The all new Nokia 3310 comes with a wonderful designs, in number of vibrant colours and with amazing battery life. Without discussing much about 3310 (An article of Nokia 3310 is already present, you can take a look on that article for more details on 3310), I would move ahead with Nokia’s smartphone products.

But smartphones are broader in all sense. Its display, touchscreen technology, sensors, multimedia data (high definition and ultra-high definition), much more storage space and most importantly infinite number of applications which makes your life more convenient and easy going (talking in terms of work and to some extent socialising. Though the best way to socialise and communicate is without internet and smartphones medium and rather have a face-to-face communication).

Number of mobile phone makers are in the race of building and delivering wonderful handsets, with appealing designs be it in terms of its look and feel, in terms of the User interface of the device and many more.
