The C3 16 GB adapted for internet use and travel ?
The issue of mobility is important when it comes to a smartphone.You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
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.
It will be more difficult to click on this small area.Watching movies will be less enjoyable.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
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.No more need for a map to get around a city or a country.Unless you’re in the middle of the desert.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.That is, several operators at the same time.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
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.
Autonomy is one of the worst features on this model.The 3040 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.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.Convenient to use, it would have made it possible to recharge quickly.
The right choice for watching movies?
The use of the telephone now exceeds that of television.It’s become a handy tool.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.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.But not all phones are suitable for this purpose.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.He’s at the bottom of our ranking.An 5.99 -inch screen with overly vivid colors.And its screen resolution is low.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
The on-board technology at the display level is the LCD IPS.That is to say that it offers very good colours and very wide viewing angles.
On the audio side, Nokia wanted to do it right.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
Bluetooth technology will allow you to listen to music with connected devices.The result is very pleasant to the ear.
And, on the nice but missing functionality side, we have the stereo speakers; the mono sound is shallower.
The right choice to play online?
Games are performance consuming.Batteries are put to the test every day due to the use of mobile internet and applications.On 3D games, the right processor and quality graphics chip ensure smooth rendering.In short, technology and the latest generation of components provide better playability.
Our tests put this C3 16 GB at the bottom of the list in terms of power.The components are starting to date (Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) processor), and the quality is less good.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
In terms of storage memory, it’s in the worst.This phone only defaults to 16 GB; that’s probably fair.And because Nokia predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Forget the long video game sessions on this model.Unfortunately in the case of this model, it is one of the worst.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.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.That’s gonna make it harder to read.The images are of lower quality, they can sometimes pixelize, and give a final rendering that is painful for the eyes.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
Efficiency for audio and video
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.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.Being able to retouch the obtained photos is appreciated.Nokia has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
Little progress has been made by Nokia.This model thus has only one objective.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.With a definition of only 8 Mp, you will have lower quality images.You will limit selfies with this model, because of the poor quality of the rendering.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 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.
Finally, the C3 16 GB…
Following our tests, we see that this C3 16 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.
