Reliable, Splash-proof, Loads around
Getting old now, slow, heavy
The Nokia 5110 mobile phone was, for many people, their first "proper" digital mobile phone.
I got mine after SIX previous different models of phone that never lasted more than two
months, and although old even when I got it; I had very few complaints with it.
You still see thousands around, which must be testament to their longevity.
I replaced mine only when the screen started going blank. (Solved with masking tape around the headpiece).
