Review Motorola Moto G7 Plus
Motorola Moto G7 Plus is basicly a great phone – for the price it is actually one of the best phones at all and can in many ways compete with phones that are 2-3 times more expensive. Moto G7 Plus might not have the same specs as Samsung Galaxy S10 but in reality most people will be more than happy with the quality when we talk design, display, camera, user friendliness, navigation speed, antenna quality.
Design and display
So – design and display. Moto G7 Plus looks like a high end phone build glass with an aluminium frame. Its splash-resistent – so don’t take it with you in the shower. The screen is 6,2 inch big with full HD resolution and 19:9 ratio.
The phone simply looks good and feels good.
The UI is as stock Android as possible with only a few, small but handy stuff from Motorola – for example the possibility to ativate the flash by shaking you hand. The navigation speed is from start fine – but can be great if you use this simple tip: go into Settings > Accessibility. scroll down to remove animations. Animations slow down the navigation speed when you scroll around on you phone – by removing animations it is simply much speedier.
Camera and antenna
The dual camera on the phone is fine in most situations with great picture quality: nice colors, fine sharpness. For the price is hard to find a better camera on a phone.
The antenna quality is way better than on any iPhone and many other expensive Android phones. Good antenna quality means realible connection to the mobile network which of course is very important for all – especially in rural areas – and it also has the nice side effect that the phone doesn’t need to use so much power to stay connected which again has a positive effect on batterylife. The antenna quality on Moto G7 Plus is not fantastic but its fine – which is …fine..
Now for something really great: a 27w speed charger is in the box when you buy the phone. With this you can charge Moto G7 Plus from 0-100 percent in just around 55 minutes – that is impressive!
- The price for Moto G7 Plus is around 360 dollars or 300 euros. With a phone that is as great as this phone that is an impressive price. And its a phone that have only a very few drawbacks.
- The camera do struggle a bit in low light conditions – the colors ar fine, but it has some problems with sharpness in the right areas.
- The battery capacity is 3.000 mah – a bit to low for a phone with a 6,2” screen.
In my opinion the Moto G7 Plus is the go to phone when you want to combine high quality with a low price but here are of course alternatives.
- LG V30
- Huawei P20 lite
- Samsung Galaxy A6 Plus
Moto G7 Plus is not as great a phone as Samsung Galaxy S10 or Huawei Mate 20 Pro – those two phones are the best right now. But: They are not that much better than Moto G7 Plus and this phone is at least 500 dollars cheaper. If you are looking for a phone with great quality for a great price – this is the phone you should choose right now.
