Based on the first smartphone in the line, the Motorola G series has been strengthened since 2013, setting a new level for affordable devices, and sales have increased by match.
The company’s Moto G line aims to make high-end smartphones less expensive along with mind-boggling features that you would typically expect from a flagship device. It is, however, never going to be the same experience as purchasing a genuinely high-end phone, but without spending extra bucks, it does allow you to taste these top-end characteristics. In short, Motorola announced Moto G6 UK with an aspect ratio of 18:9 that sounds similar to the likes of iPhone XS and Galaxy S9. Most interestingly, high-end OnePlus 6T comes with the same aspect ratio too.
We have spent plentiful hours and gathered everything in our Moto G6 Review UK, including its official release date and pricing details. So, let’s keep going!
Release Date and Pricing:
The official Moto G6 release date UK was somewhere back in April 2018, and since then it’s shining on shelves as an excellent budget-friendly smartphone. Not only in the UK, but it’s also available in every corner of the country, and one can get his/her hands with immediate effects.
As for Moto G6 Price UK, it set users back a little more compared to Moto G5 and G5S – £220. It’s, however, still a reasonable price but not in the case when it comes to its key rival Honor 9 Lite which goes for only £199.
Since its launch, Moto G6 price has dropped significantly, and there are a plethora of online stores, i.e., Amazon.co.uk, Clove.co.uk, and Argos.co.uk that are offering Moto G6 Best Price UK for the audience. One can pick it up in a choice of four dazzling colours – Deep Indigo, Silver, Blush, and Black.

Let’s instantly get that out of the manner. The Moto G6 is readily one of the most popular smartphones in this price range. This brilliant frame is entirely made of Gorilla Glass 3 with smart outcomes. Of course, the G6 collects gray prints and grimes all day, just like all glass smartphones. Fortunately, the dark appearance of this Deep Indigo model masks smudges quite well. You can also pick up your phone here in the UK in several different colours, i.e., Black, Blush, Silver, and Deep Indigo.
Screen and Media:
The G Series of Motorola has never has deceived in the area of display technology, and fortunately, Moto G6 is also not disappointed. The 5.7-inches IPS panel on a moto phone is the first to rock the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio, as mentioned above. It is ideal for movie playback, with decreased letterboxing. Despite the generous size, Full HD+ resolution images are entirely crisp. The default “lively” mode really gives colors pop. If you prefer more realistic views instead, you can change that in the display settings.
The G6 is sporting a couple of camera lenses on the backside just like Moto X4 and G5s Plus. A 5MP snapper supports the 12MP primary shooter. It does not give an optical zoom or a wide-angle view of the globe – it merely allows the Portrait mode of Motorola to achieve a correct focus depth. The full HD video is capable of being recorded at 60 frames per second too, and there are also a few funky features – such as Spot color mode.
The front side of the handset is covered by an 8MP camera that can assist you in selfies and video calls and most important of all. It’s capable enough to record 1080p videos at 30fps.
Qualcomm’s 450 Snapdragon chipset is built into the Moto G6 and is an inexpensive platform that was introduced nearly a year ago. 3GB RAM supports the beast, and the result is very satisfactory. While the Moto G5s Plus last year still beats the device in benchmarking scoring, but you will only see occasional crash and freeze. Without too much stuttering, you can multiple tasks using a divided screen mode.
If you want your game on, the Moto G6 should be enough, too. The games like PUBG can be played well at the low level of detail with just the unusual missed frame. Obviously, it’s recommended to check out the Plus model, which will provide smoother output, when you’re playing a lot. As for storage, Moto G6 64GB UK is available with an option to take it to the next level with a microSD card.
It has better battery life. On an entire charge, the Moto G6 can last a few hours using a camera and a lot of video streaming and gaming. If you’re a bit reserved, the G6 lasts up to two days before it needs to be plugged in. And the G6 will back up energy in no moment at all thanks to its Motorola’s TurboCharge tech on the board. Just plug it for an hour and this 3000mAh battery will be fully filled.
