Moto G6 Plus Cons- 4 reasons for not to buy

Moto G6 Plus Cons- 4 reasons for not to buy

Uninspiring design

Moto G6 Plus sports 5.93-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Full-HD+ (1080×2160 pixel) resolution. However, the latest trend of thin bezels or display with a notch is missing. It has thicker bezels, especially in the top and bottom. The device has screen to body ratio of around 75%.  Overall there is nothing so special in this device when it comes to the design aspect.

‘outdated’ Qualcomm Snapdragon processor

Moto G6 Plus is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor. There are many smartphones such as Redmi Note 5 Pro, Nokia 6.1 Plus feature much more powerful and efficient Snapdragon 635 processors at a more competitive price. Xiaomi Poco F1  which comes with price tag of INR 21,000, features Snapdragon 845.

No Fast Android updates

Compared to Android One powered smartphones, Moto phones software updates are slow. There was a time when Motorola phones used to get Android updates faster. But nowadays, it is not the same.

Not a value for money device

Motorola is popular for providing the latest hardware at the competitive price.  However, Moto G6 Plus is disappointed in this segment. Price at INR 22,999, features it offers compared to the competition is very less.  Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Xiaomi Poco F1, Redmi Note 5 Pro etc provide much better features at the competitive price.

These are my raw opinion on the device. These Moto G6 Plus Cons are purely based on the specifications. I will be updating this post in the coming days once I complete the full review.
