Samsung Galaxy J6 vs Redmi 6 Pro vs Moto g6 Play: Final Verdict
From my initial observations, plastic construction aside, competitors are offering a lot more in terms of the display, dual cameras and even bigger batteries and Samsung’s On6 even on paper appears to fall a bit too short.
In fact, Samsung’s brand new online product even falls short of Vivo’s recently launched Y83 smartphone, which seems to offer slightly better specifications on paper. The Vivo Y83 even offers a lot more display area as compared to the rest of the smartphones in this comparison, sadly, it packs in an HD+ display unit, which falls short of the offerings by Motorola and Xiaomi.
And then comes the price. At Rs 14,990, it’s hard to look at the plastic Samsung On6 when you have beautiful devices like the premium-looking Moto G6 and the powerful Redmi Note 5 Pro available for purchase at a similar price.
