With so many smartphones around the nostalgic “feature phones” are just becoming things of past. If you are thinking on the same line, then you are wrong. One can well argue that even “the feature phone king” Nokia has suffered by not complying with changing the mood of customers and then have to make a comeback with three Nokia smartphones at MWC 2017, how can a feature phone still have a relevance?
So, which one is the Credit Card Size Phone?
The answer lies in a credit card sized phone namely Talkase T3. This piece is a GSM, or in other words, a feature phone which first came into the new in 2014 by Kickstarter. One would think that at MWC 2017 everyone is talking about glittery and big size smartphones, who will take a note of such ‘passed by its date’ GSM phone? But if you give it a look you will certainly fell for it.
This Talkase T3 GSM phone has just a 0.96-inch diagonal OLED display and also has a calculator type of looks. When you give this phone a look, you will understand that there was no special effort made to make it look something unusual and extraordinary but yet it gives you that nostalgic feeling you will indeed lure by it. Despite lacking on everything, you can think of buying it.
There is no app, no camera, not even that “Snake Game” which we used to enjoy on Nokia phones in this phone. All you will have is the basic calling, messaging and a music player, and yes an alarm too. What you would love the most about this phone is that its battery lasts for 72 hours on a single charge!
Surprisingly it has the inbuilt hotspot feature which will enable you to convert your phone into a hotspot via using its 3G connectivity and can use it as WiFi for your other wireless gadgets. But the speed will be so slow that you probably don’t want to use it anyway.
If you want to give the Talkase T3 a try, then you probably won’t mind spending just $33 for it.
