Does the basic G6 include a magnetometer?

Does the Motorola G6 Dual SIM Smartphone as available in the UK include a magnetometer to allow a compass app to be installed?

I am talking here about the basic (not the "Plus") version of the G6.

Yes, it has a magnetometer, but not all compass applications work properly. Install what I gave the link below, it's a very good compass. For me, Moto G6 works perfectly. The first time you ask for calibration, you have to make several times the phone in the shape of a figure eight, then the compass will work properly.

Both versions are free and without advertising.

I recommend the 3D version because it works in both modes (3D / 2D).
