I've had mine for one year and the quick charge feature is one of the best ones on the phone, it's really pleasant to plug your phone and 20 minutes later having 50% more charge. I believe your phone might be deffective.
Caution : it's a very good phone, but DO NOT USE THE 27w charger ! It will overheat the motherboard and most of breakdowns are due to this
I was quite happy with this cellphone for 6 months. After that period, the camera and flash stop working. I've sent it to repair, came back with that problem solved but with no autonomy (didn't endure more than 7-8 hours with a full batery and no usage), and also it shutdown everytime I tried to see a video. Also the vibration of it was really strange.
Never had this many problems with a cellphone, I do not recommend it to anybody. But maybe this is just my bad experience.

There is not android one so does that mean Android will never get updated ? how does this work ? Whos job is it to update the OS ?
Just got my Moto G7+. How to I enable the UI developer option? I was able to do that on my G5+. I want to put the battery status with percentage into the clock widget on the home screen.
Great review but one very important thing missing that could render the phone unusable. Everywhere they are reporting poor signal strength for the G7 and in some cases no reception, where as on previous models (G5 G6) reception was fine. I bought the G5 over the Samsung S7 due to this very reason, no signal reception on the S7 but 2 bars on the G5 in the same location.
It's a pity no comparison/test is made in any of the reviews on the signal strength of the phone. Without reception it's probably a useless device.
Bought one of these from Amazon.es (Spain).
Chipset/processor is the Qualcomm SDM660- and not the SDM636
I realise its not a massive difference- its a 2.2Ghz chip instead of the 1.8Ghz chip- and it has better graphics. Just a heads up- if you look around out there- there are different variants of the G7 Plus to be found- it makes sense to try and get the better specs if you can find them.
I am really torn in choosing Moto g7 plus or Mi 9 SE. They have similar pricing, but now moto g7 plus is little bit cheaper. Both have good cameras. Mi 9 SE have three unique cameras. It has better night pictures and one camera features ultra wide angle; while moto g7 plus have more excellent photo quality for me, color-wise and it's more realistic. I love the sizing, display, and built of Mi 9 SE.
I am also an audiophile so I think the Moto g7 plus is ahead of the Mi. Mi 9 SE does not have 3.5 mm jack which may be problematic. Also its loudspeakers arent stereo. Thinking all the factors and my priorities, I might choose moto g7 plus. If only moto g7 plus have the same features of Mi 9 SE, then it would be perfect.
Very good speakers, good camera (the audio track when shooting video does not have the background hiss that the recent Pixels seem to suffer from), and the software additions are useful (shake for flashlight/torch; twist for camera, etc.). The battery is decent, it gets me through a day with no problem. No random restarts. At the current price of as little as $269, it's a very good deal.
Where are the raw files (dng) so we can properly make a real judgement about the camera?

In US you even consider the oneplus as midrange phone and not a flagship!! While in other countries it costs twice as someone's salary
Everyone talks about there being a crowded mid-range space...well I'm here to tell you the is COMPLETELY untrue in the U.S. We can't use Xiaomi, Huawei, Honor, Vivo, and Oppo to name a few. The Samsung midrange line is not made U.S. compatable either. So basically we have Motorola, and ????? It's either bottom of the barrel or flagship. I'm sure some people will say they have a Xiaomi or Huawei phone and it works fine...well not in my area. I bought a Honor 8X Max...complete fail where I live no matter the network.
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2019I have had AMZ send me a Note 7 and was quite impressed by the hardware and battery capacity. ... morenot one gets me whe i try to explain that......
people only focus on hardware.....it´s important of course but it´s not the most important thing
With location/service off you can achieve one day moderate usage
I have had AMZ send me a Note 7 and was quite impressed by the hardware and battery capacity. The camera was so-so, and MIUI honestly sucks big time, there are a lot of things that just don't work, not out of the box, and not after tinkering.
So I bought a G7+ the other day, and got that up and running in literally 30 minutes all data+apps moved. It does not have the raw power of the Note 7, but the camera is at least on par (and it can do 4K without tweaking). It also ran all the things right out of the box that were needed (like showing menu dots where requested by old software, like play-on-connect with bluetooth (not only wired), like proper notifications on the lockscreen (not only from Xiaomi software), etc. etc.). The Redmi Note 7 had to go, not because of the more-than-adequate hardware, but because of the sucky MIUI 10 (9 was way better, btw, but there's no downgrade path).
I am now happy with a Moto G7+; the only thing that noticeably sucks is battery life, so the charger is in my backpack and thanks to the CR-32 delivering 27 watts, topping up the phone is a matter of minutes.
I would recommend to check out the software experience. Hardware is great on the Redmi, more than adequate on the Moto, but the software, oh please...
HKNY, 04 Mar 2019It is one of the few phones that have stereo speakers, 4k video recording cameras, main camera... morethat sums it up, great phone, the 660 simply would have made mid ranger of the year....too bad....
Maybe motorola renews an S version later this year with an improved 660 SoC
viano, 21 Feb 2019No, you can go pretty wrong with this fooling Moto G7 plus.
"compass (market dependent)"
... moreHaha. I changed from the Zenfone 5 to this phone and this is better in every aspect (except for display quality).
Moto Display a thousand times better than a notification LED, battery lasts longer (I'm getting 5 hours SoT compared to 4 on Zenfone 5) yet a smaller battery by 10%, QC 4.0 is amazing (from 8% to 100% it takes 40mins) camera is miles better than the one on the Zenfone 5, stock Android is beautiful and - maybe it's market dependent - but here the Zenfone 5 costs 390 EUR right now (it opened at 470 EUR last year), while the Moto G7 Plus costs ~ 290 EUR.
