Screen and design
The Motorola phones are very similar when it comes to display. Both have a 6.5-inch screen, HD+ resolution (1600 x 720 pixels), 269 PPI density, and 60 Hz refresh rate. The LCD panel consumes more battery power but promises sharp images.
The design is another point in common: both repeat the 20:9 format, being long and narrow. The front camera is housed in the drop-shaped notch, while the rear cameras are housed in a square centered at the top. Other similarities are the fingerprint scanner on the rear and the presence of a dedicated Google Assistant button.
The Moto E7 comes in metallic gray, aquamarine, and copper versions. The Moto E7 Plus, on the other hand, is available in blue and bronze colors.
Another point in common is the rear camera set. Both models come with a dual camera, consisting of a 48 MP main sensor and f/1.7 aperture, plus a 2 MP depth sensor and f/2.4 aperture, which helps in Portrait Mode captures. The sensor size is the same on both.
Although the Moto E7 is a more basic model, Motorola also offers some photographic features. Both phones have Quad Pixel, which combines four pixels into one to increase light capture, as well as Night Vision, a feature that helps improve photos in dark environments.
The Moto E7 Plus has the advantage in the front camera because of its 8 MP against the Moto E7’s 5 MP. In terms of video recording, both record in Full HD at a speed of 30 frames per second. Neither of them comes with video stabilization.
Performance and Storage
One of the main differences between the Motorola phones is in the processor – with an advantage for the Moto E7. The smartphone comes with MediaTek’s Helio G25, with eight cores up to 2 GHz of speed. There are two RAM options: 2 GB or 4 GB. The Moto E7 Plus, on the other hand, uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 460, an octa-core of up to 1.8 GHz that operates in conjunction with 4 GB RAM.
Storage for the Moto E7 includes 32 GB or 64 GB versions, with microSD expansion up to 512 GB. Moto E7 Plus has 64 GB and can support microSD cards up to 256 GB.
The Moto E7 Plus has the advantage in battery, as it comes with a 5,000 mAh component. Motorola guarantees that the device can stay up to two full days away from the socket. The powerful battery should still guarantee up to 107 hours of music or 21 hours of videos.
The Moto E7 has a 4,000 mAh component, which should be enough to keep the device running for up to 36 continuous hours. Both come with a 10 W charger in the box.
Android Version and Additional Features
Both devices came out of the factory with Android 10. However, there is no prediction that the Moto E7 line will receive Android 11, the latest version of Google’s system that brings new security updates and unreleased emojis.
Both offer Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, fingerprint scanner, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, and LTE connection – in other words, they do not work on 5G. The Moto E7 Plus has micro USB 2.0 input, while the Moto E7 relies on the modern USB-C standard. The devices lack NFC, the proximity communication system that has become popular for payments.
Pricing and Availability
The Moto E7 is available for purchase from $149 while the Moto E7 Plus can already be found for values starting at $176.
