About Motorola Moto G7 Plus - Review, Specs + more

The Motorola Moto G7 Plus is the top model in the G7 series from Motorola, and offers a wide range of features. It's not really much different on paper to the Moto One Vision, so don't forget to check that handset for monthly deals too. So let's find out which Motorola you should opt for.

Well-equipped mid-range smartphone

The Motorola Moto G7 Plus is priced in the middle segment, which is a rather bold choice as this sector is pretty crowded. It is aimed at users who look for good value and don't want to break the bank. But when you look at it for the first time, you'll be forgiven for thinking this is a premium-end smartphone - and if you're like us you will immediately notice the large 6.2-inch display.

Moto G7 Plus - Screen

The G7 Plus offers plenty of screen space for surfing and games. The Full HD resolution and associated pixel density of 406 ppi provide a detailed and sharp presentation. Scratch-resistant Gorilla Glass 3 protects the screen from the dangers of everyday life. Note that this isn't the latest Gorilla Glass, but you cannot expect everything on a lower-end smartphone.

As with many devices today, the display frame is extremely slim. At the top there is a small, drop-shaped notch for the front camera.

It's great that Motorola have packed this little phone with loads of features - of particular note is the tech equipment, and UI which comes pre-installed with Android 9.0 Pie. The operating system , at least for the foreseeable future, will come with all necessary updates and security features. It also has a large selection of apps and games that you can download from the Play Store.

A fingerprint sensor and face recognition are responsible for security and complete the setup, you can of course use the older methods like PIN Numbers to lock the screen though. 

Moto G7 Plus - Battery

The built-in 3000 mAh battery should easily last for the whole day but when it does expire then the battery is recharged very quickly thanks to Quick Charge 4.0. According to this review, the battery is a bit of a letdown when compared to others in the G7 range.

With the added expense and a more advanced chip, you’d expect the Moto G7 Plus to have the edge over the normal Moto G7 in terms of performance, but this doesn’t turn out to be the case. Perhaps this is to be expected. The octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 inside the Moto G7 Plus has the same 1.8GHz clock speed as the Snapdragon in the Moto G7, and both run on 4GB RAM.

Either way, the Moto G7 Plus barely outdid the Moto G7 in our benchmarks, achieving a multi-core CPU speed of 4,869 in the Geekbench 4 test whereas the Moto G7 reached 4,779 – a negligible difference.

Superb photos thanks to the stabilised cam

As usual with many smartphones out today, the rear of the Motorola Moto G7 Plus has a dual camera. The main camera resolves to 16 megapixels and also works in tandem with the other 5-megapixel camera, which is responsible for depth effects. So in case you hadn't notice, the camera system here is significantly higher resolution and higher-spec than in the other models of the G7 series, hence the price (more on that later).

The G7 Plus provides very sharp 4K videos and even comes with a RAW function, bokeh mode and additional features for continuous shooting and panoramic shots. The front camera takes selfies with 12 megapixels,  and has in addition to full HDR , a rather face-beautifer function. Neat, but rather gimmicky, although it gives you an idea of what market this is aimed at. 

To make sure you always have enough storage space, Motorola have decided that you can easily expand the 64 GB flash memory. In the existing slot is a micro-SD memory card with up to 512 GB of space.

Fast surfing with WLAN.ac and LTE

As you'd expect, the G7 Plus has modern network technologies on board, but of course no 5G at this price. Thanks to dualband and 802.11ac support, you can surf very fast via the the WLAN connection, and 4G isn't actually that bad anyway - in the UK you can get up to 100 Mbps on the go.

Bluetooth 5.0 and support for NFC compliment the list of options, and  in addition to the USB Type-C connector, there is also a classic 3.5 mm jack connector for headphones and headsets.

Moto G7 Plus - Conclusion

The Motorola Moto G7 Plus is a medium-priced model with a medium spec to match. It doesn't break any new ground, but that isn't always a bad thing. It does what it says on the tin.

And with a very good price-performance ratio, the G7 Plus comes with a modern operating system that is versatile. Its large display is high-resolution and the core components around the 8-core processor and 4GB of RAM promise good performance.

This also applies to the dual camera system on the rear, which allows for sharp and detailed photos and videos. The easily expandable memory, the face recognition as well as the fast WLAN and LTE technology complete the equipment.

The problem for the Moto G7 Plus is that for only about £20 more, you can get the rather brilliant Xiaomi Pocophone F1, and in that sense, the Motorola just cannot compete - it does try, though, to give it its due.
