Bottom Line

For those looking for an Android smartphone with just the essentials at a friendly price, the Moto G4 Play is very much worth considering.

The 5-inch Moto G4 Play hit the shelves in August, 2016, and it was met with positive reviews for its durable build, which involves a water-repellent nano-coating for protection against spills and splashes. Also praised was its admirable Android Marshmallow experience, acceptable performance, expandable storage, fast and reliable 4G connectivity and decent battery life. An average screen, questionable camera quality and poor audio output tried to rock the boat, but the phone ultimately came out on top, thanks to a very friendly price tag. The Moto G4 Play is a thoroughly satisfying smartphone, guaranteed to please any budget lover

    If you're on the hunt for an affordable phone with pretty long battery life, the Motorola Moto G4 Play deserves your attention. But the regular Moto G4 gives you even better features for just a little more cash.
