I dont want effing facebook if i buy this phone. Just have it as phone to call and text. u buy a smartphone if u want facebook and all the bells and whistles. 3310 is a legacy phone and is a good reminder of where we used to be before,
Monochrome screen, loongest battery life ever. Nowadays might as well be tied with their chargers, I hope they make this phone monochrome and just make it a really good basic phone, indestructible and battery life last for days.
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2017The whole premise of not adding 3g is the battery life and assurance of signal coverage, besid... moreIn reply to anonymous.... you make a valid point but whats the point of making a phone in 2g band when its getting discontinued public access more and more in future.?
Yes 3g has its reason for creation after we had 2g bandwith. But 2g bandwith are already planned to be discontinued for public use in next 10 years.
Why buy a diesel car in the UK when the law to ban disel cars in next 10 years are already being made now. You get the drift ?
Why book a flight in a week when the weather news warns a big stormy weather next week? You get the drift?
Why make a 2g phone when carriers are planning on scrapping that bandwith? still not getting the drift??????????
ED, 03 Mar 2017I wouldnt call this 3310! GO back to monochrome screen but make it bigger so it suits that ... moreThe whole premise of not adding 3g is the battery life and assurance of signal coverage, besides, what would you need 3g for?, facebook on a monochrome screen?
I wouldnt call this 3310!
GO back to monochrome screen but make it bigger so it suits that retro feel and sunlight legibility is always better than coloured screens anyway>
Make it 3g band as 2g is becoming extinct!!! This is a schoolboy error!!
Keep the footprint the same but just make it a little thinner, Dont reinvent the wheel if it aint broke
Keep the lay-out of the keys!!!!! That's what i like about nokia 3310!! That cramped 4-directional joystick are crap compared to the up and down and big ok button in the middle of the Original.
Please dont alter that U shape design because now it looks like an ugly U design yuck.
Durability test is a must! I had the original dropped many times, disintegrate apart only to pick it up and put it back together fine!!! Nowadays you dont get that same feeling of not being afraid to drop your phone.
And lastly, phone fascias!!! the best thing about Nokia 3310 in its hay day is the easy ability to just put a new fascia.... Not a case!!! and im talking front and back fascias!! I even had my monoscrome screen background changed from green to orange..... and other have changed it to other colour too. So even if millions of people bought, Pleanty of people had the look changed to the way they wanted it.....
Nowadays, if you want to change the look of your phone, you have cases which bulk up or stickers around it but with just stickers, your phone is vulnerable to breaking.
Bring back 3310 not just for design..... But for reasons why people love them.... Nokia misse the mark on this one.
Consumers ARENT stupid and know the 3310 wont be the top of the range phone anyway. SO play it by its strengths"!!!!!! Can someone retweet this to NOKIA!!! Just screenshot it. thanks
I am so disappointed for the Specs, the price should be around EUR30.00.
Congratulations on transforming the Chuck Norris of phones into a JOKE... Well done!
Anonymous, 27 Feb 2017Beautiful, but my country don't support 2G anymore. Hoping for 3G version.You know, a lot of countries killed 3G (WCDMA) too... Others will follow soon.
Daze of Old, 27 Feb 2017ATT in the U. S. does not support 2G.Not relevant, AT&T used 850 and 1900 MHz for 2G, 3310 it's build for 900 and 1800 MHz
The design of this phone is okay, but the specs of this phone is rather weak. Nokia should put the phone screen at least nHD (640x360) or VGA resolution . There suppose to be a wifi and 3g support. As for me the camera supposed to be 3.2 MP like the one on the N73 or Nokia 6500 slide. Support Xpress on cover. Lastly, up the phone battery to 1,500 mah. I hope I'm not to much.
Nikaki, 26 Feb 2017Whats the purpose of buying such a phone??For text/call purpose and the bring the damn ass nostalgia
WOW, I think nokia is better off in Microsoft's hands. I'm guessing Microsoft still holds the pureview patent while HMD just owns the name?
At first it was exciting hearing it was coming back but then finding out its only 2G is Pretty useless.. considering in Australia 2G is being shut off completely by August.
Whoever designed and approved it, they all should get a kick in the butt. This is not a homage, but a childish, girly, incredi-ugly piece of cr*p. I really hope they don't duck up their much anticipated flagship the same way.
They could have made this reboot better. The new 3310 is neither very retro like the original nor is it fully upgraded for 2017. So much for all the hype!
