Moto G6 Play review: All the battery, none of the expense

 

The G6 Play offers a whole lot of goodness for its modest asking price. Its real win is battery life, which goes on and on. However, such capacity

Long-lasting battery is mighty impressive ; Affordable asking price ; Modern design and display ups the quality compared to previous generations

Only 720p panel resolution ; Performance can feel a little slow at times ; Micro-USB port is old fashioned ; Trio of G6 phone options is confounding

Motorola Moto G6 Play review

 

The best sub-£200 phone right now? You betcha

Excellent battery life ; Large, 18:9 screen ; Stylish build for the price

Camera is average ; No waterproofing

A cracking smartphone that we’d happily pay twice as much for

Moto G6 Play review

 

A phone you'll want to play with

Good battery life ; Surprisingly good screen ; Great value

Camera a touch slow ; Mediocre night photos ; Scrolling software bug

The Moto G6 Play is the most basic model in the G6 range but still has plenty going for it, including a long-lasting battery and a decent screen. If you're on a tight budget it's easy to recommend.

Motorola Moto G6 Play review: Return of the King

 

An impressive display, good battery life and decent camera – the Moto G6 Play is another great budget phone from Motorola

Great battery life ; Runs near stock Android ; Big, bright 5.7in display

No Full HD display ; Lacks water- and dust-resistance

Only the camera, which isn’t quite as good as the one on the Moto G5S, might give you pause. Other than this, though, if you’re on a strict £180 budget, the Moto G6 Play is the best phone you can buy right now.

Moto G6 Play

 

Cheaper than the other two G6 phones but with a huge battery and cool design, the Moto G6 Play is far from the runt of the litter – it might even be the best. Here's our full review.

Moto G6 Play review: Cheap but charming

 

More like the Moto G5.5, the G6 Play is still an appealing package

I was a bit sceptical of the Moto G6 Play going into this review. You’re looking at a processor which was budget-friendly two years ago in a package only £50 cheaper than the excellent Moto G6. That didn’t seem a big enough price drop to make it worth...

Motorola Moto G6 Play mobile phone review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Motorola Moto G6 Play is the most affordable mobile phone in a range designed to strike an appealing balance between price and performance. At just £170 is there any way it can pull it off, or does it sacrifice too much in the name of saving money?...

Moto G6 Play review

 

The Moto G6 Play looks far better than its low price tag, and it can last nearly two days.

Beautiful design ; More durable than other glass-body G6 phones ; Great battery life ; Simple, bloat-free software

Camera performs poor in low light ; Somewhat sluggish performance ; Screen isn’t too sharp

The Moto G6 Play doesn’t look like a budget phone and can last two days, but everything else about it is average.

Expert review by : Patrick Holland (cnet.com)

An affordable phone with a huge battery

 

It gets nearly four hours more battery life per charge than the iPhone X and costs one-fifth the price.

The Moto G6 Play's battery is bigger than phones that cost much more money.

In everyday use, the speed is fine, but it got one of the lowest scores in our speed tests this year. The screen is difficult to see in bright sunlight and it lacks waterproofing.

The Moto G6 Play has a long battery life for the cost, but smart buyers would uplevel to the Moto G6 for just a little bit more.
