And to begin with…
A lot of cell phones come out every month, and you get overwhelmed pretty quickly.
New technology or basic model – what’s the difference?The operating system is a matter of taste; on this 3.4 64 GB, Nokia chose Android.
If this first characteristic is not blocking for you, let’s go to the tests to find out if it is adapted to your uses.
Unfortunately, our analysis showed that this product was below what you would expect from a smartphone.This model is very far from the top of the range, and may eventually meet the need for a first phone for a child.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.

The 3.4 64 GB, enough for internet use?
Your smartphone must be able to accompany you at all times.Beyond its telephone function, we expect it to be as good for surfing the internet and usable when travelling.
That 3.4 64 GB looks really small.A modest 6.39 -inch screen, which on the other hand is easier to fit in a pocket and easier to hold.
That means it’s not practical for internet browsing.Even less good for watching a movie.The primary use of this phone would be to make calls…
In addition, through its Wlan option, you can connect to wifi terminals.Convenient if you have cut off portability (abroad) and want to stay in touch with your loved ones.There’s GPS on this phone.You’ll appreciate not having to ask for directions anymore.Unless you’re at the bottom of a cave, you’ll be able to know where you are at any given moment.
It is sometimes convenient to have several phones in one. And this model can handle multiple Sims.In other words, the ability to use multiple phone lines in this unit.That is, several operators at the same time.This feature will be useful for travellers among you, who will be able to integrate a prepaid SIM card of the country they are in, without having to remove the main card.
We found out that this 3.4 64 GB doesn’t have reinforced glass.It’s hard to predict that a device will never fall down.
A possible solution at a lower cost is the addition of a transparent tempered glass film, without altering the screen’s tactile reactivity.
As far as autonomy is concerned, with its 4000 mAh, it is comparable to other competing models.It will not be necessary to recharge during the day.
Nokia did not choose to install the fast charge feature on this model.Yet it has become almost indispensable, due to the speed at which batteries are now draining.
The right model for multimedia use?
For many, phones are beginning to replace TV sets.It’s a device that is always at hand.You can also listen to continuous music anywhere.Thanks to the ever-increasing access to networks, and with easy-to-use applications, it has become very simple to watch a streaming movie (Netflix, YouTube or Disney) on a phone screen.However, not all smartphones will do the trick.
This is not a model designed for multimedia.It is one of the worst in this area.The 6.39 -inch screen is poorly suited for exercise.And its screen resolution is low.It is rather advisable to listen to music.
This model has an IPS LCD screen.The visual result is very good no matter from what angle you look at the screen.
Nokia has also designed this product for audio use.The 3.5mm jack input allows the connection of headphones and/or a microphone.
To transfer the sound from the phone, you will have the option via bluetooth.The sound result is of a good level.
And finally, for the sound, we were surprised not to find the stereo.
Nokia’s smartphone: a good choice for making video calls?
Impossible to play properly without a high-performance device.This implies that the batteries must be able to keep up.The processor and graphics chip must also be of high quality to make the image fluid.Simply put, the higher these features are, the better your gaming experience will be.
Our analysis shows that this 3.4 64 GB is average.Even if the Qualcomm SM4250 Snapdragon 460 (11 nm) processor is not of the latest generation, it is powerful.And with the graphics processor, the visual result is fluid.
In terms of memory, this model is in the middle.It is 64 GB that are provided.And because Nokia predicted that some of you would be demanding gamers, you have the ability to expand the available memory.
Whatever your use, unless you are playing H24, the battery is sufficient.This model is in the middle of the category.With a power of 4000 mAH, it will be enough to charge the day before to be able to hold the day.
We would have appreciated a higher level for displaying applications.Reading comfort where the display is not up to scratch.This is an entry-level model: 269* pixels per inch.Even if it remains legible, the clarity of the image and the display are below the competition.
Finally, and regrettably, this model does not allow for contactless payments.
Concerning audio or video use?
The quality of smartphones allows you to take pictures as well as many cameras.For a long time, manufacturers have been communicating about the millions of pixels their devices were equipped with.Other important criteria must be taken into account, such as zoom, HDR function, Flash Led, Panorama mode.The possible retouching via application is also interesting.Nokia has long been designing smartphones with top quality photo sensors.
The manufacturer has made a system perfectly integrated with Android.This gives you 3 lenses installed.
The resolution of this model is not very efficient.An image resolution of 13 Mp which will give a mediocre result.The components of the device allow quality selfies.This will allow you to retouch your photos.You will be able to see at which point each point in the image is correctly captured.This model contains 64 GB of available space.This space will be correct to store your image and sound files.And with this amount available, you’ll have time to sort out what you don’t want to keep and what you need to transfer to your computer or to the cloud.
The 3.4 64 GB, a good choice for the right use
The design of this 3.4 64 GB corresponds to an entry-level product.It’s a model that’s mostly intended for troubleshooting.In conclusion, it’s a pricey choice.
