Motorola Moto E7 line device arouse consumer interest due to their low price since cell phones are increasingly expensive.
The Moto e7 Power launched two years ago with basic configurations and a reduced price, which soon caught the attention of anyone looking for a simple cell phone. But is the Moto e7 Power good and still makes sense in 2023?
To answer this question, check out the analysis of the device’s technical sheet and find out if the purchase is worth it or if it is better to invest in another device to avoid headaches.
The Moto e7 Power was launched with two other models: the Moto e7 and the Moto e7 Plus. The three are very similar, with just a few differences in their settings. But our review focuses only on the Moto e 7 Power.
The model has a plastic back, a smooth, oval-shaped dual camera module in the left corner, and the Motorola logo that also works as a fingerprint reader. The front part is occupied only by the screen and a small centralized drop-shaped notch to house the front camera. The top and side edges of the screen are thin, but the bottom is thicker, an aspect that highlights the simple construction of the phone.
The left side of the device houses the volume buttons, the lock button, and a third one that works as a shortcut to the Google Assistant, which is very welcome for users who use accessibility features. On the right side is located only the hybrid chip drawer; possible to use two chips or a SIM and microSD card to expand the internal storage. The headphone jack is on the top of the device, and the USB-C port is on the bottom.
Screen And Audio
The Moto e7 Power’s screen is consistent with its proposal to be a basic entry-level smartphone. The IPS LCD is 6.5 inches, HD+ resolution, 60 Hz refresh rate, and 380 nits peak brightness. The screen has straightforward technology that does not compromise use in terms of quality, but it is not surprising either. The user can view the contents effectively, but their brightness and contrast levels are low, making viewing difficult on very sunny days.
The audio also doesn’t bring any big surprises and can be classified as essential. For example, it has no stereo sound and no sound enhancement features like Dolby Atmos. There is only one sound output in the bottom corner of the back, which can bother some people because if the device has the sound turned on on some surface, the audio tends to be muffled.
Performance is due to MediaTek’s Helion G25 processor. The chipset is already quite simple and added to just 2 GB of RAM. It can make the user experience somewhat disappointing compared to the standard entry-level smartphones, usually equipped with at least 4 GB of RAM (already a little).
The same goes for internal storage. The Moto e7 Power has only 32 GB of interior space, even devices with 64 GB need to be updated. But on the other hand, you can use the hybrid chip drawer to expand the memory with a microSD of up to 1 TB.
In general, it is possible to take advantage of social networks and more straightforward applications for everyday use, such as WhatsApp. But keep in mind that stuttering and stuttering can happen quite quickly. And if you’re a fan of mobile games, the bad news is that games that demand a lot from the device will only run properly on it with reduced graphics quality.
The photographic set consists of a 13 MP primary camera and a poor 2 MP macro lens for close-up photos of the device. Being a cell phone with modest settings, especially by 2023 standards, it is impossible to expect robust cameras. In practice, the records will have an average quality in environments with good lighting conditions. At night, photos are likely to be much lower resolution.
For selfies, the front camera has only 5 MP, being able to take pictures with low quality. For those who like to record videos, it records in Full HD at 30 frames per second, and the result could be more satisfactory, but it is possible to record the moments to keep as a memory.
Here we have only one point that matches the most current smartphones. The Moto e7 Power has an autonomy of 5,000 mAh, capable of lasting a whole day without needing a new charge, depending on the usage profile of each user. The charger that comes included in the device box is 10W.
