The review emphasizes how small, light and pocketable the S220 is (dimensions are 90 x 56 x 18 mm (3.5 x 2.2 x 0.7 in), while the weight is only 100 g (3.5 oz) with batteries), and concludes:

While some lens, LCD, and image quality is sacrificed in the Coolpix S220 for its affordable price tag and ultra compact body, overall this unit undoubtedly offers a lot of style and portability for a very little asking price. One certainly worth considering if looking to purchase a stylish but positively simple compact camera within this price range.

Alexandra Savvides, the reviewer, comments that the S220 looks better than other cameras in its class (Alexandra specifically mentions the Canon PowerShot A480), and concludes:

All the specifications start to look the same, so every camera in this price point needs something unique to set it apart — in the case of the S220 it’s the incredibly small size and good looks. Unfortunately, the images it produces aren’t without problems as we’ve mentioned above, so take this into consideration before handing over your cash.

No, that’s not a typo in the heading. Cliff Smith, the reviewer, did actually review the S225, which is exactly the same model as the S220, but was made exclusively for Jessops. So his conclusion and verdict of the S225 also holds for the S220:

The Nikon CoolPix S225 a very pretty little camera. It is well made, sensibly designed and performs reasonably well. It is lacking in interesting features, but it is very easy to use. It has excellent high-ISO noise control, but unfortunately it is badly let down by inferior lens quality and restricted dynamic range.
