The Motorola Moto G7 is a fine budget handset, but it's very much a case of Motorola simply keeping pace with the budget market, rather than leading it.

Motorola Moto G7

While rumours continue to swirl around Motorola re-entering the premium market with a proposed foldable successor to the Motorola RAZR line, its core market, especially in Australia, has long been its G-series phones. They're affordable, powerful within their budget range and generally good if rather safe picks for those after a new smartphone.

That's the story of the Motorola Moto G7 in a nutshell. It's an improvement over last year's Motorola Moto G6 under the hood, but it's not the most exciting budget phone we've seen.

Motorola hasn't massively tweaked the Motorola Moto G7 from last year's iteration of the same phone, and that's an approach with some definite upsides. If you like Motorola's mostly-soft-touch approach to Android, this is a good option for tweaking. Performance upgrades keep it apace and in some cases ahead of the competition.

However, the camera technology isn't the best, and neither is the underlying design, which is starting to feel a little tired. If you're after a conservative-looking phone, that might not be a big concern.

The Moto G7 also has to compete with its own siblings in this space, so it's worth considering if the Motorola Moto G7 Plus might meet your needs better. If battery life is a concern, the Motorola Moto G7 Power packs in 2,000mAh more than the Motorola Moto G7 – and at a lower price point too.

    If you're a fan of Motorola's general approach to its phones, you could consider the slightly more pricey Motorola Moto G7 Plus, although it's built on essentially the same frame as the Motorola Moto G7:
