You can't tell by looking that this phone is splash-proof.

That's a fingerprint reader, not a home button, which can get confusing.

It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow but will likely upgrade to Android Nougat after the software's release.

The approachable, plastic phone is costlier than the G4, but that price hike makes it a little less likable.

Stay tuned! CNET's full Moto G4 Plus review will be available later this week.
