Motorola Moto X4 review

29 November 2017
Once Motorola's flagship phone, the X went through an episode of multiple personality disorder in 2015 (remember the Style, Play and Force?) only to be replaced at the top by the Moto Z last year. Feeling at home in the midrange, the X-series is now in its fourth generation. Meet the Moto X4.

The white on the screen is tot bluish, but redish (pink)!

Only average overall IMnsHO. Batt life does not perform as stated. Touchscreen is so sensitive it constantly doing things I did not intend like dialing a number I did not select or actually changing settings somehow (yeah, sounds Orwellian but I can only state what I have seen).
Buttons on side are REALLY hard to press (but that COULD be due to the case). Finding docs is next to impossible as filing system is not intuitive in any way and displays mostly empty folders which are irrelevant.
Tutorials are largely not very helpful as they gloss over specifics as if one is supposed to know how to operate the device already which if so, why would I need the tutorial???
Like I said, meh. Looking to replace it after one year.

I've bought two of these phones brand new, warrantied the, am using the return. The second crapped out within a week and I'm planning to send it in for warranty.
The specs are top-notch, best one could possibly ask for in this price class. Hardware is aweful though. The first unit would freeze and restart under multiple scenarios and got so bad it wouldn't even boot before failing. The second to be returned cannot get a GPS lock, even in an open field. It takes upwards of a minute and the GPS unit drops out entirely as soon as the unit gets warm.
The third unit I'm using has a compass that is off by almost exactly 180 degrees. doing the "figure-eight" calibration narrows the beam on Maps, but it's still the exact opposite of which direction I'm facing, IE I'm facing North, it shows South. Facing East, it shows West.
There is some strange power management on this model which causes the "recent apps" pane to not update as frequently as it should. Sometimes apps will just show a blank screen until you return to the home screen and cycle the lock.

Motorola have ruined the Android platform. Way worse than Samsung Android phones. Texting app repeatably crashes, Sim card hard to remove, lousy microphone and badly trained tech support help.
