In a few words
When it comes to comparing smartphones with each other, you have several options.Depending on whether you are a seasoned user or a beginner, the choices are different.This model, the C3 32 GB uses Android, which is already a choice in the telephone world.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
The design of this C3 32 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.

|Making photos or movies|
What does mobility look like?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone. Mobility for surfing the internet, even on holiday.
A model that fits in your pocket: the C3 32 GB.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.99 inches) compared to other smartphones.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Forget the videos, too.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed. This phone is equipped with a GPS chip.You know where you stand.Important when you’re away from home.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.This means that you can manage several packages at the same time.This will even be possible with competing operators.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
No protection on the screen of this C3 32 GB.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
Unfortunately, on the battery side it’s not so good.With a power of 3040 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
In conclusion on battery charging, Nokia has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.Perfectly designed for our daily needs.It even replaces the radio, or to listen to music.Because of the power of smartphones and their connectivity, you can watch whatever you want.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
We would have liked the C3 32 GB to have been more powerful on the multimedia side.He’s one of the worst in the business.It’s hard to watch a video.The resolution is low: 720 x 1440.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
Nokia sought to improve the audio experience.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
Is it suitable for games?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.To play and have a smooth picture, you need to have the CPU and GPU at its best.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
In the end, we found that the power of this C3 32 GB is below its competitors.The Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.Which makes it look just passable.
As far as RAM is concerned, you’re at the minimum required on a smartphone.This phone only defaults to 32 GB; that’s probably fair.In fact, for some passionate users, Nokia has provided an extra space to add more.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.Moreover, this model is one of the least efficient at the moment.Its power of 3040 mAH will not allow you to enjoy it all day long.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.The components do not allow for a quality display.Its entry-level design with a smaller-than-average screen gives a disappointing result.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
The tool to make photos, movies?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Generally speaking, Nokia has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
The screen resolution of this C3 32 GB is among the lowest on the market.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .Also, it is difficult to retouch images properly.The sensor of this C3 32 GB is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This phone offers very little space: 32 GB; this is the smallest phone available.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
The C3 32 GB – in a nutshell
The design of this C3 32 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In short, it is mainly the price that will guide your choice.
