Not everyone wants to get their hands on the latest and greatest tech flagship smart phone. Sometimes, simplicity is the best solution for your needs. The Motorola Moto G6 fits the bill for these scenarios, and offers excellent value for money with many great features. This model has a fantastic bright screen, decent battery life, and solid internal components.
Given the price range that this phone falls into, there are some things that are noticeably slower than usual. The camera takes a while to focus and snap optimal pictures, especially in low light or fast moving scenes. Additionally, this phone does not have a waterproof rating, so be sure to stay dry when you are carrying this model in your pocket.
Is it for you?
If you don’t have a desire to carry the latest and greatest smartphone gadgetry, but don’t want to sacrifice affordability for functionality, then this could be the phone for you. While by no means state of the art, the Motorola Moto G6 can still keep up with all of the basic features that most users need to get them through the day.
Meet the Moto G6
Sometimes we need feature filled phone that doesn’t break the bank. Premium finishes and state of the art technology is not necessarily the main goal with this unit, and the practical aesthetic tells you this straight off the bat. The main outer shell is constructed with a durable housing that is sure to last for the duration of this phone’s lifetime in your pocket while looking great.
What we like
The simplicity of this phone’s main design belies the inner workings of the platform. It contains a superb camera, capable of taking almost any photo that you would require in most normally lit conditions. It is only when the lighting starts to fade that you will start noticing artefacts due to the limitations of the camera sensor.
The performance of this unit is achievable due in large part thanks to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset, with an acceptable 3GB of RAM. Internal storage is handled by a 32GB capacity, with a 64GB model also available.
The battery packs 3,000mAh of power, more than enough for most users to get them through the day. Even better, there is a fast charge implementation that lets you recharge your phone at a rapid pace when you are in a hurry.
What we don’t like
The only real chink in the armour of this device is that lack of a wireless charging solution, which is becoming more common in phones that reside in this segment of the market. It feels like a missed opportunity, but this might not matter to the majority of users.
From a design point of view the camera housing feels a little out of place and juts out, which makes it a bit of a dust magnet over time.
Should you buy it?
For the average smart phone user this device really ticks all of the boxes. It has an attractive price point for starters, combined with a decent camera and really good battery. Anyone that needs a solid daily driver that runs the Android OS, has a totally usable camera, and a fast charge option will definitely enjoy this phone.
