The latest budget Motorola, the Moto E7i Power, retails at £79 and is available to buy soon.
Ever since the first Motorola E launched, the company has maintained its reputation of offering features from higher-end phones at a far more affordable price point.
Of course the phones lack the same high-level performance, such as high-definition displays, top-end processors for graphic intensive games, or the best possible camera experience – but they are a good blend of functionality and affordability.
With the 5,000mAh battery, the E7i Power offers exceptional battery life, while the 6.5-inch display will prove great for viewing photos and video (you can enjoy up to 14 hours of video playback), or just to get the most from your favourite social media application.
The phone has a dual-camera set up on the back with a 13-megapixel primary wide angle camera, and a secondary 2-megapixel macro camera. On the front, within the teardrop notch, is a 5-megapixel selfie camera.
The phone is run on a UNISOC SC9863A octo-core chipset, and comes with 2GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded with memory cards.
Pricing and Availability
The Moto E7i Power comes in two colours – Tahiti Blue or Coral Red – and will be available to purchase from Amazon, Argos, John Lewis and Tesco for £79.
