a nostalgia trip too far
HMD had a hit on its hands with the new Nokia immagini di cover per iphone 4s 3310 from last year, which was a surprisingly charming dumbphone that cost slightly more than other basic Nokias because of the name.
The re envisioned Nokia 8110 4G goes further, but not necessarily for the better.
For those who never had the original 8110 in 1996, it was custodia tablet samsung a6 t585 a curved custodia iphone 7 128gb mobile with a slider, whose primary claim to fame was being dropped out of an office block window by a clumsy Keanu Reeves in the 1999 sci fi blockbuster.
The 2018 version displays only a passing resemblance to the original. Gone is the stubby aerial and small monochrome screen, replaced with a larger, colour cover iphone 6s desigual screen and shorter slider. The keypad doesn’t look anything like the original, either. You could say that only the name is the same.

The curved back comes off to expose the battery, custodia iphone 6 ip68 two sim slots and a microSD slot. The manual slider exposes the keypad and unlocks the phone, but doesn’t contain the phone’s microphones so it’s really only there for aesthetic purposes.

The display is colourful, but low resolution and not a touchscreen it’s all buttons, all the time for this little Nokia. The screen’s plastic coating is a serious fingerprint magnet, and even at 100% brightness it’s custodia cover iphone 7 8 se2020 difficult to see the display outside.
The button configuration and menu system is the same as last year’s new 3310. A select button is ringed by a D pad and flanked by two action keys, a call and a custodia s9 samsung originale hangup/back cover samsung galaxy s10e button. Below is a standard custodia powerbank samsung 12 button dial pad, of which the last row is surprisingly difficult to press because of the slider.
The Nokia 8110 4G runs KaiOS, which is a cover apple iphone xr sort of dumbphone smartphone migliore cover iphone 6s plus hybrid. It looks and behaves like the old series 30, but has things such as an app store, Google Assistant, YouTube, Google Maps, email, cover x iphone 6 a browser and, of course, Snake.
Google Assistant works surprisingly well, YouTube works just about, and you can even sync your Google or Outlook contacts, if you can face typing out your password cover iphone 6 spigen using the numeric pad, which took me the best part of 10 minutes.
Google Maps is there custodia a libro per samsung s6 edge complete with GPS but you’re not going to want to use this as your primary navigation tool. Photograph: samsung galaxy s8 hoesje custodia x samsung a40 Samuel Gibbs/The Guardian
Google t shirt pokemon Maps is slow custodia in pelle samsung galaxy s4 but usable too, while the browser can just about handle sites like the Guardian.
Despite having an app store, there’s no WhatsApp (although apparently it’s coming), Facebook Messenger, Snapchat, Instagram, Uber or Spotify. There is Twitter though, if you can bear it.
Bashing out messages is about as tedious as you can expect using the cramped T9 keypad, but it can be done, which is pretty much the experience of the whole phone most things can be done with enough patience…
