Time to cut the Nokia 3310 birthday cake

No matter how far smartphone technology progresses, there is something about the simplicity and functionality of old mobile phones that always appeals to us. In 2000, the original retro phone favorite was launched, and to date is still one of the best-selling phones of all time. Cut to 2023 and the new Nokia 3310 and Nokia 3310 3G are still going strong. Here’s why the latest Nokia 3310 models get better with age.

Today’s Nokia 3310 is reliable

The original Nokia 3310 was tough. Today’s Nokia 3310 combines that level of durability with a slimmer build, a curved design, and a battery life that won’t have you tethered to the nearest power outlet. They provide up to 22 hours of talk time or 31 days of standby from a single charge. Compare this to the average smartphone battery life of around 10 hours and Nokia 3310 is the clear winner. Whether you want to use it daily or save it as a back-up phone for the household or your car’s glove box, Nokia 3310 won’t let you down.

Nokia 3310 can help you have fun and relax

Smartphones have become incredibly capable everyday companions, but we tend to take them too seriously. We protect them in cases and spend ages trying to capture the perfect shot. Before the smartphone boom, there was a quirky, playful charm to be found in features phones. That’s something that today’s Nokia 3310 and Nokia 3310 3G embody. The Yellow and Warm Red colors are joyful with an unmistakable nod to a retro aesthetic, while the Charcoal option is there for those who want something low key. The rear camera is there for taking snaps, but without the plethora of filters and adjustments available on smartphones, the pressure to take a studio-worthy shot isn’t there. It becomes more about preserving a memory and living in the moment.

The new Nokia 3110 phones have the Snake game

Everyone remembers Snake. While the simple mechanic satisfies a need for puzzle solving and quick thinking, the original game doesn’t make the most of the color screen on today’s Nokia 3310. That’s why the Snake game got a little update as well. Snake Xenzia brings the game to life in vibrant color. It’s comfortingly familiar yet refreshingly new – just like the phone itself.

Nokia 3310 is great for digital detoxing
