    I was excited by the news when they hinted at the re-release, but now it's launched I'm just not sold on it.

    I thought the deciding factor for the 'new' 3310 was going to be how physically tough it is but I was just reviewing that article and it mentions "It relies on 2.5G connectivity". How long is that environment going to last? The main provider here shutdown their 2G network late last year and the rest look to be closing down their own by the middle of/later this year. Granted, we're not a big market but plenty of big markets are closing down their 2G infrastructure within the next 12-24 months.

    On that basis alone I wouldn't buy one, right now I can buy a similar 'feature phone' (on 3G) for $15 - and that's in Australian Dollaroos, not even USD or GBP. I have to imagine bigger economies with stronger buying power have comparable, maybe even better, deals available.

    I think the main attraction in the 3310 was the shape/looks which was omgwtf for that time, battery life and the fact that it was a reliable phone. This new thingie looks kind of awful, looks brittle and the announced battery life doesn't really convince me.

    Plus what Sparq said, I already can't use plenty of my phones from my collection because they're 2G only and my network is 3G only.

    2G is here to stay in NL. We'll drop 3G before we ever drop 2G, because there are tons of devices (cars, alarm systems, electricity meters etc) that use 2G to communicate, even ones that are being installed right now. It's basically our IoT network.

    That said, fuck retro devices that can't do anything. I'm eyeing the new LG G6, wondering what it's price will be over here...

    It would seem stupid to release a 2/2.5G phone these days. I mean even if it had no features the old 3310 could be used as a hotspot, so the new one would benefit from a 3G/4G upgrade.

    Xperia X Performance GOT

    If only the fucking sony app transfer wizard would actually work. Not sure what's the issue, everything else can be transferred. Possibly because ye olden Z3C is rooted and on a customized stock rom.

    RIP App settings/data.

    Tricky. They're your kids, so they might have the sense to not repeat her mistake. But they're her kids too, so best not leave things to chance. Cut ties and move on.

    As for me, it's high time that I get my first smartphone. Trying to decide between a iPhone SE, a Samsung Salaxy S7, or a LG G6. Carrier is Sprint.

    Probably. Just last week, my dad managed to delete the phone icon on his HTC One while on vacation. Turns out, he fat-fingered the unlock, as the phone icon was right next to it. Thank you Sprint, for showing us how to fix it!

    Nothing complicated. GPS, texting, calling, light browsing, taking photos and videos, and maybe some music streaming. No Netflix or gaming, I use my desktop for that.

    I'm gonna suggest looking into motorola phones. They're fantastic and I never have any of the problems that plague my friends with their Samsung's. I've got the Droid Maxx2 which afaik is a Verizon Exclusive, so since you're on sprint you will be looking for the Moto G4 Play, or if you want a slider the Photon Q. Or if you want to buy an unlocked phone the Moto X Play is the same as the Maxx2

    I'm on an ancient workplace plan that hasn't offered Motorola phones for years. My choices are iPhone, LG, Samsung, HTC Bolt, and...Kyocera (shudder).
