Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type review

 

A low cost handset from Nokia that brings touch to S40 but ultimately disappoints

Great build ; Good number pad ; Customisable Home screen ; Second customisable shortcuts screen

Processor is challenged at times ; No GPS ; Fiddly to use ; Twitter and Facebook integration is poor ; Camera is lacklustre

The Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type is a candybar handset with a small screen and a simple numeric keypad. Like its near-namesake the BlackBerry-alike C3-00, the C3-01 Touch and Type is designed to be a low cost, easy to use messaging fan's handset.

Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type

 

Nokia's C3-01 Touch and Type adds a touchscreen to the traditional candybar handset design.

Classy design ; Easy to use features ; Good battery life

Slow Nokia web browser ; Poor headphones ; Resistive touchscreen

When scrolling through longer lists it doesn’t work quite as well, as you have to consciously press a bit harder on the display rather than perform the light, capacitive screen grazing action. One minor annoyance is that pressing on the screen causes...

Nokia - C3-01 Touch and Type

 

Nokia's C3-01 Touch and Type is an example of Nokia sticking to its bread and butter of making simple mobile phones at a relatively low cost that do their job well. Solid and stylish The ...

The Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type stands up well enough on its own - but sit it next to similarly priced Android handsets with more features, and it loses most of its appeal.

Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type

 

With all the fuss surrounding the Nokia C7 and E7, the adorable C3-01 Touch and Type has gone somewhat unnoticed. As Nokia's second handset to feature a touchscreen alongside a physical keypad, they have stepped things up a notch since the X3 Touch and...

With the C3-01, Nokia have finally proved why "touch and type" is a big deal. It may not be the most feature packed handset on the market, but you're certainly getting a lot for your money.

Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type review

 

We review the Nokia C3-01 Touch and Type, a dual-input smartphone that's powered by Symbian's Series 40 6th Edition operating system

Looks great, light weight, good camera, lots of storage, easy to use, robust, brilliant touchscreen and dual keypad input method, very affordable price tag

Low resolution display, lots of annoying S40-type notifications, very little built-in storage

The Nokia C3-01 is a brillent feature phone featuring a great camera, lots of expandable storage, a powerful camera and as an added bonus it looks and feels great
