2-minute Review [Positives]
  • With a flat metal backplate, 2.5D curved glass on the front, and a display that dominates the front fascia, the Honor 7C feels sleek and premium
  • The lack of antenna lines, subtle Honor branding, minimal regulatory information lend a very clean and minimal look to the back panel
  • Build quality is top-notch too, and the phone feels solid in the hand
  • The rear-mounted fingerprint sensor is fast and accurate, and is ergonomically placed - it can be used for a variety of shortcuts such as taking a picture, answering calls, and sliding down the notification panel
  • The Honor 7C also supports face recognition, using the 8-megapixel front camera - it works quite well for the most part in good light
  • Decent 5.99 inch 18:9 modern, tall display - colours are vibrant and viewing angles are spot on (although outdoor visibility is average, and resolution could have been better)
  • Battery life is decent (though not overly impressive)- with moderate use, the phone will last the day - EMUI also has a host of battery saving features, one of which reduces the screen resolution when you're running low on power
  • Premium, sleek, glass-based design - this is easily the best looking Moto G to date
  • The rear edges of the G6 Plus are curved, and that allows it to sit much more comfortably in the palm of your hand than previous models – if you've seen the Samsung Galaxy S7, it’s a similar curvature on the back
  • Motorola has also kept the fingerprint sensor on the front of the phone, just below the display, but it doesn’t take up much space, so the bottom bezel is quite thin and looks good. The sensor is easy to hit, and works efficiently
  • Top-quality, modern, bright, Full HD+ IPS LCD display with then new 18:9 display ratio - it has good colors, and viewing angles too
  • Moto continues to excel in the software part, keeping the UI close to stock Android while adding just the right set of add-ons like Moto Actions (gesture control), night display, and fingerprint sensor based navigation
  • Good, solid performance, backed by the Snapdragon 630 - does well under all use cases, including games
  • Good set of dual rear cameras - pretty good for this price bracket - the focus is really quick, and pictures come out crisp and natural, and the portrait mode is decently implemented too
  • The phone also comes with image recognition software that enables you to take photos of objects you come across, or landmarks in a city you’re visiting, and get information about them, for example a Wikipedia page, or details of where you can buy an item
  • On the front of the Moto G6 Plus is a 8MP selfie camera, which is pretty decent too - it also has a filters mode, which overlays Snapchat-like frippery such as cat features or bunny ears (though it takes a long time to process images)
  • The front camera also has an effective group selfie mode that works similar to a panoramic images mode
  • Video recording is decent too, and there is a pretty decent slow-mo mode too
  • Good, powerful loudspeaker
  • Good battery life - will comfortably last the day with moderate to heavy use
  • Fast charging support
  • On the whole, the Moto G6 Plus looks great, has good software, performs good, and has a good set of cameras - all in all its a strong choice in this price bracket - it's a solid step up from it's younger cousin, the Moto G6, with better performance, camera and battery life - and could compete well with the likes of Nokia 6.1 (which has a more premium build, but lacks dual rear cameras) and the Redmi Note 5 Pro (which has better performance and battery, but lacks stock Android)
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Pretty wide which hinders one-handed use considerably
  • The Honor 7C runs Huawei's EMUI custom skin atop Android - although EMUI has matured over the years and is now one of the most versatile and feature-loaded skins out there, it is still cluttered in some places and laden with bloat - a multitude of Honor's applications compete with Google's own, and the phone comes with a lot of 3rd party apps pre-installed
  • Although performance is decent in day-to-day use, it does struggle with intensive workloads - with multiple apps open in the background, you will experience lags - other phones in this price bracket, even those with the same Snapdragon 450 (like the Redmi 5) seem to do better
  • Average dual camera system on the rear - there is lack of detail in the images, and low light shots are barely usable - the blur (bokeh) effect is also not the most accurate, and edge detection around the subject is poor - video recording is strictly average too - the cameras on competing phones like Redmi Note 5 and Realme 1 are significantly better
  • The 8-megapixel front shooter is average too - it can take decent photos in good light but struggles in low light, producing noisy and murky shots
  • The speaker that is very shrill and tinny
  • No modern USB-Type C port for charging and data transfers
  • The smartphone also does not support quick charging, and takes more than two and a half hours to charge fully using the included charger
  • On the whole, potential buyers are likely to find a much better value proposition in the likes of the Oppo Realme 1 (which lacks a fingerprint sensor but offers a better-rounded package), or the Redmi Note 5 (which offers far more value for money) - the Honor 7C will also face tough competition from Honor's own 9 Lite (which has a higher-resolution display, a better set of cameras, and a sleek glass body)
  • A bit on the tall side - not as easy to grip as the smaller Moto G6
