Nokia 3110 Evolve Review
In a nutshell: This is a great entry-level phone from Nokia. A classic user-friendly design, built to last and with excellent battery life, it will get on with the job without any trouble. It includes a camera, MP3 player and FM radio and has the benefits of an expandable memory card, Bluetooth connectivity and triband. The 3110 offers exceptional value for money. The 3110 Evolve is the same as the 3110 Classic, but has environmentally-friendly street cred too.
Review: January 2008.
The Nokia 3110 Evolve is exactly the same as the Nokia 3110 Classic, except that it incorporates environmentally-friendly aspects into its design and manufacturer. In particular, it has the following eco-friendly features:
OK, so it's not going to single-handedly reverse global warming, but it's a start. Not many people realise that if you leave a phone charger plugged in, it consumes energy even if the phone isn't connected to it. Perhaps if the chargers had a label on them telling people this, then more people might realise it. Anyway, you should always unplug or switch off your phone charger when not in use. But if you forget or can't be bothered, then the 3110 Evolve will do a little bit to help.
Now, let's applaud Nokia and say that being environmentally friendly is a Good Thing, etc, etc. But you know, we can't help being a teeny weeny bit cynical. Mobile phones aren't great for the planet, especially when most of us buy a new one every year and chuck the old one in the bin. The single most important thing that any of us can do with regard to mobile phone ownership is to recycle our old phone when we replace it with a new one. Nokia seem to be trying to make a difference here, but they could have made all of their phones like this. Instead they've created one environmentally-friendly phone, which kind of draws attention to the lack of progress in all the other phones that they make. We also have this sneaking suspicion that the 3110 Evolve isn't going to be easy to buy, and that most people will buy the 3110 Classic, which is flooding into the shops and is looking to become a best-seller. Time will tell.
