Motorola is no stranger to packing big batteries into affordable phones, and the recently unveiled Moto E7i Power continues that trend with a 5,000mAh battery costing just £ 79 (around $ 110 / AU $ 140).
That makes it one of the cheapest smartphones you can buy, and Motorola claims the battery will last up to two days. More specifically, the Moto E7i Power can apparently handle up to 14 hours of streaming video, up to 12 hours of web browsing, or up to 76 hours of streaming music.
Other than that battery, the Moto E7i Power sounds less impressive, but at least in line with what you’d expect at just a double-digit price.
It has a 6.5-inch 720 x 1600 display, a low-end octa-core Unisoc SC9863A chipset, only 2 GB RAM, 32 GB storage, a microSD card slot, a fingerprint scanner and a dual-lens camera, with a 13 MP main sensor and a 2 MP macro snapper.
There’s also a 5MP front camera, a dedicated Google Assistant button and – as you’d expect – the Moto E7i Power has a plastic build. Finally, the phone runs the lightweight Android 10 Go edition and comes in Tahiti Blue and Coral Red shades.
While we’ve yet to test the Moto E7i Power, based on the spec list, we wouldn’t expect much in the way of power or camera capabilities, but given the price, that big battery and fairly large screen might be enough.
If you like the sound of it, you can buy it from Amazon, Argos, JLP and Tesco ‘in the coming weeks’ according to Motorola, although it is not clear at the time of writing whether the Moto E7i Power will be launching in other regions , such as the US and Australia.
