I had the Nokia C3 phone four years ago and I'd never swap it with any other mobile phone since then. It's not even like any Android or iOS phones in the market, yet I believed that it's smart in its own way.
Sending messages through texting wasn't a problem for me after all. In fact, with the Nokia C3, typing is conveniently easy through its QWERTY keypad, it's just like I'm typing on my laptop keyboard, yet on a cuter version though.
However, the phone's memory space is limited to store a bunch of songs, yet its built-in memory card slot is able to hold a lot more.
As for its battery life, I can say that it's excellent. I actually had this experience wherein I forgot to charge my phone and I had to travel for about 6 hours and unfortunately, my battery remained just a bar of charge. But guess what, I was able to reach my destination with my phone's power is on.
Girly wise, I loved the various cute themes, displays and colours it has. In fact, I enjoyed changing it for at least once a week. However, the Nokia C3 has a not so clear 2 MP built-in rear camera.
