The best Moto G7 deals

With the Moto G7 family, Motorola has a mid-range phone for everyone
Motorola today unveiled a raft of new Moto G smartphones. For example, all of them have a notch, but even the notch is not unified across the board. "Videos and images come to life on its u-design, 6.2" Max Vision Full HD+ display.
Before now, nearly all the features and design of the models have been in the open via leaks but let's still take a quick look at the specifications of the models. There is an 8-megapixel f/2.2 front shooter for capturing selfies.
All in all, these two phones are basically impossible to tell the difference between when it comes to the design - they also feature the same-sized display, the same footprint, and even the same camera setup.
Both Moto G7 and Moto G7 Plusalso support facial recognition along with physical fingerprint sensor. It'll supposedly be a flip phone like the original RAZR that remains one of the best-selling cell phones of all time, but with a new foldable OLED screen like the ones we'll soon see in next-gen phones from Samsung and Huawei. Squeezing three days of use out of a phone required some compromises, though: the Power's 6.2-inch screen is just as big as the G7's but it runs at 1520×720, so individual pixels will be more noticeable when you get really close to the display. The G7's specs are also slightly more reserved.
One of the positives about the Moto G7 Play is that you get the same core hardware as the Moto G7 and the Moto G7 power. It is followed by the G7 Power and its 3GB of RAM, while the Moto G7 and G7 Plus both come with 4GB of RAM.
All of the new G7 models offer storage expansion via a microSD card slot. It has a 6.2 screen with 720 x 1,520px resolution. Moto G7 Power retails at $249 while Moto G7 Play comes for $199. The Moto G7 Power will also be sold at T-Mobile, Verizon, Cricket, and a number of other carriers. It is equipped with a massive 5,000mAh battery, which is said to offer users 55 hours of battery life. The Moto G7 Plus offers 27-watt TurboPower charging, and the charger is included in the box. None of these devices have wireless charging or NFC though, so that's a bummer.
The range starts from £149 with the G7 Play, and maxes-out at £269 with G7 Plus.
Moto G7 series models- Moto G7, G7 Plus, G7 Play and G7 Power officially launched
Motorola rolled out the Moto G7 Plus, which has a 16MP dual camera system, AI and camera software to help you land good shots. In short, the Moto G7 Power's camera is the more capable - at least on paper.
Theres a single 12MP camera on the rear (f/2.0, 1.25µm) and an 8MP selfie camera on the wider notch on the front.
The Moto G7 Power is the battery focused smartphone of the quartet, with a 5,000mAh battery coupled with Motorola's Turbo Charging capabilities.
The moto g7 play is available today in Brazil and Mexico. The front facing camera is 8 megapixels with 1.12μm pixels and it also has a selfie flash in that notch there. The Moto G7 and G7 Plus will be available to purchase in Ceramic Black and Clear White colors.
These phones will go on sale in Brazil and Mexico starting from today and will be followed by India, Canada and United States starting from mid-February.
There's now no word on price but Motorola's G series have always been incredibly good value and we expect them to cost under £300. The G7 Power will then roll out to India in the coming weeks and to North America, Latin America and Asia Pacific in the coming months after that.
Designed as the most accessible and basic take on the family of phones, the G7 Play carries just a $200 price tag.
