    Wow, how IMO a .2" larger screen shouldn't count as a + option.

    For this phone the + isn't so much about the extra screen size. The plus model has more RAM, bigger battery and a different CPU. If this thing is even slightly better than the G4+ it's a steal at $229.

    Why Motorola ditched the M dimple on their phones is beyond me. Their design language was so different, it's a shame they didn't continue with it, and moved the fingerprint reader to the dimple. Moto X and Nexus 6, shall live on with me.:)

    fingerprint reader on the front is much more useful on the front then on the back.

    When I put my hand in the pocket where my phone is the dimple is instinctual. My index finger goes straight there to balance the phone in my hand. A fingerprint reader in the front means that I have to reposition my hand to hit the reader.

    In my example, the fingerprint reader would do well to be placed in the dimple.

    The G4 Plus is the first phone my daughter has owned that she has not complained about and asked for an iPhone instead. Great phones for the price.
