In this day and age, most mobile devices in the market are either over-powered or just plain huge. Some of the newer smartphones available right now even have display sizes as big as six inches. However, some users still prefer something a little less imposing and intimidating. That is why, even today, the market for small mobile phones is still very much alive and kicking. That said, the most talked about basic mobile phone right now is the Nokia 3310.
A few months ago, Nokia has unveiled the reimagining of the old mobile phone. Right now, the Nokia 3310 is available in the market for around $59. But perhaps the main question is, how does it compare to a similarly sized Android phone?
Early this month, a Kickstarter campaign was put online for the world’s smallest Android phone, the Jelly. The Jelly is a 2.45-inch smartphone that runs on Android 7.0 Nougat. And just like a standard Android phone, it has most of the needed features like 4G LTE as well as touch display.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the Nokia 3310. While both devices are priced the same, the Nokia 3310 is just that, a standard call and text mobile phone. It does not have the functionalities available on a standard Android phone. The main reason behind this is the fact that it does not run on Android. According to Nokia, the 3310 will run on the slightly modified Nokia Series 30+ operating system; basically a Symbian OS.
In terms of performance, the Jelly is a lot more powerful since it sports a quad-core processor running at 1.1GHz. Furthermore, the Nokia 3310 is a basic GSM mobile phone while the Jelly is a 4G LTE device.
The Jelly may be better than the Nokia 3310 in more ways than one. However, the latter brings with it the nostalgia; something that can only be done by something as iconic as the Nokia 3310. For more tech updates, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
