The NUU comes packed as a standard, nothing exciting from the box, slightly bulker from the outset. The made in China with 2 IMEI listed on the box inspired little confidence. The dual sim 5.50-inch touchscreen with 720 pixels by 1280 pixels of resolution again inspired little confidence The sapphire blue colour stood out amongst a variety of phones.
The Asahi strengthened glass casings was strong and solid to feel and hold in one hand. The feel of the phone was of an expensive phone with a soft dual curve screen.The supplied TPU Case was a nice touch for a case, basic but practical and will not leave you searching but they have their own cases which you can see reviewed HERE

This smartphone has similarities to a Samsung’s high-end Galaxy phone. This is a budget smartphone with high-end features, acceptable audio, and NFC for android pay. The most striking feature on the smartphone was the sapphire blue colour which stood out amongst a variety of phones. The dual curve screen was comfortable in the hand allowing one hand use when texting and so on.
The phone lacks some features in terms of not being waterproof, has no 3.5 mm Audio Jack which is a common trend,The smartphone lacks the option of wireless charging and takes up to 2 hours to charge. The dual camera mode on the back of the camera worked well on occasions but lacks clarity when used in poor lighting. Given there is no wireless charging it is not a huge thing as many phones yet have to adopt this feature and here in Ireland it is a slow take up with consumers in general.
Design and build on this device is up there with high end smartphones and is a joy to hold with a glass back and front overall this sits with high priced devices when it comes to looks and build and you cant really complain about it at all bar the fingerpint magnet backing which is normal in this set-up.
The Nuu Mobile G3 is an Unlocked phone, not tied to any network which has the advantage of allowing any network sim and does not contain the watered-down version of android The Dual Sim is a great feature allowing a work sim and personal sim on the same phone. This phone is a pleasant surprise within the price range, the build quality and features stand out above its weight.
