Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type review: The missing link

 

Nokia seem to have the missing link in the evolution of mobile phones. The Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type is an attempt to bring the best of both worlds. A touch phone in a form factor that's as classic as it gets.

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad-band 3G with 10Mbps HSDPA and 2Mbps HSUPA ; Neat and well built, slim, light and metal clad ; 2.4" 256K-color resistive TFT QVGA touchscreen ; S40 6th edition UI ; 5 megapixel fixed-focus camera ; VGA video...

Small screen (for a touch phone) ; No multitasking ; No GPS ; Fixed-focus camera ; No smart dialing ; No video-call camera ; No adequate storage out of the box ; No accelerometer sensor ; No document viewer

Nokia C3 review: SNS love

 

Nokia C3 is young and social, simple and reliable. Messaging and social networking are the very heart of this handset. But are they enough of a head-turner to become a phone's key selling points? Sure thing! Just add a pinch of charisma and hang a...

QWERTY messenger bar ; Quad-band GSM/EDGE ; 802.11b/g Wi-Fi support ; Solid SNS integration on the homescreen and with dedicated buttons ; 2.4" 256K-color QVGA display with excellent sunlight legibility ; 2 megapixel fixed-focus camera ; QVGA video...

No 3G ; Low-grade camera, no autofocus, no flash ; Poor video recording ; S40 is outdated, never mind the visual updates ; No multi-tasking ; Doesn't charge off the microUSB port ; No USB cable in the retail box ; No office document viewer ; No smart...

At its Indonesia launch, the phone drew massive crowds and it seems success in Europe is only a matter of time – with a price tag of about 100 euro. Compromises are always implied in this price bracket but the Nokia C3 does well to focus all attention...

Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type (Unlocked)

 

The Nokia C3-01 is a quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and quad-band HSDPA 10.2 (850/900/1900/2100) device with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. That makes it perfect for overseas travel, as the C3-01 can hit high-speed data networks both here and in many other...

Slim and attractive. Aluminum housing looks and feels expensive. Great camera and music player. Low price for an unlocked phone

Earpiece could be louder. Despite its name, this isn't much of a "typing" phone without a QWERTY keyboard. No GPS

Nokia's star has faded in the U.S., but the company is serving up some real unlocked bargains like the Nokia C3-01, a slim and slick voice phone with an excellent camera, music player, and Web browser.

Nokia C3 (AT&T)

 

The four row QWERTY keyboard features large, silent keys. They're a bit stiff, though. And the spacebar just felt weird; each time I pressed it, I felt multiple clicks underneath the plastic. Dialing numbers also felt cramped, mainly because Nokia...

Amazing battery life. Attractive styling

Tinny voice quality. So-so QWERTY keyboard. No voice dialing. Terrible music playback. Buggy, poor quality camera

The Wal-Mart exclusive Nokia C3 is a cheap prepaid phone that looks sharp and lasts seemingly forever on a single charge, but it's far from Nokia's usual quality standards.

Nokia C3 Review

 

One of the features Nokia touts for its Cseries line is “messaging for the masses”. The Finnish company made a name for itself with the excellent thumbboard devices from the Eseries, providing a Symbian alternative for fans of the BlackBerry form...

Nokia C3

 

The Nokia C3 is a budget feature phone that classes up the "no-frills" tier with some fashion and features that will surely appeal to many. Available in gray, white or pink, the Nokia C3 features a 2.4-inch display generating 320 x 240 pixels, a strong...

Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type Review

 

Nokia is still serving S's with the Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type and there's definitely more to love compared to its close companion the Nokia X3-02 Touch and Type. We decided to make this review short and sweet because the two are relatively the same....

Review: Nokia C3-01 Touch & Type

 

Nokia brings the power of touch to its Series 40 platform in the C3. The C3 takes what's familiar about Nokia and sprinkles it with a dash of newness.
