Motorola Moto G7 Plus review

Motorola calls this a compact design, even though it has a 5.7-inch screen which was considered huge a decade ago.

But for its $249 (£179, AU$330) price tag, you'll be getting what you paid for in every other respect: a Snapdragon 632 chipset, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (expandable via microSD).

As for the pricing, the Moto G7 Play is priced at $200 which isn' really cheap as there are far better options at that price range.

The Moto G7, G7 Power, G7 Plus, and G7 Play will be sold all over the world.

The circular housing in the centre of the rear housing the dual cameras remains a key feature, as it has done with numerous latest Motorola devices, while the "M" symbol below now has more objective than it has done previously thanks to the repositioned fingerprint sensor. And that's bad news for the likes of Samsung.

Moto G7 Power is an entirely new addition to the Moto G range, while everything else is a follow-up to the equivalent Moto G6 handset launched past year.

The Moto G7 also comes with solid specs and will be available in the USA. for $299. Shortly after it hits carriers, the G7 Power will go on sale unlocked through Best Buy, B&H Photo, Walmart, and Amazon. It has the same 6.2” 1080p+ display and 3,000mAh battery. You'll be able to buy the phones from that day. The G7 Power also lacks the IP54 water resistance the regular G7 has, but most users likely won't mind too much.

New Orleans is seeking "four first-round and second-round picks as part of a trade package", according to the report. I guess we'll just have to see what, if anything, Davis, Rich Paul and Klutch Sports have left up their sleeve.

The processor is a step up from the SD632 found in the other Moto G7 devices, as well as a step up from the SD630 found in the Moto G6 Play, which we felt was a little under-powered when we reviewed it. It's also a bit heavier at 198 grams. In addition, the phone will have a 27-watt fast charging that will give you 12 hours of power with just 15 minutes of charge. You've also got a 12-megapixel camera with 1.25μm pixels and an LED flash.

Like the Plus version, the standard Motorola G7 is a 6.2-inch mid-range mobile, although with slightly slimmed down hardware.

The new Moto G7 Power will be released in the USA starting this spring with subsequent availability at T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, Cricket Wireless (as the moto g7 supra), Consumer Cellular, Republic Wireless, Ting and Xfinity Mobile, and will be universally unlocked at Best Buy, B&H Photo, Walmart and on Amazon.com.

As far as the prices are concerned, the new Moto G7 is priced at $299 (around Rs. 21,300) whereas Moto G7 Plus is launched at Euro 299.99 (around Rs 24,500). You do get the same 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage memory configuration, though. The white one has nice shiny chrome edges too, so that one looks great.

A dual-lens rear camera also appears on the rear case along with a small Motorola logo which we're assuming will act as the fingerprint scanner. The G7 packs a 6.2-inch display with Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2270 pixels that is definitely sharper than those of the former two. The front camera is also capable of portrait mode despite being a single sensor with Motorola pulling on software to create those blurred images.

The Moto G7 Plus is enhanced over the other three models in several aspects even though the design looks like the G7.

The Plus-branded model is the device Moto is keenest to talk-up; it offers a "class-leading" 16MP dual camera system with optical image stabilisation and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor that apparently makes it the "fastest Moto G handset yet".
