Thank you for the review, but I must say the benchmark commentary could be more helpful. You wrote the performance is on the level "your grandma could use". The author should see beyond his way of using tech and notice that there are people who can find this device to perform well enough. Does everyone need more than couple of apps running in the background? Does everyone play games on their phones? After a week of using this phone I must say I'm satisfied with it. In my opinion with rational use many people can be too.
It's very difficult to find a well done review these days. Instead of showing how much device lack to the top reviewers should describe what kind of user could find a particular device useful.
Camera Quality Good...Separate Memory SD Card Slot.. 10 hrs Browsing Time, 8:30hrs Video Is Very Good......Hardware Quality Good..... Display Looks Very Good And 2.8 Ratio In Sunlight Not Bad (Check Other Phones Ratio U Will Understand).....Software UI Custom Rom ( Very Smooth) Like U Feels In Moto Phones...... Performance Good For Normal Users...... Audio Good.... Good Build Quality Premium Feel...... If Ur A Normal User Go For Nokia Otherwise Many Chinese Out There Redmi Note 4, Lenovo K6 Power Etc :)
I am purely depending on Nokia brand, non others are not durable, like quality, battery life, sound etc., I was waiting long for relaunch Nokia. I first brought New 3310 and Nokia 3 continuously, best wishes to Nokia to shine better and long last........
The 3, is one thing. The 5, has a very different and beautiful smooth edge to the body. I like it. Great test phones.
Nokia 6, super tough.
For me I am looking to the flagship.
Nokia 9 is coming with the exclusive Nokia OZO Audio enabled. Significantly different from the normal phone audio. https://ozo.nokia.com/eu/nokia-ozo-audio
Solid. New horizon. Bring it on.
AnonD-287672, 30 Jun 2017Crappy phone. How blind could one be to buy this POS?You will be surprised at how blind the nokia fanboys can be.
Based this phone, the true reason that makes NOKIA down isnt Windows Mobile OS, but they pricing...
And my brother blindly recommend it to everyone without even seeing it. Feel really sad for the people he recommended to. C'mon Nokia you can do better than this. Lumia 520 was the one of the best budget phones back in the day
Nokia may had a good move in its marketing schemes, but in my opinion, Nokia should had focused on producing flagship phones only just like what OnePlus and Apple are doing.
Even this generations budget phones manage 1080p video, not sure what they was trying to achieve by using such a mediocre soc, they're gonna lose money on this as for the price point you can get better
Nokia in the past was the best mobile phone manufacturer in the world.
After not having adapted to the new times and being absorbed by Microsoft, that has finished destroying it, tries to return again to the market with the name only of Nokia, because its phones offer nothing new: They are simply copies of marks like Meizu, Huawei, Oppo, Xiaomi, etc. But also poorly manufactured and with very poor performance.
Also, poor stock and distribution as they are late to the market.
It is a real disappointment, something I already imagined and this Nokia 3 is the best evidence.
Nothing has to do neither Nokia 5, nor 6 nor 9.
I repeat: This is NOT the Nokia I knew, it is an Asian product of low cost and EVIL MADE.
And to launch such phones, it's better not to go out and destroy the good reputation that Nokia had got in the past.
paco2x, 30 Jun 2017Well... i said about those HMD Nokia phones are nothing like the Nokia of yesterday, it's just... moreThe plan isn't bad.. all other brands you mentioned have 1 major shortcoming I.e after sale services.. Samsung galaxy j series phones aren't significantly better spec wise but they are most successful .. and you get the trust dependability after sale service ..
The plan was good even with these specs.. but execution/real world is disappointing.. they didn't need to offer killer specs.. just the get the the things they promised/advertised right...
Build quality + good camera + smooth OS experience for day to day tasks + good battery life and focus on after sale service and fast OS updates
Is a potentially great winnig combination... for brand like Nokia
Unfortunately they only got. Build quality right and nothing else.. hence the disappointment...
$150 for a brick.(if you know what i mean)
Better stole one from the street lol.
Nokia 9 where are you?
That's what happens when you use an entry level Mediatek chipset
Well... i said about those HMD Nokia phones are nothing like the Nokia of yesterday, it's just another generic android phone and some fanboys were quite aggressive with my opinion... but this review confirm my point. Brands like Motorola, Xiaomi and others are more attractive and offers more features for the same price. You can't rely too much on nostalgia to sell, sometimes works like the NES mini but for ultra competitive market like smartphones, it won't work.
I was waiting to see what came of this Nokia 3, and after reading the review, it's clear to me now that the Moto E4 is the better deal in this case.
