Taking the top spot in Motorola’s 2018 G-Series lineup, the G6 Plus offers everything reviewers loved about the standard G6 and adds a little more to the experience. Of course, this also adds to the price.
Key differences include:
- A faster octa-core 2.2Ghz Snapdragon 630 processor with 4 to 6GB of RAM
- An increased 32 to 64GB of internal storage
- A slightly larger 5.9-inch display
- 4K video capture
- A larger 3200mAh battery
Since the screen is the same resolution as the regular G6, you technically lose a small amount of clarity on paper. However, reviewers still found display sharp at 409 pixels-per-inch.
The increased processor speed and RAM makes multitasking and heavy gaming more fluid, but it’s still not a flagship in terms of performance. However, for most users, it can keep up with most common tasks as long as you don’t mind apps taking a little longer to load.
The cameras in the G6 Plus are nearly identical to the G6, but reviewers found it handled complex lighting and low-lighting better than the other two models. Still, they still wouldn’t recommend the camera and considered it the weakest part of the package.
If you’re looking for a budget-friendly phone that will age gracefully, the G6 Plus is the best of the three new models. However, for many reviewers, the standard G6 was the sweet spot in terms of overall value.
