Product Design and Features:
The re-birth of Nokia 3310 is just the upgraded and bit advanced version of the original one. Nokia has tried to keep the design and feel of the new phone “look like” the older one but have removed the negative sides of the older design.
Unlike the older Nokia 3310, the new one comes in a shiny and glossy plastic finish as well as the matte finish. The new phone is available in 4 different fun colors – Red, Yellow, Blue and Grey. While Red and Yellow variants come in the glossy finish, the Blue and Grey are available in matte finish.
With 2.4 Inches display, it is bigger than the previous version of the phone. Not only it is bigger than the previous version but also is colored now, unlike the old black and white boring screen. The key pad is almost similar to the original version, with an exception of a central button which is bigger in size and also is used for shortcut to your inbox and camera.
Compared to the original bulky phone the new version is slimmer and more curvy. Nokia is always know for it’s good battery life and this is no exception. With 1200 mAh of battery the company claims a battery life that would last for 22 hrs of talk time and month’s stand by time. Yes, you heard that right..When people are running for chargers these days, this phone will always be there for your rescue.
The Nokia has kept is classic snake game in the phone, but this time it is a colored one. The control keys for the game still remains the same as the original version. It also has ‘my apps’ option in which you can install some useful apps on the phone. There are few pre-loaded games apps on the mobile, but as this is not android based phone so you can’t expect too many apps available for you.
For charging, you have micro usb port this time, so you don’t need a separate charger for the phone. You can use your regular android phone charger to charge this phone. The phone also supports 3.5 mm jack for connecting your headphones.
The major new feature in this phone is the 2 Mp camera on the back. The camera is not of high resolution but this is just an entry level phone, so given the price of the phone this feature is an add-on. Beside the camera, there is a led flash as well, which could be used as torch as well.
The display and navigation of the phone is basic and simple in nature. This is not an high end phone and the target consumers would be the people who need a secondary phone with a good battery life or those people who just need to make phone calls.
It supports 2G data only. So, if you are thinking to use your Reliance Jio Sim or 3G/4G network of other service providers then this is not a phone for you. You just can use the phone for basic web browsing and it does not support what’s app as of now. Maybe moving forward Nokia make a way for what’s app in there ‘My Apps’ option.
Here comes the best part of the phone. The battery life is undoubtedly the USP of the phone. As this is a very basic feature phone and would mostly be used to make or receive calls, the battery is automatically bound to last for long time. With a stand by time of 30 days and a talk time of 22 hrs, this phone won’t disappoint you, specially while travelling. These days when your smart phone does not last for more than 12 – 14 hours, this phone can come as a big relief specially if you are using this as your secondary phone.
