Moto G6 Review
The Moto G6 may not feel like a flagship phone in the hand, but it has all the features that a flagship phone should have. These features and neat upgrades that the Moto G6 has makes the phone one of the best budget handsets in the market right now. And this Moto G6 review will tell you why.
The Moto G6 sports a bright and clear 18:9 display ratio. Though this is not the first phone to do this at this price range, it is the first time that this feature has come to the Moto G, and that is more than enough to have us excited. The screen is at 5.7 inches and is also Full HD+ resolution. Also, the bezel-less display does not spell only good looks for the front of the phone, but also it means that there is a lot packed into the small body. The screen is bright and also sports some strong viewing angles. The stretched out aspect ratio also makes us feel that the G6 is definitely an upgrade to the older generations of the Moto G6.
Processor and Memory
The Moto G6 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor and is coupled up with an octa-core 1.8 GHz CPU. Also supported by an Adreno 506 GPU, the Moto G6 is a fast phone that can multitask multiple apps like a breeze. When coming to memory, there are two variants. One is a 64GB internal storage one with 4GB RAM while the other one is of 32GB internal storage with 3GB RAM. These specifications assure that the Moto G6 will not hang or slow down even amidst heavy use. And with an internal storage of 64GB and an expandable 256GB, one cannot run out of space.
Now that we have covered the front, let’s head to the back, where there is some huge change. The back of the phone is made with 3D glass, and so the phone looks shiny and premium although it catches a lot of fingerprints easily. The back glass screen also looks incredibly awesome in the black version of the Moto G6. The rear edges of the phone are curved, and thus that allows the phone to sit comfortably in the palm.
This is a design improvement from the Moto E series. There is also an aluminum frame around the edges too. And about waterproofing, the phone isn’t certified to be waterproof, but Motorola has assured that it can take a few splashes. There is a fingerprint sensor on the back of the front of the phone as always, but this time the sensor is quite thin and does not take up a lot of space. But does it work well? Yes, yes it does.
The Moto G6 is powered by a 3000mAh battery with fast charging. The battery is strong enough to last the phone a full day from a single charge, and that too with heavy usage. But, if you feel that you are someone who doesn’t use the phone much but still wants a good battery, then the phone is for you because the phone would last you two good days with a light use.
The fast charging is real too. The phone is juiced up real quick and ready to take on the day. In official words, you can get the phone to run for hours with only half an hour’s charge.
The phone features a dual 12MP+5MP camera on the rear, with an 8MP front-facing shooter. The dual camera is used well as the 12MP camera takes on the job for primary photographs, while the secondary 5MP camera is used for depth sensing for Portrait mode. Though this dual camera setup isn’t the most powerful out there, it gets the work done and quick. The 12Mp sensor has an aperture of f/1.8, while the 5MP secondary sensor is f/2.2. The portrait mode enables one to focus on a foreground subject and apply three different basic effects to one’s photos. The phone also has some tricks up its sleeve with a ‘colour pop’ effect, that colors only the subject of the photograph.
The Moto G6 is priced at 13,999, and is available in the official Motorola store and also on Amazon. Amazon is the official selling partner of this years Motorola phones.
