The e6s redefines how good £100 phones can be, with solid performance, decent battery life and a design that could easily pass for a handset twice the price. Inevitable compromises come in the form of a hit-and-miss camera and lack of USB-C, but it’s easy to look beyond these when you see everything you get for your money.

Motorola Moto is a range of Android mobile devices manufactured by Motorola Mobility, a subsidiary of Lenovo. Motorola’s smartphones run the gamut of lower-end price points but still carry impressive features that may convince buyers to pick one up. The Moto E series primarily focuses on entry-level smartphones, while the Moto G series focuses on mid-range phones. The Moto E range offers big display sizes with an 18:9 aspect ratio, making them a range of good-looking phones that cover all the basics at a reasonable price. It is definitely a good choice for those on a budget. The latest to join this series is the Moto E6S.
The Motorola Moto E6S comes in two color variants: Cranberry Red and Mirror Grey. While the former sports a gradient look, the latter offers a simple mirror finish. In comparison to the gradient look, the Mirror Grey glossy plastic finishing tends to easily pick up smudges and fingerprints, which become rather difficult to be cleaned. The smartphone has a 6.1-inch HD+ display. The fairly vivid colors and adequate brightness produced by the LCD screen definitely improve the overall viewing experience. The Moto E6S has been equipped with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, which is definitely something to be noted, as no other phone in its class offers that. For instance, the Realmi 3i offers only 3 GB of RAM with 32 GB of storage in the same price range.
As far as the performance is concerned, the Moto E6S comes with a Mediatek Helio P22 chipset with an octa-core processor and stock Android. This allows smooth swapping between apps, making calls and also while watching videos. However, when it comes to gaming, it definitely takes a while to load most games. Still, the phone manages to deliver an overall satisfying performance. In terms of its battery, the phone comes with a standard 3,000mAh battery that, under regular usage, can last for an entire day. There is also 10W fast-charging, which takes almost 2.5 hours to fully recharge the battery from zero.
When it comes to the camera setup, the Moto E6S has been equipped with a dual-camera setup at the back that includes a 13-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel secondary depth camera. On the front, there is an 8-megapixel sensor selfie camera. The phone also uses AI for post-processing images. The rear camera was found to perform decently well in daylight situations; images look colorful and there are enough details to satisfy any photo enthusiast out there. However, the camera starts losing sharpness as the light level starts to drop. While it is definitely not the best out there, it still performs decently for an entry-level phone.

74.93%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
