What a perfect phone for school children.
Just calls and texts. Brilliant!
No excuse nor need to carry an internet enabled phone to school with all the negative issues.
So many benefits.
GPS would be a useful addition for tracing kids.
Campaign from Ministry of Education needed.
I can't wait to play the new version of snake game that will
come if i am not mistaken by Gameloft.
Does Nokia realize that there are countries that have, or are planning to, shut down 2G services in favor of the faster 3G? What if I were to visit said country only to find out that my 3310 can't receive any network signal whatsoever?
Impressive design. Looks like a futurisric basic phone. A nice modern touch to the old Nokia 3310. Btw, I am seeing orange although the color listed is warm red. Does it look ike red to you guys?
Savor, 27 Feb 2017Just looking at photos of the original 3310 brings a nostalgic tear to the eyes. I regret havi... moreI am glad too that Nokia is back
and i hope that all colours will be available for the new 3310.
This will pretty much only work in the west until 2G gets phased out...which is in at most 2 years from now. They should have ventured to make it voice compatible on as many bands as possible.
i was very much hyped for it's rebirth,
but i think they could have improved the design a bit.
and 2.5g is not a problem but WiFi was a must. why no wifi
Although most people won't download any big stuff in it, but still there should have wifi, just to check mails in emergency, when our main smartphone is out of power or something like that.
Adding wifi would have increased the no. of potential buyers who would be buying it.
Just looking at photos of the original 3310 brings a nostalgic tear to the eyes. I regret having to trade-in mines for the Nokia 3595. Big mistake. If I get this 2017 remake, I would want it in dark blue like the og I got on my 21st birthday. I do like how the HMD execs said this is a "digital detox" phone. There are days when I want to be left alone with nobody using email or FB Messenger to contact me. I just need simple calls and texts. Do the other stuff on the laptop. Again, 3310 should be put inside car emergency first aid kits. Just so happy Nokia IS BACK!
It is likable, but they should have sticked to the original design and put in E-Ink disply
AnonD-648321, 27 Feb 2017let's see if it could last more than a dayyou wouldn't have said this if you ever used a NOkia feature phone.
their battery life is ham.
all coz of the optimised & simple custom OS which knows when and where to utilize battery.
If someone study carefully the story of all corporations
he will find out that no other brand started releasing flagship phones
except Apple and thats because this is the only kind of phones they make.
So have patience.
New Nokia 3310 seems very useful to me.
It's nice. Reminds old days but now with new style and features. Thanks Nokia
Azrael, 27 Feb 2017these kind of phones are your emergency tool man..even though how sophisticated your apple iph... moreYup, and it is liberating from all the smartphone distractions out there. For every emergency kit in the back of our car, it should include a 3310 inside.
I have owned at least 15 different brands of phones. Nokia is on top when it comes to reception and reliability. Motorola is up there with them. Understand kids, Motorola and Nokia have been phones for decades. Apple is better at computers since those are their roots. Samsung makes internal components, premium TV's, and other appliances. They are a pair of Johnny-come-latelys to phones.
I feel Nokia will succeed again and bring the 2000's form factor for the 2020's. We will see a rebirth of several phone designs from 2000-2009. I want to see the N95, N82, Motorola RAZR V3, BlackBerry 9000/9900, and Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 get revived. History always finds a way to repeat itself. What is old becomes new again. The 2020's will be a decade filled with classic remakes. 3310 is just the beginning like the iPhone SE before it. The idea of slab design after slab design will wear out for people.
