The Moto G6 Play has a 4000mAh battery and a micro USB jack along with a slower 10w charging capability. You get one 13MP rear camera and 8MP front camera and even though the back appears to have two cameras, it has only the one, with the other fitted with an LED flash. The back has a unique glass-like back panel that is actually made of plastic.
