An entry level budget phone with eye catching design, Nokia 3 can be said to one of those phones that exemplifies Nokia’s long-term unwritten philosophy of “greatest good, for the greatest number of people”.

Phones are not made to reach the moon, and Nokia knows that pretty well.

It may not turn many heads, but the Nokia 3 has a solid spec sheet and the brand will be hoping that the Nokia name will resonate with those looking for low-cost, reliable phones.

The compact design of the phone is more than a relief! The rounded corners and sides produce a design that’s reminiscent of Nokia’s (then Microsoft’s) Lumia range of Windows Phones handsets, and coupled with a 143.4×71.4×8.48 mm frame, it results in a pleasantly styled device.

Unlike the Nokia 6 and Nokia 5, the Nokia 3 has ditched the metal build for a polycarbonate body. It still feels good though, and has a durable finish you’d expect from a budget device. There is anodised aluminium inside to add a hint of rigidity, too, and it certainly feels it could take a beating before it gets damaged.

There’s a bright 5 inch HD screen up front and the polarized IPS display gives crisp, clear images and good visibility. There’s a resolution of (1280×720 pixels), and it’s coated in Gorilla Glass for added protection. This means that not only can the phone go everywhere with you, but it can also finally fit where it was supposed to – in your pocket!

Also, unlike other tank size phones, you can use it with one hand.

Providing the grunt is a MediaTek quad-core processor, 2 GB RAM – the absolute least you need in an Android phone – and there’s 16 GB of storage. Some phones at this price stick with 8 GB, so it’s good of Nokia to add a bit more storage. There’s a microSD slot for expanding memory further, per your need.

Other nice additions are NFC – for mobile payments – Wi-Fi a/b/g/n along with an ambient light sensor. Each of these can often be left out when the price is low, but Nokia lives up to it’s aforementioned philosophy.

The front camera is a 8 megapixel, which is just like the 8 megapixel around the back – an eyecatcher which says “less is more”.
It also has 1.12 µm pixel size, geo-tagging and touch focus

The phone runs on a stripped down Android Nougat, just like its compatriots. HMD (who now make the Nokia phones) said it went for a pure version of Android in order to keep the experience clean and simple and to make it easier to keep up with Google’s monthly security updates.
In fact, “Pure Android” is one of the taglines of HMD’s Android lineup, along with the “obsession” with user experience and a leadership in product design.

As for power skeptics, the phone runs on a non-removable Li-Ion 2,650 mAh battery, which is more than enough-given the small size of the screen. One won’t need to carry powerbanks every where for this phone!

As for other miscellaneous details, the phone comes in different colours of Silver White, Matte Black, Tempered Blue and Copper White – more than enough options to suit the choosiest of the customers.

Do we love this phone – yes! And not just because Nokia’s back!
