G6 Overall Performance - Pros and Cons
Price: GC may not be the best smartphone in the market right now. But for the given price tag, this is the best smartphone in the market in that category. Moto G6 series is also much powerful than the previous Moto G5 series and the fastest G6 Plus.
The phone is fast. Opening Apps and working on it happened without any lags. Animations are fast and switching between in UI produced minor hiccups.
You may find the phone a little slow down when many apps are opened in the background. Snapdragon Qualcomm 430 processor is not the best among the 400 series.
Another disappointment with G6 is the battery life. The battery does last a day or a little more for a regular user. The battery supports turbocharging which is a blessing. The weakest link here is again the processor which is preventing the phone from a better battery life.
