The sixth iteration of Motorola's budget-class Moto E smartphone that was initially carried by Verizon, the 2019 Motorola Moto E6 suffers from cons like an HD-only (1440 x 720) 5.5-inch display that flounders in comparison to those of the best phablets of its time, even though it has an appreciable 18:9 aspect ratio . It also does not come with that much on-board storage, at only 16GB -- many of its closest rivals pack twice as much native memory, but it does have room for up to 256GB of top-up storage.
The E6's hardware pros and cons do not sound that promising, either, coming in the form of a 1.4GHz eight-core Snapdragon 435 processor that does not quite line up with those of the market's leading octa-core smartphones. Additionally, it only comes with 2GB of RAM , whereas a lot of its budget-class competitors start out with 3GB on that front, while an Adreno 505 GPU takes charge of the graphics department.
As for its pros, the E6 is powered by a 3000mAh battery promising a 29-hour (a little over 1700 minutes) up-time on a single charge, outstripping what some competing low-budget smartphones listed here on Phonerated offer. Note that several models within its price group pack only roughly 2500mAh of raw battery power.
Its imaging specs include a 13-megapixel PDAF-enabled (phase-detection autofocus) main camera that we consider passable, at least relative to its 150-dollar initial price point. It also comes with a 5-megapixel front-facing sub-cam aided by a screen flash function. This Moto E edition supports FDD and TDD 4G-LTE bands with carrier aggregation and it dons Motorola's signature P2i water-repellent nano coating .

With a finish of either Starry Black or Navy Blue and the Android 9.0 Pie OS rounding out this review of its pros and cons, the Moto E6 seems like a feasible choice for budget Android shoppers eying a basic octa-core-powered smartphone.
