First impressions and information about the Nokia 3310 2017

While walking through Target I stumbled across the Nokia 3310 2017 for $49.99 and just couldn’t resist. I picked the little guy up for fun and didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did.

Mind you I’ve only spent a few hours with it but let you give you my first impressions.

Unboxing:

The unboxing experience of the Nokia 3310 2017 was really nice. The phone is front and center in the box and when you pick it up it’s incredibly light. I nearly forgot to put in the battery. When you go to get the battery you see there is a pair of headphones and a charging cable in the box. I was surprised to see the headphones. Although they’re small you don’t see them that often. You’ll notice that underneath where the battery goes you’ll be able to add a micro sim card and up to 32gb of additional storage.

This phone is small:

As you could have guessed, this old-fashion phone is very light, small, and easily pocketable. It’s really solid too. It doesn’t feel like the old 3310 did but I don’t think that’s an issue. I don’t think I have to baby the phone but it still looks really nice. I could see myself carrying this around if I wanted to go off the grid for a while and not feel embarrassed.

It Just Works:

There are a few cute games but I don’t really think that’s the point of the device. The device does what it’s supposed to do and it does it well. It makes calls, sends texts and doesn’t run out of juice. There are a few social media apps like Facebook and Twitter as well as an internet browse. I wouldn’t recommend you use them all that often but if you’re in a pinch then its better than nothing. Just note, it doesn’t have WiFi so you will be using your data to access these features. I doubt they use much data but it’s still good to be aware.

What is This Phone For?:

If you’re the type of person who wants to get off the grid or doesn’t want to be on the grid then get this device. You’re not forced to setup an account to use it or link an email address. Simply pop in your sim and you’re good to go. Just like the good old days. This is also a great device if you’re going away for a while and you’re not sure you’ll be near an outlet.

This phone isn’t for those who want the latest and greatest in technology. It doesn’t play high end games, and it doesn’t have loads of applications. The camera is terrible, and it only has about 32mb of storage out of the box. However, I really don’t think that’s the point. Phones like this aren’t being made anymore. When was the last time you saw a quality feature phone? Exactly, probably not for a long time. That’s just what this is. A quality feature phone and in 2018, I think it’s a necessity to have on store shelves.

Nokia have announced two new feature phones, the 207 and 208, both with HSDPA + (3.5G) connectivity and splash proof polycarbonate design. They are scheduled to go on sale in this (3rd) quarter of 2013.

While both phones have identical designs there are some differences. The 208 has a 1.3MP camera with voice guidance to help you line up a “selfie”. The 208 also has a dual sim version. The 207 has been described as ideal “for people who work in places that ban camera phones on security grounds” as it comes without a camera, but packs a battery with a stand by time of “more than a month”.

The candy bar design is similar to the Nokia Lumia 520 with a removable shell which cups the screen. Both the 207 and 208 come in red, cyan, white and black.

These feature phones surprisingly come with Mail For Exchange support and Internet Connection Sharing, so you can sync your calendar and contacts, as well as using it as a Modem for other WiFi only devices.

This may not be everybody’s idea of the perfect phone, but at an unsubsidised price of US$68 before tax it could make a very useful second phone.

Here are the specs:

Networks: GSM 850/900/1800/1900 WCDMA 850 or 900/1900 or 2100*

Size/ Weight: 114.2 x 50.9 x 12.8mm / 89.63g (Nokia 207); 90.59g (Nokia 208)

Display: 2.4” QVGA

Battery: 1020mAh

Camera:1.3 MP (Nokia 208)

Connectivity: Bluetooth 3.0 with Slam sharing, micro USB, 3.5mm AV connector, AHJ headphone support, Easy Swap Dual SIM (Nokia 208 Dual SIM)

Memory: Up to 256 MB flash; SD card support up to 32GB
