Review Motorola’s G5 Plus Doesn’t Need Moto Mods To Impress Fergus Halliday

Lenovo has announced two new affordable low-end devices today: the Moto C, and the more powerful Moto C Plus. The Moto Z2 family could be officially announced on June 8 (this date is visible on the home screens of both phones).

All that lot starts at a meagre €89 (£75) for the Moto C and €119 (£100) for the Moto C Plus and will go on sale in the spring for Europe. The exact cost of the Moto C will be $98 while the C Plus will sell for a price starting from $131.

The Moto C Plus features a 5-inch (720x1280 pixels) display, and is powered by a 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6737 quad-core Cortex-A53 SoC paired with 2GB of RAM. The phone offers 1GB of RAM along with 8GB of storage space: the bare minimums, but we don't expect anything more at this price point. This smartphone will also come with 2x SIM card slots, one of which can also be used as a microSD card slot for additional media storage. On the camera front, there is a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP selfie camera. Our previous feature on the Moto C also says the phone will run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, with a 5-inch 854 x 480 display. On the other hand, the Moto G series will introduce two new devices named Moto GS and Moto GS+. Moto C will be available in a 3G version, starting at Euro 89 (roughly Rs. 6,200) with 1GB RAM/8GB storage, and the 4G option starting at Euro 99 (roughly Rs. 6,900) with 1GB RAM/8GB storage. The phone is also available in a number of colors, including Metallic Cherry, Pearl White, Fine Gold or Starry Black.

Maria Sharapova retires from the Italian Open with thigh injury
Seventh seed Svetlana Kuznetsova is also into the last 16 after the Russian defeated Czech Katerina Siniakova 6-1 7-6 (7/3). Not that Sharapova herself realised the significance of her 6-4, 6-2 win against Christina McHale , of the USA.

Moto C is a sleek-designed phone with micro-textured back cover and a vivid display. "As mentioned above, the leaked image stated that the C and C Plus both sport 5" displays, but the Moto C Plus will have a larger display than it's non-Plus counterpart. You'll also get an unspecified 1.1GHz quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM.

Motorola is really proud of the battery capacities on the C and C Plus.

There's a 5 MP primary camera with a 74-degree field of view, fixed focus lens and an LED flash. Both the phones feature the same 2MP front camera though.
