Moto C Philippines

One of Moto’s new budget smartphones is now here. After it went official last month, we now have the Moto C in the Philippines thanks to Lazada.

For a quick rundown, the Moto C was launched together with the Moto C Plus. Both of which are aimed at the budget market. The two doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that most higher-end smartphones have. Instead, Moto focused on rigging the two with only the most essential and useful features.

Moto C - Price, Specs, Availability

For starters, the device has a low-res 854 x 480 resolution display. While it is clearly not the sharpest screen of all, it’s large 5-inch screen real-estate can still be utilitarian.

There’s also a decent 1.1GHz MediaTek quad-core processor, which can be capable enough to handle basic applications and casual games. The smartphone also has a 5-megapixel shooter at the back and a 2-megapixel selfie camera. But to compensate, Moto added a front-facing LED flash in case you’re really planning on taking selfies with it.

The device has two versions: a 8GB/3G and 16GB/4G variant. Disappointingly, Moto is only offering the second-rate 8GB/3G Moto C in the Philippines.
