The phone adopts a trending 19:9 design that accommodates a sizeable 5.7-inch notched screen in a fairly compact package, has a powerful Snapdragon 632 processor, and runs the latest Android OS out of the box, meaning Android Q is guaranteed.

Being the cheapest variant in the family, the G7 Play features a big, iPhone X-style notch as opposed to the waterdrop-style version on the standard G7, has a single 13MP camera on a plastic-made back panel, and a smaller (compared to G6 Play) 3000mAh that equals the size used in the G7. It seems some markets like the U.S. will get support for 10W rapid charging that pumps the maximum amount of charge possible by a non-fast charging brick while others like the UK will make do with standard charging.

We aren’t sure what is at play here, but it seems some markets get a selfie LED flash to support the 8MP lens on the front, so let us know if yours has it or not. What is a small but much-needed design change is the switch to a USB-C port, but the fingerprint scanner keeps its place on the back.

The 5.7-inch display screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and considering its just an HD panel, the battery life on the G7 Play should be excellent. Motorola’s Moto Display is on board, too. To keep it running smooth, the Lenovo-owned company opted for the new Snapdragon 632 chipset, but with price-conscious buyers the target market, it is allied to just 2GB of RAM. On the brighter side, the 32GB of internal storage available can be expanded via a microSD card of up to 512GB, which is not usual in this price range.

Moto G7 Play pricing and availability

The Moto G7 Play was unveiled in Brazil on February 7th and started selling in the country and Mexico as well on the very day, but it arrives in the U.S. and Canada in spring 2023. Those in Europe will get it in February 2023, although the UK-specific variant will begin selling in March.

In terms of pricing, info on the G7 Play’s tag in markets outside the U.S and UK, among them Canada, India, and the rest of Europe and Asia, remains unknown, but not for long. We will update this post pretty soon when we get it.

How is it different from Moto G7?

Like previous Play variants, the Moto G7 Play is the weaker variant in this series, even compared to the debuting Moto G7 Power that has just taken over the big battery mantle from the G6 Play. But how does it compare to the standard G7? Read on…

Cheaper, plastic design

Whereas the standard Moto G7 is dressed in 3D glass, the Moto G7 Play is built from plastic. Depending on how you want to look at it, this plastic design could be a boon for some, especially since it’s one of the major reasons the G7 Play is the cheapest in the G7 series. It seems some markets like the U.S. will have a water-repellant body while others like the UK won’t unless this is just some error in the respective markets’ official specs sheets.

Smaller display

The Moto G7 Play comes with a 5.7-inch HD+ display screen, way smaller than the 6.2-inch panel used on the standard G7. Furthermore, the FHD+ resolution on the latter means you are getting crispier pictures compared to the Play variant, but if it makes you feel any better, both screens are protected by the same Corning Gorilla Glass 3 technology.

Bigger notch

Both the Moto G7 and G7 Play have a notch on the display panel. However, the former has a more appealing, waterdrop-style notch while the latter’s is a bigger (and not so eye-catching) notch like the ones we saw back in 2023. This is the same design language found on the Moto G7 Power.

The bigger notch houses an LED selfie flash for the U.S. market, but this feature is missing in the UK. Quite strange decisions here, Moto.

Single rear camera

The standard Moto G hoped onto the dual-lens camera wagon last year with the G6 and the Moto G7 isn’t relenting, however, this feature hasn’t made it to the Play variant. Instead, you still have to make do with a single-lens shooter on the back. Motorola says only the main shooter can record 1080p videos of up to 30fps.

Face unlock

Moto G7 Play competition

At $200 (£149 in the UK), the Moto G7 Play definitely has plenty of competition to deal with. If anything, this is one of the most competitive smartphone segments, but looking at the specs and features on offer, the G7 Play stands a chance, especially in markets like the U.S. where Chinese companies that dominate the budget smartphone segment are not yet established. But in markets like India, some parts of Europe, and Asia, the G7 Play has some high tides to sail through.

For a similar price, for instance, you can walk away with Xiaomi Mi A2 Lite that promises timely software updates on a monthly basis (and not twice or thrice a year like in the case of the G7 Play) and a clean Android One UI, a bigger battery, a dual-lens camera, and equally powerful hardware specs. Alternatively, the Asus ZenFone Max M2 should be a good option too, especially since it also comes with unadulterated software, a dual-lens camera and a bigger, 4000mAh battery.

The newly launched Redmi Note 7 should also pose a huge threat to the Moto G7 Play, especially since it has a more powerful chipset to offer, a bigger battery, a bigger and crisper display, and boasts of a massive 48MP camera on the back.

Other devices that may also stand in the way of the G7 Play include Redmi Note 6 Pro, Honor 8X, Honor 10 Lite, and so on.

Why buy it?

For fans of Motorola, the Moto G7 Play is a great midrange phone, especially if one is running on a budget. While there isn’t anything compelling about the G7 Play apart from the fact that it’s a really affordable Motorola-branded smartphone, it should still turn out to be a handy device for most people out there not looking to spend a fortune on a handheld.
