Reviews for the Motorola Moto G6

83.9% Motorola Moto G6 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
G as in genius? The latest offshoot of the Motorola-G series is advertised self-confidently and presents itself as a successful advancement of the Moto G5s. A faster SoC, a dual camera, and an updated design are supposed to attract customers. You can find out about the qualities and weaknesses of the Moto smartphone in this test.
Moto G6 and Moto G6 Play review: The best cheap Android phones you can buy
Source: Android Authority English
You're not going to find a better, more premium-looking phone at this price than the Moto G6. No, the camera isn't great (and neither is Motorola's software update track record), but everything else is. The build is fantastic, the software is a joy to use, and it's compatible with all the major carriers in the States. It's the best smartphone you can buy for under $250, hands down.

It might not be waterproof, but a water repellent coating is better than nothing and the G6 looks and feels much more expensive than it really is. You get a decent 18:9 screen, fingerprint scanner, dual cameras and decent battery life to boot. 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage won't be enough for everyone but you can upgrade for just £20 with the Amazon model.

80% Moto G6, G6 Play, And G6 Plus Review: I Can’T Believe Budget Phones Are This Good
Source: The Verge English
The standard G6 really does strike the best balance here. And for $250, it’s hard to complain about the shortcomings it does have. If anything, it’s given me more reason to complain about the flaws on my $649 phone. As the quality gap between high- and low-end smartphones continues to shrink, the price between them seems to be growing bigger. For people who usually buy top-of-the-line phones, that’s bad news. But if you’re shopping under $300, Motorola makes it feel like there’s very little you’re missing out on.

It is a tough field. We have seen the Moto G series hold its own in the past, fighting mainly on the experience it delivered. This time, that does not seem to be an option, as there are definite alternatives, The Moto G6, however, seems to be fighting on another front – design. And there it is in a zone of one. The G in the latest Moto G definitely stands for glassy. How much users value it could well determine its fate.

The G-series is Moto’s best-selling line and it really isn’t hard to see why. Whereas the brand’s higher-tier devices don’t do enough to stand out against the competition from Apple, Samsung and others, the G6 really does offer a tempting package. Don’t come here expecting a device that completely rewrites your expectations of what a £220 phone can do, but do expect one that will perform the majority of tasks you’d carry out on a phone with ease.

Priced at Rs 13,999 for the 3GB RAM variant and Rs 15,999 for the 4GB RAM variant, the Moto G6 offers good design and build, a great pair of cameras, stock Android experience, and good performance. But when it comes to hardware to pricing ratio, Moto G6 definitely seems overpriced with Snapdragon 450 when we have most of the devices in the sub 15k price segment running on Snapdragon 6XX series. But having used the Moto G6 for quite some time, we can say that it provides a good overall experience if you are not really worried about the processor.

For the price Motorola is asking for, it seems to be a little on the higher side if compared to the Chinese rivals like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. However, considering the design, the build quality, and the major changes in the design aesthetics from its predecessor, the Moto G6 could be a worthy contender at least for the way it looks.

The Moto G6 is a good smartphone available at a decent price. But with competitors using better chipsets at the same price range, they might lose some sales from smartphone enthusiasts moving to different brands. Even still, the Snapdragon 450 isn’t bad at all. The RAM options are 3GB and 4GB. Simple users can pick up the 3GB RAM version while people who want to game on the phone can easily go for the 4GB version.

Moto G6 review: Premium design with decent performance
Source: India Today English
Moto G6 is clearly a big upgrade over the predecessor in terms of design and specifications. Apart from a contemporary design, Moto G6 also delivers a rather fluid user experience, giving it an edge over this rather monotonous category of phones. But things like the camera performance and a price tag of Rs 16,999 (for the top-end model) keeps it from being a perfect all-rounder.

Motorola Moto G6 is a well-made phone and without the doubt, one of the best-looking devices in the mid-end segment. It delivers on a number of promises made by the company – 18:9 aspect ratio display, design, dual cameras, and battery. However, it could have a beefier processor, something I’d like to point it out clearly in the review. Motorola Moto G6 competes with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Asus ZenFone Max Pro 1, and Nokia 6.1.

Moto G6 Review

Overall, the Moto G6 is a good upgrade to the last year’s Moto G5 offering an eye-catching design with good build quality, and dedicated SIM and microSD slots instead of hybrid slot. However, the camera is not impressive and the battery life it just average compared to other competitors in the price range. The company could have used Snapdragon 630 or even 625 SoC for a better performance.

Source: Talk Android English
Overall, I like the Moto G6 as much as last year’s G5 Plus. The modern touches, like an 18:9 screen, USB-Type C, dual-camera system and slicker design mostly make up for the occasional performance hiccups. If only Motorola threw in a Snapdragon 630 instead and didn’t ax NFC, we’d really have something special.

Moto G6 First Impressions: A premium phone at budget price?
Source: The Mobile Indian English
To conclude, the Moto G6 does come with a premium design and display looks interesting as well. However, the modest specifications surely looks like an underdog when compared to the rest of the competition. The camera is yet to prove its worth and so does the battery and user interface. As for the competition is concerned, the Moto G6 will face a stiff competition with the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Realme 1 and Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 that comes loaded with a pretty decent design and impressive hardware.

80% Moto G6 review: Good looks, decent performance
Source: Gadget Show English
The Moto G6 looks great and scores full marks on the design front. But overall, there is a mixed feeling about the Moto G6. The display quality is decent while the battery life is just average. On the performance front, Snapdragon 450 processor doesn’t excite much but the phone manages to be lag-free under stress. The dual-lens camera module has certainly improved. The device offers great images in good lighting conditions but low-lighting photography seems to be a weakness. Having said that the device scores big on the software front. The promise of regular software updates is also an added bonus. So, if you are looking for a good-looking smartphone with decent performance, then the all-new Moto G6 can be a good choice for you. Else, there are competitors like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, Samsung Galaxy J6 (2018), Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 and the Honor 9 Lite.

The all-glass design of the Moto G6 is stunning to look at and is perhaps the best-looking phone in the segment by miles.

For everything else, the Redmi Note 5 Pro makes a lot more sense.

Surprisingly, the Moto G6 Play is no major downgrade as well. Despite a different bill of materials, Motorola managed to preserve the styling mostly intact, in no small part, thanks to a 5.7-inch, Max View display, on the cheap. Plus, the Play manages to bring a treat of its own to the table, namely a large 4,000 mAh battery pack. Also, an on-screen navigation setup, with a fingerprint reader around back - a throwback to Moto G phones of yore.

Comment

Model: Motorola has a long story when it comes to making cell phones. Here we are, having the next iteration of G series. G series to some extent represent the budget line and just like last years G5, G6 is no different.

Moto G6 comes in 3 different flavors. Cheaper Moto G6 Play, Moto G6 for midrange and somewhat premium Moto G6 Plus.

I will be playing with G6 today. How does it feel? It has a glass body, can be held with just one hand, anything else? Nope. Oh, maybe 3.5 jack for stereo output, that’s something to mention about.

As I mentioned, the G series represents budget phones for Motorola. With a price tag around 249 dollars, the G6 is the real example of it. Since the price tag is this low, I can find hardly anything to criticize. Sure thing, we need to get something when a price is paid. But look, you get a quality case, 12 MP + 5 MP dual rear cameras (G5 used to have 13MP), almost 2-day battery life, if you just use it for phone calls of course. The camera is just average, yes just average nothing more.

The Snapdragon 450 processor and 3 to 4 GB (depending on region) of RAM is provided with the device. It is adequate for day to day usage. Meaning, don't expect to play very high demanding games. But if you are someone using your smartphone just lets say for business, it will be more than enough.

One big advantage of the Moto G6 is that it comes with stock Android, no bloatware, no headaches. To keep the price down, the not so essential water and dust resistance is gone. If you ask me, it is not a big deal, for the past 15 years of my cell-phone usage, there was only one occasion that my phone was water damaged and it is really an exceptional situation. So yeah, no need to pay for IP67 or IP68 certifications.

When it comes to budget phones, my answer to “Would I buy it?” becomes a bit hard to answer. For starters, almost all budget phones look similar, whether it is the outlook or internals. Secondly, the competition is very strong. Xiaomi is a big player in this segment and it can be cheaper most of the time and there are other Chinese brands like Honor from Huawei. I would buy this smartphone, just because it has stock Android compared to other manufacturers. Other than that, I think it is no different from the competition. No premium features, nothing special to spend more than a few minutes for deciding.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.
81.41%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
