Motorola launches its new budget smartphone Moto G6 along with two others Moto G6 Plus and Moto G6 Play. The Moto G6 companies new budget smartphone launched with the pretty advanced features in $249 dollars budget. With this cost, you can get pretty much bundle of specs, a clear 5.7-inch Full HD+ display with narrow bezels and a Snapdragon 450 CPU, facial recognition and fingerprint unlocking, dual rear cameras, USB-C fast charging support and full glass and metal design back. These all flagship features packs with a fraction of the cost.
The company’s goal with the Moto G-Series products is to bring those features commonly used in high-end mobile phones to cheaper phones. It will never be like buying a real high-end mobile phone, but it does allow you to taste high-end features without spending a lot of money.
Motorola’s G-Series has continued to grow and develop new affordable smartphones. Moto G6 is located in the middle of a series of three new Motorola smartphones. This is an impressive product that offers tremendous value for money and taking into the account of the best budget smartphone of 2108, this sets a new standard for affordable smartphones.
The company’s goal with the Moto G-Series products is to bring those features commonly used in high-end mobile phones to cheaper phones. It will never be the same as real high-end phones, but it does taste high-end features without spending a lot of money.
Motorola has brought the 18:9 aspect ratio of the Moto G6 same as other predecessors, Samsung and Huawei, but Motorolla gives premium features with an affordable cell phone.
Moto G6 design,
The Moto G6 has a screen ratio of 18:9, which means that the screen is taller and narrower than before. This is great for watching movies or TV shows, and it makes sense from a design point of view. Widescreen phones are much more good looking than the phones with big bezels. Moto G6’s display is much narrower than the previous gen, and the screen is larger than G6 Play. It is also much thinner, making it easier to slide into your pocket.
The Moto G6 is equipped with a 5.7-inch IPS LCD display, Full HD resolution, 1080 x 2160. This is 424 pixels per inch, similar to the quality we see on the Moto G5, despite the different sizes. Due to the higher screen size, you can get full HD resolution, which is slightly higher than a full HD phone. It doesn’t look as amazing as the display on a high-end phone, but it looks great considering the price of the phone.
The new aspect ratio is not only good for the appearance of the phone, which means more screens are packed in smaller bodies; this is the best size for the overall size of the phone (G6 is easier to hold than the Moto G6 Plus), And the screen brightness is high, the viewing angle is also very strong.
The quality of the materials that Motorola is using also feels like a big step forward. The Moto G6 has a sleek metal frame clamp on the side of the screen, a curved, scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass on the other side. Moto G6 is made of 3D glass, so the back looks glamorous, although it is easy to pick up the fingerprint. Despite this, this is still a problem with glass-supported mobile phones, and it takes only a little time to eliminate backtraces.
Ergonomics is specifically designed with the metal frame and tapered back, the G6 feels strong and comfortable. Cameras position on the back is, accented by an etched circle and overlaid on the glass. This really looks beautiful.
At the bottom of the phone, you will find a USB-C along with a 3.5 mm headphone jack, so you can use a wired headset with this phone. The speaker on the Moto G6 has moved from the bottom edge to the front, which is a good move because it is difficult to eliminate. It now also comes with Dolby audio.
Moto G6 features and performance,
The Moto G6 is equipped with 3GB and 4GB of memory (some regions have 6GB of RAM version) and Qualcomm’s latest mid-range processor Snapdragon 450. This is an upgraded version of the Snapdragon 430 processor last year, which you can find in the G5, and the cheaper Moto G6 Play.
In addition to packaging faster cores, Snapdragon 450 also uses 14-nm transistors, which is only half the size of 430. The storage of Moto G6 is with 64GB onboard space with additional SD card option. The mid range CPU makes the battery more efficient with fewer processors, which means longer battery life.
The most powerful is the Moto G6 Plus, which is equipped with the mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset, and we have seen this chipset perform well in phones such as the Sony Xperia XA2. The Moto G6 has a built-in Snapdragon 450 chipset, which is the same technology that was newly released inside the Honor 7C. This will not be as fast as in the Moto G6 Plus variant, but it will still be able to maintain.
The Moto G6 experience of Android 8.0 is very smooth, and the application opens soon. For example, launching a camera application and snapping it quickly is a kind of hysteresis-free experience.
Motorola has indeed wrapped a lot in the Moto G6. In addition to a clear 5.7-inch screen and dual cameras, the phone’s storage capacity has increased from 16GB last year to serve 64GB option, thanks to a microSD card slot extension, external storage up to 256 GB.

Moto G6 camera,
Motorola’s largest upgrade to the G6 and G6 Plus is a dual rear camera. In the past few years, we have seen many dual cameras on high-end devices, and these cameras work in various ways. Huawei P20 has a monochrome sensor to support the main sensor, and LG G6 chose a wide-angle second camera to accommodate more.
The Moto G6 method is more like the iPhone 8 and iPhone X methods. The second sensor helps you create a soft, shallow depth of field that keeps the subject in focus while it is soft.
I was testing a pre-production model without the final camera software, but I took some test shots and the effect was very good – crisp at the edges of the subject and blurred in the background. You can also adjust these effects in post-production through the Portrait Editor application.
The main rear sensor is 12 million pixels, which was actually 13 million pixels last year’s G5. However, don’t let this fool you. Megapixels are not everything, and this camera comes with a wider f/1.8 aperture, which should mean better photos in low light. I was unable to test this feature while I was using the phone, so please wait for the full review to see how Moto G6 performs in photography.
Dual camera settings also allow some beautiful features. Landmark recognition is one of them. As long as G6 is aimed at a famous place, it will pop up information about it. Object recognition is similar, but it applies to any object. Motorola claims that the camera on the Moto G6 is also very good at scanning and converting images to text.
It is worth noting that the Moto G6 Plus is equipped with a good rear camera on the paper. It is equipped with a more advanced image signal processor, a wider f/1.7 aperture, and dual-AF pixel technology. It can also shoot 4K video. The Moto G6 can reach up to 1080p (60fps).
The front camera is now 8 megapixels and comes with LED flash and landscaping mode – this is what I need most of the morning. It also lets you use facial recognition to unlock your phone, just like iPhone X. We haven’t seen whether it is smooth or how it works in the dark.
Moto G6 battery life,
The battery life of the Moto G series has always been acceptable, but not surprising, which is very similar to the situation with the Moto G6. The new Moto G6 Play and Moto E5 Plus target long-life batteries for 4000mAh and 5200mAh batteries respectively, while the Moto G6 has only 3000mAh batteries.
Unlike other Motorola phones, this will never last more than a day you will need to recharge overnight. It still offers a full charge and mixed-use throughout the day. It did pass around 6 pm, but if the average usage, you will find it will continue until you sleep.
If you want to use a relatively small number of mobile phones, you will find that the Moto G6 battery is in good condition, and if you use it often more than this number, you will find it performs well.
With the USB-C cable at the bottom of the phone, Motorola’s turbo power charging function is very simple. This means that if you use the official charging tile, you only need about half an hour to use your phone for a few hours.
