2-minute Review [Positives]
  • Nice, simple, glossy, plastic design, and good build quality
  • The G7 Power's fingerprint sensor has migrated to the back of the phone, nestled in the "Batwing" Motorola dimple - it's pretty well placed
  • There's also fairly fast face unlock
  • Splash resistant body
  • Large 6.2-inch, standard notch display - it has nice colors and good viewing angles
  • Moto Display (always-on display) is still there, and continues to be one of the defining features of the Moto G series
  • Simple, uncluttered stock Android UI, with some very useful Moto customizations - Moto phones continue to offer one of the best software experiences on Android
  • Pretty good camera quality for the price bracket
  • The single rear camera setup does well with outdoor and moderately-lit indoor shots - there is plenty of detail, low noise levels, nice sharpness, and lively and accurate colors - the dynamic range isn't spectacular, but it's quite decent
  • There's also a software portrait mode (though it's not too great)
  • Good selfie camera too - you can get some decent shots especially in well lit scenes - there is lots of resolved detail, good sharpness, high contrast, and true to life colors
  • Selfie portraits are actually better than the rear camera portraits at subject separation and convincing out-of-focus area rendition
  • Good video recording performance too - with support for 4k video recording, and an effective EIS algorithm
  • You can still do the effortless double-twist-to-open-camera gesture from any app
  • Overall, the cameras are pretty good on the G7 Power, comparable to other good camera phones in this price range, and only a shade behind it's senior cousin, the Moto G7
  • The earpiece on the Moto G7 Power also doubles as a loudspeaker - its audio is rich, loud, and deep enough (but because the speaker is not very powerful, its output is quite directional meaning it feels this loud only when it's pointed at you)
  • Excellent battery life through a combination of a huge 5000mAh battery and a low resolution screen - you will get 2+ days of use on average
  • Supports fast charging via the USB-C port
  • The Moto G7 Power is another good "user-experience" phone from Motorola's ranks - and is a good choice for users who are looking for a simple, casual use phone with an outstanding battery life
  • Nice, metal design with a plastic frame surrounding the corners
  • Feels sturdy in the hand
  • Motorola One Power is the first handset from the company’s smartphone shelf to offer a notch display in the Indian market - from the front side, the phone has a striking resemblance to the iPhone X - even at the back, Moto One Power sports similarly vertically stacked dual camera sensors
  • The matte finish saves the device from smudges and fingerprint, which is a common problem with glass cased devices
  • Nice, large, sharp display, with a 19:9 aspect ratio - the colours are quite pleasant and the viewing angles are nice as well
  • The other key USP of the device apart from a large screen and large battery, is that it's part of the Android One series - which means a stock, clean version of Android, plus a promise of regular updates for 2 years
  • Although the UI is stock, Motorola does add some of it's useful proprietary functionality on top - Moto Display (Ambient display) and Moto Actions (gestures)
  • Good, solid mid-range performance backed by the fast, efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 636, the chipset that debuted on Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 Pro - the Moto One Power performs well with almost anything you throw at it - with barely any stutter or lag - it will handle multitasking smoothly and apps are quick to launch - even with the graphically demanding games, you are unlikely to face any hiccups
  • Decent set of dual rear cameras - manage to render decent output in well-lit conditions, with reasonable colour reproduction
  • Portrait shots are just about decent too
  • Decent selfie camera too, with a front LED flash, and software based portrait mode
  • Houses bottom-firing speakers with mono speaker grille placed on both side and USB Type-C port at the centre - delivers good audio quality courtesy of the Dolby Audio that enhances the audio experience - even with volume pitched at the highest level, the phone does not produce shrill sound
  • Extra long battery life, with a gigantic 5000mAh battery - you will get nearly two days-worth of backup with casual usage
  • If you want a stock Android phone with guaranteed updates, a large screen and a large battery - the Motorola One Power is a pretty strong choice - it is easily one of the best value devices that Motorola has launched in Indian in a while - there is competition though, depending on what you value - if you want a better camera, look at the Redmi Note Pro or Mi A2 - if you want a better design, look at the Realme 2 Pro - if you want to still have Android One, but in a more compact device, look at Nokia 6.1 Plus - and if you want to have better RAM, at a lower price, look at the Zenfone Max Pro M1
2-minute Review [Negatives]
  • On the heavy side, at 198g - thanks in large part to the large battery it packs
  • The glossy back panel is super-prone to smudges and fingerprints, and also quite slippery - using a case is pretty much a must with this phone (luckily there is a case included in the retail package)
  • Screen resolution is on the low side though - the emphasis here is to maximise the battery life, and not necessarily give the best display
  • Software updates from Motorola in recent times have been far less frequent compared to before, so if you are look for both a stock Android phone + more updates in the future, 'Android One' devices would be better options
  • While the Snapdragon 632 will give you perfectly decent day-to-day performance, it is still a bit underpowered compared to a lot of the competition - the GPU especially is relatively weak, so this is not a great phone for games (especially heavy duty ones like PUBG)
  • Low light performance could have been better though
  • The device does not however have a compact form - with a thickness of 8.9mm in thickness and weight of 205g, it's definitely on the bulky side
  • No Face unlock (you can of course use Android's built in "smart unlock/trusted face" security feature, but that's somewhat slower and less secure than the custom Face unlock implementations on most smartphones these days)
  • The focus accuracy of the dual rear camera sensors could have been better
  • During low light situations, you will observe a fair amount of noise creeping into the images and loss of detail on the subject
  • Overall, the cameras are ok, but in a similar price bracket, the Moto G6 (and other top camera phones) offer better cameras
