5 Reasons Why the Nokia 3310 was the greatest mobile phone ever!

We all know that Microsoft acquired Nokia’s handset division last year for $7.2 Billion because the company continues to fail with their products and services. But do you know that there was a time on the late 20th century in which Nokia launched an extremely wonderful handset that would lead the company to dominate the mobile market and sold more than 126 million units, from 2000 to the series’ retirement in 2005. And this is no other than the Nokia 3310.

1. Battery Life to the Max!

    at bakit nyo kinocompare ang dalawang phone? ang laki nang pagkakaiba dapat bang e compare?
    anong klasing manunulat ba ito?

    3310 ay walang mga apps na e install at hindi smart phone, kaya matagal maubosan nang baterry, hindi touch screen kaya at hindi lahat nang mukha niya screen kaya hindi madali mabasag ang screen.

    e ka bobo naman ang writer nito..yung comparison dapat ginagamit sa kaparihong level nang bagay na kinukumpara, e pano kaya kung yung 3310 lagyan nang battery nang smart phone? or vice versa yung OS nang 3310 ilalagay sa smartphone pati na yung screen?

      Eh kabobong bisaya ito. This is obviously a joke story (albeit it does make a point on how reliable the Nokia 3210/3310 series is) posted by Yugatech as a nostalgic reminder for old Nokia users more than a decade back.

      I saw this a mile a way and it was just a recycled story just to honor Nokia after Microsoft acquired it.

  7. deejars says:

    I bought mine for P8,500 when I had my first christmas bonus in December 2000. Nag fail lang ata ang battery pero di ang phone. And yeah its not a fair comparison since its not a smartphobe naman but yes its a dependable phone.

    Saw this already yearsss ago. Recycled material. Copied? Wala bang citations?

  9. Anonymous says:

    Where’s the side-by-side spec comparison as promised by the header? Also, shouldn’t this article end with the usual “Advantages of Nokia 3310”, “Advantages of “?

    Nokia 3310, when it was launched here, priced about PhP10K. What would be its current price if adjusted for inflation? Kinda wondering if the price difference would be give its modern counterpart Nokia 3310’s features/advantages over it.

    wow i love all my phones way back in college days(1990s). i had nokia 3210 bought it from my savings for 8k, then nokia 5110 for 5k, nokia 3310, philips fizz.. they’re all sturdy still working now but now they’re all in a display cabinet at home for the new generations of my niece and nephew to see what mobile phones before look like when it started.

  19. Naalala ko pa nung time na nagpapalagay pa ako ng acetate sa screen nyan, tapos irereprogram para magiba ung animation ng icons, at maglalagay ng iba’t-ibang back-light colors, tapos bawat notification nya, iibahin din ung light flash nya na sumasabay sa tunog ng notifications. galing! boss ang nokia that time pagdating sa mobile world. sayang, kung programmer na ako nun, ako na mismo gagawa sa phone ko ung mga tweaks na binanggit ko. ang sarap balikan ung mga time na usong uso pa ang clans tapos hindi pa threaded ang per conversation ng katext mo. hahaha! saya!

    T’was my first phone and used it for years. Miss that old phone if only the keypad and battery could have last longer. How i wish that Microsoft could re-create those kind of phones like a new 3310 version (similar to Samsung’s 2016 version? =P ) with added features but maintaining the durability and longevity of the battery. I’ll definitely buy one even if it cost at least P5k.

    I have to commend the author for pointing out that mobile phones nowadays lasts only a few hours. What’s the point of having a smartphone if you could not use it for days (especially during emergencies)? Bring a powerbank? Why buy a separate one? Before, you may just want to purchase an extra battery since it is more practical and economical.

    For Readers: Feel free to post your comment(s) but dare not to be an imbecile.
