The Moto G6 Plus looks brilliant smartphone in terms of design & build quality. Cameras on G6 Plus seems decent. However, the battery backup is not up to the mark but given the facility of quick charging, the smartphone does well in that department too.
The major drawback of Moto G6 Plus is performance to price ratio. At around 23K, it only offers Snapdragon 630 SoC which is predecessor of Snapdragon 636. That doesn’t mean Snapdragon 630 is not good, its good enough to give decent level of performance. But when compared with other smartphones in this price range, G6 Plus lacks way behind.
On the other hand, Redmi Note 5 Pro and Asus Zenfone Max Pro M1 (both comes with Snapdragon 636) at around 15K which offers better performance, massive battery, decent cameras and overall value for money smartphones.
And if you are looking for smartphone at around the price of G6 Plus (23K), then POCO F1 and Honor Play are best options to opt for at a lower price and get flagship-level performance.
