Motorola recently welcomed a new series of smartphones into the budget mid-range scene with the G-series. The Moto G6, Moto G6 Play and Moto G6 Plus are the next in line after last year’s G5 series which was quite a success. Now it is better, attractive and faster with some noticeable improvement here and there. One of the obvious changes made is inclusion of an extra camera at the rear, 18:9 aspect ratio and a more attractive Corning Gorilla Glass build.

Design and Display

While the Moto G6 is an obvious upgrade in terms of aesthetics, the smartphone still retains a level of G-series look. This makes it much more unique compared to some of its competition out there. Sandwiched with glass on both sides like you have in premium smartphones with a metallic frame in the middle. It is also worthy of mention, that the Moto G6 is not waterproof but instead it has a P2i coating which is water repellent.

On to the next thing which is the fairly large display featured on the smartphone and happens to be a good one at that. Boasting of a Full HD+ resolution with a 5.7-inch size, you’re sure to enjoy crisp and detailed colour reproduction a mid-range smartphone can offer. Also, thanks to the 18:9 aspect ratio which accommodates bigger display due to its narrow nature rather than robust, thus, makes handling more difficult. It is also worthy of mention, that there is a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for protection against scratches.

With the new smartphone opting for a dual rear camera which is for more depth and better blurring-out of the background generally known as bokeh effect.

For selfies, the smartphone has a an 8MP camera along with a dedicated flash in case of low light.

However, on this one is a better Qualcomm SDM450 Snapdragon 450 with a maximum clockspeed of 1.8GHz and eight cores. Graphics munching is done by a capable Adreno 506 GPU which is also mid-range.
