About Nokia

Nokia used to be one of the world's biggest mobile phone manufacturers but it fell behind with the advent of iPhone and Android smartphones. In 2014, Nokia's Devices and Services division was sold to Microsoft. In 2016, Finnish company HMD Global bought a part of Microsoft's feature phone business and has a licensing agreement that allows it to make smartphones under the Nokia brand.


Nokia 3 Detailed Review

Nokia 3 design

The Nokia 3 brings freshness to the budget segment. While the Nokia 3 doesn't have an all-metal body, the quality of polycarbonate used for the back and its metal frame still make the design good overall. It's minimalist without feeling cheap.

The feel of the phone in a hand is one of the best we have experienced in this segment.Our review unit was a Matte Black version of the Nokia 3, and it is also available in Silver White. The power and volume buttons are on the right and were painted black to match the phone's body.On the left, you'll find the dedicated slots for two SIM cards and a microSD card.

Typing on this phone was easy enough, and at 8.48mm thick, but the latter has a much bigger battery.The power and volume rocker buttons were placed slightly too high and we had to stretch to reach them while using the phone with one hand.

Inside the Nokia 3 box, you will get a user guide, a charger, USB cable, earphones, and a SIM ejector tool apart from the phone itself.

Nokia 3 specifications and software

The phone is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6737 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM.The Nokia 3 features a 5-inch IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 720x1280 pixels and 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass.  The phone packs a non-removable 2630mAh battery. 4G and VoLTE (voice over LTE) are supported, and connectivity options include USB-OTG, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. It has 16GB of storage which can be expanded using a microSD card (up to 128GB).

The Nokia 3 supports Google Assistant out-of-the-box, which is yet to arrive on many other phones in the same price segment.Apart from monthly security updates.

Nokia 3 performance and camera

Despite using it for GPS navigation and long gaming sessions, the phone didn't get warm, which is another advantage of the polycarbonate back.However, we felt could feel the phone slowing down a bit while multitasking and we experienced some lags when switching from one app to another when there were over 12 apps open in the background. The phone was able to handle light games with ease, but graphics-heavy ones like Need for Speed: No Limits did slow down, which was annoying.

There are 8-megapixel cameras at the front and back. The rear camera features an f/2.0 aperture, autofocus, and an LED flash. The front camera, on the other hand, also has autofocus and an 84-degree field of view. The 8-megapixel rear camera does okay in good lighting conditions, and autofocusing is quick as well.The Nokia 3 has an HDR mode though we noticed that it didn't always kick in when required, and we felt that it could have helped in several cases. Unfortunately, low-light shots came out badly.The Nokia 3 supports 1080p video recording, and the quality is decent. The front camera on the phone also disappointed us, as despite its autofocus capability photos still came out blurry. You can use the Nokia 3 for a quick video call or casual selfies, but don't expect a lot in terms of quality.

Nokia 3 battery life

The battery in the Nokia 3 lasted for roughly 16-18 hours of heavy usage, considering its 2630mAh capacity. There's no support for fast charging, and it took roughly two hours to get up to 100% which is longer than other phones with bigger batteries usually take.
