Conclusion: The Nokia C3 Touch and Type boasts great build quality, a decent camera and is available on some very reasonable contracts. Obviously it’ll appeal to those who prefer texting on an numeric pad instead of a touchscreen, and in that sense it’s a great old-school phone. But the unresponsive touchscreen lets things down a bit; it’s not really ideal for surfing the web and and social networking.
Excerpt: Featuring a large full Qwerty keyboard and streamlined access to Facebook and Twitter, the Nokia C3 is aimed at the social network addicts, but how many likes and retweets will it be able to get? What we like The Nokia C3’s Qwerty keypad is really easy to type on, it has a rubbery finish that is both soft to the touch and provides a decent bit of grip.
Excerpt: The Nokia C3 is a budget feature phone that classes up the "no-frills" tier with some fashion and features that will surely appeal to many. Available in gray, white or pink, the Nokia C3 features a 2.4-inch display generating 320 x 240 pixels, a strong enough resolution to present crisp images that don't strain the eyes. Add in a 2MP camera with digital zoom, video record, MP3 player and FM radio, and you have a phone many will like and enjoy.
Conclusion: Apart from the camera, the other two mostly-used multimedia features in a mobile phone are music and video. On Nokia Touch and Type, you can play exciting music and video files of different formats. The music player of the device can play MP3/ WAV/ WMA/ eAAC+ while the video playback can stream MP4/ H.264/ H.263/ WMV files. Music lovers get additional benefit with the stereo FM radio with RDS.
Excerpt: The Nokia C3's stylish looks, taken from the professional Eseries range, belie its low price. The lightweight plastic cover is given a respectable matt finish, and the four-line QWERTY keyboard is superb for a handset at this price.
