Big screen. Small body.

Packed into a compact design, the 5.7” Max Vision display spans from edge-to-edge with virtually no bezels. The larger 18:9 aspect ratio provides you with maximum viewing, so entertainment never looked better. You’ll be able to see more of what you stream, and enjoy ultra-wide landscape views of your favourite games.


Get tough

With super-touch Corning Gorilla Glass protecting your Moto G6 Play, it’ll stay scratch-free and in great shape for longer.



Great shots made easy

The 13MP main camera on the Moto G6 Play focuses as fast as you do, so taking great shots easy. Just point and shoot. Plus, you always get the best pictures, because the camera automatically takes multiple shots and recommends the best one to keep.


Blur-free action

The 13MP main camera comes with Optical Image Stabilisation, so you can take blur-free photos and videos even when you’re in telephoto mode.



Play fast

The Moto G6 Play is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 1.4 GHz octa-core processor, giving you all the speed you need. You’ll be able to run your biggest apps without slowing down, enjoy games and videos without annoying stutters, and browse the web or stream music on superfast 4G.


Do more with your fingerprint

The Moto G6 lay’s fingerprint reader does more than just unlock your phone. With the free Moto Key app, you can access your favourite password-secured apps with a simple press of your finger.

Keep going for longer

Nothing spoils the fun like running out of juice. That’s why the Moto G6 Play has a massive 4000 mAh battery designed to last more than a full day. And when it’s time to recharge, the TurboPower charger gives you hours of power in just minutes.

Motorola G6 Play is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good not perfect I've bought the Moto G6 play and I own a G5. Side by side you will see the difference in screen colour quality has G6 has lower specs than G5. However I'm impressed with the G6 screen due to size and as 3g ram runs smoothly. With the extra Moto gestures and Oreo software on the phone it will now be my main phone keeping my G5 as back up. Note... You need a good cover the silicon one in box will slide easily in pockets AND if you want a fantastic photo buy a Camera not a phone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware, some things ARE to good to be true. So owned this phone for a week in total. When I went to the shop to buy this phone sim free the first thing I was told was "This has no carphone warehouse warranty only a manufacturer one" should have took that as a warning sign really. Anyway brought the phone anyway as I was in dire need of a phone. Took the phone and it looks nice performs well. Was having lunch in work sat on the floor and the phone slipped out of my pocket. The g6 comes with a silicone's fine it's dropped 2 inches I thought. Boom! Cracked screen. And I mean a massively cracked screen. With a little tap. Gorilla glass my sweet chuds. The LCD is fine but the glass is tearing my thumbs to shreds as I type this. I went through some headaches emailing Motorola and basically they said I have to send it in for repair. Funny story they would not quote me for the rough cost of the replacement glass. So I hand my phone in as it is "not covered" and I could be paying anything for the screen and they have my phone hostage ? Do you want to deal with that headache ? No? Nor me. I regret buying this phone now as it is a Glass cannon. Should have bought a Samsung. Not a good experience.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone Bought in gold, looks great, easy to use with my small hands, not loving the android 8 yet and very disappointed to find it only works on single band WiFi, apparently there is another version of g6 play that works on dual, which would have been preferable. Overall, very good at this price and near stock android

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing quality and features, at a surprising pric Great technical standards, fingerprint recognition in back is most convenient, hand sensor showing the clock at night is also cool. In short all great technicals for an unbelievably low price. Also bigger, better and cheaper than the G5S plus! Really better than many phones that are 2 to 3 times more expensive.
