Moto G4 Plus Dual Sim - I got mine direct from Motorola and it has dual SIM. If you're a dual sim user there's a big improvement......read on......
I've owned the Moto Defy, Moto G 1st Gen, Moto G 2nd gen dual Sim, Moto X Play dual Sim and now I have the Moto G4 Plus dual Sim and here's my review:
Positives: Reasonable build quality, decent screen image, good call quality, reasonable mono 'loudspeaker', bright colourful screen, decent reception, camera pretty decent, video seems ok, fingerprint scanner is great, so very easy to unlock a pin protected phone with a finger or thumb, ideal when driving (joke!), performance of apps seems good, no idea about games,
Dual sim - now this may be a deal maker for many dual sim users - BOTH sims can be 3G at the same time or 4G and 3G at the same time, this is a massive improvement if you're a Three network user - nearly all dual SIm phones can only allow 3G/4G on one sim and the other sim is 2G only - this phone allows both sims to be 3G at the same time or 4G and 3G at same time (cannot be 4G on both) - only one sim can do voice and data while the other Sim is voice only, but it is still much more flexible than nearly all other dual sim phones. Video attached showing the 3G and 4G working together at the same time.
No compass, arrgh that's a bit annoying if you wander off the beaten track and need a compass for navigation and can't rely on GPS and/or a network connection. No NFC (no problem for me), slightly larger than the Moto X Play but same screen size, almost too big for one handed use but just about ok for my hands. (your hands may be different!), Turbocharger comes with the G4Plus but not the G4, it can get warm, some seem to suffer with heat problems, I had one instance where using the camera made the phone reboot, but only happened once.
It's a big improvement from the Moto G 2nd gen dual sim, better in nearly every possible way, but much less of an improvement over the Moto X Play which is really a slightly better phone in most respects, except for the dual sim feature mentioned above.
Video attached seems to be not displaying well so it's on Youtube, search for "moto g4 dual sim 3g+4g together"
