At the same time, the cost of Moto C Plus is affordable, about 8,000 rubles in Moscow stores. The price tag is small, so the competition on the phone will be huge, which in turn obliges the novelty to be interesting and attractive.
A nice blue package with two ice cream. The design is simple, but also not flashy: C Plus is a classic workhorse, not a flagship model.
Same Bright colors have received all smartphones from the C Plus series: golden, cherry metallic and, of course, black. The latter option is perfect for fans of classics.
The package is very simple: cable, charging (for 2 amps – you can charge the tablets) and headphones. The latter turned out to be quite good – even in spite of the fact that they are not fashionable "gags", the sound quality was pleasant for them in the price category of the smartphone. And the microphone will never become redundant. In a word, the C Plus box contains everything you need, but without excess or unnecessary restrictions. Despite the fact that C Plus belongs to budget solutions, there will not be a single cable in the box with it.
The phone turned out to be a very interesting color – gold. Welcome to the world of luxury and glamor 🙂 In fact, the color though gold, but does not look trite. A model of this color, it may well suit both the girl and the young man. Well, for those who want something more calm, a black model is available.
There are no hardware buttons on the front side: only touch buttons. This is a usual set of three standard keys smartphone with Android on board. Often, for devices of this level, control is implemented using virtual, on-screen buttons. Of course, the larger part of the front side is occupied by a large display with a diagonal of 5 inches.
The resolution is 1280 x 720 pixels. Given the segment in which C Plus is tagged, this is more than enough. If you depart from the technical specifications and make a simple user opinion, then we can safely say that there will be no discomfort when using the screen. The picture will be juicy, without an unpleasant "grain". The display is bright enough, does not particularly glare, stably responds to touch and does not blind in the sun. If you want, you can watch a short video from YouTube and even the whole movie.
A camera, a flash, and, of course, a conversational speaker settled over the display. The front camera is interesting: 2M resolution, LED flash and HDR. There is not enough, perhaps, only autofocus, but this is another price category.
The reverse side of the device is also a golden one. The cover is plastic, easily removable. At the bottom of the speaker is located. By the way, very loud.
Now about the main camera. Here, of course, everything is more interesting than the front. The resolution grew more than 8Mp, autofocus and LED flash appeared. If the owner wants, the camera can take panoramic pictures, and it's very good to glue them together. As for the video, it is here rather for a tick. The maximum recording resolution will be 1280 x 720 at 30 frames per second. It is rather for rare fun: video congratulations and so, cat photograph Yutuba.
Despite the touch control, the mechanical buttons for the smartphone still have: volume control and on / off . These buttons are on the right side – you can reach them with your right thumb without any problems. The left side is devoid of control.
Now let's open the phone. Under the cover there was a removable battery, a connector for the microSD memory card and two connectors for SIM cards. According to official technical specifications, the maximum amount of supported cards is 32 GB. Probably, C Plus also recognizes larger maps. Removable battery capacity – another nice part of the Moto C Plus. If you eventually need to replace it, then this will not be a problem. The procedure will take less than a minute, and it is not necessary to carry a smartphone into the service.
Now about SIM cards. Moto C Plus can work with two SIM cards simultaneously, but 3G / 4G mode is supported by only one slot. This is a standard practice for dvuhsimochnyh devices. Therefore, installing a sim card with the Internet – do not make a mistake with the connector.
The battery, by the way, is very good – 4000 mAh. And it is right. This is not a top fashionable smartphone with a bunch of features and the need for a steep and delicate design. Here it is better to add a couple of millimeters to the thickness, but to make the smartphone work more than a day from one charge. The thickness of Moto C Plus, incidentally, is exactly 1 cm (10 mm), which is not so much.
The smartphone is running a fresh operating system Android 7.0. The whole thing is spinning on the capacities of the four-core processor MediaTek MT6737, which replaced the MT6735. SoC is produced according to the standards of the 28-nm process and carries 4 cores of Cortex-A53 operating at 1300 MHz. The role of the graphics processor is ARM Mali-T720 MP2.
The amount of RAM is 1 gigabyte, and the constant – 16 GB. It is expanded with a microSD memory card. But the support of cellular networks in Moto C Plus pleased. The smartphone supports 4G LTE Cat4 networks (channels 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20, 38, 40), as well as Bluetooth 4.2, (A2DP, LE) and Wi-Fi. The latter can easily catch the signal from the access point, even through two reinforced concrete walls. Verified.
The interface of Moto C Plus is the best possible – pure Andoird. No decorations will not brake the system. Well, if the user wants to bring beauty, then to his services store Play.Market with a huge selection of diverse shells, including free. What is called, for every taste and color.

Examples of photographs
The camera can do very good pictures. Of course, this requires the sun or a lot of light, but it does. However, there is one nuance. The camera is very sensitive to light. Those. You need to choose a source of lighting well, otherwise the photo will be faded. Despite this, for a smartphone for 8000 rubles, this is a very decent image quality. Very delicate are even such complex objects as nature, which turns out to be very detailed – leaves and grass do not turn into a solid green mush.
The overall impression of the Moto C Plus
Moto C Plus was the workhorse that lacks stars from the sky, but it does its job well. Moto C Plus has support for 4G networks and the ability to install two SIM cards, a 5-inch screen and a quad-core processor. For normal operation, such a set is more than enough.
Of course, Moto C Plus is not a flagship, but it costs 4 – 5 times cheaper. At the same time, the smartphone received a thin case for devices of its class (1 cm thick), a bright screen that does not blind in the sun, with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, and a removable battery with a capacity of 4,000 mAh. And as a result: a long battery life. And what else is required of a reliable budget smartphone?
