Motorola Moto G6 review

A spending phone shouldn’t be this great

 

 

The Good / The Motorola Moto G6 has a close stock form of Android Oreo, great double back cameras, quick charging and a smooth outline. Also, it’s incredibly reasonable.

The Bad / The battery life isn’t insofar as a year ago’s Moto G5 or G5 Plus.

The Bottom Line / The Moto G6 is a great esteem, regardless of its negligible disadvantages.


How would you catch up a year ago’s magnificent spending plan amicable Moto G5 Plus? All things considered, you could begin with the outside. Include a second back camera for representation mode photographs. Exchange that Micro-USB port for a USB-C. Dispose of the 16:9 screen proportion and run tall with an in vogue 18:9 show that shows all the more vertically. Say bye to the metallic posterior and hi to a glass back with bended edges, particularly Gorilla Glass 3.

The general outcome would be a telephone that looks positively 2018, however with basically all that we cherished about a year ago’s Moto G5 Plus. Furthermore, that is precisely what the Moto G6 is.

A year ago’s Moto G5 Plus hit a sweet spot between highlights, plan, execution and cost. The Moto G6 hits the greater part of those, however just misses with a shorter battery life than a year ago’s Motos.

The Moto G6 looks smooth and present day. It has a prepared slicked-back hair vibe that influences it to appear anything other than moderate. Be that as it may, at $249, £219 or AU$399 it’s insane moderate contrasted with the $1,000 iPhone X.

Generally an indistinguishable size from the Moto G5 Plus, the Moto G6 has more slender bezels and a glass back that bends at the edge for an agreeable hold. Like about each telephone with a glass back, it gathers a bigger number of fingerprints than the stars of CSI.

Be that as it may, the Moto G6 isn’t the main moderate Motorola telephone to consider. In case you’re outside the US and your financial plan has some squirm room, the Moto G6 Plus merits a genuine look. In case you’re alright with a year ago’s styling, look at the Moto G5S Plus which is as yet being sold.

Moto G6, G6 Plus, G6 Play: What’s the distinction?

I tried the Moto G6 with 32GB of capacity, 3GB of RAM and no NFC . I bring this up on the grounds that there are three new G-arrangement telephones for 2018. To perplex things further, each model is changed a bit relying upon where you live.

  • Moto G6 Play: This is the most moderate of the three telephones. In the US, it costs $50 not as much as the Moto G6. The Moto G6 Play has a lower determination show and just a solitary back camera, however it additionally has the greatest battery of the three – a 4,000-mAh whopper more vast than the one found in the Galaxy S9.
  • Moto G6: Though it’s generally an indistinguishable size from the Moto G6 Play, the Moto G6 has a higher determination show, double back cameras and an all the more intense processor. In the UK and Australia, the Moto G6 accompanies NFC, and there’s a “progression up” UK variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of capacity.
  • Moto G6 Plus: Despite not being accessible in the US, the Moto G6 Plus is the most elevated end choice in the Moto G family. It has a 5.9-inch show rather than the 5.7-inch ones found on the G6 and G6 Play. Its battery is somewhat bigger than the one in the G6. The UK demonstrate has NFC and a discretionary 6GB of RAM.

Key highlights of the Moto G telephone family

Moto G6 has double back cameras and picture mode

The double back cameras take strong photographs, yet your shots wouldn’t be on an indistinguishable level from pictures shot on the Pixel 2, iPhone X or even the OnePlus 6. You’ll get the best outcomes when taking photographs under brilliant even light. The Moto G6 has a “functioning photographs” mode which, similar to Apple ‘s live photographs and Google ‘s movement photographs, records a modest measure of video when you take a photo.

Motorola included a group of fun modes to the camera one of which is representation mode. The Moto G6 takes functional representation mode shots. In spite of the foundation being obscured out, picture mode photographs don’t “fly” as much as they could. I like that the Moto G6 gives me a chance to change the concentration point and the measure of foundation obscure after I take a representation mode photograph. These little changes, as on the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, can transform a not as much as ideal picture into something entirely great.

Selfies are simply OK, however there is a forward looking blaze which can be convenient. There’s additionally a gathering selfie mode that prompts you to move the telephone left and after that right, similar to when you take a scene photograph. The telephone then “join” the selfie scene together. The outcomes are all in or all out. For instance, it “glitched” and multiplied the back of my companion’s influencing her hope to like an outsider wearing two sets of shades on her head – see the photograph above.


The Moto G6 utilizes computerized reasoning (AI) to recognize items, historic points and message and improve things in like manner. It can record video at 1080p. Be that as it may, there’s no 4K and no moderate movement mode. Furthermore, that is fine since I’m not purchasing this telephone to be the following Steven Spielberg. I’m getting it since it’s shoddy.

Here’s a video I recorded with the Moto G6:

Moto G6 battery life, speed and everything else

The G6 runs Android 8.0 Oreo and has Google Assistant and the Google Lens enlarged reality apparatus. Them two functioned admirably: I appreciated pointing the Moto G6’s camera at structures and tapping the Google Lens symbol to get more data about the things around me. It resembled I was without anyone else private design visit.

In any case, any telephone that costs two or three hundred dollars will have penances and the Moto G6 is the same. In speed tests, the Moto G6 was slower than the Moto G5 Plus, yet not by much. In true utilize, it took care of regular assignments, for example, informing, Instagram, viewing YouTube recordings and playing recreations well. I was even ready to play PUBG Mobile with the edge rate set at medium – it’s absurd that I did this on a telephone that expenses $250.

The Moto G6’s battery fared more awful than the Moto G5 and G5 Plus. Amid our circled video battery tests (in off-line mode), the Moto G6 kept going a normal of 9 hours, 41 minutes contrasted with the Moto G5, which endured 13 hours, and the Moto G5 Plus, which kept going 13 hours, 22 minutes. In spite of the fact that in true utilize, the Moto G6 had no issue overcoming the day on a solitary charge even after overwhelming use.

In spite of having a glass back, the Moto G6 doesn’t have remote charging. Be that as it may, to be reasonable, just a couple of super premium telephones bolster remote charging. It’s not uncommon for a spending telephone to discard it.


The Moto G6 can be charged quick by means of its “Turbopower” charger which appears to be more valuable than remote charging to me. The Moto G6 has a “sprinkle confirmation” covering yet isn’t IP evaluated for water obstruction – so don’t drop it in a latrine. In any case, in the event that you do, rest guaranteed that purchasing a substitution Moto G6 won’t break your bank.
