Lenovo owned Motorola has launched a new C series of Moto phones. Moto C plus is an affordable phone and we can even call it a better version of Moto C. There are 2 new budget phones in this category, starting from 6000 rupees, the Moto C and Moto C plus roughly priced at 7000 rupees.
Motorola launched this Moto C Plus on 20th June 2017. It appears to be a promising budget smartphone, but is it a true value for money smartphone? Let us find out.
The Moto C Plus is priced at roughly 7,000 rupees which is slightly lower than Redmi 4A but both the phones come with same display attributes and battery size.
It offers a 5-inch display with 1280 X 720 pixels screen resolution and a pixel density 294 PPI. The viewing in different light conditions are decent but, not very impressive. The same can be said about the color reproduction and attention to details.
The frame and body are made up of plastic. There are rounded edges somewhat similar to Moto G5. The display is protected by strengthened glass and is decently scratch resistant.
The plastic back has a textured pattern which gives a nice grip. The power button on the right is jagged just like the HTC U Play and the volume rocker is just above it. The headphone jack along with micro USB port is on the top on either side of the edges which is bit odd while the microphone is at the bottom along with a small notch to pull out the back cover.
The microphone is over the bottom along with a small notch to pull out the back cover. At the back, the Moto C Plus features an 8MP camera with f 2.2 aperture, autofocus and LED flash while the front camera features a 2MP selfie shooter with f 2.8 aperture and LED flash. Video recording can be done at 720p @30 fps. The camera doesn’t support HDR mode and playback of ultra HD videos are also not supported. In our experience, the images were quite noisy in low light.
Considering the price tag don’t expect too much from this phone. The phone lacks basic sensors like ambient light sensors, gyroscope sensor, and proximity sensor. It only ships with an accelerometer sensor.
The phone supports OTG but does not have a fingerprint reader. So you have to rely on pattern-lock and PIN for security.
The bigger battery is the key aspect of any smartphone and this phone packs a massive 4000mAh battery which can surely last a day or two.
The only other thing good about this phone apart from its bigger battery is the fact that it comes with Android nougat 7.0 out of the box. The phone runs on MediaTek quad-core processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, expandable up to 32GB. If security is a key issue for you, good news because it comes with latest security patches.
So coming to the conclusion, the Moto C Plus is a competent entry-level smartphone which offers big battery, significant display, and latest operating system. Though the front camera is just 2MP and fingerprint sensor is missing from the phone, but the smartphone will not create any issues in performance. You can easily manage the multitasking and can take decent images from the rear camera and your day-to-day requirements will be easily catered by the Moto C Plus. This phone is for the users who want to upgrade to their smartphone.
Though you cannot expect anything extraordinary from the smartphone, still it is a good alternative to phones like Redmi 4A.
It costs you more than the Moto C, but it’s still one of the cheapest Android phones you can buy with 8MP Camera, running on Android Nougat.
