We review a lot of phones; I get a lot of demonstration models, and get a lot of experience playing with the gadgetry. And I confess, it's probably made me more than a touch jaded about what goes into mobile phone. While I've (mostly) avoided the chaos and frustration of trying to integrate a smart phone into my life (and swapping it out when I have to return the demo model), I've grown accustomed to large numbers of megapixels on a camera, music player that uses all those standard formats, and come to accept them as standard features on a phone.
So reviewing the Nokia 3110 Classic mobile was something of a trip in a time machine. It brought me back to the days when a mobile was just a device to talk on, and had rudimentary caller ID features. Well, not quite.
The Nokia 3110 is what passes for a no frills phone, and it's remarkable how feature rich no frills is these days. While I wasn't expecting it, it has features like a built in FM radio, and a decent MP3 player, though you'll need to invest in a microSD card to store your music on.
It doesn't have a camera of any sort, but does have both bluetooth and IR support for connecting to remote headsets, or wireless connectivity - assuming you can figure out what you want to connect to, wirelessly. While Nokias usually have a good menu driven system, the smallish screen on this one was hard to read; it also referenced features that weren't on the mobile phone at all, which could cause some confusion and fuss.
Its got a solid, chunky design. It fits nicely in a pocket and is made very durable. You won't be worried about breaking it in usage, or by accidentally dropping it. The keys are large, and well placed for texting, though I'm a bit out of the prime texting demographic, having been taught grammar and sentence structure in school.
The primary selling point about this phone is the price - it's quite affordable, and is available on pay as you go plans with no contract. While I personally don't care about "mobile phone as fashion accessory", the Nokia 3110 is chunky enough that even I noticed it. My daughter, who normally asks to borrow any review models we get, never tried this one.
Which is, I suppose, an endorsement of sorts. It's one you can give your kids (provided you get an unlimited texting plan!) and not worry about where it ends up, or if it gets broken. All in all, we think Nokia's re-entry into the "commodity phone" market is an interesting venture, and they've packed more features than we expected into a nice enough package for the price.
