The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

With the updated D3300, Nikon takes the already strong D3200 and improves the sensor and shooting speed for a solid but ultimately unnecessary upgrade. Not surprisingly, the D3300 has excellent image quality for an entry-level camera, with ePHOTOzine saying the "exposure is reliable and gives good results, with bright saturated colours." As the D3300 is aimed at beginners, a user-friendly interface and control layout is important, and TrustedReviews says its "controls reflect its position as an entry-level DSLR." However, if you own a D3200, or even a D3100, there isn't much of a reason to rush out and upgrade to this, but if you're just starting out, the Nikon D3300 is a good choice.
