2-minute Review [Positives]
  • The Cranberry Red variant looks stylish with a unique gradient scheme
  • Compact size & light-weight - fits comfortably into your hand
  • Modern front with a dot-notch display
  • Reasonably fast rear mounted fingerprint sensor, and face unlock
  • Motorola continues to keep the software on it's phones clean, and simple - it's basically stock Android with a few useful Moto add-ons
  • Powered by a Helio P22 (similar to Snapdragon 625), performance of the device is good enough for day-to-day use, and casual games
  • Just about ok camera setup for the price bracket - on the rear is a dual-rear camera setup carrying a primary 13MP lens paired with a secondary 2MP depth sensor - on the front is a 8MP camera
  • Details, dynamic range, and exposure levels are ok
  • Selfies come out decent too
  • Google Lens is integrated into the camera app
  • The stock Android, 720p display, and battery of 3000mAh combine to give a decent (though, not exceptional) battery life - it will last you a full day with moderate use
  • One of the rare smartphones today that packs a removable battery - which gives the freedom to swap batteries when the original one is discharged or goes out of commission for good
  • Simple, basic polycarbonate design (it's not as premium though as some of its competitors)
  • Compact and sleek (especially for a device that packs a 4000 mAh battery) - good for one-handed use
  • Relatively light while still delivering good battery life
  • Decent fingerprint scanner on the rear
  • One of the cheapest phones to come with a Super AMOLED display - the screen is vibrant and effective even in bright daylight - and this is a good phone to enjoy video content on
  • Samsung's OneUI is one of the cleaner, more refined Android UIs at present
  • Decent all-round performance with the Exynos 7884 octa-core chipset (similar to Snapdragon 450) - day-to-day performance is reasonably smooth
  • Decent rear dual-camera setup: 13-megapixel primary sensor + 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens
  • The primary camera captures good images in daylight
  • Both the rear and front cameras come with Live Focus mode so you can adjust the blur in the background even while clicking pictures
  • Uses the modern Type-C USB charging port
  • Good battery life with a large 4000mAh battery - you will get about 1.5 days of moderate use
  • 15W fast charging support
  • Overall, the Galaxy M10s is a good option for this price bracket if display quality is your primary criteria (you won't get an AMOLED display at this price elsewhere) - on the other hand, if you want to look at better all-round phones, with somewhat better cameras and performance, you can consider alternatives from Xiaomi and Realme
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • The Polished Graphite variant has a simple mirror finish, and looks a bit cheap
  • For both the color variants, the back is very glossy, and therefore a fingerprint magnet
  • Average IPS display - sunlight legibility, viewing angles, and color reproduction aren't too impressive
  • But it's not the best performer in this price bracket - the likes of Realme 3i have the much more powerful Helio P60
  • Images are generally a bit on the dull side though
  • Bokeh shots take 2-3 seconds to process
  • Low light performance is expectedly average
  • Lacks a compass - which is a big miss at this price point in 2019
  • Overall, the Moto E6s will find it a struggle to compete with the likes of Realme 3i and Redmi 7 which offer significantly better value (more powerful chips, bigger batteries and better cameras)
  • The back panel is prone to fingerprint smudges and you should ideally apply a cover
  • Having said that, the competition in this segment is pretty tough, and you will get better performing phones from the Xiaomi and Realme competition
  • Focus speed is on the slow side
  • In lowlight conditions, the quality definitely goes down
  • While decent for the price, it's not quite the best camera phone for this price bracket - that award would go to the Xiaomis and Realmes of this range

  1. Possibly one of the only phones at this price to offer 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which is a great, but it compromises a bit too much in other areas, which makes it a little difficult to recommend
