Before I got my 3310 I owned a Nokia 7110
, an altogether much more capable
phone. However, it was big, and I never was too sure that the flip down keypad cover
wouldn't just break off at some point. I wanted a simple
phone that I knew would last, and preferably take up less space than the 7110.
I ended up choosing between the Nokia 8210
and the 3310. Although the 8210 weighs next to nothing
, it's also too small for me. I find the keypad uncomfortable
, and I'd probably lose it. So I decided on the 3310. Yes it's a bit of a toy
phone, but look at it this way
, you can turn the rumble thingy off, and no one's forcing you to play the games.
The changeable fascia
s are nothing new, and again, no one's forcing you to buy the canary yellow
one. And the screensaver
feature? Guess what, yes, you're right .. you can turn that off too.
Although the 3310 lacks a builtin modem
for data services, I no longer need one. The data aspect was my main concern
with the 3310 but once I admitted to myself that although it would be cool, I no longer actually needed
it, the choice was clear.
If you want a simple, well built
little phone, and you're not fussed about data services (trust me, you're missing nothing
) - I'd recommend the 3310, it's a great little phone.
