Nokia's reborn Nokia 8110 is distinctive, easy to use and a lot of fun, although anyone used to a smartphone will find its limitations extremely frustrating.

The good

  • Eye-catching design
  • Works as a 4G hotspot
  • Simple operation

The bad

  • T9 text in a smartphone age is painful
  • Camera is ordinary at best
  • Pricey for a feature phone


The reborn Nokia 8110 can't – and doesn't – compete with a smartphone, but for the feature phone crowd, this is a great premium choice.

Nokia's rebirth, by way of licensing partner HMD Global, kicked off in 2017 with the surprise reappearance of the Nokia 3310, a classic design that had a lot of nostalgic appeal for anyone who was still keen on the Nokia brand.

2018 saw the Nokia 8110 get the redesign treatment, and the Nokia 8110 4G is finally available on Australian shores. It's a feature phone in 2018, which marks it out as unusual to begin with because the market for feature phones, as distinct from smartphones, is a niche one.

Still, within that niche, it's one of the nicest feature phones money can buy.

Design

  • Shaped like a banana, which is fun
  • Removable battery
  • Micro SIM compatible

Camera

  • 2MP camera is better than expected
  • That's not the same as "good" though

Performance

  • Predictably slow performance
  • T9 text entry makes me want to tear out hair I don't have
  • 4G hotspot functionality is super useful

Battery life

  • Great battery life if you keep it simple

Verdict

  • One of the best feature phones you can buy
  • Possibly a little pricey for its target market
  • Consider your budget smartphone alternatives at this price point
