Nokia C3 is a mid-budget range smartphone and has been introduced in the Indian market with a price of Rs 7,499. At this price too, users will get the facility of many great features. Where previously Nokia's smartphones lagged behind other brands in terms of hardware and specifications, now the company has tried to make some changes with Nokia C3. This time, better specifications have been used in the smartphone than before. We got a chance to use this smartphone for a few days and we reviewed it. In this review, you will get to know how much this low-priced smartphone meets your expectations?
Nokia C3: Price
Nokia C3 has been launched in India in two storage variants. The price of 2GB RAM and 16GB memory variants of this smartphone is Rs 7,499. While variants with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage can be purchased for Rs. 8,999. This smartphone is available in blue and sand colour options.
Nokia C3: Design and Display
We got the sand colour variant of Nokia C3 for review. Which is similar in appearance to the company’s old device? This time also the company has not made any change in the design. But the special thing is that while the smartphone maker companies are using the unibody design, Nokia has removed the trend and still used the removable back panel. The back panel of the phone has a single rear camera with LED flash. At the same time, there is a fingerprint sensor under it, and at the same time, users will see the company's logo. The build quality of this smartphone made of plastic body is very strong and it can be easily held in the hand.
The phone has a 5.99-inch HD + IPS display. Although the front panel is nothing new, it looks similar to the company's previous device. The power and volume buttons are given on the right side of the phone. The good thing is that in this you have a dedicated Google Assistant button in the left panel. That is, you can use it by clicking this button now.
Nokia C3: Hardware and Performance
The Nokia C3 has been introduced on the Unisoc SC9863A chipset, which is equipped with a quad-core processor with 1.6 GHz clock speed and 1.2 GHz processor. It uses the stock Android One OS. Storage of the phone has 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. While the second variant comes with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. Now talking about its performance, while using this smartphone, it was lagging a bit in switching between apps, but in this budget, it is capable of giving a satisfactory performance. Given the price, the problem of lag can be ignored. However, in this smartphone, you cannot play heavy games, but you can enjoy light games. But this smartphone does heat slightly during gaming.
Nokia C3: Camera and Battery
Nokia C3 has an 8MP single rear camera setup with LED flash. Which gives a very simple performance? This normal photo clicks in the sunlight. But clicking the photo in low light requires the use of LED flash, although still, the photo does not show that much clarity. The camera app has an auto-HDR feature that can click photos accurately in good conditions. But the photo clicked in low light may disappoint you. At the same time, the phone has a 5MP front camera for video calling and selfie. But its quality is not as good. So to say clearly, it would be good if you do not use this phone for a selfie.
Talking about the battery, the Nokia C3 has a battery of 3,040mAh. But in this budget range in the market, you will find many smartphones with 5000mAh batteries. In this case, this phone remained a little chased in terms of battery because in this budget, it can compete with many other smartphones. It takes about two hours to charge the phone. If you use the phone for calling and messaging, then it can run smoothly one day.
Nokia C3: Final decision
Nokia C3 is a stock Android smartphone that is integrated with Android One. In which you will get the facility of an update for two years. Also, the feature of the phone is the Google Assistant button given in it, which makes the usage very easy. However, in this budget, you will find many other smartphones in the market which are equipped with special features.
