Motorola's G series is known for offering innovative tech at an affordable price. We compare the two most recent additions to the series - the Motorola Moto G7 Power and Motorola Moto G7 Plus - to see how they measure up.

Moto G7 Power vs Moto G7 Plus Design and Display

At first glance, both the Moto G7 Power and Moto G7 Plus look incredibly similar. The sleek duo boast an eye-catching aesthetic, with smooth rounded corners, an ultra-wide display and a circular fingerprint sensor placed on the back of each handset.

When you dive into the details however, you'll find a handful of differences between the two. The Moto G7 Power is home to a 6.2-inch Max Vision HD+ display, which offers a resolution of 1520 x 720, while the G7 Plus has a 6.2-inch Max Vision Full HD+ display. With a resolution of 2270 x 1080, you can expect a slightly crisper, more vibrant picture from the G7 Plus.

Both screens have an aspect ratio of 19:9, which essentially means each display almost stretches entirely across the front of each phone - adding to that immersive, cinematic experience when streaming directly from the device.

The G7 Plus screen is made using Corning Gorilla Glass 3, while the handset features a water-repellent coating. It sports a teardrop-shaped notch for the front-facing camera and face unlock technology, while the G7 Power shares the more traditional notch-shape at the centre of the display to enable these features.

Finally, dimensions. The G7 Power measures 159.43 x 76 x 9.3mm and weighs 193g, while the G7 Plus comes in at 157 x 75.3 x 8.3mm and weighs slightly less at 176g.

Moto G7 Power vs Moto G7 Plus Cameras

If you're looking for a reliable smartphone camera that can snap amazing photos no matter where you are, then you'll love both the Moto G7 Plus and the Moto G7 Power. Both include great photography features to enhance each shot, and the duo can also shoot 4K video to help you capture those extra special moments in amazing detail.

The Moto G7 Power has a 12MP rear camera that features auto HDR, a high-res zoom and an LED flash for evening shots. Additionally, the lens lets more light into the lens for better results indoors and at night. The 8MP front-facing camera boasts a screen flash to illuminate your best features and comes with group selfie mode (helping you squeeze more people into one photo) and best shot (which'll automatically narrow down those 100 or so selfies for you and select the best one).

The Moto G7 Plus, meanwhile, has a dual-lens 16MP+5MP camera, with optical image stabilisation and a large f/1.7 aperture delivering sharp, detailed low-light photos. You can get closer to the action without losing quality thanks to the high res zoom, and the G7 Plus auto smile capture feature uses an AI algorithm to take shots automatically when everyone in the picture is smiling. The front-facing 12MP camera has this feature too, alongside the ability to shoot in slow motion and 4K.

What really helps the two devices to stand out, however, is Motorola's built-in camera tech. On both, you'll find Portrait Mode for stunning bokeh, Google Lens integration and the ability to shoot panorama. There's also the Cinemagraph feature, an impressive effect where a section of your photo is in motion while the rest remains still.

Moto G7 Power vs Moto G7 Plus Battery

If battery life is the most important feature for you, consider the Moto G7 Power, which features a massive 5,000mAh battery. According to Motorola, you can expect the G7 Power to provide up to 60 hours of power from a single charge, usage dependent.

Motorola's 18W turbopower technology means you can boot up the Moto G7 Power at rapid speed too. Plug the phone in for just 15 minutes and receive an incredible nine hours of charge.

The Moto G7 Plus is similarly impressive, and while you won't find Power in its name, you'll still have a huge 3,000mAh battery to make the most of. It can charge quicker than the Moto G7 Power, using 27W turbopower that'll give you 12 hours of use after 15 minutes.

Moto G7 Power vs Moto G7 Plus Power

The Moto G7 Plus and Moto G7 Power both deliver a seamless, lightning-fast performance. Whether you're simply carrying out everyday tasks like replying to messages and browsing the web, or you're doing something more demanding such as shooting a 4K video, you can be confident both devices will handle each and every process with ease.

processor

Both handsets run Android's latest operating system, Android Pie. The Moto G7 Power also has an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. You'll find the same RAM and internal storage specs of the Moto G7 Plus, but a slightly more advanced Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor instead.
