Motorola Moto G6 Review

If you are looking for a smartphone that you can use comfortably in your everyday life, Motorola moto g6 corresponds to this profile. The model is available at an affordable price and is equipped with an NFC chip.


The body of the Motorola moto g6 is made entirely of plastic. It also attracts the eye with its delicate gloss. This solution was relevant for 2018 and has become a favorite of many consumers. Characteristic of the coating is that in everyday use you will leave fingerprints on it. Therefore, we recommend that you put the Motorola moto g6 in a case. In this way you will solve the problem of slipperiness. If you are one of the users who easily drop their smartphone, this model must have a case. That's why Motorola comes with a Motorola moto g6 silicone case.

In general, visually the smartphone looks thin and lies nicely in the palm. The cameras are located in a separate block, which noticeably extends above the body. This is a plus, because feeling the body, you can guess where the lenses are.


Motorola moto g6 impresses with its quality 5.7-inch screen. An IPS matrix is ​​used, which enjoys pleasant colors, adequate contrast and good resolution. The pixel density is above average - 424 per inch.

In addition, the display is covered with protective glass Gorilla Glass 3 with oleophobic coating. This way you can leave no fingerprints, grease or other dirt on the surface of the glass. It just doesn't linger.

Below the screen of the Motorola moto g6 is positioned the fingerprint scanner. It performs only one function - to quickly unlock the device. It is not possible to give it other functionality. To do this, use the front keys.


It should be noted that under the beautiful body of Motorola moto g6 lies a Snapdragon 450 processor. It is not the fastest chipset in the world. However, he will be able to complete 90% of the daily tasks. Sometimes the system will be slowed down if you use too many programs or heavier games. It is recommended that you set the graphics parameters to a medium level if you are going to play on the phone.

In Motorola moto g6 we also see an Adreno 506 graphics processor, 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage, respectively. For the convenience of the user, a memory card up to 256 GB is provided. In this way you solve the problem of memory deficit, if it occurs at any time.


The smartphone offers good photos for the price. You can get good white balance and frame detail. Be sure to try the capabilities with HDR mode. With it, your photos will become a little better - details hidden in the shadows will appear.

Night photos with Motorola moto g6 will not always delight you. They will often lack autofocus. Therefore, we recommend that you work more with the modes available in the camera application.

A dual camera is responsible for portrait photos. In general, the background blurs well enough, but sometimes the algorithm makes mistakes. The main module is 12-megapixel, and the additional - 5-megapixel. The selfie camera is single and has an LED flash.

With the Motorola moto g6 in hand, you can record FullHD videos at 60 frames per second. They are of good quality, including sound pleasing.

Autonomous work

Motorola moto g6 can provide you with battery life a little over the clock. If you use the device more economically, reaching for the charger will happen later. The manufacturer has provided fast charging technology. With the power supply that comes with the smartphone, you can recharge the battery with a capacity of 3000 mAh from 0 to 100% in an hour and 45 minutes.


If you are a fan of budget devices, Motorola moto g6 deserves your attention. It will fully justify your investment. In addition to a nice design, it offers a good balance of possibilities. It has a dual camera, an NFC module for contactless mailings, a separate SIM card and memory slot, as well as a fingerprint scanner that works satisfactorily accurately.

Yes, the battery could have been a little more powerful and given you more independence from the mains, but this is an indicator that you can ignore against the background of other features.

Finally, we must add splash protection as an advantage. This means that the Motorola moto g6 can be used even when it is raining outside. No need to worry about its integrity. The company has made sure he is healthy for a long time.
