C3 16 GB for mobility?
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.
That C3 16 GB looks really small.In fact, it’s one of the smallest (5.99 inches) compared to other smartphones.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Don’t imagine watching a movie in good conditions either.It’s a model made for telephoning, mainly.
Also note that wifi will be available to accompany you.This means that the connection will be easier during your internet browsing.This smartphone comes with GPS.Your travels will be facilitated, even abroad.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
Some smartphones can hide more than one.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.And therefore several operators on this model.This will be convenient for those who travel regularly.
It is important to note that this model does not include reinforced glass.No protection against scratches or shocks that can occur during the lifetime of all smartphones.It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.There is only 3040 mAh, which is low for normal use.This requires organization and always having a back-up charger available.
In conclusion on battery charging, Nokia has not changed anything compared to previous models, which means no fast charge.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
A device for watching movies and listening to music?
Smartphones have become the new televisions.It’s a device that is always at hand.The same goes for listening to music.Access to the network allows you to watch a video stream whenever you feel like it.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.An 5.99 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.The resolution is low: 720 x 1440.However, you can use it to listen to your music playlist.
The screen of this model has been switched to LCD IPS (In-Plane Switching).That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
Nokia sought to improve the audio experience.You have an input for the 3.5mm plug of your headphones.
Using its Bluetooth functionality, you can pair your phone with all the devices in your home (speakers, TV…).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.
The right choice to play online?
For games, you need performance.Games, but also applications require batteries.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience 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.Which makes it look just passable.
A smartphone with RAM, but the bare minimum.This model has 16 GB, which is low.Knowing that some users need more space, Nokia has provided a free space for an extension.
Please note that in intensive use, the battery may not hold.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.With a power of 3040 mAH, it will need to be recharged during the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.A below-average configuration with a reduced screen size of 5.99 inches.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.
And to finish on the application part, we note that the payment function via telephone (the NFC), is not available here.
Efficiency for audio and video
People have been using smartphones for some time now… to take pictures.They have millions of pixels that capture details perfectly.The ability to stabilize at the time of shooting or the Burst mode are also important points.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Generally speaking, Nokia has developed a recognized know-how for smartphones.
The company has done the bare minimum in this case.In fact, there is only one camera on this phone.
The screen resolution of this C3 16 GB is among the lowest on the market.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.This C3 16 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 16 GB.Not enough to back up all your video files or music.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
The C3 16 GB in conclusion
Our analysis showed that this C3 16 GB wasn’t made for all purposes.It can be a temporary choice or a temporary fix.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
