Moto E7 Plus design
Moto E7 Plus Lots of reminders for us Moto G9. The design is very similar and there are some things that we also liked about the Moto E7 Plus. The color of our review unit is light blue. Smartphone companies usually choose a solid color on a budget device but this phone has a Motorola gradient finish, which will help it stand out from other budget mobile phones. The Motoro 9 has flattened the edges of the Moto E7 Plus as the company did with the Moto G9 and the frame has turned slightly backwards. This helps to hold the phone well.
For the selfie camera you’ll find a waterway groove at the top that is set to a 6.5-inch display. The thickness of the bezels is acceptable depending on the price but you will find that the chin is a bit thick. The phone’s power and volume buttons are set fairly well, making the phone easy to use with one hand. There is also a dedicated button for Google Assistant. It is set above the volume button. The Motorola Moto E7 Plus has a dual camera setup that is set just above the fingerprint scanner. There is nothing on top of the Moto E7 Plus.
Moto E7 Plus specification
The phone comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 processor. Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 is an octa-core chipset based on 11 nm process and works at 1.8GHz clock speed. Motorola has launched the phone in India with only 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
We liked its MyUX custom skin which is based on Android 10. It gives almost stock experience. Our review unit had a September Android security patch. Motorola Gesture is available on OS. However, this device lacks the camera’s quick-launch gesture. Which reminds me that the E7 Plus is an entry-level model. Gesture-based navigation is enabled by default, and you can swipe to the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner to show notification shades. Motorola has left Blatware almost non-existent. In it you will find some pre-installed applications from Google.
Moto E7 Plus performance and battery life
We haven’t seen any setbacks while using the Moto E7 Plus for a week. Multitasking with 4GB RAM is not a problem and we have easily switched between several applications. We also liked the performance of Face Unlock and Fingerprint Scanner.
The gaming performance on the Moto E7 Plus is decent and we play quality graphics call of duty without any problems. Within 15 minutes of playing the game, we noticed that the phone’s battery had dropped by 3 percent. Ordinary games run fine and the device does not get hot when playing ordinary games.
The battery life of the Moto E7 Plus is very good. It lasted for 18 hours 23 minutes on our HD video loop test. With normal use, the phone lasted for a whole day and a half. The lack of a USB Type-C port is disappointing, but Motorola is not alone, Xiaomi’s Redmi 9 also comes with a micro-USB port.
The Moto E7 Plus comes with a 10W charger, which is relatively slow. It charges the phone 22 percent in 30 minutes and 43 percent in one hour. It takes two hours to take full charge. Sadly, there is no quick support for charging with it.
Moto E7 Plus camera
The Moto E7 Plus has a dual camera setup, it comes with a f / 1.7 aperture with a primary sensor of 48 / megapixel and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. This phone has an 8-megapixel sensor with f / 2.2 aperture for taking selfies.
The Motorola Camera app is very easy to use and I haven’t had any problems with it. Photo mode gives you the option to manually control ISO, focus, white balance and exposure.
The daylight photos were good and got enough sharpness and good detail. The phone automatically enabled HDR for bright scenes and the camera was quick to take shots. In the case of close-up subjects it added soft blur to the background and kept the image sharp.
Portrait mode uses a depth sensor, but we’ve seen that the Moto E7 Plus captures humans and animals better than objects. It does a good job of identifying the edges and gives you the option to determine the level of opacity before taking a picture.
Low-light camera performance was average and the output looked smooth. Enables Night Mode to significantly change the output, giving a very bright and sharp image. The phone takes about two seconds to capture a shot and in that case we suggest you use night mode only after sunset.
The selfies taken during the day were good and the portrait mode is also available which allows you to determine the level of opacity. The phone cannot recognize the face for the portrait when the mask is applied. Low-light selfies were average.
After using the Moto E7 Plus for a few days, we can say that it is a very good option for its price. Adequate performance has been found and many budget phone buyers will be happy with it. Its long battery life will make your day very comfortable without worrying about charge. But the micro-USB port makes it fun to charge the mood here.
Camera performance is good, but it should be noted that this phone has only two cameras. If you want a good all-rounder and a clean user interface, the Moto E7 Plus is for you.
