- Lightweight, fun design

we had our first look at Nokia 8110 4G a few months ago, and has some pretty positive first impressions, but now after using it for a while we’re not as high it .
we are nasphones.com and this is our Nokia 8110 4G Review .
our Nokia 8110 4G comes in black, and if it’s packaging reminded you of a toys well it’s sort of fitting, because the phone looks and feels like what .
it’s made of plain cheap feeling plastic, sliding down the cover, reveals the numeric keypad and also activates the phone, the same motion will also answer calls .
there is a bit of friction though and the slider feels stiff and uncomfortable to use, we would have preferred a smoother mechanism or even a spring-loaded one .
there is no touch screen here on navigation is own with the physical keys, there’s nothing bad about that but the buttons all feel mushy, and are a bit too close together to be convenient to use .
the back is curved given the Nokia 8110 4G is characteristic banana shape, so this phone is the nostalgia factor, the original Nokia 8110 was his time .
even starring in some feature films, but despite his IP 52 rating the legendary for Nokia 8110 4G is not nearly close to living up to his predecessors solid and durable build .
it’s just not very resistant to scratches and scuffs, our started looking dinged up just after a week of using it, the 2.4 inch LCD is also easy to scratch, it’s a shame, you shouldn’t have to buy a screen protector for a phone like this one .
for audio the phone has a rear mounted speaker, it’s extremely loud but also very poor in quality, almost every sound gets distorted .
you can plug your headphones into the 3.5 millimeter jack instead, but with four gigs of internal memory you won’t be able to store too many songs, luckily there’s an FM radio .
with 4G in the name this phone comes well geared in the way of connectivity, there are plenty of options including Wi-Fi, bluetooth 4.1, GPS, volte and LTE .
but our good online experience needs decent app support, not just a good connection and sadly here the Nokia 8110 4G falls short .
you do get some google apps such as Google search YouTube and Google Maps there’s Google assistant too, but besides that the native app store only offers Twitter and weather, and some simple games .
that’s it there is no other social networking app and there is no messaging app, also we frequently saw some slowdowns while using the available apps and switching quickly between them led to noticeable stutters in the UI too .
it’s perhaps understandable, as the phone runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 205 chipset and has 512 megabytes of RAM, for single tasks like video playback it were surprisingly well .
but you should forget about any sort of multitasking or playing more advanced games in the preloaded snake .
the Nokia 8110 4G has a 1500 milliamp hour battery, we weren’t able to run our standard test routine but we were able to get 10 or 11 hours of web browsing or calling on a single charge .
I’d expect more from a future phone now, also recharging this battery is quite slow, a full charge took me more than three hours .
the banana phone has a single fixed focus camera which weighs in at 2 megapixels, it can only shoot in one orientation so you have to turn it sideways to get a landscape photo, here’s what the general quality of the shots looks like .
and here’s a video recording sample at 720 by 480 resolution, as you can see is not a phone you’d buy for his camera quality, at least a frame rate is pretty steady at around 30 fps .
so, the Nokia 8110 4G, it brings a cool retro vibe and plenty of connectivity options, but unfortunately beyond that there’s not much good to say about this phone .
it’s not as first it was a smart phone and yet it’s more expensive and more fragile than your average feature phone, so unless you’re really in it for the nostalgia or you really love bananas, you should probably pass on this one .
