If you considered the Nokia 230 and the Nokia 222 budget phones, then the Nokia 105 is even cheaper. There are a number of reasons for this as we can see from the Nokia 105 specs listed above. The phone is very basic, however it has a nice clean two tone design and with its large buttons, makes for a good phone for an older person.
The specifications on the Nokia 215 is between the two budget phones and hence its priced at about 30. It also has only 2G network access being GSM 900 / 1800 – RM-1111. It has GPRS but does not have EDGE. Its about the same size as the other budget phones at 116 x 50 x 12.9 mm (4.57 x 1.97 x 0.51 in) with a 2.4 inches (~31.1% screen-to-body ratio) screen. The resolution and colour is much better than the €20 Nokia 105 phone as it has 240 x 320 pixels (~166 ppi pixel density) with a TFT, 256K colors screen.
The Nokia 215 comes with a dedicated microSD slot, up to 32 GB as well as 8MB of RAM. The phone also comes with a very basic camera and basic video with video playback at only 240p@15fps. There is no flash on the phone but it does have a flashlight. Alerts are by vibration as well as by MP3 ringtones. There is also a loudspeaker as well as a 3.5mm jack.
There is not WiFi or GPS on the phone however it does sport a USB port as well as a radio and V3 Bluetooth. There is also SMS, MMS but no IM. The specs are a bit higher than the bottom of the budget market and with a removable Li-Ion 1100 mAh battery it holds a very decent 696 h standby time.
