Motorola Moto C Plus Hands-on, First Impressions

Motorola released a slew of new smartphones to the market this year. And while the Moto Z2 Play leads the pack, we should acknowledge its siblings as well.

Enter the Motorola Moto C Plus — one of the company’s entry level smartphone.

The Moto C Plus is Motorola’s second cheapest offering after the Moto C. It sports a 5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720, which equates to 294ppi.

On its front panel, you will see the 2MP fixed focus front camera accompanied by a LED flash, a voice receiver, and the Moto logo underneath it. On the bottom, you will find the capacitive buttons.

Along the right side of the device, you will find its volume and power/lock buttons. The left side is completely devoid of any buttons, ports, or slots.

Up top, you will find the 3.5mm headphone jack, and, contrary to the standard positioning of ports, the micro-USB port.


Down below, the phone is completely blank aside from the microphone, and the grip for removing the back cover.

Flip the phone over, you will be greeted by the 8MP rear shooter and LED flash on a circular pedestal. At the center is the Motorola logo and further below is the speaker.

The 8MP and 2MP shooters of the phone take average quality photos in brightly lit conditions. See sample shots below.

On the hands, the Moto C plus feels like your standard phone with a plastic build, but it does feel sturdy enough and is easy to hold.

The Moto C plus is powered by a MediaTek Quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz paired with a Mali T720mp2, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory, and Android 7.0 Nougat. Handling its juice is a monstrous 4000mAh Li-polymer removable battery. With that, the phone feels responsive while during basic navigation and opening apps.
