The Moto Z4 is a pretty bland-looking phone. It comes in dark gray or white.
The Z4 packs a 6.4-inch OLED display which has a built-in fingerprint reader under the screen.
In use, the fingerprint reader failed on many first attempts to unlock. But machine learning is supposed to reduce the number of failed attempts over time while also increasing the speed.

There's a 48-megapixel rear camera similar to the camera found on the OnePlus 7 Pro.
On the front of the Moto Z4 is a 25-megapixel selfie camera nestled in a small dewdrop-shaped notch.

The Moto Z4 use mods to add features such as wireless charging, a second battery or a larger speaker.
You can use any Moto Mods with the Moto Z4 even $349 one that turns it into a 5G Verizon phone.
