Video: Nokia C3-00 WiFi test (vs iPod touch)

| March 6, 2011 | 6 Replies

General techy youtuber has been using the Nokia C3-00 S40 QWERTY and has decided to test out the WiFi. What the video shows is what we take for granted all the time from Nokia (WiFi bugs aside) – the reception of their radios be it WiFi/GSM/3G clings on the best especially at really poor signal areas in comparison to competitors. My friends blackberries/My Samsung Omnia 7/my mate’s SE has no chance when on T-Mobile in my area whereas N8 and several others can at least hold a call without dropping.

Chris compares the same WiFi connection on his iPod Touch 4th Gen (which may or may not be widespread) but seems to not be so good at connecting with poor signal WiFi. To be fair on the iPod touch, it should be trying to eat up more data than the C3-00. This ability though makes C3-00 and the rest of its companions great at fulfilling Nokia’s future goals of connecting the next billion. It’s all good to have great browsers, HD content on the fly, but if you have poor signal, high data costs, then you can’t really use your device.

Chris notes at the end that it’s surprising that compared to how much he paid for C3 to the iPod touch, he gets better signal with the Nokia. Lol, didn’t we have this revelation when holding the iPhone 4 wrong killed signal? My Samsung also dies when I touch it. Hence the silicone cover around it. N8…no not really. It just looks at me to say, “this bar isn’t going down”. And N900? We gave you this tutorial in how to make that drop calls. As ever, the antenna-gate did nothing to tarnish Apple’s reputation. How can you with such a master at the marketing-helm and actually, undeniably decent products? (this time around – compared to Nokias anyway. Because we’re still forever waiting for our real flagship to go up against the original iPhone).

Chris actually has another video discussing the unboxing of his C3-00. He looked at getting a Blackberry but decided he preferred the Nokia. He also likes the battery – which he says lasts a week.
