Moto G7 Play


Motorola's phones with a "Play" suffix have typically been the lowest cost, simplest members of that year's Moto G family. There's no real change here for the Motorola Moto G7 Play, which features lower specifications than the rest of the 2019 Moto G7 family, but with an accordingly lower price point. That could make it a good match for the budget-strapped buyer who still wants a quality device.

Design

  • 5.7-inch display
  • Plastic body
  • Headphone jack

Camera

  • 13MP rear camera
  • The better G7 phones will outperform it

Performance

  • Snapdragon 632 is a good mid-range processor
  • Only 2GB of RAM
  • Android 9

Battery life

  • 3,000mah battery
  • 10W rapid charger for quick battery boosts

Early outlook

  • The Motorola Moto G7 Play could be another budget hit

Pricing and availability

  • The Motorola Moto G7 Play is priced internationally at US$200
  • No word as yet on local availability or pricing

It's pretty common for Motorola to delay releasing its phones in Australia relative to the rest of the world. Internationally, the Motorola Moto G7 Play sells for US$200, which, at current exchange rates, should suggest pricing of around $280-$300 or thereabouts.

Motorola hasn't announced pricing or availability for any of the Motorola Moto G7 lines in Australia as yet, but it seems highly unlikely we won't see them here at some point in 2019.
