With the best-selling phone on Amazon in 2018, Lenovo had big shoes to fill in the successor to the Moto G6. Fortunately, Lenovo was up to the task. The Moto G7 still offers great value for money and is a worthwhile upgrade for G6 users, while still being reasonably priced.
Overall, the Moto G7 is 50% better than the Moto G6. Although we can not predict whether this phone will surpass its predecessor at Amazon, we can say with certainty that it will challenge the 2018 model thanks to another strong performance. Although there are only a few changes, they are important changes that users will notice right away.

Thanks to a larger display, the G7 is both taller and wider than its predecessor. However, it is slightly thinner (0.02 inches), which should help to make it feel smaller in the hand. It is also 0.18 grams heavier. Like its predecessor, it is equipped with a P2i nano coating that makes the phone water resistant. This means that the G7 will withstand light rain, a bit of sweat or water, but not more.

Next to the SoC, the screen size is the biggest improvement of the Moto G7. The G7 has upgraded the G6's 5.7-inch display to a 6.2-inch powerhouse. With such a large screen, it becomes a potential candidate for the best budget phone for streaming movies.
