C3 16 GB for mobility?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile. Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
C3 16 GB’s really small.A size of 5.99 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Even less good for watching a movie.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.You will be able to enjoy quality web access, anywhere, even on the other side of the world.This smartphone comes with GPS.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.This means that it is possible to have several active subscriptions in the device.And therefore several operators on this model.An interesting option abroad.
We found out that this C3 16 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.In other words, the scratches or the shocks that happen to us all, will inevitably appear.If you decide on this model, remember to use a transparent tempered glass film, adapted to the shape of the screen.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.With a power of 3040 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
And since Nokia did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
Interesting for the videos?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.It’s become a handy tool.You can also simply listen to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
Unsurprisingly, this model is not really made for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.An 5.99 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.The resolution is low: 720 x 1440.He’ll be more comfortable listening to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
Nokia has also designed this product for audio use.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
Is it suitable for games?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.For smooth and responsive rendering on 3D video games, it is necessary to combine a good processor with a good graphics processor.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
In the end, we found that the power of this C3 16 GB is below its competitors.Its Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) processor is not very powerful, and the GPU is not at the expected level.Which makes it look just passable.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.It’s 16 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.In fact, for some passionate users, Nokia has provided an extra space to add more.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.Its 3040 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.The components do not allow for a quality display.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Concerning audio or video use?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.But this characteristic is not everything.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Generally speaking, Nokia has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
On the other hand it’s a little light for the camera part.There is thus only one lens, to be installed on this model.
Don’t expect to see a nice picture on this C3 16 GB; a lower photo resolution than its competitors.An image resolution of 8 Mp which will give a mediocre result.You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.Also, it is difficult to retouch images properly.This C3 16 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This phone offers very little space: 16 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Forget about your music and movies, in addition to your many applications.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
The C3 16 GB, a good choice for the right use
This C3 16 GB is not good for all uses.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
