The challenge was not easy. Overcome the weight of fame of the legendary Moto G a smartphone chosen as the best end of the year by different means in its successive versions, seemed something really difficult to achieve. But Motorola has not wavered in the commitment and the expected fourth generation of the device comes loaded with heavy ammunition in its chassis and performance. Now the manufacturer has exceeded the minimum low-cost label that showed the previous versions and now it is located in a position of economic mobile with premium pretensions. But always, a purchase option that should be included in all the pools.
What was the true merit of the Moto G in origin?

In the G4 Plus, optics reaches 16 MP and has a laser autofocus system, and there is a Pro mode for those who want to venture to set aperture, exposure and other options.
