My first motorola phone since my star tac. Last tume I buy a motorola. Since it was made by lenovo i was expecting something better. Camera is bad at daylight and awfull at low light environments. Battery is not that good, screen is not good at daylight. Every software update makes it even slower than it originally was. As I read on other reviews here, seems to do things by itself without touching it ( it makes calls or open apps or chrome windows by itself) . If you are searching for a new phone, buy something else.

Had this phone since it first came out and it has proven itself in the following: Mediocre phone at best, slow with lag-time. Good Battery life. Cheap phone for those on a budget. Seeking quality look elsewhere.

Worst cell phone I've ever had (EVER)... Un believably stagnant, updates don't help, battery life is mindbogglingly short and the worst part of all is the phone has been this way sense the fist day I purchased it from the store. The signal, one moment it's normal and within the same moment it's horrible without even moving around literally. It's just a bad phone to put it simple.

I've owned this phone for two years and it was only ever an "ok" phone. It's kinda slow, and battery life was never that great (and it's worse now). The camera is AWFUL... Colors are over-saturated, it's terrible in low light, and there's no image stabilization (one of the reasons I bought the G6 was because the reviews all it said it had a good camera!).

Lately the phone has become glitchy and unresponsive, and the Bluetooth transmitter fails several times a day, and you can't re-connect without rebooting the phone. I can't download apps from the Play store, unless I clear the app memory first (every single time!), and storage won't open anymore (a common problem with this phone).

I can't say I've had any problems with call quality or texts, but the phone frequently makes calls at random, without me even touching it. Sometimes making several calls in a row to the same number, annoying friends and associates.

Since these phones are made by Lenovo, I expected better quality. I also expected to get more than two years of use out of it, but I guess these phones are designed to start failing after a couple of years. I had a OnePlus One before this, and used it for four years, and even though it was a much older phone, switching to the G6 felt like a downgrade.

This is the first Motorola phone I've ever owned, and I will NOT be buying another one.

I've had a Moto G6 for 2 years. Battery now lasting 1 day. USB-C port no longer holds onto a cable very well, easily becoming disconnected.

This will be my last motorola phone after using then since the motorola G3. I've had the phone less than a year and it is painfully slow. It randomly shuts off if I have less than 50% battery, the touchscreen at the top of the phone stopped responding to input, except when I swipe for notifications. I dropped the phone with the case on it and the entire thing front and back shattered after having it for a single day. My motorola G5 plus had an aluminun back and it got through my major car accident with no damage. This is suppose to be more durable, what?
The worst part? I upgraded to this from the G5 plus because that phone wasn't recieving calls. Some calls it would just send straight to voicemail without alerting me at all, and some texts I would recieve DAYS later. Both my carrier and motorola had stated this was an unresolved issue with that phone that people had. and encouraged me to switch or upgrade to something newer. Well, I switched and am having THE SAME ISSUE, 6 months after getting the phone. If it's not going to perform its basic function as a phone it's basically useless and i'm very sad to leave motorola but I have no choice.

I've had a Moto G6 for years and I'm still using it. It still works as good as it did when I first got it and the battery life has not declined at all. The camera quality is very good for a budget phone. I have had no problems with Android updates (currently using Android version 9). I have never had a dropped call. No problems with wi-fi. GPS works great. Never has any problems getting and maintaining a signal. Overall, it's a fantastic phone for the price.

Had one since March of 2019. Buggiest damn phone I've ever owned. Missed calls, dropped calls, won't even ring if I don't clear caches weekly, just sends calls direct to VM. Can't wait for my contract to be up so I can get something else. Two BIG thumbs down.

the battery just blue up the back of my phone came off

Jefe Muga, 04 Sep 2020why is everyone hating on this phone? it was a GREAT budget... moreIs a good phone - in my opinion. I started to like it after using. At the beginning I didn`t like it too much, was too "heavy" for me. And I didn`t trust v.much this company even I had not a Moto since the phones are made now by a Lenovo division. And with some Lenovo phones and tablet sometimes I had real problems incl. a miserable almost non-existent support. But seems to be solid, not freezing and not bad looking with some Moto features I really like. Everyone to his taste.

Spike Jones, 05 Jul 2020I have had 3 Motorola phones. The one I'm getting rid... moretoo bad about your experience. You came to the right site to look, GSM Arena is one of the best!

why is everyone hating on this phone? it was a GREAT budget phone for $250 USD back in 2018. That was 1/4 of the price that flagships were asking for in that year. For that low price you got glass all around, stock android, a decent fingerprint sensor, a decent camera, a 3000mAh battery that could last this phone 1 full day no problem. What did you want for that price? I used it for 2 full years and then passed it on to my teenager who is still using it now, no problem. I got my wife the Moto G7, but I feel that the Moto G6 was the best the G series had to offer. all the other ones felt like more of a compromise. still good budget phones but the G6 just felt like you got a steal of a deal. that's my two cents.

Absolutely HATE the obnoxious boot up screen. It feels like some 5 year old thought of it with all the obnoxiously bright neon colors flashing in succession. The worst part is that boot splash is unskipable!
