Eww, unnecessary notch placement while there is still plenty space at the chin
The review doesn't mention that the G7 play and the G7 Power in the US have one advantage over the G7. It's not very logical, but the cheaper G7 Play and the G7 power can both use T-Mobile's Band 71. Band 71 isn't built into the main G7.
I love Moto, but how on earth can they praise the "Screen with large notch" as a positive in the review? G6 looks slick compared to this. And not to mention the best phone of all times, the Moto Razr I XT890, why dont they just update this phone. Kevlar body, lightweight, compact, Intel processor which at the time was WAY faster than any other high end phone. It took me all up to Samsung S7 before I found a phone that I could replace the Razr I with. i think when it came out Samsung was on S3 or S4?
Why Nokia 8.1 is not reviewed, which is declared as best mid range phone of 2018 ?
When you compare it to competitor phones, you say they have a bigger battery, but it's the endurance that counts not the size. Bigger batteries weigh more of course.

What OPPO VIVO are doing is gimmicks and not innovation.

Moto phones are way better than OPPO VIVO. Though with Lenovo, they are still better ( of course not as good as it use to be with Google or the original Moto ownership)
2 GB ram is not a problem with near vanilla Android.
I use Moto G turbo and G3 from 2015. They just have 2gb ram. I have installed custom ROM based on pie and they work butter smooth, without any problems. Hence, having 2gb ram on a Moto is absolutely no issues for normal working. It is justified for this budget offering.
Price is definitely going to be high with its brand value. Brand value is something which Lenovo is trying to destroy. Had they stuck to simple idea of one offering in each segment ( low, mid and premium) it would have paid off better.

This phone is aimed to compete with these companies not the Chinese.
[deleted post]They don"t hate motorola just look at other g7 family and you will see thatcthey are overrated
Ugly design and too expensive. I like the phones with big battery. But the battery is one of the most cheap components in a phone... so that can't justify how overpriced is.
[deleted post]Where did you read that?
They say "excellent battery life"...
acemang, 03 Mar 2019and the prize for the ugliest phone ever goes to....S10
First,this phone is expensive.Second 2 gb ram is to low now. Also smartphone is so ugly,I can't believe how someone can design like this. Pros is new chipset,which can run apps without lag. There are also single camera,but with 4k and make great photos. Front camera must be at least 13 mp,cause this is not 5,7 or 8 mp camera like in the flagship ( 8 mp Samsung is better than new 32 mp Chinese devices camera). Splash resistant and gorila glass 3 is always welcome ( gorilla glass 3 is more scratch resistant than gg 6,but weaker in drop segment). For me,there are far better smartphones,but people's are different.
Zero, 03 Mar 2019Funny how very cheap smartphones easy get better battery life comparing 1000$+ phones ...hummm not really. this device have 14nm vs 7nm current flagships. it consumes a lot more than a flagship so it needs more battery just to get even. LCD panel also consumes more. people tend to compare battery specs in different devices, because they don't have a clue about they are talking...
After using G5 Plus for a few months, I just realized how fragile the 3rd generation Gorilla Glass is, I won't buy from this company again, also don't expect fast update from them
I am doubting between this and the Moto X4. Anyone any thoughts on that?
Also, I had this G7 Play in my hands and the auto brightness was ALL OVER THE PLACE!!! It was CONSTANTLY changing the brightness level, eventhough my lighting situation didn't change. It's really annoying. Did I have a faulty phone, does anyone else recognise this?
