The most important thing to know about the Moto C and C Plus, it seems, is that the phones are cheap. Like, really cheap.

Motorola's Moto C starts at 89 euros (which converts to $98, £76 and AU$132), and the more advanced C Plus begins at 119 euros (that coverts to $131, £101 and AU$176).

With prices this low, you're looking at hardware and software basics.
