It’s still all-plastic, only smaller and lighter, than the original.The new Nokia 3310 comes with a camera. The 2-megapixel camera on the back of the new Nokia 3310 is nothing special to talk about.
the original Nokia 3310 shipped with a 900mAh battery, the new Nokia 3310 ships with a bigger 1,200mAh power pack. It is rated to deliver up to 22 hours of talk time and up to a month of standby on a single charge.
The Nokia 3310 was marketed largely on the shoulders of two aspects
- one being SMS chat
- the other being its long-lasting battery claimed to offer up to 4 hours and 30 minutes of talk time and up to 260 hours of standby time.
The durability aspect came only later, based on infinite number of (positive) use case scenarios.
