How much does the Moto E7 cost?

When we say "less than £100" the Moto E7 costs £99.99 in the UK, and while that's only just below three figures, it doesn't detract from the fact that there seems to be a lot of smartphone here for the price.

For reference, the beefier Moto E7 Plus costs £129.99.

When is the Moto E7 available to buy?

The Moto E7 was announced on 24 November and is available to pick up in the UK from Motorola's own site and at Tesco, starting 1 December, however, wider availability from other retailers, including Amazon, Argos, Carphone Warehouse, EE, John Lewis and O2 will kick off from January 2021.

The Satin Coral colour is exclusive to Motorola's own site, while the phone can be had elsewhere in Mineral Grey and Aqua Blue.

The Moto E7 Plus is available now from Motorola's website and online sellers such as Amazon.

What features does the Moto E7 offer?

While the Moto E7 may look very similar to its namesake in the existing Plus model, there are a few notable differences that help bring the price down.

Motorola is keen to push that the E7 will offer up to 36 hours of use per charge (roughly a day and a half) and boasts a quad-pixel 48Mp camera that totes superior low light performance to its predecessor.
