Nokia 3 Features


5 inch Polarised HD Corning Gorilla Display

One great features of the Nokia is its 5 inch front display that has a HD resolution and comes protected with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass. Another top notch feature of the display is that it comes polarised, which gives it a sharp display to behold.

8 MP Camera On Both Front And Back

Nokia as a brand is well known for good camera quality in all its mobile devices. This phone will also have the same quality of good imaging as it is coming with an 8MP snapper on both the front and its rear panel.


Stock Operating System

Before now, people are expecting that when Nokia will make a comeback, their handset will still have a custom skin running on top the stock OS. However, the Nokia 3 comes with a pleasant surprise, because it is running on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.


Poor Battery

One of the cons of this device is its battery, which is just merely 2650mAh. While the battery might look small on its rating, since it is coming from Nokia, it might eventually have a long lasting capacity.

Plastic Body

This is one big drawback in the Nokia 3, which might make buyers to have a second thought. While the chassis of the device is aluminum, the rear panel is just a flimsy plastic panel.
