Moto G7 Power with 5000 mAh battery

Charging is via the USB-c port and there is support for fast charging. To make that long battery life possible, the 6.2-inch screen has a relatively low resolution of 1570 by 720 pixels.
Furthermore, the Moto G7 Power is equipped with excellent hardware. The device is powered by a Snapdragon 632 chip and, like the G7 Plus, has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. At the back is a 12-megapixel camera, selfies you make with the 8-megapixel front camera. The device costs 209 euros and comes in two colors: black and purple.
Moto G7 Play
With a suggested retail price of 149 euros, the Moto G7 Play is the cheapest smartphone from the Moto G7 series. The device is characterized by the compact housing, where a hefty 5.7-inch screen (1512 by 720 pixels) is incorporated. The phone has the same Snapdragon 632 chip, but less memory (2GB RAM) and storage space (32GB). The latter can also be expanded via a micro SD card. The 13-megapixel camera is also less good.
Unlike many other smartphones in this price range, the Moto G7 Play has a USB-c connection and fingerprint scanner. The battery has a capacity of 3000 mAh, but Motorola, unfortunately, does not deliver a quick charger. If you are going for the G7 Play, then you can choose from the colors dark blue and black.
