Nokia's new 3310 may have similar looks to the classic model released 17 years ago, but the new version has a few key additions -- most notably, a camera on the back.

It's only a 2-megapixel affair, and with an expected retail price of around £40 ($49, AU$65) I wasn't expecting performance to rival the iPhone 7. Still, I wanted to see what this camera was capable of so I headed out into Barcelona to find out.

It's important to note that there are only seven example images in this gallery. Why? Because that's all that the phone can hold, unless you use a microSD card. It's not exactly geared up to be a photographer's handset.

This first shot of some pretty flowers isn't exactly brilliant. Colours are muted and the white flower petals in the middle have been overexposed.

This street scene isn't bad at all though -- the people are sharp, the colours are accurate and the street itself has been exposed well.

Down on the Barcelona Metro, the camera has opted for a very odd white balance. It's given our video producer Celso a sickly green colour cast, which I don't remember him having in real life.

There are a small handful of image effects, including sepia and a variety of colour tones.

I like this black and white shot -- without colour, you can't tell if the white balance has worked or not and the noise of the image gives it an almost film-like effect.

There's no front-facing camera for selfies. Instead, you have to simply turn the phone round and hope that you're in shot. I wasn't.

The colours are weak on these roses, and the details are fuzzy too. Still, for such a cheap phone it's not bad.

A successful selfie here. White balance is just about right, and the exposure is fair as well. There's a lack of detail to the scene, but that's probably not a bad thing for my face.
