Nokia 3310

PS49.99 ***

One of the most highly anticipated mobile phones of the year is finally here - and it's a PS50 plastic device with an alphanumeric keyboard and 2G connectivity. First unveiled in February, the new Nokia 3310 from HMD Global is a throwback to the days when phones were "dumb" and the closest thing to an app was the game Snake.

The new phone mimics the design of the original handset, but is slimmer and lighter with a colour display and 2-megapixel rear camera. You can drop it on the floor without the screen smashing, and the battery lasts for up to a month in standby mode.

But despite its nostalgic appeal, the price is high for what is essentially an obsolete piece of technology. Web access is painfully slow and you can forget about maps and music. And if what you want is a burner phone to take on holiday or to a festival, there are plenty of cheaper options out there.
