1. All battery life claims are approximate and based on an average user profile that includes both usage and standby.
2. Battery must be substantially depleted; charging rate slows as charging progresses.
3. Actual available capacity of user storage and internal memory is less because of the operating system, software and other functions which utilise part of this capacity. The available capacity may change with software updates.

Day one: extremely impressed. I had concerns about the size and weight of the phone, but it's slimmer and lighter than I thought it would be. Also easy to use with being quite narrow, yet still benefits from the massive screen. The included case is fine and still doesn't make the phone too massive, though it does make the power and volume buttons a little stiff to use so maybe look for an alternative if that bothers you. Would really benefit from including a screen protector in the box.
The black plastic is a fingerprint magnet, but easy to wipe clean with a sleeve.
The power button and volume rocker are a tad too high up the phone for my liking. The volume rocker is almost at the top of the phone and very difficult to operate one handed. If they had been moved down so that the 'volume up' was where the 'volume down' sits, this would have been much better. Not a huge issue though.
The notch isn't too imposing. When watching videos on YouTube you can zoom in or out to hide the notch and either is fine. Screen quality is also better than expected. I was concerned about the 720p but no reason to be, it looks great.
One thing that does irritate me is that you can't lock the screen with the fingerprint sensor, you have to press the power button. I hope this can and will be introduced via an update as it's really annoying. Coming from other phones in this series it is something I'm very used to and felt intuitive. This is definitely my biggest gripe with the phone.
The Moto actions are fine as ever. Mostly unused but the torch karate chop is amazing. I use this all the time, so much so that I try to use it on non-moto phones.
The one bar nav is ok too. Don't know if it's an improvement over just having buttons but will see how quickly I can adapt to it. Have ended up switching back and forth, as Android 9 hasn't really optimised for the 3 button system either. (UPDATE: stuck with the one bar nav for a week and quite used to it now. Still doesn't feel like an improvement to the buttons though).
Camera is fine. Some review sites say it's great, some say it's awful. I think it's ok, it takes decent quality pictures and is a little slow, but not irritatingly slow. I have an active toddler and still manage to get photos of him. All this dual camera business is a bit of a gimmick I think. If you really want top quality pics, get a camera.
Battery is obviously amazing. Even at the 'slow end' of charging, it's quick. Charged from 66% to full in no time at all. Left it on standby whilst I slept and woke up 6 hours later with 100% battery. 1 1/2 hours later I'm at 96% after watching around 45 mins of video, which drained it, then it hasn't budged since and I've been faffing with the settings so been in constant use. (UPDATE: after a week, this is really noticeable. I've barely had to charge the phone and have found I'm much more comfortable watching videos, using sat nav, listening to podcasts etc. as I don't have that nagging thought of when it might die. Don't think I've been below 50% yet!)
Battery Saver mode really does help the battery eek out longer, and restricts some operations to do so, but I haven't figured out quite what yet.
Not keen on Android 9. The horizontal tiles on recent apps take some getting used to, I find them much harder to operate quickly with one hand. Also, the "clear all" only appears at the 'far end' so you have to scroll though all your open tabs to clear them. This is the second most frustrating thing about the phone. The pull down menu is OK but the settings shortcut is now really small and too far down. Also, since you lose some notification bar due to the notch, it would be great if you could choose what went where. The battery optimisation, storage sorting, and digital wellbeing things all seem great but not yet looked at any of it in depth.
(UPDATE: you can access the battery info by tapping on the battery icon and this is really useful. You can do this with the clock too but pretty useless if you keep a widget on your home screen.)
Wish you could edit the screensaver clock more than just analogue/digital. There is a blue ring around which indicates battery life, but it also tells you the percentage. Seems needless having both.
Phone feels very fast to operate. I don't really play games so can't attest to that, but everything else runs smooth and sharp. Handles a fair whack at the same time and hasn't stuttered a blink so far. Some reviewers have commented on the poor internet/wifi connection. I can't say I've really noticed too much. I live in a poor signal area - even the wifi struggles in Cumbria but this phone seems to be handling itself just fine.
(UPDATE: after a week of heavy usage, it hasn't felt sluggish even once)
Just to be clear, no NFC on the UK version.
Overall very pleased so far, highly recommended. Hopefully Android 9 will undergo some overhaul because if not then that has heavily worsened this suite of phones. If it hadn't been for that, this would have been my favourite ever device.
(UPDATE: Still the case. Great phone, but still wish you could lock with fingerprint sensor, and switch back to vertical tiles on recent menu).
TLDR; if you're looking for the best 'bang for your buck' device, yet still want a smart and sleek smartphone, any of the G7 range offer great value, with the G7 Play offering the best value for money*. However, if you can stretch your budget to the higher models, you'll get a sleeker design, an improved display, a better camera set-up and a faster processor*, and these features are more than worth the slightly higher price for many users.
- Exceptionally well rounded device for the money
- G7 + G7 Plus have sleek and solid construction (looks more expensive than it is)
- Fast charging and USB-C (rare at price point)
- Camera set-up is good for the price
- Clean and simple OS is easy to navigate
- Fingerprint reader and face recognition are reliable and snappy
- 'Moto Actions' (see picture) can be extremely useful for some
- Higher models (G7 & G7 Plus) both feature NFC** (Google Pay, etc)
- No wireless charging
- No 'stand-out' features compared to competition*
- Lots of competition at this price point
- G7 Play & G7 Power have plastic-heavy builds
**(- Lower models (G7 Play & G7 Power) do not feature NFC (Google Pay, etc))
*- G7 Plus - Most expensive (still good value), highest specs (16+5mp rear cameras, 1080p display), fastest processor (Snapdragon 636), fastest charging (27w 'TurboPower'), Gorilla Glass 3 back and front gives a more premium design
- G7 - Best option if you want a balance between specifications/hardware and battery life (1080p display, 12+5mp rear cameras, 15w 'TurboPower', Snapdragon 632), Gorilla Glass 3 back and front gives a more premium design
- G7 Power - Best battery life (huge 5000mAh battery, 18w 'TurboPower'), comparatively worse display (720p), same processor as G7 (Snapdragon 632), bulkiest device, plastic construction rather than Gorilla Glass, 12mp single camera sensor
- G7 Play - Cheapest, best value, but lacks the performance of higher models (720p display, no 'TurboPower' fast charging), same processor as the G7 (Snapdragon 632), plastic construction rather than Gorilla Glass, 13mp single camera sensor
Motorola's G series smartphones have always offered a great value alternative to both the very expensive 'flagship' smartphones, as well as the very low end budget smartphones, and the G7 is yet another great 'bang for your buck' smartphone. If you've never owned or never thought about owning a flagship smartphone (~£600+), the Moto G7 is a truly excellent value, relatively inexpensive device. However, if have owned any flagship devices, then don't let the over zealous reviewers fool you, this doesn't come close to those, but that's exactly why they're 3 times the price..
The solid construction and smart, sleek design are well additions to the Moto G series, as up to now they've always looked like a budget device. However, all of the G7 models feature Gorilla Glass 3 front and back, and a chrome painted band/frame (which is actually plastic), which combine to give the G7 a much more elegant and premium look and feel compared to previous models.
As you can see in the images I've attached, the power button is textured, whereas the volume buttons are not, meaning it's easy to feel which button is which when you're fumbling around in your pocket or in the dark. My personal preference is to have the power button and the volume buttons on different sides of a smartphone, but if they're on the same side, having textured buttons at least makes it easier to differentiate between them.
As with most new smartphones, the G7 attempts to shrink the bezels by sporting a 'notch' cutout for the front-facing camera. Whether you love them or hate them, notches are here to stay for while, and the G7's notch is a much sleeker implementation than some of the infamously ugly notches (Pixel/iPhone...), due to its soft edges and how it barely protrudes into on-screen content.
Housed within the small notch is the front-facing camera, which, whilst only 720p, can be used as an unlocking method due to face recognition, which works surprisingly fast. If you're not a fan of the relatively insecure face-unlock, the even faster and more reliable fingerprint scanner can be used, and patterns and passwords can also be set up, granting you numerous ways to keep your phone secure.
The camera set-up for each device is different (see my rough device break down/comparison above), and all perform adequately well for their respective price-points. For most users, the camera set-up will be perfectly fine, and capture just enough clarity colour accuracy and depth to capture those special moments, but anyone downgrading from a higher end device will miss the features and finesse which the flagships can offer.
Whilst the G7 is good at just about everything it doesn't stand-out in a particular field either. Whilst a lot of other devices at this price point may not be as well-rounded, they often excel in a certain field (camera/display, etc). What this means is that unless you're looking for a specific feature/specification at this price point, the G7 is a solid and reliable performer across the board. Additionally, its slight price increase from the G6 is more than justified, due to its more modern, upmarket design and more powerful hardware.
I got it as my G5 didn't have it.
Totally gutted and disappointed.
Single biggest complaint so far, and it is a big one. The charging port is larger than a standard micro USB, so I will need to take this charger with me when I travel, and that's just a faff!
Is it a needless change?
I don't know, but I really wish Motorola hadn't done that. Buggers...
