I have had a few motorola phones but this one is the best one I've had.I recently got the Motorola moto g6 and I have not experienced the things that some of the people who have reviewed this phone.Unless you are on the phone non stop the battery last quite awhile.I charge it up as soon as I get up and it only takes about 30 minutes to charge it from 75 percent on battery.I start using it around 7am and I make quite a few calls and do some searching on google plus the emails and text messages I still have around 75 to 80 percent battery left at 8 pm.so the battery really isn't that bad unless you are on it all day without stopping.The camera on it takes really good pictures and I don't see any pictures that are bad.I had a google pixel 3 before this one and the Moto G6 has just as good camera as the pixel 3.I don't get all the smudges on it like others do but I don't use the phone if I am eating something or if I have touched some things with oil or grease on them.I guess if you wash your hands or at least wipe them off when eating you won't get many smudges.I have had phones that cost $800 to $1000 and the Moto G6 works just as good if not better than some of those.Get one and try it on your own and then see if you agree with the other reviews that say it's bad.
the motog6,had for 15 months works well at first then all of a sudden incoming calls you can hear then it gets lower and lower and that was the end of the speaker not a good buy.
J B, 19 Jun 2020I have yet to figure out why my screen goes to sleep every 8 seconds unless I am touching it. ... moreYou need to increase the sleep timing of your Moto g6 . Settings>display>advanced> sleep . Hope it would help or of that does not ,better factory reset your phone
I have yet to figure out why my screen goes to sleep every 8 seconds unless I am touching it. I can't pass the phone to anyone without telling them to keep touching the screen or I have to use my fingerprint to turn it back on. Aggravating.
I've had my G6 for around 6 months now. I have had no performance issues, the screen is more than adequate for games and movies, the speaker/call volume is great, the camera takes excellent pictures... I am sure that if I had loads of money to swap out phones like fashion accessories I would begin to obsess over its faults, but...it's a phone. I like it well enough.
I suppose I could complain about dismal battery life and no physical keypad, but these problems are common to all smartphones.
I could also complain about not being able to work with it in my pocket, but that's also common to all smartphones.
So, similar to comparing the quality of mobile programming to the quality of desktop programming, this phone is awesome...for a smartphone. But for a cellphone in general? I would trade it in a heartbeat for a good flip phone, but they stopped making good flip phones years ago.

An outright, permanent failure of global manufacturing would be better for all parties, but a temporary setback would only make matters worse!
I bought Motto g6 play 1year ago this past December. It was great...fast,etc until about 2 months later. I didn't take it back,thinking i need to get used to it. The phone continued to go downhill. It got very slow in all aspects. Over last 2months,it started to freeze up. I had to wait 5 minutes sometimes to unfreeze. I would be talking but unable to access any buttons because the screen was black. Or i couldn't hang up because of the black screen, unable to press options during the call or even unable to hang up. Also, i was unable to send photos, attachments and even longer texts through the Messages app. At the end here, i only used Messenger. Yesterday, it froze up and remained that way until it died. During that time, the phone was continuously lit up. The battery in inaccessible. That was my last idea. Otherwise, I'm just out a phone. I've used many phones over 40 years and this is the worst. From other reviews, I see similar issues from various people. Motorola has lost my vote. Cheaper is Just cheap sometimes.
I bought motog6plus last yr.in jan2019,in June 2029, experienced speaker problem,got it repaired from service center in Nashik,again in dec2029, the same problem cropped up,got it repaired from service center,But this time they damaged the touch screen finger lock mechanism,when i put my comments in writing in job card,they mentioned that the damage was earlier,which is not a case.
Company had negative responce,it seems that service centre/ company are interested in paid services only.
WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND TO BUY FROM MOTO
My phone got shutdown in just 13 months. Service provider says it's motherboard problem. Many friends have faced the same i.e.once warranty is over, problems start.
One key minus which I think should be mentioned in the final pros/cons section: the phone has NO notification LED.
Absolutely agree about the problem with audio problems. None of my five external devises work in my g6 earphone connection.
If you want to use your phone to make/receive phone calls, I advise people NOT to buy this phone.
The call volume on this phone is absolutely abysmal. I bought this phone last week and had to return it - speakerphone loudness is barely above a whisper. Quite incredible how Motorola have managed to destroy an otherwise fine phone like this.
People should google 'Moto G6 poor call volume' or similar & they will see that this is a known issue with this phone. I repeat, do NOT buy this phone if you intend to use it to make/receive phone calls.
I have been using this phone for a month. I have faced no issues with this phone till now. Phone works smoothly. Camera quality is good. Speakers are good. Good calling quality and signal reception. Battery though is 3000mAh it lasts more than a day(24hrs) with average usage. Processor though older but it works fine on this phone and runs all game smoothly. Moto tweaks are in handy, enjoyable and gives extra taste to overall user experience. Overall it is a very decent phone and looks premium too.
What more do u expect from a phone ?
