In 2017, however, no two phones have had quite as much attention as Samsung’s just-announced Samsung Galaxy S8, and Nokia’s absolute throwback phone, the Nokia 3310. We took some hands-on time with the Nokia 3310 back at Mobile World Congress 2017. Just for the sheer fun of it, how do the two most talked about handsets of 2017 compare?

Samsung Galaxy S8 vs Nokia 3310 3G: Analysis
This is, admittedly, a massively one-sided fight on more levels than you might appreciate. The S8’s specifications absolutely wipe the floor with the Nokia 3310, but then you’d expect that given the immense gulf in asking prices. You could buy a bunch of Nokia 3310 3G handsets for the price of one Galaxy S8, after all.
At that point, the asking price of the Galaxy S8, which works on 3G and 4G frequencies and will almost certainly expire well before both of those technologies are made redundant is undeniably the more sensible buy. If you’re still fixated on feature phones, however, we’ve rounded up the best non-3310 feature phones that will work on Australian networks for you already.
If your tastes run more in the smartphone direction, we've also compared the Galaxy S8 against the iPhone 7, the Galaxy S8+ against the iPhone 7 Plus and both new Galaxy S8/S8+ handsets against the cream of the Android handset crop.
