The best Moto G7 deals
Recent entries into the budget smartphone space have been welcome in a market dominated by handsets costing close to $1,000, and Motorola's new budget line of G7 handsets aim to provide high-end specs without breaking the bank. We've also made Three Finger Screenshot even better, so you can now take screenshots longer than your screen and edit them right then and there.
Before now, nearly all the features and design of the models have been in the open via leaks but let's still take a quick look at the specifications of the models.
All three phones will also come with essentially a stock implementation of Android 9 Pie out of the box, headphone jacks, and tweaked camera apps that support several different shooting modes that let you capture cinemagraphs (similar to what we saw on the LG V40), hyperlapse videos, photos with selective colours, and even special high-res shots that combine multiple frames into a single image to help avoid the pitfalls of traditional digital zoom. As for optics, the G7 Play features a 13MP primary and an 8MP selfie cameras.
Below the dual-camera is the circular fingerprint scanner. This handset too features dual rear camera system. 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. Still, the Moto G7 should have good battery life because its chip and display consume less power than those on top Android models.
The Motorola G7 Power is called the "Power" because of its huge battery.
The lineup, shown off on Thursday ahead of the MWC rush later this month, comprises the Moto G7, Moto G7 Plus, Moto G7 Power and Moto G7 Play. You do get the same 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage memory configuration, though. The G7 still features a Snapdragon 632 chipset but it is paired with 4GB of RAM while there is 64GB of expandable storage onboard. The moto g7 power will be available from mid- February throughout Europe. It only has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, but it does support a microSD card for storage expansion.
The Moto G7 boasts of a 6.24-inch Full HD+ screen which means a resolution of 1080×2270 pixels on a Max Vision display. The product description says the Moto G7 offers " elegant design, premium performance" and " all day battery life".
The Moto G7 features contoured Gorilla Glass body, tiny bezels and a rounded teardrop-shaped cut out at the top. None of these devices have wireless charging or NFC though, so that's a bummer.
The display is crisp enough and large for such a low resolution, but be forewarned: the Moto G7 Power has a notch, and it's noticeable. In short, the Moto G7 Power's camera is the more capable - at least on paper.
For taking photos, the Moto G7 sports an 8-megapixel camera on the front for taking selfies and a dual-camera arrangement on the rear consisting of a 12-megapixel main sensor and a 5-megapixel depth sensor, with LED flash and phase detection autofocus. In contrast, the Moto G7 Plus makes use of 16-megapixel (f/1.7 aperture, 1.22um pixel size, OIS) and 5-megapixel (depth sensor) cameras. Moto G7 has an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
