New Nokia 3310 vs old Nokia 3310 what’s changed
Despite the crisp displays, fast processors and stylish designs offered by today’s smartphones, the iconic Nokia 3310 mobile phone still retains its charm. Nokia just launched a bunch of Android powered smartphones at its pre-MWC event, but the redesigned Nokia 3310 turned out to be be the showstopper. Launching it 17 years after the original 3310, the HMD-owned Nokia is taking baby steps back into the mobile business by experimenting with what the brand is known for, before diving into the highly competitive Android smartphone arena. So what does the redesigned 3310 bring to the table, as compared to the iconic Nokia 3310 of the 2000’s? Well, let’s find out.
Design and Display
The 2017 Nokia 3310 takes most of its design cues from the original model. The keypad on the newer 3310 has a striking resemblance to the older variant, but now comes with a d-pad in the centre which is flanked by large answer and end key on either side. While both the 2000 as well as the 2017 models have been built using plastic, the latter can be seen with softer curves and rounded edges unlike the cuboidal shape of the former. The newer model also comes in more peppy hues with glossy finish where as the original 3310 was primarily available in dull shades of Navy Blue or Grey.
For display, the original Nokia 3310 shipped with a monochromatic panel which has now been replaced with a QWVGA colour panel on the 2017 Nokia 3310. The newer model also comes with polarised layer on top of the display to give it better legibility in sunlight.
