As one of the oldest mobile phone company specializing in feature and smartphones, Nokia always finds a way of providing customers with the best of both worlds. Their products are very durable with the best of features designed to give optimum use and satisfaction. The feature phone, Nokia 8110 was first released in 1996 as the first of the then high-end 8000 series. It was classy and distinctive with design and shape. In an attempt to incorporate modern smart technology into the classic feature phones, the brand has successfully recreated this phone into a new standard model and a 4G model.
The phone is designed in a distinctive curved manner that earns it the names- banana phone or matrix phone. The curved case takes the form of a landline phone bringing the microphone at the base of the phone closer to the mouth. The phone was the first to have a 2.4” monochrome graphic LCD screen which has now been greatly improved upon to have 240x320 pixels resolution with 167ppi density. It has an alphanumeric keypad below the screen. It has a sliding cover which covers the keypad and also has the microphone grilles. Sliding the cover down while on call brings the microphone to the mouth level. The sliding open of the cover turns the screen on and would also answer a call and the ability to end the call with the closing of the cover give that banging-the-call feeling. The back of the 4G model has a camera, flash, and speaker set-up. The phone is fully cased in durable plastic, which promises longevity.
The phone is equipped with the dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 205 and Adreno 304 GPU clocked at 1.1GHz. It uses the KaiOS smart feature operating system laced on 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory storage, expandable to up to 32GB using a dedicated microSD card slot. It has a removable 1500mAh Li-Ion battery that has a standby time of up to 25 days on the single sim variant and 17 days on the dual sim model. It has a basic 2mp rear camera with LED flash.
One of the most obvious improvements on this phone is the support of the 4G LTE band. You can now surf the internet, chat, and stream faster on this feature phone. It supports Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, that allows you to stay connected to any other device.
