Moto C Plus Design:

In terms of design, Moto C Plus is very identical to its smaller sibling Moto C with respect to design. The smartphone sports a micro-textured back cover and Motorola’s iconic design, giving it a simple and classy look. The volume rockers as well as the power/lock buttons are placed on the right-hand edge of the device and a 3.5mm audio jack is placed on the very top of the phone. The speaker grille is seen at the back side of the device and a microUSB 2.0 charging port is sitting on the very top edge of the mobile. Like the Moto C, the Moto C Plus smartphone is seen sporting capacitive navigation buttons, just below the display panel, while the top display panel houses a selfie camera, an LED flash and an earpiece. As mentioned earlier, Moto C Plus sports a similar design to the Moto C, except some internal changes such as screen resolution, processing power, camera unit and battery.
