When I first saw and heard about the Nokia C3 my first reaction was to ask how it is different from the Nokia E63 which my wife has. So I set out to compare these two full-QWERTY keyboard phones from Nokia.
Most of the features and specifications of the Nokia C3 and the Nokia E63 are the same but the differences do matter a lot. The things they have in common aside for having a full QWERTY keyboard are:
*Quad-band GSM 850/900/18001900
*3.5 mm audio jack
*GPRS and EDGE at Class 32
*Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
*Bluetooth with A2DP support
*USB v.2.0 with microUSB
Like I said, their differences matter a lot. Below are the differences between the Nokia E63 and the Nokia C3:
*Nokia C3 does not have 3G, Nokia E63 has it
*Nokia C3 does not have video calling, Nokia E63 has it
*They both have TFT display but Nokia C3 has 256K colors while Nokia E63 has 16M colors
*Both have vibration and MP3 ringtones as alerts but Nokia E63 has more because it can use polyphonic ringtones
*Nokia C3’s internal memory is only 55MB while Nokia E63’s is 120 MB
*Both have card slots but the maximum for the Nokia C3 is 8GB while it is 16 GB for the Nokia E63
*Nokia C3 has social network integration which the Nokia E63 doesn’t have but on the other hand, with Nokia C3 you can’t edit documents (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, PDF), but it’s something you can do in Nokia E63.
With these differences between the Nokia C3 and the Nokia E63 one that matters to many are their prices. The prices are around PHP 5,500 and PHP 9,000 for the Nokia C3 and Nokia E63 at present.
