Initial availability differences of Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 Play
Although 3 models of Moto G4 were announced, only 2 of them are currently available.
Moto G4 Play will be only available later this summer.
Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 are currently available in selected countries and regions, mainly India, Brazil, Mexico and a few other countries in Latin America.
In early June, Moto G4 will be available in Europe, the Middle East, and other Asian regions.
Moto G4 Plus will be available in Europe, the Middle East, other Asian regions, and other Latin American regions from the second half of June.
For US and North America, the availability of Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 Play has not been announced. (Motorola is not a US company any more; it is now a Lenovo company.)
So, many Motorola fans in US, Europe and other regions are a bit disappointed. Apparently, Motorola (Lenovo) is too short-sighted in Moto G4 release.
Will this help the success of Moto G4?
Very unlikely. The availability strategy of Moto G4 is probably a disaster for Moto G4 sales.
With 3 different models (G4, G4 Plus, and G4 Play) combined, Moto G4 probably cannot exceed the sales of Moto G3 (2015) or Moto G2 (Moto G 2014).
Just may 2 cents.
Screen (display) differences of Moto G4, Moto G4 Plus and Moto G4 Play
Both Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus share similar display: 5.5″ 1080p (full HD. 1980*1080) display.
Moto G4 Play is smaller (5″) with a 720p (1280*720) screen.
So, the size of Moto G4 Play is similar to previous generations of Moto G devices (e.g., Moto G 2015 and Moto G 2014). Moto G4 and G4 Plus are bigger than previous generations.
