The new Lenovo G6 is the middle child between the 3 siblings of Motorola’s mid-range phones: it has a 5.5-inch Full HD+ display (2,280×1,080 pixels) and an 18:9 screen ratio, which is now common on most smartphones. It doesn’t make the jump to a borderless display, but still conserves the standard design made of frames and bezels, albeit small ones. The back is made of 3D Glass, highlighted by a metal trim in the frame: all in all a great leap forward in comparison to the materials used on the G5S.

The classic design lets you keep the home key under the screen equipped with a fingerprint reader, even though the main unlock method is face unlock using the front-facing camera on top.

Under the shell, we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, with an Adreno 506 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal memory, expandable via microSD. It may look like a step backward from the Moto G5S (which had a Snapdragon 625) but the Ram increase will offset the loss in CPU clock speed and you shouldn’t notice any difference in day-to-day use.

Photographically speaking, the Moto G6 has a dual rear camera consisting of a 12-megapixel main sensor and a 5-megapixel monochrome secondary sensor with an LED flash and a focal aperture of f/1.6, able to record Full HD video at 60 fps. The Camera app comes equipped with many Smart features like being able to detect the different items within the frame and change the settings accordingly.

The rest of the spec sheet is standard: we have a 3,000mAh battery with TurboPower, a USB Type-C port (for the first time on the Moto G series), and then there is also Bluetooth 4.1 and dual-band WiFi. The only thing really missing is NFC.
