James, 16 Apr 2018Owen, don't worry about the design of the back. You're gonna be putting a case on it anyway.Design of the back is not that bad. Front 50-50 (less bezelles would be better)... Problem is shape of the phone. If you put this phone, Motorola X4, Motorola 1Gen, Samsung Galaxy S3 in case, ok, maybe back will be different because of different holes (camera, flash etc), and maybe different case colors... :D
But front, with this soap, shape design is the same, like that phones from the past. Every OEM has changd that old design, except Motorola under Lenovo ownership and thats a bad part (with low end specs with mid prices). Sales of Motorola branded phones, says that also, since 2015..
Owen, 14 Apr 2018Yes becuse for him Lenovorola is the best in the world with same ugly design from 2012, and in... moreOwen, don't worry about the design of the back. You're gonna be putting a case on it anyway.
AnonD-80459, 15 Apr 2018You are super blind dude. You probably have no design experience whatsoever and come here to t... moreBut Motorola G6 design is the same, not only that, same ugly design, like Samsung Galaxy S3 rounded design. Motorola X4 also looks like Motorola Moto G1, or S3, same goes to this G6. Are you stuck in 2011-2013 or what¿
(Lenovo) Motorola is not even in top 5 OEMs in smartphone global share, maybe not even in top 10. How they can be no 2 in India, when No 2 is Samsung, now?
Owen, 15 Apr 2018Maybe not entry level chip for Lenovorola lol, but

Motorola developers know Android better than anyone else because they were part of the Google Android team at some point. You can't compare crappy MIUI with pure stock Android. Also Motorola has been here doing the same thing ever since Samsung was a company dealing with fish.
They have more durable phones, better call quality and reception than everyone else. Most durable batteries (takes longer to degrade than the rest). They still have the same battery providers as Motorola Solutions (the public safety Motorola) because they have the same old bold Motorola brand logo.
You trolls have no idea what you're talking about. Also it's the only company that doubled their sales in the US in the last year. In Latin America and India they are number 2 among all. Just give it a couple of years for Lenovo to fix what Google broke with worldwide distribution and availability and you'll see Motorola in the top 2 -3 again.
Make some research before being such a hater on the company that gave you the first cell phone.
Owen, 15 Apr 2018Nah this design is outdated, ugly, and for blind fanboys like you, only, and thats a reason ba... moreYou are super blind dude. You probably have no design experience whatsoever and come here to troll. Samsung uses the same design in their phones for years and you don't complain. The s9 back is a rip off of the LG G2 back, the front is the same as the S8 wich is the same as the S7 with less borders, wich is the same as the S6 wich has the same front as the failure S5 and the list can go on. Not to mention it all started as a iPhone wannabe (it stills try to be with their stupid animoji). The X4 and G6 have an original design, just look at that awesome camera bump dude. It's original, looks like a dslr ring from a lens. The front is theirs, you can relate to it being a Motorola without even reading the brand name. That's the whole point. Put 5 phones together and you will know this one is a Motorola, it has an identity among all these other copies.
AnonD-80459, 15 Apr 2018G6 has Snapdragon 450 wich is equal to 625. That is not an entry level chipset.Maybe not entry level chip for Lenovorola lol, but
Xiaomi have one low end phone, redmi 5, with, same SD 450, and price of that Xiaomi is 90 euros now.. And both are Chinese brands, just Motorola is sub brand od Chinese brand, now.
BLS NE, 13 Apr 2018Only thing Moto did right was avoid the notch. Still, with these phones Moto has left the door... moreToo bad that isn't happening. HMD Global is not bringing the 7 Plus to the U.S.
AnonD-80459, 15 Apr 2018What are you talking about? The design is brand new from the X4. Are you blind?Nah this design is outdated, ugly, and for blind fanboys like you, only, and thats a reason bad sales of Lenovorola since 2015. If you wanna, at least to know what is good design, look at some Samsung phones from 2018, LG (V30), Huawei Mate 10 Pro, Xiaomi Mix 2s, and others normal phones with actual design. Even Nokia (HMD), have better designed phone, (7 Plus), than this. Motorola is now owned by Lenovo, and about design.. Well, i guess you see, no difference, beetwen this and Moto G 1th gen from 2013, unless you're to blind to notice? X4? Haha..
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2018Motorola is also a Chinese brand now since it is owned by Lenovo.Motorola is from the United States, it operates there. Even though it's owned by Lenovo, they do most of their design, software and testing in the US and Brazil. Please inform yourself better before doing such comments.
techperson211, 14 Apr 2018Only bad about this is the chipset for g6 play and g6, really entry level chipset? G6 has Snapdragon 450 wich is equal to 625. That is not an entry level chipset.
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2018Yes it is ugly since the phone don't have a notch right? it is ugly since they don't copy iPho... moreNot for that, but because Lenovorola use same design, from time of Google branded Motorola (Moto G 1gen for example), and that was in 2013 This is 2018...
Notch is bad, Samsung Galaxy S series from 2018 have good front design
Owen, 14 Apr 2018Yes becuse for him Lenovorola is the best in the world with same ugly design from 2012, and in... moreYes it is ugly since the phone don't have a notch right? it is ugly since they don't copy iPhones design right?
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2018Oh you don't like the design? Oh you don't like the specs? Oh people of little faith, wait u... moreYes becuse for him Lenovorola is the best in the world with same ugly design from 2012, and in this case, low end specs from 2016. At least with Lenovo he gets original brend, not sub par with M logo made and owned.. Well by Lenovo in China.
I like the back circular camera.
My friend have a X4.
It looks like a premium wrist watch if we look in different angles. Loved it.
But it was 16:9 display and much more costly. So i didn't bought. This one will be my next
Only bad about this is the chipset for g6 play and g6, really entry level chipset?
Design seems cool not like all those other Iphones ripoffs in the segment.
For all the people complaining about old design.
Let me Remind you that even Xiaomi has been using the same design for its Redmi and Redmi Note Phones From the Past Few years.
And No one Seems to complain.
