Design & display

Water repellent

Don’t let a little accident ruin your phone – the Moto G4 Play has a water-repellent nano-coating. If it’s raining, or you knock over your drink, you can be safe in the knowledge your phone will be okay.

Impressive HD display

Videos and photos look great on the vivid 5-inch HD display – perfect for sharing your latest snaps or vines with friends.


Pretty pictures

Shoot sharp with the 8MP rear camera, which has a large f/2.2 aperture so photos look great even in low light.

The best selfies

Perfecting your selfie pose isn’t easy, which is why the 5MP front-facing camera lets you snap multiple shots so you can eliminate those blurry images and blinking eyes. It will even pick out the best shot for you.

Under the hood

Multitask with ease

A quad-core processor and clutter-free version of Android means you can speedily open and switch between apps without any frustrating lag.

Play for hours

Designed to see you from morning to night, the all-day 2,800mAh battery lets you work and play without worry.

Motorola Moto G4 Play is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Carl1959 from Moto G4 play So far I am on my third phone in approx 3 months. The problem is that it keeps cutting out. It is not the network as I have a very old Samsung and that is OK. I brought this because if the long battery life and it last for around 4-5 days with very light use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Android from What more do you need? Having decided on a Motorola G4 after talking to the younger members of my family, I went along to Carphonewarehouse to look at the full G4 vs the Play. Difficult choice but decided on the Play as it was smaller and less expensive. Having now 'set it up' it does everything I want and more, can't find anything I don't like, so very happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by preistly3 from Excellent phone for amount spent Great phone not too big and very light weight which i like easy too carry round but i do think buttons on side seem a bit cheap hope they dont fail, but its excellent value great screen, i had other older moto e but this is even better with a flash on camera and a removable battery.
