Most of us cherish memories of using the old Nokia 3310 handset . More then a decade ago it marked a dawn of an era of mobile phones which lead to increase in market demand and capitalization. Nokia 3310 was stipulated to be the most successful model in terms of reliability and usability. I remember myself along with my friends calling it a “brick” , because of its sturdiness.
Company has done its best to keep the same old features which were a eye catcher for old school generation like me. Body is plain and simple like before , with a plastic body and curve features. Key difference with its previous predecessor is the colored screen , bigger battery , camera , multiple sim slot, mini usb charger and bluetooth feature addon .
Question arises in everyone’s mind , is it worth buying ? Tagged at 49 Euro ( 52 dollar and 3500 INR) approximately , it seems cheap , but looking at the competition it might face a serious competition in low level price segment. HMD global is putting an immense effort to revive the old magic of Nokia brand , after the recent acquisition from Microsoft.
