Re: Really? No Band 71 for G7?

2019-04-14, 14:42 PM

International versions do not have 5 gigahertz Wi-Fi NFC band 71 and some other bands that Verizon needs. Despite that I still bought the international G7 power larger storage Ram of the international version. I don't know why they crippled the US version of 3 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of storage while the rest of the planet got 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Band 71 is completely useless for almost all of Colorado and has no really ETA of a roll out.

Just got a G7 Play Dual SIM factory Unlocked "International Model" XT1952-2  and have yet to personally verify band 71 support. Moto confirms it *does* support Band 71 based on my IMEI. I confirm it doesnt currently support 5GHz WiFi (nor does it have NFC). Alleged band support :-

 

"Networks + Bands
Carrier Aggregation, 4G LTE (DL Cat 7/ UL Cat 6), CDMA / EVDO Rev A, UMTS / HSPA+, GSM / EDGE 2G: GSM band 2/3/5/8 CDMA BC0/BC1/BC10, 3G: WCDMA band 1/2/4/5/8, 4G: FDD LTE band 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/13/14/17/20/25/26/29/30/66/71, TDD LTE band 38/39/40/41/41 HPUE"

 

I'll confirm shortly, since Loveland, CO appears to have a band 71 tower on TMobile...

Re: Really? No Band 71 for G7?

Hi, I'm still confused on whether Moto G7 supports Band 71 or not. It's listed on the website that G7 Play and G7 Power support band 71, but not G7. Does anyone know if Band 71 support has now been added to G7 phones? Is this something that can be done later with a software update?

 

Thanks for yoru help

G7 does not have band 71 and adding it after the fact is likely impossible as it would need to be recertified.

Thanks for the quick reply. Just wondering if Motorola has any plans soon to add band 71 support on G7 phones. Trying to see if I should wait a little while before ordering one.

 

Thans again

Yup, monumental fail by Lenovo. The G7 was the phone I wanted in the price range I desired. But the "Flagship" G7 I failed due to lack of Band 71 support. I ended up spending $600 on a OnePlus 6T.

I do not know if has the same radio and antennas as the G7 variants. If it did then a firmware update could enable Band71. Different hardware, then no.
