I have been using the Moto G6 some time now and this is one phone I can say straight off is an excellent device for the money and would have no issue reccomending it to anyone. It has been on of my daily drivers some time now and I also use it for video footage on my You Tube channel and in this regard it does great and also takes great images to boot.

Build quality is also excellent here all over and it feels solid in the hand and is at that sweet spot for phone size but this varies per person. Two security factors here built in are face unlock and also fingerprint scanner which both work well. In fact this device has not crashed on me once since I started using it and thats saying something.

NFC is built in here too which is a welcome feature for payments here in Ireland many phones lack this feature. Also there is a built in radio which again is something many phones leave out due to other services and apps now available and all you need to do to activate that is insert headphones.

The G6 has good sounding speakers too in general and again they are sampled in other videos I have posted online so good sound is to be had there. The screen is a bit darker than other devices but overall good viewing pleasure is there for consuming media. You get a full HD display with a 5.7 inch screen with bezels that are not too much in the way despite bezzeless being the new go to feature these days.

Multitasking on this phone is also swift and with having multiple apps open at any given time switching between them was no issue and little or no lag to be found running apps like WordPress You Tube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and emails and so on which is my typical daily usage here and all worked smoothly. For gaming its also strong and even with some heavy titles it brezzed through them. Given I am not much of a gamer on mobile I do mess around with them from time to time or just something to do whilst waiting so I would not store many on the device anyway.

Specs –  Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 – 4GB, 64GB, microSD – 5.7 inches IPS LCD, 1080 x 2160  – 424 ppi Rear Camera: 12.0 + 5.0 MP – Front Camera: 8.0MP – Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n –  Wi-Fi Direct – hotspot – Bluetooth 4.2 – 3000 mAh battery – Android 8.0 out of box.

CONS – No wireless charging – Not waterproof.

Given the trend of 1000 euro smartphones is continuing to grow I think it will not be long before that trend buckles as phones costing half or less are now hitting the streets and provide more than enough without the need to fork out on such. This phone is certainly one of them a if you are on a budget this is the one to look at first.
