If you are a little low on budget to get Moto G6 but you are happy with Moto E lineup, yet you crave that superior build of the G lineup, Moto G6 Play is for you. It looks almost similar to Moto G6 but with a few noticeable compromises such as the camera housing only has a single sensor compared to dual on the G6 and there’s a lot more under the hood.
The device is an exact replica of G6 in design and builds, with a big 5.7-inch IPS LCD display up front in all Its glory, Its 2018 and Moto is all in for 18:9 displays so that’s what we see here. The resolution is not baffling though, with 720 x 1440 pixels in a display of this size. It makes a frugal density of 282PPI which might wary most users. The fingerprint display is rear mounted just below the camera housing, so no more gestures like the Moto G6. The display is clear and crisp with good color reproduction and viewing angles are good as well. The display is covered by Gorilla glass but we don't know which version it is.
The device is totally a budget fame on the inside with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 at the centre, coupled by Adreno 505 and 2 or 3 GB of RAM. The device is set to be released in 2 models - one with 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM while the other model will have 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM.
The Moto G6 Play is not the most powerful device in the category and We feel Motorola could’ve done better but Hey Its a budget device and until pricing is out, It would be little hard to comment on the treatment Motorola has done with these devices. The device is powerful enough for everyday use cases, but not for you if you like pushing your device to limits as with this one, they’ll be before you fairly soon. Adreno 505 can take almost all games but It isn’t made for heavy weight titles coming every day in the Play Store, given Its age, We don’t think there’s too much of heavy-gaming power left in this GPU.
Let’s talk cameras because there’s much-emphasized 13MP, f/2.0, 1.12μm pixel sensor at the rear of Moto G6 Play. Moto smartphones always have capable cameras and we are not surprised with this one either. It is definitely one of our top picks in the budget category. On the front, you get a big 8MP sensor which is decent enough for some good selfies, don’t expect much in low-light though. The camera interface is a bit slow and we hope Motorola fixes it with a software update.
Android 8.0 powers Moto G6 Play and It is a neat and clean version of Android with all the swiftness and no bloatware. We really like this from Motorola and makes the phone feel more fluid and responsive.
The battery is amazing on this one with 4000mAh of capacity, you surely get a day and a half from this smartphone. On top of that we also have fast charging here, so charging this big boy won’t be an issue. There’s no IP rating by Motorola so be safe and to keep this device safe, keep it away from liquids.
Overall, Moto G6 Play is a well-balanced phone with good performance and great battery. The slow camera is a bit frustrating but it is not a deal breaker.
