To get the quick take on the E5 and E5 Plus, you'll want to watch our hands-on video above. There's also an embrace of new materials, and this year we see the G6 move away from an all-metal build to now feature a glass-wrapped design. Once you're done with the video, read our full impressions below!
Moto G6 Play specifications The Moto G6 Play also features the same 5.7-inch FullHD extended display like the G6 and runs stock Android 8.0 Oreo. The Moto G6 Plus will cost €299 (roughly $370 with a straight conversion), the E5 will set you back €149 ($185), and the E5 Plus is going to cost €169 ($210). Users will be notified as soon as the update is made available on the device. In the simplest terms, they offered the best screen, performance, camera and battery you could find around the £150 mark.
Armed with Android Oreo operating system, the E5 Play comes in Snapdragon 425/427 processors with Adreno 308 GPU and 2 GB RAM. It isn't so good in low light, with plenty of noise creeping in, but you can get useable results if you're careful.
These are full-day phones without question - and they even pack TurboPower chargers.
Much like the regular Moto G6, the Moto G6 Play ships with a 5.7-inch IPS LCD panel with a tall aspect ratio of 18:9, i.e. 2:1. Both are IPS LCDs at 1440x720 resolution, which is completely fine for this price range (we're talking well under €199 here) and look just fine.
With a 4,000mAh battery that promises 36 hours of juice, the rest of the handset is decidedly lower end than the G6.
The Moto G6 will be available in one colour at launch, called "Deep Indigo". The main snapper is a 12-megapixel unit with an f/1.8 aperture and phase detect autofocus.
The phone has 13 megapixels rear camera with LED flash and 8 megapixels front camera with LED flash.
Battlefield V Battle Royale Said to Be in The Works at DICE
It appears the Battlefield franchise may not be the only well-established FPS series to potentially feature a battle royale mode. If true, Battlefield: Battle Royale may end up becoming nothing more than an internal project that never sees the light of day.
It's worth noting that the Moto G6 Plus comes with a superior rear camera, on paper.
The two E5 phones will only be available through carriers in the U.S., although they could come from any carrier.
The Play actually sports the larger battery of the two, at 4,000mAh to the G6's 3,000. It really feels like a refreshed Moto E4, not a part of the E5 family.
Finally, we've got the Moto E5 Play, and as you should be able to work out from the attached specs, this is the most conservative of Moto's new affordable lineup, cutting corners here and there to keep pricing super-low.
The E5 Plus is the one to get, provided you can handle the size and weight.
"The E5 Play has 5.2" HD display with an 8MP rear shooter. The moto g and moto e product families offer the flawless combination of features for consumers who don't want to compromise on quality, style or experience.
It means Motorola has been able to pack in a 5.9-inch display into a similar size body to on previous phones and although you do get that almighty nearly 6-inch screen we didn't find it as uncomfortable to hold as the Moto G5S Plus. It features a 12MP rear camera and a big 5000mAh battery. The smartphone is armed with a 2,800mAh battery and connectivity options such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, 4G VoLTE, and dual SIM card slots. It's set to cost £269 in the United Kingdom (about $380, AU$490) and we don't now know if the phone will be launching in Australia.
