G7 Power Needs 4/64 Option

Been keeping an eye on leaks and info on this phone for several months.  It really needs a 4/64 option, as was suggested might be available in some markets, rather than just 3/32.  I have an E5 Plus and RAM and internal storage are barely passable and require lots of tweaks to run okay if you use a lot of apps.  With the Snapdragon 632 and the higher-res screen, battery life will be likely be no better or slightly worse, and the performance gains will be limited by the 3/32 configuration and background apps will likely still be closed too often.

Thank you for the feedback about the RAM/Storage, I will definitely pass it along. As for the battery life, the moto g7 power will get up to 3 days on a single charge.

While the three days bit is good for marketing, in the real world of lots of mixed use, the E5 Plus with its 5000mah battery does about a 12-hour day before getting down to 15-20%.

I see Motorola is launching the G7 Power with the 4/64 option in India today, and it appears that version is available in Europe as well.  Please don't limit the US market to the 3/32 - it's not a significant step up from the e5 Plus and won't be worth buying for anyone that runs a lot of apps/navigation. etc.

Ya just saw it on the uk page it says 4/64.  But 32 iia still twice as muxh as the 16 in my g4 play.  It s better than nothing.  And I also noticed the uk version has nfc.

Re: G7 Power Needs 4/64 Option

I'm beyond frustrated at the crippled 32gb 3gb Ram version they released to the US market only. I've been waiting a long time for this phone to have them cripple it. I'm waiting for an affordable phone that has a large battery and at least 64GB storage and 4gb RAM. Why do we get the screw Americans Edition when the rest of the planet gets a drastically better phone for less money? I seriously hate being abused by Motorola Lenovo this way. Do they think we're stupid?  I can buy the international version for less money from Australia than the crippled version in the US.
