Moto G7 Reviews:
Motorola on Thursday unveiled the new Moto G7-series of smartphones at an event in Brazil. Carrying features like all-day battery life and improved camera performance, the Moto G7 lineup includes Moto G7, Moto G7 Plus, Moto G7 Play, and Moto G7 Power smartphones. The G7-series phones come at an interesting time for the company, as Motorola and its owner Lenovo struggle to make a dent in the smartphone market, which is increasingly dominated by the likes of Huawei, Samsung, Apple, and Xiaomi.
The Moto G7-Series is one of the first major smartphone-related announcements of the year, as the consumers await Mobile World Congress 2019, where most of the phone manufacturers will be showing off their wares. South Korean tech giant Samsung, which is attempting a comeback in the affordable smartphone segment, had also recently launched its India-first smartphones – Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M10. The Galaxy M-series phones come with Infinity-V screens and dual-camera setup. These two Samsung phones and other upcoming Galaxy M-Series offerings will go head-to-head with the Moto G7 smartphones in various markets around the world.
The Moto G7 Plus is the most powerful G-phone yet, but its calling in life is photography. It features a 16+5MP dual camera on the back optimized for low-light shooting.
The 16MP sensor has large 1.22µm pixels, bright f/1.7 aperture and optical image stabilization for photos, plus electronic stabilization and hyperlapse mode for video. There’s a 12MP selfie camera with portrait and group selfie modes.
AI-powered features like Smart Composition and Auto-Smile capture will help you get the best shot. The rear camera can record 4K video at 30fps and 1080p at 30/60/120fps. The 5MP module is a depth sensor for that creamy bokkeh in your portrait shots.
The G7 Plus is powered by a Snapdragon 636 chipset, which features four Cortex-A73-derived Kryo 260 Gold cores plus four A53-based cores. It’s paired with 3GB of RAM and 64GB storage (expandable with microSD cards up to 512GB). It goes without saying that it runs stock Android 9 Pie.
Motorola is announcing four devices in total: the $199 G7 Play, the $249 G7 Power, the $299 Moto G7, and the £299 G7 Plus (this model isn’t coming to the US).
The cheaper three models share the same Snapdragon 632 processor this time around, which should provide a 50 – 60 percent performance boost (and last gen’s models were no slouches). The two cheaper models come with plastic bodies, while the more expensive one’s upgrade to a Gorilla Glass back.
The G7 Play is the cheapest of the models and features a 5.7-inch HD+ display (1520×720), 2GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable storage. A 3,000 mAh battery should provide 48 hours of battery life, and it has a single 13MP F2.0 camera on the rear.
The G7 Power brings a 6.2-inch HD+ display with an iPhone X-like notch, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Its main selling point, however, is the massive 5,000 mAh battery. That’s about the biggest battery I’ve seen on a mainstream phone, and Motorola says it should provide 3 days of battery life. The camera is the same as on the G7 Play.
