Reading time: 4 - 6 minutes

Reading time: 4 – 6 minutes

The Nokia 3310 has been one of the most popular mobiles of all time, so it seems mean to award it just one star. However, the truth is that the 3310 cannot compare with modern phones: it’s big and heavy, has hardly any features, mediocre battery life, and is not as reliable as many people would like to believe. The newer Nokia 3100 is a much better choice.

Review

The features of the phone have become quite basic with the introduction of colour and photos. However for someone who wants to buy a phone so that they can phone people the Nokia 3310 is perfect. The phone isn`t exactly stuck in the stone age as it has many good options. The phone has 4 games, bantumi, pairs, snake 2 and space invaders. They aren`t exactly PS2 standard but they pass a few boring moments on the bus or if you are waiting for someone. The phone has a good range of ringtones and has space for 7 extra ringtones which can be composed or sent to your phone. There is a few picture messages and there is yet again space for more if you choose to do so. The Nokia 3310 also supplies a calculator, clock, alarm and reminders
