The Nokia 603 is a workhorse,created on the basis of Symbian Belle. The device is a balance between the concepts of the average price and good opportunities. Thus, it is a mid-range gadget with a few mediocre features - 3.5 "display, 1 GHz processor and 5 megapixel camera with video recording 720p, but without LED flash.
Nokia 603 has the same bright mobile display, which was equipped with Nokia 701, but the abundance of colors is much more vivid.

Nokia 603 is quite large,so it can not take the first place on the grounds of the best design among smartphones. However, its conical edges and inclined corners make the gadget rather ergonomic and easy to hold in the hand. The management of the phone is extremely simple - all the buttons are sufficiently protruding from all sides and feel good to the touch, plus they are pressed very easily.
IPS-display size of 3.5 inches can boastresolution of 360x640 pixels and a density of 210 pixels. Such parameters are quite acceptable for use, but not if you regularly need to read small text. The viewing angles are quite wide, and the brightness is very high due to the output parameters of 1000, plus ClearBlack technology minimizes reflections and glare.
The Nokia 603 comes in black and whiteenclosures, there is the possibility of replacing the rear panel similar to any color, one of them is included free of charge. The device does not have a front camera, only an ordinary rear camera, which has a resolution of 5 megapixels with a fixed focus without an LED flash.
Nokia 603 - software features
The gadget runs on the Symbian Belle platform,which in our time is rare. As for the technical characteristics, the phone has a processor with a frequency of 1 GHz and 512 MB of RAM. Thus, the Nokia 603 is similar to other phones on the Belle platform - the Nokia 700 and 701. In contrast, the model 603 has 2 GB of internal memory, which is expanded using a microSD card.
Typing on a 3.5 inch display requires a certain habit, because long texts can be difficult to type. Alternatively, you can always try Swype for an alternative input method.
On the screen
Nokia 603 comes with a rich set ofpre-installed applications used by the Symbian Belle operating system - QuickOffice for viewing documents and text files, Adobe Reader for PDF documents, Shazam for song recognition, and photo and video editors. In addition, the default applications are also dictionaries and Vlingo ABC, voice recognition service (some kind of world famous Siri). The voice assistant allows you to control the phone with some phrases while driving, for example. Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja are set as an example of entertainment offers.
Internet and connectivity
Using Nokia 603, whose reviewdemonstrates many advantages compared to older Nokia phones, leaves only positive impressions. This is achieved through improved components and an optimized version of Symbian Belle. Panning and scrolling are soft enough to not cause discomfort, but still do not go as smoothly as on Android, Windows or iOS smartphones. Support Adobe Flash is very lacking, so you can not play games or watch videos on some sites. Flash Lite 4.0 in some cases comes to the rescue, but is not supported everywhere.
The ability to receive HSDPA signal is available from Nokia603, so you can use the phone in the T-Mobile 3G network and connect to the Internet with download speeds of up to 14.4. In addition, the smartphone has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM radio with a transmitter, A-GPS and NFC.
The camera interface has face recognition,the possibility of adjusting the color / sharpness / brightness and some effects, but not more, in terms of features. A camera with a resolution of 5 megapixels and with a fixed focus can not make a clear macro, since it focuses on objects located at a distance of about 40 cm from the lens.
720p HD video works with sequential 30frames per second, but it is also not enough detailed. The colors are well represented, and the exposure adjustment adjustments are fast enough while you are doing the panning. In general, the quality of photos and video is quite acceptable, but it is not necessary to expect any artistic photos and videos.
