Time now has come which you can call the smartphone age, people now want to do much more than just calling from their mobile phones, they want these devices to be smart and full of entertainment to that they can help users to spend their time without getting bored when they are alone.

These days before buying everyone wants a smartphone which could satisfy their requirements, and their life style, the new age of smartphones are mostly touch screen devices which might be an enticing factor for youth to buy them but for old age people, it is the physical button on the phone which makes more sense on the other hand they like the touch screen once they use it. 

Nokia knows the mentality of mid or low price segment mobile phone buyers more than any one so they have come out some thing innovate called the as their touch and type smart phones, one of the best phones out of that series is Nokia c3 Touch & Type smartphone.


Nokia c3 Touch and Type looks smart, very nicely designed with a great build quality and light weight on the other hand it is full of features and you can enjoy both the touch screen and physical button on the phone to have an equal experience of both of these worlds.


The touch screen buttons, options are designed in a great way to suit both the thick and thin fingers and but it uses a a resistive and, therefore, less sensitive touchscreen.

At the top of the keypad there are two chrome finished button to pick or end the call, as far as the physical aspects of this phone are considered it has both a micro-USB port and a mini Nokia charging port.


The rear battery cover slides off to give you access to the SIM card slot and microSD card slot. The latter accepts cards of up to 32GB in size giving you plenty of room to store photos, videos and music tracks.


The back cover is metallic and phone is candy bar with round smooth corner which feels really good when you hold the phone in your hands, on the other hand it is equally strong too to bear any shocks if you drop it on the ground.

It features push email which you need to activate, and it has built in app for connecting to social media websites like facebook, twitter etc. It has pre installed opera mini browser as well to connect to internet and browse website easily from the phone with wifi connectivity option.

The Nokia C3-01 has a  5-megapixel (2592×1544 pixels) camera is also pretty decent too, featuring an LED flash, Extended depth of focus (EDOF), digital zoom up to 4x and Noise reduction. One of this you might miss is that you cannot see the great pictures captured by it on a small touch screen, you better transfer them to your PC to view them.


The video aspect of the device isn’t quite as impressive as the camera, but you’re still able to shoot at 20fps in QVGA quality.
