Everything you need to know about the Moto G7 series!


Say hello to Motorola’s four budget champs of 2019.

Ever since the first Moto G was released all the way back in 2013, Motorola’s G series of smartphones has been one of the go-to options for people that want a phone that looks great and performs well while spending a fraction of what typical flagships cost.

For 2019, Motorola is returning with the Moto G7 lineup and launching more G phones at once than ever before.

Whether you’re looking for official specs, our initial impressions of the phones, or anything else, here’s everything you need to know!

Check out our hands-on coverage

We need a bit more time to test the new Moto G7 devices before delivering a full review, but in the meantime, we have a hands-on article you should absolutely check out.

AC‘s Daniel Bader had a chance to use the entire G7 series, so if you want to see what the phones look like in-person and get a detailed breakdown of each phone, it’s something I highly recommend reading.

Moto G7, G7 Power and G7 Play Hands-on: Why even buy an expensive phone anymore?

There are four different models to choose from

The Moto G7 series consists of four different phones. In order of least to most expensive/powerful, they include:

  • Moto G7 Play
  • Moto G7 Power
  • Moto G7
  • Moto G7 Plus

The G7 Play is clearly at the bottom of the barrel and delivers pretty basic specifications and features for less than $200. As the name suggests for the G7 Power, this is a phone designed around delivering unrivaled battery life.

Motorola’s base G7 falls in the middle of everything else with a nicer design, a smaller notch, and improved performance.

Lastly, the G7 Plus aims to deliver much-improved cameras, stereo speakers, and incredibly fast 27W charging.

Here are the specs

Moto G phones never have the most impressive specifications, but they’re good enough to deliver an experience that’s still enjoyable for the end user.

Here’s a quick snapshot of what we have to look forward to with the Moto G7 lineup.

Unfortunately, the Moto G7 Plus will not be making its way to the United States.
