Question- How is the Design and Build Quality?

Answer- While the Moto G series may be branded Lenovo now, the Moto G4 Plus retains many of the good things about the old Motorola branded Moto G phones. The front of the phone is bare, leaving the users to concentrate on the display. The only new addition to the front is a button below the screen – it’s a fingerprint sensor.

Otherwise, the Moto G4 Plus feels really good and light in the hands.
