Moto G6 Hands-On: Amazing What You Get for Just $250

Moto G6

Value is the one and only name of the game for the Moto G6 Play.

While everybody was eagerly waiting for the launch of the new Moto G6-series, Lenovo-owned Motorola has done better than our expectation and has also launched the Moto E5 and Moto E5 Plus, along with the Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus, and Moto G6 Play smartphone, in an event in Brazil.

We do, however, have prices for the Moto G6 and G6 Play. Motorola designed these phones to be full-day phones without question, and they also come with TurboPower chargers for quick top-ups when you need it. We'll update as soon as we know more.

Motorola has confirmed it will be introducing a new software beta program. The Android 8 phones will launch first in its biggest markets in Latin America before gradually reaching the US, Europe and elsewhere. The G6 Play does start at £169, however, so there is still an option at that price point. The Max Vision screen also provides "expansive views", but naturally, with lower HD+ resolution. It really feels like a refreshed Moto E4, not a part of the E5 family. I'll be testing out the Moto G6's camera when I get my hands on a review unit.

Everything we know about hero Southwest pilot Tammie Jo Shults
Air traffic control cleared her to land, and the plane was immediately met with medical and emergency crews after touching down. Shults toiled for a year until a recruiter processed her Navy application. "My brother says she's the best pilot he knows".

It's a little narrower than you'd expect for a 6-inch phone, because it's using the now-trendy 2:1 aspect ratio first popularized by LG's G6. However, if you don't want to wait, you can check for the update manually by heading over to the Settings System updates menu. Instead, we played around with the things at an event in New York City, where it's now 40 degrees in mid-April. Respectively, they can be configured with up to 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. And it keeps getting better, instantly lock or unlock your phone with the multifunctional fingerprint reader. And it'll have the right bands for whatever carrier orders it. As with nearly every Motorola Android phone, it runs as close-to-stock Android as you'll find on a non-Google phone.

What's the downside? That screen is not very sharp, and also not very bright.

It all comes down to the huge 5,000mAh battery in the Moto E5 Plus. However, the E5 has a 5.7-inch display versus 5.2 on the Play.

It may be the runt of the range (except in the USA, which gets the Moto E5 Play instead), but the Moto E5 still packs a sizeable 5.7-inch display with a tall 18:9 aspect ratio display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 13MP rear camera, microSD slot and a rear facing fingerprint scanner. To the front there is a 5 MP camera with an LED flash.

OPEC's new price hawk Saudi Arabia seeks oil as high as $100
US gasoline demand surged to a record high of 9.9 MMbbl a day before the summer driving season when consumption typically peaks. Rocket attacks by rebels in Yemen on top oil exporter Saudi Arabia have also contributed to oil's geopolitical risk premium .

In summary: There is nothing about the Moto E5 line that differentiates it from any other decent, low-cost phone. The phone runs Android 8.0 Oreo. The positioning of the camera on the new G6 phones solves this, and means you can take more stable pics. The lower-end G6 Play will cost $199, and the regular G6 (shown above) will cost $249. They have the speed and power of Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processors and run Android™ 8.0 Oreo™.

There is a 2800 mAh battery is in the phone.

The Moto E5 has a USB Type-C port which can be used to charge the massive 4000 mAh battery.

Motorola does add a few extra features in its version of Android running on the Moto G6, like gestures that act as shortcuts for the camera and flashlight.
