One of the first Nokia phones to run on Android, the Nokia 3 brings to the table a set of specs that categorizes it as a mid-ranger. Its polycarbonate body with an aluminum frame houses a quad-core Mediatek MTK6737 processor, which records a processor speed of 1.3GHz . Its integrated Li-ion 2650mAh battery sits in between that of the Google Pixel's (2770mAh) and the iPhone 7's sub-average 1960 mAh battery.
Despite its mid-range specs, it puts up a facade of looking like a premium phone. It has a sleek design and is available in four color schemes (Silver White, Matte Black, Tempered Blue, and Copper White). Its 5-inch IPS LCD screen is armored with 2.5D sculpted Corning Gorilla Glass . It leans more on the thicker side in comparison to most phones, having an 8.48mm depth (8.68mm including the camera bump) . This adds a point to the cons of this phone.
It may not be the best camera-wise, but its front and rear snappers are fairly decent for a mid-range phone. The 8-megapixel rear camera might not be that spectacular, but its 8-megapixel selfie cam is something worth calling home about. It beats some flagship phones, such as the LG V20, which has a 5-megapixel selfie cam, and the iPhone 7, which has a 7-megapixel front shooter. The main camera features include Auto-focus, LED flash, and an f/2 aperture.

Making it to the pros and cons list is its 2GB RAM , which beats that of many mid-range phones, which usually come with 1GB RAM. A few models even come with less than 1GB RAM. The Nokia 3 is also equipped with a 16GB memory, which can be expanded to up to 128GB using a microSD card. It also offers Near Field Communication (NFC aids in the setting up Bluetooth connection by simply tapping the devices together).
