- FHD Notch display at this price
- Multiple camera lens modes, AR lens, Night shot, Timelapse
- No AI feature in the camera
- EMUI 8.0 out the box instead 8.2
- Old Kirin processor. They could have launched with Kirin 710.
- Too many bloats(Though you can uninstall them)
MOTO G6 Pros & Cons:
- Stunning shiny Glass body
- FHD display
- Stock software, very fewer bloat wares
- Great battery performance
- No Notch
- Expandable up to 128 GB only.
Honor 9N has a notch and beautiful design at this price range and these are its selling points. But they are still using old Kirin 659 processor here. Honor is Huwaei’s secondary brand and Huawei just launched new Kirin 710 processor with their Huawei Nova 3i model. They must have used it in Honor 9N too.
Have a look at another comparison: Huawei Nova 3i and Xiaomi Mi A2
We can clearly say that Moto G6 is a better option over Honor 9N in terms of software, battery performance, design and charging speed. You can Buy Moto G6 by clicking this link.
