Motorola Moto X4 Hands On – techENT
The Motorola Moto X4 is the latest of their X line. Being the 4th generation device it comes with some of the best hardware you can possibly ask for in its price range. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 Octa-Core processor clocking in at 2.2GHz is paired with 3GB of RAM to run a Vanilla Android 7.1 Nougat which will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo when available. In the graphics department you find a Adreno 508 that is actually no slouch in gaming either. The IP68 dust and water-resistant rated body contains 32GB of storage (expandable up to 256GB via MicroSD) and a 3,000mAh battery that should power the device for the entire day. It even has Bluetooth 5.0 to ensure that it does not drain the battery any more that it has to. The battery is also packed with fast-charging technology through the Moto X4’s USB Type-C port though so you should never worry about running out of power. Out the back you see a watch bezel design that adds to its premium look encasing two 12-Megapixel f/2.0 camera modules with dual pixel autofocus technology for sharp photos even in low-light. That brilliant photo you took using the dual camera set up is transmitted on the gorgeous IPS LCD display at 1,080 x 1,920 pixels protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Above the display is where you find the secondary 8-Megapixel front-facing camera.
The design language this time is glass and aluminium. To be more specific the device is covered in glass at both the front and the back side of it, framed by aluminium at the sides. The watch like bezel that encases the dual cameras, as mentioned earlier is meant to add a sort of premium feel to the device itself. Other than that, it brings no other significant function. There is a fingerprint sensor below the display that doubles as Moto’s one button navigation program (optional) to eliminate any on-screen buttons, which in our opinion is quite brilliant. It is not a home button that it may seem to be though so be mindful of that. The Motorola Moto X4 comes in either Super Black and Sterling Blue.
