Motorola Moto G series family of phones is close to launch date than ever as the manufacturer has announced the launch event on April 19th.
The other two models of the G6 family namely Moto G6 and Moto G6 Plus were already spotted in GeekBench results along with Moto E5 Plus belonging to the E5 family. Now that the other device Moto G6 Play has appeared in Geekbench, we can evaluate the performance of all these phones.
New GeekBench Scores
The Play series is supposed to be on par or better in terms of performance when compared to the entry-level E series smartphones from Motorola. When the G6 Play was first spotted in GeekBench back in February, the phone’s single core and multi-core scores were sub-par when compared to the Moto E5 Plus. Back then, Moto G6 Play scored 472 for Single-core and 1801 for Multi-core. Moto E5 Plus seemed to be slightly better with 653 and 1835 as single and multi core scores and it was slightly disappointing to see that. However, in the latest listing of Moto G6 Play, we were able to find the updated scores as 641 for Single-core and 2334 for Multi-core.
The new results confirmed that the Play series phone will beat the E5 Plus any day in multi-core processing and should be a much more capable phone with improved hardware capability. Buyers who go for the G series phones in 2018 will get what they expect from the models.
Moto G6 Play Vs Moto E5 Plus – Hardware Specifications
The Motorola Moto G6 Play is powered by a 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 430 processor with 3GB of RAM. The Moto E5 Plus is expected to use the same Snapdragon 430 with 3GB of RAM and these chipsets are far apart as the 400 series is the entry level while the 600 series from Qualcomm is a mid-range processor. The latest GeekBench test result looks more plausible and confirmed that the Play will be a superior device in terms of battery life, smooth performance and handling intensive apps.
