very few phones come anywhere close to this level of expanded memory. The IP68 rating means the phone can withstand sweat, rain, drops in the pool or deep puddles, etc with no adverse effects. Was able to update to Android 9.0 just using automatic update pushes. The fingerprint reader is very handy for everything from locking and unlocking phone access, logging in to numerous browser websites (banking, medical portals, etc), as well as custom applications. Size is ideal at 5.2". Plenty of display real estate while still easily slipping in a pocket for carry. My past 5.5" and 6" phones were difficult to pocket. The X4 had a unibody metal frame (no torquing or twisting which prolongs phone life and greatly reduces chance of screen cracking). The Gorilla Glass display AND Gorilla Glass back panel give the phone a very solid feel and offer great protection. SUMMARY - for those of us unwilling or unable to drop $800 - $1400 on a high end iPhone, Pixel, or Samsung, this phone is a perfect compromise between price, form, and functionality. Purchased mine on sale for $199 at Best Buy (normal price of $419) - incredible deal! Even the staff at the Verizon store where I established service didn't believe me on the price until they looked it up and saw for themselves. "You won't find ANY remotely better phone in any brand for that price" was the Verizon manager's exact quote! Go for it if it's time to replace your defective or outdated phone!

    Awesome value! Works great on Republic Wireless

    Posted .

    I bought this unlocked phone about 3 weeks ago from Best Buy to upgrade my 4-year-old Republic Wireless (RW) beloved original Moto X, which still works but was always running out of storage space. After receiving a new SIM card from RW, switching phone service from my old Moto X to this new Moto X4 was seamless. I am very pleased. Choosing the Moto X4 was a no-brainer for me, as I didn't want to spend close to a thousand dollars on a phone but didn't like the low quality feel of some of the more reasonably priced phones available these days. This phone has a high quality look and feel. It's much bigger and thinner than my old phone (and my husband's Iphone 8), but it's not so big that it's uncomfortable in my hand. It is very, very slippery, but I quickly purchased a nice case that solved that problem. The phone offers great features at a low price - it's plenty fast, has 64gb internal storage, the option of more storage for my photos on a micro SD card, super-fast charging, good battery life, and a nice display. The camera takes better pictures than my old phone, however, one thing I'm not crazy about is that now you must press a specific button on the bottom of the screen to take a picture, whereas with my original Moto X, you could just tap anywhere on the screen to capture a shot. I used to be able to hold my old phone and take the shot with one hand using my index finger to tap the screen anywhere (this was so handy if you were carrying something in your other hand); now I have to hold the new phone with one hand and use my other hand to push the button because the dedicated button is so low, I can't reach it using the fingers of the same hand that's holding the phone. I guess that's a small complaint and I'll get used to it, but it's not as convenient. Another reviewer wrote that they are unfortunately having trouble sending photos via the messaging app but I have not experienced this problem when texting both Android and Iphone users...so far, so good. In fact, this phone has a lot of fun texting features included that my husband's Iphone 8 doesn't have. Some online reviewers complain that Lenovo doesn't offer frequent updates on Motorola phones. I do hope this changes. If it does, and they continue to offer this kind of quality phone at this price point, Motorola could own a huge portion of the cell phone market. I mean, seriously, who wants to spend $1,000 on a phone?

    Great Phone

    Posted .

    Love this phone I was looking at the Moto G6 but liked the specs on this phone , Have had it for 1 month , The web site says 3 GB of Ram but it came with 4GB which makes it a bigger plus. For a Mid grade phone the is a nice phone . It responds well and good battery life and charges fast with Turbo mode. Love the finger print sensor, This is a Android One phone which is unlocked and does not come with the pre-installed apps from your carrier which most people never use and can never uninstall. Make sure you buy a case the phone is very slippery since it has a glass back. The only negative it does not have wireless charging. But I still gave it 5 stars . Mine has already updated to Android 9.0

    Great Phone

    Posted .

    I was not in the store to purchase this phone. I went looking at two others. I got into the store, looked at a couple of other brands, another phone from this brand, and this one on display. I bought this one because I liked the speed of the processor, how smooth the screen scrolled, 4 GB ram, 64 GB memory, 2.2 G octacore processor, IP 68 water resistance, everything seems to be working great, the least space taken up by preinstalled software of any phone I looked at, and it upgraded to android 9(Pie). Switching over from the old phone to this one was easy. I removed my existing sim from my old phone, placed it in this one, and started it up. I followed the instructions, placed my old phone next to it, linked them up wireless, data copied to new phone, and my Google apps all downloaded. I did have a few contacts, I had to send manually, but the transition has been painless, since I knew all my passwords. I purchased two of these, the wife got new phone fever in the store, and she is happy with hers also. I ran out of space on my old 16gb phone, too much factory installed stuff that could not be removed or transferred to the sim card.

    Good priced phone with plenty of features and a very clean Android version. I had an earlier Moto before this one so knew what i was getting. Still going 2 years later although it does slow sometimes with a lot fo apps open (like 20 chrome tabs, facebook, whatsapp, outlook, zillow etc all open at the same time).

    Best Buy's Moto X4 Android One: a great value

    Posted .

    Clean unlocked Android One variant of Moto X4, giving access to any cell carrier - but also to simultaneous multiple ones with Google Project Fi. IP68 water resistant: great for motorcycle GPS. Up to 2TB possible on microSD - download your Google maps here. Fast 3A charger. Cell reception and voice quality are better than my previous phone. I waited before making this review - After using it for a few weeks, I still love my new smartphone. The 64GB internal memory Best Buy model variant is an excellent value, especially buying it on sale, plus it came with an e-gift card. I was hesitant to buy it because some reviews mention: software issues, battery issues, speed. I have not experienced any of these. Perhaps these issues came from a bad installation, not enough memory, or carrying over conflicts from the previous phone people upgraded from. To avoid these, I started by fully upgrading the phone to Android 8.1 before reinstalling my previous apps. The upgrades+updates were annoying, but troubleless. Be careful: * Although the glass finish looks great, it is very slippery. I would never consider using this phone without a case: you will drop it. * I am glad I choose the 64GB version. With all my apps, photos, downloaded maps and latest Android OS, 32GB would probably feel too tight brand new, so what in 2 years? It is worth buying from Best Buy. They create local jobs, have competitive prices and regularly offer special versions like this great Android One phone (XT1900-1 p/n PA8S0019US).

    I bought this phone because it was somewhat cheap and I needed a phone to get me by for a year or so before I wanted to do a proper upgrade. The camera is pretty poor vs modern elite phones, but the battery life is great and the vanilla aspect of its Android platform was good as well. A few positives: 1) USB-C charging which means it's faster at charging and used the same updated charging as all the newer phones coming out 2) Speedy interface for a phone in its price point 3) Moto Actions. This is a feature I really enjoyed. When enabled, you can do things like turn on/off the flashlight with a shake of the phone, or take a screenshot but placing 3 fingers on the screen, etc. The flashlight shake I found extremely helpful.

    Superior Call Connectivity

    Posted .

    I have had every MOTO X phone and even the latest MOTO Z2 Force. I am a driver with the same routes in North Jersey ,NYC and Long Island NY. I know every dead zone because I experienced them every day, until now. For anyone who gets frustrated with dropped calls because of driving through known dead zones this phone is the only one that stays connected where every other previous Moto has not. No other changes. Same network. Good job Motorola.

    Waited to write this for learning curve and to make a good quality comment. The only bad thing I can say about this, which has nothing to do with the phone is the lack of after market products. Cases, covers and such are limited, but you could say that about anything not from the two popular brands. Call quality is great, signal reach is great. Camera is only okay.

    I spent eight years as an iPhone user (iphone 3G and 5). Never going back. The expensive phones all have greater capabilities than I need. At some point most of us only need so much phone. This unlocked Moto phone provides excellent value with a speedy processor, 4GB RAM, 64GB storage and expandable Micro-SD slot. I can store all my photos, videos and my entire music collection on the Micro-SD card. Would you look at that!!!??? I'm talking to you Apple. I like that I can eventually replace the battery myself via iFixit offering official Moto replacement batteries.

    Pretty sweet value here on the features you get for the money. Water proof, sd card, aptX, all US carriers, and most importantly: continual software updates due to Android 1. It's not the most blazing fast phone around, but it's certainly capable.

    Excellent Mid-range phone

    |
    Posted .

    This is a great Mid-range cell phone. This isn't a flagship phone like a Samsung Galaxy or an iPhone, but this is still a good device for the price. It's a bit small in the hand if you are used to larger screen phones. The bezels are more akin to last gen phones and you'll find more screen real estate from the g7 line from Motorola. Decent camera that struggles a little with wider angle shots but not enough to complain about regularly. This unit upgrades to Android Pie which is a nice perk. The SnapDragon 630 is pretty snappy and the phone decently fast for Mid-range. I noticed a slight performance increase from my previous Moto G5S Plus which used a SnapDragon 625. Not sure if it'll play demanding mobile games but it will hold it's own with games like Summoner's War. The Moto actions are also a neat feature allowing for some cool motion and gesture based controls. The UI is near stock Android with only a light Moto skin on top. This still has a 3.5 mm headphone jack and this is one of the few Moto's that supports NFC! If it's on sale, definitely a good buy.

    moto for everyone

    this phone rocks! i am not a got to have a new phone person, but when this went on sale it was time to replace the old one. 64 gigs of storage, expandable micro sd slot, android one and pie, and carrier unlocked - all combined for the perfect storm. the phone is really very pretty, and slippery- i don't drop phones and dropped it twice in the first hour. no damage and now it is in a poetic case that safely shows the phone off. the initial 24 hours will be spent on a series of updates, but in the end it is worth it. loaded my itunes catalog on the 128 gb memory card and synced up my car stereo and headphones. battery life seems to be more than 1 day on a charge, and the usb-c charger makes charging easy. love the karate chop to turn on the flashlight and the wiggle to get the camera going- go moto actions! bringing over my stuff from the old phone was easy and painless. love this phone!

    Pixel on a Budget

    |
    Posted .

    I am very happy with my Moto X4. I greatly prefer stock Android and I am not a "power user" so it is perfect for me! A phone with excellent build quality, a nice design, SD630 CPU with 4gb/64gb, solid cameras, headphone jack, ip68, NFC, USB C, and a front facing speaker for $200? That isn't gsm only and supports Verizon? You can't beat this at this time. I originally went to Best Buy to pick up a Moto G7 which lacks ip68, NFC, and a front facing speaker for $300. The G7 may have a nicer display and more modern design but the 4gb/64gb Moto X4 for $200 beats it at everything else. The Android One Moto X4 is a budget Pixel. You are getting that same clean stock Android experience for a fraction of the price. Do yourself a favor and get the 4gb/64gb model like I did. You'll thank yourself later for the extra storage and 33% more ram.

    There is nothing wrong with the moto x4 (64gb 4gb) version. It does everything I ask of it but none of it is great. It's got 'good' written all over it. It's a solid choice for a savvy traveler. Pictures are ok Talk quality is ok Screen is ok Battery life is OK (about 1 day with lots of use) Audio meh. And doesn't work perfectly with an external dac but it does work. Speed so/so Support =Motorola customer service makes Samsung customer care feel like ISIS. your mom likes the video quality we shoot. Idk if it's worth it to buy the moto z4 but any Motorola is gonna have moto gestures that you won't realize how nice they are until you ditch the phone for some fagship. Stay Mobile Alabama.

    I traded my Moto G5 Plus in for this phone and from day 1 I was sooo glad. I'd never thought I woud ever say that, but I did and I mean it!! If you don't care about timely Android updates, then this phone isn't for you because it is updated monthly. Samsung and iPhones are grossly overpriced. I will put this against ANY of them for what it was made for.... PURE ANDROID!!!
