I think the Moto G5 Plus was the best budget phone of 2017. It was among the first to truly offer a complete smartphone experience for such a low price. A Honda Civic of smartphones. I even included it in my Top Ten Android Phones of All Time article from April. For less than $200 (on Amazon), you got an unlocked device with an excellent display, solid performance, outstanding fingerprint scanner, great battery life (with fast charging), surprisingly decent cameras and compatibility with all US carriers. Now we have the Moto G6 for 2018 and it puts some modern touches on last year’s workhorse. Does it live up to the greatness of its predecessor? Well, yes and no. But there’s a big caveat as I’m not using the Moto G6 Plus. That model isn’t coming to the US. So let’s see how this model fares on its own as a daily driver.
