Lenovo Launches Hideous Moto G Series Phones

By -

Chinese company Lenovo, which now owns Motorola, unveiled three Moto smartphones. Dubbed as the Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus, and Moto G4 Play, these phones are guaranteed to leave you confused. While the G4 Plus is retailing in India, the other two in the line-up are soon expected to hit the stores.

While these three phones have quite a few differences, it is the hideous design language that binds them. For a last few years, Moto designs have been mediocre. However, in the latest iteration the company has stooped to a new low. Not only these handset look dated, the speaker grille and camera groove look out of place. I don’t even want to get started on the square home button on the G4 that doubles up as an eyesore.

Lenovo Moto G4

The Moto G4 comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD screen. It is powered by the Snapdragon 617 chipset. Featuring 2 GB RAM, 13 megaixel camera, and 3000 mAh battery, this Android 6 (Marshmallow) handset will be priced around Rs 10,000.

The Lenovo Moto G4 Plus too has a 5.5-inch Full HD screen and Snapdragon 617 SoC (System on Chip). The handset comes in 2 GB, 3 GB, and 4 GB variants. Rest of its specs are similar too. The ‘Plus’ comes in the form of a 16 megapixel camera and a fingerprint sensor, which is missing on the G4. The Lenovo Moto G4 Plus is priced at Rs 13,500 (2 GB RAM).

The last and the least powerful handset is the Moto G4 Play. It is likely to be a replacement for the Moto E series. The G4 Play backed by a Snapdragon 410 chip and has 2 GB RAM. As opposed to the Full HD screen found on its siblings, the G4 Play settles for an HD one. It packs-in an 8 megapixel camera and 2800 mAh battery. The handset is likely to be priced under Rs 10,000.
