The Nokia 3310 is relaunching after nearly 17 years since its original release.
The original version of the phone has been one of the most popular phone models of its time and of Nokia. What everyone remembers about it is its sturdiness and its of course its long battery life. When using the phone you were literally forgetting about recharging it.
The new Nokia 3310 is not really a smartphone. It has limited internet capabilities enabled by 2.5G connectivity, which means slower browsing speeds than modern smartphones connected by 3G or 4G.
The operating system of the phone is called S30+, which has also a rather limited app market compared to what we became used to these days from other operating systems.
So with its rather limited features you might wonder why you would buy this phone. Well, for its very long battery life, which according to its makers can last up to a whole month on standby and can offer a total of up to 22 hours of talk time. That is really amazing if you consider that most of the phones these days need recharging on a daily basis.
The phone will sell at €49, which makes it even more attractive to buy if you want to use it as an emergency phone in case of a smartphone meltdown.
