The Good Integrated camera; speakerphone; IR port; analog roaming.
The Bad Shaky call quality; thin camera features.
The Bottom Line This is a decent phone for everyday use, but you'll find better camera features in other Sprint models.
Though Nokia has long been partial to GSM carriers, it hasn't entirely left out Sprint PCS. Its latest camera phone, the Nokia 6225, has the same design as the Nokia 6200 for AT&T Wireless and offers similar features. But while this handset adds a camera, it doesn't offer many of the bells and whistles you'll find in other camera phones. Sprint currently sells the 6225 for as low as $79 with new service, which is a decent price for a phone of this caliber; however, some users may expect more from both Sprint and Nokia. The candy bar-style Nokia 6225 measures 4.21 by 1.81 by 0.83 inches and weighs 3.46 ounces. That's slightly larger than the Nokia 6200, most likely due to the integrated camera. The silver-and-maroon casing isn't eye popping, but it's not gaudy either. The earpiece volume control is the only button on the side of the handset, and it requires such a firm touch that you won't find yourself accidentally pushing it while talking. Another plus is that the signature Nokia power button on the top of the handset is more responsive than that of similar models. The camera lens, sans a flash or a mirror for self-portraits, is on the mobile's reverse side.
