Picture not described

Motorola states its budget case for 2018 with the Motorola Moto G6. It's not a wow-bang type handset, but it is a quiet, solid and reliable performer.

The good

  • 18:9 display
  • Good battery performance
  • Camera is good for its price range

The bad

  • Ordinary performance
  • Thin fingerprint sensor can be hard to hit
  • No water resistance

Motorola's taken its Moto G recipe and honed it for the Moto G6 with pleasing results.

Motorola has focused in the past few years on providing solid budget handsets. The Moto G series is its long-standing (and most widely available in Australia) take on an affordable phone.

The Motorola Moto G6 doesn't break new ground or bring new concepts to the budget/mid-range space, but it's a sound handset for the money.


  • Adds 18:9 display
  • All glass design looks great but smudges easily
  • Small fingerprint sensor.


  • Dual lens, but second lens only adds depth effect
  • Average mid-range performer


  • Average mid-range performance
  • Simple actions work well
  • Lacks water resistance

Battery life

  • USB C charging
  • Good battery life from a low-end processor


  • A good upgrade handset for existing Moto owners.
