Moto G7 Power review

The camera isn’t as powerful as its siblings, the G7, G7 Play and G7 Plus — but that’s the trade-off for its impressive battery.

The Moto G7 Power is on sale worldwide, with a price tag of $249 / £179 (around AU$330). It comes in two configurations, and which one you can get depends where you live – it comes with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage in the US but 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage in the UK.  That price tag makes it the second-cheapest G7 phone – the G7 Play is even cheaper at $199 / £149 (roughly AU$280), while both the G7 and G7 Plus are a little pricier.  

The Moto G7 Power sits comfortably among similar big-battery budget phones in terms of price, with the Moto E5 Plus costing $70 / £54 less and the Lenovo P2 costing around £25 / £20 more upon release (although the latter had a slightly bigger battery). The Moto G7 Power has a slightly better chipset than those two, however, as we’ll get into.

The Moto G7 Power is a bulky device. Its 159.43mm x 76mm size, 9.3mm thickness and nearly 200g weight make it look and feel like a chunky handset – and it feels a little awkward to use because of it.   If you have small hands it’ll be hard to reach all corners of the screen, and pulling the device out of a pocket or using it while walking feels a little more cumbersome than we’d like.

The plastic back of the device doesn’t feel as impressive or protective as the Gorilla Glass of the G7 and G7 Plus, but at least it feels solid enough to be in no danger if you drop it. The Moto G7 Power comes with a thick plastic case too, for added protection, which does increase the size of the device but also provides it with some needed grip.
