Now HMD Global, the guys who now license the Nokia name since Nokia kinda stuffed that up, have decided it might be a good time to bring the iconic Nokia 8110 back with a few, more up-to-date features like 4G chucked in for good measure.

It would be unfair to compare the 8110 4G to a modern Android smartphone as that's not what it is trying to compete with. In some respects it isn't competing with anything except our own level of interest in a handset that's a modern take on an old classic. On those grounds, it does some things well...

The Nokia 8110 (2018 edition) is not one thing or another, it's kind of an in-between thing, if you will. What we mean by this is that you're not going to buy the device to replace your smartphone just because you like the retro design.

With the Nokia 8110 4G HMD has produced a much more capable retro phone than the equally nostalgic new 3310.

It would be unfair to compare the 8110 4G to a modern Android smartphone as that's not what it is trying to compete with. In some respects it isn't competing with anything except our own level of interest in a handset that's a modern take on an old classic. On those grounds, it does some things well (good battery life, ease of taking calls via the slider) and others less well (flimsy build and a screen that isn't great in bright sunlight).

The return of the 'banana phone' is a triumph

from Mirror

While it’s unlikely to replace your primary phone, it could be a great option as an inexpensive second phone - although expect some double-takes if you use it in public!

Hard to recommend as a value option

The Nokia 8110 4G seems like a viable purchase only for its coolness factor and hipster points, if you're into that kind of thing. And definitely not as a daily driver.

For those who find a smartphone too overwhelming

from Tech Advisor

It’s true that smartphones aren’t much more expensive, even the new Nokia 1, but that doesn’t stop the new 8110 4G from being an alluring phone. It’s different and fun while offering some modern features like voice calls over LTE and Wi-Fi hotspot.

The Matrix phone has been reloaded

from TrustedReviews

It might not be as iconic as the 3310, but the 8110 certainly leaves less of a sour cash-grab taste in my mouth. This has a few features that could genuinely make it a decent secondary phone, plus the design will bring a smile to your face.
