Nokia 8310 Review
The brand new Nokia 8310 is in my opinion, the worlds best phone.
Its features are jam packed, especially since it is such a tiny
little thing! It is about the same size as a Nokia 8210, but with amazing
features. For those of you who havent seen or heard of a Nokia 8310,
it is 98mm x 43mm, the smallest phone I have ever seen or held (which
is not a flip-out phone. It weighs just 84g too, which is very, very light!
The Nokia 8310 talktime is just as expected for any new Nokia phone, as
Nokia phones have a reputation of having long lasting talktime and standy
times. This phone has a standby of 100-300 hours, or 8 hours with the
radio on (yes, radio! See below) Its talktime ranges from 2 hours
15 minutes to 4 hours, which is very impressive.
Now, to the phones features. Firstly, the FM radio available on the phone.
You can listen to the radio whilst on the move with this phone, and you
can even do it whilst playing games, sending a text message, browse the
web or even answer incoming calls!
As with many other recent mobile phones, the Nokia 8310 has WAP, which
stands for Wireless Application Protocol. In other words, the phone has
mobile internet. You can check the latest football results, read the news
by the minute, play games, check cinema listings, and much more using
just your phone. But unlike most WAP phones, the Nokia 8310 supports GPRS,
meaning you get instant access to the net.
The Nokia 8310 has three voice features voice command, voice recording
and voice dialing. Firstly, voice command you can use voice command
to change profiles or to start the radio. With voice recording, you can
record a message up to 3 minutes in length. Lastly, voice dialing
you simply hold down the menu button and say the name of the person you
want to call, and you the phone will call them! You can have up to 10
names available for voice dialing. The Nokia 8310 is the worlds
first phone to have all three of these features in one, whilst many other
phones have just one or two of these features.
As with most Nokia phones, the Nokia 8310 has games to play. There are
3 games on this phone Bumper, Snake II and Pairs II. The only new
game is Bumper, whilst Snake II and Pairs II are already available on
other Nokia phones such as Nokia 3310.
There are 35 ringtones already available on the phone, and you can also
create up to 5 of your own ringtones. You can download these ringtones
from the internet, for example, you could have your favorite song or soap
as your ringtone! It is very easy to download a ringtone, as all you have
to do is key in the numbers on the screen. You can just go to a search
engine and type in something like free nokia ringtones and
a list of sites will come up. Alternatively, you can have someone else
send a ringtone to you whether it is your friend sending a ringtone
from their phone or a company sending you one (you call up the company
and tell them which ringtone you want; but calls cost about £1.50
The Nokia 8310 has a vibrating alert feature, so the phone will vibrate
when you get an incoming call or a text message. This is very handy when
you need to have your phone on in a quiet place eg. The cinema, as you
can set the phone to vibrate but have no ringtone/sound coming out of
it. Or you can have both on at the same time (ringtone and vibrating alert)
The Nokia 8310 phonebook stores up to 500 names enough for almost
anyone. Most phones have a 100 number memory, but this is just another
feature of the Nokia 8310 which adds to the others. You can also store
150 text messages and 50 picture messages, or any combination of these
two (eg. 200 text messages and no picture messages). If you are one of
those people who are sick of other people asking to see your phone, and
then finding that they read you messages, then this is the phone for you.
Why? Because the Nokia 8310 has message folders, which is unlike almost
all other phones, so your snoopy friends will only look in the inbox,
whilst you can simply save all your messages in another folder! Smart!
There is also a to-do list, which can store up to 30 memos, and calendar
notes, which you can store up to 250 notes on.
As I have mentioned, you can store up to 200 text messages and save them
in different folders. You can also use predictive text when writing a
message, which makes it very easy and fast to send a text message.
The thing that catches ones eye when they first see the Nokia 8310
is the covers. You can buy 9 covers for the Nokia 8310, and I am sure
that more unofficial ones will be released soon. The phone looks amazing
at a first glance, as the front cover has two different colours
making the phone look like it has 3 covers a top, a middle and
Other features on the phone include a calculator, stopwatch, countdown
timer, phone profiles, clock, alarm clock, currency converter, white lit
screen, 5 line text on screen (most phones have 4) and infrared applications.
<~ OVERALL ~>
Overall, the Nokia 8310 is a superb phone. With WAP, an FM radio, changeable
covers, a long lasting battery, voice recorder, huge memory and infrared
features, this phone is a must by for anyone its list of
features goes on, and it one of the smallest phones available in the world.
The only problem with it is the huge price you can currently only
buy it on contract, at £149.99 per month (plus you pay monthly for
at least a year), but if you buy it with no chip (offline, so you can
just put your pay as you go chip in it), you will be set back around £300!
