Moto G6

 

Moto G6 review: The Moto G6 is Motorola's new budget smartphone champion. Read our first impressions and review of the Moto G6.

The perfect size ; Well built for the price ; Detailed FHD+ screen ; Fantastic software experience

Some performance frustrations, especially with the camera

Perhaps the biggest upgrade Motorola has packed into the G6, on paper at least, are its dual rear cameras.

Motorola Moto G6 review

 

We can forgive the Moto G6 of its little frustrations, because the overall package is such great value.

Fast-charging battery ; Capable dual-lens camera ; Competitive price ; Good display ; NFC for Google Pay

Short battery life ; Software disappoints ; Sluggish performance

The Moto G6 defines what a good value smartphone should be like by including all the features and design flourishes you want, without an off-putting price tag. Software isn’t its strong point, and the battery isn’t large enough; but it’s great for...

Motorola Moto G6 review

 

Motorola's latest smartphone gives you much more bang for your buck.

Good camera ; Modern operating system ; Surprisingly responsive ; Punchy picture

Sound could be more exciting ; Image needs refinement

A low-cost phone with better-than-budget performance

Moto G6, G6 Play, and G6 Plus review: I can’t believe budget phones are this good

 

If you're in the market for a phone under $300, you don't have to look much further.

Vibrant screen ; Comfortable design ; Bargain price

Slow camera ; Processor may age poorly ; Atrocious default wallpaper

The Moto G6 shouldn't be this good and still cost $249

 

Dual-rear cameras, a Gorilla Glass 3 body and a 1080p HD screen with an 18:9 ratio. Not too shabby for $250.

The Motorola Moto G6 has a near-stock version of Android Oreo, good dual-rear cameras, fast charging and a sleek design. And it's amazingly affordable.

The battery life is not as long as last year's Moto G5 or G5 Plus.

The Moto G6 is a sublime value, despite its minimal drawbacks.

Motorola Moto G6

 

The unlocked Motorola Moto G6 offers overall solid performance and surprisingly good camera capabilities for the price.

Sleek design. Solid specs. Good camera performance. Supports all major US carriers.

Below average battery life.

Unlocked phones are a dime a dozen these days, but it's hard to find ones that deliver quality camera performance for under $300. With a dual sensor setup inspired by the Moto X4, the Moto G6 delivers some of the best image quality we've seen in this...

Motorola Moto G6 review: a glass-backed budget beauty

 

Full featured and fantastically affordable, the Moto G6 punches well above its weight

Lush 3D glass design ; Crisp 18:9 IPS LCD Full HD display ; Feature-packed dual rear camera system ; Solid benchmark scores ; Fast fingerprint reader

Only 32GB of internal storage ; No IP67/68 water resistance rating ; Standard model not as well specced as Amazon exclusive

Motorola Moto G6 review

 

The G6 family's middle child might just be the smartest phone choice out there...

High-end design at a low price ; Good performance ; Fantastic value ; Solid camera ; Phew, it has a headphone jack

Camera needs to be a mite faster

Who needs a £700 phone when you can get a Moto G6 for a third of the price?

Motorola Moto G6 review: The affordable smartphone, reinvented

 

Feature packed, affordable and well designed. The Moto G6 represents the G series in new form, where it remains a step above its affordable

Premium looking design for an affordable device ; 18:9 aspect screen ratio is a fitting update ; MicroSD expandable (and dual SIM) ; Clean software with useful Moto app additions

Battery life could be improved ; Processor has natural limitations for more demanding apps ; Cameras could be snappier ; Confusing proposition of three handsets (Play and Plus)

Moto G6 review

 

One of the best budget phones, plus it has an 18:9 screen

Low price ; Premium design for the price ; Bright and clear display

Not waterproof ; Slow camera

The Moto G6 may not feel or run like a flagship phone, but it’s not pretending to be one. The G6 offers a lot of solid features, plus extras including some fun camera features, fast charging and it all adds up to make one of the best budget handsets on...
