Built to last

Design-wise, Nokia 215 has the same durable build quality you’ve learned to rely on over the years. Pair that with vibrantly colored bright green, black and white color options and you’ve got a phone that stands the test of time.

A Month Long Battery

Nokia 215 Single SIM has a stand-by time of up to 29 days (that’s almost a full month, on just a single charge!), while Nokia 215 Dual SIM offers up to 21 days.

For those who like to talk, Nokia 215 provides up to 20 hours of talk time.

With a built-in MP3 player and FM radio, Nokia 215 keeps you entertained for up to 50 or 45 hours playback respectively.
