So finally Motorola came up with the extended version of its super-cheap Moto C called Moto C plus. Just a few days ago when Moto C was announced, the excitement, it was expected that either the phone which is cheaper than the Moto E series will either be launched at an unimaginable price or the phone would have unimaginable specs at a decent price. But when the phone finally launched in India, it bombed the moment the overexcited smartphone users of India came to know about its price and its inferior specs.
But at the end of the day, what we as smartphone enthusiasts have to consider is the fact that Motorola is the pioneer of Mobile phone revolution in India and identifies itself amongst the elite smartphone brands of the world that includes the likes of Samsung and Apple and thus it would never really try to imitate its Chinese counterparts in terms of its pricing strategy.
Now coming back to Moto C Plus, the phone is a Flipkart exclusive and is available at a price of Rs. 6999. Motorola organized a grand launch ceremony for the phone which I personally feel is too much for a smartphone that has just average specs and comes with a decent price. Although, it might seem that Motorola felt that if Nokia 3310 can create excitement amongst the Indian crowd then why not it's Moto C Plus. But Nokia 3310 has a special bond with the Indian consumers compared to Moto C.
As far as the specs of Moto C Plus is concerned, it has a 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) display and has a simple plastic built. The processor in Moto C is the MediaTek MT6737 quad-core 64-bit SoC coupled with Mali-T720 GPU along with 2GB of RAM. It has an 8-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2, autofocus, 1.12-micron pixels and a LED flash and a 2MP front snapper with f/2.8 aperture and surprisingly a front-facing LED flash.
The biggest highlight of Moto C Plus is its removable 4,000 mAh battery which will power the phone for more than a day on a single charge even with heavy data usage.
Apart from the above features, Moto C Plus has an internal memory of !6 GB that can be further expanded via an SD card and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
Avoid this one and go for Redmi 4 with much better specs and same price of Rs. 6999. As a latest update the price has gone down to around 5,600, so it may be a good choice at this new low price.
