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.



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 4.2 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I've had this phone about 6months and can't say anything bad about it. Charges super fast and is so easy to use . Did have a Samsung but in my opinion this Moto is far better for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great phone but scratches and marks far too easily I didn't have the megabucks for the latest Samsung and I don't like being tied to a contract so I did a bit of research and opted for this phone. Now I'm no phone snob and I'm definitely not into technology in a big way so this phone is great for me. It does everything I want it to do, social media, good camera, plenty of memory for streaming apps and other apps. Excellent battery life, far better than Samsung. I would've given it 5 stars but the screen marks and scratches VERY easily. I've never had that problem in the past with my usual Samsungs and I've dropped them many times. Apart from that, great phone at a bargain price.
