Motorola was USA based multinational telecommunications company founded on September 25, 1928; 88 years ago (as the Galvin Manufacturing Corporation). It is headquartered in 1303 East Algonquin Road, Schaumburg, Illinois, U.S. After consecutive losses back to back from the year 2007 to 2009 of $4.3 billion, the company is divided into two parts that were Motorola Solutions and Motorola Mobility. Then Motorola Mobility derives the Motorola. Handset division was a pioneer in cellular telephones in Motorola’s wireless telephone. It was also known as PCS (Personal Communication Sector) before 2004, the “mobile phone,” “flip phone,” “clam phone” are pioneered with DynaTAC, MicroTAC, and StarTAC respectively in the mid-1990s. By the mid-2000s it had staged resurgence with the RAZR.

In the second half of that decade, it has lost market share. Later it focused on the Android-based operating system (Google’s open-source). After losses continuous Motorola Mobility has been bought by Google in 2012. On May 22, 2012, Google had closed its deal to acquire Motorola Mobility, Google CEO Larry Page announced.

My reviews:

As according to me Motorola Moto C is a decent phone with less than average specifications. There are many smartphones on the market available at same price with better specifications. One of them is Xiaomi Redmi 4A which has the better camera, display resolutions, processor and much more. As far as Motorola Moto C is the concern, there is no point to buy a phone with such specification.
