    superb value and functionality

    i recently upgraded to this phone after using a galaxy note/galaxy s4 for 6 years. it was about time for an upgrade, and i heard some good things about it. i was apprehensive as ive never used a motorola product, and with the price being so low i was a little incredulous. im pleased to say that this is by far one of the best purchases I've made. i was drawn to it due to its massive battery and good ratings and let me tell you; this is an excellent phone. i use it hours a day for messaging, calling, browsing youtube and listening to music, and i only charge it every 3 days or so. it has a great processor and plenty of ram, so there are 0 issues with multitasking or performing daily functions. the fact that it has 32 INTERNAL gb of storage AND a microSD slot for even more is incredible. it also has a HEADPHONE JACK, which is something you're seeing less and less nowadays with new phones. thankfully with this badboy i can drop my 128gb microSD in and have room to spare as i jam out walking from class to class. the phone also packs a wealth of features that are icing on the cake. fingerprint sensors, motion gestures, and more really give this phone a premium feel. some critics say the screen resolution is bad, but it looks perfect to me. it's not TOO large of a phone either. the camera leaves something to be desired however, but is not at all a deal-breaker. overall, this phone is INCREDIBLE for the price and i cannot recommend it more. with new mainline phones going for upwards to a grand, this thing keeps up for a fraction of the cost and a battery that trumps them all. buy it.

    Verizon LTE Works great for me

    Just wanted to leave a short review about the issues a few people are having on Verizon. I purchased this phone on 3/30/19, I pulled my existing Sim Card from my LG V20 and hoped for the best. I have no issues as at all and right away got 4g LTE signal, seemed to take a few hours for speeds to improve but once they did they were fantastic. As of now I am getting 81.8 Mbps Down and 6.88 up, this is on Verizon Pre-Paid, I am happy! I am not sure where the problems exist, perhaps there was an issue on the Verizon end that has since been fixed/updated? I chatted with a Verizon rep and she was not familiar with the phone and encouraged me to get the IMEI number to make sure it is in their system, it is. Phone is very solid, processor is fast, battery is phenomenal (Reason for purchase) Screen is better then it should be by the specs. Camera is average at best, not horrible but not great either. I like that this is an unlocked phone as I tend to bounce around the various Pre-Paid services for who has the best deal. Includes band 66 and 71 for T-Mobile Users. All in all I am very happy with my purchase, I hope the Verizon issue is sorted out, so far so good over here though, I will update if anything goes south.

    Consider This Phone

    I currently own the Motorola G6. Loved it, looking to upgrade. This Motorola G7 power exceeds my expectation. I am a casual user and I like the fact that this thing has a BEAST battery, upgraded snapdragon 632 from last year 450 and general camera improvements. A bigger screen which is nice for watching videos from last year Motorola g6. 5000mah battery capacity with 3 day battery life for watching videos and social media some light gaming with not having to charge that much. Charge up with a 15w turbo power which is nice that it's included. I believe the G7 series also got camera upgrades this year. Great upgrade for those that have the E5 plus or g6 play or looking for new phone. I would like to point out that there are a few compromises with the screen resolution that it's not close to 1080p and that there are only 3GB ram and 32gb storage as well as a notch that some may not like. Casual users like us won't care so it's not really a deal breaker for most of us. The screen is still great for what this phone is. Stock android is a plus as well. Amazing. Thank you for the affordable price tag Motorola and best buy activation deals. I might wait to pick this up when it goes on sale later on! Good job Motorola.

    I love this phone. It has the design of a premium phone without the emptying your wallet. My main complaints are minor. I'm not a fan of having the volume right above the power button. I've accidentally turned my phone off when I meant to turn the volume down or screenshot. Second sometimes watching Snapchat videos aren't entirely clear because of the big screen at first, but it usually clears up. Also because of the design, the phone's easy to drop because it's a bit slippery and leaves fingerprints so I recommend getting a case with this or at least a popsocket. Now that that's out of the way, the rest of this phone is amazing. The display is crystal clear. The phone has no lag and switches between tasks seamlessly at 3gb. The photos are also clear. The battery however makes this phone truly a steal at the price. It's the best battery on the market. I charged this phone Friday afternoon and it's Monday morning and it's on 42 percent with about medium use. Of the midrange phones on the market, this phone clearly is the best. Hope this helps!

    Pleased So Far

    New to Motorola/Lenovo. My trusty old Samsung Galaxy Reverb finally gave up the ghost after six years. I had wanted a new Samsung to replace it because that was what I was used to, but I didn't care for any of the currently available Samsung options in the price range I wanted to pay. So I researched many other possibilities and decided the Moto G7 Power might be a good choice instead for about $200. I also decided to go with an unlocked phone instead of having to tied to a particular carrier. I've only had the phone for about ten days, and am still learning my way around it, but so far I'm happy. The phone is fast and responsive, has a nice display, good camera, and many options that are new to me to play around with. I'm by no means a techie type, and probably the phone has several functions that I won't use, but it's nice to know that they're there just the same should I want to use them in the future. Best Buy rep was very patient and knowledgeable in getting my new account set up with ATT. I believe that I made a good choice for my needs with the Moto G7 Power. It seems to have a lot of features that one would expect to see only on higher end phones, but at a reasonable price point.

    The battery life claims are 100 percent true

    I'm coming off a flagship phone from 2016 (S7) and man the Android OS has improved massively since then (and Motorola's Android skin is way better than Samsungs, I'm officially a fan). But I'd get that on most modern Android phones, the real story is the battery life. I use my phone a lot more than the average user, and no battery has ever been able to keep up. This one does, easily. I typically have 40% left by the time I go to bed, which is insane considering every other phone I've owned would be dead or close by then. It also has fast charging so when it does die it doesn't take long to get more juice. Everything else you'd want is there: nice screen, responsive and snappy, decent camera, processor fast enough for everything including most games (not Fortnite, but PUBG runs smooth) and the polycarbonate (plastic) body feels way more durable than a glass back (dumbest smartphone trend imo). I'd recommend this to anyone, unless you absolutely need something top of the line and think that's worth an extra 600-700 (and none of those phones have the battery life this one has).

    This phone is very sleek and stylish and compares to even the most expensive of their kind sold today! The camera is easy to use and set up for a beginner just getting their first Mobil phone! Also being water proof is wonderful considering the first day I brought it home I accidentally dropped it into my kitchen sink full of dish water! It still works perfectly! The cost is fair and the performance alone is worthy of comparison to more expensive of their kind today! This is my first Motorola phone and I can honestly say I'm proud to own one! I have started a huge collection of photos which is no problem for the 32 GB built in memory! One satisfied customer! Thanks Motorola!

    Very long battery, though bulky with case

    Moto G7 Power has very long battery life. I use Accubattery app to charge it to 80% to extend battery life and even with 80% it can last a couple of days. I think you need a good case and a tempered glass screen protector for it. It has Gorilla Glass 3 only, so it protects from scratches only, so the more protection the better. This phone is big by itself and with a good case it becomes even bigger and heavier which is fine for me. Though it is unlikely that a simple magnetic car mount can hold it safely. CPU is slightly slower than 3 years old galaxy S7, but it helps battery life. It is still pretty fast. Screen resolution is lower than alternatives, but it also helps with battery life. On the brightest setting, it is not as bright as Galaxy S7, but it also helps to save battery. You may want to set camera setting to HDR to slightly improve photos. Also, Moto software home button takes some time to get used to. Reverse fingerprint scanner is interesting, you can unlock phone with one hand. I wish it was completely waterproof at this price point.

    Perfect phone for my wife

    All 3 of the Moto G7 phones are good values, but the Power was perfect for us. My wife is a heavy user, but not a gamer. She doesn't need the extra memory off the flagship phone. She does tend to abuse the battery, and this one will go for days. The screen is crisp, and camera very good for a single lens camera. The flagship has a double lens and a portrait mode and is better in low light. For $100 less and a bigger battery, the G7 Power was perfect. My son has the G7 and shares my plan so I know he is extremely happy with his choice also - and he does game and stream a ton on it. The downsides to this line is no NFC and in spite of the glass back, no wireless charging. Neither of those is important to us. I have the G5 and also have a watch with NFC, so I can use Google Pay through the watch. If you can live without those features, this phone is hard to beat. The only thing I don't like about this phone is that my wife now has a better phone than I do, but to be fair, I'm still extremely happy with my G5 after nearly 2 years.

    The 2-3 day battery life is simply a marvel. Not having charge anxiety throughout the day is honestly liberating, and now I can't imagine having a phone without this battery life. It has a very bright, attractive display that even at 720p, from a distance, looks great, and I've had 1440p displays with my previous phones. The display quality was perhaps my biggest concern as a downgrade, but I was very pleased with the results (you can even hide the notch under the developer settings, which makes it look more like a Pixel 3). Also even with 3GB of ram, this thing flies. Flawlessly running multiple apps at the same time, I'm impressed with the results for a phone in this price range. Great front facing speaker. Camera quality is okay at best, but made MUCH better with GCam installed. I really don't have any complaints. The battery life is mind blowing though. This is perhaps the best investment I've made for a phone and I would honestly recommend it to everyone.

    I bought this phone knowing the screen resolution isn't as good as the standard G7. However, once we compared the screens at our local Best Buy we realized quickly that the difference in screen resolution isn't big enough to overcome the benefits of the ginormous battery in the G7 Power. My son finds the screen more than adequate and loves the fact he can't run the battery down in a single day unless he used the phone like a tablet and plays games all day long. Only down side I can come up with at the moment is the lack of Qi charging. In 2019 even budget phones should come with this feature. Fortunately, the phone does have a USB-C port for charging, so it's up to date in that regard. Highly recommend this phone if you're looking for a capable phone with exceptional battery life on a budget. I don't think there's another phone within twice the G7 Power's price that I would want in its place.

    Motorola - Moto G7 Power is a "wow!" phone

    Motorola - Moto G7 Power phone purchased to use with Square for trade show sales. Initial Best Buy price appeared to be great. Price got even better when associate made suggestions to save more money. Associate provided great service by doing complete phone set up. Including how to set facial recognition and fingerprint ID. Trickiest part of the phone was that new technology. Now, we need to explore all the possibilities on Moto that are familiar on old smart phones. Choice of service providers for unlocked phone is a big plus. Friends who have other brand expensive phones said "Wow!"

    After having 4 Samsung Phones, 1-S3 and 3-S5's and all from Sprint I got tired of the bloatware. My wife had 2 Moto's and I thought why not she is happy with them. So I decided to buy the latest unlocked Moto G7 POWER. You won't get that through Sprint. Wow is all I can say. There are to many pluses to list them all here but if I may list two, NO BLOATWARE anywhere! The battery is astounding, I charged it when I brought it home and almost 5 days later it was down to 28% are you kidding me? Oh did I mention that it's unlocked as well? Meaning if I get tired of Sprint I can go else where with it, AT&T or Verizon comes to mind. It's mine free and clear! NO CONTRACT!

    Have had this for about 5 days now. I have charged this thing once in that time. Currently sitting at 31 hours since last charge with 7 hours of screen on time and 30% battery left with the phone claiming it will go another 22 hours. Just phenomenal! I was afraid to let go of my old moto z play that would go a day and a half easy on a charge but this thing is amazing! My only beef with this phone is no NFC. My wifes pixel is faster but not by a ton in fact if I couldn't compare this to hers I would not be able to tell this thing wasnt top of the line. $249 for a clean android experience that will go for three days on a charge. yes please!

    I was a little leery about changing from a high-dollar premium phone like a Samsung S6 to a well-priced Moto G7 Power but I sure am glad I did. This is my favorite phone ever. My two biggest complaints about the S6 were battery life and screen brightness in bright sunlight. The battery life on this phone is extraordinary. I have never had to recharge during the day no matter how much I use the phone that day. And seeing the screen in bright sunlight is so much better than my previous phone. The camera in this phone is fine for what I use it for and this phone does everything I need it to do. This is a great phone especially when you factor in the price.

    I bought the G7 Power specifically for its justly-lauded 5000mAH battery reserve - and man, that aspect was WAY underrated! I gave it a full charge on Wednesday night after I got it, and the FOLLOWING Wednesday night - after synching all apps & data, frequent usage of all aspects, and thorough putting-through-the paces - it still had 36% to go! I later bought 2 more OEM chargers and a Meagoes Fast Car Charger for the road (also a really worthwhile buy for the MOTO G7 Power) - and I'm good to go!!

    I charge this phone every 3 days. Despite what some reviews have said, the screen is excellent. I'm not a gamer I use it for business. I like baseball so when I go to MLB for video highlights the picture is very sharp. Apps load quicky. I was able to format a Sim card to make it part of the internal storeage so I've gone from 32 to 96 GB. I live in NYC so Verizon coverage so far has been excellent. It jumps to Wi-Fi very quickly. The reps at my 86 & Lex BEST BUY are pros and the transfer from my old phone to this was painless. For the price you can't beat it.

    A little thicker than most (0.37") but the battery lasts for days ( 3+ days normal use for me) and It's fast. Love the Moto Actions for turning on the flashlight or camera. Mine was only $125 unlocked out the door (+case). Best Buy activated it on Sprint and copied all my pictures, texts and call log. No bloatware. No ads other that Motorola asking if you understand how all the functions of the phone work. 1.8 ghz Octa-core It could use more on-board storage (30% full brand new) but everyone adds an SD card anyway, so...

    I purchased this phone last weekend for my granddaughter, replacing her broken cell phone. She loves it. It is really a good looking phone and the size is perfect for her. The screen color/brightness is very good and it is quite responsive. We did put a screen protector and good case on it immediately, unfortunately Best Buy carried neither. I have a more expensive cell phone and I cannot see any difference in performance, feel or screen. I think this was (is) a very good value for her.

    I bought this phone for myself. It had easy set up and was ready to go in no time at all. When I start with a full charge, I can leave it unplugged for 3 days and only be at 80%. I love this about this phone. I bought a cover with a belt clip as I do a lot of outside work and it is easy to use and carry at all time. I really like it. I would highly recommend this phone to anyone that doesn't have time to charge their phone all of the time. It makes super clear calls and the camera is amazing.
