HMD Global probably won’t have had a champion Nokia cell phone in some time, as I would like to think, yet there’s no rejecting that the vast majority of its Android telephones to date have looked great. Today, we’ll be inspecting the organization’s latest passage level Android offering, the Nokia C3. This spending telephone includes a basic plan and essential details, however ideally, that ought to be sufficient to offer a respectable Android experience. 

This telephone appears to be very reasonable, with a beginning cost of Rs. 7,499. It’s an ideal opportunity to check whether the Nokia C3 merits purchasing. 


On the off chance that the Nokia name wasn’t sufficient wistfulness, the removable battery in the Nokia C3 should bring back certain recollections. The whole back shell is a solitary bit of plastic which falls off so you can introduce the battery, SIM cards, and a microSD card. There are two spaces for Nano-SIM cards, so you won’t need any connectors. I have the Sand shading, which I think looks exceptionally decent. This telephone is additionally accessible in Nordic Blue. It’s not very thick at 8.69mm and gauges an agreeable 184.5g. 

The Nokia C3 looks rich, on account of the moderate back which just has a little vertical camera module and a unique mark sensor. The back board doesn’t pull in fingerprints, and offers great hold. The volume and force catches are to one side, while the devoted Google Assistant catch is set 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 on the grounds that the Nokia C3 utilizes its earpiece as the amplifier. 

Going to the front of the telephone, there is a 5.99-inch HD+ IPS show with hardened glass. The plan of the front additionally feels nostalgic, yet truly, this is something that is best overlooked. Rather than a score, the Nokia C3 has thick, good old outskirts on the top and base, and moderately smaller ones to the sides. This is definitely not a major protest for a section level telephone, however thinking about that its friends have likewise proceeded onward to more current plans, I figure HDM Global might have improved. 

The container substance are truly fundamental. You get a 5W charger, a USB link, and a brisk beginning aide. There’s no case or headset. 

The Nokia C3 is fueled by a Unisoc (earlier 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 somewhat old 28nm manufacture measure, which probably won’t be as force proficient as what a portion of the fresher SoCs from MediaTek and Qualcomm use. 

I’m trying the variation of the Nokia C3 with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of capacity, which is estimated at Rs. 8,999. The base variation with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of capacity is valued at Rs. 7,499. 

Different highlights incorporate Wi-Fi n, Bluetooth 4.2 and FM radio. The last requires a headset to be associated so as to work. The Nokia C3 underpins 4G VoLTE and GPS. It has some fundamental sensors, for example, a closeness sensor, surrounding light sensor and an accelerometer. There’s no whirligig and compass shockingly, which implies you can’t see the heading you’re looking in applications like Google Maps. 

The Nokia C3 runs stock Android 10 with simply the fundamental applications from Google preinstalled. The main outsider application is called My Phone from HMD Global, and it’s for after-deals backing and gadget support. You get some essential motions in the Settings application, however that is the degree of the customisation. The Google Assistant catch ought to be convenient in the event that you are an enthusiastic client of Google’s menial helper. It can’t be remapped to dispatch some other application or capacity however. The C3 isn’t important for Google’s Android One program, so you don’t get that assurance of two years of programming refreshes. Notwithstanding, at any rate it’s not running Android 10 (Go Edition) like the Nokia 1₹ 4,672 (Review). 

Utilizing Android on the Nokia C3 was a nice encounter, however even with 3GB of RAM and bone-stock Android, it wasn’t the smoothest. Activitys and performing various tasks caused some discontinuous falter and slack. The unique mark sensor functioned admirably, however the screen took somewhat longer than expected to wake up. Face acknowledgment was likewise delayed to kick in and perform confirmation. Gaming execution wasn’t incredible either. Straightforward titles, for example, Sky Force Reloaded ran alright, yet anything heavier truly battled to run well or convey great illustrations. 

This absence of execution is obvious in benchmarks as well. I got a good AnTuTu score of 1,06,338 focuses, which was comparable to what the MediaTek Helio G35 SoC can convey, as found in our audits of the Redmi 9 (Review) and Realme C12 (Review). In any case, the illustrations scores were a considerable amount lower. The Nokia C3 oversaw only 26fps in GFXBench’s T-Rex test. The showcase gets enough splendid and recordings don’t look really awful on it. The earpiece speaker gets especially uproarious as it faces you straightforwardly and there’s practically no opportunity of it being hindered by your palm. 


The Nokia C3 doesn’t have a huge battery, coming in at 3,040mAh in limit. It performed inadequately in our HD video circle test, going on for only 7 hours and 34 minutes, which is probably the most reduced time we’ve recorded in some time. With medium to light utilize, I had the option to get pretty much an entire day of battery life, however watching recordings or gaming channels the battery rapidly. Charging the battery isn’t expedient. You just get a 5W power connector in the crate, and in any event, when associated with a quicker charger, I was just ready to energize the battery to around 43 percent in 60 minutes. 


The Nokia C3 has a solitary 8-megapixel back camera and a 5-megapixel selfie camera. Self-adjust is by and large on the more slow side and deteriorates in low light. The application offers fundamental shooting modes however some regular ones, for example, Portrait mode, are absent. There is an auto-HDR work, which is ideal to see. 

I believe it’s really obvious at this point that the Nokia C3 doesn’t offer the best an incentive for cash, particularly the 3GB variation that is estimated at Rs. 8,999. I think the Realme Narzo 10A (Review) or even the Narzo 20A, which we’re right now testing, would be vastly improved other options. Aside from good form quality and a spotless Android experience, the Nokia C3 needs more going in support of its to legitimize this cost. The exhibition is mediocre, battery life is powerless, cameras aren’t acceptable, and it looks somewhat antiquated. 

In case you’re on a limited spending plan, the Realme C11 (Review) ought to be a superior pick at Rs. 7,499. You lose the unique mark sensor and execution is pretty much like that of the C3, yet at any rate you’ll be improving battery life.
