It's disappointing that the better spec'd device, the G7 Plus, won't be available in the US. Its spec sheet checks all the boxes that a budget phone should and is priced around $340.

Still, once G7 becomes available in the US, it has the makings of a budget smartphone that performs like a flagship phone -- something Motorola has been able to achieve for a few years now with its G-series of smartphones. And the G7 Power with its massive 5,000mAh battery will be appealing for those who prioritize battery life over above all else.
