According to Digital Trends, the release of Moto G6 series marks the addition of new members to Motorola's lower-priced smartphone lineup. However, the Moto G series has three different models: Moto G6, G6 Plus and G6 Play. How about the three new models? This blog will give a detailed analysis of the three mobile phones.

Moto G6 vs G6 Plus vs G6 Play Display


The Moto G6 series does not adopt the popular notch, but it still looks modern and feel compact. Moto G6, Moto G6 Play, and Moto G6 Plus are basically the same in design. The front is an ultra-tall 18:9 screen and the rear has a center-mounted spherical camera, with volume buttons and power button on the right of each cell phone. However, there is a notable difference between the three models. The G6 and G6 Plus have a physical Home button, screen navigation keys, but the Moto G6 game has a virtual Home key and a rear-facing fingerprint scanner.

Moto G6: 32GB(3/4GB RAM)
Moto G6 Play: 32GB(3GB RAM)
Moto G6 Plus: 32GB(4/6GB RAM)


Moto G6 Series


The Moto G6 Plus features a Snapdragon 630 CPU and 4/6GB of RAM. The Moto G6 has a Snapdragon 450 CPU and 3/4GB of RAM. And the Moto G6 Play has a Snapdragon 430 CPU and 3GB of RAM. All three come with 32GB of expandable internal storage (via microSD). Moto G6, Moto G6 Play and Moto G6 Plus are not flagship products so they will not be equipped with ultra-power processors. Moto G6 Plus is the most powerful of the bunch.


Moto G6 vs Moto G6 Plus vs Moto G6 Play: Camera


Moto G6: 12MP + 5MP dual rear cameras with f/1.8 aperture; 8MP front-facing camera (16MP capable for low-light)
Moto G6 Play: 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture; 8MP front-facing camera;
Moto G6 Plus: 12MP + 5MP dual rear cameras with f/1.7 aperture and dual autofocus pixels; 8MP front-facing camera (16MP capable for low-light)


Moto G6 Camera


Motorola also pays more attention to camera experience than previous generations. A new Smart Camera mode is added to G6 serial, which can identify objects and landmarks.


Among the trios, G6 and G6 Plus is equipped with dual cameras - a main 12MP sensor with a f/1.8 lens and an auxiliary 5MP sensor to facilitate vertical screen mode for Moto G6, and a main 12MP sensor with wider f/1.7 aperture lens and 5MP sensor for G6 Plus. The G6 Play offers a basic 13 MP shooter with f/2.0 lens.


Moto G6 vs Moto G6 Plus vs Moto G6 Play: Battery


Moto G6: 3000mAh
Moto G6 Play: 4000mAh
Moto G6 Plus: 3200mAh


Moto G6 Battery


Although G6 Play is the most basic model, its battery capacity is the largest. Moreover, its power processor is the lowest, which is undoubtedly the most durable of the three G6 models.


While G6 Play sticks with a Micro-USB connection, G6 and G6 Plus use USB Type-C. None of the three provides wireless charging, but they all support Moto TurboPower fast-charging.


Moto G6 vs Moto G6 Plus vs Moto G6 Play: Price


Moto G6: £219 (€249)
The Moto G6 Plus: £269 (€299).
The Moto G6 Play: £169 (€199).


The Moto G6 Plus isn't planned for the American market, but The Moto G6 Play and Moto G6 will be available in almost every market that Motorola operates, including the U.S. and Canada. The price will be a $199 price for the G6 Play and $249 for the G6 stateside.



There are so many great budget phones to choose from, and Motorola has some stiff competition. Overall, compared with the rough and basic design of the old G series smartphones, the release of the Moto G6, G6 Plus, and G6 Play shows its understanding of the current market. These phones provide all the functions that are most needed, including beckoning prices, beautifully attractive design.
