The revived Nokia 3310 under HMD Global had created a lot of buzz earlier this year. Unfortunately, being a 2G only device, its usage was severely limited to countries that still have 2G networks operating.
To expand its reach, HMD Global had released a newer Nokia 3310 3G which came with 4X the storage along with some minor design tweaks. For those who love the appeal of old-school feature phone but wished if it had faster connectivity, Nokia appears to be working on a 4G version of the Nokia 3310. A feature phone with 4G? Why would anyone bother?
Yes, the Nokia 3310 is back. It’s modern, it’s classic, it’s got Snake and a whole bunch of other features designed to take you on a trip down Nostalgia Alley. But I don’t like it and I doubt any self-respecting 3310 fan would either.
Nokia will be making a comeback next year with HMD Global taking the helm. Before the new year kicks in, the new company has just announced its new phones which isn’t much to shout about.
If your smart phone is low in battery, you can always count on a power bank to juice up while you’re on the go. Well, guess what? There’s actually a feature phone does the same job as well.
The Gphone BiGG claims to be the first ever Power Bank phone in Malaysia. Being a feature phone, it offers a standard 2.4″ colour display with dual-SIM card slots with 2G EDGE speeds for very basic internet usage. You’ll also get a rear camera, FM Radio, MP3 playback and even Bluetooth connectivity.
The biggest thing about this device is the battery which comes with a huge capacity of 2,200mAh. That’s encroaching high-end smart phone territory and as comparison, the previous HTC One (M7) embedded battery comes with just 2,300mAh capacity. To utilise this as a battery pack, there’s a full sized USB port at the sides where you can plug in your standard USB charging cables. The Gphone BiGG is quite cheap as well at just RM129 and it can be found on Lelong. Not bad for a feature phone which can be used for backup.
Now who says feature phones are dead? It could one day save your smart phone’s battery life.
