Motorola has long been known for making great budget phones, and now they’re back in the game with the Moto g7 and the g7 plus, these two phones look super similar to each other and they have pretty similar specs .
let’s start with the parallels, before we get to the differences, first the boxes themselves are really similar, you’ll find a cable, wall adapter and see-through case in each .
the Moto G7 brethren have rounded aluminum backs with a mirror finish that’s very pretty if you ignore the markings on the lower half of the phones, and the microphone dots that are infuriatingly not centered .

they’re both a little slippery and absolute fingerprint magnets, so you also might want to use the cases that they come with, the power buttons are a little less clicky than we’d like but the volume buttons feel pretty satisfying .
sign wise the biggest differences are a slightly more ease camera bump on the Moto G7 and the color options, the indigo and black versions that we have are pretty subtle and it’s rather easy to mistake one for the other .
the Moto G7 siblings are splash resistant and Spartan Gorilla Glass 3 on the front, so while the phones are well-constructed you can’t full-on abuse the poor things .
they have Full HD screens with a tall 19:9 aspect ratio and a good pixel density, both phones sport not so small water droplet notches there are no options to hide them so you’ll have a small cutout on your screen if you full screen your videos .
both phones have 3000 milliamp hour batteries, but we still need to run a few tests to see which of the two has a better battery life, long live the jack at least on these phones .
with either device you’ll get up to 64 gigabytes of on-board storage and an expandable card slot, the Moto G7 phones have a nearly stock version of Android Pi and you’ll find a zero bloatware on here .
there’s a moto menu that offers a few shortcuts and the fil navigation is slightly more customized, but otherwise everything is pure Google .
however before you get too excited you should know that they aren’t part of the Android 1 program, so they’ll probably only be updated to Android cube .
like I said these phones are super similar, but this is where the similarities end, both phones have USB C ports but only the plus supports 27 watt fast charging in quick charge for, the Moto G7 on the other hand only allows up to 15 watt charging .
the Moto G7 Plus a stereo speakers, while you have to make deal with the single bottom firing one on the Moto G7 .
unsurprisingly the g7 Plus has a slightly faster Snapdragon 636 chipset compared to the Snapdragon 632 of the Moto G7 ,but it remains to be seen just how much faster it really is .
in terms of the cameras the plus definitely has a leg up over the regular Moto G7, while both phones have five megapixel depth sensors the Moto G7 Plus has a 16 megapixel main camera with the wider F 1.7 aperture, while the Moto G7 has a 12 megapixel main camera with an F 1.8 aperture .
on the selfie side of things, the plus once again has a better camera setup with the 12 megapixel shooter in comparison to the g7’s 8 megapixel one, it also supports 14 video capture while the g7 only allows up to full HD .
the moto G7 siblings are looking like a really good pair of mid Rangers, the g7 Plus is sold for around 50 bucks more than the g7, but it’ll take some more testing to see whether the specs that are different really matter so much when you’re using the phones .
if you have any other questions leave them in the comments below and I’ll try to get to them in the full review .
