Ny saritaka momba for Snake, T9 soratra sady tsara tarehy efa niova endrika ny relaunch ny 3310 ho toy ny hetsika. Fa 2G fifandraisana sy ny fako fakan-tsary hitondra anareo tety an-tany indray
Ny hany malalako amin'ny Mobile World Congress sy ny teknolojia Retro mpankafy no farany eto, fa manao ny Nokia vaovao 3310 velona ny saritaka? Moa ve ny zava-drehetra ny raozy-tinted fahitana ny taona 2000 dia niantso izy noho ny?
Tsy zavatra maro no tena azo lazaina hoe "malaza", mainka tapa-teknolojia izay eto anio ka lasa rahampitso. Nokia tany am-boalohany 3310, fitiavan'Andriamanitra an'izao tontolo izao ny ho Snake, ny toa indestructibility sy ny fahatsorana, dia angamba tokony ho toy ny akaiky toy ny fitaovana mahazo.
Buttons - tsarovy ireo?
Ny "new" Nokia 3310 kokoa tahaka ny fanomezam-boninahitra ho any tany am-boalohany noho ny mahitsy-up remake. Toa toy ny tany am-boalohany fantapantany, noho ny loko manga sy fotsy rafitra, Boribory somary lavalava bokotra sy Nokia Logo. Fa ny lamba fanakonana - ankehitriny ny 2.4in QVGA loko biby - ary ny vatana dia lavitra kokoa, , fara fahakeliny, ao anatin'ny atỳ ny "candybar" endri-javatra an-tariby izay ho ao an-trano ao an-taona 2010.
Ny tonga indray eny, mba hanalana sarona ny removable bateria, micro-karatra SIM sy ny microSD slot - eto ianao no mila ny zokiny, karatra SIM kely habe lehibe kokoa, tsy ny ankehitriny Nano-sim, na, fara fahakeliny, adaptatera. Ny tafatoetra aloha, dia haka ny loko amim-pahendrena.
An-tampon'ny misy microUSB slot ho an'ny fahefana, izay midika hoe intsony Pin Nokia kely dovia, ary ny ambany manana zavatra na dia ny iPhone Apple 7 tsy afaka mirehareha: ny headphone Jack.
Dia ny lamba fanakonana ho maranitra tahaka ny Samsung Galaxy farany S8? No, tsy na dia akaiky. Fa ny tena mafy maro loko ary manana fijery marindrano mijery, raha tsy mitsangana ireo, ary afaka mamaky fotsiny momba ny ho any an-tokotany. Tsy misy na dia touchscreen, izay avy hatrany very hevitra ny olona sasany no naneho. Fa tsy manana bokotra (tsarovy ireo?), anisan'izany ny D-pad, mifidy, sakafo roa bokotra, miantso sy nahantona-ny bokotra sy ny 12 numeric fanalahidy.
Tsy tsotra toy ny antitra ny mifidy 3310, ny, nidina ary hanafoana ny bokotra, nefa izany dia tsy mihazakazaka rindrankajy mitovy na. ny vaovao 3310 mitantana vaovao Nokia-antitra Series 30+ miaraka amin'ny "vaovao rehetra-UI amin'ny nods ho any amin'ny tany am-boalohany" sy ny maro hafa ny safidy Fikarohana.

Herinandro eo fiampangana
ny vaovao 3310 tsy manana betsaka teny an-dalana ny fampisehoana, saingy haingana ampy ny maka tahaka ny zavatra Tsaroako avy ny taona 2000. Tsy Ho manao antso, send texts and has limited internet browsing capabilities. There’s no 4G, or even 3G connectivity, which means you’re stuck on 2G. Given everything else has moved on from 2G you’ve pretty much got the network to yourself, but it means long click-and-wait load times and inferior voice call quality, as 2G calling just isn’t as good.
There’s a quoted 16MB of storage (tsy misy, that’s not a typo), but in reality only 1.4MB is user accessible as the rest is taken up by the operating system and the included apps. Everything else needs a microSD card, including downloading java apps and games. It’s actually quite disappointing given that £50 buys you 500 times the storage (8GB) in a tablet. I managed to fill up the storage with five photos. Best buy a microSD card with it.
Battery life is measured in days rather than hours, and with pretty much constant use I dropped less than a quarter of the battery a day. Regular usage for calls, texts and a bit of basic web browsing will probably last at least a week. Nokia says the new 3310 lasts a month on standby.
Text like it’s the year 2000
Apps, lalao, music and video. Nokia vaovao 3310 does barely anything. You can forget Spotify, or anything like Clash of Clans, Candy Crush or Super Mario Run, but it does have a new version of Snake and the facility to download other java games if you have a microSD card.
Out of the box you’ve got MSN Weather, an MP3 player, an FM radio, a calculator, alarm clock, fameram-potoana, fanisan'ora, unit converter, a voice recorder, a note app, calendar and contacts. There’s also a browser called Opera Mini and the Opera app store.
Opera Mini is the standout here: it’s quite amazing what it can do given it’s running on this tiny, 2G phone. YouTube? Yep. The Guardian? Yep. Gmail? Yep, although you can’t attach photos or other files. Facebook, Twitter and most other websites work, in one form or another. It might take ages, and be incredibly tedious moving the mouse around with a D-pad, but it gets there.
There’s no WhatsApp or similar though. So you’re mostly stuck with SMS, but then that’s the point, marina?
Texting is like being back in the 2000s, T9 predictive text and all. After about an hour I was right back up to speed, koa. Unfortunately that speed was glacial. It took a very long time to bash out simple messages that take seconds with a virtual keyboard.
Some things may have been better in the good old days, but messaging friends wasn’t one of them. I got hand cramp almost instantaneously.
Oh yes, ny 3310 has Snake, although it looks nothing like what I remember. By default it’s set to a timed mode, rather than out-and-out survival (the mode everyone remembers). There are power-ups and bombs, and it defaults to diagonal movement, rather than right-angles, izay, frankly, is cheating.
It’s quite fun, and I did get a nostalgia hit out of it, but I quickly remembered how much better Monument Valley dia.
ny vaovao 3310 has all mod cons including a two-megapixel camera. It snaps photos, can shoot video. It even has a zoom.
But the photos are pretty bad. They look OK on the phone’s screen, but get them off on to another smartphone or computer and they look like an impressionist water painting version of what you thought you were taking a snap of, rather than a photo.
There’s no selfie camera, but it’s not too difficult just to turn the phone around and point it at your face.
- The predictive text is a bit of a mystery to me. It had “lol” (which I’m sure wasn’t a thing in 2000) but didn’t have the name “Samantha” in its dictionary
- The speaker on the back is surprisingly loud
- The navigation D-pad is really quite fiddly and difficult to use without accidentally hitting the select button
- The screen is a fingerprint magnet, but then you’re not meant to touch it (even though I constantly did)
- It’s easy to fit in a pocket, but it’s quite thick for a phone these days
- Getting contacts on it is pretty easy using Bluetooth Slam with an Android phone – just turn on Bluetooth and put them near each other. The same works for sending photos
Nokia vaovao 3310 costs £50 and comes in four colours.
Many of Nokia’s similar phones, such as the Nokia 150, cost under £35.
Nokia vaovao 3310 hanatanterahany ny zavatra maro haniry izany ho. Tena fototra finday amin'ny endri-javatra fototra eo amin'ny zava-baovao, nostalgic akorany. Ny bateria fiainana lehibe, dia manao antso sy Opera Mini no mahagaga afaka ao am iray tsy finday avo lenta.
But if you thought things were better in the days of the pre-touchscreen smartphone, you’ll find out within minutes that they simply weren’t. Texts take ages to write, you get hand cramp in the process, and you’re not even really, truly disconnected from the internet world. You can check your email, so you have no excuse not to.
If you really want a dumbphone for the odd occasion, and don’t mind paying over the odds for one, buy it. You’ll love looking at it more than actually using it, but then you’re probably not planning to use it much. But if you’re looking for an emergency phone, or something disposable, Nokia makes loads of much cheaper versions of the same idea. They’re just not branded 3310.
Mahatsara: week-long battery, headphone Jack, microSD karatra slot, removable battery, fakan-tsary, flash/torch, Snake
Maharatsy ny mifampiresaka: tedious T9, lafo, no Spotify, not many apps, 2G-only
