Nokia were renowned for producing some of the world's best mobile phones - now called feature phones - long before anybody came up with the concept of the smartphone.
The good news is they're still at it! Their latest offering is the Nokia 225 and if it was a smartphone pundits around the globe would be drooling over it. However, not all of you want to spend hundreds of pounds on a smartphone and many people still prefer the traditional screen and separate keypad. This is Nokia at their best, and while the colourful hues might remind you of the Windows Lumia range, this is very much a feature packed feature phone.
The impressive 2.8 inch display looks bang up to date, with Nokia now using brighter LCD screens instead of the traditional TFT screen. This large screen offers sharp, clear text and rich, bright colours and displays photo images extremely well too.
The strong polycarbonate casing is ample protection for the rich features which include a stereo FM radio, 2 megapixel camera with 360p video recording, photo album, music player and Bluetooth.
Text and picture messaging is accompanied by email functionality, and a web browser is also included although regrettably there is no Wi-Fi.
Music lovers are catered for with a loudness function, 3.5mm headphone socket and handsfree speaker, while endless playlists can be stored on memory cards - up to 32GB cards are accepted. A voice recorder top off the audio feature set.
Nokia comprehensive Personal Information Manager is on board too, with all the usual features including a calendar, converter, calculator, analogue (display style) and digital clocks with reminders, and alarm with ringtone reminder function in mp3 format. A torch is also included and a 1000 name phonebook.
The extensive list of features explains why this is much more than a basic phone, while it remains very simple to operate. Build quality compliments an excellent screen and specification list, with the only real absentees being Wi-Fi and 3G, but for the price offered the Nokia 225 is an excellent feature phone that people of all ages will enjoy.
