Boy oh boy, Phones have come a long way since 20 years ago but even before Apple amazed the world with the iPhone here are some phones that we used to adore that were known for being simple, durable and long battery life.









1.Nokia 3310

A phone knows for its durability back in 2000, where you can throw it anywhere and the phone would not receive a single scratch as compared to phones these days. This gem sold over 126 million worldwide, had features such as calculator, reminder function, stop watch which were not seen in phones in that time. The battery life was out of this world with 260 hours of standby time and you didn’t even need a screen protector. Also one of the reasons we loved this phone was for the games, being Snake, OH the nostalgia.

Back in 2004, this was the phone to have with its slim design (.55”thick) and flip capabilities. As the got phone got more and more popular Motorola decided to add more colors to the phone. This phone had an external screen which displayed notifications of incoming calls, text messages, missed calls and the time.
