T-Mobile’s new Revvlry phones offer decent specs at an affordable price

T-Mobile is updating its Revvl lineup of smartphones and announced the third generation of the Revvlry and Revvlry+. The new phones are aimed at offering decent specs at an affordable price, plus they boast a relatively modern design, especially for a phone in this price range.

The new phones will be available starting on July 19 and see to have a lot to offer. In fact, the phones are really just T-Mobile-branded versions of the Motorola Moto G7 Plus and Moto G7 Play, which are very respectable phones in their own right. Here’s everything you need to know about the new T-Mobile Revvlry and Revvlry+ smartphones.

The standard T-Mobile Revvlry, which is a branded version of the Motorola Moto G7 Play, is the smaller of the two phones and offers a 5.7-inch display with a 720p resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. The device is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 processor, which is coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. You’ll get a 3,000mAh battery too, which isn’t bad, and should easily get the device through a day of use. The device has both a fingerprint sensor with face unlock, though it’s unclear how precise the facial recognition is on the device.

The design of the phone is relatively modern, though still clear budget. The device has a relatively big notch and chin, which not everyone may like. The rear-facing camera sits in at 13 megapixels, while the main front-facing camera is 8 megapixels.

T-Mobile Revvlry+

The T-Mobile Revvlry+, which is the Moto G7 Plus, is slightly larger, offering a 6.24-inch display with a 1,080p resolution. Under the hood, the phone is powered by a slightly more powerful Snapdragon 636 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. Like the standard-sized phone, the device has a 3,000mAh battery. Like the smaller device, the Revvlry+ has a fingerprint sensor and a face unlock feature. The phone ships with Android 9.0 Pie.

The rear-facing camera on the device is a dual sensor, with one 16-megapixel sensor and one 5-megapixel sensor. On the front, you’ll get a 12-megapixel sensor, which should make for decent selfie shots.

Price and availability

The Revvlry is available starting on July 19 for $200 or $8.34 per month for 24 months with $0 down, while the Revvlry+ comes in at $350, or $14 per month with $14 down. T-Mobile is also offering the Revvly for free to those that add a new line or the Revvlry+ for $0 down and no interest.

The company is also showing off the new phones at its signature stores on July 19, and at those events, you’ll get 15 seconds to grab as much magenta paper as you can — which can be redeemed for prizes. The events are found at the company’s flagship Chicago, Las Vegas, Miami, New York City, San Francisco, and Santa Monica, California, stores. Full details on locations and times can be found at the T-Mobile website.

The 5G speed race is over and T-Mobile has won

Every few months, a new market analysis comes out comparing the top 5G performance and availability among U.S. carriers. Each time, we wonder if the latest report will finally topple T-Mobile, which has held a commanding lead over rivals AT&T and Verizon for years. Yet, with each new report, T-Mobile pulls farther ahead while AT&T and Verizon are left in the dust.

With that in mind, Opensignal's latest 5G Experience Report doesn't bring too many surprises, at least in broad strokes. T-Mobile continues to deliver 5G download speeds that are more than twice those of any other carrier and more than twice the 5G availability. This means you won't just get faster performance on T-Mobile's 5G network, but you're more likely to be able to find a 5G connection.

The budget smartphone market is a bustling space right now, with great phones from Nokia and Samsung making big waves.

That might be why it's decided to remix some classics this year, releasing new versions of the Moto G 5G and Moto G Stylus.

While there are definitely some improvements in the 2023 versions of both phones, Motorola has also made some cutbacks for both, making these new versions remixes of past classics rather than pure upgrades.

T-Mobile has just unveiled a new set of plans and perks to help both new and current customers break free of lengthy device contracts while guaranteeing you'll be able to get the best deals available on phone upgrades every two years.

Significantly, with the new plans, the "Un-carrier" promises equal treatment for all customers, whether they're coming over from another carrier or have been using T-Mobile's services for years. That's in contrast to the limited-time offers of its rivals, which often ignore their most loyal subscribers in an effort to entice others to switch carriers.
