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...

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 Smartphone Review

 

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...

bright high-contrast display ; dual SIM and microSD expansion ; good dual camera ; attractive design ; reliable GPS ; good voice quality

glass back attracts dirt and is slippery ; low WLAN range ; only LTE Cat. 4

After just six month, Motorola offers its latest addition of the popular G series to the customers. With a new display, glass back, a dual camera, and the new Snapdragon 450, the jump turns out larger than that between the Moto G5 and the G5s earlier....

Motorola Moto G6, G6 Plus and G6 Play Review

 

We were very excited to get the new Motorola Moto G6, G6 Plus and Play models in the office. Freshly announced, they span the budget gamut of $200-$300, and there seems to be a model for everybody. Did Motorola manage to hit the sweet spot of specs,...

Value for money ; Long battery life from the G6 Play and Plus ; Good looks and craftsmanship ; Clean, fast stock Android ; Useful navigation and interface gestures ; Hot-swappable dual SIM card, AND a microSD slots

Average still image quality ; Display colors aren’t too natural ; The earpiece/speakers on the G6 and G6 Play sound tinny and hollow

Motorola’s Making the Cheap Smartphone Even Harder to Resist

 

Apple and Samsung would have you believe quality smartphones should cost the many hundreds of dollars you must sacrifice to obtain their rarefied devices. But in recent years, the march of time has made that notion obsolete. In 2012, a $200 device was...

It's cheap, quick enough for popular apps, and has a 1080p display.

Moto G6 Review: All the Phone You Need for $250

 

The Moto G6 is a great phone for almost anyone — whether that's a young person in your life or someone who doesn't care to shell out a whole lot on hardware. And we really mean anyone, because the G6's dual-band support allows Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile...

Comfortable to use ; Powerful audio ; Great software features ; Solid performance ; Works on all major networks

No NFC ; Underwhelming cameras

With solid power, great software and an inviting design, the Moto G6 is everything a budget phone should be.

Review: Motorola Moto G6

 

Motorola's G series phones have now reached their sixth generation. The Moto G6 sees Motorola taking the best design ideas from its mid-range X series and bringing them down to its more affordable G series. This Android phone combines good looks and...

Motorola has a near-hit on its hands with the Moto G6. Aside from one glaring issue, it's a good phone that holds its own against other sub-$300 devices.

Moto G6 Hands-On: Pretty Amazing for $250

 

The Moto G6 offers a vibrant 18:9 display, dual cameras and an elegant curved glass design for a lot less than you'd expect.
