@marques I disagree with your POV on calling a $250 phone a budget phone. I'd call that price point mid-range ($200-$399). FYI Budget price range is $99-$199.

I am from India, and here, this phone costs around 16,000 inr, which isn't inexpensive by any means. You may call it the mid range. I personally found this phone below average. Dont get me wrong, it has a type c post, the best looks at this price point, near stock android etc. , but what lets it down is the battery, of course, and then, sd 450 chipset. Now I know that sd 450 is a good soc, but for smartphones below 10,000 inr or 141 usd. Now we have phone like realme c1 for 7000 inr with sd450, and realme 1 with helio p60 for 11000 inr.

I had a Moto G5 and Bought it bc im a fan of budget phones and also a fan of Motorola phones . Did love the moto G5 but changed over back to the iPhone ( iPhone 6) just cost me 200$ and of the iOS system which is pretty smooth . However I don’t believe in paying for the flagship phones I mean they are amazing but I do find the quality in the moto G series budget phones still and appreciate them considering i am not too much of a heavy user when it comes to social media . So for me it’s perfect 👌 love the moto Phones I cannot see myself getting the new iPhones or galaxy phones and for me that’s fine I will continue getting these phones and for a good price !

Sweet baby jesus why in the hell would someone cover a phone in glass?! What is the first thing that breaks on a phone? Glass. So why (human kind) did we cover the whole phone of it. Also why would someone pay 500 or more on a phone that doesn't have an aux. Also having updates just suffocates these phones into inferiority.

I've watched and read countless reviews on this phone and nobody mentions how good the sound for music is!!! I've been an apple guy since the 3gs came out but a point came where I could no longer afford those phones... Switched to Android a few years ago, been using a galaxy S5 mini and galaxy 7 ever since but the audio quality is shit. Can't even compare to Apple products. This G6 audio is amazing though!! Sounds better than my iPad mini 3!!! Must be that Dolby digital software or something. Battery life is fine for me. Streamed on YouTube all day and battery went from 100% at 10am to 30% at 7pm.

Hey MKBHD, I just got myself a LG G6 from T-Mobile (not paid advertisment and yes it is a locked phone for now) and I got it for $300...for $50 more than that Motorola, the LG destroys it in every single segment, screen, build, quality, camera(s) and even on specs! I'm not calling the Moto a bad phone, but the LG G6 is still top of the line stuff that now has a budget price to it, so I think it should be considered the budget king as of right now.

I had this phone for a week. It wasn't a bad phone. But I took it back when I saw the $399 deal for the Moto Z3 play. The battery pack mod 6in to me worth the extra $200

Mikhail Lawrence (12 days ago)
I have owned the phone for a few months now and it is a really good phone except for one major thing...the camera lens is extremely fragile. I have one of the best cases Amazon offered for this phone (Poetic brand), and the phone slipped out of my hands and i caught it and it hit my wedding ring and the lens cracked, rendering the camera useless. the fact that the camera sticks out from the phone is the issue so its very prone to damage.

Is the screen brighter than the Nexus 6p? And can't you disable that Amazon apps?
Chris Pilot (24 days ago)
Another "negative" about the G6 is that's its simply not an upgrade from the previous Moto model the Moto G5S Plus. Still, I use the G5S Plus and bought my son the G6 (not the Amazon version) and I really like the G6. One note about the Moto g-series cameras, the mediocrity of the images is almost solely due to the Moto Camera 2 app (it has really aggressive post processing which softens all images). Unfortunately the Moto Camera app on the G6 doesn't have a low light mode like the Moto Camera app on the Moto G 5S Plus does. If you use that mode that has much better HDR and a lot less post-processing. If you root the phone, turn on cam2api, and install the Google Camera the image quality is near perfect. Unfortunately the stock ROM on the G6 (and G5S Plus) is 32-bit rather than 64-bit (even Oreo), so you have to use a rather old version of the Google camera (like Nexus 6 era) but it still does a really good job and you get HDR+.

Shiva Ho (24 days ago)
I totally regret buying mine & would NOT recommend it. The Amazon Exclusive version is not Rootable which is a deal breaker for anyone wise enough to know that it's the only way to keep it updated with the latest security patches by installing a custom ROM by developers who are constantly updating their ROMs. The camera takes crappy blurry photos. It also lags quite often. Why would you want a fragile glass back? I also prefer wider screens like on the G4 plus instead of the longer ones which tends to make ignorant people shoot crappy portrait videos which only look cool on the phone its shot on & NOT on anything else where you get a ton of wasted space on the sides. My G3 dual front facing speakers sound great & because its rooted gets the latest version of Android 9 PIE because there are a lot of custom roms for it. Sadly the battery is bulging & pushing the screen out from the phone.

Moto used to be the best with updates. Of course, Google used to own them. Lenovo doesn't seem to care about updates. And when you finally get an update, it's usually just a 6 month old security update.

Helpful review, as always. I'm tempted to ditch my iPhone 6s and return to Moto after a long break, but I remember trying out a G5 in store and loving the One Button Nav, until I found that I couldn't silence the "buzz/vibration/feedback" on the Home Button, every time I used it. Is there a way of turning this off on the G6, does anyone know? Thanks! ;O)

IDK the asus zenfone 3 zoom is awesome, it has a 1080p amoled screen, 5000 mha hour battery, you can get up to 4gb of ram, and two awesome rear cameras for about 200 bucks. The only downside is it can bend a little due to the aluminum.

The Moto G and Play phones are junk. I owned two of them and one is dead and on the other the LCD is going bad. Bought a new iPhone6 for $199. The old iPhones beat the new Motos. That is a fact.

To be more accurate you are seeing why *so many Amazon customers* feel it is worth it. The fact it is worth it to a large pool of buyers stand a priori to your personal review!
David Saintloth (1 month ago)
That said I currently own the G5 plus and think it is basically the perfect smart phone in terms of it's zippiness , ability to multi task reasonably before growing sluggish and consistency of the Android OS (I'm on N waiting on O which as you said seems to be dragging even though Motorola promised it in the pipeline). Additionally, the battery life is pretty impressive with the Android battery optimizations in N. Camera is pretty mediocre and is the only reason I am considering getting a Pixel 2 once the 3 drops and forces hopefully a couple hundred dollar price drop in the 2. The 2 I see as THE perfect smart phone save for the fact it's not in the perfect price range for me...I won't spend more than 300 for a phone again because frankly going forward you'll be able to get Pixel 2 level over all quality for around that price in about a years time. Leaving "flag ships" firmly in the camp of duped enthusiasts who think they need the latest whiz bang features as icing. ;) All that said, I am thinking of getting either another G5 Plus (but this one with the 4Gb ram for better multitasking) or the G6 just as a back up to my current on as the price is so reasonable. We'll see if I can self gift the Pixel 2 to myself at the same time. ;)

What's wrong with a plastic back? If anything, it's superiour to glass or aluminium/steel. - Less prone to impact damage. - Offers better handling properties. - Lower production cost. - More diverse production forms. - Easily replaceable. - Less prone fingerprint/fat/grease traces. If glass is more premium, i wanna go dirt cheap. Plastic is superiour when it comes to case surface, period.
Nick L. (7 days ago)
Yeah no bro plastic is shit. I dropped a bowl on my g5 and it burnt the back casing. Dropped a bowl on my glass back g6, no worries. Not to mention wireless charging and it's looks way nicer. G6 doesn't do wireless charging I'm just sayin, I never seen a plastic back phone with wireless charging.
