Nokia’s 3310 was perhaps the first mobile phone for almost all of the early millennials. Hence, it will always have a special place in our hearts.
Now, the iconic phone is back from the dead with a revamped version.
Iconic Nokia 3310 is back
While it remains a 'dumb' phone in an era of smartphones, and lacks many features, including Wi-Fi, apps and a touchscreen, 3310 can in no way replace your iPhone or Samsung Galaxy.
However, the device can be a lot of fun. Here are five reasons the revamped device is still a great phone to have:
1. Battery life
It comes with tiny 2.4-inch display with a 1200mAh lithium-ion battery, which means the phone can last for up to a month on a single charge. This makes it a great device to carry on long trips to take photos, listen to music and play Snake for long.
At $65, the 3310 is a lot cheaper than high-end smartphones, and won’t put a dent in your pocket, even if you lose it.
The 'brick' phone follows the reputation of its ancestor, and features a solid plastic body, and no large display to protect, making it virtually indestructible.
The classic game, which first appeared on old Nokia mobile phones is also back with a more creative version.
The revamped version brings back old memories of texting with friends, and is what makes the new device worth buying.
