Review: Nokia C3-01 Touch & Type
The C3 has a resistive touch display. Resistive displays are cheaper than capacitive displays, but don't have quite the same performance. That said, the C3's small screen felt odd to use. Most touch phones have displays with a minimum of 3.2 or 3.5 inches. The 2.4-inch display in the C3 left little room for expansive swiping gestures. Still, it registered most touches the first time, and gave me very few problems. For example, I never encountered the meant-to-swipe-but-accidentally-opened-an-app phenomenon that's all too prevalent on some resistive touch phones that are out in the market.
