What is missing in Moto G4 compared to Moto G4 Plus?

Moto G4 is has almost the same specifications and design as that of Moto G4 Plus but with couple of missing features that are being mentioned below.

Fingerprint Scanner – The first thing missing from Moto G4 is the Fingerprint Sensor that is located on the front on Moto G4 Plus. Fingerprint sensor is a nifty security feature that allows you to unlock your smartphone or individual apps using the touch of your finger. So if you need fingerprint sensor then go with Moto G4 Plus otherwise Moto G4 will just do fine.

Lower Quality Camera – Moto G4 has lower quality primary camera of 13MP while Moto G4 Plus comes with a powerful 16MP primary camera with additional feature like Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) for capturing high quality pictures. The secondary camera remains at 5MP in both these phones. So if you want a powerful primary camera then go with Moto G4 Plus but if you are a casual shooter or do not use camera much then Moto G4 camera is not bad either.

Only 2GB RAM – Moto G4 comes with only 2GB RAM while in Moto G4 Plus there are two models available with 2GB and 3GB of RAM. This is not a huge letdown as 2GB RAM is also sufficient for any app, game and for smooth running of Android OS.
