Remember the Nexus 5 long gone but not forgotten. The Motorola Moto G6+ carries the same mantle a medium priced good all rounder - battery infinitely better & sound/volume as well logical improvements to the core of essential base line Android Pie still without excessive overlays of unwanted watery themes & such like.
Pick one up & try it your wallet will be next.
If we consider the latest software updates which phone has the better overall cameras in hardware and in practice...The XA2 Ultra or the Moto G6 Plus?
Not a fan of the camera. Its useless in bad lighting. Screen resolution is bad. Old Gorilla Glass version (3). It doesnt have 6 GB of RAM as this page says. No wireless charging, so take care of the charging port. Battery is excellent though and the price is good. Just got updated to Android Pie which made the phone much faster and smoother.
Points: 7 out of 10. Would be 9 if the camera was better and it had the newest version of Gorilla Glass. Already some minor scratches on mine :(
It's 15th of april 2019 and I am still stuck on June 2018 patch on Oreo. How did you get the update. I am starting to worry......
Cammera is Not good. the photos come out with little definition and blur when magnifying, even in full daylight and clean lens
AnonD-841613, 03 Mar 2019I am still waiting for android pie in Pakistan, Do you have any idea for android pie update in... moreIt is available now, I got update on March 9, 2019. On my Moto G6+ in Pakistan.
10/10 Amazing Phone
Network never drops the signal below 4G+
The size and body style is very comfortable and perfect for my bigger hands, the build quality feels amazing I just love the materials used.
Display resolution is very good I do not see any pixels the fonts and icons are sharp.
I bought mine with Android 8.0 after the initial security updates for October, November and December it upgraded to Android 9 without any issues the phone got faster and I like the UI even more.
Mine is with 4GB Ram and 64GB storage space which for my needs is more than enough.
The rear cameras are really good which I use to take pictures of documents and stuff to share on my work chat and the text is sharp as it gets, I just took couple pictures with the front camera and it's decent enough, but again I do not have any need for it.
What I did not expected was the speaker which surprised me in a good way and I really like it, it's my first phone with forward facing speaker and I can't go back to anything else from now on.
I will finish with my favorite part of the phone which is the finger print reader I LOVE IT! it detects my fingers (I set up my thumb, point and middle finger) from every angle it functions as navigation buttons and it's really accurate works really really well.
I'm glad I gave chance to Motorola and I'm happy with my choice to purchase this phone.
I have owned phone for a few weeks and it is exceptional value for money. If you have thought about getting a new phone and want something that is actually going to last and compete with the flagship phones for much much less - this is the phone for you. The specs of this phone Vs iPhone xs, galaxy s9 /S10 etc are clear to see you get 6gb of ram and 64gb storage + additional SD card slot 128 or 256gb .
Phone is Android and quick to get the hang of has a very clear screen great cameras great battery life. Fast charging and has all of the things you expect of a high end phone except the price. I would recommend to anyone and why pay much more for an iPhone s9/s10 that's slower ? If your unsure by all means go to any carphone warehouse and they will show you everything you need to see. Don't get scammed buying a cheap & old Samsung/iPhone for the same price .
I am still waiting for android pie in Pakistan, Do you have any idea for android pie update in Pakistan ?
The android 9.0 update has been releases in every country but Not in Pakistan?
Do I have to wait for the 9.0 or I've to forget it?
Still no Android Pie for the EU version.
Native SIP is not supported.
Camera useless at low light.
Jeffersonian, 30 Jan 2019I have a Motorola G4, which I really liked...when it worked !
It was replaced under warranty ... moresorry to hear that, well i tried galaxy note and iphone but back to motorola.
first try backup and reset, i still use xt1053 from 2103, except battery ot as strong 5y a go, rest still working flawless, my friend even still use moto defy from 2012 but using custom OS
In terms of overall loudness and clarity (with a bit of bass) which one has the better speakers...the Moto G6 Plus or the OnePlus 6?
Trying to compare the Moto G6 Plus with the Nokia 7.1. My question is re the Android 9 Pie update for the Moto phone.
1. Does it have option for systemwide dark theme? (including the Settings menu)
2. Does the selfie camera have EIS or screen flash?
3. Does it now have NFC and blue light filter shortcut toggle?
Can you set the time for blue light filter to turn on?
4. What bitrate (in kbps) is the audio recorded during video? And in what format?
5. Does it have the "Clear All" option in the multitasking pane?
6. Does it support full Android 9 Pie gestures similar to the Pixel ?
7. Are you able to customise the Google search bar on the main screen? (e.g. change size, colour, transparency, etc.)
8. IS there a Wide angle selfie camera? And does it have autofocus?
9. Are there any additions to Moto actions?
I have a Motorola G4, which I really liked...when it worked !
It was replaced under warranty (went bad only after a few months), and only one and a half year in, the new one went also bad (was often flaky)... and Motorola tell me they cannot (or don't want) to do anything about it, don't even repair or support this model anymore, etc...
So my next phone (very soon) will not be a Motorola phone, which is a shame, but I have now lots of alternatives.
Please consider companies who stand behind their products to purchase a new phone.
PS: Just got a new phone that I really love, unfortunately it does not work with T-Mobile in the US...according to both t-mobile and Sony (Firmware is not adequate etc..), so again I have no better choice than return it.
I don't know yet which company to recommend for new phone, but outside of the "two giants" (Samsung, and Apple), lots of choices: the emerging winners will be in my view companies with great validation procedures as well as reasonable product support.
G6 Plus is my third Motorola - first the Defy, then the 4G version of the first-gen G (my wife ended up getting one of these too) so when we finally decided to upgrade again, we stuck with the Motorola, and both bought G6 Plus. Performance has been satisfying for us - but we're not power users, not gaming or regularly streaming video. Being modest users, we can often get nearly 2 days out of a charge. I've seen a few comments that the fingerprint scanner doesn't work but we've had no problem with it (except when we try to unlock each other's phone, so probably a good thing my wife's finger doesn't unlock my phone).
My one BIG complaint is that the glass back cracked for no apparent reason, and there are a number of similar complaints on the Motorola user forum, but Motorola are denying any responsibility for it.
I want to know if someone knows about android pie update in centro america??
Having used the G6 and G6 Play I can say the whole series is well designed and easy to use. However, the G6 Plus camera is awesome and even the battery is good for a days normal usage. So far no problems.
SupershopperNz , 21 Sep 2018From New Zealand the Motorola MotoG6 plus has the right pricing & credentials to hold its ... moreI live in NZ as well. My old Moto G4Plus has a battery management issue that a new battery and factory default didn't fix. Looking at the G6 Plus but they're so darn expensive and hard to fined. Way cheaper on Amazon . Maybe use an old Nexus 4 on the meantime and wait for the G7 Plus to come out or buy a Nokia but I need dual SIM so not sure if the Nokia phones here in NZ have them.
