Motorola Moto E6i

Motorola Moto E6i Review, Pros and Cons – Motorola Moto E6i was released for the Brazilian smartphone market not too long ago (actually on Feb11). This Entry-level device appears with standard features and value-worthy specs. But, honestly, everything is just sugar-coating about this phone.

In reality, it’s not even reliable as the Nokia 3.4, except that the Moto E6i phone has decent battery life compared to its rivals. In the age of 5G technology, this phone will only consist of the primary 4G LTE settings, which supposedly good once you visit its overall specs. So, without any further ado, let’s see what the Motorola Moto E6i phone has to offer to us.

Motorola Moto E6i Review

Highlights

  1. The device arrives with a Unisoc SC9863A to run the whole system.
  2. As for the camera plate, a 13MP dual-camera at the back while a 5MP camera at the front for selfie.
  3. You can utilize the 6.1 inches HD resolution based on an IPS LCD screen.
  4. Besides this, the software layer of the Android 10 Go edition gives a smooth interface.
  5. In the battery section, you have to depend on the Li-Po 3000 mAh battery.

Design and Display

If the design doesn’t ring the bells, you might not have seen the Moto E6s 2020, which is equipped with a similar design and almost similar specs. In short, E6i is the renamed version of E6s. Though, it doesn’t change the fact that you will get a decent shade choice. The Moto E6i phone appears in two marvelous colors Titanium Gray and Pink.

With both color schemes, you will obtain a refreshing and classy feel. But in case you want to get a professional-looking device, undoubtedly, the metallic gradient Titanium Gray is the best choice. Whereas the Pink shade looks more renowned and fancy, it could be an excellent choice for those who prefer punchy colors over bold colors. Though, there’s no gorilla glass protection on the screen.

Anyway, here you will receive a 6.1 inches screen. Besides this, the phone has a small battery that makes it lightweight, which is obvious. While having polycarbonate is not a big deal. Inside the panel, the company leverages the LCD technology that getting decent colors vividness is possible to some extent. But, don’t expect too much as it falls behind in resolution and pixel density.

Memory and Internal

What happens inside the motherboard, might be hard to grasp. However, what we have understood while reviewing that we notice issues in multitasking. Though, it was because the storage is used, once the storage reaches its maximum capacity, you will observe the toll on the performance.

That’s why you should use the Micro SD slot to overcome the shortage problem. Even though the phone offers 2GB RAM and 32GB space. It’s not sufficient to store your precious family trip photos and videos. So, in that case, you can use Google Photos to overcome storage shortcomings, as well.

On the other hand, the software of the Android 10 Go edition is subtle. So, you won’t see any bloatware wandering in the interface. Plus, there are tons of customization features, and you can get everything on the homepage. Although, the chipset is only able to give a 1.6GHz cloaking speed, which is pretty low.

Camera

The Moto E6i phone is a basic-tier device, expecting something robust and out of the box will be just a dream. Speaking of the technical aspects, a 13MP dual camera houses on the back panel. It includes the primary sensor with a 2MP depth lens to capture bokeh images. Although, you won’t observe any precise detail in the images and videos.

The photos output will be standard when you take snaps in proper daylight, while on the other hand, there will be less detail when you start photography in the low light. On top of that, the photo quality will also drop. Though you can get great saturation in the pro modes, it doesn’t overcome the AI software limitation.

There’s no sight view of the dynamic range of features. Still, it’s a piece of good news that you can record videos up to 1080p. If you don’t hold the phone properly, the video result might be a bit shaky. At the front, the 5MP lens joins the league to cover the needs of the selfie clickers.

Battery and Others

Under the hood, the ample power comes from the Li-Po 3000 mAh battery, and it also grants a better screen on time for 6+ hours. With that, you can play lite games without any problem. But playing high-end games is not possible. Not to forget, there’s a 10W charging support that comes inside the box. So, you can charge the phone for an hour and a half. It might be more useful if it wouldn’t have an outdated MicroSD port to charge.

Now, moving to the price point. When the Moto E6i phone released at an extortionist cost of BRL1,099 or $205 (14000 INR) respective to its specs. Though the price drops to BRL899 ($160) and now it sounds like a great deal.
