Phones of this caliber usually don’t have much in the way of storage. However, the Moto G4 Play comes with 16GB of internal capacity with expansion via microSD support (up to 256 GB).

Moto G4 Play having an average quality camera captures good quality images. It is equipped with a 8-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.2 aperture lens and LED flash – while a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
