Nokia C3


With a full qwerty keyboard and great design this phone offers more than we'd ever expect for under £100.

The Nokia C3 clearly isn't the be all and end all, and betrays its sub-£100 price in its low resolution screen, limited number of functions, and slow performance. However, if you're happy to be a little patient at times it holds up very well. Its...

Full review: Budget Nokia smartphone with QWERTY keyboard

Expert review by : Paul Lester (

Nokia C3


Touchscreen devices have taken off in a big way in the mobile marketplace, but despite the undoubted benefits of large screens and intuitive controls, many users are still averse to giving up a tactile keypad. Nokia is one of a handful of companies to...

Responsive display and control system, impressive range of connectivity, very solid and stylish, impressive camera, reasonably priced

Some features and media controls are a little basic, web browsing can be sluggish, no GPS

Though the C3-01 is a little underwhelming as an overall package, there’s enough within its armoury to recommend it at the price, and GPS aside it still ticks most boxes when it comes to modern features. This is a superbly stylish, solidly built and...

Nokia C3 review


Does the low cost Nokia C3 offer great value for money?

Super mini QWERTY keyboard ; Wi-Fi ; Good Twitter and Facebook integration ; Top-mounted 3.5mm jack

Not 3G ; Poor web browsing experience ; Average camera

Nokia's C3 is a companion to the recently launched, and well-received, C5 and a lookalike for the perennial favourite E72. But don't, for a single moment, labour under the illusion that it is a direct competitor for, or update of, the E72.

Nokia C3 review


With smartphones becoming more and more affordable, the definition of a budget phone has been gradually changing. The Nokia C3 fits into the mould of the new breed of budget phones - phones that offer more than simple calling and messaging features.

The Nokia C3’s price tag of £69 inc VAT (SIM-free, pay as you go) makes it easily one of the most affordable phones we’ve reviewed. The C3 offers Wi-Fi and a hardware keyboard, as well as good looks and build quality and a fast interface. If you aren’t...

Nokia C3-01


The concept is based on the idea that a part of users today prefer the regular key pad to the touchscreen because they want blind typing. But they are also curious about touchscreen phones because they want to try something new. And these undecided...

Nokia C3-01 Review


I have to say that reviewing this handset has definitely taken me back to my first few handsets which were candy bar with a lovely keypad, now you might think that is a bad thing but it isn't necessarily to be honest because simple isn't a bad thing I...

Nokia C3 smartphone review


Nokia C3 smartphone review,A budget messaging device that syncs with Facebook and Twitter, technology news from Khidr Suleman at

Cheap; good battery life; solid chassis

No 3G; cluttered interface; only 55MB of internal memory

The C3 is not a bad handset, but just feels rather average. The lack of 3G is a big letdown and the interface could do with an overhaul. We know Nokia is capable of doing better and are expecting big things from the forthcoming N8.

Nokia - C3


Nokia's C3 looks at first glance to be every inch a high end messaging phone. But it is in fact a mid range handset, the price indicating that it can't possibly offer top end smartphone features. ...

The Nokia C3 is well made, has good battery life and sports a superb miniature QWERTY keyboard. But 3G is notably absent, making the Nokia C3 somewhat hamstrung.
