Yesterday, Lenovo came up with another device which is set counter Xiaomi’s Redmi 4A. The new Moto C Plus will be exclusively available on Flipkart and will be sold at Rs 6999, which is just as the same price of the Redmi 4A.

The Moto C Plus also happens to be the best low-budget smartphones that have been made by the company. Now, if you are looking for a low-budget smartphone, you are left with the dilemma whether you should go with the Moto C Plus or the Redmi 4A.

So, these are the top 7  things which you should know about the Moto C Plus:-

#7. OS

One of the key reasons for  Motorola smartphones huge success has to be the fact that all of their smartphones comes with the latest OS. And the Moto C Plus is no exception, the device comes with Android 7.0 (Nougat), although, it may not be the latest version.

However, in this price segment, the Moto C Plus is the only smartphone that you’ll get that is running on the latest Android OS.

#6. Display

If OS is considered to be one of the pros of the device, then the display has to be considered as a Con.

The device features a 5.0-inch TFT display and comes with a resolution of 720x1280p. Now, if you look at other smartphones in this price segment, then you’ll easily find smartphones with IPS LCD display panels.

The TFT display doesn’t offer good viewing angles, the color reproduction doesn’t seem to be accurate, so if you like to watch movies or videos on your smartphone, then Moto C Plus will not be the ideal choice for you.

#5. Hardware

Once again the hardware is another con of this device. The Moto C Plus is getting powered by MediaTek MT 6737 quad-core processor, which is getting accompanied by 2 GB of RAM.

Now this configuration will be ideal for someone who doesn’t o much multitasking or heavy usage.

Nevertheless, if you are someone, who does use a lot of apps, then while jumping in and out, you’ll face some shutters.

The Moto C Plus features a Mali-T720 MP2 GPU, which makes it a moderate device when it comes to gaming.

Comparing to the Redmi 4A’s Adreno 505 GPU, the Mali-T720 MP2 falls apart. The Moto C Plus is not a good gaming device, so if you are thinking of getting smartphone under 7000, then the Redmi 4 or the cheaper Redmi 4A will be a better choice.

#4. Lack of sensors

No matter, what Motorola says but this has to be the biggest con of this device. Motorola much like Samsung has skipped some important sensor in its budget oriented device. As a result, with the Moto C Plus, you get only one sensor; Accerolemeter.

You don’t get important sensors like Gyroscope, Proximity, so if you are into gaming or someone who likes to watch videos VR headsets then the Moto C Plus is not the smartphone you should invest your money.

#3. Camera

Since acquiring Motorola, Lenovo has done some significant improvement with Motorola smartphones, and one of the area is the camera department.

The Moto G5 Plus is having a superb camera, however, in comparison, the camera of the Moto C Plus is not that good. However, if we put up it against smartphones like Redmi 4A, Redmi 4, then in several areas the Moto C Plus comes out on top.

Also, at the front, along with the 2 MP camera, you get a LED flash, so in low-light conditions, the front flash lets you take some decent selfies.

Another important which we might wanna know of this device is the fact that the rear camera only lets you shoot only HD videos, which means you won’t be able to record videos at 1080p, instead, you will be left with to record videos at 720p.

#2. Dedicated MicroSD slot

Right now, Motorola is one of the few brands that come with a dedicated microSD card slot. If you look at smartphones like Redmi 3S, Honor 6X, Lenovo K6 Power, etc. you will find a hybrid slot.

Anyways, the good thing is that with the Moto C Plus, you’ll be able to use two nano sims and a microSD card slot at the same time.

#1. Battery

The USP of the Moto C Plus has to be its mammoth battery. The device comes with a 4000 mAh battery, which unlike other devices is removable.

Motorola is supplying a turbocharger with Moto C Plus, which lets you charge the device within 60-90 minutes.

Once fully charged, the device can easily give you 1-2 days of usage.
