Motorola Moto G 4th Gen - 16GB (just announced) - £143.65 after student discount - or £159 with coupon @ Motorola

Found 1st Jun 2016
The new Moto G4 (2016), announced a couple of weeks back (this is the Gen4 model, not to be confused with the old "4G" model), seems like a good deal.

Price on the Motorola site is £169, but I used:
-Student discount (UNIDAYS) at 15%
This brought the price down to £143.65, which I think is a very good price for this phone.
If you cannot get a UNIDAYS discount, use code UKWELCOME10 to get £10 off.

NOTE 6-June: mine has just arrived and I can confirm it is a dual-SIM model.

Specification:
Android™ 6.0.1, Marshmallow - as lean as it gets, no bloatware and with quick upgrades for the next 2 years (based on previous experience)

Please note that the Quick Charge 2.0 technology means users can get up to eight hours of usage from just a 15 minute charge and a full charge in around an hour. BUT the quick charger is not included, you need to buy it separately, but on Amazon they start around £5.
Also, strangely, this model does not have NFC.

As people have been asking, here are the main differences between the new one (gen4) and last year's MotoG (gen3):
Biger screen - 5.5 inch v 5.0 inch
approx 40% better screen resolution - 1080 x 1920 pixels (401ppi) v 720 x 1280 pixels (294 ppi)
approx. 80% faster processor (at least on paper, see geekbench benchmarks)
takes bigger SD card (up to 128 GB, gen 3 goes to 32 GB)
Apparently it has a gyroscope, the gen3 did not
bigger battery (3000 mAh v 2470 mAh)
Fast charging (with the right charger, see my comment above)

I am not active enough on HUKD to use pm apparently. If you still need this pm me your email and I'll email you the code.

Thankyou Adam1571 I have just Pm you

There is no 3gb G4 plus option... I was waiting for this version

What us Unidays? Do you have to be a student?

Thinking about this, the Lenovo K5 or the Wileyfox Swift. Any other suggestions please? Would consider last years Moto G if it came down in price a bit more but at the moment there's not much difference between the price of last year's 16gb model and this year's model at the moment.
Also wishing Motorola would offer educational discount as well student discount!

Get a Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Pro for this money > Snapdragon 650 is a huge leap on the old 617

Xiaomi global rom is available too

What us Unidays? Do you have to be a student?



Unidays is a student discount/perks website where you need a valid ac.uk email address to sign up. I'm not a student, but my university provided me with an Alumni account that comes with an ac.uk email and Unidays accepted that

​Some of us prefer branded models like Motorola with UK support. The Xiaomi us a decent phone but if it goes wrong......

How is this better than the 2gb ram version 3rd generation? Apart from coming with mm but shouldn' the 3rd generation get mm anyways?

Is that literally the only difference?

Think it's got a bigger battery and can use the fast chargers as well?

can someone email me the unidays code

The Xiaomi doesn't support band 20, I think?

Can i borrow a unidays code from someone please?

G4 Plus is there, just have to choose it in the build options

no compass?

Towelie

Is that literally the only difference?



​3000mAh battery. Other subtle improvements

Doesn't let you use both codes on the G4 Plus. Anyone else have this issue?

G4 Plus is there, just have to choose it in the build options

Banned

Does this phone have nfc

Not the 3gb ram one

when this will b available on amazon or tesco direct

15% off the price gives you £143.65. £10 code does not work on top of the 15% discount.

Please amend post to reflect this.

does any one havr unidays code

Going by how my Moto X Style performs with the same battery, expect to be scrambling for a charger by 3pm. On a good day.

Remember, this isn't the flagship

Keeping an eye on this. I'm still on the 1st gen.

It's starting to get a tad slow!
