In this review, we see more closely the top smartphone model, Motorola Moto G7 Plus, the most complete smartphone in terms of technical features and the most interesting due to its excellent quality/price ratio.

Motorola Moto G7 Plus package

Together with Moto G7 Plus, you will find 5V 3A and 9V 3A charger, the Type-C cable and a transparent cover in silicone and a pair of earphones.

Hardware & Connectivity

Motorola Moto G7 Plus as we said is the most complete smartphone of the lot with typical mid-range technical specifications and balanced hardware to offer good performance and low power consumption.
The processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 accompanied in operations by 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory, expandable via MicroSD. There is, in fact, a dedicated slot as well as two spaces for two nano SIMs, this product being a Dual Sim device. Completing the connectivity sector are Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band WiFi, TypeC port, NFC, FM radio and 3.5 mm audio jack port. The reception is good and the sound in the capsule is strong and clear, so no problem from this point of view.

The display is 6.2 inches interrupted at the top by a notch drop, perhaps excessively bulky, but still not too invasive. Inside the notch, there is a 12-megapixel camera while at the top there is an auricular capsule that also acts as a second speaker during music playback. On the back, instead, the photographic sector is composed of two sensors: one with 16 megapixels with aperture F/1.7 and the other with 5 megapixels for measuring the depth of field in portraits.

3000 mAh battery, water-repellent design (protected from splashes and rain) and senseless gaps complete this smartphone which only lacks wireless charging and certification against water and dust.

Ergonomics, Design & Materials

From an aesthetic point of view, it does not differ much from the Moto G6 Plus, starting from the blue color that is proposed again this year along with a red variant that in our opinion is more appealing. Of note is the reduction of the thick "porthole" of the rear camera that finally does not protrude too much and with the cover in the packaging aligns perfectly reducing the risk of scratches and breaks.
The back is slightly rounded favoring ergonomics and the sufficiently reactive fingerprint sensor is positioned immediately under the cameras. It is totally in glass (with Gorilla Glass 3 certification) with an aluminum frame, materials that definitely give this product a golden premium.

Display, Audio & Multimedia

On the front, the display is 6.2 inches with Full HD + resolution with IPS LCD technology. This is a good panel with bright and sufficiently realistic colors. For the price range, it is certainly excellent and even the blacks are well reproduced.
On the bottom there is a good quality speaker, it reproduces sufficiently high, medium and low and works in conjunction with the earpiece to return a stereo experience when the smartphone is positioned horizontally.
Thanks to the large display of quality and the combo of Motorola Moto G7 Plus speakers is ultimately a smartphone also voted to multimedia and gaming but be careful if squeezed too few frames if he loses too.


On the photographic sector, I find two novelties: the first is the 16-megapixel main sensor with F/1.7 aperture, the second is that it is optically stabilized. At front side is a 5-megapixel sensor that helps detect the depth of field in portraits. On the other hand, the sensor is 12 megapixel.

Overall there is a good upgrade: the photos are very good in good light conditions and good at night where it manages to better manage the noise. The stabilization optically certainly helps to eliminate the shake in both photographs and videos that are fluid both at 60 fps in FHD and at 30 fps in 4K.

Battery & Autonomy

The battery of Motorola Moto G7 Plus is 3000 mAh, about 200 mAh less than the previous model. If this could make you turn up your nose don't worry, autonomy is still good. It can easily complete 5 hours of on-screen usage during the typical day use, allowing you to arrive at night with tranquillity. On the other hand, evening recharging is a must to face the next day, so it cannot withstand the two full days of use.


At the software level, I find the usual combination of the winged house: Android 9 Pie in the stock version with minimal customization represented by the Moto application pre-installed in the system. Overall, a streamlined operating system that works well even under stress.
The features of the Moto application are numerous and you can decide whether to keep them enabled or disabled:
  • Moto Actions: lets you control your smartphone with simple gestures or lift the device to unlock it, use the volume keys to control music and volume, make a three-finger gesture to take a screenshot, activate the pill in favor of the navigation keys, activate the flashlight by shaking the smartphone or lift the device to silence it while receiving a call
  • Moto Display: to activate and deactivate the always on display
  • Moto Voice: to let the smartphone read any messages or calls received while driving.

Also, the Camera application is Motorola's proprietary with some dedicated features: portrait, crop, sample color (to highlight a particular color by converting the rest of the photograph to grayscale), cinematography (to animate part of a photograph), panorama, live filter, slow motion, time-lapse and YouTube live.
Overall it offers a great user experience.

In conclusion

Motorola Moto G7 Plus is, therefore, an excellent solution for those looking for an up-to-date and complete smartphone with a small budget. Available @ at a price of $199.99, it is already showing a good buy but initially, it will have to see it with numerous products on this range equally valid.
