The selfie-obsessed nation that India has gradually turned into has compelled smartphone makers to introduce selfie-specific features as well. The Moto C Plus might not impress with its camera configuration which includes an 8-megapixel rear camera along with a 2-megapixel front camera with f/2.8 aperture, however, it does include a front LED flash which is aimed at ensuring your selfie are better irrespective of the low megapixel count.

One of the talking points of the Moto C Plus is its mammoth battery capacity. It is fuelled by a 4,000mAh battery which is supported with Rapid Charger for fast charging. Motorola claims that it can provide up to 30 hours of backup on a single charge. The given battery capacity also makes the Moto C stand neck and neck with the current favorite in the budget category – Xiaomi Redmi 4.
One of the handful smartphones, especially in the under Rs 10,000 category, to boast the newest Android OS; the Moto C Plus runs Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. What also makes it worth the top feature list is that Motorola is not bundling any bloatware, making it for a pure Android experience. It is also noteworthy that the MediaTek MT6737 SoC that powers the Moto C Plus also powers the recently launched Nokia 3. However, the latter is priced slightly more at Rs 9,499.
