70% Nokia C30 review: An affordable phone for grandparents
Source: India Today English
The Nokia C30 is a mixed bag. It has a good display that I liked watching Netflix and Disney+ Hotstar shows on. But, at the same time, it is not fast enough for games that would complement this large screen. It has a battery that can run for days but an inevitable bulk that you might not appreciate. The cameras, again, are sometimes good and sometimes not up to expectations. And, most importantly, the software of the Nokia C30 is as bad as it is good, all thanks to pesky apps. I would recommend this phone only if you want a phone for entertainment on a budget. And yes, of course, for basic things like calls, texts, WhatsApp, and even Ludo King. More than youngsters, this phone is good for parents and grandparents who do not need many things on their phone, but a big display and a durable battery are what entices them.

60% Nokia C30 review: large display and clean software, but needs a bit more
Source: 91mobiles English
The Nokia C30 does not impart a great impression for a budget smartphone, courtesy its poor camera implementation, boring design, and sub-par processing capabilities. That said, the phone does offer reasonably good battery life, clean software, and a rather huge display. If those are aspects that appeal to you, the C30 can be worth consideration.

Nokia C30 Review, Pros and Cons
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
To conclude our review, can say that the Nokia C30 phone is a good phone for a very low budget. It is difficult to find such features that this model offers. Its unique feature is a nice screen and shiny battery where you are glued to the phone. On the other hand, you will have a basic process that can be an obstacle to better and faster performance. Also, your camera will not satisfy you. If you can compromise on these two specs, you will definitely value the phone. Nokia has a range of other releases along with this model. For regular work, the Nokia C30 is the right choice for anyone looking for a low-budget smartphone. In fact, you have more options to compare. One is the Realme C11 (2021) and the other is the Galaxy A12 Nacho smartphone as per our recommendation with some strong specs, this phone can also be a lookout choice for you.
