Nokia C3

WiNDiR has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

Nokia C3 is one of the best phones of good quality and cheap, with a very good and functional QWERTY keyboard. what I liked most of this phone is that it supports Whatsapp.
Another good thing about this phone is that it supports many themes and games.
If you dont want a big phone and you are looking for a Phone with the QWERTY keyboard this could be your choice, It is a decent phone.

Loved this phone

phonemaster1992 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

Got it in Aug 2011. Lasted me a year and was so dependable. Like a rock. Had a few fun games, internet worked good, quick phone in terms of loading messages, call quality was very good, and like all Nokias, it was durable as steel.

very good everyday phone

shadez10 has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

very cheap, has wifi, very good for texting and long battery life.
although camera is just 2mpx it takes decent pictures, stock brower is not so good but with opera mini browing the web could be smooth as the other competitiors... so this device really is a great for daily usage... like call and text...

greatest

candyusman has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

it is my first qwerty phone...its excellent and very high as compared to blacberry phone which suck....moreover its camera result is also fine...its qwerty keys are also very fit in size to type easily...i like that....looks like an E71 lite very cheap and fantastic in its era.
Best looking out of all of them.
Very teenager friendly BB.
Hope it’s gonna be nice and cheap.
This is one friekishly sleek device Nokia. Top Job.
Would be nice to see it trickle up on the higher end devices (maybe not the coloured ones like the pinkchrome C3 for the more conservative individual :

economic phone

Barna has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

its a really good low budget mobile with lots of features inbuilt.the phone is real addiction. for starters its should be the first choice. the ui is pretty easy.. it misses flash light and 3g operation. you can do social networking as well as business with this. you could say its a value for money phone. i

Nokia C3, no contacts sync via Wifi

Bernard has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Its a nice phone, browser, gtalk, updates everything nicely possible over wifi. Feels a bit slow but functional. The kids are happy with the games. Good functionality in the home window (customizeable).
However syncing your contacts is only possible over gprs.

Great!

jd2451 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

Truly great phone. Long battery time & talk time. The QWERTY keys are a little small but they do the job. Finding everything (i.e. settings, etc) took a good while but the phone is for the most part very user friendly. I have the pre-paid version so the wi-fi option was not included on the phone (would have been nice if it did).
