Slim and lightweight, with a robust polycarbonate body, the Nokia 225 comes in a range of bright colours, as well as good old-fashioned plain black. It's a solidly-built phone that will survive a good few knocks. The phone is much slimmer than most of these old-style Nokias, and is easy to slip into your pocket.
The screen is a decent 2.8 inches, which is quite large for a feature phone.
As well as basic calling and texting duties, the 225 has Facebook and Twitter installed, although we wouldn't recommend making much use of these, as there's no 3G or Wi-Fi connection available. The only connectivity options are USB and Bluetooth, so you'll be relying on a GSM network for data.
The 2 megapixel rear-facing camera is basic. It's fixed focus, with no flash, and has limited video recording capabilities.
There's also a music player and an FM radio, and the microSD card slot lets you add up to 32GB of storage for music and videos. You can plug in a standard-fit headphone for best audio quality.
Battery life is a key feature of this phone, and it has the largest battery of any Nokia feature phone. It can power an incredible 21 hours of talktime, or 36 days on standby.
We'd say that this is easily the best of Nokia's 1xx and 2xx series phones. It does cost more than the others, although it's still very cheap and good value.
