And now that you know, our tests will let you know if, in terms of features and functionality, this smartphone is right for you.
This C3 16 GB is not good for all uses.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.

|Making photos or movies|
Is the C3 16 GB compatible for nomadic use?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
That C3 16 GB looks really small.Indeed, with its 5.99 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.This smartphone has 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.
This on model, you can have more than one phone number.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.
Detail that is missing on this C3 16 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.With a power of 3040 mAh, you will be forced to recharge more often.Keep your charger handy.
And since Nokia did not consider it useful to put a fast charge on this model, we will have to wait.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.A handy device for watching videos.The same goes for listening to music.They are quite powerful and quite connected by streaming video.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
With a low reading comfort, the C3 16 GB is not designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.Its screen is not big enough to enjoy a video, let alone a movie.The resolution is low: 720 x 1440.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
This includes an IPS LCD screen.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
Nokia has also designed this product for audio use.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The sound result is of a good level.
Finally, we deplore the absence of stereo speakers.
Is it suitable for games?
Smartphone games now require power.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 other words, the power of the technical components is essential to enjoy the game phases.
What came out of our tests is that the C3 16 GB is low in power.The Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) processor is an older generation.Which makes it look just passable.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This phone only defaults to 16 GB; that’s probably fair.And because Nokia predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.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.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Please note that this model does not allow contactless payments.
For audio or video use?
Over time, smartphones have become almost as good as cameras.The reason being related to the millions of pixels they are equipped with.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.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.A photo resolution of 8 Mp which gives a low quality result.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.The sensor of this C3 16 GB is of very average quality and will dissuade you from using this smartphone for this kind of exercise.
This device contains only 16 GB of storage space; less than most.That means you’ll have to make choices between videos, photos and applications.To put it plainly, you will have to make room regularly or your memory will be saturated.
Finally, the C3 16 GB…
Following our tests, we see that this C3 16 GB is not good for all cases.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.Only its well-placed price is interesting; it can be a temporary choice.
