2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 13+ Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • 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
  • 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

Display

  • Average IPS display - sunlight legibility, viewing angles, and color reproduction aren't too impressive

Software

  • 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

Performance

  • Powered by a Helio P22 (similar to Snapdragon 625), performance of the device is good enough for day-to-day use, and casual games
  • But it's not the best performer in this price bracket - the likes of Realme 3i have the much more powerful Helio P60

Camera

  • 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
  • Images are generally a bit on the dull side though
  • Bokeh shots take 2-3 seconds to process
  • Low light performance is expectedly average

Connectivity

  • Lacks a compass - which is a big miss at this price point in 2019

Battery

  • 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

Verdict

  • 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)

  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

  2. At the current price, the phone is matched with the likes of Realme 3i and Redmi 7 and that is tough competition for the new Motorola device

  8. Motorola makes a valiant effort in the sub 10K range, but the competition is fierce...With Realme, Redmi and even Samsung offering better chipsets, bigger batteries and better cameras, Moto seems to be wanting tad
