Btw, because of google decision, all newer android phones must use USB-C cable, not the old USB cable. Not all USB C can be used to transfer files, certain cables can only charge the phone. Anyone should check any USB-C cable before purchasing the cable if it can be used for file transfer or only for charging. "Cheap" USB-C cable usually can only be used for charging.

You can check notification of your phone after you connect USB cable between your phone and your computer. and change the option from 'No data transfer" to "File Transfer". The default setting is "No data transfer". If you want, you can change the default setting by enabling "Developer options" in the Settings if you haven't enabled it in the Settings. Go to Settings > System > About Phone > Build number. Tap Build number several times until it says something like you are now a developer. Then go back to System, then there will be Developer options menu. Find "Default USB configuration", change the option such as "File Transfer" if you want, or even USB tethering if you want your computer to get internet access from your phone.
great budget phone.... battery life is superb....gaming not a problem at all....
wish motorola will made something high end feature on this phone....
I love mine so much I broke mine by accident then went out and bought another one I love the battery life I couldn't go back to a small battery so with that said I give it a a 4 out of 5 without flinching
The CONNECTIVITY is very BAD !! I had before a Huawei and i could connect the phone with windows just by using plug&play and make any file transfer with Windows Explorer. With Motorola G7 Power this is IMPOSSIBLE !! I can connect the phone and laptop trough the microsoft account only !!???! Not all motorola cables are able to transfer files some of them can only charge...What kind of bullshit is that ??? I DO NOT WANT TO SHARE ANYTHING IN INTERNET WITH ANY ONE while i am transferring files between MY laptop and MY smartphone.
Anyone notice different versions of this phone with glass back as opposed to the plastic back? A previous one I had (I bought it in Germany) had a plastic back, which eased my mind of not worrying about damage. I bought another one (64gb/4gb) off of amazon and although glass is nice, but it just leaves room for cracking T_T
I have owned this phone for 3 months, and I am overjoyed with it. Finally, battery worries are a thing of the past, and the video camera is really good. You can spend a lot more for a phone, but you can't get a whole lot more.
FatCJ, 15 Mar 2020This would've been such a great allrounder phone if the rear camera wasn't so incredibly bad (... moreTry to install google camera, much better than moto's stock camera app. Google camera should be used in any android phone. Sadly my girlfriend's Samsung A50? cannot use google camera because of Samsung Exynos processor ... Remember to only buy android phone with Snapdragon processor. This Moto G7 Power is still good enough for a lot of people in my opinion. Maximise what you have, not just complain without finding solutions. I have used this phone for almost 1 year, so far I am fine with this phone. It usually lasts 2 days for me, great battery. Moto's phones are almost pure android. I have google recorder app installed without problem in use. Some other brands have problem/bug with google recorder app. Call recorder app is still good with this phone (android 9). I am not sure about android 10 ...
Photo quality with gcam is much better than stock camera. You can try newer google camera 7.3.020 from many other modders. Check celsoazevedo (google it) for a huge list of gcam from a lot of modders. I suggest to use newer gcam 7.3.020 from PitbulL, Parrot043, and onFire for example (they have JPG quality option up to 100%). I have also tried gcam from other modders like cstark, BSG, Arnova8G2, wyroczen, the_dise, etc. but they compress the JPG quality (not up to 100%) as far as I know. Maximise what you have, not just complain without finding solutions. If no / less sound from your phone's speaker (sadly only front speaker), try to hit your phone a little bit to the wall or something. It works for me. I read somewhere about this previously. Maybe the placement of the speaker inside the phone is not strong enough. So far I am fine with this phone. If no sound when there is a phone call from whatsapp, place your phone screen position on top if on the table. If the phone is in your pocket, put it vertically just like the way you read from the phone, not upside down. I don't know why, maybe from Moto Actions (Flip for DND or Pick up to silence). I disable them. Again, maximise what you have, not just complain without finding solutions.
Which motorola has a gcam port? And why is the G8 so bad?...according to reviews. I'm about to buy one of these just trying to figure most reliable, battery life, easy to use. Have a Motorola Z force now and only prob is battery dies in a few hours... old.
Manjit, 25 Apr 2020Agreed ....Why [people pay so much more for phones to just browse social media in the main and... moreBecause not everyone has the same priorities and/or financial flexibility as you. Getting what you like is not being a snob, it's getting what you like. Don't lose sleep over it.
Manfreddy, 05 Apr 2020What a great phone! I use Maps a lot, which used to kill my G4+ and make it do wierd things.... moreAgreed ....Why [people pay so much more for phones to just browse social media in the main and take a few snaps here and there .....phone snobs basically .....
What a great phone! I use Maps a lot, which used to kill my G4+ and make it do wierd things. My new G7Power goes 2 days, no hiccups, without a charge, then charges in 30 minutes. I am hard pressed to understand why people pay 2 - 6 times as much for other phones... I guess they just don't know about Moto G...
Bought one today for 90 euros used but as new...What a great Phone!!Unbeatable for this price still in 2020!!!Kudos Motorola
This would've been such a great allrounder phone if the rear camera wasn't so incredibly bad (just about as bad as on the first Gen Moto G back in 2013) and if it didn't lack a compass, making it completely useless for proper navigation use with gmaps or whatever. Only the higher end versions of the G7 have a compass, but they lack the huge battery.
Everything else about it makes it a really great allrounder phone. It even still has a headphone jack, dual SIM and a dedicated memory card slot instead of those stupid shared slots for crying out loud. Finding a phone that has all these features combined is getting incredibly hard unfortunately. Even the comparatively low display resolution is way less of a problem in real-life use than I thought it would be, unlike what all the reviewers were saying.
Still... with no compass and a dumpster-level camera, the G7 Power was disappointing enough for me to sell it and look elsewhere :(
