Nokia for the nostalgic

If you never had the perfect highscore in Snake on the Nokia 6310, you now get the chance again.

The name Nokia alone evokes nostalgic memories in those of us who bought our first mobiles in the 90s. Which, of course, were Nokias.

As the same group is getting so old that finger-friendly buttons and READABLE TEXT are needed, Nokia has chosen to fulfill both the dreams and the needs at once – by relaunching one of the classics, the Nokia 6310. The original version came in 2001, and the new edition is true to the model, albeit with a slight facelift. And who can not need a facelift in that age?

This is far from the first time N0kia has played on nostalgia by relaunching old models. Most recently, it was the Nokia 6300 and Nokia 8000.

The press release describes the renewed Nokia 6310 as a “feature phone.” If so, these are selected features as it is completely devoid of smart features. It will neither run apps nor entertain you with YouTube (it would also be a nightmare on a 2.8 “screen). If you want entertainment, there is FM radio, MP3 player and – most importantly – the game Snake .

The rear camera of 0.3 megapixels ensures the true retro feel with small and grainy images. And of course there is no selfie camera. You know how your face looks – no need to brag about it!

Just like then, battery life should not be measured in hours, but in weeks!

Nokia 6310 will cost around GBP 60.

A little stick of dynamite

Zenfone 9 puts all the brand-name phones behind it with high-end performance at a premium price. And the camera is awesome.

The Fastest Phone

The Asus ROG Phone 6 Pro is big and expensive. And also the fastest phone we've seen.

Best iPad Air yet

The latest iPad Air almost takes iPad Pro's place as the best tablet on the market. Unfortunately, the screen is still based on old technology.

Same recipe for success as last year

The Sony Xperia 1 IV is not going to revolutionise the mobile market. But for geeks and semi-professionals, it's probably the best smartphone choice right now.

For the adventurer

Garmin knows how to combine smart and training. The new kid on the block is a premium multisport watch for active people who love adventure.

SUV with a moped engine

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro looks like a low-cost luxury phone. But while it has all the cool features, it lacks the power to utilize them.
