Design and Display

Taking the stage with a textured finish, the Motorola Moto G7 Play feels great to hold in hand. Its 8.1mm thickness and 168g weight also adds to the portable feel it presents when held. In plastic covering, the phone shines off coolly curved edges.

Next up is its display entities. A 19:9 aspect ratio bounces on the 5.7-inch IPS touchscreen. With this, you have a smartphone display that’s lengthy than most of the Full View displays out there. Then, you can accommodate the brightness that’s dished out by the 720 x 1512 pixels resolution.

Battery and Camera

Given average usage, the 3,000mAh battery can cover you for a day and a half. You can also tweak the Power optimization settings for such lengthy duration to materialise. Sadly, the Turbo Power charger that’s been in the package of other G7 smartphones didn’t make it with this one. So, you might have to wait for over 2 hours for the battery to get full.

Its cameras are definitely not the top of the line but they can handle whatever you throw at them. The front camera, for instance, is an 8MP shooter with f/2.2 aperture. To balance its lighting requirements, a soft flash is incorporated into the notch. Heading backwards, the 13MP camera captures finely detailed images with modes like Spot colour, Dynamic Range and HDR.

Hardware and Software

Smooth running of the device is guaranteed by the presence of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 632. However, unlike the Play in its appellation suggests, this smartphone isn’t primed for maximum gaming performance. This owes largely to the 2GB in the RAM unit.

Talk of software actions, the Motorola Moto G7 Play comes with a few Moto customisations to the stock Android Pie OS. Adaptive battery and Adaptive brightness are some of the stock features that are fully active. Finally, you can actively save files to the tune of 32GB on the the phone’s expandable storage.
