The Moto G6 may be a few years old, but it’s still a price performer — especially when it frequently goes on sale as an Amazon Alexa built-in phone — so if you’ve decided this is the phone you want in your pocket, you’ve got one more decision to make: which color do you want? We don’t have a million colors to choose from here, but the three options available for the Moto G6 still give us some happy variety.
Like a moonlit ocean
Moto G6 with Alexa built-in Deep Indigo
I’m a sucker for blue, especially when it’s deep and beautiful like this. The Deep Indigo might look black in lower lighting conditions, but set it under the light, and this little ocean gem will shine. This is my favorite of the three colors, but it’s only available with the 4GB/64GB configuration.

Just call it gold
Moto G6 with Alexa built-in Oyster Blush
Gold seems to have replaced white in standard phone colors these days, and while I’m more a fan of silver than gold, the hue here is one of the better rose gold shades I’ve seen: not too pink and not too pale. This color is only available in the smaller 3GB/32GB configuration, but with microSD, that’s still workable.

Goes with everything
Moto G6 with Alexa built-in Black
When in doubt, black it out! Black is slimming, simple, and goes with everything. It’s also just kinda dull, but at least it doesn’t show dust and grime quite as quickly as the Oyster Blush will. This is also the only color that’s available in both 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB.

Matching color and size configuration
The Moto G6 has been around for a while, so stocks of the device aren’t what they used to be. While color and size choices might not have mattered as much a year or so ago, these days you’ll need to make these choices together. The Deep Indigo is only available in the larger storage configuration — 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage — while the Oyster Blush is only available with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The extra gigabyte of RAM is useful, to be sure, but since the internal storage can be expanded via microSD card, it’s not the end of the world to grab the smaller capacity for that rose gold gleam.
Deep Indigo gets my vote for being a rich color but not being as flashy or ostentatious as the Oyster Blush. Life’s too short for boring tech, and even if you’re going to be hiding it in a great case, there’s no excuse not to start with a great color.
