Motorola’s latest super-mid foray into Australia is here, with the arrival of the Moto G4 Plus this weekend, following the announcement a little while back. The Moto G4 Plus will be available in two configurations, a 16GB variant with 2GB RAM for just $399, and a 32 GB variant with 3GB of RAM for $449.
Motorola are tapping into a growing market segment with the G4 Plus: those who want flagship features, but without the flagship cost. In this segment we can find teenagers, older folks, and many in between, who want the same kind of features on their mobiles as everyone else, but either can’t (or simply don’t want) to spend up to $1000 or more on “just a phone”.
The Moto G4 Plus could be just the answer. There’s a big focus on the camera performance here, with Moto promising lots of improvements. We know it’s a 16MP camera, utilising two focus detection techniques for faster, sharper focus. This should deliver better results both night and day, and with other performance improvements, the G4 Plus promises much in the realm of photography.
The specs are rounded out with a large 3,000 mAh battery which promises a day or two worth of power, a fast octo-core processor and 5.5″ full HD display, and all this in a package costing well under $500. Should you manage to tax that battery, just 15 minutes on the charger delivers six hours of power.
