Interestingly, Motorola has followed the same trend as Moto G6 series in this Moto E5 series too. Other common features are the reliance on Qualcomm processors, new "AI experiences", and Android Oreo.

RAM: The Moto G6 Play comes with 2GB and 3GB RAM options.

The Moto E5 Plus has a 6-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution. "It has a 5.7-inch screen dubbed an edge-to-edge 5.7" HD+ Max Vision display.

Processor: Starting with the premium phone, the Moto G6 Plus is the most powerful phone, and is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 630 processor with Adreno 508 GPU. The smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 450 processor coupled with 3GB/4GB of RAM. Moto G6 Plus has launched with a price tag of $370 which is approximately Rs 25,000.

It's worth mentioning that the Moto G6 Plus is an improved version of the Moto G5S Plus if you look at it more closely, since numerous features present in the new model were either inherited or optimized from the device's predecessor, but in many ways a comparison to the Moto G5S Plus seems unfair.


Would you have preferred the Moto G6 to run on Android One? The Moto G6 Play does not have this. The G6, slightly confusingly, comes in three variants. Memory is 2GB RAM / 16GB storage or 3GB RAM / 32GB storage. The dual sensor delivers features known to users of Moto Z2 Force, X4 and G5S Plus, such as photos with blurred backgrounds (bokeh mode). However, the dual camera has become a privilege only for older smartphone models this line. It features a combination of 12 Megapixel + 5 Megapixel of sensors.

For the photography, Moto E5 Plus features a 12-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera which is an huge 5,000mAh battery and runs Android 8.0 Oreo out-of-the-box. All the three Moto E5 models sport selfie flash and a fingerprint sensor embedded in the Motorola logo on the back.

For imaging, there is a 12-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, laser autofocus and phase-detection autofocus (PDAF), and LED flash.

Display: 5.7-inch, Full HD+ resolution (2160 x 1080 pixels), 18:9 aspect ratio, Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The device runs on a 3000mAh battery with a USB Type-C port for charging.

Motorola has moved onto USB-C which is good to see and there's still a headphones jack which we're over the moon about.


Also, it will be powered by a 5000 mAh battery. The phone features traditional micro-USB port. Other features include 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, and 3.5mm Audio jack.

For fast unlock and good security the G6 includes a front mounted fingerprint reader, built into the home button, and you can use Face Unlock. As for the prices, the Moto G6, Moto G6 Plus and Moto G6 Play cost euro 250, euro 300 and euro 200, respectively.

All the devices come with 3D display which offers rich graphical interface to explore things in full 3D view. A single charge will give you a maximum of 36 hours on the device.

Motorola finally launched the long-time rumoured Moto G6 series phones on Thursday at an event in Brazil. Latin America and North America markets will get the devices after a couple of months. The handset was launched at €299, which roughly translates to around Rs 24,000. Moto G6 will have a price of $249, which is around Rs 16,000 plus on conversion. Color variants Deep Indigo and Flash Gray.
