How cheap is too cheap? You’ll see


The Android phone sacrifices too much power in order to keep costs down.

The Android-based Nokia 3 is dirt-cheap, looks good and is comfortable to hold in one hand.

Its lack of power makes using the phone sluggish and frustrating.

The Nokia 3 sacrifices too much processing power to achieve its low price. You’re better off spending a bit more on the Motorola Moto G5.

Nokia 3, First Take: Affordable Android, but beware the trade-offs


Nokia has had its share of knockbacks in recent times, but the company has not given up on handsets. Its phone brand is now owned by HMD , a Finnish company, but you'd never know. Visit Nokia's website and its Phones, Health (courtesy of the Withings...

Nokia 3 review: the Redmi 4A should be your first choice


HMD brought Nokia-branded smartphones back to life in 2017, and it seems like the move has paid off already. Between the attractive price tags and stock ta

The Nokia 3 isn’t going to wow you in any particular area, but it does have pure Android and the promise of regular security updates. Me? I’d probably get the Redmi 4A instead, offering a 13MP main camera and double the storage (32GB). Or I’d save a...

HMD hasreleased several Nokia smartphones and the time has now come for us to present you with our assessment. Today, we give you our complete review of one of Nokia's recent devices: the Nokia 3 . How does it measure up to the competition? What's it...

Excellent finish and design ; Dual SIM & microSD ; Android Stock & quick updates ; Competitive price

For a great price, you can get an attractive design and nice build. HMD has produced a smartphone that is pleasing to the eye and to the touch. It’s an entry-level smartphone so don’t expect miracles: the performance, camera and battery leave much to...

Nokia 3 Review | Trusted Reviews


Nokia 3 review: The cheapest Android toting Nokia smartphone is well built and offers a clean Android experience with the Pixel launcher and Google Assistant. But does it offer enough to compete with the Moto G Play, Moto E and more?

Great software ; Budget price ; Battery life will get you through the day

Terrible performance ; Bad display ; Unreliable camera

Nokia 3 review: Three isn't the magic number

Quality design and build

Poor display quality ; Laggy performance ; Poor battery life with no fast charging

The Nokia 3 feels like the wrong first step for a new Nokia. We accept that there's a great demand for phones that are affordable, but with the likes of Motorola offering some great devices around this price or a fraction higher, it's hard to see how...

Nokia 3 review


Stand-out styling, but sub-power power

Looks more than it costs ; Near-standard Android UI ; Decent price

Not enough power ; Below-average battery ; No fingerprint sensor

A decent first effort for the ‘new’ Nokia, but good looks and an unmolested version of Android don't make up for a lacklustre performance

Nokia 3 review


A budget smartphone with an eye-catching design

Solid build quality and premium design ; Remarkably Low price ; Stock Android software works great

Disappointing performance may become frustrating ; Limited storage if you want to download lots ; Middling battery life may be an issue

It may look like one of the best cheap phones on the market but the Nokia 3 is style over substance, struggling with long load times and poor battery life.
