What's so great about the Motorola G6 Plus and Play?
Moto G6

The Motorola G6 Play and the Motorola G6 Plus are now available to pre-order. And we have to say, we absolutely love them. To put it in a nutshell, they offer a good screen, a smooth interface, smart looks – oh, and an affordable price, which always helps.

So those are the headlines, but let’s delve a little deeper into what makes the Moto something of a go-to.

Hey, good looking

The first thing you see with any new phone is what it actually looks like. Obvious, really. And we’re pleased to report that the Motorola G6 Plus and Play are real looker. You can get both in blue, Plus in silver, or Play in gold. And you’ll notice straight away that the screen is a knockout.

The Motorola G6 Plus has a 5.9-inch HD+ edge to edge display. The Play is slightly smaller, at 5.7 inches, but is still edge to edge, so your videos and photos will look frankly awesome.

The Motorola G6 Plus has a 3D glass back for that premium feel, reflecting the light and giving you a different look from every angle.

The Plus also has a water-repellent coating to protect your phone from the elements, while both the Play and the Plus have super-tough Corning Gorilla Glass. It’s not called gorilla for nothing – it’s strong alright – and will keep your shiny new phone shiny for longer - scratch-free and in great shape.

Get snap happy

The Motorola G6 Plus’s cameras have some serious brains. For example, if you’re on holiday and want to know what landmark you’re looking at, just point and shoot, and you’ll get the info in a trice. Also, there’s Dual Autofocus Pixel technology which lets you focus in an instant, and you’ll get great pictures in low light thanks to the large aperture. See, told you it’s clever.

Selfie fans will love the face filters and animations, and an ultra wide-angle group selfie mode means everyone can get in the shot – no more FOMO.

The 13MP main camera on the Motorola G6 Play is also pretty fast and furious, able to focus as fast as you do, so you can take great shots with no fuss. And is it smart? You bet. The camera automatically takes multiple shots and recommends the best one to keep. Pretty impressive, eh?

What’s in store?

The Plus has 64GB internal store, while the Play has 32GB. So, there’s plenty of room to keep all of those all-important memories.

Speed up

One of the big differences between the Motorola G6 Plus and the Motorola G6 Play is the processing speed. The Motorola G6 Play is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 1.4 GHz octa-core processor, giving you all the speed you need. You’ll be able to run your biggest apps without slowing down, enjoy games and videos without annoying stutters, and browse the web or stream music on 4G.

But the Plus is lightning quick, powered by an unbelievably fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 2.2 GHz octa-core – fast just got super fast.

Fastest finger first

The clever fingerprint reader does more than just unlock your phone. With the free Moto Key app, you can access your favourite password-secured apps with a simple press of your finger on both the Play and the Plus.

Keep going all day

The Motorola G6 Plus’s 3200 mAh battery will last the day, with a similar - if not better - performance from the Play. And when it’s time to recharge, the TurboPower charger gives you hours of power in just minutes.

What’s the verdict?

We reckon you’ll love either of these phones - we certainly did.

With the Motorola G6 Play’s amazing battery life, you’re free to do more. Whether you like to stream music, binge-watch TV shows or share photos, you can do all this, with no need recharge. And when it comes to the Plus, you can’t really look beyond that incredible screen, and bags of storage is always handy.
