While it probably won’t last a full 7 days of being always on, you could most likely get through a whole week if you turn it off completely at night or when not in use. The camera is totally acceptable too. For $250-$300, the excellent battery life is worth it alone, but the Moto G7 Power turns out...

Still the budget phones to beat

from The Verge

To me, the G7 Power really feels like the Moto G7 to get. Its battery life is incredible and worth the cost-cutting that Motorola did elsewhere. When you’ve got a $250 phone that’s plenty good at a smartphone’s core duties and can handily outlast a Galaxy S10 Plus or iPhone XR, that’s pretty special.

Amazing battery life

from Tom's Guide

For the most part, it's a fine option for a cheap phone, with performance that's serviceable (so long as you don't game) and a software experience and selection of features that are among the finest in its class. For $249, that's fine. But the G7 Power stands apart in one big way: battery life.

Excellent performance, two-day battery life, and an attractive design for a budget-friendly price

from PC Magazine

The Moto G7 Power offers excellent performance and an appealing design at a very attractive price point. And while it costs more than the Moto E5 Play and Nokia 3.1, its better display and faster processor make it a no-brainer for the price. It's the best handset you can buy for under $250.

The Moto G7 Power is all about that 5,000mAh battery, and that's what you really have to want. If battery life is your top priority by far, then this is the device for you. Everything else about this device is just...fine. The camera is mediocre despite some fun features, the display is pretty great, although a higher resolution would be nice, and the lack of RAM holds back the performance.

Unbeatable battery life on a budget

from Digital Trends

As the middle child of the G7 family the G7 Power lacks the glitz and bluster of the more expensive Moto G7 and it costs $50 more than the smaller Moto G7 Play, but it definitely has its charms. This is a really dependable workhorse of a phone that offers unrivaled battery life and solid performance.

A great choice for anyone that cares most about battery life

from Tech Advisor

The G7 Power is built to a price, but what you get for your money is impressive for the most part. Obviously, the stand-out feature is battery life but while you trade off screen resolution, it's not a bad display at all and you get all the same software features that you get with the G7.

Quite dependable in both hardware and software

The G7 Power has a large screen and a long-lasting battery, something that few makers are ready to offer. You can even use it as a power bank if you purchase the appropriate cable.

The G7 Power has a large screen and a long-lasting battery, something that few makers are ready to offer. You can even use it as a power bank if you purchase the appropriate cable. The camera is good, yes, and the chipset is dependable. But the other key strength lies in the vanilla Android Pie. The ninth major Android version is still a rare sight on budget phones and yet Moto has it on all of its devices.
