Nokia's 6310 is back (but not as you know it)

We've seen a wave of nostalgia lately, from Sonic the Hedgehog Lego to Tamagotchi smartwatches, and now Nokia's getting involved. Along with two new smartphones, the Finnish brand is launching a revival of its classic flagship phone, the 6310 – which was about the best mobile phone money could buy in 2001.

HMD Global, which owns the Nokia brand, has come up with a remake that's as compact and cheap (reportedly around $50 / £50 / €40) as you'd expect. It also looks almost as indestructible as the original while offering improved readability and accessibility. However, it's taken a few liberties with the updated design (if you're looking for a more advanced phone, see our guide to the best camera phones available now.)
