In terms of headlines, the release of the rebooted Nokia 3310 dominated 2017 for the Finnish phone company. But if you're on the hunt for a budget mobile and won't have your head turned by feelings of nostalgia (or by Snake!) then the Nokia 3 should be on your shortlist.
With prices starting at less than £100 outright, the Nokia 3 would make a good mobile phone deal if you want something cheap to shove in your bag in case of emergencies or as a first phone for your child. Its limited camera and processor are understandable at the price, but the Nokia 3 is way cheaper than the manufacturer's more premium Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 yet still solidly built and very easy to use - it runs off pure Android 7 Nougat, without the faff of custom skins or pre-loaded bloatware.
Sound good? Then take a look at our price comparison tables below. There's one for contract deals and a second that will tell you where to bag the cheapest price on a SIM free handset. And if you want a bit more information about the budget Nokia 3, then scroll to the bottom of the page for the specs and a potted review.

Arguably, the Nokia 3 was never really intended for a long term contract. Even if you go for the cheapest plan, you'll end up paying in excess of £200 over two years for a phone worth less than half that. So buying it outright and combining it with one of our best SIM only deals makes much better financial sense.
You can grab a standalone SIM card for less than £5 a month. Check out tour price comparison table below to get the best price on your new Nokia 3.
Nokia 3 review
Attractive on the eye and wallet
Screen size: 5-inch | Resolution: 1280 x 720 | Rear camera: 8MP | Weight: 140g | OS: Android 7 Nougat | RAM: 2GB | Storage: 16GB | External storage: microSD up to 128GB | Battery: 2650mAh
Considering the price, the Nokia 3 is surprisingly stylish. We love the way that it runs from the stock Android 7 interface, making it an absolute doddle to use. Ok, so it's wanting in the power department, but at this price you can't really expect too much more. Read TechRadar's expert Nokia 3 review for more.
