Moto G6 Play review

 

The Moto G6 Play looks far better than its low price tag, and it can last nearly two days.

Beautiful design ; More durable than other glass-body G6 phones ; Great battery life ; Simple, bloat-free software

Camera performs poor in low light ; Somewhat sluggish performance ; Screen isn’t too sharp

The Moto G6 Play doesn’t look like a budget phone and can last two days, but everything else about it is average.

Motorola Moto G6 Play

 

The Motorola Moto G6 Play is a more affordable take on the standard G6 that trades some power for battery life, striking an ideal balance of price and performance.

Affordable. Support for all major US carriers. Solid specs and overall performance. Long battery life.

Average camera. Still uses micro USB.

The Moto G6 Play is the most widely available phone in Motorola's lineup. At $200 (or less, depending on the model), it strikes a good balance between price and performance, with excellent battery life that can keep it going all day. If you're looking...

Moto G6 Play hands-on: a strong competitor

 

Since the launch of the Moto G4 series in 2016, Motorola hasn't released any Play versions of its phones, like the Moto G4 Play and the Moto X Play . These devices have become known among users for delivering a longer battery life and good performance...

Moto G6 Play

 

Review of the baby of Motorola's latest G-series handsets. Read our in=depth full review of this excellent entry to the Moto G family

Great price ; Smart looks ; Excellent value ; Strong battery life

Camera could be faster

The Moto G6 Play camera performs similarly to other devices in the series since the Moto G3. In daylight you can achieve great shots with much better dynamic range than you might expect from a budget phone.

Motorola Moto G6 Play review

 

The best sub-£200 phone right now? You betcha

Excellent battery life ; Large, 18:9 screen ; Stylish build for the price

Camera is average ; No waterproofing

A cracking smartphone that we’d happily pay twice as much for

Moto G6 Play review

 

A phone you'll want to play with

Good battery life ; Surprisingly good screen ; Great value

Camera a touch slow ; Mediocre night photos ; Scrolling software bug

The Moto G6 Play is the most basic model in the G6 range but still has plenty going for it, including a long-lasting battery and a decent screen. If you're on a tight budget it's easy to recommend.

Motorola Moto G6 Play review: A winner from Motorola, now cheaper

 

An impressive display, good battery life and decent camera – the Moto G6 Play is another great budget phone from Motorola

Great battery life ; Runs near stock Android ; Big, bright 5.7in display

No Full HD display ; Lacks water- and dust-resistance

Only the camera, which isn’t quite as good as the one on the Moto G5S, might give you pause. Other than this, though, if you’re on a strict £180 budget, the Moto G6 Play is the best phone you can buy right now.

Moto G6 Play review: Cheap but charming

 

More like the Moto G5.5, the G6 Play is still an appealing package

I was a bit sceptical of the Moto G6 Play going into this review. You’re looking at a processor which was budget-friendly two years ago in a package only £50 cheaper than the excellent Moto G6. That didn’t seem a big enough price drop to make it worth...
