Hinging heavily on nostalgia, the new Nokia 3310 conjures up good memories of the original, but cannot keep pace in a smartphone-driven world.
PROS
Nostalgic appeal; Great battery life; Solid calling quality
CONS
Finicky OS; Poor camera
VERDICT
Will HMD Global’s new Nokia 3310 make feature phones cool again? Probably not, especially as users can get an entry-level smartphone experience for R1 000, which is only slightly more than the 3310’s R699 asking price. Instead, as we initially surmised, the new 3310 is a nice backup to have on hand when your primary phone battery dies and you need to make some calls.
