Recommendations, please

I have a Moto Z Play, but the battery is shot. Thinking of replacing soon, but want recommendations. Want lots of memory. I’m a photo-aholic apparently. Also, battery that will last well and an sd card option. Thinking about the Moto G7 or the Moto Z4. A big difference in cost, so looking for recommendations from those who have them. So disappointed they have not come on sale since Christmas as I’ve been watching daily for about 7-8 weeks now. Which do you recommend and why? or why not?

See Moto G-7 sale prices directly form Motorola. RW is WAY overpriced. My wife and I have each had 3 different Motos with RW and been very satisfied with them.

My wife and I were looking at new phones also and took advantage of a ‘sale’ on the Motorola page. I got the G7 at full price ($299) and got a G6 for free for her. Just ordered the other day and haven’t received them yet, so can’t speak from experience about quality, but all the reviews I saw were good for the type of phone I wanted. You can also get a G7 for $199 if you are only looking for 1 phone.

Since you are coming from a Z series phone… and since camera is an important feature for you… I would recommend the Z4.

We have a G7 in the house…and the camera is not that great. Otherwise it’s a great solid phone that serves us well at that price point.

Another key feature missing from the G series of phones is NFC.

You may find this useful.

My Moto G7 Play is less than a week old and we are still trying to decide if the nose-too-big-on-all-these-cameras is better or if, in fact, our noses are really that large. Overall, I think the G7 Play is a real bargain at $200 + shipping from Republic for an unlocked phone backed by responsive and helpful service.

I will post a review of my G7 sometime this weekend. So far, it’s more than I expected and really more than I need.


Thank you! This was very helpful! What is NFC, by the way?

Do you know if an unlocked phone from amazon will still work on RW if it’s one of the same phones RW sells? I understand I would need the SIM kit, but want to be sure I don’t get a phone and then have it not be compatible. That would be an expensive pain.

NFC=near field communication, which is mostly used for Android pay and a quick pairing of Bluetooth devices/

If it is the EXACT phone Republic sells, meaning the US factory unlocked version. Some advice about that here: How to Find a Compatible Unlocked Phone
