The shape has been rounded and smoothed out for a more modern feel.

The rebooted model updates the iconic design, reimagining the familiar midnight blue color scheme and swooping silver-grey design.

The slimline 3310 is much thinner than the original, slipping easily in your pocket.

The new phone brings with another reinvented classic: Snake. The fiendishly hard game is now in colour.

The 3310 is a fairly basic feature phone, so don't expect all your smartphone apps.

The 3310 has basic features like calling and texting, but it's not even 3G, so your web browsing options are severely limited.

The back comes off to get at the battery, but unfortunately you can't swap fascias like you could with the original phone.

It charges by Micro-USB, so no more wandering round your friends' houses asking, "Anyone got a Nokia charger?"
