It has been 15 years since the Nokia 3310 launched. And not a day goes by when we don't long for the week-long battery life it gave us.
With its monochrome screen and Snake II, it is a classic that should belong in the phone hall of fame -- if one exists.
After it was launched on September 1, 2000, the phone sold 126 million models over the next 11 years.
In addition to endless games of Snake ll it also took the pressure off sending texts by giving us a limit of 459 characters. Yes, we loved those long text messages.
Despite being a not-so-smartphone, it is one we will continue to miss.
Many took to social media to express their appreciation and nostalgia:

As of late, I'd much rather not have anyone on any social network and own a Nokia 3310 & play snake all day.— jeanie (@Lethabo_N) August 27, 2015
