Motorola Moto C Plus review
Motorola Moto C Plus review
My Motorola Moto C Plus review uncovers a very affordable Android smartphone that has a big, big battery (more on that later). The Moto C Plus is rolling out over Europe and should land in the UK at a price of around £100 as a handset only and with unconfirmed prices, as yet, for contract customers.
Design, colours, display and performance
The Moto C Plus has palm-friendly curves as the micro-textured back cover bends around the sides to finally meet the front glass. There are four colour options including Fine Gold, Pearl White, Starry Black or Metallic Cherry.
Keep up to Date
Fill in the form and be the first to know when the Moto C Plus is released.
The colours are all subtle mattes, so this is an affordable phone that will appeal to maturer audiences as well. The 5” HD display has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and the whole phone weighs in at 162g, with a 10mm thickness.

Cost savings are made by opting for a MediaTek processor over a Qualcomm processor. The processor on the Moto C Plus has a quad-core setup and a 1.3GHz clock speed.
Phone Set Up
If you have an old smartphone or iPhone then you can transfer over your content onto your new Moto C Plus. Performance and internal memory are closely linked here. One version of the phone has 16GB of internal memory and 1GB RAM, while the other version has 32GB of internal memory and 2GB RAM.

The higher memory option will of course cost a little more. So, if you do want to opt for the cheaper version, then you can still sleep at night knowing that the memory can be expanded upon through the microSD card slot.
It is great news to see the Moto C Plus being released with Google’s latest Android Nougat operating system. This gives you a collection of pre-loaded apps such as Google Maps, Chrome, Gmail, YouTube, Drive and others. New apps and games can be downloaded from the Play Store.
Camera & Video
There are no complaints about resolution when it comes to the 8MP main camera. Photography is aided by a LED flash and HDR. Burst, Panorama and Beautification modes are all included. You can also record video at 720p (HD) quality at 30 frames per second.
The 2MP selfie camera is rather basic with fixed focus but you do get a Selfie Light, Burst Mode, HDR and Beautification.
Big, big battery
The battery is big with a 4,000mAh capacity and this is the standout feature of the phone. Under a mixed usage scenario, typical users should get around 30 hours of use from this.

The Moto C Plus has Quick Charge support and you can buy the Quick Charger as an accessory, if so desire.
