Moto G6 vs Moto G5: What’s changed

Display

One of the biggest differences between the Moto G6 and its predecessor is the display. The Moto G5 features a standard 5-inch full-HD IPS LCD display. In comparison, the Moto G6 is equipped with a 5.7-inch full HD+ Max Vision display which comes with the 18:9 aspect ratio. In terms of display alone, the Moto G6 is a true successor and offers the more trending edge-to-edge display.

Hardware

Given that there have been Moto G5s series in between the Moto G5 and Moto G6, the hardware too has seen an improvement this time around. The Moto G5 came equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core SoC clocked at 1.4GHz and paired with just 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The successor, Moto G6, is equipped with the newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa-core SoC and is available in two models: 3GB of RAM + 32GB of internal storage, and 4GB of RAM+ 64GB of internal storage. Both support microSD card for storage expansion.

Camera

Another noticeable change between the Moto G6 and Moto G5 is the camera setup. The Moto G5 was rather traditional featuring a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel selfie camera up front. The Moto G6, on the other hand, comes with a dual-camera setup at the back a 12-megapixel primary sensor of aperture f/1.8 and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. It can record full HD videos at 60fps. Up front, there is an 8-megapixel camera for selfies and video calling.

Battery, connectivity

Another upgrade is in terms of the battery. The Moto G5 includes a smaller 2,800mAh battery, whereas the Moto G6 comes armed with a 3,000mAh battery. The addition to the Moto G6 is also in terms of authentication methods. It includes Face Unlock system which is in addition to the fingerprint sensing tech.

Both Moto G6 and Moto G5 support Turbo Charging. Both come with a dedicated fingerprint sensor. Connectivity options on both models include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, dual SIM card slots and 4G VoLTE.
