    Moto G6 specs and efficiency 

    This is one other space the place the three handsets are set to vary broadly too. It is necessary to recollect the Moto G6 vary is about getting as a lot spec in a cellphone for an reasonably priced worth, so this does not characteristic any prime notch processing energy.

    Essentially the most highly effective is the Moto G6 Plus that comes with a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset inside and we have seen this chipset carry out effectively in handsets just like the Sony Xperia XA2

    Some markets may have entry to a 6GB of RAM model with 64GB of storage, however we do not at present know the place that’ll land.

    It is extra seemingly you’ll purchase the 4GB RAM model with 64GB of storage or the 3GB RAM with 32GB of storage. We do not count on you will want 6GB of RAM inside your Moto G6 Plus to get passable energy.

    Subsequent up is the Moto G6 with a Snapdragon 450 chipset inside, which is similar tech contained in the newly introduced Honor 7C. This would possibly not be as snappy because the Plus variant, however we hope it’s going to nonetheless maintain its floor.

    That comes with the selection of 4GB RAM with 64GB of storage, or you’ll be able to drop right down to 3GB RAM with 32GB of storage for a barely cheaper price.

    Lastly there’s the Moto G6 Play, which would be the weakest of the three handsets however we nonetheless count on to see some appropriate efficiency from its Snapdragon 430 chipset. We favored how that carried out on final yr’s Nokia 6, so we have go excessive hopes for the way it’ll work within the G6 Play.

    You are extra restricted in your selection of RAM and storage right here although with the 2 choices being 32GB inside with 3GB of RAM or a measly 16GB of storage with 2GB RAM.

    We expect this may occasionally imply the Moto G6 Play can be attempting to duplicate the battery life we have seen on handsets just like the Moto E4 Plus the place it could last as long as two complete days from a single cost. We’ll have to attend till we get these handsets in for full evaluation to know for certain.
