The Moto G6 is mid premium smartphone priced from Rs. 13,999. This handset comes with 18:9 aspect ratio screen and powered by not so latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa core processor. However the handset looks a lot different, unique and awesome.

What makes Moto G6 different is the looks, the handset looks a lot different from the other handsets available in the market. The glass back gives a unique look and reflects light in different lighting conditions. What’s more even the sides blend well with the back and follow the same glossy shine.

Moto G6 comes with triple SIM slots you can use 2x nano SIM and a micro SD card all together. Dual VoLTE is not supported on this handset, only one SIM at a time can use VoLTE. Screen is 5.7 inches with 18:9 aspect ratio, supporting full HD+ resolution i.e. 2160 x 1080 pixels. This screen also comes with gorilla glass 3 protection.

The screen size and the handset body / design makes it a perfect handset for those who are looking for a smaller handset that fits in their palm easily and makes it easier to operate with one hand.  Do note that this handset is a bit slippery.

Coming to RAM and ROM there are two variants 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB. The one that I used for the review is the 4GB/64GB variant. Moto G6 is running Stock Android Oreo and packed with all the sensors that you will find on a premium handset – including Gyro and Magnetic.

On the back there is 12MP + 5MP dual cameras and a 16MP camera on the front. Rear camera can shoot in bokeh mode, whereas bokeh mode is missing on the front camera. Picture quality is excellent, quality is really good, night shots looked great, however the edge detection in dual camera mode is not that great check video review to know why.

Apart from this there are some cool features like the spot color option in the camera app, check video. Now this option allows user to select one color and then show only that color in the photo (that too live before it is captured) and the rest is in black and white – looks interesting and you can capture some really cool and unique shots, check samples below. Moto G6 also supports Google lens.

The finger print sensor is on the front and is fast and accurate, there is face unlock option too and that is also decently fast. Handset heat up is under control, max battery temperature I encountered was 38 degrees.

The 3000 mAh non-removable battery takes about 1 hour 30 minutes for a full charge using the fast charger provided and on a full charge you will get up to a day of battery life with mixed usage.
