The Nokia 3, the most affordable of the three new Nokia-branded Android smartphones, was launched in India last month. It is the first smartphone with the Nokia name to hit the Indian market in a long time, but it's worth pointing out that it hasn't been manufactured by Nokia itself. The company that once dominated global smartphone sales is getting a second shot at the mobile business thanks to a brand licensing agreement with HMD Global, a Helsinki-based company run largely by former Nokia and Microsoft employees. As per the deal announced last year, HMD Global has an exclusive global license to create and sell Nokia-branded phones for 10 years. The company has been betting heavily on the Nokia brand's power, and fans have been looking forward to the devices which are now finally here.

Nokia 3 Summary

The Nokia 3 is the first Android smartphone from Nokia, now licensed by HMD Global. Its design stands out in the current crop of budget smartphones, and it is sturdy and comfortable enough for regular use. The Nokia 3 has good enough specifications for its price, but overall performance is average at best. Battery life isn't great, and the cameras struggle in low light. If you're looking for a sub-Rs. 10,000 device then the Nokia 3 will fit your pocket, but you should also consider other options.

  • Beast For Professionals
    Rishabh Balyan (Jun 26, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I bought this phone for my dad, but after using it for 3 days, i asked him to buy another phone, because this phone is superb. I have used samsung htc moto every phone but i couldn't found the better display,camera,built quality,performance which is given by nokia and it is next to unreachable by other companies.This phone can do all the necessary things most perfectly then others, but if you go for unnecessary stuff, then its good to go for chinese product. I have never seen a person with a chinese phone, for more than 2 years, but nokia guarantee you this phone will be same for next 5 years atleast. Nokia never degrade....!!
