Moto G6 Review- Pros and Cons

Before starting of pros and cons, let’s have a quick look into the specifications of Moto G6.

  • Snapdragon 450 SoC(Octa Core) with Adreno 506 GPU.
  • 5.7 inch full HD+ IPS panel with 18:9 aspect ratio.
  • 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage or 4GB of RAM with 64GB of internal storage.
  • Dual nano sim card support with dedicated microSD card slot.
  • Rear dual camera 12MP+5MP.
  • 16MP front facing camera.
  • 3000 mAh battery with fast charging.

Moto G6 Pros

Here is the list of features which we liked on Moto G6.

  • Good look and feel: Gone are the days when the budget phones had a shabby design. Moto G6 sports a premium design which gives the impression of a phone which priced double of this.
  • Near Stock version of Android Oreo: Like the previous iteration of Moto G, this device too comes with near stock version of Android with few useful software add-ons. This includes Moto Actions, Moto Key which allows entering the password using the fingerprint scanner, Motorola’s One-Button Nav gesture in fingerprint scanner etc.
  • Decent Display screen: Moto G6 screen provides good viewing angles and accurate colors. However, max brightness and sunlight legibility are mediocre.
  • Dedicated microSD card slot: Along with dual sim card slot, it does provide dedicated microSD card slot.
  • Good battery life with fast charging: The 3000 mAh battery performance is impressive. It easily lasts more than a day with juice left for more. The inclusion of fast charging is a bonus.

Moto G6 cons

  • Average performance: Snapdragon 450 processor with clean near stock android does provide optimal performance. However, the phone does struggle while handling the intensive workloads. Also, we noticed some lag while playing heavy games like Asphalt 8.
  • Slow and inaccurate facial recognition: The face recognition on the Moto G6 is not accurate. It fails to recognize our face many of the times.
  •  Average Camera performance: Dual camera setup in the back, as well as front-facing camera, does take decent photos and videos in the well-lit conditions. However, in indoor and low light conditions, it struggles a bit.

Moto G6 Review summary: It is a decent smartphone with an attractive price tag. Considering the competition, we felt it could have been better if it had a better processor and camera setup.
