84

Nokia 3310 certainly carries the nostalgic feel with it, and that’s what we somehow love the most. The phone which was also known among the youth in the early 2000’s as a ‘brick phone’ because of its strength and durability is now back in the ring, bringing back the good old memories.

Nokia 3310 is finally launched in India for Rs 3,310 but will it fulfills the expectations of demanding Indian Consumers.

PROS:

[1] New Nokia 3310 comes with new push buttons, rounded corners and curved screen.
[2] Battery is one of the most important part of any mobile phone. When compared to today’s smartphones, the new Nokia 3310 stands on its own with 1200mAh battery that it claims offers 22 hour of talk-time.
[3] The original Nokia 3310 had been tagged as a near-indestructible phone durable enough to survive countless drops. The new phone is expected to be similar in terms of durability and reliability.
[4] HMD Global, parent company of Nokia, has decided to go the offline route for Nokia 3310. You will easily find it in nearby stores as in old day.

CONS:
[5] The phone supports only 2G connectivity which means that there’s no fast Internet support: there’s no 3G, or 4G, or Wi-Fi. It will be very hard for prospective buyers to dump Jio 4G.
[6] The phone comes pre-installed with select apps but there’s no WhatsApp, no Facebook, and no Twitter.
[7] On the camera front, the new Nokia 3310 only sports a 2-megapixel camera with LED flash, so your photos will leave something to be desired.
[8] At a price of Rs. 3,310, there are many smartphones available in the market with better configuration.
