Nokia has cleverly designed the C3 to look and feel like a device from the business-friendly Eseries, altering the interface of the Series 40 platform. - Daniel P., PhoneArena

Reviews (6/10 Avg. rating)

Very small keys, not practical for typing in numbers

from Digital Versus (over 3 years ago)

Packing a pro handset with consumer functions isn't enough to make a successful mobile. The original model wasn't intended for this kind of use and it shows. With no 3G and a small, low-def screen, the Nokia C3 just isn't cut out for surfing the web or social networking.

  4/10

The Nokia C3 is a well-targeted phone, made predominantly for affordable messaging and social network updates on the go

from PhoneArena (over 3 years ago)

Moreover, Nokia has cleverly designed the C3 to look and feel like a device from the business-friendly Eseries, altering the interface of the Series 40 platform. If only it had managed to cram a bit better optics for the camera, we'd go so far as to say Nokia will sell a boatload of the C3. What will... More

Excellent battery, high quality music sound and an excellent 2.4-inches display

The Nokia C3 offers a great keyboard and a decent range of social-networking apps

from CNET (over 4 years ago)

The Nokia C3 certainly has its strengths. Its keyboard is excellent, it has a good range of social-networking features and its battery life isn't bad. But it's let down by its dated operating system and lack of 3G support.

Slim, solid messenger, a bit quirky

(over 3 years ago)

Trying this C3 from Best Buy as my first qwerty phone for easier texting. At first glance it's a sexy phone with the shiny front face and matte back plate, feels like a quality peice in your hand. The keyboard is nice too, solid feeling buttons. Nicer than most plastic phones I've been trying... More
