Smaller Moto 4G with Better Specs?

I was REALLY disappointed in the size increase with the new Moto  G4 family  --except for the 5" screen Play model of course, which I'm now considering getting...if the camera is good.


Does anyne have any idea how good the 8 megapixel camera is with its bigger sensor ( I haven't found any site that reviews it) ? Or am I better off getting the Moto G's third gen  model, if that has a decent camera.


And if anyone from Motorola is monitoring this forum, how about putting the 4G Plus' specs into  the Play or a Moto E body? That would be a winner; Apple is having quite a bit of success with the iPhone SE. Make the Moto G thicker if you have to, but something with a 5.5" screen is unwieldy - and I don't have small hands..

Re: Smaller Moto 4G with Better Specs?

I guess we are in the minority, but I'm with bijom.  Instead of making bigger phones, just improve the specs.  I do not like a big phone, I want something that fits EASILY in my pocket, but is powerful.


I currently have 4 Motorola phones, 3 of them are still active on cellular networks. I also originally purchased them when they all came out new.  I have the E2 (Currently Sprint), G4 Play (Currently AT&T), E4 (Not currently connected), E5 Plus (Currently T-mobile).


My favorite phone for the feel is my E2.  I love the size.  I love the slightly curved back that fits into the hand.  The battery life was great for the phone too.  I use this phone all the time for my driving directions and Lyft.  Also if I'm in a spot where my other phones don't get service I may use this phone.


I would have stuck with the E2 all these years if I didn't keep running out of space for apps.  I upgraded to the G4 Play so I would have twice the storage, which was great until about a year ago.  So just recently I upgraded to the E5 Plus because I was wanting to double my app space again. The E4 isn't used because it was a free phone when I originally signed up with MetroPCS, so I took it as a backup phone.


Now that you are making the phones with less bevel around the screen, you could make a 5" screen phone the same size a the E2 was, and it would be great.


Here are the specs for the perfect new E line budget phone:

4.5" or 5" edge-to-edge display 720p

2500 mAh battery



8MP Rear Camera with Flash

5MP Front Camera

No Fingerprint Scanner

As far as processors, whatever is a budget processor currently; 1.4 Quad core is fine.


Thanks for letting me give my opinion.
