Review: Nokia C3-01 Touch & Type
I can't recall ever having a problem with the Bluetooth performance on a Nokia device and the C3 doesn't change that story. The Bluetooth radio easily connected to mono and stereo headsets, as well as other phones and my computers. It all worked like a charm. Call quality via mono headsets was OK, and stereo playback was very good.
The C3 allows users to make small adjustments to the appearance of the clock on the home screen. It can be switched between a legible digital readout, and an illegible analog one. More importantly, however, the clock on the C3's lock screen is nice and big, and easily read at an arm's length. Good enough to replace a watch? You betcha.
