Nokia 3310 brings back our Childhood Memories

Earlier this week Nokia announced the launch of its new phone Nokia 3310 in India. It was expected that Nokia 3310 phones were scheduled to be available via offline stores from Thursday, 18th May 2017. The phone is called Nokia 3310(2017) as Nokia had an older version of Nokia 3310.The feature phone stole the limelight at the company’s MWC 2017 launch event and received an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response at the event.

Here we get you all the Nokia 3310 specifications, which you have been waited for.


It is available in four bright and funky Color options that are Warm Red and Yellow (both with a gloss finish), and Dark Blue and Grey (both with a matte finish). The phone sports a refreshed design, keeping the rounded edges and sturdy build iconic to the original Nokia 3310. It has got a new curved screen window which is designed for better “readability in sunlight.” The phone also sports new push buttons and a new UI with similarities to the old Nokia 3310. It sports a 2.4-inch QVGA (240×320 pixels) color display. The Size of New Nokia 3310 is 115.6 x 51 x 12.8 mm.


Remember the good old days when you didn’t have to worry about your phone being charged or no? The days are back with the New Nokia 3310. Nokia 3310 (2017) has a boundless and removable 1200mAh battery. It offers 22- hour talk-time, and you can leave the phone on a month-long standby time. It is also supports the regular Micro-USB port and ditches the pin charger which it had in its older version. The phone has features Bluetooth 3.0 with Nokia’s SLAM technology.


On the back is a 2-megapixel camera with LED flash. The phone also offers FM radio. The phone is available in both single SIM and dual SIM variants. It doesn’t have a front- facing selfie- camera, which may prove to be a drawback for the phone.


It runs on Nokia Series 30+ OS. The phone comes with 16MB storage and supports expandable storage via MicroSD card, expandable up to 32GB. The phone uses 2G connectivity for calling and texting.


The Nokia 3310 price in India is Rs. 3,310. But it is to be believed that better phones are available in the market which will be lighter at your pockets too.
With the Nokia 3310 (2017), HMD Global also brought back the classic Snake game which has been optimized for the new color screen.

My Review:

The 2G feature phone is a nostalgic reminder for Nokia fans, bringing back the long battery life, and Snake game from the original Nokia 3310. The highlight of the new Nokia 3310, much like its original sibling, features a massive standby time of up to a month. The phone comes with few pre-installed apps but is a setback for the people who love using applications. It doesn’t support popular apps such as WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter. The same has severely crippled the chances of success for the phone. Another setback for the phone is its connectivity to only 2G and does not even support Wi-Fi connectivity. The phone should be bought only if you are a Nokia FAN. Otherwise, it is priced quite high and the services being provided are also not up to the expectations or the price. Other phones available under the same price range and better features are Panasonic T44, Swipe Konnect Neo 4G or you could also wait for a little to see what Reliance wants to offer its customers. But the colors being offered are quite vibrant and funky, which is an added advantage with the phone.
I think you should wait and see what Reliance Jio has to offer and then decide whether to buy Nokia 3310(2017) or no.
