tracofne moto g7 Power
Tracfone Moto G7 Optimo MAXX
Tracfone just released another great smartphone option in the form of the Moto G7 Optimo MAXX in late April 2020 and this phone brings a large screen, and long battery life.

Featuring a 6.2" touchscreen, the G7 Optimo MAXX also comes with an Octa-core processor, 32 GB internal storage, 12 MP camera and Android 9 Pie.

The G7 Optimo MAXX is more commonly known as the Moto G7 Power, due to the huge, 5,000 mAh battery that gives all day, and even multi-day capability on a single charge.

Tracfone also recently released the Moto G7 Optimo, known more commonly as the G7 Play, which has a smaller screen and smaller battery, but other wise many of the same features. For all the new devices from Tracfone, see our Latest List of Tracfone Smartphones.

The G7 Optimo MAXX (or Power, as the unlocked version is called) was actually released by Motorola back in March 2019, along with the Moto G7 and Moto G7 Play. We have already shared a full review of the Unlocked Moto G7 for use with Tracfone BYOP for those interested.

Let's Start getting into the details of the G7 Optimo MAXX with our top Pro's and Con's list.

Moto G7 Optimo MAXX Quick Facts

What we Like
-32 GB internal storage
-3 GB RAM
-Large screen
-Great battery life

What we Don't Like
-Somewhat low-res display and pixel density

As you can see, there is a lot to like about the Moto G7 Optimo MAXX. It comes with a number of features many users like, including the large screen and long battery life.

It does trade off some sharpness on the display, due mostly the the size, that might be noticeable for some.

Not many of Tracfone's smartphone options come with 32 GB storage and 3 GB RAM which are both critical for most avid smartphone users but the MAXX delivers. Let's see what else this phone has with the full list of features and specs.

Moto G7 Optimo MAXX (XT1955DL) Specs
Size: 6.33" x 2.99" x 0.37" in (6.98 oz)
Camera: 12 MP Rear Camera, 8 MP Front Camera
Screen: 6.2" HD+ touchscreen with 720x1570 resolution (279 ppi)
Processor: 1.8 Ghz Octa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 632)
Memory: 3 GB
Storage: 32 GB and supports up to 512 GB via MicroSD card
Battery: 5,000 mAh with 45 hrs usage time (non-removable)

Motorola was first founded as an American telecommunications company back in 1928. But in 2011, after several years of significant losses and challenges, the company was split and the mobile phone segment of the company was sold to Google. Two years later, the Motorola mobile phone segment was sold again, this time to Lenovo.

It was during their ownership by Google that the popular Moto G line was first released, as an unlocked, budget smartphone that still packed features to keep up with all the daily needs of users. Since transitioning to Lenovo, that has continued with now the latest version, the Moto G8, just released.

Many Tracfone BYOP users are very familiar with the Motorola brand as it has released a number of low cost unlocked phones capable of being used with Tracfone going back to the original Moto G.

Based on the specs sheet, the Moto G7 Optimo MAXX will continue this trend but let's take a closer look in our full review.

Tracfone Moto G7 Optimo Review

Touchscreen
One of the two big selling points on the Moto G7 Optimo MAXX is the 6.2" HD+ IPS LCD touchscreen that has a resolution of 720x1570 and a pixel density of about 279ppi. The screen ratio is stretched up to 19.5:9, meaning it packs in the large screen by making the phone taller, rather than wider which is good for ergonomics.

With such a large screen we would have hoped it would have a little higher resolution to help with the sharpness. The Moto G7, for example, has the same size screen but a full HD resolution of 1080 x 2270 pixels which leads to a pixel density of over 400. This simply means the screen on the G7 is a little sharper and clearer.

That being said, the Moto G7 Optimo MAXX does have a nice bright screen that looks good and it features Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for extra protection. We also suggest a case or cover for extra precautions.

Shop Moto G7 Optimo MAXX (Power) covers and cases on Amazon

Internal Specs - Storage, Processor and RAM
Performance on the G7 Optimo MAXX is actually very good thanks mostly to the powerful 1.8 Ghz Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 632. The Optimo MAXX actually has the same processor as the Moto G7 Optimo (Play), but the Optimo MAXX (power) has more RAM at 3 GB which will help with multitasking ability (keeping lots of apps open at once). It is nice to see another smartphone option from Tracfone with adequate specs to keep up with most user's needs.

For storage the MAXX has 32 GB with about 21 GB available out of the box. This is the same as the newly released Samsung Galaxy A10e and the Moto G6. There is an external MicroSD card slot for up to 512 GB extra storage.

Camera
We don't see anything too fancy or surprising when it comes to the camera on the Optimo MAXX. It has a single 12 MP shooter with f2.0 aperture and PDAF (Phase-Detect Auto-Focus). Panorama, LED flash and HDR all come with the phone and the front camera is a 8 MP selfie lens also with LED flash.

There is full HD video recording capabilities from both the front and rear cameras.

The cameras are more than capable for capturing moments to share with friends and family but you don't get portrait mode and the quality in poor lighting conditions won't be as good as more expensive devices.

Want to take better photos? We created a guide with 8 tips for better cell phone pictures to help.

Battery
The battery is another big selling point for the MAXX as it comes with a 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery that is non-removable. That's a lot larger than most batteries, even double the size of some, which means this phone will easily last all day, and for many, it will last two days.

Official specs indicate standby time of 28 days, with talk time of 45 hrs. And if the long battery life wasn't enough, the phone also has Motorola's TurboCharging technology via the USB Type-C charger which can add several hours of battery life with just a 15 minute charge.

Android OS
Motorola typically leaves the Operating System (OS) on their phones mostly stock, which means you get less bloatware and more storage space.

The phone features Android 9 Pie, which comes with a number of new features and improvements over previous versions including gesture navigation, app usage statistics and time limits, and adaptive battery for improved performance.

Tracfone has occasionally updated the software version on their smartphones, but in many cases their phones are stuck with what they come with, so it is best to get a phone with the latest OS, which at this time is Android 9.

Design
On the front of the phone we see a smaller bezel compared to the last version, the G6, but we do have a large notch where the front facing camera is located. On the back is where the fingerprint reader sits below the rear camera, and the headphone jack is at the top while the charging connection is at the bottom of the phone.

The G7 Optimo MAXX has a polycarbonate back which should be pretty durable and scratch resistant. Overall the phone looks sleek and updated but is noticeably thicker than many phones due to the larger battery. For most, it still fits comfortably in the hand. Just be aware that fitting this device in a small pocket might not work as well.

Conclusion
The Moto G7 Optimo MAXX from Tracfone, or more commonly known as the G7 Power, is a great option because of the solid performance specs, incredible batter life, and large screen. It is also very reasonably priced for the features and performance it comes with. Anyone who spends more than a few hours a day on their device or is constantly running low on battery, will appreciate the extremely long life of this phone.

Users who don't want or need such a large phone or the performance features, could consider the smaller Moto G7 Optimo or other such devices.

Moto G7 Optimo (Play) VS Moto G7 Optimo MAXX (Power)

Tracfone released both these phones for use on their network and they share some of the same features while also having a few key differences. Let's quickly break that down for you.

The G7 Optimo MAXX has a larger screen (6.2" vs 5.7"), 1 GB more RAM, larger battery (5,000 mAh vs 3,000) and slightly better camera. The Optimo and Optimo MAXX have the same processor, storage and Android OS. They are also both available for about the same price from Tracfone.

For users who don't mind the larger form factor and screen, the Optimo MAXX is the clear choice. But some users may prefer the smaller G7 Optimo, and it still makes for a great option.

Where to Buy the Moto G7 Optimo MAXX

The G7 Optimo MAXX is currently available from some online retailers, and will we update as we find more availability.

What is 5G and Will Tracfone get 5G?

What 5G Means and When Is It Coming to Tracfone

Welcome to TracfoneReviewer - with news, reviews and Tracfone promo codes!

what is 5G Tracfone
What is 5G and When Will Tracfone Get 5G?
5G is starting to show up everywhere. From major cell phone network service providers advertising it, to smartphone manufacturers releasing phones with it, to a variety of rumors and conspiracy theories about it. But few people actually understand what 5G means.

We are sharing the facts about 5G, and also some history of mobile phone technology, as well as whether you need to upgrade your phone soon or not.

Let's get started.

What is 5G?


The simple answer is:

5G = 5th Generation

5G is the next generation of wireless technology becoming available. It brings faster speeds, and a number of technological improvements over previous generations. In the same way that 4G slowly replaced 3G and brought a number of advancements, now we see that potential with 5G.

The easiest way to understand 5G and how it may improve our mobile network, is to look at a brief history of previous generations of mobile technology, starting with 1G.

The History of 1G, 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G Mobile Technology
Tracfone 5G
One of the First Cell Phones
It all started in Japan in 1979 when the first generation of mobile technology was launched by NTT in Tokyo. The US approved 1G operations in 1983 and the mobile phone was launched in America with the Motorola DynaTAC one of the first devices that saw widespread use despite the high price tag and limited ability.

2G emerged in 1991 in Finland and allowed for significantly clearer calls. But the 2nd generation technology brought so much more in the form of text and picture messaging which users, particularly the younger generation, adopted at an incredibly rapid pace. This truly started the mobile phone revolution, and it continued to grow rapidly worldwide.

Then came 3G in 2001. It was launched initially in Japan and offered standardized 'data packets' which made it possible for users to access data from anywhere in the world because of the standardization. In 2007 the iPhone was launched, and a year later, the iPhone 3G, which made use of many of the capabilities for 3G networks including video streaming, video conferencing, GPS and more.

tracfone 5G information
iPhone 3G
4th Generation was first deployed in Sweden in 2009 as the Long Term Evolution (LTE) Standard and then to the world as it brought faster speeds, and especially high-quality streaming capability. It wasn't until closer to 2013 that America started seeing the potential as apps like Uber utilized the capabilities of 4G LTE. Today 4G LTE is still somewhat limited worldwide, but in the US and other developed nations, speeds continue to increase as telecommunication companies keep upgrading.

Now we see 5G starting to emerge in 2020 and it offers three main benefits: faster speeds, lower latency and the ability to connect more devices at one time.

5G utilizes low, medium and high frequency radio bands with different benefits for each. Currently, there is little coverage anywhere in the US for 5G (despite all the main service providers claiming otherwise) and it will likely take several years before it becomes widely available.

5G is still in early development and even as it is added across America, 4G LTE will continue to be the primary technology for the next several years at least. Only in the last two or three years have we seen implementation of widespread access to 4G LTE in America, and it is likely to take 5G several years to be implemented, and even then, 4G LTE will still be used extensively.

Each generation of mobile technology has taken about 10 years to develop, so we can probably expect to see 6G sometime in 2030.

Is 5G Safe?


Yes, 5G is safe.

There has been some concern, and a lot of misinformation, about 5G recently. But it is clearly misplaced.

As we saw from the history of mobile technology above, 5G is simply the next generation. And while it innovates in some areas, it largely uses the same basic technology of radio waves that we have been using for years and years.

For more in-depth information, take a look at this article by PhoneScoop.

When Will Tracfone Get 5G and Do You Need a 5G Phone?


While we can only speculate on some of this information, it seems unlikely that Tracfone will get 5G connectivity for several years.

With 4G LTE, many service providers kept it somewhat exclusive at first, even making customers pay extra for it, and it took several years before Tracfone offered 4G LTE service.

We expect a somewhat similar situation with 5G. However, the good news is 4G LTE speeds will likely increase over the next few years.

At this time and for the next few years, a 5G compatible phone just isn't necessary.

We hope this information helps explain what 5G means, and leave a comment below with any thoughts or questions.

Moto E6 (XT2005DL) Tracfone Review

Tracfone Moto E6 (XT2005DL) Features, Specs and Review

Welcome to TracfoneReviewer where we share the latest news, review and Tracfone Promo Codes!

moto e6 specs tracfone
Tracfone Moto E6 Review
An updated, ultra-budget friendly smartphone from the popular Motorola brand has been released by Tracfone in early 2020 in the form of the Moto E6.

The Moto E6 comes with a large, 5.5" HD touchscreen, Android 9 Pie, 13 MP camera, and 1.4 Ghz octa-core processor. It really packs in a lot of features into a very low price point.

The Moto E6 settles in as the next phone in a long line of Moto E devices (that was first launched back in 2014) and we will cover all the specs and features including how it stacks up to the predecessor, the Moto E5 which is also available from Tracfone.

There have been several new smartphones recently released, with the Moto G7 Optimo also released around the same time as the E6, in early March 2020. For all the new devices from Tracfone, see our Latest List of Tracfone Smartphones.

The Moto E6 was first released by Motorola in 2019, and can be found on Amazon unlocked for use with GSM or CDMA service on Tracfone BYOP. However, the price quite a bit higher than the Tracfone version.

Let's start getting into the details of the Moto E6 with our top Pro's and Con's list.

Moto E6 Quick Facts

What we Like
-Large screen
-Excellent price
-Octa-core processor
-Android 9 Pie
-Great battery life

What we Don't Like
-Only 2 GB RAM
-Only 16 GB storage

Some of the top points to highlight are the powerful Octa-core processor and amazing battery life, often well beyond a single day. It is also priced very low, with several retailers listing it for below $50 with airtime bundles and more.

One of the drawbacks, however, is that the Moto E6 only comes with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage, which might limit the multitasking ability of the phone or how will it will handle resource intensive apps and games, and also how many apps and media that can be loaded on the phone at one time.

The big brother to the Moto E6, the Moto G7 Optimo, has 32 GB internal storage as well as some other upgrades, and the Samsung Galaxy A10e is another option with 32 GB storage for those who might want that extra space.

Moto E6 (XT2005DL) Specs

Camera: 13 MP Rear Camera, 5 MP Front Camera
Screen: 5.5" HD touchscreen with 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio
Processor: 1.4 Ghz Octa-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 435)

Storage: 16 GB and supports up to 512 GB via MicroSD card
Battery: Removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery

Motorola was originally an American telecommunications company founded way back in 1928. But in 2011, after several years of significant losses and challenges, the company was split and the mobile phone segment of the company was sold to Google. Then, just two years later, the Motorola mobile phone segment was again sold, this time to Lenovo in 2014.

The Moto E lineup was created as an even more budget friendly option compared to the Moto G line, and it has been consistently positioned at a price of around $100.

Many Tracfone BYOP users are very familiar with the Motorola brand as it has released a number of low cost unlocked phones capable of being used with Tracfone going back to the original Moto G.

Let's get into the details on the Moto E6 with our full review

Tracfone Moto E6 Review

Touchscreen
The E6 brings a 5.5" IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. It uses the popular 18:0 ratio, meaning the phone is taller than some, but is not too wide to still easily fit in the hand. Pixel density is about 296 ppi, which is good and gives a nice, crisp screen.

Overall the screen is a great size and resolution, delivering a solid picture with no complaints for a phone at this price. But we do miss out on any Gorilla Glass protection, so might be best to invest in a good screen protector or case.

View Moto E6 Covers and Cases on Amazon.

moto e6 fewtures specs review tracfone

Performance - Processor, Storage and RAM
The 1.4 Ghz octa-core processor from Qualcomm is a decent performer but the phone only comes with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal storage which will really limit the apps and media that can be kept on the device, and the ability to multitask and use more demanding apps or games.

There is a MicroSD slot for additional storage, up to 256 GB, so that may help with the storage problems for some.

For most smartphone users,, 16 GB internal storage just isn't enough, and we find this a major drawback for this phone. If you have previously had issues with running out of storage on your phone, consider a device with 32 or 64 GB storage to help resolve that problem.

Camera
One of the surprising features on the Moto E6 is the 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, HDR, panorama and more. It actually performs very well for the price thanks in part to a larger sensor compared to the previous model.

The front camera has a 5 MP sensor and also has many of the same features.

Want to take better photos? We created a guide with 8 tips for better cell phone pictures to help.

Battery
There are some consumers who will be very happy to see that the Moto E6 comes with a removable 3,000 mAh battery that has enough power to last a full day on a single charge with moderate usage. This is thanks to both software improvements and the efficient processor.

The battery charger is a standard Micro USB connection. It would be nice to see Motorola upgrade to the newer, USB-C which many phones now use.

Android OS
Motorola is well known for leaving the Operating System (OS) on their phones mostly stock, which means you get less bloatware.

The phone features Android 9 Pie, which comes with a number of new features and improvements over previous versions including gesture navigation, app usage statistics and time limits, and adaptive battery for improved performance.

Tracfone has occasionally updated the software version on their smartphones, but in many cases their phones are stuck with what they come with, so it is best to get a phone with the latest OS, which at this time is Android 9.

Get the most from Android with our List of the Best Android Apps for Tracfone users.

Design
The design of the Moto E6 is not particularly interesting with a plastic shell and rather large bezels on the front screen.  The phone also lacks a fingerprint sensor, which has become a very popular security measure, and only comes in two colors, black and dark blue.

Yet it fits well in the hand, and for the price, we can't expect too much from the design side.

Conclusion
The Moto E6 brings a nice size screen, good camera and processor, and all-day battery at a very reasonable price. While the storage and RAM are not the best, if you don't need it then this phone packs a lot for the price and is one of the best phones available from Tracfone for under $50 at this time.

Moto E6 vs Moto G7 Optimo
The Moto G7 Optimo, also released at about the same time, brings a number of improvements over the Moto E6 as one would expect for a phone that is more than double the price. The G7 has a larger screen, better processor, more internal storage, and fingerprint reader. However, both phones come with 2 GB RAM , Android 9, and 3,000 mAh battery, with the G7's battery non-removable.

We would suggest the Moto G7 Optimo for users who spend more time on their phone, or need the extra storage space.

Moto E6 vs Moto E5
Looking at the E6 versus the phone it replaces, we see they both share similar performance specs and the E5 actually has a fingerprint sensor. But the E6 has a number of small upgrades, like the improved camera, newer Android version, and removable battery.

We find the E6 a better choice simply for the updated OS, which brings a lot of improvements and security measure over older versions.
