The device offers in a modern key all the features of the legendary 3310 that Nokia had launched on the market in 2001, with some small additions to make it even more fanciful and versatile as the 2 Megapixel camera with LED flash, the Opera Mobile web browser and support at the Dual SIM.
Produced by HMD Global, the Nokia 3310 version 2017 is a "feature phone" designed for the nostalgic, the most loyal fans of the Nokia brand and for those who need a mobile device simply to receive and make voice conversations and / or to send and receive SMS. So forget to find in the new Nokia 3310 all those "convenience" present in smartphones currently on the market such as the Wifi connection, the touch screen, support to WhatsApp (the Facebook Messenger is installable, but it is very limited), and all those advanced functions dedicated to entertainment and entertainment.
The design is similar to the one that made the Nokia 3310 iconic and unmistakable, with rounded lines and a white oval frame that wraps and enhances the display, in this case in color and with a 2.4-inch diagonal and a resolution of 240 × 320 pixels. The thickness and weight, however, have been significantly improved compared to the original: only 12.8 mm and 79.6 grams. This is to make the device more manageable and comfortable to carry with you, even in a pocket!
The new Nokia 3310 is an essential device, simple but above all robust and shock resistant, just like the first mobile phones produced by the Finnish company. It is very simple to use but at the beginning requires a little patience to get used to the alphanumeric keyboard and the T9 to write the message text.
The reception of the network signal is discreet, as is the volume and quality of the audio both in the capsule and in the hands-free mode. In addition, like the most modern smartphones, this new Nokia 3310 also offers the possibility of blocking certain numbers and accessing the call log (the history) through the homonymous function. The contacts directory can be populated manually or via bluetooth transfer, one at a time. Forget the convenience of setting up your Google, Microsoft or other provider account and automatically display all your contacts in your address book and keep them in sync when changed.
Among the "applications" preinstalled on the new Nokia 3310 you will find the new version of Snake, in color and with a new and more modern interface produced by Gameloft, the Countdown timer, the Stopwatch, the Flashlight (uses the LED flash of the camera), the Converter (Temperature, Weight, Length, Area, Volume and Currency), the Alarm function (which also sounds when the phone is switched off), the calendar with the possibility to insert events and reminders, the Wheather app that provides info on the weather conditions of a default location (requires internet connection), Calculator, Notes app to take notes, Voice Recorder, File Manager and FM Radio that just like smartphones work only if you connect the earphones.
The Nokia 3310 version 2017 is a must for collectors and aficionados of the Nokia brand.
