Nokia 3: Budgeted Smart Phone with Long Lasting Battery

Nokia 3 is regarded as the first attempt by HMD Global, a company that owns Nokia brand name.

Key Specifications

5-inch IPS 720p display
8MP front-facing camera
8MP rear-facing camera
Mediatek CPU
16GB storage
Android 7.1.1
2,630 mAh battery

Sculpted Design

The Nokia 3comes in gorgeously crafted and carved polycarbonate back, a solid aluminum frame with detailed finishing. With a matte plastic back along with a metal edge. It is slightly round at the corners that make it easier for the users to grip it comfortably in one hand. During darkness, the users might face difficulty as capacitive buttons are placed below the display that lacks backlight. The device is similar in size to an iPhone 6/6S/7, and Moto G. It is lighter than those phones, due to immense use of plastic in its body.


Bright HD Display

Nokia 3 comes in 5 inches screen panel with 720p resolution coated with Corning Gorilla Glass for protection when required. Having Nokia 3 in hands is enough to say goodbye to squinting, as now you can enjoy your favorite videos, reading and using apps even while out in bright daylight thanks to the plastic-coated polarized HD display.

Internal Specs

There is a 16 GB internal memory built in for the users of Nokia 3 to view all the photos, install apps, play videos and games etc. Many users might find this space not sufficient to take care of all their extensive usage, therefore, a micro SD card support is provided that can extend the space up to 128 GB.

Presence of Sensors & 4G LTE Connectivity

Nokia 3 is fully supported by plenty of sensors to give you a perfect connectivity experience, including accelerometer, gyroscope and NFC for sharing. Users can facilitate from fast downloading and live streaming of their favorite apps, videos, and sports matches with 4G LTE connectivity. Uninterrupted music can be listened from this phone any time.


Considering the presence of low-resolution screen powered by a not power-hungry processor, battery life of Nokia 3 is the pride attribute. The 2630mAh battery installed isn’t actually that much different to that of quad-HD Moto Z2 Force. Generally speaking, battery life is pretty fine. The users will get three to four hours on-screen time, which is perfectly sufficient. In case, users try to use more than one app at a time, the battery power drops faster than usual, especially while using Bluetooth and GPS. In case the users are navigating Google Maps, or streaming Spotify with a pair of Bluetooth headphones, the battery will shed power faster.

There is no option of fast battery charging, so although there is not a huge battery life in terms of capacity, it will still take a while to recharge. The lack of USB-C support is not a big concern, although, hopefully, the next device will bid farewell to micro-USB.


Nokia 3 is available in pretty affordable for masses as it comes in 16,900 PKR. Average user can easily purchase it all over Pakistan.
