Reviews for the Nokia C3

Nokia C3 Review
Source: The Mobile Indian English
The Nokia C3 does want to capture the budget market but in our opinion it fails to do so as the competition provides much better value for a much lesser price.

60% Nokia C3 Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
I think it's pretty apparent by now that the Nokia C3 doesn't offer the best value for money, especially the 3GB variant that's priced at Rs. 8,999. I think the Realme Narzo 10A (Review) or even the Narzo 20A, which we're currently testing, would be much better alternatives. Apart from decent build quality and a clean Android experience, the Nokia C3 doesn't have enough going in its favour to justify this price. The performance is middling, battery life is weak, cameras aren't good, and it looks a bit old-fashioned.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Nokia: The Finnish enterprise is one of the most important telecommunication companies and well-known for mobile technologies. The company started with netbooks in 2009.


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
