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.

Nokia 3 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value smart phone I bought the Nokia 3 on the 1st of June 2018 on the 24 hour test I give all my smart phones it did quite well the battery lasted for about 10 hours 3-4 hours of that was surfing on line or downloading apps During my test time I found the phone to be quite quick and responsive when using apps A bit of advice for people who complain about lack of customisation you can install something like nova launcher in order to make it easier and give you more options. On the down side the boot up is a little slow and the battery could be a bit bigger like 2800 mAh So if you are not a power user or gamer I can highly recommend this phone. And I am quite sure you will like the premium quality build for budget price smart phone.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from notification light fault? Happy enough as only wanted phone for calls and texts. Doesn't appear to have any notification light for texts or missed calls. I thought it was the simplicity of the model.. now I wonder if its just broken. Is this phone supposed to have an indicator light that I can turn on or do I need a repair?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great replacement for my Nokia windows phone I bought this phone a few weeks ago to replace my Nokie 625 windows phone (which microsoft will no longer support!!) I am really pleased with it. The main problems initially were persistent unwanted ads. I dealt with this buy buying Adguard which works very well. Security (which I rate as very important although this never seems to be mentioned in the adverts) and junk removal are ongoing and keep the phone working smoothly. The other thing to watch is the battery because of all the activity in the background. So I just turn on flight mode, to stop this, and off when I need up to date information. Because I am pay as you go I don't want to use my data for going on line but rely on my wifi. Overall I find this an excellent phone particularly for the price. Well done Nokia and welcome back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE I bought the phone because I think it looks good... sleek and polished, but since day one the phone has been nothing but trouble. Could not swipe up (or down) to accept (or decline) an incoming call... split screen mode locks up the phone and cannot access video files on the SD card. Sent away for repair, and it returned with a no fault found letter, yet the fault recurred instantly. The customer service is a joke... took four attempts to send the phone in for repair, and then they did nothing with it. I wish I could afford to throw it out of the window, and this coming from a former total Nokia lover... had the 3310, the N76, Express Music 5580, the N8... but never again.
