Experience the next generation of dynamic handheld performance with the black 4th Gen. Moto G Plus XT1644 from Motorola. This smartphone is powered by a 1.5 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor and 2GB of dedicated RAM. It comes equipped with 16GB of storage and includes a microSD slot that supports microSDXC cards with up to 128GB of memory for additional storage capacity. The integrated micro-USB interface allows you to connect the device for mass-storage purposes and also serves as a charging port.

The Moto G Plus houses a 5.5" LCD touchscreen display, which features a 1920 x 1080 resolution that fully supports all your HD content. For your photo and video needs, the G Plus features two powerful cameras: a rear-facing 16MP lens with laser and phase detect auto-focus, color balancing dual-LED flash, auto HDR, 1080p video capture, and several other enhancements built-in. A front-facing 5MP wide-angle lens is built-in as well.

The Moto G Plus is also well-equipped for wireless communication. It features Bluetooth 4.1 + LE (Smart Ready) technology for pairing with other Bluetooth-enabled devices, and 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi for high-speed Internet connectivity. GPS with GLONASS is also on-board for using compatible location services and applications. The Moto G Plus's 3000mAh battery is designed to provide "All Day" mixed usage on a full charge, and thanks to TurboPower technology, it can provide up to 6 hours of power from only 15 minutes of charging. For added convenience and security, the Moto G Plus features a fingerprint sensor that can accurately read your finger regardless of how you're holding it.

Note: The XT1644 is the North American Variant of the Moto G Plus. It will run on any GSM network that uses cell frequencies supported by the device, including AT&T and T-Mobile. It will also work with certain CDMA carriers, such as Verizon and Sprint. Current Verizon SIM cards can be transferred to the new device, though the carrier may limit the purchase of new SIM cards for unlocked phones. Since this device is unlocked, functionality for certain carrier-specific features cannot be guaranteed. Please confirm with your carrier that it supports the Moto G Plus before purchasing.

GSM + CDMA / 4G LTE Wireless Connectivity
This phone is designed to work on select GSM and CDMA networks and is 4G LTE capable. LTE is an advanced cellular network data protocol capable of data speeds so fast that they compete with wired broadband Internet providers. With an LTE connection, this phone should have no problem streaming HD video, downloading apps, uploading photos, or anything else that requires a high-speed data connection. The phone is also backwards compatible with 3G and 2G data for instances when you can't get LTE. In addition to cellular wireless, this phone also features Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.
North American Variant / US Compatible LTE
The XT1644 is a US variant of the Moto G Plus. The XT1644's LTE radio is tuned to frequencies that are most often used in the United States and North America. It can also be used in other parts of the world; however, LTE access may be limited or unsupported, depending on the network.

All-Day Battery and TurboPower Technology
The Moto G Plus is designed to last a full day and then some. With a 3000mAh battery, you can go about your day and not worry about battery life. Go to school or work, visit with friends, and then head out for the evening - you'll still have enough juice to get home. Plus, the Moto G Plus is equipped with TurboPower technology, which is designed to give you 6 hours of usage after just 15 minutes of charging.
Water Repellant
Advanced nano-coating technology creates a water repellent barrier to help protect against moderate exposure to water, such as accidental spills, splashes, or light rain.
Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow
The Android operating system integrates heavily with Google's services. Using the card-based Google Now, Android quickly surfaces information for you whenever you need it, powered by the same Knowledge Engine that runs Google's web search. It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 6.0 Marshmallow overhauls permissions, allowing you to have finer control over what your applications have access to. It also marks the debut of Now on Tap, a context-sensitive update to Google Now that checks your current screen for keywords and then searches for them automatically. Other performance and security enhancements are included as well.

Moto XT1644 reviews

Moto G Plus XT1644 4th Gen. 16GB Smartphone (Unlocked, Black) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 69.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great phone for travel and just as good as a Samsung Bought this phone for my dad as an upgrade from his Samsung Galaxy Mini. After having just gotten used to the Samsung, I was worried about switching to another brand, but since it still runs on an android operating system, the transition was pretty painless. He loves the bigger screen so that he can enjoy pictures of his new granddaughter and even video chat with her. Plus since it is unlocked he won't have any problems taking it with him on his next trip to Europe. Overall he's really happy with the phone and I was really happy with the price and quick delivery! Will definitely buy from B&H again. #sweepstakes

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Value - Issues w/activation Great value for a basic Android smartphone. Unless you are looking for the top of the line, every bell and whistle, super duper resolution camera, this is an excellent phone. Some difficulty activating it on Verizon as it was a new SIM I needed to use, but if that is your carrier, the secret to a smooth activation is first activating the new Verizon SIM on a "native" Verizon 4G LTE phone [that's why I recommend doing it in a Verizon store where they have ready access to one], although I used an old/unused Verizon phone to do it at home, and then move the SIM to the Moto G4 plus. Once that was done, the Moto G4 activated and worked no problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone at this Price Point I bought this phone to replace my Samsung Galaxy S4. I really, really, really liked my Galaxy but I couldn't justify spending $750 on a new phone, so I did some research and settled on the Moto G4. I have had the phone a few weeks and after some time to adjust and get used to it, I am really pleased with this phone. There a few little perks the Galaxy has, but in no way can I justify spending another $500.00. For this price point, I think this is a really great phone and I would buy it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic phone for the money! This phone has been fantastic, especially considering how inexpensive it is compared to the competition. No errors, no random shutdowns, no bugs, no lag, nothing. I usually can find a con in any product, but I honestly have no complaints. I'm shocked at how far these mid-range phones have come, and I'm very happy that they work on Verizon now in addition to the traditional GSM carriers. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'd recommend it as an all round phone The screen is great for an IPS, The microSD card support on the OS is great, It fully supports adoptable storage which makes it better than say, a 64GB or 32GB smartphone not supporting adoptable storage (Like Sony's and Samsung's) The fingerprint recognition is good. No complaints on the battery but after using it for a month, this is about what one would expect. It would be a 5 stars if It had these features - if sleep/wake and fingerprint were merged as a single button so I don't need to reach out to make it sleep - Led indicator for notifications so I wouldn't need to wake it to check for them. - Waterproof so I could use it under more conditions - NFC so I could connect with cameras quickly - Stereo speakers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone and camera. I waited for a sale specifically for this phone. Well worth it. Better blue tooth connections than my Lenovo A10 tablet to my Toshiba receiver. Great connected to my car as well. Only had to reboot the phone once in 3 months when the launcher went wankers. Camera performance is exceptional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go Moto! I bought the Moto G Plus for my husband who was cell resistant -- till now. I myself have the lesser (not by much) Moto G4 32 GB The phone is easy to learn/use and continues to amaze me with all it can do for the price. It's called a budget phone, but I don't think of it that way as it so versatile. I particularly like the battery life and the battery saver. That said, it charges up really fast. Included in the phone is a great Help library. I also joined the online Android Forum where other Moto G people can answer questions. I've had an Iphone, but I no longer want to pay their price...same for Samsung.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Phone, Great Price! Needed a new phone and after research, this is the one I wanted. Why anyone would buy from a source other than B & H is a mystery to me. They had the best price, free shipping and of course, their superb customer service! They do a great job of letting you know where you are in the shipping process. I have the phone and it's really nice and works well. Thanks B & H!!
