Nokia C3

A cell phone with full QWERTY keyboard for only $120 price recommendation from the manufacturer – this is called a declaration of war. Nokia takes value-minded Networkers in the visor and brings a mobile messaging and social networking-oriented at the start with the series 40 model C3.

On the home screen can be just a few clicks set up Facebook and Twitter accounts in a Widget; Status messages remain always in sight, while your own tweets can be easily posted in the networks.

With 2.4 inch on the diagonal, the screen creates only a conditional, but overall enough overview. Top: Close to the hotspot designed in the classic BlackBerry look Nokia with the standards b or g wireless network logs themselves. Far from sparks the Nokia C3 in the four GSM bands of WiFi and transmits data packages fix via EDGE.

Short messages, e-mail messages or status messages: already after a few attacks can convince the four-row Schreibtastatur. The keys are rubberized and slightly domed in the Middle, so that you can already distinguish the single handle through mere touch. In low light conditions, the discreet button illumination ensures unique circumstances; in the middle of the QWERTY layout is greyed out and the keypad, so it stands out well.

Very good also the inevitable German buttons for the umlauts like ö, ä, ü – a large part of the much more expensive smartphones goes through double and triple occupancy of the keys for the vowels for this purpose.

For everyday business, the Nokia C3 despite comfortable full keyboard is not suitable as it without an Exchange connection for business E-Mail services and software for reading and editing Office documents.

Mediocre is the conclusion of our lab engineers: the endurance is good, the reception and acoustic values do not go beyond, however, above the average – what is bearable given the small price. In short, home users get a cheap and clean-machined S40 phone with great Writing desk with the Nokia C3.
