    Well the Moto C is certainly a surprise…

    A few years back I reviewed the original Moto G. At the time this provided incredible value for money; something I mentioned in the recent Moto G5 review. I also alluded to the Moto G range perhaps losing its way. No longer is it the serious budget must-have it once was, undercut by cheaper import brands.

    Well the Moto C looks set to take that crown back. Redefining the budget phone for 2017, the basic Moto C is just £89. Of course at this price you don’t get much, although Moto are keen to stress you get the essentials.

    The phone is due to launch in June in 3 colours: Starry Black, Metallic Cherry and Fine Gold. Pre-orders are now open at Clove Technology. We are awaiting pricing for the Moto C Plus, which will have a slight spec and price bump.
