Обзор телефона Nokia 215/Nokia 215 Dual SIM

 

Недорогой кнопочный телефон с цветным экраном, фонариком, FM-радио, картой памяти и ярким корпусом. Мечта бюджетного сегмента для звонков?

В бюджетных Nokia последнего времени часто наблюдается проблема с громкостью звонка и качеством передачи речи. С первым тут нет никаких проблем, звонок не самый мощный, но чистый и хорошо различим. Но вот качество микрофона так себе, собеседник вас...

Nokia 215 review:

 

Being told you have a one-track mind isn't usually a compliment, but that's the Nokia 215's entire reason for existence. It's a phone whose primary objective is to make calls and it costs just $30, which translates to £19 or AU$35, not including tax....

The Nokia 215 is ultra-affordable and immensely pocketable. FM radio and a camera are useful extras on such a basic phone.

Since the 215 only works on two bands, you won't be able to use it everywhere in the world.

There's no need to hold back from buying this cheap, simple Nokia 215, which does exactly what it promises.
