Motorola Moto G7 Plus review

Since Lenovo bought Motorola, the company has pivoted from introducing single phones to launching several slightly different devices simultaneously. The device also comes with 32GB of storage which is expandable as earlier stated.

The tear drop notch at the top of the G7 Plus's display is a feature we've seen on more expensive devices of late too - such as the OnePlus 6T - and it looks great, placing the G7 Plus firmly in premium territory without that premium price tag.

That suggests who Motorola's target audience is: budget-conscious consumers looking for a phone that will last longer between charging sessions -and that's not a bad pitch to customers at any price tier. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor paired with 4GB of RAM while there is 64GB of storage onboard. Not overly powerful, but not bargain bin-quality either. "Videos and images come to life on its u-design, 6.2" Max Vision Full HD+ display.

All four handsets are running Android 9.0 Pie, as you'd expect from a flagship smartphone range launched in 2019. The G7 Play isn't a battery monster, a title the G7 Power has claimed, but the G7 Play's focus is on affordability.

The display has a resolution of 1520 x 720, so it's not full HD like the G7 (2270 x 1080), but I do like that the screen-to-body ratio on this Max Vision display is more than 78 percent. It weighs 198g, which makes it feel a little bulky compared to some other smart phones, although not almost as bulky as you'd expect given its powerful battery. The camera is the same as on the G7 Play.

Motorola rolled out the Moto G7 Plus, which has a 16MP dual camera system, AI and camera software to help you land good shots.

Motorola is also using Gorilla Glass on the front and back of the G7 and G7 Plus, which should improve durability. They've all got an FM radio built in along with those 3.5mm headset jacks that we all love as well. The Moto G7 Play's carrier partners are US Cellular, Boost, Virgin, and Republic Wireless. The G7 makes due with just a 3,000 mAh battery. Don't get it wrong, the G7 is not a flagship model but its features and specs are way enhanced than the G7 Play and G7 Power.

Motorola's Moto G7 is available beginning today in Brazil and Mexico, and it will launch within a month in the United States for $299. Around back there's a 12MP camera with LED flash and a fingerprint reader below it.

But heck, if that's not your speed, there's also a mode that automatically takes a photo when everyone (well, up to five people) smiles.

Alongside the standard G7, the leak also shows that Motorola could reveal a cheaper device called the G7 Power and much larger phone named the G7 Plus.

Another area the Motorola Moto G7 Plus is hoping to justify its Plus namesake is hardware. As such, I'm excited to try out the newer and likely even better Moto G7.

The Plus has NFC, while the G7 doesn't seem to - which is very odd. These four affordable phones include numerous core Motorola features we've come to love, like an ambient display and easy-to-master hand gestures. Motorola has crammed a 5000mAh battery into this device, which it says will get you up to three days of battery life on a single charge. The G7 will be released in the USA starting this spring and will be universally unlocked at Best Buy, B&H Photo, Walmart and on with subsequent availability at Google Fi, Republic Wireless and Ting.

The UK price is £239 and the handset will be released on March 1.
