Moto G6 and E5 ranges: Everything you need to know

moto g6 plus official

Motorola’s Moto G6 and E5 ranges are here at last. Having completely failed to keep a lid on gossip and leaks about the new devices, Motorola finally revealed the new devices at a special event in Sao Paolo, Brazil overnight.

There five to choose from, ranging from a great budget option to a brilliant mid–ranger with specs that would make the very best phones blush. Here’s everything you need to know.

Moto G6 Plus

The leader of the pack, the Moto G6 Plus is the slickest of the five new Motorola smartphones, rocking an 18:9 screen that comes in at 5.9–inches and features Full HD smarts.

It’s around the back where the action is though, with a killer dual lens camera that features a wide f/1.7 aperture for improved low light performance. The snapper can also auto detect landmarks and objects to ensure sharp focus and perfect pics every time.

As with all of the new Moto range, Android Oreo comes as standard. The Moto G6 Plus is out on 2nd May exclusive to Carphone Warehouse. It costs £269 SIM–free.

The standard–sized Moto G6 features a 5.7–inch screen, as well as a dual lens camera featuring five and 12 megapixel sensors.

There’s a fingerprint scanner for authorising payments and unlocking the handset, while the impressive 3,000mAh battery can be juiced up in 15 minutes using the in–box Turbo Charger. The 3D glass back is a real attention grabber, too.

The Moto G6 is out on 2 May, costing £219 through Vodafone, Amazon, Argos and John Lewis.

The budget version of the G6 might be the cheaper version. But that’s not to say it doesn’t have plenty of features to make it truly appealing. Chief among them is the huge 4,000mAh battery, which Motorola says can last 32 hours on a single charge. That’s highly impressive.

Chuck in a 13-megapixel camera with phase detection auto focus and an 8-megapixel front facer for selfies and you’ve got a great budget handset.

It’s priced at £169 and available via EE, Vodafone, O2, Carphone Warehouse, Tesco, Amazon, Argos and John Lewis from 2 May.

Moto E5

The Moto E5 is the entry level device among the five new Motorola phones. It has an ergonomically curved back, 5.7–inch screen and fingerprint scanner hidden within the Motorola logo.

There’s support for 128GB SD cards, meaning bags of space for music and video. Out in early June, it costs £119 SIM–free.

The E5 Plus stands out thanks to its huge battery. At 5,000mAh, it’s bigger than anything else in the new range and should last the best part of two days on a single charge.

The screen is a massive 6–inches, all the better for watching Netflix on–the–go. Out in early June it costs £149.
