Motorola Moto G7 Plus review: Moto G7 Plus: the mid-range 2019 to beat

That its processor does not deceive you: the Moto G7 Plus wants to be the quintessential mid-range cell phone for this year, and everything seems to indicate that it will achieve it.

With its first Moto G models, Motorola has always been one of the best deals to attract consumers looking for a mid-range. In more recent years and editions, the company has failed between a bad mix of features and little relevant design, and also in the face of fierce competition from Chinese manufacturers offering the same (or better) at a lower price.

For this year, the Moto G7 Plus has enough to do what its last two predecessors had not achieved: stand out.

See the beautiful and vibrant Moto G7 Plus.

With pleasure and inevitably start talking about how incredible the Moto G7 Plus is visually, especially seen from the rear.

The G7 Plus has an incredible design made of glass both front and back and with a continuous contour of the same glass of the back. The design in the Moto G7 Plus is the clear maturity of a design in which glass predominates and we began to see with the Moto X4 and since then began to reach newer cell phones of the brand.

There is no more to say: the Moto G7 Plus is beautiful. This phone has two versions, one in dark blue (Motorola calls it code) and another in red, which is the version we have for the analysis.

The red in the Moto G7 Plus is vibrant, striking and variant. The tone may change if you see it in backlight, if you see it in direct light or if you see it in a low-light scene. The shade of red you can see goes from the saturated color of a cherry, to the red of a Ferrari chest.

If you are going to buy the Moto G7 Plus, do it in this version even if you don't like the flashy tones. I am a person with black or sober phones, but the red G7 Plus is inevitable.

Of course, always load a microfiber towel to constantly clean the back of your phone, because it is a fingerprint magnet and as it is very beautiful, it is ruined a bit when it gets dirty by the natural sweat of the hands or by the mere prints of your fingers

Of course, nothing is perfect and the Moto G7 Plus design is not perfect either. There are certain aspects of the design in the Moto G7 Plus that do not quite convince me, the first one is the type of eyebrow or the lengeta (notch) design that Motorola placed on this cell phone and the rest of the G7. We find a drop eyebrow in the upper part of the screen, so the eyebrow only surrounds the only front camera.

Not only am I in favor of the eyebrow that is rectangular (as in the Motorola One), but much of the software on the cell phone, both from Motorola and Google and from third parties, is not optimized for the eyebrow drop, so in Many times you see a black bar on the sides of the eyebrow when you are using an application that is not compatible with this type of eyebrow. This makes the presence of the eyebrow lose all its reason for existing: The eyebrow or notch, whatever the design, is made to increase the useful size of a screen, but, what good is an eyebrow if a similar appearance appears black bar that removes more screen space?

Obviously for this problem to be eradicated Google, Motorola and developers must do their part and optimize applications. However, with so many eyebrow options, developers take longer to optimize their apps.

Motorola, can't you take your mark off the jaw of the G7 Plus?

Continuing with the bezels, it seems to me that Motorola may have dispensed with its brand at the bottom of the screen. This would have allowed the bevel to be smaller and compensate for the upper black stripe. But no, Motorola decided to place its legend at the bottom that could be used to increase the size of the screen or reduce the size of the device. If Motorola wants to prove that it is your phone and show off your brand, we already have the recognized bat wings logo on the fingerprint reader that is more than enough.

Regarding the rest of the design everything is in shape: we have a top speaker (above the eyebrow and the front camera), below the Motorola logo is the microphone. The side on the G7 Plus looks very pretty and the same tone of the back, with just a few things to mention: at the base is the headphone port, the Lightning port and the row of holes for the horn. On the left side there are no modifications but s in the upper part, where is the tray to expand the storage and place the SIM card. On the right side, finally, there are the volume up and down buttons, as well as the button to turn the screen on or off, which is easy to reach.

In the back we find the common thing: a double camera surrounded by a circle with relief and a double tone flash. Below, just a little more than a centimeter under the camera, is the fingerprint reader with the signature logo.

Weighing just 172 grams, the Moto G7 Plus feels extremely comfortable to hold and is manageable with just one hand. Its size of 6.2 inches gives you a screen large enough to view photos, videos or surf the Internet comfortably but without feeling that you have a large phone. From the first moment it is held, a sensation of a well-built, resistant and easy to use sensation is experienced.

The design on the Moto G7 Plus is one of the most accommodating in the mid-range for this year.

The Moto G7 Plus and its Snapdragon 636 processor will give you for all your activities social networks, games, listening to music and whatever you want

The Moto G7 Plus is not a phone that will be the best performance in the specification tables, and with its Snapdragon 636 processor the controversy and criticism is served. In fact, during my tests, I have read, seen and received criticism about this phone, and it is that for some users the fact of seeing the Snapdragon 636, a processor long ago and that was in the Moto Z3 Play, is unacceptable.

My experience with the performance in the Moto G7 Plus has been quite good, I do not have a single criticism and it has responded to the level of what I can accept. The phone does not feel large and heavy, but of good size, light and capable. I think the performance experience goes hand in hand with what you can expect.

In the end, Motorola is able to optimize the performance of the cell phone by running Android Pie without many modifications and does not add many of its own applications, which makes a light operating system and that the use of resources and in this case, the processor, be very good.

The performance figures show, a processor and normal and acceptable results, nothing below its rivals but not above:

Test of performance

Legend:

Geekbench 4: Single-core (one core)

Geekbench 4: Multi-core (multiple cores)

3DMark Ice Storm (unlimited

Note:

Longer bars represent better performance

What has surprised me and left with my mouth open is the duration of your battery. But let me put it another way: I had to do six times battery tests for this cell phone. (Normally we do three tests).

When I heard about the technical specifications in the Moto G7 Plus, the 3,000mAh battery sounded like it was going to be a weakness, but nothing could be further from the truth.

In my daily use the phone arrives in excess and without any problem to end my day: I disconnect it around 6 in the morning, I use it to read news, send emails, browse social networks, listen to music via Bluetooth, use the maps of once in a while and to take pictures and by 10 or 11 at night it arrives with about 15 percent of battery without the saving mode on.

In the tests of duration controlled and made by CNET in Spanish (which I had to perform six times), the Moto G7 Plus offered us an average battery life of 17 hours and 2 minutes. That is on par with the results in the same tests of industry titans as the iPhone XS Max (17 hours and 32 minutes) or the OnePlus 6T (with 17 hours and 10 minutes).

The performance in the Moto G7 Plus is outstanding and comply with everything you need while your battery pays you in your day to day. The Moto G7 Plus super more than its predecessor that in the same tests had a result of 11 hours and 5 minutes.
