Design

  • 165.2 x 75.7 x 9.2 mm, 200 g
  • Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by)

The plastic back of the Moto E7 Plus has a gradient finish and a matte finish to it. The rear panel doesn’t look cheap at all and it doesn’t retain fingerprint smudges as well.

The square-shaped camera module seems to have been taken from the G9 Play as well as the fingerprint sensor with the Motorola logo.

On the front, it has a teardrop notch just like the G9 Play. The side bezels and the chin is also the same as the G9 Play.

The phone is easy to handle as it has a nice grip. It is easy to hold on a single hand too. Overall build quality is quite nice and looks good as well.

Display

  • 6.5 inches IPS LCD
  • 720 x 1600 pixels
  • 60Hz

Motorola Moto E7 Plus comes with a 6.5-inch Max Vision HD+ display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels. It is an IPS LCD panel with a 20:9 aspect ratio an 81.6% screen-to-body ratio.

The display panel has neutral color and is nice to look at but the viewing angle is not impresive.

The HD+ display panel is really good for content viewing. The brightness is fine indoors but could be slightly uncomfortable outdoors. But it is fine for a budget phone.

Performance

  • Qualcomm SM4250 Snapdragon 460 (11 nm)
  • Octa-core (4×1.8 GHz Kryo 240 & 4×1.6 GHz Kryo 240)
  • Adreno 610
  • 64GB 4GB RAM

Moto E7 Plus is equipped with a Snapdragon 460 chipset. Along with that, it has 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.

It’s an entry-level chipset introduced by Qualcomm in early 2020. Snapdragon 460 is using 4 Kryo 240 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz along with 4 Kryo 240 cores clocked at 1.6 GHz. It’s Adreno 610 GPU is the one used on the Snapdragon 665 chipset.

I played Asphalt 9 and PUBG Mobile on the E7 Plus. Asphalt 9 runs pretty decent with no major issues. While the PUBG Mobile is also playable on Smooth grpahics and High FPS setting.

Moto E7 Plus is not a gaming-oriented budget phone but games are playable. Its gaming performance is not bad but not impressive either.

It flys through normal tasks though. It can easily handle normal browsing, app browsing, navigating, and app switching.

Camera

Moto E7 Plus comes with a dual-camera setup on the rear. It has a 48MP main sensor and a 2MP depth sensor.

NORMAL PHOTOS

The photos from the main sensor have good enough detail and the color tilt towards the neutral side. The dynamic range is average as the daylight photos look appealing but the low light photos do not have good detail.

With low details, the night photos do not look appealing. The night mode does improve the exposure but it introduced weird artifacts and smudges in the photo.

The main sensor works well during daylight but the detail level is only average.

If you want more detail then you can also capture photos with a 48MP camera but I prefer normal mode to the 48MP mode.

PORTRAIT PHOTOS

Portrait mode works well as the edge detection and background blur is on point. The portrait photos look really nice for a phone of this caliber.

FRONT CAMERA

The front camera is not as impressive as the rear camera. The selfies look a bit soft and there’s not much detail on the face.

The portrait mode is also good for a budget phone.

Video

Moto E7 Plus can capture videos up to 1080p 30fps. As you’d expect with budget phones, the videos have noise even in daylight but the color reproduction is quite good.

Battery

  • Non-removable Li-Po 5000 mAh battery
  • Charging 10W

E7 Plus has a 5000 mAh battery which is more than enough for a day of usage. I was getting around 7 hours of average screen on time and still had 15-20% battery left in the tank. This phone will easily last for more than a day.

As for charging, the 10W charging takes about 3 hours to charge it from 0 to 100.

Security and Speaker

The rear-mounted fingerprint scanner is quite quick and the face unlocks also works well under good lighting.

The E7 Plus single bottom-firing speaker is loud enough and the clarity is also acceptable for a budget phone.

Software

I will say that E7 Plus is using Stock OS with Android 10. You get the same icons, app drawer, and drop-down notification as stock Android.

One of the best features is the Lock Screen display that lets you interact with notifications even when the screen is locked.

You even get to customize the E7 Plus with different icons and color themes. Furthermore, it provides some nifty gesture features like a double chop to the flashlight, twists to open the camera, and more.

It probably has the best software experience among all of the budget phones under Rs. 20,000.

Conclusion

Moto E7 Plus rocks decent performance with good cameras and impressive battery life. It is certainly one of the best budget phones right now.

The stock os provides a much better software experience and it helps the phone hide some of its flaws. Overall, I really like how it looks and how it performs. The finish on the rear panel also looks really impressive even though it’s a plastic panel.
