Moto G7 is a mid-range smartphone. On paper, the device seems to be too overpriced. The device holds a configuration which is easily available under 10k price segment.
Talking about the competition in this price range of around 17K, the real competitors of this smartphone are Samsung Galaxy A30, Redmi Note 7 Pro, Galaxy M30, Zenfone Max Pro M2 and Oppo K1. So, the competition in this price range is very high.
If compared with the competition, the smartphone stands nowhere close neither in terms of specification nor in any other aspects.
Overall, We don’t recommend Moto G7 to buy in this price range. However, at the time of writing this article, our first recommendation will be Redmi Note 7 Pro (Flash Review).
