Review: Motorola Moto G6 Play
The $100 - $150 space is crowded with plastic phones that do little to impress. The G6 Play, with its reflective design and 2:1 screen, stands out from the crowd. It's an attractive phone that covers the basics in terms of signal, voice, and data performance, and it delivers far more battery life than others in this price range.
The simple software is something I've always appreciated about Motorola phones. Extra tools like the Moto Display improve the day-to-day experience of using the G6 Play. I wish the camera app included a few more features, and that the camera captured slightly better images.
The Motorola Moto G6 Play costs $130. That's $100 less than the Moto G6, which buys you better cameras and a better screen. If you value battery life and simplicity, the G6 Play is the better deal.
