And to begin with…
How will you use your Smartphone?For heavy or occasional use, the models to be chosen will not be the same.The operating system is a matter of taste; on this C3 32 GB, Nokia chose Android.
Now let’s see the results of our situational testing.
Following our tests, we see that this C3 32 GB is not good for all cases.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.

|Taking pictures or filming|
The C3 32 GB adapted for internet use and travel ?
The main advantage of a smartphone is to be connected everywhere and therefore to be mobile.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
The C3 32 GB is almost a model.A size of 5.99 inches that would have been normal in the early days of smartphones, but not anymore.
A size that does not invite fluid use on the internet.Even less good for watching a movie.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.This smartphone comes with GPS.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.That is, several operators at the same time.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
We found out that this C3 32 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or the shocks of everyday life.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.There is only 3040 mAh, which is low for normal use.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.This is very useful when the smartphone battery is empty and you’re in a hurry.
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.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
With a low reading comfort, the C3 32 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.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1440.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
Nokia sought to improve the audio experience.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.A technology that ensures quality sound.
On the sound side, we find that there are no stereo speakers.
The Nokia phone, for video games?
Smartphone games now require power.Games, but also applications require batteries.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.
What came out of our tests is that the C3 32 GB is low in power.The Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.You will only have 32 GB for your videos and music.But some of you will need more; that’s why Nokia has left a free slot for a memory card.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.The power of 3040 mAH will require you to recharge during the day.
It will be necessary to limit the applications installed on this smartphone.The components do not allow for a quality display.This is an entry-level model: 269* pixels per inch.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
For audio or video use?
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.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.Editing and sharing options should also be analyzed.Nokia has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
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.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this C3 32 GB.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.Reprocessing photos is not intuitive.You will be able to take pictures perfectly, but don’t expect high quality.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 32 GB.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.And then we advise you to provide external backup solutions.
The C3 32 GB, a good choice for the right use
Following our tests, we see that this C3 32 GB is not good for all cases.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.
