Nokia 215

The Overview

The surprise with the Nokia 215 feature phone (or “dumbphone,” as opposed to a smartphone) is that it comes pre-loaded with Facebook Messenger. Microsoft is capitalizing on Facebook’s success in social media, with the social networking site now boasting of over 1.35 billion user accounts worldwide. Microsoft says that the core Facebook app as well as Twitter will also come pre-loaded on the Nokia 215 out of the box.

As for the other features of the Nokia 215, you’re looking at a budget-level phone. First, the Nokia 215 features a 2.4-inch LCD display with 240 x 320 pixels resolution.

The front camera is only a 0.3 megapixels camera with a 2x digital zoom and video shooting at 15fps (frames per second), which can take modest photos and videos to be shared on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

The 1100mAh battery offers a decent amount of battery life posting up to 20 hours talk time and up to 50 hours of music playback time. Nokia 215 offers 2G internet, so do not expect video streaming. It is just about connecting you to social sites, messaging, and browsing the web.

Last but not least, you’ll get a surprising microSD card slot with the device. This is a good move, since it’s likely the case that you only get a few MB of internal storage from the outset. You can expand the storage by 32GB, a move that’s sure to prevent the entry-level mobile phone buyer from needing anything other than the Nokia 215.


If all you want is social media (Facebook and Twitter), music, and a decent-standing battery to stay connected via social media, the new Facebook feature phone Nokia 215 is the phone for you.

Microsoft has placed this phone at a price of $29 (before taxes and subsidies) off-contract. 2G data connectivity is a compromise with this phone, but considering the price it is okay.

In the end, the Nokia 215 continues Microsoft’s push to nostalgia with the Nokia brand, and Facebook’s desire to see consumers around the world (even in developing countries) receive the best of the mobile experience.

Pricing and availability

Nokia 215 is available in Nigeria. Nokia 215 Price in Nigeria ranges from N5,000 to N8,000 depending on your location in the country.
