New Nokia 3310 goes official with incredible battery life and a new version of Snake
by Milen Yanachkov / Feb 26, 2017, 11:03 AM
Nokia just brought brought back one of the most — if not the most — legendary mobile phone ever from its long, long retirement. Say hello to the new Nokia 3310!
It's truly a modern classic reborn, as the company puts it, in the most literal way imaginable. The new 3310 is a lot like its predecessor, in that it boasts incredible battery life (22 hours of talk time and a month of stand-by), and it also plays Snake! The version of the legendary game that comes pre-loaded on the device is not a carbon copy of the original, however, so keep this in mind if you're planning on buying the new 3310 just for it.
The new Nokia 3310 looks a lot like its grandfather and sports a similar egg-shaped design with an almost identical keypad below the screen. It also offers nothing in the way of Wi-Fi connectivity, GPS, apps, or any other "smart" features that we've become used to in the past decade or so. It has a 2MP camera on the back though!
The new Nokia 3310 will be available in four colors — Warm Red, Yellow (both with gloss finish), and Dark Blue and Gray (with matte finish) — and will be available globally in Q2 of this year starting at €49.

28 February New Nokia 3310 camera turns out better than Galaxy S7 camera: an unbiased comparisonThe original Nokia 3310 from 2000 didn't have a camera, but if it did, we're sure it'd have been rad. Fast-forward to 2017, though, and there's hardly a phone out there tha doesn't come with some sort of a snapper built into it. Good thing, then, that the brand spanking new 3310 from 2017 has one, and of the fancy-schmancy 2 megapixels at that! So we thought... maybe you guys would be interested in feasting your eyes on some real-life camera samples straight from this glorious shooter? You got it!

27 February Nokia 3 hands-on first look: can it compete with Moto G and Xiaomi?The Nokia 3 is a dirt cheap 5-inch Android phone with clean software and the added spice of a sturdy build quality...
27 February Nokia 5 hands-on preview: bouncing back on stock AndroidThe Nokia 5 is crafted out of a single sheet of anodized aluminum that can be painted in Silver White, Matte Black, Tempered Blue and Copper White colors, so it joins the ranks of premium chassis phones in its class like the Moto G5 Plus or most every Xiaomi handset. The smooth metal body is a looker, especially in the blue or red hues, but it feels a bit slippery in the hand, so we'd advise a case on that puppy. Other than that, the phone is well-made, with no gaps or creaks all around, and with solid, easy to press buttons that give good tactile feedback. The phone carries a 5.2-inch HD display, which is nothing to write home about in terms of resolution, but has good viewing angles, and no visible slant to the overly cold or warm side of the color spectrum. The Nokia 5 also comes with the contemporary USB-C port at the bottom, and a physical home button (no finger scanner, though), making it a nice mix of the modern and the nostalgic trends...

Hugely disappointed wit the modern iteration of 3310. Itls not even close to that nostalgic feel i was anticipating. should have stayed with the classic ol' design.

I do not want to "touch" it to it remember all the memories I have associated with 3310, i just needed to look at it to do so. It can be called an evolved version of their already existing feature phones but definitely not THE Nokia 3310.
