The new Nokia 3310 is now available in multiple countries around the world. With a refreshed design and added features, consumers need not much convincing to buy a cheap phone with very basic functions. The brand speaks for itself and the model number brings back memories of the good old days when a drop would not worry owners that much.
The original Nokia 3310 remained popular throughout the decades for being as tough as a rock. Does the new version do it justice? Let’s find out.
New Nokia 3310 Drop Test
Upon getting a Nokia 3310 unit, BusinessInsider just had to test its durability. Nowadays, a drop from three feet can wreck an ultra expensive smartphone. Will it do the same to the successor of the legendary phone?
Of course not. First of all, the Nokia 3310 does not have enough screen real estate that would make it more susceptible to shattering. Second, falling at the height of a pocket should not be a big deal to the handset.
