Motorola 2021 e-and-g-series – good value for all

Motorola 2021 e-and-g-series

Motorola 2021 e-and-g-series offer something for all with prices from $159 to $299. These provide incredible value and feature sets that raise the bar in the value market.

We have been impressed with the companies resurgence in and Motorola 2021 e-and-g-series reflect the new way for moto. It is putting a lot of effort into solving Joe and Jane Averages pain points.

The Motorola 2021 e-and-g-series its about ‘bang for buck’ without sacrificing quality or reliability.

We are just about ready to publish the review on the $199 moto e7 with a huge 6.5” HD+ screen, 48MP snapper (binned to 12MP), 4000mAh battery using the new power-sipping MediaTek Helio G25. Spoiler – it rates very well.

The $159 moto e7 power (essentially the same as the e7) has 13MP snapper and a massive 5000mAh battery. OK, you don’t get NFC at this price, but you do get a good, honest, Motorola backed phone – quality that you can count on.

We have not seen the $249 moto g10 and $299 g 30 yet, but these look pretty good on paper.

“Motorola is more committed than ever to pushing boundaries. Our Motorola 2021 e-and-g series embody our mission to bring exceptional value and outstanding features to Australians”.

Danny Adamopoulos, General Manager of Sales, APAC for Mature Markets, Motorola.

Moto g10 and g30 specs

Quick take – has everything you need, including USB-C, NFC, Wi-Fi AC, BT 5.0 and a 6.5” screen. The G30 is better value with a faster SD662, 90Hz screen and fast charge.

Moto e7 and e7 Power specs

Quick take – the e7 has a better camera, more RAM/Storage and a smaller 4000mAh battery. Performance-wise both will be the same.
