This is not a 1080p screen on g6 model

2018-05-30, 17:33 PM

I brought this Moto g6 that says screen as 1080p which isn't true

 

Tested on YouTube won't do anything past 720p you can stretch the screen but you shouldn't after

 

Tvplayer still 720p so you get the black border on each left and right like the Moto g6 play

 

Is it because it's a 18:9 screen

 

So it seems Motorola have lied about the screen being full 1080 screen 

 

If it's 1080 then watching YouTube should select 1080

T

Anyone else noticed this

I think over time a lot of people have seen what you're describing, except it has nothing to do with Moto lying about the screen specs.

 

There is no relationship between what YouTube plays and the pixel density of the screen.  For some reason, YouTube is not displaying the full resolution that's available.  

 

You can download an app from the Play store, if you'd like, that will tell you what resolutions are possible on this screen.

THIS IS EVIDENCE MOTOROLA HAVE GONE **removed** AND LIE ABOUT SPEC OF SCREENS

 

they say its 1080p but you cant view full screen mode just black bars like the g6 play so best bet is buy a different phone

If you're the same guy that posted on the HUKD site, and your post is surprisingly similar, then you purchased the G6 Play and that doesn't have a 1080p screen! So no, you haven't been lied to.

Because the G5s is a 1080p screen and more importantly a 16:9 ratio. As the G6 phones are all 18:9 they will inevitably show HD content with a small amount of letterboxing, as would any 18:9 display. That's the trade off of going to 18:9, if you wanted full screen HD then you should've maybe looked at the Moto X4 instead.

I highly disagree. You must either have the G6 Play or a defective device. My Moto G6 plays everything at 1080p and 60fps with the option to pinch zoom into full screen on youtube and it looks great.
