Reboots: they're not just for movies anymore! Nokia is reviving its famous 3310 feature phone—but will nostalgia alone drive sales? Naysayers argue nobody wants a brick phone anymore, that we've grown too accustomed to having tiny computers in our pockets. But the Nokia 3310 is famously indestructible, and some consumers pine for a time when phones didn't come equipped with every last bell and whistle, and could last weeks without recharging. Would you buy a 3310? 📞 📶

260 hours of standby battery, no need for a screen protector, Snake II....and (as numerous YouTube videos attest) you pretty much couldn't break the 3310 if you tried

They call it the “brick phone” for a reason. The engineer of the Nokia 3310 should be proud of the phone’s infamy as “indestructible.” This thing was tough. It could withstand countless falls and drops and WOULD. NEVER. BREAK. This isn’t an exaggeration. These things would be thrown against walls multiple times. Lit on fire. Dropped from ridiculous heights. 

Really? Reviving the brick phone? What's next, the VHS player? The Pony Express?

Could less be more? People may welcome a phone that you can just call and send simple texts from. At less than $70, the price is right on the rebooted 3310. And you can't underestimate the amount of love people have for this phone.

The ring tones alone will could make a comeback worth it!

Brick phones could be a liberating experience, freeing us from the constant need to check social media!

Others say nostalgia belongs in the past. Old technology isn't charming, it's annoying AF.
