Whether you’re off to a festival, going on a camping holiday, or working in environments hostile to smart devices, a simple, old-school, feature phone can be an excellent alternative. Feature phones offer basic multimedia and internet capabilities. Plus, there’s the added advantage of super-long battery life, not to mention prices that make them affordable as a spare or secondary handset; one to leave in the car in emergencies, perhaps.
HMD Global has continued the history of old Nokia while introducing some great Nokia smartphones to the market. These renewed feature phones are the greatest option for individuals wishing to acquire a gadget for regular communication and are quite the rage now. They make for a thoughtful and cool gift- a secondary device for the much-needed digital detox. They include a non-touch display and a keyboard with buttons for inputs that are plain in appearance. For those whose needs are basic, here is our pick of the ultra-affordable phones of this year. The listed devices are available on the Nokia website, retail, and e-commerce websites.
- Nokia 2660 Flip – Nokia 2660 Flip is the flip-phone designed to bring you closer to the ones you love. With a big display, easy-to-use interface, and long battery life, talking and texting have never been so easy. It’s easy to hear with loud audio settings and Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC). With the emergency button, you can contact a loved one instantly if the need arises. Listen with earphones or through the hands-free speaker and enjoy your favorite sport, music, or broadcasts at home or on the move.
- Nokia 5710 Express Audio – Your music, your rules. Nokia 5710 XpressAudio features our unique and game-changing design, purpose-built for new realms of audio freedom. The phone houses a pair of wireless earbuds beneath a sleek and robust slider – pop them out when you want to listen and put them back to charge when you’re done. And if you want to listen to music with friends, just switch to the phone’s loud speaker.
- Nokia 8210 4G – Inspired by yesterday, built for tomorrow. Nokia 8210 4G is a nod to its predecessor, bringing you even bolder design principles in an array of striking colors. Talking and texting is easier than ever thanks to crystal-clear audio, a big display, and an easy-to-use interface. The inbuilt MP3 player lets you store your favorite songs while the wireless FM radio lets you tune in to your favourite channels even without a headset.
