Design and display

Polarised display

The Nokia 3’s 5-inch display is polarised, which means that you’ll be able to enjoy the same viewing experience outdoors, in bright sunlight, as you would inside. And with HD resolution, you’ll be able to see loads of detail in everything you do. 

Pure craftsmanship

The aluminium frame is precision built for a smooth finish and comfortable handheld experience. And strong Corning Gorilla Glass protects the screen, so you don’t have to worry about the odd bump or scrape. 


8-megapixels all round

The Nokia 3 has two equally powerful 8MP lenses – one on the front and another on the back. So whether you’re big in the selfie game, or you want to capture the perfect landscapes, both cameras will get the job done. 

Google Photos

Because the Nokia 3 runs on the world’s most popular mobile operating system, Android, you get to enjoy everything that comes with it – including Google Photos. Save an unlimited amount of photos in the cloud, and find anything by simply searching for whatever appears in your shots. 

Under the hood

Pure Android

Unlike other Android-powered smartphones, the new Nokia range gives you a Pure Android experience. This means that what you see on the screen is exactly what Google originally designed, providing a clean and simple way of enjoying your mobile. 

Impressive specs

The Nokia 3 impresses both inside and out. It has a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, backed up by 2GB RAM, and there’s a 2,650mAh battery to keep your powered up all day. You’ve also got the option to add a microSD card, to expand the phone’s 16GB memory by an additional 256GB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price it is super great Thank you for quad core 1.4 gh processor and 2 gb ram which let me use this phone very fast. Yes the picture quality and camera is not like high end phone which I don't expect. Really great phone in cheap price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Easy to use. I had mine for Xmas present. Started using it 2nd January after getting new SIM card. Keeps turning off. Did it the other night, thank goodness this happened after getting home as if I had broken down in my car I would not have been able to call for help. Not what I expect from Nokia or a new phone. Not reliable.
