Offering a near-unskinned version of Android, solid specs for the money and a giant 5000mAh cell, the Moto G7 Power may not be cutting-edge, or the most alluring phone on the market.

The camera is good, yes, and the chipset is dependable. But the other key strength lies in the vanilla Android Pie. The ninth major Android version is still a rare sight on budget phones and yet Moto has it on all of its devices.

A giant-battery smartphone for buyers on a budget

The interest in the Moto G7 Power will circulate around the huge battery. It's one of the biggest you'll find in a device at this level and given the approachable price point, you get a lot for your money. While the hardware specs hit most of the same points as the G7 and G7 Plus, there's a slight step down in camera and the display notch obviously looks a little more dated.
