Nokia 3 PAYG locked to o2, £75 online and instore at o2

Found 16th Apr
Stock Android with 16GB ROM and 2GB RAM, not a bad price for the specs.Not the best phone in the world but then again, you get what you pay for and given this is around the £90 mark in other places . . . . The spiel should be in the link

You can buy the phone online without having to buy a top-up voucher, in-store may be different. Ordering online before midnight Sunday to Thursday means next working day delivery. No doubt cashback is available through TCB and quidco, unable to check as I shouldn't be looking at phones right about now

Decent price for 2gb handset which will get updates, and supports WiFi calling
Hot! Seems like a decent spec

Quick search on Google suggests a few freebies (obviously at your own risk) other than that, o2 charge £15 AFTER you've had the handset 12 months you could always look on ebay or try a local market. As it stands, the handset will accept o2, GiffGaff and Tesco SIMs
Does this have Android Oreo 8 yet?

I know its coming & possible still in Beta stage

This is the good thing with Nokia handsets you will get Android updates unlike Huawei Honor etc which will be stuck on whatever you get the phone with
Not a bad phone, great price. It is a decent competition for the Moto E / G in some ways, but keep in mind that despite the 2GB of RAM, the CPU is really slow. So you do not want to run more than one app or any demanding application.

I voted hot, but 16GB internal storage on these things is still very small though, lol.

In real life, being used by a 9 year old, it handled Minecraft and games perfectly. Interface also very responsive. Superb battery life. Fast CPU equals more hungry. Cannot recommend enough.

It should be a few pounds on eBay. Don't bother paying £15 or even £10. It's straight forward from eBay.
Bought one brand new for £50 from a local shop the other month. Easy to put it on the Oreo beta which was perfectly stable for me.

In summary:

The screen is ok for a device this cheap. Bright enough and responsive.

The processor is pretty slow next to slightly more expensive ones - definitely very noticeable lag when trying to do things quickly. It works fine with some patience though.

There's no fingerprint scanner, which is something of a comedown if you're used to biometrics.

Build quality is very nice - feels a lot more expensive than it is.

Nice and compact.

Supports WiFi calling - certainly on EE

Camera is a potato.

16GB internal is ok as long as your apps support SD. It does *not* support adoptable storage, so iPlayer downloads for example are a no-go. Even if it did, there's likely some bottleneck in terms of the speed of the SD card reader in a device this cheap, so apps would be horribly slow and laggy.

Hi
Where did you buy this for £50?

HiWhere did you buy this for £50?


It was just a local shop. Just a one-off but I thought it was a good punt and it proved useful for the period I had it. Sold it to a friend for £50 yesterday so didn't lose on it and it's a good device as a pre upgrade stop-gap for this person (who has broken their phone, and doesn't want to pay £230 to Samsung to fix it) or for a basic user.

Since it is running Oreo this has all the features - including the nice Oreo multimedia notifications and the new emoji, as well as Picture in Picture. Annoyingly Huawei have stripped away Oreo's lovely notifications overhaul in favour of boring tiles, so you get a worse experience on a top end P20 than on this £75 Nokia in that respect - not that you'd ever say this is a better phone

Sometimes manufacturer skins can ruin perfectly good stock Android features though.

Would this work with a GiffGaff SIM? They use O2 network
I recently got one of these second hand as a back up and i really like it i havent put it through it paces yet but it seems very good for the money very responsive and feels premium i think its just as good as my iphone 6 in many ways.

Yes
I am not impressed with O2 at the moment. I tried to order the HTC Desire 650 Like new. I was told after ordering it that it was out of stock, then I was told it was in stock and being despatched, then they told me no it wasn't because it was still out of stock.

I returned HTC Desire 650 Like new last month because the battery died in 15 min after full charge without being used for calls or back ground apps. And moreover the simcard slot had some problem, it didnt take any sim cards and it malfunctioned, So returned it for refund.

Maybe I had a lucky escape then.

"Should"? Quick eBay search for Nokia 3 unlock comes up very short for me. Brute force code. Vodafone unlock only. Nothing respectable I can see
