Nokia C3 Touch and Type Review
There isn't really anything major wrong with the Nokia C3 Touch and Type on any front and the phone's performance is no exception. When it comes to call quality when on the Nokia C3 Touch and Type, calls are clear, though max volume isn't as high as we would like it to be. On the other end, there were no issues with quality or volume. Coverage is also on the whole good.

As for speed, thanks to the relatively simple interface, there is no lag other than in the web browser. The touch screen is responsive and there is a degree of polish on the Nokia C3 Touch and Type that we only tend to see in Symbian^3 devices, which is refreshing.


To wrap up, we were impressed on the whole with the Nokia X3 Touch and Type and are more so by the Nokia C3 Touch and Type. It offers people who may not want smart phone features (or price) an extremely well built alternative with some good connectivity options. The inclusion of a touch screen adds some great functionality, and while the camera may lack auto-focus it should suffice for casual snaps. It makes for a great bridging experience for users who want to be eased into touch screen phones and comes highly recommended from us. If you feel the price is a touch steep, the X3 variant comes in at a lower cost offering similar functionality with the omission of a flash and stainless steel trimmings. Another alternative would be the Nokia C5, which has no touchscreen.

Your article is miscategorized. This is _not_ a Symbian phone but a Series 40 featurephone. Otherwise good review.
