This phone appears to be affordable, with a beginning price of Rs. 7,499. It’s an ideal opportunity to check whether the Nokia C3 worth purchasing.
Nokia C3 design: A bit too simple
The removable battery in the Nokia C3 is one of the components which brings back certain recollections. The whole back shell is a solitary bit of plastic that falls off so you can install the battery, SIM cards(dual-SIM), and a microSD card. It’s not very thick at 8.69mm and gauges an agreeable 184.5g.
The Nokia C3 looks exquisite, on account of the moderate back which just has a small vertical camera module and fingerprint sensor. The backboard doesn’t pull in fingerprints and offers a great grasp. The volume and power buttons are to one side, while the committed Google Assistant button is put on the left. There’s an earphone jack on the top and a Micro-USB port at the base. There’s no pattern for a speaker, and that is because the Nokia C3 utilizes its earpiece as the amplifier.
Talking about the phone’s front, there is a 5.99-inch HD+ IPS display with hardened glass. The design of the front likewise feels nostalgic, however truly, this is something that is best overlooked. Rather than a score, the Nokia C3 has thick, old fashioned borders on the top and base, and moderately smaller ones to the sides.
You get a 5W charger, a USB link, and a quick-start aide. There’s no case or headset.

The Nokia C3 is powered by a Unisoc (previously known as Spreadtrum) SC9863A octa-center SoC. It comprises of eight ARM Cortex-A55 CPU centers running at up to 1.6GHz. It’s based on a fairly old 28nm manufacture process, which probably won’t be as efficient power as what a portion of the more up to date SoCs from MediaTek and Qualcomm use.
Different features consist of Wi-Fi n, Bluetooth 4.2, and FM radio. The last requires a headset to be associated with work. The Nokia C3 upholds 4G VoLTE and GPS. It has some essential sensors, for example, a proximity sensor, surrounding the light sensor, and an accelerometer. There’s no gyroscope and compass tragically, which implies you can’t see the direction you’re looking in applications like Google Maps.

The main third-party application is called My Phone from HMD Global, and it’s for after-sales backing and gadget maintenance. You get some basic signals in the Settings application, yet that is the degree of customization.
The C3 isn’t the part for Google’s Android One program, so you don’t get that assurance of two years of programming updates. But it’s not running Android like the Nokia 1.
Battery life: Quite disappointing
The Nokia C3 doesn’t have an enormous battery, coming in at 3,040mAh in the limit. It performed inadequately in our HD video circle test, going on for only 7 hours and 34 minutes, which is perhaps the last time we’ve recorded in some time. With medium to light utilize, It had the option to get pretty much an entire day of battery life, yet watching recordings or gaming channels the battery rapidly. Charging the battery isn’t expedient. You just get a 5W power connector in the container, and in any event, when associated with a quicker charger
Cameras: Barely usable
The Nokia C3 has a single 8-megapixel back camera and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Self-adjust/Auto-focus is by and large on the more slow side and deteriorates in low light. The application offers fundamental shooting modes however some basic ones, for example, Portrait mode, are absent. There is an auto-HDR work, which is ideal to see.
