What does mobility look like?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times. You will use it to make phone calls, but also to surf and search for information on the internet.
A model that fits in your pocket: the C3 32 GB.Indeed, with its 5.99 inches, it is one of the smallest models currently available on the market.
Obviously with this size, it is not easy to surf the net.Forget the videos, too.All in all, perfect for a phone call.
In addition, it natively offers Wifi technology.This allows you to easily have a connection with a comfortable speed.There’s GPS on this phone.You know where you stand.Effective functionality almost everywhere.
Several Sims can be activated on this smartphone.In other words, having several subscriptions with the same device.That is, several operators at the same time.It can be interesting when you travel abroad.
Detail that is missing on this C3 32 GB is the absence of reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
It is a good idea to purchase an adaptable screen protector as a complement.A negative point, however, is the battery capacity.The 3040 mAh will barely be enough to last a day between calls, texts or games.As a precaution, you may have an external battery available nearby.
Nokia did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Too bad, it’s a very interesting feature today.
Interesting for the videos?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.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.Careful, that doesn’t mean any smartphone will do.
With a low reading comfort, the C3 32 GB is not designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.It’s hard to watch a video.And its screen resolution is low.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.
For the audio part, Nokia wanted to do well.This model has a 3.5mm jack input, and allows your phone to play good quality music.
With its OS version installed, the phone supports wireless Hi-Fi audio via Bluetooth.A technology that ensures quality sound.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
Is it suitable for games?
Games are performance consuming.The same applies to the ever-increasing number of applications that reduce battery capacity.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 32 GB is low in power.The Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) processor is weak and the graphics processing unit of a lower quality than we would have liked.The visual result is below other smartphones in this category.
As far as RAM is concerned, this model is lightweight to say the least.It’s 32 GB that have been installed, and that’s not much.But some of you will need more; that’s why Nokia has left a free slot for a memory card.
If you play a lot for several hours you will find that the battery is low.The endurance of this model is one of the weakest.Its 3040 mAH power will force you to recharge before the end of the day.
As with games, this smartphone is not intended to have many applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.It won’t be easy to read the downloaded documents.You’ll have to force it to read the documents clearly.
Finally, it should be noted that NFC (contactless payment) is not possible with this smartphone.
Analysis of Audio and Video functions
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.However, this is not the only criterion to be taken into account.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.This model thus has only one objective.
If you are very attached to the quality of the photos, you may be disappointed by this C3 32 GB.A definition in 8 Mp, which is necessarily less good than on top-of-the-range models.As far as selfies are concerned, this model is devoid of the technology that embellishes the photos .The editing function is out of date.This C3 32 GB is good for telephoning, but not for retouching images.
This model is one of the least space-consuming with only 32 GB.Limited space to store your holiday photos and movies.With this amount available, you will need to quickly sort through what you want to keep and delete the rest.
The C3 32 GB in conclusion
The design of this C3 32 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.
