The 8110 was fashionable and one in town when it was launched decades ago, but now to use it might look out of place but with the rebranding give to it, this device once again is eyes catchy and trendsetting.
Putting the device side by side with the old model, you will agree it looks much like the original, however, 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. if you are of the old era and you want your old 8110 back then am sorry to burst your ego but the new 8110 is by no means a carbon copy of the 20-year-old handset that inspired it, though, they share the same banana-shaped design and sliding cover, but the stubby antenna of old is now gone coupled with many more upgrades.
