  • With an uncommonly tough screen and similarly robust battery life, Motorola has created a seriously solid flagship phone.

  • Rating Unavailable

    Yet, clearly, the Moto X Force isn't going to try and impress users who go for the next big thing every season. It was built to last and then went on to tick most of the big hardware checkboxes: screen resolution, chipset, camera, and battery. The result is a solid performer that gives its owner a peace of mind and doesn't stop when the going gets tough.


  • Strong, fast and very long-lasting, the Moto X Force delivers something different for a flagship – and for the most part it works.


  • The Moto X Play does a lot right with an impressive camera, superb battery life and attractive price, but there's a frustrating number of missing features and options.


  • Overall, the Moto X Play is a decent mid-range phone. But, it's not the great upgrade which Moto X owners were looking for. The camera is good, as is the screen, but performance could be better - as could battery life. Had Motorola offered the dual-SIM version in the UK and made the phone waterproof, it would have had enough to be a decent alternative to the OnePlus 2. For many, this more powerful rival will be more appealing. It's also cheaper and has optical stabilisation and the option to shoot 4K video.


  • The Moto X Play is a headset that appears to have one primary focus: long-lasting battery life. If you want an endurance champion, then the Moto X Play could well be the handset for you. There are other positives too. The design can be personalised, the camera experience is improved over the last generation, and the minimal bloatware on board makes for a solid handset with slick performance as mid-range handsets go.


  • It's not a handset with universal appeal, but for those looking for a big screen flagship at a decent price the X Style is an excellent option.

    The combination of Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset and 3GB of RAM is capable, though not the most powerful out there.
    The device's cellular connectivity options are among the best in the business.
    Both cameras are excellent and a massive improvement from past efforts by Motorola.
    The microSD card slot is a welcome addition to the product family.
    Motorola's Turbo Charger is quick and effective.
    The stereo speakers are another excellent addition to the Moto X lineup.


  • - While I can forgive Motorola its shortcomings with low-light performance, its native camera app is downright awful.
    - It’s a beefy octa-core chip and currently the CPU of choice for the majority of mid-to-high-range phones.
    - The Moto X Style's overall performance is fantastic.
    - Gaming is equally impressive.
    - Display is the best; it lights up the screen with any incoming notifications.


  • Both the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus are some well-done mid-rangers, marrying performance that should be adequate for casual users with some very attractive pricing.But a lot of companies give us well-executed phones; are the new Moto G4s anything special? Well, that's sadly to say a bit of a “no.”


  • It’s big, but the Moto G4 Plus is outstanding and adds some high-end flair to a budget champion.


  • When we first saw the Motorola Moto G4 and G4 Plus, we though the Plus was hands-down the one to choose. Having used both handsets for weeks and days at a time, however, we've taken an about-turn on that initial feeling: the Plus does have plenty of positives, in that it can handle the day-to-day with no troubles and lasts out for a decent period of time per charge, but in the wider context of the smartphone market it has its minuses too. In a sense the G4 Plus feels like a OnePlus 2.

    - The app switcher has a neat card interface that allows you to select the app you need by swiping up or down.
    - One finger swipe from the top of the homescreen will open the notification area, which features a clean look in Android Lollipop.
    - Motorola's custom gesture controls are also quite helpful on this instance.
    - Its browsing interface is very basic, but there are powerful editing options.

    It's still one of the best value phones you can buy despite the slight price rise, which is why we still recommend it.


  • - This smartphone still is inconspicuous, curvaceous and symmetrically attractive.
    - Some rivals have better screens or support larger memory cards, but these top-tier features are pointless if they fail at the basics.
    - The resulting photos look fantastic on the smartphone screen and commendable on computer monitors.
