Motorola is the brand that you can trust blindly when it comes to budget-phones. Since the start of the G and E series, Motorola has been putting out great effort to make amazing phones for the people who do not want to spend that extra dollar.
Today, Motorola enlightened us yet again with their astounding new “G” and “E” series, again taking the name of the ‘Budget King’. The new range of Moto G and Moto E smartphones will sell in between $100 to $300 range. Keep in mind that Motorola never advertises the G and E series as their flagships, The Moto G has been Motorola’s Bestseller until now, and the company says it’s the top seller worldwide in its price range as well.
Moto G6 and G6 Play
The new Moto G line is very interesting and both of the devices are beautiful at first looks. The G6 and G6 Play are very similar looking phones, they both have curved edges on the back and 18:9 displays with very narrow thin bezels on the front. The G6 comes with a very nice Gorilla Glass back, while the Play edition comes with a polymer back glass.
The G6 comes with a 5.7-inch display resolution over 1080p, a Snapdragon 450 processor, 3/4GB of ram and 32/64GB of storage. The G6 also has a USB-C port. It also has dual cameras for portrait mode. However, The G6 Play has a 5.7-inch display as well, but a noticeable drop in the resolution just over 720.
The G6 play only has a single camera with 12-megapixels and a max configuration of 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. The default model comes with 2GB RAM and 16 GB of storage. However, worth mentioning part of the play is the large 4,000mAh battery.
Moto E5 Play and E5 Plus
Then there is a new line up on the ‘E’ side as well, the E5 Play and E5 Plus. Usually, the E line up isn’t as great as the G line, but that’s not the case when it comes to the E5 Plus.
The E5 Plus comes with a 6-inch screen boasting a resolution over 720p. It only sports a single camera and it has the same polymer glass on the back. It has a 5,000mAh battery which is just huge and amazing.
On the other side, the Moto E play looks like the older generation with a plastic body and a 16:9 display. It comes with a 5.2-inch display which is a weak point in my opinion. It also has a small battery for a play phone only at 2,800mAh.
Motorola will most likely launch all of these phones sometime in May or June. The G6 will sell for $249 and the G6 Play will sell for $199 in their default configurations. The pricing for the E5 play and Plus haven’t been revealed yet. They’ll start from the $100’s.
Here is a comparison spec-sheet of all of these models.
