Motorola has a line of G series smartphones that are being offered to the consumers throughout 2018, in particular there is one that will be discussed in this article, the Moto G6, this mid-range handset launched in the United States in May 2018, and just recently launched in Australia at the beginning of July.
This 5.7-inch new edge-to-edge HD + Max Vision touchscreen display has a resolution of 1080 x 2160 mega pixels. The average retail price ranges between $200 (with a provider plan,) and without a provider plan $230-$250 in the United States. Users can expect to see and feel an all around scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla glass casing with a 3D contoured back for a comfortable grip. The fingerprint sensor is located in the front center of the device, with three microphones at the bottom right of the fingerprint sensor, and a speaker located at the top-front of the device. The Moto G6 is available in the color: Indigo Black.
Now let’s talk what’s under the hood, according to the Motorola website, the Moto G6 Operating System runs on Android 8.0 Oreo, the hardware consist of a Snapdragon 450 processor 1.8GHz octa-core, the US version comes with 3GB RAM, (other countries state 4GB RAM) with 64GB of internal storage, and uses a microSB with expandable storage up to 128GB. The battery size is a 3000 mAh, and average battery testing has rated the battery life as average for normal usage, and fair for more intense usage (such as heavy gaming) on an average 4-6 hours before needing a recharge. A Turbo-charger is included in the box giving about 1 hour to a hour and a half for full charging. The Moto G6 still sports a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB-C port.
The cameras on this device are not bad for a mid-range phone, but don’t expect the best; it will pass with a pretty decent score, though. The main rear camera has a slight protrude with dual cameras, and a 12mp and a 5 mp with f/1.8 aperture lens.
The rear video lens records up to 1080p, with time- lapse video as well as slow motion video.
