Sure, Motorola still sells the Moto Z series phones and their intriguing Moto Mods, but the most up-to-date model we have here in Australia is the Moto Z2 Play and that's more than a year old at the time of writing.
We never saw the Moto Z2 Force and there's no news around the Moto Z3 Play showing up Down Under either. The Moto X4 is sold locally, but it has a lot less presence than the G series phones, which are the ones people buy in large quantities.
All of this puts a lot of weight onto Motorola's more affordably priced handsets and especially the well-regarded Moto G series phones. Thankfully, while it's not an extraordinary evolution of the Moto G concept, the Moto G6 Plus is a solid and reliable handset that outperforms its siblings for the most part.
- Pleasing 18:9 display.
- Dual SIM as well as microSD, rather than instead of.
- Solid but unspectacular camera performance.
- Snapdragon 630 delivers solid results.
- Simple actions work well, but this isn't Android One.
- Sadly no water resistance.
- A great balance of battery life and performance.
- USB-C isn't common in the mid-range space yet.
- A good phone, but more of the same from Moto, rather than something innovative.
