Nokia 3410 review
|Review: March 2003|
In a nutshell: The Nokia 3410 was the replacement for the hugely-popular Nokia 3210/3310/3330 series.
Featuring an updated front panel design, the 3410 is the same size as the older Nokias, but lighter.
The Nokia 3410 has all of the features that made the 3210/33xx so popular - downloadable ringtones, Xpress-on™ covers and great ease of use. The 3410 features Java games and is lighter too.
The 3410's Java capability means that you can download games just as easily as downloading ringtones or graphics.
WAP push allows you to subscribe to information services like news, sport and entertainment - you will then receive text messages which contain a link to a WAP page, so you can browse in more detail if you wish.
The main defect of the 3410 is the joined-up keypad.
Nokia 3410 features include:
- WAP (featuring WAP push)
- Predictive text messaging
- Picture messaging and picture editor
- Mobile chat
- 35 ringtones plus 7 customisable ringtones
- High resolution 4-line display
- Speed dialling
- Downloadable Java™ games and applications
- Animated 3D screen savers
- Phonebook (200 names)
- Changeable front and back covers
- 5 games - Space Impact, Bantumi, Snake 2, Bumper, Link 5
- Calendar, stopwatch, alarm clock, currency converter
- Size: 115 x 49 x 22 mm
- Weight: 114g
- Battery standby: 55 - 260 hours
- Battery talktime: 2 - 4 hours
- Dual band

If calsberg made phones it would have been this one. It's a hard working ultra tough no nonsense phone. I had one for 10 years working in the construction industry before it finally died from of years of abuse. People mocked me for it but had no worries if I dropped it would be perfectly fine. Then i would ask them to do the same with their new fancy smart phones costing an arm and a leg you should see the panic in their faces. Who's mocking now. Been using a nokia 115 for 2 years and its dire, so just ordered another old faithful 3410.
For me its the best phone in the world.

The most durable phone I have ever had. Even in 2010 it can still compete with the modern phones in terms of receiving and transmitting signals, downloading ringtones and games, and battery life( even in 2010 I am still using the same battery that I got with the phone in 2004). It has exceeded all that it was designed to do.

I've been using the Nokia 3410 as a T-Mobile PAYG for 5 years or so, and think it's great. I use it mainly for text, but phone quality is good too. Black & white small screen is a bit out of date for 2009, but it's functional. When texting, using symbols such as £ someimes gum up the processor for 15 seconds, but otherwise it's ben 100% reliable. It's sturdy, but slightly heavy and thick by modern standards, and won't work in America. Case makes it really quite bulky. The games are limited but fun. Battery has finally packed up, so rather than buy a new relatively expensive Nokia battery I'm moving across to a cheap, light, slim Sony Ericsson MP3 phone with colour screen, camera etc. We'll see if I'm as happy with that after 5 years as I am now with the Nokia!

Just a little note to inform anybody still reading this that www.eurobatteries.com sell 1800mAh high-power batteries for the 3410 which last almost two weeks after the initial couple of cycles. Mine has been bombproof since I got it. If you don't need cameras or any of the other accoutrements so prevalent today, this phone will be adequate. As always, I recommend reading the manual and buying as befits your needs.

Having used Nokia 3410's for many years, I recently paid £200 for a JCB toughphone, which has turned out to be a big disapointment. I am now going to buy another 3410, in my opinion the best basic phone ever made. I know the younger ones will laugh at me with their advanced technology wafer thin biscuits which dont last 2 mins, but I know the 3410 will withstand all the rigours of a contractors pocket, somethiong the JCB has failed miserably on after only 6 weeks has a screen so scratched i can hardly read it

I had this phone for a year i think, I can't remember. Anyway I got given this phone by my mum in 2005/6 who had had it for 3 years before me. The pros of this phone is it is very reliable, if you want a simple phone that is easy to use and not gimmicked then this is the phone for you.The 3410 never broke while I had it(it is vurtually indestructable by accidents), nice to hold, and the big buttons help to eliminate the problem of hitting the wrong button .The cons are it is slow to turn on, the joined keypad can make texting quite hard because it sometimes puts in the next key to the one you press.It takes a long time to charge(i night!)Apart from that it is a very nice phone and it was still in originalcondition and original working condition when i gave to a freind at the end of the year!These phones are the workhorse of the Nokia fleet they last for AGES!!!

I don't want to fiddle about trying to surf the net on a mobile phone with a tiny screen. I do that on my laptop in comfort. I don't want to take pictures with a mobile phone camera with a pathetic pixel count. I use a proper digital camera with 10MP and an excellent lens. What do I want a mobile phone for? To make phone calls and send texts. This phone does that. I've had mine for four years now and haven't even had to buy a new battery. It's boring perhaps, but there are more interesting things in life than gimmicky mobile phones. (p.s. Changing your mobile with every new model isn't good for the environment. Save your money for something worthwile.)

The battery life is brilliant, as i've had it on for about a week without charging, and overall call quality is pretty OK. However, i don't know if it's just my network, but it's extremely quiet even when I put it up to the highest notch in volume. Overall, a decent entry-level phone, but I'm gonna get meself a camera one, thanks!

I've had this phone for 3 years now, and have had no problems whatsoever with it. It's reliable and easy to use, with a brilliant signal, and a fantastic battery life. The sound quality when speaking to someone (or listening to them) on the phone is faultless.It seems to be virtually indestructible - I have lost count of the amount of times I have dropped it without any damage being caused. It's true that the 3410 doesn't have all the latest features that some other phones have, but that's not really what (or who)the phone is designed for. There are quite a few other functions on the phone that are both practical and useful, but the bottom line is this: the 3410 makes and receives calls, and sends texts. That is its primary function, and it does both extremely well. Considering that's the main job a mobile phone is supposed to do, I don't really think it can be faulted. If you want a functional, reliable phone that does the job a mobile is really designed to do, go for this. I highly recommend it.

This is a good phone for someone who isn't into phones and wants something simple. You can get pincodes on it but if you forget it you only have three tries to get it right before the sim card locks itself which i find very annoying. I am now geeting a 3200 so i hope that will be good. however it is not a good phone for someone who wants everything in a phone (colour screen, amazing graphics on games, easy to fit in to your pocket e.t.c) as this phone is big black and white screen and the games are dull and boring. i have had this phone for a year now and am pleased with it but now want something new!!!!!

I have had my Nokia a little over 7 months. It was fine for a while, but then the battery started to run out very quickly (I hadn't over-charged it) and the signal is appalling - I know that this isn't down to my area as the coverage in my region with T-Mobile is actually rather good. Several colleagues in my office use T-Mobile and when my signal is at 1 or nothing their signals are at full-power. I blame it totally on the phone and feel that buying it on special offer was a big mistake, it isn't the bargain I thought it was going to be. I don't want all bells and whistles but I do want a phone that gets a signal when I leave the house.

It is a good phone, does everything a phone does but i really don't like the monophonic ringtone sounds and the screen colour is so boring and dull. Oh well, it doesn't bother me anymore since mine broke and now i have the excuse to buy a nice flashy Samsung E700 camera and colour screen phone (highly recommended). But anyway, if there is anyone looking for a basic phone without all the ridiculous gadgets then the 3410 is for you. If you are like me however and you highly appeal to these ridiculous gadgets then get a different phone, Samsung E700 is a good phone for gadgets though.

The 3410 is a phone at the end of the day, i use it to call people when i am out i use it to text all these functions it does with no fuss and it does it well, i have had the phone for 18 months and it is allways on me l would say i am a moderate user and find it easy a quick to use, i have had a so could flashy phone that i upgraded to but swaped back to my 3410 after a month becouse i could not cope with the new phone being fidily and complecated and unreliable all i want to do is call and send text messages quickly and simply and the 3410 does this, the phone is reliable battery life is still good and signal strenth is better than most more expensive mobiles, i can not fault the 3410 if you just want a mobile phone that will keep you in touch with family and friends when out, this is the one to choose i think it is still available to bye on the internet but i have not seen it in the shops for a while, in the time i have had my 3410 it has given me no problems at all 100% r eliable unlike my upgrade that broke after i sent my first text message, all i have had to do with my 3410 is replace the cover (and that is becouse i liked the look of the black and white cover from nokia)if you want to play games take pics send e-mails or what ever else you want to do then no it is not a good phone for the indervidual but this does not make it a bad phone like some of the comments on the review site, but if you want a device to use to ring home when you are late or use in a emergency or even a quick chat with a mate it is ideal, a mate of mine has a what i call a flashy phone and i have lost count the amount of times he has used mine to call the misses becouse his phone had no signal (we are on the same network and in the same area) or droped a call or battery has died the 3410 is allways there and allways working, so allround a top mobile phone.

its a standard nokia. better than the 3310 and 3330. it still lacks some stuff. e.g. color screen , camera , and poly ringtones. it has none of these. if u want a phone just for talkin and txtin then this will be ok. if u have the money buy a camera phone. 6230. if you can afford it. if not 7250 or 3200. they are cheap now.

when i was looking up a load of phones for my birthday in 2003,i liked this nokia 3410. At that time, I wasn't too bothered whether it was colour or not. In a way I wanted the Nokia 3510i as it was a pretty nice colour phone. But my parents said no. The features are adequate; 6 games including Snake II and Space Impact. The ringtones are a bit boring, but there are loads and you can make ones up. It is really easy to use, but not many features. Some non-colour phones such as the Nokia 1100 has a good feature like soft keys and even a little flashlight! And the Trium 110 has polyphonic ringtones and a loudspeaker and its only about B#29.99 at most shops. After a while something kept making it turn off automatically until i realised that some of my screensavers and picture messages had gone. Even the ringtones I made and the games were mucked up. Bumper wouldn't work and high scores on all the games wouldn't work. But anyway if you a re on a cheap and tight budjet this phone would be ok to get.

I have had this phone for just over a year. There is nothing special about it, I mean it does what a phone needs to do, but that is all. I am now looking to upgrade to the Sharp GX15. Overall the Nokia 3400 does whatit has to, but it is so out of date now. P.S. On my phone: the down application is missing! (On the menu screen, i goes 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9) The whole downloading application is missing!! If any one knows any thing, please let me know, on this site!!

I think this phone is fab. I've had mone for 2 years and am still entertained with it. It's like 'Ronseal= it does exactly what it says on the tin.' it's the no frill phone which suets me fine and using it's a pleasure. the key pad is easy to use; it's not so small that your fingers creep onto each button, it's robust and has surrvived falling dawn the stars twice, the tumbledrier, water spilages and much more. Ontop of all of that it's got enough to keep you interested with the fantastic verity of games and ringtones avadible. no it's not amazing compared to other phones today but it's great and i would recommend it 100%.

After breaking my 3310, I decided to go a step further and buy the 3410. After all it looked attractive and it had some good reviews. After getting it home, it looked nice and it was very pleasent to feel. However, the keys lit up like some cheap plastic things. I expected quality keys like the 32/3310 phones. Also, the menus are quite complicated and you have to go through about 3 screens just to a game. The ringtones are good, but they're also hard to get too. And if you're a Snake 2 lover, stay well away. It goes nowhere near as fast as other Snake versions and it takes ages to finish. There's also no blip sound as it eats the food. I also dislike the keys, which look as if they've been melted into each other. I didn't think I would mind them to begin with, but when I'm alone with it, I just think "you're so ugly!". I can't take any pride in having it and I miss my 3310. As you flip through the phone's menu, it's as if it goes in a slower motion to previous Nokias. It's we ird and hard to describe. The phone looks deceivingly expensive, but in reality, it's like a cheap toy.

Why are some people moaning about this phone? Its a no-frills phone as someone said. Its not made to impress its made to make and receive calls and texts. I had this fone for about 6 months before I go my 8310. I still have my old 3210 aswell as a spare which I also thinki is a great fone. Games? I have a ps2. Pictures? I have a digital camera for my PC. People want fones to fo everything these days. Why? A phone is for talking on. By the way im 22 not 67 in case i sound it lol.

I've had this phone for over 2 years now and what can I say - brilliant!!! I've had no problems what so ever in all the time I've had it. The battery life is amazing - I can leave it off charge for about 3 - 4 days still using it frequently! It's simple and easy to use and I would reccommend it to any one that just needs it for getting in touch with people. The games also keep you entertained!

The 3410 is a great, albeit basic, phone. It does all I want it to do, namely make voice calls and send and receive texts. If I wanted to take pictures I would buy a Nikon SLR. If I wanted to play games I would buy a Gameboy. The 3310 was a wonderful workhorse. The 3410 is just a tweaked 3310 with WAP. But WAP is pants and actually I don't know why Nokia bothered to mess with the 3310. It was fine phone and should have been left alone.

I've had this phone for about a year, about there isn't anything particualy special about it. It's a basic phone. If you're not bothered about looks, and want a simple phone for contacting people, I would reccomend this phone. If you are bothered about looks and extras, don't buy it or you'll get bored and it'll be a waste of money.
