The Nokia 3310 was a popular Nokia mobile phone and was the successor to the immensely popular Nokia 3210.

The 3310 is a compact but somewhat heavy (133 g) phone featuring an 84 x 48 monochrome display. It has a lighter 115g battery variant which has fewer features; for example the 133g battery version has the start-up image of two hands touching while the 115g version doesn't.
It is a slightly rounded rectangular unit that is typically held in the palm of a hand, with the buttons operated with the thumb. The blue button is the main button for selecting options, with "C" button as a "back" or "undo" button. Up and down buttons are used for navigation purposes. The on/off/profile button is a stiff black button located on the top of the phone. It has a very sturdy design which was a big contribution for its success.
