Budget-friendly Moto C and Moto C Plus officially introduced, prices start at €89

Motorola has just taken the wraps off their new entry-level Android smartphones, the Moto C and Moto C Plus. Both devices were rumored for a couple of weeks now, so if you've been following our reports than you already know quite a bit about them.

Still, since they have just been made official, let's take a look at what's under their hood. First off, both smartphones ship with Android 7.0 Nougat on board.

The Moto C packs a 1.1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737M processor, whereas the Moto C Plus has a slightly more powerful 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737 CPU inside. The former includes 8GB of expandable storage and 1GB RAM, while the latter comes with 16GB of internal memory and 1GB RAM.

Furthermore, the Moto C Plus sports a decent 5-inch HD (720p) screen, while Moto C's display is of the same size but offers a lower FWVGA (480 x 854 pixels) resolution.

Even the camera is different depending on the model. The Moto C features a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a secondary 2-megapixel selfie snapper, whereas the Moto C Plus has a slightly better 8-megapixel shooter, along with a similar 2-megapixel selfie camera.

Another advantage that you'll get by purchasing the Moto C Plus over the Moto C is battery life. Motorola announced the Moto C Plus would be powered by a massive 4,000 mAh battery, and the Moto C will pack a much smaller 2,350 mAh battery inside.

As far as price goes, these are probably the cheapest Android smartphones launched by Motorola in a long time. The 3G version of Moto C will sell for just €89, while the 4G variant will be available for purchase for €99. The most expensive model, the Moto C Plus is priced to sell for €119.

Unfortunately, neither is set for a US release, but both smartphones will be launched in various markets across Latin America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.

Those are the list prices. So most likely those prices will drop. You can get a much better Moto G5 for around $200.

The 480 x 854 resolution display doesn't cut it for me these days. Even 720p doesn't cut it. The latest Moto G5 resolution of 1080 x 1920 is a minimum for me. Besides you can get one for around $200.

To all those complaining... did you see the price of this? Of course its higher than some chinese competitors, but this has an actual brand with actual costumer support... also the design looks really nice and the specs are ok for what they're asking.
