Before the era of smartphones, there were only few quality phone manufacturers and Nokia was one of them. In order to make a comeback, the Finnish brand is bringing a new lineup of Android phones. We have the Nokia 3, smallest and the cheapest of them all, with us and we will be taking an in-depth look as to what it has to offer. To start off, the Nokia 3 smartphone comes with Android 7.0 Nougat which isn’t skinned, at all and some decent specifications. We will be talking about it in much greater detail in our final review. This post, on the other hand, is focused towards the unboxing experience of the phone and the first few thoughts once you start using it. Read further to find an in-depth unboxing experience and our first impressions.
The Nokia 3 smartphone will be shipping to greater markets very soon. Our unit is a Pakistani variant, other variants might have slightly different accessories. Furthermore, Nokia is offering up to 4 colors but ours is the Matte Black edition. This color gives it a very stealth look and makes it quite indistinguishable from a far.

Nokia 3 Unboxing
Starting from the box, a vibrant Nokia signature image is printed on it with the Nokia branding along with the image of the phone. The rest of the sides are quite empty. However, on the bottom side, you would see a detailed description of the Nokia 3.
What we noticed, the box doesn’t carry over the color rather the box is standard with the white variant of the phone being displayed. Alongside an overview of the phone, you would notice the specifications. Some key features include the metal frame, 4G LTE support and 16GB storage along with 2GB RAM.
To get to the inside compartment, you would need to slide out the whole box. A little bit unconventional and distinctive. Once you slide away, the Nokia 3 would be placed on one side while the other side will house the accessories. The paperwork is beneath the phone while the accessories have their own separate box. Accessories include a microUSB cable, charging adapter and headphones.
