The Nokia C2-03 is a dual-SIM handset with touch and type functionality that makes it a good fit for users who love texting on the go.
The Nokia C2-03 has a carbon graphite color finish and the metallic texture and the glossy band between the two finish layers enhance both touch and style. The phone comes with a 2.6 inch TFT – LCD display with a resolution of 240x320 pixels and gives up to 65000 colors. Nokia C2-03 measures 103x51.4x17 mm and this makes it to fit perfectly well in the pocket. The phone comes with a 1020 mAh BL- 5C Li-Ion battery lasting up to 400 hours on standby mode and 5 hours on talk time. The Nokia C2-03 has 10 MB internal memory with 32GB expansion capability.
The OS is quite easy to use. The rendition of the icons is quite impressive with clarity as the key highlight. A downside though is the touch screen experience appears to be quite unsatisfactory in the sense that it is very easy to select the wrong icons on the menu. The swappable SIM card slot makes it easier to switch networks.
Nokia C2-03 has excellent signal quality and it will function impeccably in different locations. It also has good call sound quality. The mic performs really well when it comes to noise reduction.
