Well, just like the original, it's a lot of phone for a little cash, though the definition of the latter has shifted more than we'd like. In the end, in the never-ending game of compromise, you can't go wrong with the Moto G6 Plus.

Ultimately, the Moto G6 Plus is an improvement on the G6 in almost every way: it’s faster, has a better screen and a better camera. The thing is, it’s not that any of these were a big issue with the G6 and, yet, the G6 Plus is £50 more expensive.

The Moto G6 Plus delivers a lot of handset for a competitive price. More internal storage would be nice, but at least a MicroSD card slot is available for external expansion. Battery life could be better and the fingerprint sensor is in a very awkward location. The camera is really impressive for a handset at this price, and the same can be said of the hardware styling. Fans of Moto handsets should find plenty to like here.

Well, just like the original, it's a lot of phone for a little cash, though the definition of the latter has shifted more than we'd like. In the end, in the never-ending game of compromise, you can't go wrong with the Moto G6 Plus.

This is Motorola's bread and butter

There's no other way to say it, Motorola still masters the art of the mid-range phone with the Moto G6 Plus. While the standard Moto G6 may strike the ultimate balance of price and capabilities, the G6 Plus is a great example of the complete package you can get for what's still a very affordable $349.

Could well be a mid-range bargain

from Tech Advisor

It might look very similar to the regular G6, and only offer a slightly larger screen, but the G6 Plus impresses in other areas. You’ll namely want to spend the extra money to get a Snapdragon 630 processor but also upgraded specs including a larger battery, better cameras, more RAM and more storage.

Seems to be a great package

from TechRadar

With a larger screen, more powerful internals and extra battery, it seems like the Moto G6 Plus is a no-brainer over the newly launched Moto G6. If you've liked Moto G phones in the past, but want one packed full of impressive specs, you'll like the look and spec of the G6 Plus.
