Screen and Design
The Moto E7 Plus has a design that has already become standard among more basic models, with a notch at the top to house the front camera and make room for more screen. The LCD display has 6.5 inches and HD+ resolution only considered the minimum for current standards. The setting jumps to Full HD+ in One Vision, whose slightly smaller screen of 6.3 inch concentrates a much higher amount of pixels and favors video playback and text reading.
In addition, the body is proportionally smaller given the better use of a screen with a hole in the corner for the selfies camera. However, in the TechTudo review of Motorola One Vision made in June 2020, the sensor in the display ended up getting in the way of some applications.
Moreover, the smartphones have a similar design, with mainly plastic construction and no advanced protection against water and dust. Even the colors are similar, since both are available with blue or bronze finish.
The highlight of the Moto E7 Plus is the 48 MP main camera with an f/1.7 aperture. During the day, the cell phone promises to use a vast amount of pixels to deliver photos with a lot of detail, while at night the sensor should be able to capture more light to generate photos with less noise. In addition, there is the night vision function, which amplifies lighting capture and promises to generate crisp photos even in totally dark environments. Features like this are usually present in more expensive phones, from mid-range to high-end.
The first Motorola to bring this feature was Motorola One Vision, which also has a 48 MP main sensor with f/1.7 lens and pleased in tests conducted by TechTudo. The midrange cell phone has optical image stabilization (OIS) that avoids shaky videos and tends to improve nighttime photo results. Thus, despite the fact that cell phones bring similar cameras, Motorola One Vision should take advantage in everyday life.
The same goes for the Motorola One Vision depth sensor, whose 5 MP resolution should result in better background blurring in portrait mode compared to the 2 MP sensor on the E7 Plus. On the front camera, the 2019 mobile phone gets the best of it once again by having a 25 MP camera, more powerful than the 8 MP camera present in the E7 Plus.
Performance and storage
Motorola One Vision should offer better performance in everyday life and especially when opening heavy games and applications. The cellular superiority is due to the presence of the Exynos 9609 processor, an octa-core up to 2.2 GHz that tends to be more powerful than the Snapdragon 460 (Qualcomm) 1.8 GHz in E7 Plus.
In addition, Motorola One Vision boasts 128GB of internal storage in the UFS 2.1 standard, which is faster than the eMMC used by the E7 Plus 64GB of memory. The 4 GB RAM of the cell phones equals the capacity to open several apps in sequence. Both models allow expansion via microSD.
If the Motorola One Vision is faster, the Moto E7 Plus has in its favor the promise of long battery life. With a 5,000 mAh component and more efficient hardware, the smartphone can last up to two days away from the socket, according to the manufacturer, a mark almost impossible to achieve by One Vision with its maximum load of 3,500 mAh.
Both cell phones run Android 10. Therefore, they have several similar software features, such as gestures to open the camera, turn on the flashlight, among other functions. It is important to remember, however, that although it is older, only Motorola One Vision appears in the list of cell phones released by Motorola that are capable of receiving Android 11 in 2021.
In connectivity, Motorola One Vision comes out ahead again for bringing NFC to pay for approach and dual-band Wi-Fi. The Moto E7 Plus only connects to 2.4 GHz networks but brings a physical button on the side to trigger the Google Assistant. Both are compatible with Bluetooth 5.0 and support 4G internet and fingerprint reader on the rear.
Motorola One Vision is available and is currently on sale in online stores for prices in the range of $170 on Amazon. The Moto E7 Plus, which arrived in September 2020 can already be found for about $150.
