2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Premium, good looking design, with nice rounded corners, and a glass back
  • Light-weight at just 145g
  • Fast, accurate fingerprint scanner at the back
  • Supports facial recognition too (and it works well)
  • Good, tall, 5.84 inch 'bezel-less' display with a notch at the top
  • EMUI is now one of the better Android skins around, and has a lot of useful customizations
  • Decent performance similar to phones with the Snapdragon 625 processors - both regular use and casual games will be smooth and lag-free
  • Good set of dual rear cameras, with a nice bokeh effect, and bright colors (especially in daylight) - comparable to the other very good camera phone in this price bracket, the Redmi Note 5 Pro
  • The front camera has a 16Mp sensor and is pretty good too
  • 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]
  • EMUI is getting better with time, but is still a little cluttered
  • While performance is decent for most use cases, there are many better performing phones in this price bracket
  • Average loudspeaker
  • Battery life is average - with light to medium use, you will found yourself reaching for the charger by 7-8pm each day
  • Although the phone does theoretically support quick charging, a quick charging adapter is not included with the phone (will have to be purchased separately)
  • On the whole, while the P20 Lite is a good looking phone with a good display and good cameras, it's let down by performance and battery to some extent - it will find it difficult to compete on value with the likes of the Redmi Note 5 Pro, Asus Zenfone Max M1 Pro, Honor 7X, and Honor 9i
  • A bit on the tall side - not as easy to grip as the smaller Moto G6
