Buy Motorola Moto C At Rs. 5499 at Amazon for 16 GB 1 GB RAM. The Motorola Moto C sports an VoLTE Model, Android 7.0 (Nougat), Display 5.0 inches 480x854 pixels, Mediatek MT6737M Quad-core 1.1 GHz Cortex-A53, Dual SIM (Micro-SIM, dual stand-by).
The Moto C is a good budget smartphone from the house of Lenovo-owned Motorola, which aims at replacing the 'Moto E series'. The phone is specially targeted at offline customers and thus the pricing is certainly on the higher side in respect to its hardware. The biggest disappointment is the display as we do not get a HD panel. Otherwise, we have a good build quality, smooth UI, good overall performance and above average cameras. However, the battery life is not the greatest. The biggest USP of this smartphone is that you get stock Android experience, security patches and it is likely to get updated to Android 8.0 Oreo OS as well. Of course, we get the Motorola trust and service. Hence, we would suggest you to go for the Moto C, if you do not mind a FWVGA display. Although, if you want to have a look at other options in this price segment, then check out the XOLO Era 2X, Swipe Elite 3 and Panasonic P85.
In June 2016, Lenovo-owned Motorola had unveiled the Moto C smartphone. It is an affordable budget smartphone for consumers who would like a premium experience. The Moto C gives the latest stock Android experience and probably will get updated to the next Android version (8.0 Oreo). Thus, this phone is targeted at offline consumers looking to buy a premium device with great support from the low-end budget segment, since it does not boast of incredible specifications. So let us check out the Moto C review in order to find out whether it is worth the price or not. However, take a look at the specifications of the phone before checking out the review. The Moto C is powered by a MediaTek MT6737M quad-core processor, coupled with 1GB RAM and 16GB internal memory (expandable up to 32GB). The phone sports a 5-inch FWVGA display and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat OS out of the box. In the camera department, we get a 5 megapixel primary rear camera and a 2 megapixel selfie shooter. There is Dual SIM connectivity along with 4G VoLTE support. Others include 3G HSPA+, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2 LE and GPS. In the sensor department, we only get an accelerometer. Under the hood, there is a 2350mAh removable battery.
The Moto C is completely made up of plastic like most low-end budget smartphone. However, the build quality is very good and the quality is quite premium. This phone is not the lightest for sure but the weight is balanced all around the body and hence you will not feel the weight. The credit goes to Motorola for maintaining a good build quality of an affordable low-end budget smartphone. Since the Moto C is compact, you can easily use it with one hand without facing any challenges. The phone has slight round edges, which is suitable for long duration of usage. The back cover has a slight textured finish for added grip.
On the front, we get a 5-inch display along with the selfie camera, LED flash, earpiece and couple of sensors. There are three capacitive buttons below the display for navigation. The volume rocker and power/lock buttons are placed on the right side of the phone, while the left side remains empty. The microUSB port and the 3.5mm audio jack sits at the top. There is nothing at the bottom except the primary microphone. Turning towards the back side, we get the primary camera along with the LED flash inside a circular enclosure. The Moto branding is found below the camera. The speaker holes are found at the bottom of the back side. Upon opening the removable plastic back cover, we get a 2350mAh removable battery along with SIM card slots and a dedicated microSD card slot. Overall, the Moto C is a solid low-end budget smartphone with good ergonomic design.
The Moto C features a 5-inch TFT display, which comes with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels (FWVGA). The quality of the display is top-notch but the resolution is on the lower side. Motorola does not have any excuse of putting in a FWVGA display in this price segment as the minimum requirement is of a HD panel. If we put aside the resolution factor, the display is not too bad as well. It does not feel pixellated. The color reproduction is accurate and the brightness level and contrast ratio are also quite good. The viewing angles are good while sunlight legibility is decent. However, there is no ambient light sensor onboard and hence you have to manually adjust the brightness when you step outdoors. An extra layer of protection is absent on top of the display but that does not make the screen panel a fingerprint magnet. This display is quite basic and is preferable for normal usage like viewing basic information but once in a while you can even play games or watch videos on it.
The touch response of the Moto C is great. It is very fluid and smooth, mainly due to the overall display quality and lag-free UI. Overall, the Moto C has an above average display and we would have certainly liked a HD panel.
The Moto C is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737M processor clocked at 1.1GHz and 1GB RAM. It is a standard chipset in this price range and you can easily perform the basic day-to-day tasks without any hiccups. The 1GB RAM onboard is enough for a decent multitasking experience and it can also handle most of the normal apps and games. In general, the UI is also lag free for most of the times since it is a Motorola device and we mostly get a stock Android experience. If you're thinking of playing games on this phone, you can play a most of the normal 3D games but the high graphics intensive games like Asphalt 8 will certainly lag here. The Moto C has 16GB of internal storage, out of which you will get around 9GB of free space. Although, if you want more storage, you can get that by inserting a microSD card (up to 32GB).
Talking about connectivity, there is 4G VoLTE support. It is a Dual SIM phone (micro) but only the first SIM slot supports 4G LTE while the second slot supports 3G. The battery capacity of the Moto C is 2350mAh, which is not the best you can get in this price segment. You'll get a battery life of about one day with normal usage and power saving mode but if you push it harder, it will not last a day. Also, there is no fast charging support and hence it takes some time to recharge the battery from 0-100%.
Overall, the performance of the Moto C is quite satisfactory.
The Moto C rocks a 5 megapixel primary rear camera. In terms of image quality, the color saturation is good and we got some details in our clicks shot in bright outdoor environments. However, in low lighting conditions, the images were filled with a bit of noise. So we would suggest you to use the LED flash in low light conditions or just shoot with ambient lighting. The sensors take some time in focusing on subjects but once they lock in, the images come out quite well. Macro shots were quite good while HDR shots were probably the best of the lot. Now coming to the selfie camera, we get a 2 megapixel shooter and you can click pretty good selfies with it occasionally and post it on your social media profiles.
The camera app of the Moto C has a very simple and easy to use UI. It is so simple to use that even first time smartphone users will be very comfortable with it. There are a lot of shooting modes in the stock camera app and it works very well. Thus, you do not need any other camera app for optimal performance. The primary shooter can record HD videos but the quality is above average. Overall, the camera department of the Moto C does a pretty good job considering its competition.
The speaker of the Moto C is placed near the bottom on the back side. The loudspeaker is audible and the sound quality is also quite good. The audio does not distort at high volume like many other low-end smartphone speakers do. Since the speaker is located at the back, the sound obviously gets muffled when the phone is kept on a flat surface. The stock music player is the Google Play Music app and thus most of the features are available but if you have any favorite music app, you can download and use that for sure.
The Moto C can play HD videos smoothly but it struggles a bit with Full HD videos. You can play them but it will stutter a bit. For the best video watching experience, just download a third-party app like MX Player or you can even use the default player. However, do use a good pair of earphones for the best possible audio experience. Overall, the Moto C's loudspeaker is above average in quality.
Out of the box, the Moto C smartphone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat OS. It is certainly one of the best low-end budget smartphones in terms of software. You'll get a stock Android experience and we can also expect the company to update the phone to Android 8.0 Oreo OS in the near future. The UI does not show any lag or frame drops in general day-to-day usage, however it might lag a bit during hardcore gaming or running high-end apps, since the processor is low-end. There are a couple of pre-installed apps (bloatware) but you can easily uninstall them if you plan to save up some space. The UI looks very clean and is also very modern but still you can choose to play around by installing third-party themes to change the look.
Overall, the UI of the Moto C feels very fluid and modern.
