Nokia 3 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Nokia 3 review: The cheapest Android toting Nokia smartphone is well built and offers a clean Android experience with the Pixel launcher and Google Assistant. But does it offer enough to compete with the Moto G Play, Moto E and more?

Great software ; Budget price ; Battery life will get you through the day

Terrible performance ; Bad display ; Unreliable camera

Nokia 3 review: Three isn't the magic number

 

The Nokia 3 is a forgettable device and can only really be recommended for someone who is an infrequent smartphone user, with low expectations when it

Quality design and build

Poor display quality ; Laggy performance ; Poor battery life with no fast charging

The Nokia 3 feels like the wrong first step for a new Nokia. We accept that there's a great demand for phones that are affordable, but with the likes of Motorola offering some great devices around this price or a fraction higher, it's hard to see how...

Nokia 3 review

 

Stand-out styling, but sub-power power

Looks more than it costs ; Near-standard Android UI ; Decent price

Not enough power ; Below-average battery ; No fingerprint sensor

A decent first effort for the ‘new’ Nokia, but good looks and an unmolested version of Android don't make up for a lacklustre performance

Nokia 3 review

 

A budget smartphone with an eye-catching design

Solid build quality and premium design ; Remarkably Low price ; Stock Android software works great

Disappointing performance may become frustrating ; Limited storage if you want to download lots ; Middling battery life may be an issue

It may look like one of the best cheap phones on the market but the Nokia 3 is style over substance, struggling with long load times and poor battery life.

Nokia 3 review

 

Nokia is back with a new budget Android smartphone, the Nokia 3, which is finally on sale in the UK. Find out what we thought in our Nokia 3 review.

We had high hopes for the Nokia 3, but the final phone is a bit of a disappointment. We can't deny that it looks absolutely fantastic for the price, and we're fans of Nokia's decision to stick to stock Android, but it's just cut too many corners on the...

Nokia 3 review

 

The Nokia 3 is the lowest-end of Nokia's new line of Android phones. It's on sale in the UK for £120, but you will have to make sacrifices for that price. That converts to $156 or AU$200, although Nokia has no plans to bring the phone to the US.

The Android-based Nokia 3 is dirt-cheap, looks good and is comfortable to hold in one hand.

Its lack of power makes using the phone sluggish and frustrating.

The Nokia 3 sacrifices too much processing power to achieve its low price. You’re better off spending a bit more on the Motorola Moto G5.

Nokia 3.1 review: Hands on with the Nokia 3's larger sibling

 

The Nokia 3 has had an upgrade with the Nokia 3.1, but it's still lacking in certain features

The trouble is at £130, there isn't much direct competition, aside from the 2016 Motorola Moto G4, which you can still buy for £140. But, as long as you don't mind buying a generation-old phone, the Moto is the better choice. It has a bigger,...

Nokia 3 review: Not the one on release, and not the one in 2018

 

Gets the basics right, including the design, but the Nokia 3 falls short in most other respects

I really, really, really wanted to like the Nokia 3. I’ve always loved the way the company designs its smartphones, and the look and feel of this model is classic Nokia. I like the fact that it runs pure Android and that it has 16GB of storage. It’s...

Nokia 3 review

Nokia has returned to the smartphone world with a few budget-friendly options. The Nokia 3 is its cheapest offering and has a pretty generous spec for its price, but can it power through the day without needing a recharge, and how easy is it to use?...

How cheap is too cheap? You’ll see

 

The Android phone sacrifices too much power in order to keep costs down.
