The4 g7 Plus adds things like smart composition, smile capture, and creates an optimised second image.
Compared to the G6-series these represent quite a jump ahead in terms of performance for similar money.
I like Pure Android if only for its upgradeability.
They are both worthy contenders, but I think spending the extra $100 is worth it – unless you are flat broke then the G7 is damned good too.
The only other worthy contenders are the Nokia 6.1 (Review here – 4.3/5) and 7.1 (Review here 4.9/5 for its fantastic feature/value), but in most areas, the later Motorola g7-series has out-classed them – screen size, RAM, Storage etc. That may be until the Nokia 6.2 and 7.2 – how the wheel turns.
We are going to rate the g7 as a value device typical of its class – it’s a 4.8-out-of-5, and that is very good.
But for $100 – $499 more you start getting into value found at $799 territory, so that is 4.9-out-5 and that is damned good.
Moto Online, Good Guys, Officeworks and Mobileciti have the genuine Australian versions for $399 and $499. We repeat the warning – only buy from authorised retailers.
