Motorola leads the pack when it comes to mid-range smartphones, and the Moto G6 is the latest and greatest of the G line. Covered with curved Gorilla Glass 3 and sporting a dual-camera setup and a bright, gorgeous screen (along with the snappy software Motorola is known for), this is a phone that absolutely looks premium without costing an arm and a leg. All the more reason to accessorize and take full advantage of it!
Spigen Rugged Armor case
Motorola kindly includes a thin and clear case with the G6, but if you’re looking for something a bit more substantial, we have to recommend the Spigen Rugged Armor case. It’s got that carbon fiber look at the top and bottom with a matte finish elsewhere, along with Spigen’s air cushion technology in the corners to help absorb impacts.
Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro case
This rugged case has a hard plastic shell, flexible rubber bumper, and a built-in screen protector, so you can protect your Moto G6 on all sides. It has reinforced corners to protect the most vulnerable parts of your phone, and it even comes with a belt clip if you find it too bulky for a pocket.
Mr. Shield tempered glass screen protector (3-pack)
This screen protector 3-pack has tempered glass protectors to help keep your Moto G6’s screen scratch-free. These also feature an oleophobic coating, which helps prevent fingerprints and smudges.
Juice it up
Motorola TurboPower 15W Wall Charger
Motorola includes its TurboPower wall charger with the Moto G6 that it claims delivers hours of battery life in just minutes of charging. Suffice to say, not all wall bricks work the same with different phones. If you want that same fast-charging tech in the office but would rather not transport your wall charger back and forth, pick up a second one and keep the peace of mind that you’re using charging accessories that were actually designed to work with your phone.
Charge on the go
Tronsmart USB-C car charger
This USB-C charger is perfect for juicing up your Moto G6 during your commute. The best part is the attached USB-C cable, so there’s no need to worry about bring and/or losing your other charging cables. It also has a USB-A port for charging other devices simultaneously at Quick Charge 3.0 speeds.
Expand your storage
Samsung EVO Select 128GB microSD card
The Moto G6 comes with internal storage options of 32GB or 64GB, but also allows for expandable storage of up to 128GB with the microSD slot. That way you can load it up with your favorite movies, music, or whatever media you want to have on you at all times. It’s a great deal and a fantastic way to increase the utility of your phone over time.
Ventev Powercell 6010+
This power bank features a built-in USB-C cable for charging your Moto G6 on the go. It has a 6000mAh battery, which should charge your Moto G6 at least once, depending on your usage, and will likely charge it 1.5 times. To charge the Powercell itself, it has built-in prongs for your standard power outlet.
OnePlus Bullets wireless earbuds
The OnePlus Bullets aren’t just for OnePlus phones — they’re excellent wireless earbuds for anyone. These come in black or red and provide great sound, thanks to the aptX audio codec. They feature a comfortable neckband, up to eight hours of battery life, and a great magnetic connect/disconnect feature.
Long live the jack
Audio-Technica ATH-M30x wired headphones
Audio-Technica makes excellent headphones that are a superb value when you consider how great they sound for the price. The $69 ATH-M30x over-ear headphones have a built-in cord, comfortable ear cups, and feature 40mm drivers, offering fantastic bass and a well-rounded overall sound. It’s a lot of bang for your buck.
Hands-free in the car
iOttie Easy One Touch 4 car mount
iOttie’s fourth-generation One Touch mount comes with a disc that adheres to your dashboard, and the unit itself sticks via suction cup for a tight hold that won’t slip or jostle around. The cradle is spring-loaded, so you just have to push your Moto G6 in with one hand to widen it, and it cradles your phone with a firm grip. The arm articulates up to 225 degrees, and the head extends and pivots to your liking.
Anker Powerline+ braided nylon USB-C cable (2-pack)
These USB-C to USB-A cables are wrapped in braided nylon for excellent durability, and they won’t tangle up in your bag. You get two 6-foot cables in this pack, and they come in black, red, or a pack with both. They’re rated for a lifespan of 6,000 bends, and Anker offers a lifetime warranty.
With an inexpensive phone like the Moto G6, you might have money left over for accessories, which is ideal if you want the most out of your phone. Start off with a great case, like the Supcase Unicorn Beetle Pro and then consider a great car charger, like Tronsmart’s. These are practical accessories to start you off before moving onto the fun ones!
