2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Premium, sleek, glass-based design - this is easily the best looking Moto G to date
  • The rear edges of the G6 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
  • Among the Moto G6 sisters - the Moto G6 is arguably the perfect size - not too big, not too small
  • Also has water-repellent coating
  • 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 fingerprint sensor is also easy to hit, and works efficiently
  • Modern, bright, clear Full HD+ 5.7-inch IPS LCD display with then new 18:9 display ratio - the new aspect ratio isn’t just good for the look of the handset, it means there’s more screen packed into a smaller body - it's the optimum size for the phone's overall size
  • 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
  • Decent daily performance, backed by the efficient Snapdragon 450 - it will do reasonably well for most uses except if you tend to use heavy games
  • Decent set of dual rear cameras - pictures generally come out well, and the portrait mode is well 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 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
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Decent (though not exceptional) battery life - will last the day with moderate use
  • Fast charging support

2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • Outdoor visibility of the display could have been better
  • Performance is decent, but far from the best in the price bracket (that space belongs to the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro) - Motorola could have done with a more powerful SoC
  • The camera, though it's pretty decent in quality, can be somewhat slow at times, so shooting moving subjects can be an issue
  • On the whole, the Moto G6 looks great, has good software, performs alright, and has a decent set of cameras - seen alone, its a good device - but in this competitive segment, with the likes of the Redmi Note 5 Pro, and the Asus Max Pro M1 around (both of which are better equipped, offer better performance, and have arguably better cameras as well), Moto might find the going tough, in all but the most loyal Motorola fan segments
