On paper, the G7 Plus is the more exciting model with OIS, the 27-watt charger and stereo speakers, but the Moto G7 is likely to be more than adequate for some and at £239, it's a steal for the finish.

Tech Advisor

Comes with a notch, Android Pie and a great screen

from Tech Advisor

The G series has always been good value and it remains so even as its price continues to rise. An outstanding display, clean Android 9 Pie with thoughtful Moto additions and improved cameras means this will likely be the best G series phone yet. There are three other G7 phones in the series but, as ever, the G7 will be best for most people.
