It was this price for a while around November - December, but has been back up to $200 ever since.

Yes it was at that price before (exact same price), a few times actually. I got that phone a few months ago at 150 in store price.
It's decent, really nothing fancy. Camera is OK, but not great.
At least it fits my needs!

Yeah, it was that price at Christmas. There was also a $20 off coupon at that time. But that was then and this is now.

This is a very good phone for this price range. What else can you get with similar specs, in Canada with a Canadian warranty (let alone a Costco warranty)?

Incidentally Moto US has this model on sale for US$130. That's about CA$180 so Costco's price is at least warm if not hot.

That said, I share @MandomRix 's concern about lack of NFC. IMO that feature is a must-have these days.

Just got the phone today , it's very light . Easy to hold . Not bad decent with 2 GB RAM but Qualcomm .

Camera is just okay. Has usb c quick charge . I guess it's more secure than a Huawei or xiamoi lol

I recommend for a tight budget

Not a huge fan of 2gb Androids. Would be tempted just get an older flagship off eBay if you aren't finicky about a warranty.

LG G7 was last generation flagship. Moto G7/G7 Play is lower midrange. The LG G7 is in a whole different league!

No, the G7 Play it is still on Android 9, but yesterday the wife got pushed the April 2020 Security update OTA. The Moto One Action [which I have] is on Android 10 (March 1, 2020 security update).
Overall G7 Play is a nice basic phone. For the price, new, and with decent warranty, it is hard to find anything comparable. Wife has no complaints.

There were one or 2 programs which I needed to remove from the "battery optimizer options". Surprisingly gmail was one of them, otherwise the notifications would take too long to get. And if I remember correctly, I think viber was the other. But it was simple enough, and no issues since then.

I had picked it up for the wife back in November when it was once again $50 off. Minus an additional $20 for online orders. So it was ($210 [online price] - $50 - $20) + taxes, and it came to $161.xx all in shipped in QC. Because of the $20 online only discount, it was still $10 cheaper to order online than to pick up in store. And it comes with costco's 90 day return policy, 1 yr manufacturers warranty, and I paid with my Canadian Tire World Elite MC, and doubled manufacturer warranty for a total of 2yrs.. And collected an extra buck in CT money. lol.

Not a flagship phone my any stretch of the imagination, but it works quite well as a basic phone for non power users. The 2GB has surprisingly not caused any slowdowns. Android 9 is pretty good at keeping it zippy. Wife upgraded from an old Acer Zest Plus (again purchased from costco back in 2017), and this is better.

She doesn't care for NFC anyhow, so no big deal there.
