Review: Motorola Moto G6
Motorola has a near-hit on its hands with the Moto G6. Aside from one glaring issue, it's a good phone that holds its own against other sub-$300 devices.
Motorola was smart to push the classy design from its X series down to the G. This mostly-glass phone is a pleasing piece of hardware to carry and use thanks to the narrow profile, good screen, and amenities such as USB-C and a headset jack. The G6 delivers solid battery life and fine LTE performance. The biggest problem is voice quality, which just isn't good enough.
The Android 8 platform is a solid base for Motorola's tasteful additions to the user interface. Things like the gesture-sensitive Moto Display, adjustable Moto Actions, and Voice Assistant help in ways that feel genuine and not me-too. The camera app offers a good mix of tools, but suffers just a bit in the speed department. The above-average picture quality makes up for the lack of camera speed.

In all, the Motorola Moto G6 is a fine addition to the company's roster of phones. If you rarely make voice calls, it gets everything else right. When pit against alternatives like the LG K20 V or Samsung Galaxy J7, it's not even a question of which is better: Motorola all the way. If you're a Verizon customer, the G6 is a bargain at $10 per month.
