The B250 has external buttons which allow user to play MP3 files without opening the phone. The 128-polyphonic sound chip has been built in to provide exquisite ring tones.
The B250 is also equipped with a 2megapixel camera and the photo editing function has been upgraded which allows the user to change facial expressions on photos such as turning a smiling face into one showing anger. Various other effects are also possible such as changing the picture frame design.
