Phones may be getting thinner and shinier but you can't throw them against a wall or expect them to still be charged four days later. Re-enter the 3310, the phone du jour of the early 2000s which for many of us was the start of a life-long love affair with mobile phones.

Later this month the 3310 will return for just €59, the budget option you've been pining for after all those eye-watering Apple prices. The new iteration of the 3310 will be revealed at the Mobile World Congress summit later this month.

Although Nokia have struggled to compete with smartphone giants like Apple and Samsung, they are introducing three new phones at the Congress, the Nokia 3, 5 and 6. The 3310 is pitched as a nostalgic throwback and reliable back up phone, perfect for using (and losing) at Glastonbury.

No word yet on whether Snake will come preloaded - the best part about the phone - but you can still get the 3310 on Amazon for a cool £23.99. Complete with clock, calculator and Snake II.

Your move, iPhone.
