Motorola Moto C review
Cheap and cheerful
There is also a Moto C Plus family member that will go on sale for around £100. The extra money gives you a better screen resolution, camera resolution and significantly higher battery capacity, although it is heavier than the Moto C. So, it really is time to weigh up which cheap Moto phone is for you.
Display, design and performance
The Motorola Moto C has a 5” display with FWVGA resolution (480 x 854 pixels). This means that the phone is really aimed at those who aren’t wanting to play HD movies or immerse themselves in graphically orientated gaming. The Moto C Plus has HD resolution, so jump on over there if screen resolution is critically important to you.
Keep up to Date
Fill in the form and be the first to know when the Motorola Moto C is released.
The design is curvaceous and the micro-textured back cover, along with the large camera array and Moto ‘M’ logo, adds a pinch of design flair. The colours of Fine Gold, Metallic Cherry, Pearl White or Starry Black have more matte characteristics, so the Moto C family can be owned by older users too.
|Moto C Plus review|
The Moto C is 9mm thick and weighs in at 154g, which isn’t heavy at all. This Motorola phone is powered by a MediaTek quad-core 1.1GHz processor with 1GB RAM, once again confirming that it is not a gamers phone.
Phone Set Up
The Moto C has a 16GB memory and this can be used to transfer over a good number of photos, videos, contacts and so on, from an smartphone or iPhone. Should the need arise, then the microSD card slot can be used to boost the memory. The Moto C is configured to work with microSD cards that have a value of up to 32GB.
For security, you can set up a PIN, password or pattern.
The Moto C has Google’s latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS and this allows you to run multiple apps at the same time.
New: Moto E4 review
Google apps come pre-loaded so apps such as the Chrome browser, Maps, Gmail and YouTube are all only a tap away.
Camera & Video
The Moto C has a 5MP camera with a LED flash for the evenings and into the night. The 74-degrees lens captures most of the action and you can get better results by exploring the camera features, which includes Burst Mode, Panorama, HDR and Beautification.

If you wish to record video then this can be done at 720p (HD) quality at a rate of 30 frames per second. There is a 2MP portrait camera with a Selfie light and this lens has a 63-degrees field of vision.
