If you are shopping in the budget segment, this is probably one of the better value options available; its sub-$200, with a big 5.7-inch display, and all-day battery life in most situations. For the price-sensitive smartphone buyer, that’s a good combination.

Most aspects of the Nokia 1.3 remind you that this is a very affordable phone – the performance, the design, the camera quality – but as long as you're sticking to the basics, it's a cost vs benefits balance that we think will appeal to a certain number of people.

To be fair, you do not expect much from a $169 smartphone. But the Nokia 1.3 delivers well for the price. It is everything you need in a value phone. A removable battery, decent bright screen, good volume, dual Sim, and the Nokia 1.3 doesn’t shirk on build quality either – no flex or cheap materials...

The Nokia 1.3 is sufficient if you: want to install less than five additional apps, do not want to use your smartphone for taking photos, look at/use your smartphone at a frequency of less than every two hours.

The Nokia 1.3 exceeds all expectations for a phone so cheap. It has a bright IPS display, a neat and compact design and a camera that isn’t too bad for the price. Its sturdy build materials should help it last the test of time, too, and the removable back cover makes for easy battery replacements in the future. Performance-wise, it may be lacking, but with Android Go apps that best cater towards low-end hardware, it’s able to make the best of its weak internal specifications.
