I’ve always been a big fan of We Vibe toys and the We Vibe 4 Plus is just incredible with what it can do so it’s about time I wrote a quick review all about it.
Imagine you and your partner are sat in a restaurant together and you’re wearing the We Vibe 4 Plus. Your partner opens the phone app, and suddenly switches the toy on… He can slide the intensity bars up and down to alter the vibration speeds you feel and control each individual motor….
He can choose to really tease you and drive you crazy and nobody else is any the wiser. It doesn’t matter how far apart you are in the world. The app still works.
What’s in the box?
The packaging is beautiful and sleek. When you receive it you know from the box you’ve received a high quality toy. Included with your We-Vibe 4 Plus is a full set of instructions, a cradle charging dock which also doubles up as a storage case, and a USB charging cable.
What does it look and feel like?
The We Vibe 4 Plus feels lovely and soft to touch, and you can tell that it’s made from good quality silicone. It is flexible, and the more you use it, the more flexible and comfortable it gets.
One reviewer on the Lovehoney site said she actually wore hers around the house to break it in more. Why not hey!
It has an insertable length of 2.5 inches. I love that it’s completely water-proof, although the remote isn’t and of course, neither is your mobile phone.
There are extra ridges on the G-spot side of the toy that add extra stimulation internally whilst the toy is vibrating.
How is it powered?
As mentioned above, you get a USB charging cable with the toy, so all you have to do is plug it into a USB port on your computer or with your phone charger. I am a big fan of rechargeable toys and they’re so much more convenient than battery powered ones.
Rechargeable toys usually come with a higher price tag though compared to battery operated ones. In the end, what you save in batteries, you spend extra on the rechargeable toy so it really all balances out but with more convenience.
The We Vibe 4 comes with a cradle charging dock that is discreet and means you can charge it up without anyone actually knowing what’s inside. The toy sits in the dock and charges through it so you don’t need to plug the toy in, just sit it on the egg.
It’s all self explanatory when you get yours.
When you receive your own We Vibe 4 Plus you will need to charge it up for 6 hours before you can use it. I love that there is a little LED on the front of the dock that flashes whilst it’s charging, and when it’s fully charged, the flashing stops.
What do you actually do with the We Vibe 4 Plus?
I know, I know, a lot of you reading this will be like I first once and wondering, err, what do you actually do with it? How on earth can a couple use this during sex?
The We Vibe 4 plus is designed specifically as a couples toy.
One side of the toy inserts into you, and it curls to hit your G-Spot, whilst the other end curls and hits your clitoris.
Now at the same time as this, your partner will also insert himself into you and feel the vibrations as well.
Fans of the We Vibe 3 will notice that the We Vibe 4 Plus is actually a lot smaller, possibly up to a third smaller. This makes it more comfortable and easier to wear whilst having sex.
The smooth silicone makes it feel nice and easy to have sex with and there isn’t a problem with friction, especially if you use plenty of water-based lube. Have a read of some of the other reviews on the Lovehoney site where there are loads to read to give you an idea of what they’re saying too.

What are the functions?
It has 6 functions and 10 intensity settings to choose from.
There are two individual motors, one on either side of the toy which you can control individually, or as one.
One of the motors is on the G-spot stimulator and works internally, whilst the other is for the clitoris and works externally. See in the diagram above how the toy looks in use during sex. Both you and your partner benefit from the vibrations.
How it is controlled?
It can be controlled either directly on the toy itself using a single controller button, by the wireless remote or the innovative smart phone app. The app can be controlled by you or your partner, no matter how far apart you are.
To use the button on the We Vibe 4 Plus, you just press and hold the button to switch it on and off, then keep pressing it once to move through the functions.
To use the remote control just press and hold the up button to switch it on. The up and down buttons then control the intensity and the side buttons control the functions which you can move through to find one that you like. To switch it off, this time hold down the bottom button.
Using the app
The app will work for the We Vibe 4 Plus no matter where you are.
Make sure the blue tooth on your mobile phone is on or the app won’t be able to connect to the toy. When you’ve downloaded the app, press the play button on the app, and it will look for the We Vibe 4 Plus. When it’s found it, the toy buzzes three times into life.
You can even switch the toy on with the app by just pressing play within the app.
The toy has two separate controls for each motor, if you decide to control them separately. You can do this by pressing the link button and you will unlink the motors and control them individually.
There is even a button for ‘unexpected pleasure’ which is cool. For this you press the random button, and you will get any vibration pattern that the app chooses.
If you want to choose your own vibration pattern, you just have to swipe the screen until you find a setting that you love and each pattern has it’s own visual representation.
How does it feel?
Before you use the We Vibe 4 Plus, make sure you have some good water-based lube ready, as this helps you get the toy in place without any sort of discomfort.
The vibrations feel really good and strong. It is built for couples to use, but you can also use this entirely as a solo toy and it is still a powerful toy for using completely alone.
How loud is it?
The We Vibe 4 Plus is really a discreet and quiet toy, and I’m not surprised at that with how well built it is and it’s price. To watch it in action and get an idea of how loud it is, I recommend you watch the review video by Lisa who demonstrates it in action. The vibration sounds are obviously quiet compared to a lot of other vibrators out there and video reviews I have seen.
What’s the difference between the We-Vibe 4 and We-Vibe 4 Plus?
The We Vibe 4 Plus combines all the previous feature of the We-Vibe 4 but with remote technology, the phone app. The app can easily be downloaded to your phone from the app store on either Apple IOS or Android.
Is it worth buying?
Okay this is a fairly expensive toy but you do get a lot from it! It’s received so far 46 positive reviews on the Lovehoney website. Have a read of them all here for lots more opinions.
This toy has clearly been very well thought out and the app that goes with it is a very smart element, especially the way it’s controlled, is completely hands free and feels very intimate.
Pros of the We Vibe 4 Plus
Where to begin with the pros?
It’s fully waterproof.
You have the cool app and remote features that you can use to tease and engage sexually with each other when far apart.
You can also use it during sex when you’re back together.
It’s packed with speeds and functions.
It’s rechargeable via USB.
It’s very well designed and simple to use.
It’s so comfortable during sex and will definitely give you both a good time and really enhances your sex life.
The only real con for me was it’s price, which won’t be for everyone, but it really is an investment in your sex life.
I’m struggling for other cons so I will say that you also need to charge it up before it can be used for 6 hours which means there is a delay before you can first use it!
Choose from grey, pink or purple.
