So, I've had this phone a little over a year now. The phone is very decent, not super slow but not the best. It does not have a fingerprint reader.
Pros: lightweight, durable screen, removable battery
It's good if you're someone who isn't gaming or browsing constantly.
Cons: after a full year there are obviously some cons to it, the battery has now gotten to the point where sometimes it'll charge, other times it won't, the charger port gets loose after a while
Camera quality is mediocre at best
The screen on this phone is fairly decent, displays color well, in the year I've had it I've dropped it a couple times and has a crack along the bottom of the screen that isn't super noticeable
The speaker isn't a loud one, but it isn't super horrible either.
Phone works well on TMobile network.
All in all, if you asked to rate this phone, I'd give it a 5.5 out of 10
In less than a month I'll have had my e6 for a year. I have to credit Motorola for a high survivability screen. I've dropped this thing countless times even in high screen hazard areas. No damage yet. As far as an Android platform I haven't ran into any significant issues that I recall, but I'm not an app development guy or anything. The Internal speaker could be louder but it's audible. There is one aspect of this thing's personality that is sometimes challenging. It's only if you touch it. If you pick it up, if it's in your pocket, if your grip becomes somewhat precarious, this thing will start apps, turn on the flashlight and do not disturb or airplane mode (bad). It'll make phone calls. It will make system changes. If it's doing something that's to any degree imperative I have to approach it as if it were a loaded mouse trap. And the battery system seems to be as good as anybody else's. After nearly a year it still tests in good condition. I can't really evaluate the lasting time, I use it too heavily in it's andoid world.
chimerablack, 19 Dec 2020Why give mAh without the discharge rate? Completely useless...The discharge rate depends on usage. It's very different when on idle vs playing heavy games, for example.
Can not send MMS from this phone. Probably is not capable of doing so.
Meaning I can not sent message with attachment nor receive such. Not sure though as I am still in the process confirming if Android moto E6 is capable of MMS
I picked up one at Walmart last Aug out the door $60 hated so much a week later I picked up one more. I got one for my granddaughter she dropped her $800 Samsung and cracked her screen they want $250 to fixit. That's 5 e6. I play games, Ebay, and email on my Dell so this e6 is perfect . although its getting dirty maybe I'll drop it off the roof and go back to walmart and get a clean one.

MotoZguy, 13 Jun 2020I have 7 phones , I'm a tech guy and love collecting smartphones that I use for tethering when... moreMOTOZGUY, I just bought a Total Wireless Moto E6 at Target for $19. They price matched Amazon's $19.99 price, plus I received 5% off using my Target Redcard. This is my first smartphone, coming from a 3G Verizon Samsung Gusto 3, because of 3G going away in 2021.I have not activated it or ported my number over, as I want to get more familiar with it and move my contacts over(manually) before doing so. My question is where do I enter the #*#*4636*#*# you mention to lock in LTE? Do I have to be online, or can I do it in it's present state? The only thing I see now is the signal strength icon, but no LTE. If I look at SIM status, the mobile voice network type is CDMA-1xRTT. The same for mobile data network type. If in LTE, will the LTE icon appear next to the signal strength icon? Shouldn't always go to LTE if the signal is strong enough, or is it because I have not activated the phone and ported my number over?
Any help you can give to a newbie smart phone user would be appreciated. I live out in the country and only get 2 bars 3G on my flip phone, so want to make sure 4G LTE will work in my area.
RAM, 09 Oct 2019YESWhere is finger print set up
This phone does everything well I need it to:
- phone, text, hotspot (T-Mob)
- small use of few APKs
- decent pics & vids
- relatively expensive to buy
All while fitting completely in blue jeans back pocket AND with a removable battery. Aces up at my poker table.
nice size but 2gigram nope
POS! Do not buy!
Ive been using a little over a week now. Yes i know its old at this point but my phone broke and i needed a quick replacement. Anyway so far for what it offers as far as hardware and software its been pretty outstanding. Granted the specs are sub par compared to whats out there for the money i spent ($60 bucks) it has preformed rather flawlessly. Thank you Moto¡¡
Incredibly ADHD, reprograms itself, can't be trusted. I've had alarms fail because suddenly I was on Calcutta time; no message button which disappeared; never hear any notifications, though all settings say I should hear them loud and clear.

Is the battery replaceable or not in Moto E6
I have 7 phones , I'm a tech guy and love collecting smartphones that I use for tethering when I'm bord or just in the mood to use wifi off my phone , the Moto e6 when used with a good plan that gives you allot of data works perfect for mobile hotspot . The wifi signal on my Moto e6 is more stronger then my iPhone 6 wifi signal at 10-18 meters away even when I'm in my backyard I'm still connected to WiFi even tho the wifi is about 40 feet away from me . With the Moto e6 I can lock my phone on 4G LTE mode and not worry about it switching to CDMA only , by entering #*#*4636*#*# you can access the secret settings on Moto e6 and set you're phone to LTE only . With Moto e6 I can make all my calls on Google voice even tho I have no data left as long as you have a plan for unlimited talk and text it allows you to use Google voice ,so you can have the privacy of using Google voice to protect you're calls from being heard by a third party .
