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.With lesser performance, it does not reach the level of the best.In the end, it’s a second choice in addition to your main smartphone.

Is the C3 16 GB compatible for nomadic use?
The intended use of your future phone is of utmost importance.If for you, a phone is just for making calls, you probably won’t need a smartphone.
The C3 16 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.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.This smartphone has GPS.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.And therefore several operators on this model.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
No protection on the screen of this C3 16 GB.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.You will need to plan for the purchase of a protective film.
A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.There is only 3040 mAh, which is low for normal use.You’ll think about having an external battery backup nearby.
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.
Analysis of multimedia functions.
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s become a handy tool.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.However, the first smartphone that comes along is not necessarily going to fit.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s not doing as well as most of his competitors.An 5.99 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.For information, the resolution is 720 x 1440.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.The result is less light scattering, resulting in a wider viewing angle and deeper tones.
Nokia sought to improve the audio experience.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.The transmission is fluid and the sound is clear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
Is it suitable for games?
Smartphone games now require power.Games, but also applications require batteries.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.In short, the more advanced the components are, the better the gameplay will be.
What came out of our tests is that the C3 16 GB is low in power.The components are starting to date (Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) processor), and the quality is less good.The rendering at the image level is inferior to the competition.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.You will only have 16 GB for your videos and music.And because Nokia predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
In case you play a lot, you’re going to strain the drums.The result is at the bottom of our ranking.Its 3040 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.The components do not allow for a quality display.This is an entry-level model: 269* pixels per inch.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
What about the videos?
Having become an essential use of smartphones, the photo function has made great strides since the first generations.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.Being able to share photos taken with one click is also important.Nokia has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
Little progress has been made by Nokia.There is indeed only one lens on this phone.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.An image resolution of 8 Mp which will give a mediocre result.We do not recommend this device to anyone who regularly selfies with their smartphone.The editing function is out of date.This C3 16 GB allows you to take pictures, but will not restore the brightness or colors.
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.
The C3 16 GB, a good choice for the right use
The design of this C3 16 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.
