The first Moto G released in late 2013 really helped to spark a trend. It demonstrated that remarkably affordable phones could have good enough specs and performance. Not everyone needs a flagship. The Moto G4 Plus, which is also being marketed more simply as the Moto G Plus, is and isn’t continuing that trend. Here in Canada, it’s going to sell for more than $400 outright through selected carriers. That’s quite a bit more than what we had expected from a Moto G in the past.

Set for launch through Rogers Wireless, Wind Mobile, SaskTel, Koodo, and Virgin Mobile starting next Wednesday, June 22, the Moto G4 Plus is a decidedly mid-range phone with a mid-range price. It’s not really a budget phone on a budget-oriented price anymore. I guess that’s the “Plus” part of it.

You get a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, microSD expansion, a 16MP rear camera and a 3000 mAh fast-charging battery. The Moto G4 Plus runs on Android 6.0.1 with Moto Pure. It’s got a fingerprint reader too, because that’s all the rage these days.

The Moto G Plus is a perfectly solid phone, but the outright price puts it almost into the same range as something like the new OnePlus 3. Wind will have it listed at $449 outright and Telus is reportedly selling it for $410 on no term. Contract and “tab” pricing is understandably much more attractive. Hop onto the a $15 WindTab plan and you can get it for $0. Sign a two-year contract with Telus and get it for $50. I imagine the other carriers will be mostly similar.
