Colossal battery
Decent perks trickled down from Z series
Lackluster cameras + display

The Moto G7 Power is our favorite from Motorola's budget G7 series because it fills  a very particular niche: the biggest battery you can find this side of a 5G phone, and for much cheaper than a flagship.

The 5,000mAh battery really is the standout feature here, which should last you days plural. Everything else isn't bad, with a Snapdragon 632 processor and 3 or 4GB. The 32GB baseline storage (64GB upgraded) isn't great, but it's expandable via microSD  up to 1TB. 

In other words, aside from a decent but not spectacular 12MP camera, the phone has few obvious shortcomings at its price ($249 at launch in February 2019, but can be had for cheaper by now).
