    With the Moto G6 Plus you're getting a top-quality display, battery life to spare, and a camera that doesn't disappoint (barring defective lenses, that is). In our book that's the three main pillars covered. Top that with software that touches up on pure Android in all the right places, and we really struggled with that Cons list below.


    Super bright display, also very accurate in one of the modes (though not by default)
    Dependable battery life, quick top-ups
    Superb audio quality and loudness through the 3.5mm jack, very loud speaker too
    A fine blend of vanilla Android and proprietary customizations


    A bit tall, and the light weight doesn't leave a premium vibe
    No notification LED and MotoDisplay isn't quite like an always on display (not that it automatically renders the LED redundant, just saying)
    Battery consumption in standby is higher than other implementations of this power efficient chipset

    A classier mid-range phone
    Moto G6 Plus Review

    There's no other way to say it, Motorola still masters the art of the mid-range phone with the Moto G6 Plus. While the standard Moto G6 may strike the ultimate balance of price and capabilities, the G6 Plus is a great example of the complete package you can get for what's still a very affordable $349.

    Motorola managed to get a great-looking and feeling body, a large 18:9 display and solid specs together for an affordable price, while also adding value in many other places. Its software is still top-notch and filled with useful features, the camera is surprisingly good despite some AI shortcomings, there's support for dual SIM, an SD card and a headphone jack, and holy moly the battery life is spectacular. The only real shortcomings to speak of are the slippery body and some sporadic performance hiccups — but let's remember the price bracket this phone is playing in ... I can forgive those two issues.

    The Good

    Fantastic battery life
    Clean, simple software
    Big, nice-looking screen
    Above-average camera
    Headphone jack and FM radio
    Dual SIM + SD card

    The Bad

    Sporadic performance hiccups
    Slippery to hold
    "Splashproof" not waterproof
    Moto X4 may be a better value

    PhoneArena (G6 Play, G6, and G6 Plus):


    The sixth generation of Motorola's G-series leaves positive impressions in more ways than it has negatives. Thoughtful design choices coalesce with stock Android and long battery life for the ultimate in daily usage, and software update convenience.

    Each phone has a weak point – just average battery life from the G6, subpar audio on the G6 Play, or inconsistent camera on the G6 Plus, but on aggregate the devices flaunt a very good value-for-money ratio.

    With that out of the way, we regret to inform you that the most souped-up member of the trio – the G6 Plus – isn't planned for the American market, but the other two won't leave you disappointed at what Motorola told us will be a $199 price for the G6 Play, and $249 for the G6 stateside.

    At these tags you can only find a few Chinese company models in the US, like the Honor 7X. Well, Moto is owned by one, too, and yet the brand has way more cachet with American customers, hasn't gotten in hot water with the intelligence agencies, and its wares are compatible with all US carriers from the get-go.

    The Motorola Moto G6 Plus is the best of the G series, representing a considerable shift for the series and push towards premium.

    That said, we do find the presence of three different handsets (G6 Play, G6 and G6 Plus) a little confusing. The Plus is barely any larger than the standard G6, too, which feels like a missed opportunity. And the power available can be found for less cash in the Nokia 6, which puts the Plus in a tricky spot in some respects.

    Taken in isoltation, however, and the G6 Plus offers aplenty. There's a dual camera, fast-charging, an 18:9 aspect ratio screen, modern glass design, fingerprint scanner, and decent battery life to boot (far better than the G6, we found). The power boost compared to the standard G6 also puts this phone in a much more comfortable position.

    As an owner of a G6 plus, here are a few responses and additions to the above reviews...

    Build quality seems very good, the phone really feels premium.
    It is big, but looks good and is not unwieldy. It's tall but not very wide thanks to the 18:9 screen. It's narrower than the iPhone 8 plus, and it looks much better and more modern. I do notice it more in my pocket than my previous smaller phone.
    The back is slippery. The phone is supplied with a clear rubber cover which solves this problem, at the expensive of not looking quite so good and adding a little to the size.
    The screen is excellent.
    Battery life seems very good so far. I don't recognise the claim that the standby power consumption is high - overnight, my phone typically loses about 4% battery charge in 8 hours. (update: 1% last night!)
    The camera is good and fast, not slow as several reviews claimed. Maybe Motorola improved the software.
    The rear camera protrudes quite far, but this hasn't really bothered me in actual use.
    Sound is very good, both through headphones and the built-in speaker.
    The phone seems very fast. I didn't notice any "sporadic performance hiccups" as claimed by one review. Again, Motorola may have improved the software.
    The software is close to stock Android. Motorola's additions are subtle and mostly useful.
    Fast charge works well.
    The default green wallpaper is horrible, but easily changed.

    I agree to the above post. My 6gplus seems to have none of the down sides mentioned by some reveiwers

    Been using my G6 plus since launch and it's been wonderful so far, no complaints whatsoever here as well.
