Reviews for the Motorola Moto G7

84.7% Motorola Moto G7 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Compared to its predecessor, the Motorola Moto G7 reaches new heights with more performance and more storage. The price remains the same, which makes Motorola's new mid-range smartphone very attractive.

The Motorola Moto G7 offers solid performance, but its cameras and call quality leave room for improvement.

Moto has a winner with the G7. While the company’s more expensive phones tend to not justify their higher prices, the G series is a bastion of smartphone consistency and the G7 is the best Moto G yet.

80% Moto G7 review: The right price to pay
Source: Android Central English
In fact, the phone exceeded my expectations in almost every way. Thanks to its big, inviting screen, thoughtful design, ultra-reliable biometrics, and intuitive software, I'm happy to recommend it to anyone; that it's $300 is a bonus. That is, if you can live with software updates that happen infrequently at best.

90% Moto G7 review: Still the best bang for your buck
Source: Neowin English
And in fact, the Moto G7 is probably a worthy upgrade from the G6. There's a massive performance boost from this model, with its Snapdragon 632 chipset. The cool thing is that with the Moto G series, you actually can upgrade your phone every year without breaking the bank, and I think you'll be happy if you do just that this year.

The Moto G7 refines rather than redefines the company’s affordable phone offering, but despite its well-rounded approach, you'll find more bang for your buck elsewhere.

80% Motorola Moto G7 review: Is the standard model the one to buy?
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Moto G7 is a great budget phone that improves over its predecessor. Its problem is the G7 Plus which is £30 more and delivers faster charging, optical stabilisation for its better cameras, and a minor bump in processor - making it the phone to buy (after all, they both have the same design and screen sizes).

80% Motorola Moto G7, G7 Plus, G7 Power and G7 Play Review
Source: Phone Arena English
Overall, Moto is not doing anything extraordinary, but it does not need to: the new Moto phones are an evolution in terms of design with thinner bezels and more stylish looks, they are faster with the Snapdragon 6xx series of chips, and they work reliably, with a clean and likeable interface.

The Moto G7 seems like the default option in this year’s line-up of just about the most venerated affordable phone series, ever. It’s not the cheap one, the long-lasting one or the fancy, more powerful one.

At first glance, the Moto G7 looks like a much more expensive phone than it actually is. It may not offer top-end power or an incredible camera experience, but if you’re on the lookout for an affordable phone that works well and reliably, you’re sure be a fan of what Motorola’s G series flagship can do.

We had a particularly tough time populating the lists below, and that's probably a good thing - the Moto G7 doesn't really shine, yet it doesn't necessarily disappoint in any particular area. Isn't that what the definition of a successful midranger should be?

Hands on: Moto G7 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Moto G7 doesn’t rework the wheel. It refines rather than redefines the company’s affordable phone offering, giving buyers on a budget a surprisingly well-balanced phone with no clear hardware or software weakness. Hopefully, it will deliver on its promise when we more thoroughly test it for our full review.

Moto G7 family hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
What was once a single, decently specced and very affordable Moto G has morphed into a whole lineup of Moto G7s some 5+ years later. This latest generation caters to a wide array of users in the low-to-mid... midrange with prices varying from €150 to €300 and hardware to reflect those differences.

Motorola Moto G7 initial review: Is the standard model the one to buy?
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Motorola Moto G7 is a lovely looking device that marries a premium finish with a great price point. It might be £100 more than the original Moto G that launched all those years ago but this series has come a long way since then and the finish is far beyond its price point.

Motorola Moto G7 series hands-on: A fine family
Source: Android Authority English
Might I recommend these phones? Motorola has mastered the art of bringing value and appeal together. Not everyone can afford $1000 flagships. I am grateful that Motorola keeps all consumers in mind. The 2019 G7 series are solid, budget-friendly devices that anyone should be proud to carry around.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.
81.93%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
