Moto Z3 Play Now Getting Upgrade to Android Pie

With a 5.7-inch screen, the handset has an all-plastic body.

The Moto G7 Play is a petite device. The handset is splash-proof and has a wide eyebrow-style notch on its 6.2-inch display. This gives the Play a sleek and compact feel, and it won't take up too much space in the pocket. Its 6.2-inch Gorilla Glass display has a resolution of 2270 x 1080 as well as a more subtle teardrop notch. The G7 weighs 172g, while the G7 Plus weighs 176g. However, that low-resolution screen exacerbates the best feature of the G7 Power: its monstrous 5000 mAh battery. Its 5.7-inch display and 1512 x 720 resolutions is a reflection of its small statue even though it has a larger notch than the G7 Power.

The problem, said Greengart, is that the G7 is not affordable at $299 and the G7 Power and G7 Play suffer from cheap materials and just average imaging.

The G7 is also the only member of the family to sport dual-rear cameras, which is a nice bonus. There are plenty of other fixes and performance tweaks.

Motorola had announced the Moto G7 last week in Brazil. We will let you know more as and when we get official information in this regard.

These include an AI function that straightens skewed pictures, auto smile detection, and a high-res feature that takes multiple pictures when you zoom in, in order to create a more detailed picture.

Considering that even most flagship phones today top out with battery capacities around 4,000 mAh and tend to feature much more power hungry chips and features, I'm excited to test the G7 Power's longevity myself to see how long it can last.


The main difference between the G7 and G7 Power aside from the latter's much larger battery are the G7 Power's single rear camera and lower-res screen. Motorola claims the Power is good for 60 hours of mixed use between charges, and it also comes with a TurboPower charger in the box, which is claimed to provide nine hours of usage from only 15 minutes of charge.

The pricing of the G7 Power, however, seems a little odd. As per the tweet, the phone will be available in India at an MRP of Rs 18,999, but Mahesh Telecom will be selling it for Rs 14,500.

The $299 G7 stands out as the top-of-the-line model among those three.

It comes with a more humble 32GB of baked-in storage and just 2GB of RAM. It has an internal memory of 64GB and can be further expanded up to 512GB using the microSD card slot. It also has USB Type-C, a first for Moto G-series phones, as well as splash resistance.

While both the G7 Power and G7 Play also get 8MP selfie cameras, they offer single 12MP and 13MP cameras respectively. Only the G7 and G7 Plus have near-field communication, however, so if you're going to be relying on your mobile for contactless payments you'll need these devices. The series consists of four smartphones - Moto G7, Moto G7 Play, G7 Power, and the Moto G7 Plus.

The G7 Plus is the first Moto smartphone to feature 27W TuboPower charging.
