Moto G4 has a Fairly well designed camera app. Pictures are decent enough when it comes to color accuracy. But details are not that great. Video are decent when you record Full HD videos. Slow motion videos can only be rerecorded in 540p, which has less detail. Selfies taken in good light are decent, but low-light shots with the front camera aren’t very good. On the whole, camera performance is just about satisfactory, and you will get better shots from the Moto G4 Plus.

Front camera: 5MP, f/1.8 aperture, 5 element lens

the rear camera that captures great detail outdoors and in extremely well-lit conditions. However, pictures taken in medium-to-low light show noise and over-saturation. HDR mode performs well as usual. Videos captured by the rear camera look decent, though color reproduction is slightly off here as well. The front-facing ‘selfie’ camera takes great pictures in well-lit conditions but the results are more miss than hit under low light.

Rear camera: 16MP Samsung ISOCELL sensor, f/2.0 aperture, Phase detection
Front camera: 5MP, f/2.0 aperture

Camera app is simple. Pictures  captured in daylight have good detail. Colour reproduction is good too. However, objects in focus lack a bit of detail and aren’t very sharp, but this is only visible once you zoom in. Images look good on the phone’s display though. The camera also struggles a bit with sharpness and depth under artificial lighting. The dual-tone flash is decent for nearby objects but don’t expect too much from it. 1080p video recording is good but very shaky due to lack of any software stabilisation. The front camera captures good selfies in daylight thanks to the same wide f/2.0 aperture. The focusing speed is good, even in low light.
