Design

When I first saw the Moto G7, I noticed a striking resemblance between the device and its predecessor the Moto G6, though there are some couple of changes that were made. The back of the Moto G7 is well curved on both sides, so it enters and comfortably sits right in your hand.

On the back of the Moto G7, you will find the stocked out camera, and below it, you will find the fingerprint scanner, which is not difficult to locate with your fingers. When you turn over to the right-hand side of this device, you will see the volume rocker seated close to the power button. Meanwhile,e the left-hand side didn’t come in with anything.

On edge at the top of this device, you will see the SIM card tray, while the bottom of this device is serving as a home for a lot of its technology. On the left-hand side of this device,e you will find the USB-C port for charging and data transfer and the phone’s single speaker next to it.

Meanwhile, the right-hand also house our beloved 3.5mm headphone jack. This device also comes in with a splash resistance, not necessarily a water resistance. Most of the smartphone’s specs are borrowed from the Moto G6.

The Moto G7 features a 6.2-inch display with an impressive 81% screen-to-body ratio and an aspect ratio. It’s 19:9. The Moto G7 features a Full HD+ resolution at 1080 x 2270 pixels.

Camera

When it comes to the camera of this device, it seems this device has a lot to offer. There is dual primary camera setup on the Moto G7, which comprises of a 12 MP camera sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, 1.25µm, PDAF. Meanwhile, the second primary camera offers a 5 MP camera sensor accompanied by an f/2.2 aperture dedicated for the depth sensor.

In good light, the cameras offer enough details which are very bright and clear, though you don’t expect it to like that of the Google Pixel 3. Don’t get it twisted; things are all not that rosy as you think because in low-light condition, the camera’s photos become a bit grainier and processing becomes visible.

The front of this device holds the single selfie camera of 8 MP, 1.12µm. Meanwhile, all the cameras on this Moto G7 support a 4K video recording alongside with the electronic image stabilization, which was used to compensate the camera for the absence of the OIS.

Performance

This is where the apparent improvement comes in, the performance of the Moto G7. But under the hood, there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 chipset powering the Moto G7, though it may not be compared with trending flagship smartphones, you virtually do anything with this device.

The chipset in this device is assisted by a robust 4GB of RAM, while for the internal storage we have just one version which is the 64GB model. Most people complained the room might not be enough for them; luckily this smartphone supports storage expansion of up to 512 GB (dedicated slot) using the microSD.

The Moto G7 runs on the latest Android 9 Pie OS, and it is well fitted into this smartphone. You will be able to get used to this smartphone easily because Moto usually doesn’t do much to their software. We were able to run all the games and apps we wanted.

Battery

Housing this device is a powerful 3,000mAh battery cell which seems to be moderate; nevertheless, this battery was able to carry us all through the day with an extra 10% battery juice on this device.

It was only on a few occasions the battery died around after 9 pm, and this was due to a massive battery usage like a series of movies that was streamed and more.

We ran our test where we play a 90-minute video clip with brightness up to full and connectivity options on, and we found the phone dropped 22%. That’s not a great result, but it’s the same we saw from the Moto G7 Plus.

Good News! The battery of the Moto G7 supports a fast-charging technology using the USB-C slot at the bottom of this smartphone. The fast charging tech was able to offer us 85% extra battery juice within 1 hour. Notwithstanding, there was no wireless charging technology featured on this smartphone.
