1. DESIGN

Design- the G6 plus is elegant with round edges that are really comfortable in the hand, the phone seems sturdy with a bit of heft and it feels far from fragile, don't drop it in a pool though because there's only splash protection. On the front you'll find a fingerprint reader that doubles as a navigation button, on the back the phone has a double camera setup and Motorola's trademarks circle sticks out. Despite that it doesn't wobble too much when typing on a desk because it's a dead center.

Sadly there's only a single speaker and it doubles as the earpiece, thankfully there's also a headphone jack so you don't have to worry about dongles or Bluetooth.

2. SCREEN

Screen- the 5.9 inch notch free IPS LCD looks great, the bezels are much reduced from the previous generation and the phone sports an 18 by 9 aspect ratio. At 1080p the screen has a good resolution and colors are rich and vibrant.

3. CHIPSET & RAM

Chipset and RAM- the phone sports the Snapdragon 630 a mid-range chipset that's extremely power efficient, some heavier apps even the camera take a few seconds longer to load, but otherwise there's no lag and the added RAM means that you can have a crazy number of apps open without experiencing a slowdown.

4. BATTERY

Battery- the G6 Plus spot 3200 milliamp battery combined with the power efficient chipset it should last a while and the phone supports the quick charge 2.0 when you're out of juice.

5. OREO

Oreo- the G6 plus comes with near stock Android 8.0, except for Outlook, the Dolby audio app and a Moto app which gives you a few extra features, however despite with a clean UI might lead you to believe this phone is not a part of the Android 1 program.

6. DUAL CAMERA SETUP

Cameras- in contrast the Moto G5 plus, the G6 plus has two snappers instead of one, this means the phone now has a portrait mode. Colors are good and there seems to be some added sharpening, unlike on the G6 play the phone has phase detection autofocus which should make it easier to get a clear shot, however the phone struggles with exposure and occasionally distorts straight lines, this is not unusual for a budget device but we will do an in-depth comparison to see how it stacks up against similar devices.

The phone also features 4k video at 30 frames per second, the Moto G5 plus was the best bang for your buck for ages, now that the G6 plus is finally out, how will this new contender fare against its competition?
