Nokia was known for making some of the best performance-oriented phones in the world, and the new range of Nokia devices promises huge things for fans. Nokia 3, which was launched at a price of Rs. 9,499, is an entry-level model with decent features. Is Nokia 3 worth all the hype? Does it fare at par with the best-selling models from Lenovo and Mi? Below is a quick review for your help.

The basics

Nokia 3 comes with an aluminum frame and polycarbonate back. The overall design of the model is quite decent, and the 5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen performs well. It features an 8 MP autofocus camera on the front, as well as on the rear. It runs on the Mediatek MT6737 chipset, which is quite effective for the price range. With 2 GB RAM, the device has 16 GB internal memory, up to 128 GB. All the expected sensors, including gyro, proximity, compass, and accelerometer are included. The Li-Ion 2630 mAh battery is non-removable and offers decent performance. As far as the SIM slot is concerned, there are two. The phone offers 4G with VoLTE support. There are assured updates too, but it runs on stock Android Nougat out of the box.

The pros

First and foremost, Nokia 3 is a pretty decent device in more ways than one and the design is worth the range. Contrary to much-more-expensive Nokia 8 or even cheaper Nokia 2, this device doesn’t falter on design. If you are someone who loves Nokia and want to buy a smartphone within 10k, this is the one to go for. There were no lags or bloat in the software, which is one of the other highlights.

On the flip side

The camera of this device isn’t the best in this range. Redmi Note 4 or even a Lenovo K 5 performs better. Also, there’s no fingerprint scanner, which is almost a standard now. It may have a tough time competing with other options in the same price bracket, including Asus ZenFone.

Overall, Nokia 3 is designed for performance, and it doesn’t disappoint. If you expect more, you can always look up for Nokia 6. If you are looking for something cheaper, check Nokia 2. Nokia 2 price in India is ₹6580. Check online to get the best prices and offers. This might be the no-fuss smartphone you always needed, as long as you forgive a few minor missing features.
