Me and my brother both bought our first ever mobile phones together. He bought Nokia 3310 and I bought Motorolla T191.
My reason was, mobile phone should be in silver colour, sleek design and have an antenna(lol) so that it looks like a mobile phone. T190 was without the antenna.
My brother idea was that 3310 casing cover can changed multiple time and everytime it looks new and different.
Anyway, I used my motorolla phone for around 2 years before its screen went internally damaged and colour from back started fading. And then I bought a new beautiful phone.
My brother's 3310 worked for next 4/5 years and ended up with our little cousin who used it for a year or two and then gave it away in working condition to their driver and God knows how long did he use it.
Great phone I must say at this time.
