What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

Top Customer Reviews
First of all, the build and feel of the phone is very good, not super premium like some $600 + phones, but its still very good.
the fit is tight and uniform, no gaps around the screen or back cover or anything. the back cover snaps on and off without problems. the phone looks to be very well made.
The android system takes up almost 10GB of storage, leaving the user with about 54.5 GB.
CPU-Z shows there is 3643 MB of RAM
The buttons for power and volume feel great, make a nice little clicky feel when you push them, and the power button is textured for an easy way to feel the difference between them.
the finger print scanner, is very useful, (although it doesn't serve as a button for anything) it wakes the phone up and unlocks it super fast.
I would estimate about 1/4 of a second or faster. So far finger print scanner is great, way better than i expected.
The screen looks great, full HD 1080P, colors have a warm look to them , the whites are not as blue looking as my Samsung phones screen.
IT is a full 5.5 inch display, and yes the buttons are on screen, But can go away in certain apps, to give you the full screen to use, like when watching videos for instance.
the sound is very good, although it only has one front facing speaker at the top. it is loud and clear.
Call quality has been excellent, and when calling an iphone 6, about two or three feet away, with both phones on speaker. the Moto G4 Plus had no signs of feedback, or echoing, indicating it does an excellent job of noise cancellation. the iphone 6 however sounded like a horror movie.
The UI (user interface) is slick and basic android. fast and responsive. the Moto gestures work well as far as the double twist for camera, and the double chop for flashlight. I have not tested the others yet.
Supposedly this phone is Water and dust resistant, but i will not be testing that, for obvious reasons.
The camera seems to be great so far, low light photos look pretty good, and there is even a pro mode that lets you tweak all the aspects of the camera. if you hold down the shoot button, it takes photos in rapid succession, pretty cool feature.
This phone also lets you record slow motion videos which is fun.
Some of the cons of this phone i can think of, are:
No NFC, not a big deal to me personally, because I never plan on using android pay anytime soon at least, and I never bump my phone to share stuff with other people. I've had NFC on past phones for years, and never used it, except to try it out to see if it worked.
No Magnetometer / Compass. I'm not sure of the full implications of not having a compass are, but GPS and navigation still work, because they rely on the GPS sensors, this phone also uses GLONASS, which is just the Russian version of the United states GPS system, twice as many satellites, means twice the reliability, and more accurate and faster positioning.
Since there is no Compass, google sky map will not work correctly, which is big bummer for me.
ON THE OVER HEATING ISSUE:
I live in south Texas, and tested this phone outside with the camera app, taking dozens of photos and using CPU-Z i never noticed temps over 55 C on any of the sensors, most were about 50 C or below. also the camera app never started lagging and stuttering.
I will update this review if anything changes, and after a month or two when i have spent more time with the phone.
EDIT: after using this phone for 4 days now. I bumped it from a 4 to a 5 star. The battery life is very good. And easily last all day. In fact I've had the phone with me at work now since 7 am this morning, using it off and on pretty often. It is now 2:30 pm and I still have 70% left. Pretty impressive.
The screen looks great in full sun with full brightness setting, no problems at all.
The more I use this phone the more I like it.
Phone retruned in working order. Motorola does not even tell you what they did to it. It took around a week to get it back which is not to bad but they should list what was done to it. Also the website now lists the device out of warranty which is wrong. I expect a phone to last 4 years. So while they fixed it I have zero confidence in moto products.
6 Month Update. From 5 stars to 1 star. The phone will not charge. After 6 months that is ridiculous. These phones should last years. Most likely it is the connection between the cable (tried a bunch) and phone but who knows. I have done an RMA to Motorola and we will see if they fix it any time soon. I will update. If they are prompt the rating will go back up if it takes weeks it will stay a 1.
2 Week Update.
Screen: The resolution is excellent. It is full HD and compares well to my Note 4. I played with a Note 5 over the 4th and the screen resolution of that is the same. Yes the Notes have 1440 x 2560 resolution vs the Moto G4s 1080 x 1920 but on a 5.5 inch screen it does not matter. MOTO has a DPI of 401 which makes the difference unnoticeable.
Screen Size. The MOTO G4 has a 5.25 inch screen. They list a 5.5 but as the buttons are on the screen you lose .25 inches of screen that you don't on other phones that have physical buttons in the boarder'. I have found that these disappear when in apps so you get the space back and a simple swipe up brings them back.
Android: Version 6.01. This is as close to stock Android which is a plus. There is no bloatware that I could find. It would be great if it was stock android but it is really tough to get a good stock android phone. I am hoping that since it is close to stock that updates will come in a timely fashion. Samsung is the worst for updates. If you have the latest flagship phone from Samsung you will be lucky if you get the latest android updates after every other company has updated their phones. Then you have to wait on the carriers who are just as bad. If you have a phone like my Samsung Note 4 good luck getting updates. I am hoping MOTO is better at putting out updates but really don't know. You at least get rid of 1 level by taking out the carrier updates.
Battery: I set the phone up and was using it 100% of the time from about 4:30pm to after midnight and ran the phone down. I then forgot to plug it in over night and it lost almost no power over night 18% down to 13%. Charging with included turbo charger: 30 Mins it went from 13% to 47%. At 1 hour it was at 88%. it hit 100% at 1 hour 40 mins.
After 3 days I would say the battery life is not the best. If you don't use it it will last forever. My Samsung Note 4 would be way down with minimal use. It goes down alot faster with use. From 7:30 AM to midnight it went from 100% down to 15%. Most of that when I started using it after work. I am still playing with settings so this will also be updated. 7:30 to 3:30 I am down to 80% from a full charge.
Update: I have gone through a number of full battery cycle and the battery seems to be holding up well. I got a day and a half on my last full battery and today I have 66% left from 9:00 am to 10:00 pm. I am happy if it lasts a day as I will always charge it overnight. I just don;t want to be on empty at the end of the day and the last few days seem to be holding up. I still have not tried to optimize anything.
After 2 weeks of use I find I have no issues with battery life. I am very happy with it.
Storage. Android OS on the Moto G4 plus takes 9.49 GB so a 16GB phone is no longer an option. It really has never been and option. If you are looking at the 16GB version of the MOTO G4 or the plus keep looking. This goes for any Android phone. The upgrade to 64gb was only $50 and included an upgrade of memory from 2gb to 4gb. It is well worth it. Unlike Apple and Samsung who seem to think you should bend over to have a storage upgrade Motorola comes in with a better price.
Micro SD: I added 128gb card to store music on and it works great. I have read and suspect it supports up to 256 but those are still cost prohibitive.
Finger Print Sensor: The plus has a finger print sensor that works beautifully. I have 2 other devices that have finger print sensors. The Note 4 who's finger print sensor was very poor and was unusable and the Galaxy Tab S2 8" which seems to function ok. I have had no issue with the MOTO G4 finger print scanner and would rate it superior to either of the Samsung versions I have.
App performance: Everything is very smooth and snappy. At this point the OCTACore processor and touch of the screen are excellent. We have gotten to the point when phone CPUs have outpaced need for 95% of the public maybe even 100%. I don't play high entensity 3d games and those might be an issue but I cannot report on that as everything I use works great.
WIFI Performance: This works fine. I was getting 50mb a second download off my AC2350 netgear router. Wired I get 130mb second. Once again overkill. I get the same rate from my Samsung Galaxy tab S2 and it supports AC.
Look and feel: The size is great. Just a little smaller in your hand than the Note 4 but it makes a lot of difference. I have smaller hands and was always fumbling with the note 4. The MOTO G seems much more natural.
No NFC so no Android pay. I still see absolutely no reason to use android pay so it is not a big deal to me. I either have to get my phone out and make the payment or I have to get out my wallet and make the payment. Not a lot of difference. They tried to solve a problem that didn't exist. I guess they assume we are all so consumed with with our online presence that our phone is always in our hands. If you are in line using your phone the person behind you should smack it out of your hands for being rude.
Blutooth: Connected a earbud and my PC. Both function fine with no issues.
Pokemon Go. Runs fine. seems to have the same issues as my son and daughters iphone 6 and 6s and my old Samsung Note 4. It is a battery hog on all phones and has to be restarted every once in a while. These are common to all 4 phones though.
Price: At 299 the 64GB Moto G Plus (4th Gen) is a steal. It Compares to at least last years flag ship models.
Storage:. 64gb is enough for most but if not you can add 128gb micro SD.
Screen: Crystal Clear screen very responsive
Setup: Very easy to setup and install apps from prior phone
Apps: Run perfectly well with no slow downs. .
Screen size of 5.25. Finger print scanner is not the home button and you waste .25" of screen for the 3 buttons.
Speak is a little tinny. Fine for voice calls but you would never want to listen to music over it. earbuds are good and you can always get a set of bluetooth speackers.
After 2 weeks I see no reason to buy a Galaxy Note 7 or Iphone 7 for $700 to $800. You are basically paying $500 for less storage, to go from a Great phone camera to the best phone camera and to get NFC. My daughter who is an Apple iLemming even liked it. After using it for a week I gave my wife my Note 4 to upgrade her note 2. This phone is great and I would definitely look at the next one when I need a new phone in a few years.
Update 9/16/2016: I still think this is a great phone and am happy with my purchase. Much better than spending 700+ on an exploding galaxy note 7. It does get warm when playing pokemon go and charging at the same time. Other than that I really have no complaints. I do think we will see an explosion of 200-300 phones over the next year as people realize that while the flagship lines have better processors those processors are more than they need. Its like the PC market. Unless you play heavy duty online games, a $400 computer is the same as a $1000+ computer.
