"Much like the original, the new Nokia 8110 4G has a curved protective cover you can slide open to pick up calls and slide back to end them. The unique shape also means you can spin the phone in ways you never imagined." I shit you not, that is actual verbatim copy from How is this a thing that anybody would care about to any degree at all? The statement is vacuously true by virtue of the fact that I have never imagined spinning *any* phone in *any* way, because I'm not *unhinged*.

@solderpunk I have been very skeptical about this phone. There is some kind of consensus in the GSM group, that 4G networks won't be accessible with phones without proper OS. So this thing has Linux and boots 50 seconds. Not what I think of when people say feature phone.

@logout Yeah, I have read many negative reviews about the slide-down cover as well, it does not seem to be a worthwhile purchase.

@logout Do you have any advice/recommendations on feature phones?

@solderpunk I have pre-selected myPhone Hammer 3 Plus for myself - 3G, dual SIM, able to create hotspot, tough, water resistant, FM radio without headphones. Now I'm convincing myself, that I don't need a smartphone :-)

@logout From "If Batman had a phone, he would probably use Hammer 3". I am not sure if this is more or less ridiculous thank Nokia's imaginary spinning. :p

@solderpunk it seems probable though, it's built like a tank. And btw. there's a difference between 3 and 3+, the plus is better.

@logout Yeah, sorry, I accidentally cut the + off, but the Batman quote was about the 3+.
