Amidst the burgeoning of smartphones, HMD Global has done the unthinkable and created a craze with the launch of a basic mobile. The evergreen Nokia 3310, touted as the hardest phone ever made, has made a remarkable comeback to the mobile world.
The feature phone which was once the epitome of excellence was newly unveiled at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Priced at EUR 49 (approx. Rs. 3500), Nokia 3310 will be available in India during the second quarter of 2017.
Excitement of the launch aside, you can get your hands on the newest Nokia device with discounts and added cashback. CashKaro offers extra cashback on purchase of products from over 1000+ online shopping sites. Nokia 3310 might probably be launched exclusively on Flipkart or Amazon India. You can shop for the phone from these sites via CashKaro and get additional cashback on your purchase.
Here are 10 reasons why you should buy the new Nokia 3310.
- No-Nonsense Design
Nokia 3310 comes with the same design and form factor as its old parent. Weighing at just 77 grams, it can easily slip into your pocket and feel like nothing. The smooth rounded corners and the small size of the phone make it perfect to hold and operate with one hand.
Every touch and feel of the new Nokia phone echo cheapness. This is exactly what we were expecting out of the device. Breaking away from the slick and perfect feel of smartphones makes Nokia 3310 stand out as an imperfect phone we’d love to own!
- Backlit Buttons
The buttons on the rebooted phone are no different from its predecessor. They are in the same place, of the same size and work exactly the same – the way we love it!
- Color Screen
Unlike the old phone, the upgraded Nokia comes with a 2.4” TFT color display with a resolution of 240×320 pixels. This makes it look sharper and edgier.
- Big Battery
One of the highlights of the old Nokia 3310 was its big battery life. The latest phone has an even better battery than its parent. With a large 1200mAh battery, you can get up to 22 hours of talktime and a whopping 31 days of standby time.
- Snake Game
Almost anyone who owned a Nokia mobile would remember playing the Snake game. The new phone has a flashy version of the game with the same loveable gameplay.
- MicroSD Card Slot
Nokia 3310 comes with an expandable storage of up to 32GB. This is a value addition considering the fact that you can load your own music and videos into the device and use a 3.5mm jack to enjoy media.
You can now easily transfer files between your Nokia phone and other devices with connectivity through Bluetooth v3.0.
Nokia 3310 has a 2MP snapper in the rear to capture decent images. However, don’t expect shots of the quality of smartphones from this basic camera.
- Web Browsing
Browse the web on a SUPER slow 2.5G network on Nokia 3310. This takes you back to the time when the internet was first used on feature phones. There is a version of Opera browser for surfing the web. Besides, the only way to scroll is using the directional pad – which is as nostalgic and old school as you’d expect it to be.
The Nokia 3310 can never replace a smartphone in today’s era. However, what it can be is a super sidekick to your primary phone. The new phone is a perfect secondary device to own and with its throwback design and age-old features, you’d still love to flaunt it like you did two decades back!
