The Moto X4 is commendable for a midrange mobile phone, but it's also conflicted.

Digit

Compact, premium design but slow and overall underwhelming camera

from Digit

The Moto X4 has a good display, just enough battery life and dependable performance. Yet, it's a phone that I would only recommend to compact phone lovers. There are plenty of phones with better cameras and similar performance, that also happen to be cheaper than this device.

Phonedog

Deviates too much from the expressive options the Moto X line

from Phonedog

All things considered, it’s a decent deal. My only real complaint is how slippery it is and how fragile it feels with glass on both sides, but if you’re normally one to put a case on your phone anyway (or if you simply like that type of design) it’s a non-issue.

Offers quite similar specs to the Moto G5s Plus on paper

from Recombu

Motorola’s X series smartphones are back, with enough of a bang to make us glad for their return. While the Moto G5s and G5s Plus offer strong value for money, the Moto X4 delivers plenty of worthy extras - including full water resistance and some useful software features - to make an upgrade worth considering.

In a tough spot

from Pocket-lint

There was a time when the Moto X was the business. In the here and now, however, the Moto X4 simply doesn't live up to its predecessors' high-ranking abilities. For times have changed and, as it stands, the X4 is outshone by the not-much-pricier OnePlus 5 to a considerable degree.

Specs and features are good for the price

from Tech Advisor

It's slower than the Honor 9, and has half the storage as standard, but if you'd prefer the water-resistance over the extra speed, the Moto X4 is a great choice for anyone that can’t afford the hefty price tags of the current flagships.

Back with a bang

from Talk Android

The Moto X4 is still a really, really good phone with just a few quirks. Yeah, the camera could use a little work, and that screen’s not quite where we want it to be, but for $400, it’s a really great device with a premium design that’s well above its price point.

Phone Scoop

A classier handset that covers the basics with style

from Phone Scoop

The Moto X4 from Motorola is a great alternative to the Z-branded, mod-compatible line of handsets. It doesn't pack the truly high-end specs of the Z2 Force, but it has a classy design that puts it in a different league when compared to Motorola's lower-end G series.

Return of the X

from Android Authority

The Moto X4 brings the Android One Program and Project Fi into a simple package with very little frills. While it may not sound like the most exciting device on paper, the Moto X4's true appeal is its affordable price, timely updates, and how it will make Project Fi more easily accessible to consumers.

The bar set by past Moto X phones was too high

from TechRadar

The Moto X4 makes it clear that the true successor to the Moto X line is the Moto Z line. It's a mid-range phone with Android One and Google Fi, but otherwise a small upgrade from a Moto G5 Plus or Moto G5S Plus, with a bump in price that sits in the awkward middle of Motorola’s flagship and budget phones.

This is not the Moto X you're looking for

from Android Police

The Moto X4 isn't a terrible phone, but it's not good enough for the price. It's nice to see Motorola make water-resistant hardware, but I wish they hadn't done it with this fussy glass design. The more I look at it, the more I just don't like the style. The camera hump is an eyesore, and adding the flashy embellishments is not helping.
