Nokia C3 Design

The Nokia C3 features a 5.99 inches capacitive touchscreen display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels, 18:9 ratio. The design aspect of the new Nokia smartphone is meager with a large frame on all sides and a bit of a chin.

Nokia C3 Hardware Performance

As an entry-level budget smartphone, the Nokia C3 has a couple of promising features that can handle day-to-day activities. The Nokia C3 is powered by an octa-core 1.6GHz, Unisoc SC9863A coupled with IMG8322 GPU. There is up to 3GB RAM and 16GB or 32GB onboard storage options, which can further be expanded up to 128GB using the dedicated microSD card slot. The smartphone is capable of handling all your daily tasks like browsing on the internet, social media app, and even a couple of games.

Nokia C3 Camera Performance

The Nokia C3 has a very basic camera setup. There is a single camera module consisting of an 8 MP (f/2.0), 1080p@30fps lens with an LED flash. For selfies, there’s a 5MP camera in the front. Although there’s a single camera, it comes with a couple of features like Geo-Tagging, HDR, Panorama, and more. Yet, other budget smartphones with a similar price bracket feature dual-camera and even triple-camera setup.

Nokia C3 Price To Specs Ratio

The Nokia C3 debuts at Rs. 7,499 for the base variant of 2GB RAM and 16GB storage. The higher variant of 3GB RAM and 32GB storage ships for Rs. 8,999.

Nokia C3 Important Features/Highlights

The Nokia C3 features a 3,040 mAh battery and skips fast charging and Type-C port. It would be difficult to feature fast charging for this price bracket, but a Type-C port could be included. It includes a couple of connectivity options like Wi-Fi 802.11, hotspot support, GPS / GLONASS, and Dual Sim. The Nokia C3 runs stock Android 10 OS, which frees users from loaded bloatware.

Nokia C3 Verdict

There are a few features that make the Nokia C3 a good budget smartphone. The dedicated microSD card and audio jack, and also the stock Android OS are positive factors. However, even with this budget price tag, HMD Global could have given us a better camera. The Nokia C3 is a good budget smartphone however, there are plenty of better options in the market for a similar price bracket.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.

Camera

Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.

Battery

Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.

Display

The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.

Performance

This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
