Case, equipment and operation - advantages and disadvantages compared to the sister model

Only one letter separates Motorola's Moto E7 Power from the Moto E7i Power and at the same time the models look confusingly similar. We tested the Moto E7i Power and found it to be a decent smartphone in the entry-level segment. However, there are differences in the SoC, storage configuration, and price that make it interesting to take a separate look at the Moto E7 Power.

The casing in red or blue is IP52-certified, so it is quite well protected against dust and also against splashing water. The matte finish of the casing also looks quite high-quality in the Moto E7 Power. In terms of weight, the 200 gram (~7 oz) Moto E7 Power is typical, but it is not a light smartphone either.

With 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of mass storage, both values have doubled when compared with the Moto E7i Power. In return, the price of just under 130 Euros (~$155) is also significantly higher for the Moto E7 Power. However, modern Bluetooth 5.0 is also available. Still, the smartphone cannot keep up with the sister model in terms of Wi-Fi speed. It proves to be very slow in our test with the reference router Netgear Nighthawk AX12.

Both smartphones are on a similar level when writing and reading our reference microSD Angelbird V60: Overall, it is quite fast, but not with top transfer rates.

Cameras - Dedicated macro lens on the Moto E7 Power

Recording front camera
Recording front camera

In terms of camera equipment, compared to the Moto E7i Power, nothing has changed: There is still a 13-megapixel lens as the main camera and a 2-megapixel macro camera that can be used in a special mode.

The picture quality has also hardly changed: Details are still displayed quite coarsely and bright areas are quickly outshined. The sky in the surroundings picture looks a bit grainy, but the color reproduction is quite OK. Overall, you can hardly expect more for so little money, and considering the even worse cameras in some smartphones of the price range, the Moto E7 Power does a decent job here.

Hardly anything can be recognized in the camera's pictures in very low light. If there is at least a small light source in the picture, the autofocus obviously struggles to find the right focus, but some details are still shown.

Videos can be recorded in 1080p and 30 fps at most, and you should not expect fast reactions from the brightness adjustment and the autofocus, but the level of detail is okay for the price range.

The display of the Moto E7 Power is somewhat unevenly illuminated and is generally quite dark: We measured an average of 320 cd/m². The IPS panel's black value of 0.24 cd/m² is okay, so the contrast ratio is decent.

We did not notice any PWM, which is very pleasing. However, the color reproduction is sometimes very inaccurate, especially in bright blues.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
34 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 88 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 84 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15324 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life - more power for the Moto phone

Thanks to the MediaTek Helio G25 the Moto E7 Power has quite a bit more performance. The Moto smartphone without the "i" is also much faster in terms of graphics performance. In the class comparison, it is only in a middle place, the Nokia 3.4 for example, can clearly surpass it again.

You can navigate through the system fairly smoothly in everyday use, but more complex tasks quickly overtax the smartphone. The memory is at least considerably faster than in the sister model and on par with the class.

The smartphone does not get particularly warm under load, so you do not have to worry about overheating even in summer. The speaker at the back hardly offers low frequencies in the sound. The overemphasized trebles can be annoying at high volumes, but the sound is okay at medium volumes. Clear sound is available via 3.5 mm jack or Bluetooth connection.

Several days of use away from the mains? No problem with the 5,000 mAh battery of the Moto E7 Power, which lasted well over 18 hours in our Wi-Fi test. The maximum charging power is 10 watts. Depending on the charge status, you will have to plan for more than 2 hours when you want to fully charge the smartphone.

Verdict - A clone that does a lot better

In review: Motorola Moto E7 Power
In review: Motorola Moto E7 Power

At first glance, the Moto E7 Power seems to be a clone of the E7i Power and in terms of camera, casing and battery that is certainly true.

However, there are subtle differences that justify the surcharge of almost 30 Euros (~$36): More working and mass storage, which is also considerably faster. More modern Bluetooth and a somewhat faster SoC with more graphics power are on board.

Users who do not have to worry too much about money can certainly treat themselves to the upgrade. The larger storage alone is a blessing. However, there are also slight drawbacks: The Wi-Fi is still a bit slower and the smartphone does not last quite as long on a high level.

Motorola's Moto E7 Power is a cheap phone with a lot of stamina, but the dark screen is no joy.

The speaker sound, the inaccurate color reproduction, and the screen's low brightness are negative. However, users looking for a smartphone for 130 Euros (~$155) will probably have to live with such limitations. Overall, the Moto E7 Power is a solid phone in its price range.

Price and availability

The Motorola Moto E7 Power is not available from all major online retailers, but it is available from the store of Motorola's parent company Lenovo for 129 Euros (~$154). At Amazon the smartphone is also available from some retailers.
