Motorola’s latest flagship is the G7, which comes with 64GB of internal storage — unless you pick up the G7 Play or Power which both ship with just 32GB. The good news is you can take some of the extra money you saved buying the phone to upgrade your storage via a microSD card. Motorola phones support microSD up to 512GB so you can go all-out if you want to.
Go all-out on external storage
Samsung 512GB EVO Plus
Samsung offers a maxed-out microSD for your Moto G7 that’s definitely expensive, but it’s still a great deal if you want every gigabyte of extra storage you’re allowed. This is a great option if you’ve got a large media library you want to transfer over to your phone.
Kingston Canvas React 512GB
This Class 10, UHS-I microSDXC card from Kingston features a 512GB capacity and advertises read speeds up to 80MB/s and write speeds up to 40MB/s. It’s not quite as fast as others on this list, but with the SD adapter, you’ll be able to easily load up all your favorite media for your phone.
An Elite choice
PNY Elite 512GB
PNY’s 512GB microSD is the most expensive on our list but it’s well-reviewed and was one of the first cards of this size made available. You’ll be able to shoot over 80 hours of full HD video on this card or transfer an equal amount of media onto the card from your computer.
400GB for less
SanDisk Ultra 400GB UHS-I
With read speeds up to 100MB/s and write speeds up to 90MB/s, this 400GB card from SanDisk will let you record HD video to your heart’s content. This is a ton of space and SanDisk has sort of undercut the competition with the pricing for this card.
SanDisk Extreme 128GB
SanDisk Extreme cards are a popular choice for recording 4K video in professional filming shoots so it will absolutely deliver for your Moto G7. The 128GB option is a pretty great deal that comes with a USB card reader for transferring files.
Samsung EVO Select 128GB
The Samsung EVO Select is also available in 256GB and 512GB options, but we’ll recommend the 128GB card here because it’s a great price for an ample amount of storage for most people. It also comes with an SD card adapter.
There’s no better time to buy a microSD
The prices for microSD just keep on coming down, which is great news for anyone who owns a Moto G7! If you were looking to max out the storage on your phone you can get a 512GB card for just over $100. Don’t need that much storage? There are even better deals for smaller cards.
Our top pick is the 512GB Samsung EVO Plus which is available at the best price for that amount of storage. The best value pick is the SanDisk Ultra 400GB — plenty of storage for a crazy good price. And if you bought a budget phone because you love to save money, the 128GB Samsung EVO Select still offers a substantial upgrade for your G7 at a wallet-friendly price.
