Motorola Moto X4 review

Phonebook

The Moto X4's dialer is simple and clean. There are only three tabs: favorites, call history, and contacts. The dial pad is accessed by the blue button at the bottom. From here, you can use alpha-numeric input of the dialer to search for a name. The dialer has an integrated call blocker, which can be found in the dialer's Settings.

Do Not Disturb mode settings can be found under "Sound" in the Settings app. Here, you can fine tune which calls or notification have priority. You can also set rules for when the phone should automatically go into Do Not Disturb mode.

Loudspeaker

The Moto X4 employs the same loudspeaker design as the Moto Z2 Play and Z2 force - the earpiece is also the loudspeaker, a single front-firing one. The best bit about this setup is that it's great for multimedia - a down-firing implementation does direct the sound away from you.

In our testing, the Moto X4 didn't perform as loud as the Z2s, but still managed to deserve a spot in the 'Good' category.
