The Nokia 3310 is in some ways better than the Samsung Galaxy S4, here's why

0. phoneArena 24 Jun 2013, 09:37 posted on

Before we begin, let's make it clear that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is among the greatest smartphones money can buy today. With all its awesome features, Samsung's flagship is at least a gazillion times better than a Nokia 3310. However, isn't it funny how in some ways a Nokia 3310 is still superior? Just think about it – the Samsung Galaxy S4 is pretty and all, but it is also fragile, while the Nokia 3310's durability has helped it achieve legendary status. Also, the Nokia 3310 could last for days on a single charge, while a typical smartphone, even the Galaxy S4, would need to be recharged almost on a daily basis. And that's not all. Read on to learn why a Nokia 3310 is still in some ways better than the Galaxy S4...

I will put my old nokia 252 up against this thing. I've dropped it in a lake, dried it out and 2 days later it started working again... it also fell out of my truck into a puddle and froze, the next day I found it and busted it out with an ice pick. cracked the screen with the pick but phone worked fine.

Such a cheese article, yes it's better because you can actually throw it & it will still work because ALL IT DOES is make calls.

Try to edit a spread sheet on that, then tell me then how much better it is than a Samsung Galaxy S4.

Man phones REALLY have come a long way! lol

This article is pointless. You could do this for any device in any form of technology. One thing is never better than something in everything.

Bring it on? It was discontinued long time ago! If you really want it, try eBay or Amazon, I believe they're still selling this son of a hulk. Good luck.

"A Nokia 3310, however, isn't as valuable so it won't attract a thief's prying eyes."

Chances are,the thief will give you money to buy a much higher or the thief will throw it back to you.. LOL

The only phone that will work during a zombie apocalypse will be a tin can. 3310 will work for a week though you could probably get a month out of it by switching it on on a need to use basis. Though don't know how long the cell towers will work or how long electricity will work with no one manning their stations.
