2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 8 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.


  • 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 fingerprint sensor is easy to hit, and works efficiently
  • A bit on the tall side - not as easy to grip as the smaller Moto G6


  • Very good quality, modern, bright, Full HD+ IPS LCD display with then new 18:9 display ratio - it has good colors, and viewing angles 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


  • Good, solid performance, backed by the Snapdragon 630 - does well under all use cases, including games


  • Good set of dual rear cameras - pretty decent for this price bracket - the focus is really quick, and pictures come out crisp and natural, and the portrait mode is decently implemented too
  • 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


  • 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
  • On the whole, the Moto G6 Plus is a pretty good phone when seen by itself - it looks good, has good software, performs good, and has a good set of cameras - and it's a solid step up from it's younger cousin the Moto G6 too, with better performance, camera and battery life - the only problem is there are even better and cheaper phones now in the mid-range segment, and Moto might be a bit too late for this party - it will find it difficult to compete against the likes of Nokia 6.1 Plus (cheaper, faster, more premium build, Android One promise, though it lacks dual rear cameras) and the Redmi Note 5 Pro (cheaper, faster, better battery, though it lacks stock Android), and of course the new reigning performance champion in the mid-range, the Poco F1
