The Motorola Moto G6 Plus is another take on the standard sized Moto G6, just with a larger form factor. This is great in theory, but how well does this phone perform as a standalone device? We will take a look at some of its key specifications and features, and see if this is the budget plus sized phone for you.
The G6 Plus is very similar to the original G6 device, and the only real discerning factor is the slightly larger display. The system internals remain in the entry to mid-level range. The G6 Plus is also not water proof, so you will need to decide if this is a deal breaker for you or not.
Is it for you?
If you are a fan of Motorola, need a larger screen, but don’t want to break the bank, then yes, this phone is probably going to be a good fit for you. It has a Snapdragon 630 CPU, ensuring that performance is responsive and highly useable for a device in this price bracket.
Meet the Motorola Moto G6 Plus
The Motorola Moto G6 Plus is a 5.9 inch device that is brighter than the previous standard version, the Motorola Moto G6 Plus, and is bigger too. Unusually noticeable is the curved glass design that gives the G6 Plus a distinctly premium feel. The charging port is a USB Type C connector, which is the new standard connector, and this means that data transfer speeds are much better than previous versions of this port.
What we like
The faster internals make this device feel like a slightly more premium phone than the standard sized Moto G6, which is a positive. The camera is also slightly better, but not by any massive measure. The battery too is slightly better than the standard sized device. This makes the G6 Plus a worthy upgrade if you are looking for a slightly larger device.
The build quality is surprisingly sturdy, and the screen bezel is far smaller than previous generations of budget smart phones. Android 8 Oreo is the OS that this device ships with, and it does a great job of providing a usable interface.
Sound quality is really good, and the speakers are definitely able to produce sound in small areas. If you need more privacy, there is a 3.5mm headphone jack, clear and bright screen, and decent gaming performance to boot.
What we don’t like
There are obviously going to be a few quirks in a device that finds itself in this price bracket, but fortunately there are more pros than cons. The casing feels a little flimsy, but it looks and feels great in the hand.
There are 4GB of RAM in this unit, which is fine for normal use with applications such as messaging and video streaming, however your ability to play games is likely to be somewhat limited if you are planning to rely on this as a primary gaming device.
Should you buy it?
If you are looking for a decent plus sized phone that can play some of the more modern gaming titles at reasonable detail levels and framerates, then this could be a good choice for you. The combination of decent sized screen, good system internals, and forgiving battery makes this a reasonable choice.
