My old Moto G phone had been acting up for a few months. My trusty phone could no longer handle more demanding apps. My contacts were displaying two screens on top of each other.
Also, our point-and-shoot camera died, so I decided the time was right. I upgraded my Android phone to have a more capable phone and to replace our camera as well. I decided on the Moto G6.
I’m writing a review in case any of you are looking for a new Android phone. My research and recommendation could save you some time.
Moto G6 Review
This phone has a slot for a micro SD card. I bought a 64 GB phone; it’s got enough capacity without the card. I don’t do gaming or watch videos. I do want to use the phone for recording audio and video. I’m going to wait and see before I decide if I need the card.
I like the fingerprint reader to open the phone. I tried the split screen view, which is a nice feature. Digital Trends has a helpful article explaining more features: Here are Moto G6 tips and tricks to help you master your new phone.
Follow the link for the camera features, such as:
- Selective focus
- Low light
- Google Photos storage
- Google Lens search by image
- Text recognition
- and more
I’m looking forward to trying the selective focus and the low light settings.
I liked the case I had for my old Motorola phone, so I was happy to find the same OEAGO design and for only about $4. I like the way it protects the camera and has a good gripping surface.
I’ve always used T-Mobile, so I needed a phone that was compatible. (Yes, this phone works with the corporate T-mobile plan.)
This phone is also compatible with Verizon.

- For years, I had the pay-as-you-go plan with T-Mobile because I used our landline more than I used my cell phone. The landline was becoming very expensive, so we said goodbye to that old number. (We don’t miss all the spammy calls we were receiving.) I still recommend the pay-as-you-go plan if you don’t use your cell phone much (I was paying about $100 per year). We decided I would be using my mobile phone more and switched my plan to the corporate plan.
