Motorola Moto E7 Complete Review: Price in Pakistan 2021
Motorola Moto E7 price in Pakistan: 18,000
Each of us has different requirements and experience with devices. The new Motorola Moto E7 is a relatively budget smartphone – that’s what we’ll talk about in today’s review. The answer to the question “what inexpensive smartphone to buy so as not to be disappointed?” has never been easy. Can the Moto E7 be a good device for the majority of undemanding users? Find out from the review.
Design and build quality
The Motorola E7 case is made of rough plastic that shimmers depending on the angle of incidence of light. Due to its texture, it does not collect fingerprints, and if they do, we do not see them. The smartphone doesn’t meet any standard for water or dust resistance, but Motorola says the case here is hydrophobic.
Means that it has to withstand splashes, taking into account the rubber gasket for the nanoSIM / microSD card tray, I have no doubt about it. By the way, the tray is located on the left, right above the Google Assistant button. On the right side there are volume and power keys. The switch is a bit rough, and because it’s at the same height as the Google Assistant button, on the other hand, the latter has four small bumps to distinguish the key by touch.
On the top there is a 3.5 mm audio jack, on the bottom – a microphone and USB Type-C. At the back we have a dual camera module and an LED that protrudes slightly above the level of the body. At the front is a 6.5-inch screen, flanked by rather thick bezels and a large chin, above which to the right is a notification LED. Motorola Moto E7 weighs 180 grams and measures 164.93 x 75.73 x 8.89 mm.
It is rather long, making it difficult for people with smaller hands to access the top row of buttons. Fortunately, thanks to the rough finish of the case, you don’t have to worry about the phone slipping out. The Moto E7 is available in three body colors: Mineral Gray, Aqua Blue and Satin Coral.
6.5-inch IPS-display Motorola Moto E7 with a resolution of 1600 × 720 pixels and a format of 20: 9. HD + instead of Full HD + portends a lower sharpness of fonts, but in the budget price category this is hardly a big drawback – rather a standard. Plus, if someone hasn’t used a better smartphone before, they won’t notice the difference. Overall, the Moto E7’s screen is pretty good. Contrast and saturation are a little lacking, but the viewing angles and finger sliding across the panel are satisfactory. However, the display does not have an oleophobic coating, as well as the factory protective film – if you need it, you will have to buy an additional one. Of the important points that became clear during testing, I would first of all note the operation of the light sensor, it reacted rather slowly at times.
After unlocking the smartphone, you need to wait about 2 seconds for the brightness to change according to the conditions. The minimum brightness is suitable for comfortable use of the device in the evening / at night, although the maximum brightness may be low in direct sunlight. In the display settings, we can find the blue light filter, dark theme and color modes: natural, enhanced or saturated – in fact, the difference between them is barely noticeable.
Motorola E7 camera
Motorola, probably not wanting to release a smartphone with a single camera, has decided to add a dedicated 2MP (f / 2.4) macro lens to the 48MP f / 1.7 lens. As you know, such macro cameras in smartphones can only be regarded as marketing solutions. The quality of photos taken with the Moto E7’s main lens can be described as basic and sufficient for personal use.
The colors are a little faded, and the photos are rather dark – in addition to the low details, the quality of the photos is adequate for the low price of the device. We can use the maximum 8x digital zoom, but don’t count on too much – the detail is low, there is a lot of noise. Interestingly, the Motorola Moto E7 has a night mode, which came as a big surprise to me.
It is important to note that in some conditions it is effective, in others it is not. At the front, we have a 5MP f / 2.2 camera that’s perfect for basic selfies. Portrait mode works well, although remember, you don’t have to move your phone while taking a photo or the result will be blurry and blurry.
The software of the tested Motorola Moto E7 is actually pure Android, which should be considered a positive thing. A weak processor and only 2GB of RAM – a combination that doesn’t perform well in day to day use. However, the most important features that Motorola is known for are here. I mean gestures. Initially, I confess, I found it difficult to use the phone with full screen gestures, and I used the bottom system control panel. Fortunately, in the end, I quickly mastered everything.
Looking at the characteristics of the Moto E7, you can understand that this smartphone is only capable of providing basic performance. Octa-core processor MediaTek Helio G25 with a clock speed of 2 GHz cores with IMG GE8320 650 MHz and 2 GB of RAM – components not for demanding users.
2 GB of RAM is so small that in everyday use it is felt with every action. In fact, every re-entry into a previously opened application ends with its reboot. Unfortunately, the less RAM, the more trade-offs. In the case of the Moto E7, you have to take into account the rather long launch of applications for the first time, and speaking of games, the time increases even more.
However, paradoxically, nothing freezes – it works slowly but stably. Unfortunately, in most tests, I was unable to test the synthetic performance of the Moto E7 due to the fact that they do not support devices with less than 3 GB of RAM. At the same time, the AnTuTu test stopped immediately after launching.
I was able to run only Geekbench, in which the smartphone received the following results:
- Single-core: 135
- Multi-core: 489
With 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and a weak processor, the Motorola Moto E7 should be even cheaper. Initially, I thought that 11 thousand rubles seemed to be a fair price, but it turned out that at the same price as asking for the E7, you can now buy a Moto E7 Plus with 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory and a Snapdragon 460. Which means, that Moto E7 should be cheaper …
Should you buy?
If you find Moto E7 for a good deal, then, of course, you can consider it for purchase as a very simple smartphone with limited capabilities.
