Amazon launched another Exclusive – Moto G4 Play while going on cutthroat competition with Flipkart’s Red Mi 3S Prime sales. Due to the Moto G4 Play Specs and Price, this page is flooded with positive ratings and comments.
This 4th Gen phone is a wonder at the price of Rs. 8,999. If holidays and events like Christmas or New year are close, we have seen this phone to go for sale in range of INR 8,000 to 8,4999.
Moto G4 Play boasts a decent 8MP main camera with 5MP selfie or front facing camera. It has Dual LED for a change which balances the exposure during a photo click and avoids your clicks to be overexposed with whiteness.
The FPS remains the same at 30 fps and resolution for video recording is 1080p at highest.
Android 6.01 Marshmallow Operating system is now quite a standard in all Moto phones and this stays the same here. Lenovo has preserved the stock ROM feel as in their all phones and UI is left to standard.
With 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor and 450 MHz Adreno 306 GPU there seems to be pretty downgraded from previous Moto G4. But again, Moto G4 and G4 Play has price difference of 2-3 K flat and in Indian rupee that is much.
RAM stays at 2GB standard with internal memory at 16GB. This is expandable to 128GB.
Moto G4, E3 and G4 play may sometimes look the same but they are not. Moto Display is an addition here to Moto G4 Play. It also boasts One hand mode which is not there in E3 Power.
It has a 12.7 centimeters (5inch) HD display, 720p HD (1280×720) resolution with 294 ppi pixel density. Gorilla Glass 3 comes as a standard and Motorola Water Repellent nano coating is there to save your phone from splashes and rain.
At a price tag of 8,999 a battery of 2800 mAh may not sound much for many people. However, we should always remember that it is equally important how the OS and other hardware are optimized. With Motorola phones, the OS is nearly bloat free and hardware is amazingly optimized that a 3500 mAh phone is always unable to compete with Moto’s 2800.
It has Rapid charging feature and comes with 10W rapid charger. In 15 minutes, this phone is charged for 5 hours of use as per declarations.
Moto G4 play is a 4G phone (VoLTE) with dual SIM (micro+nano with adaptor) and dual-standby (4G+4G). Wifi and Bluetooth Low Energy 4.0 comes as standard.
Every Moto is quite different than the previous one when it comes to design. However, there is not much difference this time other than texture. Moto G4 and G4 play looks almost same.

While Moto G4 play specs and price may not justify to many people, but the people who are fans and previous users will be delighted with this addition to Moto Family. Without a Fingerprint sensor and lower battery power, this phone might struggle with Flipkart’s heavy contender Red Mi 3S Prime which offers Fingerprint sensor, with 32 GB storage and 3 GB RAM at same pricing. It also has track record of going Out of stock every now and then.
