______________________________________________________
The 4G in the Argos description just means it's a 4G phone (ie LTE) rather than meaning 4th Gen. "Sim Free Motorola Moto G 4G Mobile Phone."

They don't state Moto G 4th Gen as the OP has because it isn't.

______________________________________________________

@Pondlife, Argos states otherwise:

"Hi Paul,

This is the Motorola G Play 4th Generation

Thank you for using Argos Q&A"

argos.co.uk/sta…htm

I've updated the OP with the correct image as the one shown on the Argos site is of Moto G4, not Moto G play. I've also added in the more detailed specs, and to clarify; there are no 8GB ROM 1GB RAM model - it is only available as 16GB ROM and 2GB RAM.

Nothing on the link says it's the Play edition?
Argos description says 280mah battery.

Good old Argos.

Introducing the Moto G Play, the phone that gives you more of what you love. Enjoy the fast, reliable performance of a quad core processor when you're watching videos or playing games. Count on a bettery that lasts all day and boost performance with a pure, clutter free version of android. Moto G Play. Entertainment for less.

Except for all the mentions of Moto G Play in the description and all the specs being the low end phones.

It's definitely the Play on offer here as the Moto G 4th Gen is at argos.co.uk/sta…htm for £160
its the G Play, the G4 has a 5.5inch screen and 13MP camera

It's ok though it has a dast processor
"Watch videos and play games with a dast, quad core processor, 5" hd display and 4g speed."
And a front camer
"Shoot crystal clear pictures with the 8mp front camer and 5mp selfie camera."

G3 isnt 1080p - 720 x 1280 pixels (~294 ppi pixel density)
Plus the battery is smaller Non-removable Li-Ion 2470 mAh battery vs 2800mah
2gb ram
better off going for the Regular G4 or G4 plus. If budget allows!

Which bit of the following number is it that makes you think that?

"Memory information: 16000MB/. "
I think this item has been confused with the Moto G 4G phone...

I don't think it is the 4th Generation device, as per the description...

G4 Going solid still, no need to switch
Typical Argos always confusing products/versions/descriptions.

Just to clear things up there are 3 new 4th gen phones

Moto G4 Plus
Moto G4
Moto G4 Play

The play is the cheapest and does have a lower res screen, suprised to see this though as its still not listed on the UK site US only.

motorola.com/us/…ily
This phone is basically a Moto G 3rd gen. They beefed up the battery and replaced the 13mp camera with the Moto G 2nd gen 8mp camera, so now Lenovo have a entry level budget phone to go with their mid-range phone the Moto G4 and G4 Plus.

well said, basically a dowgrade if you have moto g 3rd gen
This is a crap price. The 3rd Gen is a better buy (faster processor, better camera), and it costs less. The only improvement on the Play is the larger battery.

Just another way for Lenovo to make money by targeting the budget end of the smartphone world.

The Play starts at 16GB, you wont get a 3rd Gen 16GB for less money than this.

I would still buy a 3rd Gen over this though if the 16GB version dropped in price, personally I wouldn't buy a 8GB phone even with Marshmallow and adoptable storage.

Some confusion here.

It is 4th gen...but not the G4 or G4 plus....it is the G4 play

It is more similar to the G3 but with 16GB and a few other mods. Not worth the extra price though, compared to the G3 being about £80 at vodaphone. Not sure how this has hit 300º. Cold deal for me

I do however think the G4 or G4 plus is much better than both the above. but obviously more pricey.
Why do Motorola have to release loads of different phones with pretty much the same name?! makes things very confusing!!
