I replaced my iPhone 7 with this Moto G6 and couldn't be happier with the purchase. People told me to keep the iPhone because of all its features, but I've found there are no features I'm missing with the G6. The Moto provides everything I want and need in a phone plus more. It's every bit as fast as the iPhone, intuitive, and easy to live with. Colors and image crispness are excellent for its price class, and indistinguishable from the iPhone 7 in every day use. The battery life is excellent, usually ending the day with 60%+ charge after being on and used for the past 15 hours. The only thing it lacks is snob appeal, so don't buy it if that is what's important to you. If you want a rugged, dependable, and fast phone with all the features you can possibly need at a reasonable price, this is an excellent option.

This phone is very fast. No big frills, but everything you need is there. If you're wanting to keep up with the crowd, look elsewhere. There aren't any useless gadgets or gizmos on this phone. Just practical, functional features.

I've recommended this phone to about a dozen people in just a few weeks. I'm very happy with it.

I bought this phone to replace an LG G5 that I hated. (The LG was the first non-Moto phone I had purchased.) This phone is very capable and fast. Does everything I need. I am one that could give a rat's butt about the camera. I make phone call's (duh) , text, use maps, navigation, banking, etc. and an occasional game of solitaire. The phone does these exceptionally well. (Yes it takes a very good picture also) The purchase was easy and fast through Amazon. I backed up the G5 using Google. I swapped the sim (Verizon) from the G5 to the G6, turned it on. It updated, restored my apps and data. I haven't looked back. Excellent value for the money! I will recommend to my family and friends. (The G5 to people I don't like)

This phone is everything you need and nothing you don't. Performance is good enough for ususal 2 items phone tasks like video playback and social media scrolling. Screen isn't flagship good but plenty nice for those who would consider buying a phone of this price range in the first place. Speaker is nice and loud and sounds better than I thought it would. It drives headphones ok. If you have a high end set, you will be able to tell the DAC isn't as good as something like my old HTC 10, but few devices are, let alone this reasonably priced phone but it does performance admirably(and you actually get a headphone jack). Mid tear phones use to be garbage, but that time has passed with devices like this one. As good as this device is I no longer feel the need to buy very high end phones to enure I get a good experience. You could buy 4 of these or more for the cost of a flagship phone, but really your getting about 80% of that experience for 1/4 the price. The only thing I really dislike about it is that it's made of glass. An irresponsible decision by the industry as a whole and not really this device alone.

Extended screen size is nice, display quality is excellent, sound is good for calls (I never listen to music or video straight from my phone speaker so can't comment on that), and no problems connecting to anything (cell, wifi, bluetooth). All glass body looks nice, but I bought a protective case because I'm human and will drop my phone and don't want a shattered glass phone. Now for the bad: as others have noted, the battery runs down very fast - much faster than my moto G4 which I upgraded from. Even when not watching videos and with only light to moderate use the power drains away. The turbo charger is fast which helps, but they definitely should have put a larger capacity battery into this phone. Very poor move Lenovo.

Much, much better battery life on the two Moto G6s we bought compared to our two Samsung S7s that we replaced. Terrific cost/benefit proposition for our normal use of emails, some videos, web use, many apps, and pictures. Pretty fast. Screen clarity and colors are good too. Phone call voice quality and speakerphone are excellent. Works fine on T-Mobile. Thanks, Motorola...

My wife didn't check the pockets before doing laundry and tossed my jeans with my Moto E4 into the front loader washing machine. By the time we figured out it was missing, the load was 35 minutes into the cycle and it had been tossed around pretty good in soapy water. A colleague at work said they had salvaged his son's phone after a similar mishap, so I got out all the desiccant I could find and put the phone and the battery into a small tupperware container. Unfortunately, or may fortunately, it didn't work.

I almost bought the same exact phone even though now it was over $100 and I think I got the old one for $80 or something. Then I started to read the reviews about the G6 and was quickly convinced to try this model instead. It solves some of the shortcomings of the old phone. While the camera is not exactly on par with the $800+ phones, it's light years better than the 5MP on the old E4. And I have seen claims that the G6 can do wireless calling, although I haven't tested it yet. We need this when we go to the lake and there's no cell phone towers, but there is high speed internet.

Only had it for a few days, but so far, no complaints. I leave it plugged in most of the day at work, so battery hasn't been below 50%, but I have a strong feeling, that with my limited usage, it would last for way more than a day, maybe two. What was amazing and scary all at the same time was that after I plugged it in and logged into my Google account, all of my apps came down and were put on the same screen and everything. I don't know who to thank for that, probably the Google Gods who are watching my every movement and capturing it to disk. It didn't bring over passwords and the like, so there was still a very modest amount of setup to do to get all my apps working again.

The phone is a little longer than the E4, but not any wider. I guess that's the latest trend, I see others with long skinny phones. It is very slippery though and I'm going to take the advice of others and get a case, even though I usually don't. Motorola makes great hardware IMO and I am still learning how to use the "actions" to turn on the camera and flashlight and all of that, so the phone has plenty of features.

It is very fast, the screen resolution is great, it's way, way better than the E4 and came in at a little over $200 with tax. I was shocked when I saw that most Samsungs and iPhones are approaching $1,000 if you want to buy them outright and I really don't care for Verizon's pay as you go monthly plans. The price is the same either way, but I guess if I own it I try to take care of it better (by not leaving it in my pants pocket by the washing machine?). Perhaps this is why Apple's phone sales are down? If the devices cost a grand, people will not be very excited about replacing them every 2 years!

UPDATE: As far as quick charging, I finally ran the battery down to 8%, plugged it into the charger and it was at 100% in just under an hour and half.

For the overall quality and value for this phone, I agree with what most Youtube reviews and online reviews say: This is a pretty good phone for the price. If you wait for promos, you can get this at (or under) $200.

Some nuances I'd like to point out, which are very specific for my case coming from the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3, and thus are not mentioned on many reviews:
1. I really appreciated Alcatel's additional SMS handling options, specifically the "Mark as unread" feature. I had assumed this was an Android feature. But, it doesn't look like Oreo, or Motorola g6, has it.
2. Similarly, I liked Alcatel's "Pin to top" feature for certain contacts, when inside my messages list. I can't find this feature with the G6.
3. I wish that the flashlight could be a toggle-able feature that did not require enabling the Moto gestures. If there were simply a button I could press (rather than have to do the chop), I'd rather do that.
4. Probably the biggest one of all: Apparently, the front tiny LED cannot be used to indicate when a message/email/notification has arrived! This has been mind boggling to me.

When my beloved by aging Moto G4 began needing a second daily recharge for heavier use and seemed to run hot more frequently than in the past, I decided to take advantage of a recent sale and purchased a Moto G6. It is a solid phone with seemingly better battery life and faster functioning out of the box that the G4. The things I most appreciated abuot the older phone remain - bright screen, clear resolution and snappy response. Transfer of my Android database was fairly complete. Some apps had to re-installed manually. One game "Free Flow" did not transfer its history when re-in stalled, in part because the new Moto G6 was pure Moto. The G4 had was purchased as an Amazon Prime phone. Day to day operation is very similar overall. One quibble: The Moto G6 reversed the positioning of the power and volume buttons on the right side of the phone. The power button is now on the bottom of the three button stack. Not intuitive. Several weeks out I'm still getting used to that. The camera is improved and low light photos are less grainy. The volume seems a bit brighter. Calls are clear. Blocking numbers from spam calls is simple. Turbo charging seems about 25% faster. With my normal use (messaging, occasional calls and checking news and weather, GPS for trips to new locations) I usually can go a day and a half before a recharge becomes essential.
The other issues with the phone lie in the transition from Android 7 (Nougat) to Android 8 (Oreo). I had to manually set my notifications and other preferences as they did not transfer. The notification tone Pollux was not available on Android 8. I had to download it manually. I do not care for the smaller round icons and there is no way within the settings to change their appearance. Also some of the app widgets do not center on the screen and there appears no way to adjust them. On the plus side, app updates seem to process much faster. Messaging is improved as well.
To sum up: I love the phone overall - it's light, well-built and a great value for the money. I'm still getting used to Android 8 and the button reconfiguration, but I would buy it again.

For $200, you cannot go wrong with this phone. It is well built and feels solid. Looks really premium.

It performs very well for a $200 phone. Enough RAM and CPU power to make everyday use very smooth and quick to respond.

The reason I gave it 4 stars is I am not sure this will get Android 9. This runs Android 8, and mainstream is now 8.1 which this still has not updated to.

This is an easy recommendation for the price/performance you get.
