Review of Nokia 3310 (2017) push-button phone

HMD Global has received all rights to use the Nokia brand for both conventional feature phones and smartphones. This company is a subsidiary of Foxconn, which is trying its hand as a manufacturer of devices under its own brand. At the same time, push-button phones are not a priority, they are produced for two reasons - the button market has not disappeared with the development of smartphones, and the Nokia brand is well known in this market. The fact that Microsoft has actually curtailed the production of Nokia push-button phones has freed up a niche for Chinese companies, and now HMD Global wants to return part of the market back. But not at the expense of profits. And if Chinese manufacturers are ready to create phones at bargain prices, their cost is less than $ 10, then HMD Global's approach is completely different, they make money on such devices, and they earn a lot. To successfully sell them, the company appeals to popular models of the past. For example, the same Nokia 3310 was produced from 2000 to 2005 and was sold with a total circulation of 126 million pieces, this is one of the most popular models in the history of the phone market.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

The main message of HMD Global is that “the legend returns”, these are the words that can be read in a huge number of materials devoted to the new model. In February, at an exhibition in Barcelona, ​​\u200b\u200bthis device was the highlight of the program, to look at it, crowds gathered, it was Nasco Mirror AC for Sale. hard.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

A well-played PR card drew attention to a model that would otherwise be completely invisible, there is nothing outstanding about it. This is a phenomenon of the old Nokia, which retained a loyal audience, despite how the company was destroyed by people from Microsoft, many people still have warm feelings, and they are ready to invest their money in products with this brand. It was an amazing discovery for me that in 2017, years after the destruction of Nokia as such, there are people who are still asking for something from Nokia in stores, the feeling that they spent this time in suspended animation and did not notice anything what happened in the market.

Positioning Nokia 3310 2017 happens like this - this is the return of the legend, which is necessary for children or adults who experience nostalgia and need a second, feature phone for calls. Let's see how successful this return is.

Design, dimensions, controls

The appearance of the Nokia 3310 has undergone changes, this is a different device, created based on the motives, it is difficult to recognize the same 3310 in the novelty, or you need to have a very rich imagination.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

The model is available in four colors - red (glossy), yellow (glossy), dark blue (matte), gray (matte). My body is dark blue, as the manufacturer emphasizes, the plastic is colored in bulk, that is, over time the color will not peel off, since this is not paint. But the problem with the case is not at all in this, it is overwritten in a pocket in a matter of days, bald patches appear on it. And I checked it on several devices, everywhere the same thing. The gray device is also overwritten, but there, because of the color, it is not so striking.

Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017)

Глянцевые корпуса веселенькие, у них проблемы с затиранием нет.

Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017)

Размеры телефона - 115.6х51х12.8 мм, вес - 79.6 грамм. Он небольшой, хорошо лежит в руке, за исключением того, что расположение камеры не совсем удобно, обычно кусок пальца ее закрывает.

Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017)

Вряд ли кто-то будет часто использовать камеру на этом аппарате, поэтому говорить о том, что это проблема из проблем, не стоит, для редких случаев можно и подвинуть палец.

The first problem you face is the opening of the case, it was made very tight. There is a plus in this, since the back panel stands like a glove, but the minus is also obvious - you won’t be able to open the case instantly, and you can easily break off your nails. Let me remind you that the original 3310 also had a tight case, despite the button on the back, it was difficult to remove the panel. Here, apparently, they decided to repeat the old experience, in the video you can see what kind of torment this moment brings with disclosure.

Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017)

Unfortunately, this model is a budget model and there are no side volume keys. Inside, you can see two slots for microSIM-cards, and the sled for the slots is not processed, they have sharp edges. See how shavings were removed from my SIM card.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

No adapters for SIM cards can be used in this model, the design is such that when you try to remove the card with the adapter, you will simply bend the contacts, this is separately warned in the instructions.

There is a separate ringtone speaker on the back panel, but it is quite quiet, the volume is below average. There is also a camera lens and an LED flash, which also acts as a flashlight.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

At the top end there is a microUSB connector, it serves to charge the device, at the bottom end there is a 3.5 mm jack for connecting headphones or a headset, it is present in the Russian delivery, it is very inexpensive, budget, but you shouldn’t have expected anything else.

The assembly quality of the device is good, there are no rough edges. Due to the convex screen, a kind of lens, handprints are clearly visible on it.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

Display

In push-button phones, a 2.4-2.6-inch diagonal is considered a large screen, here the screen is 2.4 inches with a QVGA resolution. The picture quality is good, the fonts are large and well distinguishable. There is a polarizing filter for working in the sun, the picture remains readable.

Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017)

I like the device with its screen, I can’t say that it somehow differs from high-quality Chinese buttons, but it is definitely one of the prominent representatives of this class of devices.

In standby mode, nothing is shown on the screen, but you can wake up the device to see the screensaver in the form of a black and white clock.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

Keyboard

Nokia push-button phones have always or almost always had high-quality buttons, they had a good move, soft pressing, the company paid great attention to this. Unfortunately, not everything is in order with the keyboard in this device. To begin with, the buttons have a very small stroke, add their small size here, and it turns out that typing text, and not just a number, will be difficult.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

The function keys are dual, which does not cause any particular problems, but in games, for example, the same snake can accidentally press adjacent keys, which leads to exit from the toy. Bored and cramped.

Navigation key has an inscribed OK button, various functions are assigned to deviations.

The backlighting of the keyboard is white, not very bright, but it hides the symbols on the buttons, they merge into a mess.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

It's a pity, but for the keyboard on this device you can give a solid three to the engineers who created the device, nothing good came out of them.

Battery

Li-Ion 1200 mAh battery, claimed talk time - up to 22 hours, standby time - up to 25 days, while listening to mp3 - up to 51 hours, FM radio - up to 39 hours. With one SIM-card and about an hour of calls daily, the device worked quietly for about 8 days. The less you touch the screen, the more it will work. Since, apart from SMS and a calendar, there is not much to do here, this is a dialer for calls that will work for a long time. In standby mode, she will live quietly for several weeks. Full charging time is about 2.5 hours.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

Communications

This is an ordinary dialer that supports only 2G (in Moscow and the region, Tele2 subscribers can safely forget about it). The lack of 3G in a device of this price is discouraging, which is strange, especially since Nokia had models of this level with 3G.

The presence of Bluetooth is useful for exchanging contacts with smartphones, for example, this is how I downloaded all my contacts from an Android smartphone, it took a couple of minutes (a thousand contacts). Everything works with a bang, and this is a huge plus of the device. You can transfer pictures taken on the Nokia 3310 using the same Bluetooth. No synchronization with a PC is provided, and it is not needed.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

Working with two SIM-cards

The device has one radio module (GSM 900/1800), so simultaneous operation of two cards is impossible. Nokia offers to set forwarding, then if any card is unavailable, the call will go to the second one. You should not do this, since the cost of redirecting is quite high for most operators.

In the calls and messages menu, each list contains an indication of which card the event was from, when dialing a number, you can select a card. You cannot choose your own icons and names for each map. But at the same time, there are separate counters for messages, data and calls for each of the cards.

Camera

An ordinary 2-megapixel camera without autofocus, the target audience does not really need a camera on such a device. But she distinguishes this device among many buttons, so they either do not have cameras, or they are not of very good quality.

The menu can be represented by a list or a 3x3, 4x4 matrix.

You can assign a list of applications and functions that you choose yourself to the left key.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

Phonebook. 2 thousand names can be stored in memory, only one number per name. You can set your own picture for the name (with a memory card installed). The list has a search by name. There is a black list where you cannot add recorded contacts, numbers must be entered manually. And it's all! A very austere phone book that raises more questions than it answers. Notebooks on the old Nokias were an order of magnitude better, right there everything is very short and will only suit children.

Messages. There is support for both SMS and MMS. Templates, black list, smiles - everything is standard, and there is nothing special here. Messages received are displayed on the main screen in a small pop-up window. They appear as a chat in the list.

Call lists. Three lists - dialed, missed, received. Everything is quite simple.

Alarm clock. Up to 5 alarms with repetition on certain days, both your own file and the radio as a melody (you need to connect a headset).

FM radio. Works only with the headset turned on, there is a hands-free mode, search for stations and display of text information. Everything is extremely simple.

Apps and games. There are 4 games, all of them are demo versions, if you want to play - pay 99 rubles plus the cost of SMS. The charge comes from the operator's account.

The same snake looks like a parody of the old game, it is free, but does not cause a desire to play.

Previously, similar devices from Nokia had applications for working with Facebook, Twitter and other social networks, now only the Weather remains, but it does not work well, since the EDGE connection is slow and you have to wait until the information is loaded, the practical value is almost zero .

Impressions

In terms of voice quality, the phone is average, nothing from the old Nokia is even close, it is Chinese, and not the best. One microphone, not the best location, the interlocutor hears noises in the wind. The ringer volume is medium or lower, you can skip it. The vibrating alert was rather weak for me.

Constantly comparing this device with Chinese dialers, I did not find anything of the kind in it - yes, it may look a little more stylish, but it also costs 3,990 rubles (50 euros in Europe). There are more than enough competitors on the market, for 2,000 rubles you can find models with large batteries, they can also act as an external charger, for example, the Senseit L208.

Senseit L208

This handset is not as glossy as the Nokia 3310, but it wins in terms of battery life, the new version has two speakers (for calls and for calls), and in terms of price/quality ratio it is simply better. And the fact that you can buy two of these devices plays a role.

In retail, you can easily find phones for 1,000-1,300 rubles that offer the same set of features as the Nokia 3310. And this set of features is typical for the market today. Based on this, it is impossible to say that the legend has returned, the time of the button has irretrievably gone, and an attempt to revive the Nokia 3310 is a good PR move for HMD Global, but it means absolutely nothing within the market. Sales of Nokia 3310 are very small, which was expected based on the cost of the product.

For example, the Nokia 215 DS, completely similar inside in terms of OS and functions, cost 2,590 rubles two years ago, I don’t really understand how the cost of the same chassis could increase in two years. These models are comparable in many ways, although they have different designs. It's just that HMD Global understands that mass success will not happen, and therefore they want to make super profits on a once popular name.

It's amazing how tenacious the Nokia brand has turned out to be, even in 2017 they are squeezing additional profit out of it. For the end consumer, there is little point in buying the Nokia 3310, unless you are nostalgic for the previous model and for some reason do not think that the novelty is its continuation.

Previously, similar devices from Nokia had applications for working with Facebook, Twitter and other social networks, now only the Weather remains, but it does not work well, since the EDGE connection is slow and you have to wait until the information is loaded, the practical value is almost zero .

Impressions

In terms of voice quality, the phone is average, nothing from the old Nokia is even close, it is Chinese, and not the best. One microphone, not the best location, the interlocutor hears noises in the wind. The ringer volume is medium or lower, you can skip it. The vibrating alert was rather weak for me.

Constantly comparing this device with Chinese dialers, I did not find anything of the kind in it - yes, it may look a little more stylish, but it also costs 3,990 rubles (50 euros in Europe). There are more than enough competitors on the market, for 2,000 rubles you can find models with large batteries, they can also act as an external charger, for example, the Senseit L208.

Senseit L208

This handset is not as glossy as the Nokia 3310, but it wins in terms of battery life, the new version has two speakers (for calls and for calls), and in terms of price/quality ratio it is simply better. And the fact that you can buy two of these devices plays a role.

In retail, you can easily find phones for 1,000-1,300 rubles that offer the same set of features as the Nokia 3310. And this set of features is typical for the market today. Based on this, it is impossible to say that the legend has returned, the time of the button has irrevocably gone, and an attempt to revive the Nokia 3310 is a good PR move for HMD Global, but it means absolutely nothing within the market. Sales of the Nokia 3310 are very small, which was expected based on the cost of the product.

For example, the Nokia 215 DS, completely similar inside in terms of OS and functions, cost 2,590 rubles two years ago, I don’t really understand how the cost of the same chassis could increase in two years. These models are comparable in many ways, although they have different designs. It's just that HMD Global understands that mass success will not happen, and therefore they want to make super profits on a once popular name.

It's amazing how tenacious the Nokia brand has turned out to be, even in 2017 they are squeezing additional profit out of it. For the end consumer, there is little point in buying the Nokia 3310, unless you are nostalgic for the previous model and for some reason do not think that the novelty is its continuation.

Review of Nokia 3310 (2017) push-button phone

HMD Global has received all rights to use the Nokia brand for both conventional feature phones and smartphones. This company is a subsidiary of Foxconn, which is trying its hand as a manufacturer of devices under its own brand. At the same time, push-button phones are not a priority, they are produced for two reasons - the button market has not disappeared with the development of smartphones, and the Nokia brand is well known in this market. The fact that Microsoft has actually curtailed the production of Nokia push-button phones has freed up a niche for Chinese companies, and now HMD Global wants to return part of the market back. But not at the expense of profits. And if Chinese manufacturers are ready to create phones at bargain prices, their cost is less than $ 10, then HMD Global's approach is completely different, they make money on such devices, and they earn a lot. To successfully sell them, the company appeals to popular models of the past. For example, the same Nokia 3310 was produced from 2000 to 2005 and was sold with a total circulation of 126 million pieces, this is one of the most popular models in the history of the phone market.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

The main message of HMD Global is that “the legend returns”, these are the words that can be read in a huge number of materials devoted to the new model. In February, at an exhibition in Barcelona, ​​\u200b\u200bthis device was the highlight of the program, to look at it, crowds gathered, it was Nasco Mirror AC for Sale. hard.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

A well-played PR card drew attention to a model that would otherwise be completely invisible, there is nothing outstanding about it. This is a phenomenon of the old Nokia, which retained a loyal audience, despite how the company was destroyed by people from Microsoft, many people still have warm feelings, and they are ready to invest their money in products with this brand. It was an amazing discovery for me that in 2017, years after the destruction of Nokia as such, there are people who are still asking for something from Nokia in stores, the feeling that they spent this time in suspended animation and did not notice anything what happened in the market.

Positioning Nokia 3310 2017 happens like this - this is the return of the legend, which is necessary for children or adults who experience nostalgia and need a second, feature phone for calls. Let's see how successful this return is.

Design, dimensions, controls

The appearance of the Nokia 3310 has undergone changes, this is a different device, created based on the motives, it is difficult to recognize the same 3310 in the novelty, or you need to have a very rich imagination.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

The model is available in four colors - red (glossy), yellow (glossy), dark blue (matte), gray (matte). My body is dark blue, as the manufacturer emphasizes, the plastic is colored in bulk, that is, over time the color will not peel off, since this is not paint. But the problem with the case is not at all in this, it is overwritten in a pocket in a matter of days, bald patches appear on it. And I checked it on several devices, everywhere the same thing. The gray device is also overwritten, but there, because of the color, it is not so striking.

Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017)

Глянцевые корпуса веселенькие, у них проблемы с затиранием нет.

Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017)

Размеры телефона - 115.6х51х12.8 мм, вес - 79.6 грамм. Он небольшой, хорошо лежит в руке, за исключением того, что расположение камеры не совсем удобно, обычно кусок пальца ее закрывает.

Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017)

Вряд ли кто-то будет часто использовать камеру на этом аппарате, поэтому говорить о том, что это проблема из проблем, не стоит, для редких случаев можно и подвинуть палец.

The first problem you face is the opening of the case, it was made very tight. There is a plus in this, since the back panel stands like a glove, but the minus is also obvious - you won’t be able to open the case instantly, and you can easily break off your nails. Let me remind you that the original 3310 also had a tight case, despite the button on the back, it was difficult to remove the panel. Here, apparently, they decided to repeat the old experience, in the video you can see what kind of torment this moment brings with disclosure.

Nokia 3310 (2017) Nokia 3310 (2017)

Unfortunately, this model is a budget model and there are no side volume keys. Inside you can see two slots for microSIM-cards, and the sled for the slots is not processed, they have sharp edges. See how shavings were removed from my SIM card.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

No adapters for SIM cards can be used in this model, the design is such that when you try to remove the card with the adapter, you will simply bend the contacts, this is separately warned in the instructions.

There is a separate ringtone speaker on the back panel, but it is quite quiet, the volume is below average. There is also a camera lens and an LED flash, which also acts as a flashlight.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

At the top end there is a microUSB connector, it serves to charge the device, at the bottom end there is a 3.5 mm jack for connecting headphones or a headset, it is present in the Russian delivery, it is very inexpensive, budget, but you shouldn’t have expected anything else.

The assembly quality of the device is good, there are no rough edges. Due to the convex screen, a kind of lens, handprints are clearly visible on it.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

Display

In push-button phones, a 2.4-2.6-inch diagonal is considered a large screen, here the screen is 2.4 inches with a QVGA resolution. The picture quality is good, the fonts are large and well distinguishable. There is a polarizing filter for working in the sun, the picture remains readable.

I like the device with its screen, I can’t say that it somehow differs from high-quality Chinese buttons, but it is definitely one of the prominent representatives of this class of devices.

In standby mode, nothing is shown on the screen, but you can wake up the device to see the screensaver in the form of a black and white clock.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

Keyboard

Nokia push-button phones have always or almost always had high-quality buttons, they had a good move, soft pressing, the company paid great attention to this. Unfortunately, not everything is in order with the keyboard in this device. To begin with, the buttons have a very small stroke, add their small size here, and it turns out that typing text, and not just a number, will be difficult.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

The function keys are dual, which does not cause any particular problems, but in games, for example, the same snake can accidentally press adjacent keys, which leads to exit from the toy. Bored and cramped.

Navigation key has an inscribed OK button, various functions are assigned to deviations.

The backlighting of the keyboard is white, not very bright, but it hides the symbols on the buttons, they merge into a mess.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

It's a pity, but for the keyboard on this device you can give a solid three to the engineers who created the device, nothing good came out of them.

Battery

Li-Ion 1200 mAh battery, claimed talk time - up to 22 hours, standby time - up to 25 days, while listening to mp3 - up to 51 hours, FM radio - up to 39 hours. With one SIM-card and about an hour of calls daily, the device worked quietly for about 8 days. The less you touch the screen, the more it will work. Since, apart from SMS and a calendar, there is not much to do here, this is a dialer for calls that will work for a long time. In standby mode, she will live quietly for several weeks. Full charging time is about 2.5 hours.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

Communications

This is an ordinary dialer that supports only 2G (in Moscow and the region, Tele2 subscribers can safely forget about it). The lack of 3G in a device of this price is discouraging, which is strange, especially since Nokia had models of this level with 3G.

The presence of Bluetooth is useful for exchanging contacts with smartphones, for example, this is how I downloaded all my contacts from an Android smartphone, it took a couple of minutes (a thousand contacts). Everything works with a bang, and this is a huge plus of the device. You can transfer pictures taken on the Nokia 3310 using the same Bluetooth. No synchronization with a PC is provided, and it is not needed.

Nokia 3310 (2017)

Working with two SIM cards

The device has one radio module (GSM 900/1800), so simultaneous operation of two cards is impossible. Nokia offers to set forwarding, then if any card is unavailable, the call will go to the second one. You should not do this, since the cost of redirecting is quite high for most operators.

In the calls and messages menu, each list contains an indication of which card the event was from, when dialing a number, you can select a card. You cannot choose your own icons and names for each map. But at the same time, there are separate counters for messages, data and calls for each of the cards.

Camera

An ordinary 2-megapixel camera without autofocus, the target audience does not really need a camera on such a device. But she distinguishes this device among many buttons, so they either do not have cameras, or they are not of very good quality.

Phonebook. 2 thousand names can be stored in memory, only one number per name. You can set your own picture for the name (with a memory card installed). The list has a search by name. There is a black list where you cannot add recorded contacts, numbers must be entered manually. And it's all! A very austere phone book that raises more questions than it answers. Notebooks on the old Nokias were an order of magnitude better, right there everything is very short and will only suit children.

Glossy cases are fun and don't have rubbing problems.

The dimensions of the phone are 115.6x51x12.8 mm, weight - 79.6 grams. It is small, fits well in the hand, except that the location of the camera is not very convenient, usually a piece of your finger closes it.

It is unlikely that anyone will often use the camera on this device, so it’s not worth saying that this is a problem of problems, in rare cases you can move your finger.

The first problem you face is the opening of the case, it was made very tight.

Alarm clock. Up to 5 alarms with repetition on certain days, both your own file and the radio as a melody (you need to connect a headset).

FM radio. Works only with the headset turned on, there is a hands-free mode, search for stations and display of text information. Everything is extremely simple.

Music player. Able to search for music in all folders on the memory card, displays album art. Everything is simple and clear, there is support for playlists.

Opera acts as an embedded browser, so it's simple. You cannot replace it with something else.

Apps and games. There are 4 games, all of them are demo versions, if you want to play - pay 99 rubles plus the cost of SMS. The charge comes from the operator's account.

The same snake looks like a parody of the old game, it is free, but does not cause a desire to play.

Calendar supports input of events, display only for the month.

Calculator, voice recorder, file manager, countdown timer, stopwatch, unit converter - all this is done simply.

Previously, similar devices from Nokia had applications for working with Facebook, Twitter and other social networks, now only the Weather remains, but it does not work well, since the EDGE connection is slow and you have to wait until the information is loaded, the practical value is almost zero .

Impressions

In terms of voice quality, the phone is average, nothing from the old Nokia is even close, it is Chinese, and not the best. One microphone, not the best location, the interlocutor hears noises in the wind. The ringer volume is medium or lower, you can skip it. The vibrating alert was rather weak for me.

Constantly comparing this device with Chinese dialers, I did not find anything of the kind in it - yes, it may look a little more stylish, but it also costs 3,990 rubles (50 euros in Europe). There are more than enough competitors on the market, for 2,000 rubles you can find models with large batteries, they can also act as an external charger, for example, the Senseit L208.

This handset is not as glossy as the Nokia 3310, but it wins in terms of battery life, the new version has two speakers (for calls and for calls), and in terms of price/quality ratio it is simply better. And the fact that you can buy two of these devices plays a role.

In retail, you can easily find phones for 1,000-1,300 rubles that offer the same set of features as the Nokia 3310. And this set of features is typical for the market today. Based on this, it is impossible to say that the legend has returned, the time of the button has irretrievably gone, and an attempt to revive the Nokia 3310 is a good PR move for HMD Global, but it means absolutely nothing within the market. Sales of Nokia 3310 are very small, which was expected based on the cost of the product.

For example, the Nokia 215 DS, completely similar inside in terms of OS and functions, cost 2,590 rubles two years ago, I don’t really understand how the cost of the same chassis could increase in two years. These models are comparable in many ways, although they have different designs. It's just that HMD Global understands that mass success will not happen, and therefore they want to make super profits on a once popular name.

It's amazing how tenacious the Nokia brand has turned out to be, even in 2017 they are squeezing additional profit out of it. For the end consumer, there is little point in buying the Nokia 3310, unless you are nostalgic for the previous model and for some reason do not think that the novelty is its continuation.
