Moto E6S Review : Flawless Device with Average Performance
Lenovo-owned Motorola has launched its new Moto E6S smartphone in the budget segment.This is the same phone as the Moto E6 Plus that we recently saw at the IFA trade show held in Berlin. Motorola has launched this handset with a slightly different name in India and its price is also very attractive. The phone has been priced at Rs 7,999 and at this price 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage variants will be sold. Read on our first hand Moto E6S Review here.
Moto E6S Review : First Impression
Apart from this, you will also get a fingerprint sensor in the back of the phone. Apart from this, you will get a removable battery in the phone, which is not usually seen in any handset launched these days. Is the Moto E6s the best budget smartphone?
Moto E6S Design:
The design of the Moto E6S is quite simple and basic. The border around the display is a bit thicker and the top panel has a notch on the front. The volume and power buttons are on the right side of the phone. We liked the contrasting texture of the power button, a 3.5mm headphone jack will be found on the upper part of the phone. The laminated back and sides look like two separate layers but are part of the same shell.
Phone will be launched in two color variants of Moto E6s in India, Rich Cornberry and Polished Graphite. The red version of the Moto E6S comes with a dual-tone finish, due to which the fingerprints on this device are hidden but the spots are not cleaned easily. The Moto E6s has two SIM-slots and a separate microSD card slot.
Phone’s memory can be extended up to 512 GB using MicroSD card. There is a fingerprint sensor for security in the back of the phone, which works correctly. Moto logo will be found on the fingerprint sensor. The phone does not unlock fast with the help of fingerprint sensor but its success rate is good.
Face recognition works well in sufficient light but in low light it does not work correctly. The thing to note is that it is not much faster than the Face Unlock feature found in other budget smartphones but it works. The bottom of the phone has a micro-USB port and a single loudspeaker. The phone has a 6.1-inch full-HD + (720×1560 pixels) OLED MAX Vision display.
The display was quite bright in the outdoor and the colors were also correct. The viewing angles of the phone are also good. Aspect ratio is 19.5: 9 due to which the phone is big but it is not very wide, so the phone had good grip. The Moto E6 is not very heavy as it weighs 150 grams and is 8.6 millimeters thick. In the retail box, you will find USB cable, 10 watt charger, some manuals, case and nano-to-micro SIM adapter.
Specifications and Software:
Moto E6S is powered by the Octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 processor. Remember that this processor has also been used in Realme C2 and LG W30. Only one variant of Moto E6S has been launched in the Indian market, which is equipped with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage.
The phone has Bluetooth version 4.2, single-band Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n, USB-OTG, FM radio, support for three satellite navigation systems, accelerometer, ambient light sensor and proximity Sensors are part of this phone. It is worth noting that the gyroscope or compass sensor has not found a place in the phone.
The Moto E6S runs on Android Pie and comes with a stock interface. The Moto E6s are not part of Google’s Android One program.
Performance and Battery Life:
The Moto E6S is perfect for running apps and doing a little bit of multitasking. Navigating Android menu is fast but it is not fluid. Sometimes the UI animation slows down a bit. Due to the 4 GB RAM in the phone, many apps in memory keep running smoothly and the app load time was not bad either.
Unfortunately, you will not get the best experience in the full version of PUBG Mobile. PUBG Mobile Lite still did better. After 30 minutes of gameplay, the phone did get slightly warmer, with 11 percent battery consumption. Even after turning on the ‘BesLoudness’ sound enhancement option, the sound from the speaker is not very loud. The viewing angles of the display are good.
The 3,000 mAh battery serves as a booster in the phone, which lasts for almost a full day. In our HD video battery loop test, the phone ran for 12 hours and 22 minutes. If you do not use the phone continuously, then the battery of the phone can last more than a day. Rapid charger available with the phone can charge the phone only 15 percent in half an hour and about 30 percent in an hour. It takes about 3 hours and 45 minutes for the phone to be fully charged.
Moto E6S Cameras:
The Moto E6S has two rear cameras, a 13-megapixel primary sensor, with F / 2.0 aperture and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. There will be an 8 megapixel front camera for selfie and video calling. Shooting mode and shutter button are given in the camera app at the bottom. The Moto E6S also has AI scene detection that can be turned on or off.
Google lens can also be used from the camera app. If autofocus is not too fast, then the challenge is to capture fast-moving objects even when there is enough light. HDR works well when shooting in contrast to light but the dynamic range is a bit limited. The details were captured well in close-up shots. Shots taken in the light of day seem overexposed.
In bokeh mode you will get a slider to adjust the level of background blur. A separate beauty shooting mode is provided for smoothing the subject face, other shooting modes include video and paneroma. In low light, the camera is a bit difficult to lock focus.
At night, the shots taken from the Moto E6S do not capture the details well and the landscape shots look a bit grainy. In the light of day, selfies taken from the front camera were average. The phone has HDR but it is not very useful. The selfie taken at night shows a grain and there is a lack of detail. Screen flash is also not very useful.
Video quality is also average in daylight and there is no electronic stabilization at 1080 resolution. In low light, image quality lacked sharpness and the detail was not captured well.
Moto E6S Review : Conclusion:
That’s all with our Moto E6S Review. Presumably, Moto E6S will be the only phone in this price that is equipped with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage which is quite good. Recently we have seen many such phones in the same price segment that come with large batteries. Xiaomi’s Redmi 8A comes with Type-C port and fast charging support, as well as a large battery.
