Ring Video Doorbell 4 review: Best of the battery-powered bunch?

The new Ring Doorbell 4 is a step on from 2020's 3 Plus because the Pre-roll feature is now in color rather than just black and white. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Everything you need to get started is included (aside from a drill), including fixings and a backing plate which you attach to a wall. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
It's easy to tell the Ring where you want it to measure motion by defining areas - here we're removing the neighbouring driveway from motion alerts. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
Once again the battery is detachable - you can buy a replacement if you want to swap them out, but we found the battery lasted several weeks at least. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
There are so many options in the Ring app that it can be confusing to find things. It needs a reworking to make things more straightforward for new users. (image credit: Pocket-lint)
The Ring Video Doorbell 4 offers more than enough to justify opting for it over the entry-level Ring Video Doorbell (2nd gen). It's all about color Pre-roll! (image credit: Pocket-lint)
