Specification Nokia 3
But then, on paper, what is this Nokia 3, the most affordable phone of the brand currently. Behind the 5-inch IPS, a display that displays an HD definition (1280 x 720 px) is a MediaTek MT6737 chip, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. On the back, there is a photo module of 8 Mpx and in front another, of the same resolution, deals with self-portraits. The mobile can accommodate two SIM cards and a microSD card. Connectivity side we find a micro-USB port, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 4G with the bands 3 (1800 MHz), 7 (2600 MHz), 20 (800 MHz) and 28 (700 MHz). Everything runs on Android 7.0 and is powered by a battery of 2630 mAh.
If there is one thing for which the Nokia of the big days was universally recognized, it is for the quality of manufacture of its mobiles. So much so that the unbreakable 3310 has become a true legend. It is therefore unlikely that HMD has allocated much of its resources to the design of the external appearance of the mobile, and it shows: the 3 does not look like an entrance phone range, sold 160 €. Admittedly, the back is plastic, but we can not speak of a cheap hull. The chosen material is solid and the slightly polished side gives it a really elegant and refined appearance. The minimalist approach to design is successful. In addition, the serious side is reinforced by metal slices that give a certain stature to the mobile once in hand.
The front is for its part rather nicely drawn also, except for the edges of screens lower and upper a little too wide. This is partly due to the choice of Nokia to adopt sensitive buttons rather than software. In addition, the very slightly curved glass marries well the rounded design of the whole. In short, it is a success in terms of design and construction.

We still regret that Nokia did not find it useful to incorporate a fingerprint reader to his mobile, even though Gigaset proved that it was possible on a mobile, certainly less well finished, but less than 150 €. The USB Type-C would also have been a wise choice for a phone sold mid-2017, also entry-level.
If HMD / Nokia has really worked on design and construction, we can not say the same thing about the screen. From the first contact, the eyes a little exercised can detect that something is wrong on the side of colorimetry. And for good reason, the Nokia 3 arrives with a screen whose temperature is blocked at 8,868 Kelvin, far from the standard value of 6,500 K, while the delta E points to 5.1. Question reproduction of colors so we are far enough from a natural rendering. And since no color management tool or screen profiles are to declare, you must learn to deal with a screen with slightly distorted colorimetry.
On the other hand, if we except the minimum brightness too high (19 cd / m²) which may displease the nocturnal mobile phone, the Nokia 3 comes out pretty well question readability. The contrast is set at 1750: 1, which is a good rate for IPS, while the maximum brightness is 530 cd / m². Reflectance, for its part, is relatively contained, since it caps at 12%.
Even in use, the touch delay of 123 ms and the persistence of 13 ms will not interfere so much most users. Only the low resolution of 294 pixels per inch will disturb some. Nokia has gone to the economy on this last point by adopting the minimum screen definition for 5 inches.
The Nokia 3 is clearly not a lightning war. It is Mediatek MT6737 SoC with 4 cores clocked at 1.4 GHz, as well as its 2 GB of RAM ensure the minimum acceptable in terms of responsiveness. We often feel a few latencies when opening apps a little greedy or when we switch from one task to another.
Heat Test Nokia 3
Question heats, the Nokia 3 is doing pretty well. Whether after 10 minutes of intense solicitation of the CPU / GPU couple or after strafing and capturing 10 minutes of video, the mobile does not exceed 35 ° C on the surface, which never makes it really painful to hold or use.
