Nokia 3 (2017) 16GB, Copper White/Black - £85, + £10 Top Up = £95 Deliered + Free C&C @Vodafone

Found 29th Sep 2017
Been watching the New Nokia Android phones recently and seeing as Samsung finally took back My Note 7 for a full refund this week I was forced to get a back up phone whilst I await the iPhone X to drop!

This Phone's recently released in the UK over the last month & It's one of the best Budget Smartphones out at the moment. Specs below. Most other places have It listed for £130 + The mandatory £10 Top Up, It's running Android 7.0 Nougat & Runs a smooth bloatware free UI.

5.0"
720x1280 pixels
8MP with Flash
720p
2GB RAM
MT6737
2630mAh, Li-Ion

Feels like a premium enough phone for the cost. It's got a metal/aluminium surrounding on the sides & plastic Matte back & Gorilla glass IPS Display screen which is really quite bright. Sound quality is very good for this phone too. Only thing that lets it down is that there is no finger print reader, & the RAM could be faster. But for the cost corners have to be made for sure.

Hoping It won't get too chilly in here! But I'm very pleased with my purchase despite having to pay the Silly BVB Top Up that they force even their Contract SIMO Customers to Purchase

Don't be fooled by the name 'Nokia' it's made by HMD Global, glory days of this brand are long gone. Nokia Corporation is not directly involved.

Ha ha. Well I own one. Slow load time on what exactly? It runs a stock version of the latest android. So fat free. Poor battery life. Compared to? Has the same run time as my S6. Stop trusting everything you read on the internet kids.

Of course spec is everything aye guys. Pop the iPhone spec up. Is that slow with poor battery life. Run a bloated OS, no hardware will save the day.

This also gets Oreo in 2017

It would be Indeed, But you can get It Unlocked via their website as a PAYG Customer with the SIM Card you purchased with it. Or use It for a month with your Vodafone Contract & Then you can apply to Unlock It for Free If I'm not mistaken? Not sure if eBay have their Cheap 99p Unlock Codes going yet but worth a look for sure! There's no Voda Branding in the menu's or bloatware etc so It's a good one to unlock.

Every cheap Motorola is far better than this.
how fast is the ram if it could be faster? its prob ddr3, ddr4 would be nice but not sure if you can get that at this price point?
Nah thanks, I'll give it a miss OP and so should you
Pretty terrible phone actually, you can get a Redmi Note 4 for 20 quid on top.
Chinese phones smash the crap out of this phone. Not all Chinese phones are good, but there's plenty that are good. This company are just cashing in on the Nokia name whilst they still can.

£95 for those specs is pretty poor. Could easily get a full HD screen.

Hate to disagree with you all but the majority who have voted hot on the deal disagree with your comments. Battery life is average for a phone of this value it'll easy get me through a days use which is the same life expectancy as an iPhone or even the latest Note 8. I needed
a phone urgently simply for What's App and this fit the bill perfectly.

£30 of the £85 is just paying for the name.
Very bad price compated with spec... Look at xiaomi phones for same price

That spec should be more like £45.

That spec should be more like £45.

In theory the spec is ok. Its the battery that let's it down.

Had it been a 3000mAh, I'd have ordered it.


Same issue with the Nokia 5....the battery doesn't cope with the specs.

The prices are great for the Nokia range...fit better batteries!!!

It is "OK", I agree. I didn't say it was bad. The resolution, RAM, CPU are all acceptable as a good entry level, possibly low-end mid-level phone. £85 is not a good price for this however, good deals in the£80-100 range offer much better specs.

To repeat what I said on another post, HMD is almost entirely consisted of ex-Nokia employees laid off by Microsoft. It's most definitely Nokia.

Hahaha. There are some serious anti HMD Nokia fanboy trolls on HUKD. At least post something useful, or substantiate your claims.
Can't understand why people are giving this phone such a hard time.Spec wise it's pretty decent and build quitters spot on.Screen is also very good and having stock android marks it a steal.I have used one and find it fine for the price just a shame Nokia was destroyed by Microsoft and windows.I remember all the fan boys in here saying windows is a breath of fresh air blah blah blah.Me personally I said it was a bad move and would die eventually due to people realising how rubbish it was and now look what's happened.Well done Nokia for going to android and for anyone thinking about this little phone go buy it's spot on.

At last someone who's used one and speaks sense not rubbish and relies on a comparison to an iPhone or note 8
Got it in black, very pleased with it. Feels quality in the hand
Yes Xiaomi 4x all the way over this . Same price , more ram , more storage and bloody awesome battery life.

Techradar reviews are about as impartial and fair as North Korean state media and about as technically astute as your *average* iPhone owner.

Seems decent value if you want a UK bought phone with a warranty (i.e. not gearbest or Ali express bought) and want updates.
