Apart from this, you will also get a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. Apart from this, you will get a removable battery in the phone, which is not usually seen in any phone released these days. Is Moto E6s the best budget smartphone? let’s know…
Moto E6s design
The design of the Moto E6S is quite simple and basic. The border around the screen is slightly thick and the front panel has a notch at the top. The volume and power buttons are on the right side of the phone. We liked the contrasting texture of the power button, the 3.5mm headphone jack will be found at the top of the phone. The laminated back and sides look like two separate layers but are part of the same case.
Two color variants of Moto E6 will be available in India, Rich Carnberry and Polished Graphite. Fingerprints fall easily on both color variants. The red version of the Moto E6S comes with a two-tone finish, which hides fingerprints on the device but doesn’t remove smudges easily. The Moto E6s has two SIM slots and a separate microSD card slot.
With the help of the microSD card, it is possible to increase the storage up to 512 GB. For people’s information, let us tell you that only one micro-sim is used in one SIM slot of Moto E6S. A security fingerprint sensor has been placed on the back of the phone, which works fine. The Moto logo will be found on the fingerprint sensor. With the help of the fingerprint sensor, the phone is not unlocked quickly, but its success rate is good.
Face recognition works well in sufficient light, but it doesn’t work properly in low light. The thing to note is that it’s not much faster than the face unlock feature found on other budget smartphones, but it works. The bottom of the phone has a micro-USB port and a single speaker. The phone has a 6.1-inch full-HD+ (720×1560 pixels) OLED Max Vision display.
The outdoor screen was quite bright and the colors were accurate. The phone’s viewing angles are also good. The aspect ratio is 19.5:9, so the phone is big but not very wide, so the grip on the phone was good. The Moto E6 is not very heavy as it weighs 150 grams and is 8.6mm thick. In the retail box, you will find a USB cable, a 10W charger, some manuals, a case, and a nano to micro SIM adapter.
Moto E6s specs and software
Octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 processor has been used in the Moto E6S. Remember that this processor has also been used in Realme C2 (Review) and LG W30. Only one variant of Moto E6S has been launched in the Indian market, which is equipped with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage.
Talking about other Moto E6s specs, the phone features Bluetooth version 4.2, 802.11 b/g/n single-band Wi-Fi, USB-OTG, FM radio, support for three satellite navigation systems, accelerometer, light sensor environmental and proximity. Sensors are part of this phone. The thing to keep in mind is that the gyroscope or compass sensor does not have a place on the phone.
Moto E6S runs on Android Pie and comes with a standard interface. The Moto E6s is not part of Google’s Android One program. The phone will get an FM radio application, Moto Help and notifications from Motorola, with the help of which you can find the nearest Moto Hub store or service center. Apart from the Digital Wellbeing feature, the phone also has some gestures like double tapping the power button to turn on the camera.
Moto E6s performance and battery life
In terms of performance, the Moto E6S is fine for running apps and multitasking. Navigating the Android menu is fast but not smooth. Sometimes the UI animation gets a bit slow. The phone’s 4GB of RAM keeps multiple apps running smoothly in memory and app load times weren’t bad either.
Games also ran smoothly on the Moto E6S.
You will not get the best experience in the full version of PUBG Mobile. PUBG Mobile Lite still performed better. After 30 minutes of gaming, the phone definitely got a bit warm, along with a battery drain of 11 percent. Even after activating the ‘BesLoudness’ sound enhancement option, the sound from the speaker is not very loud. The viewing angles of the screen are good.
The 3,000 mAh battery powers the phone that lasts for almost a whole day. The phone lasted 12 hours and 22 minutes in our HD video battery loop test. If you don’t use the phone continuously, the phone’s battery may last more than one day. The fast charger that comes with the phone can charge the phone only 15 percent in half an hour and around 30 percent in an hour. The phone takes approximately 3 hours and 45 minutes to fully charge.
Cameras Moto E6s
The Moto E6S has two rear cameras, a 13-megapixel primary sensor, its aperture is F/2.0, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. An 8-megapixel front camera will be available for selfies and video calls. The camera app houses the shooting mode and shutter buttons at the bottom and the different mode buttons at the top of the viewfinder. The Moto E6S also has AI scene detection which can be turned on or off.
Google Lens can also be used from the Camera app. Autofocus isn’t very fast, so capturing fast-moving objects, even when there’s enough light, is a challenge. HDR works well when shooting against the light, but the dynamic range is a bit limited. Details were captured well in close-ups. Photos taken in daylight appear overexposed.
In Bokeh mode, you’ll get a slider to adjust the blur level of the background. A separate beauty shot mode has been provided to soften the subject’s face, other shot modes include video and panorama. In low light, the camera has a bit of a hard time locking focus.
Details aren’t captured well in night shots with the Moto E6S, and landscape shots look a bit grainy. Selfies taken with the front camera in daylight were average. The phone has HDR but it’s not very useful. Grain is visible on selfies taken at night, and details are lacking. The screen flash is also not very useful.
Video quality in daylight is also average, and there’s no electronic stabilization even at 1080 resolution. In low light, image quality lacked sharpness and details weren’t captured well either.
The Moto E6S is probably the only phone in this price range that comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, which is pretty decent. Recently, we have seen many of these phones in this price segment that come with large batteries. Xiaomi’s Redmi 8A comes with a Type-C port and fast charging support, as well as a large battery.
The Moto E6s has a decent screen, and the RAM and storage are pretty decent for a device at this price. If you don’t mind low RAM and storage, there are other better options like the Realme 3i (Review) and Redmi 7 on the market. <!–
