Nokia takes a stroll down memory lane this year to revive the 3310, revamped for the millennial era. Despite its limited capabilities, it has everything you need for a bare bones phone.
This isn’t the typical phone you need for shooting Insta-worthy moments and post them on social media. Instead, it is the handset you carry on those tough trips where your high-end smartphone might get ruined and where you might not get to an outlet and recharge. Behold the new Nokia 3310, a remake of the iconic handset with the help of today’s upgrades. Here are 3 reasons why you want to add this device to your mobile arsenal.
The iconic, indestructible plastic design is back
Don’t let the plastic construction fool you; just like the original, it won’t shatter if you drop it. Even without a glass protection, the Nokia 3310 can definitely withstand a few more knocks than other advanced handsets today.
Design-wise, it looks strikingly similar to the 2000 model but with a few more buttons below its display. It comes with a dual color scheme that reminds you of Nokia’s retro basic phones. With its old-school design, you may feel it is unmistakably affordable. But this is nicely offset by its sophisticated finish, comfortable weight, and nice buttons.
A battery that doesn’t run out of juice easily
The Nokia 3310’s makes up for its lack of modern features, such as a large display and better camera, by having a superb battery life. Its 1200-mAh battery can last up to 31 days on a single charge, which is quite impressive for a basic phone. Though that only applies if you don’t use your phone the whole time. If you frequently use it for taking photos, listening to music, and playing games, then it can last up to a week, which is still awesome.
Surprise! Snake returns
Snake returns with more snake-like visuals and colors for your entertainment. It also has a surname this time and is called the Snake Xenzia. This is made by Gameloft, featuring a series of stages with many different map layouts. Like the original game, you still need to devour as much food as you can without munching your own tail. However, this time, you are not limited to left, right, up, down moves, thus moving at any angles you like.
If you get tired of playing Snake, you might want to play these other games like Drag Race, Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, and much more!
The new Nokia 3310 is not only a device designed for people to revel in nostalgia. It is also for people who are looking for a basic device that can do simple tasks without the touchscreen and the extra features. With its tough build and impressive battery, it surely is a solid and dependable basic phone for everyone.
