Motorola Moto G4 Plus Cons:

- Overall Design (personally did not like the small square home button)
The Moto G4 Plus is great device and carrying on the legacy of its predecessor it comes packed with good specifications and decent design along with the inclusion of a Fingerprint sensor in the Home button. The OS is one thing which always attracts me with almost no bloatware and minimal Moto Apps it is nearly stock Android. One thing which is a let down is the lack of Water Resistance feature which was a great feature in Moto G 3rd Gen. Overall it is a decent device to get in the price range.
