This company was banned for making any product for few years. There is a maintenance cost associated with these service centers. I don't think there would be any mobile care remaining that function well.
EDIT - I was pleasantly surprised to know there are still over 300 Nokia priority stores all over India. Wow!!! I take back my statement.
AnonD-656673, 01 Jul 2017This thing is priced at 9.5k INR in India!!Better buy Redmi 4 at that price or note 4 for 2k more. I love Xiaomi, they give solid phones at solid price.

And a cheap lenovo A806 for android stuff.. I just can't bring myself to use any other camera until i find one that is able to surpass the 808.. I have considered the latest flagships including the 950 but still very far from 808 image quality.. Maybe Nokia 9 will beat the 808.. or I'll probably have to wait until Nokia 12 LOL
MT6737, 2GB of RAM and crappy camera? Just get yourself Oukitel U7 Plus for around 70 bucks at most and you will get perhaps not that great built quality (precision of that removable back is really questionable) but smooth interface (yes, if you connect to WiFi after few hours and your email client is loading mails and Google Play is updating you will experience lag) but other than that its smooth. And if you want more performance, better camera, better batery and metal built, get Oukitel K6000 Plus for 170 bucks...
Nokia 3 for its price is just gimmick...
Nokia said they are pushing good build quality and software support, they never actually promised remarkable chipsets.

BTW, i am still using 950Xl and it beats every nowadays phone in camera department. Yes, my GF has whatever latest Samsung Android abomination it is. S8?

As a nokia fan i am saying this ... unfortunately
This phone gets beaten by galaxy J3 2017
-- J3 has better cameras plus selfie flash
--- Extraordinary battery life ( due to 14nm soc expect 90h+ rating even with 2400mah battery eg A3 2017 )
---- higher antutu score 35k vs 28k for Nokia 3.. ( though since it uses touchwiz this is more or less a tie source - YouTube )
---- Nokia 3 is definitely more tougher and sturdy , j3 also looks good in metal body ESP in black colour
After sale services and brand let's consider it a tie
The only thing going for Nokia 3 is it will be updated to 8 fast and for those that love stock ui .. j3 may never get updated
Still worth it to get j3 2017..
Samsung is smart they pushed the launch of j3 to July instead of august earlier because of Nokia 3
nokiapoweruser report nokia 3 has great battery life...
i know its a nokia site
but now I'm confused
gsm also see good battery for video playback and other stuff...
Galaxy Note 2 category level from 2012, that is not enough in middle of 2017
This review makes me a little worried for the Nokia 5 and 6. I'm seriously considering the Nokia 5 but might wait until GSM have done their review. Otherwise I might wait for the Samsung J5 2017 (whenever that will launch!). The Moto G5 was meant to be the main contender but the design is a big let down.
Phones are not for games. You can play on xbox or a pc not on a phone.
This is a buget phone wich will probably go free with an operator contract
Great build, good background
Go buy xiaomi and good luck with service repairs

PS: don't need to be caps locked, it's just showed you are like paid commenter.

And we don't start with apps flame war, do we? All i need are there.
AnonD-143546, 01 Jul 2017"Value is the name of the game nowadays and it's really tough to keep up with the likes of Mot... moreXiaomi has great software updates and has HUGE line-up of devices with FANTASTIC price/performance value (bang for buck), although their OS developer are quite slow on releasing OS upgrade.
Meizu has become one of alternatives for "flagship killer" Chinese brand, and now focused more on low-to-mid-range device, by releasing M and M note series.
Similar to Xiaomi, their Flyme OS software updates are also good, but I could not tell how good it is, compared to MIUI, as I never had Meizu's device.
So, the ONLY valid point in ur argument is the "after sales" support, which WILL ALWAYS be the cons of MOST Chinese brands, BUT u also meed to remember that
"AT THIS PRICE POINT, IF U COULD GET A DEVICE WITH GREAT SPECS, U HAVE TO ACCEPT THE "ALMOST NON-EXISTENCE" AFTER SALES SUPPORT, AS THAT'S WHERE THEY CUT CORNER" (well, I owned Mi Max for a year and never had ANY HARDWARE problem, though)
So, which one do u chose:
-) Devices with good to great specs, good software support, but limited after sales, OR
-) Devices with crap to mediocre specs with bottleneck issue, "promised" software support, but better "promised" after sales?
I, for one, has choose & recommended the "former" several times, with no issue
Recent Nokia 3 user, 01 Jul 2017Thank you for the review, but I must say the benchmark commentary could be more helpful. You w... moreWhat a FAILED logic...
IF all u ever do with Android smartphone are calling and texting, without the need for several apps to run on the background OR gaming a game with graphic-intense gaphics,
WHAT U NEED IS NOKIA 3310 (2017), not Android smartphone, DUDE...
Believe it or not, u are not only use Android for social media which runs on background.
at the same time, u might also run other apps, like music player, PDF reader, office suite, and so on.
"Does everyone need more than couple of apps running in the background?" Yes, Android device can do multitasking since ICS, and people subconsciously used it ALL the time
(look at 'setting' > 'apps' > 'running')
"Does everyone play games on their phones?" Yes, believe it or not, ALL people who buy Android phone have game(s) installed in their device, and play it occasionally.
People who don't play game, only for calling & texting, avoiding smartphone, cause the battery endurance of smartphone are sucks compared to FEATURE PHONES.
"In my opinion with rational use many people can be too"
"rational use" are an ABSTRACT thing, as u can't expect EVERYONE to have the same value of "rational" as you.
For me, "rational use" are when my Android phone capable of handling multitasking with ease, capable of running graphic-intense games, and have big battery as well as long standby time, even after heavy use (Mi Max, for example).
ALL Nokia current line-up, however, cannot do ALL of this, especially 3, the TRUE successor of Nokia X, XL, and X2, the trio POS
