SoyaCincau’s best smartphones under RM1,000 (2019)

Moto G7 Power

The Moto G7 Power doesn’t really get much attention, with the market saturated with flashier, more feature-packed offerings instead. But it’s still worth considering the G7 Power for a few reasons.

For one, you get a huge battery (5,000mAh), which Motorola claims can last for up to 3 days. Pretty impressive. And something else which makes this phone a worthwhile choice, of course, is the stock Android experience that Motorola’s Moto Experience gives you. Stock Android phones worth buying are scarce, unless you’re considering the Pixel series—much more expensive, and not officially available in Malaysia.

Where Motorola’s device falls short, however, is the internals of the device—although it isn’t super disappointing given that it retails for less than RM700. It’s powered by an average (compared to its rivals mid-2019) Snapdragon 632, while you get 4 gigs of RAM for the device.

In addition to that, you only get ONE 12MP f/2.0 rear camera that’s capable of shooting 4K videos, along with an 8MP f/2.2 selfie camera. That’s where it falls short, in my opinion, but if you’re looking for a vanilla Android experience that has a huge battery, perhaps this could be the phone for you. But in an age where you get wide-angle, telephoto, or depth sensors in most modern smartphones, your photography options will be severely limited with the Moto G7 Power.

If you head over to Motorola’s store on Lazada, it’s currently available at a discounted price of RM669.
