The specs of the 2.4-inch screen touting Nokia C3 readily reflects its low-end price tag. Running the Series 40 operating system opposed to the more advanced Symbian/S60 OS found on many Nokia handsets, the C3 is not compatible with the full selection of widgets.

Not a mere shell of a phone, however, the C3 offers key functionality at basement prices such as built-in email, messaging and Facebook all whilst being very friendly on the battery. Packed around the platter of social networking and messaging services is a 2-megapixl camera.
