Motorola E7 Plus is Motorola’s latest entry in the Smartphone world.After the flagship Motorola Edge Plus the company has been focussing on the mid-range segment and to be honest has produced some great phones.For example the Motorola One Fusion+ or the Motorola G8 Power Lite are quite successful phones.
Well the MotoIrola E7 Plus is a low budget phone and features some very attractive specs.If you are looking for a phone below 10000 INR then this is a pretty easy choice.It is priced at 9499 INR only (India) and the specs sheet is worth a look.
The Motorola E7 Plus looks mid-range to be honest.Obviously at the price point the phone offers plastic back and frame as expected.But it is water repellent meaning it can withstand the sudden splashes.Bezels are prominent specially on the chin(bottom).The phone is 9.18mm thick and weighs 218g.
On the back is a dual camera set-up.The fingerprint sensor is also rear mounted.Talking of biometrics the phone also features face unlock besides the compulsory pattern or password unlock.In respect to buttons and ports the Motorola E7 Plus houses a 3.5mm headphone jack,a bottom mounted speaker and a dedicated Google Assistant button.
A 6.5″ IPS LCD display is featured with 1600×720 resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio.The big display and aspect ratio ensures immersive video watching experience which is above par for a phone of this price.
Like all Motorola phones this phone also runs Stock Android with the usual features like fast flash and screenshot shortcuts.You unbox the phone with Android 10 and almost sure to get updated to Android 11 soon.The Motorola software features include Three Finger Screenshot, Screenshot Editor, Flip for DND,Pick Up to Silence and Lift to Unlock.
Under the hood is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 chipset clocking maximum 1.8GHz in the octa core processor.The GPU is Adreno 610.
4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage is housed.The Motorola E7 Plus houses a hybrid dual SIM slot tray for dual nano 4G SIM s or a single sim and a micro SD card through which you can expand storage upto 512GB.
The primary camera is a 48MP f/1.7 sensor with HDR and features like Night Vision,Auto Smile Capture etc.The other camera in the dual module on the rear is a 2MP depth sensor for your portraits.1080p videos can be captured.In a nutshell the camera modes as advertised are Auto Smile Capture, Night Vision, Smart Composition,Hi Res Zoom, Manual Mode, Portrait Mode, Cutout,HDR,Spot Colour, Panorama, Live Filter,Raw Photo Output, Watermark, Burst Shot, Best Shot, Google Lens Integration,Time Lapse Video, Hyperlapse Video and Slow Motion videos.
On the front is a tear drop notch selfie shooter of 8MP with f/2.2.The selfie shooter also supports portrait mode and Auto Smile Capture or Face Beauty mode.Other advertised features are Manual Mode,Burst Shot, Best Shot, Watermark,Timer, Gesture Selfie, Live Filter,Spot Colour, Timelapse Video and Hyperlapse Video.
BATTERY AND COLOURS
The Motorola E7 Plus houses a 5000mAH battery but no fast charging.A compulsory 10W charging is supported.The battery claims to support 21hours video playback,or enjoy 107hours of music or 15 hours of internet browsing on a single charge.
Twilight Orange and Misty Blue are the colour options.
A lot of these low budget smartphones have launched in the last few days like Realme C12.But the Motorola E7 Plus brings quite a handful for its price.The stock Android experience, the 48MP primary camera, the big battery,the Motorola branding and most importantly the price below 10000 INR makes the phone a good and recommendable one.One of my personal liking for this phone is because of the fact that it doesn’t boast of any extra cameras which in truth are useless.
