Nokia 225 Dual SIM Manual

The Nokia 225 Dual SIM manual is a rehash of an old mobile phone design from many years back. The phone is very basic and you can see this from the price of the phone being offered in India for about 3,000 Rupees. Nokia has lost ground in India over the years as the mobile phones are normally very pricey by Indian standards as well as the flow of copies from China making it into the market.

Nokia 225 Dual SIM Manual

The Nokia 225 is a dual SIM phone and comes with GSM 900/1800 and nothing else. The mobile was released in May 2014 and has received average reviews compared to what Nokia would normally release. It is a small phone with a 256K TFT screen at only 240 x 320 pixels. Its a bit of a walk back to the old days of Sony Ericsson. There is the standard 2.5mm jack and loud-speak as well as Vibration and MP3 ringtones options. It also comes with the now standard microSD with up to 32 GB storage.

The multimedia is again standard 2 MP, 1600 x 1200 pixels camera. There is only one on the front with no secondary camera in this budget range. The video is also the much slower version of 320p@15fps.

Considering the advancement in battery technology and the lack of anything fancy on this phone it does have a standby time of more than  648 hours which is about 25-27 days. There is also talktime of about 21 hours. I am not certain why they released this phone not only that it offers nothing ‘sexy’ but that the design is even a rehash of more than 10 years back. The only difference is its colours. Likewise see also the mobitel balance check code as well as the airtel recharge code.
