Not had any of the scary story experiences yet tbh, had 4 items, all forwarded via EU, all arrived within 8 working days of clear funds and all brand new and sealed, used CC on 3 orders and PP on 1, just to see if any different on order process or times etc, very happy with them so far!

Only mentioned the price VS spec, as the moto 6 play is awful for the money, but I guess people will still buy them anyway!!
I looked at all G6 and E5 models and opted for the G6 Play. Had it for 2 weeks now and love it.

I know it's possible to get it for a slightly lower price at Carphone Warehouse using the by on monthly contract and cancel route, however the John Lewis 2 year warranty swung it for me.

i know you only mentioned spec vs price - convenient that!
i thought id provide the balance

chargebacks and s75 are not real comparisons to an actual retailer warranty (2 year in this case)
the EU forwarding is 'nice' but is 99.9% a tax dodge mechanism
g5s is how much in the UK?

not saying dont order from abroad (considering the pixel myself) but need an overall picture and like vs like
This vs the honor 9 lite?
just bought one on the Argos for the same price

I just checked for you and sorry to say you have only 12 months.

Do you work in construction?

Personally I always get a good case (spigen if poss) and a decent glass screen protector. If I can keep the phone in grade A condition, I can trade it in down the line for top value.

Thanks! Well, when it didn't get lost, stolen or screen-cracked I use to switch for the new model

If she's anything like my daughter then it's all about being trendy. The g6 play has the new 18:9 screen style (long and slender) which is all the craze at the moment. Specs wise, she will be up there with the best in her class (private schools excluded . The big downside for everyday use is g6 play has zero waterproofing, it's not even splashproof. Other than that it looks and feels premium and for £149 with 2 years cover it's an awesome new gen phone.

Hope this helps

This vs the honor 9 lite?


Honor 9 Lite 100%.

Moto G6 Play only has 720x1440 res, whereas Honor 9 Lite is full 1080x2160 resolution.

Bought my mum the Honor 9 Lite to replace her old Moto G4 and it is FAST. Literally can't tell the difference between my Nokia 8 (flagship Snapdragon 835 cpu) and the H9L. I'm pleasantly surprised.

Also Moto/Lenovo aren't great with updates, keep that in mind also.
Can't help wonder if the £109 deal on a 30 day vodafone sim might not be worth the extra hassle?

Also Argos and Very if you have vouchers to use up.

Could I find out what site does the comparison tables on price like that please
I got the g6 for £200 and feel this one to be better value.
Been this price for a couple of weeks now

Me too please..
I'd just be a bit worried about the micro usb socket in the g6 play, hopefully it wont have the same problems our g5 had, that didn't last a year before developing issues with the usb
I had battery problems with the G6 Plus and started a thread on Motorola's forum which is slowly but surely gathering other similar stories. If you buy online you get 7 days hassle-free returns through Distance Selling so make sure to put it through its paces within the first week for security.

I didn't think it was worth the hassle, so went with John Lewis and get a 2 year warranty to boot.

Never had an issue with updates on my Moto z or z2. They're generally one of the first to release them.
I'm having ghost touch issues with my G5 ...... horrific experience when it happens, bloody MOTO crap!!

AVOID, buy something decent
That's my comment in another Moto's G series deal:

"I'll keep far away from Moto from now on aas the ghost touch was so frustrating on G4. I should shout out loudly to help others as Moto didn't release any info on this issue. It might happen again on G6."
