3. Battery Life:
While our current smart phones struggle to survive even for a day, the Nokia reboot is set to be following the original Nokia 3310’s path which would go one for a week with battery issues or more at times if you are lucky!
Being the most popular phone had it’s perks, almost every one had a charger or even better, the simple battery allowed it to be easily removed and swaped.
4. Indestructible, literally:
Imagine throwing the current smart phones on the floor, accidentally stamping or scratching them! I know, I know we all have our “Oh, noooooooo” faces on trying to save the great fall.
But the Nokia 3310 was the sturdiest phone of the era, with holding even a throw on the brick wall ! The legendary phone required no screen guards for longer life.

Our beloved phone originally offered an option to customize your own ringtone and store up to 7 of them. It is now rumoured to have its memory boost up and expandable.
7. Colour, colour:
The Nokia 3310 came up in several colours unlike the boring, monotonous colours of the current smart phones. The shells could be replaced and changed, available in varied colours.
8. Target Audience:

It shall focus on the audience looking for the basic utilities which do not run away due to battery issues and app stampede.
9. Additional features:
