In recent years, Motorola has been playing a different game in the smartphone market. A game that is the exact opposite of big smartphone brands like Apple which is providing huge specs for low prices. This is the case with the Motorola Moto E7 which was released by Motorola in December 2020 for just $215. However, 8 months before that, Motorola had also launched the Motorola Moto G Power which now retails for just $125 (Amazon).
The Moto G Power, offered a huge battery, a fast Snapdragon processor a huge FULL HD+ at such a low price which made it a favorite for many. On the other hand, the Moto E7 offered a less powerful processor but with an HD+ display and a smaller battery. It compensated for the downsides with a 48 MP main camera at the rear. Although the Moto E7 Power is a more recent smartphone, the Moto G Power is a really attempting option as some of its specs seem much better.
We are going to compare the Moto E7 vs Moto G Power in terms of the specs to find out what are their differences and what is the best option. But first, here are the overall specs of each device;
The Motorola Moto E7 is a 4G smartphone with a glass front, a plastic frame, and a plastic back. It has a 6.5 inches IPS LCD display with a 720 x 1600 screen resolution and an 82.3% screen-to-body ratio. It runs on Android 10 out of the box and is powered by a MediaTek Helio G25 chipset. It supports up to 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage. The rear camera features a 48 MP main sensor which is supported by a 2 MP macro shooter. At the front, it uses a 5 MP selfie camera with a water drop design. The Moto E7 is equipped with a 4000 mAh battery with a standard 10W fast charging and it also comes with the USB Type-C.

Although it might seem like a great smartphone overall, it has its flaws. It takes forever to charge and the battery doesn’t last long which is an expected result for smartphones running MediaTek chipsets. The screen also appears a bit dull even in full brightness. It’s so bad that even white colors appear as cream. Multi-tasking is also terrible on this phone.
Moto G Power
The Motorola Moto G Power is also a 4G device. It has a glass front, a plastic back, and an aluminum frame. It features a 6.4 inches IPS LCD display with a 1080 x 2300 screen resolution and an 83.0% screen to body ratio. It ships with Android 10 out of the box and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset. It only has 4 GB of RAM which is paired with 64 GB of internal storage. It has a triple camera setup with a 16 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultrawide sensor, and a 2 MP macro shooter which I consider much better than the setup on the Motorola Moto E7. It also has a significantly bigger battery but the same slow 10W fast charging support.

The selfie camera is terrible. After some months of usage, the device starts lagging and hangs from time to time. However, the aluminum frame is great. The fact that it has a 1080 display make’s using it really nice and the 5000 mAh battery can last a whole day on one charge. However, the 10W fast charging is still painfully slow.
