On the other hand, the Moto C Plus will be available in $131 for 1GB of RAM and 16GB of primary storage.

    Bottom Line

    Though the 1GB RAM of Moto C and Moto C Plus is not ideal especially when the market already has smartphones with 4GB or greater RAM, but a 4000mAh battery at such low price is something appreciable. Moreover, both smartphones support the latest mobile operating system Android 7.0 Nougat that persuades us to give these handsets a try.
