Let's Talk About Motorola's Newly Launched "Cheap" Smartphones — The Moto C and The Moto C Plus.

Lenovo has unveiled the Moto C and C Plus — the company’s attempt at budget-friendly smartphones.

Their previous attempt was with the Moto E, priced at $129.
However, before you get this way 👇🏾because of the price tag (See below):

The Moto C would have a price tag of $97 (Approx N37,000) while the C Plus would be priced at $130 (N50,000 with the current exchange rate).

While some Tecno and Infinix fanboys might look at the specs and price tag with a disgusted face because they can get better offerings.

A lot of people who are familiar with the Motorola brand might be moved to get one of these devices.
So, over to you:
Would you be willing to sacrifice what you get from Infinix/Tecno/iTel for one of these devices?

    any phones running at 1.3ghz straight out of the box in 2017 is out of sync with pace of the tech world. the baseline should be 1.4 or 1.5ghz; this “little” bump in speed is what makes the difference for you running a heavy app stutter-free.
    my long story, since daybreak for Africa, is nada! Moto C, no thanks.

    Their attempt at a budget offering is laughable.In thought FWVGA displays met their end a couple of years ago? It has to be dirt cheap for one to consider it.
