Inside is an advanced 1.5 GHz octa-core processor with 550 MHz Adreno 405 GPU for quick-fire multitasking and the option for 3D gaming.
As good as a digital camera, the 13-megapixel camera on the Moto G4 has dual LED flash, 4 x digital zoom and ultra-fast f2.0 lens to capture high-quality photos in almost any environment, day or night. Its High Dynamic Range (HDR) mode makes it easy to snap the brightest highlights and darkest shadows to record rich colours and exceptional detail.
The 5-megapixel front-facing ‘selfie’ camera with wide-angle lens allows you to get a large group of friends in the selfie shot, so nobody feels left out. Plus, the ‘Quick Capture’ feature means you can launch the rear camera with two twists of the wrist, then double twist again to switch to the front camera, ensuring you never miss a shot.
Loaded with the new Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS to provide you with improved functions and features such as the redesigned home screen with permanent Google search bar, including vertical scrolling on the app drawer and predictive app search to help you find what you’re looking for.
Another addition is the ‘Now On Tap’ function as it interprets what’s on your phone’s screen to know when to deliver relevant search results. For example, if you’re texting a friend and mention a title of a film or book, then an automatic Google search will be conducted to bring you the latest reviews or sites where you can buy the mentioned title. Plus, Marshmallow’s ‘Doze’ feature works to preserve battery life by switching background tasks, which aren’t in full use, to hibernate.
The Moto G4 offers a MicroSD card slot that can support a memory card up to 128GB – perfect for when you’re going on holiday and want to travel light.
