Conclusion: The Nokia C7 is a feature-packed smartphone. It may lack the ease of use of the Apple iPhone, but it counters with a robust and stylish design, and its operating system offers a lot more versatility. It's also set to be a lot cheaper than its rivals.
Pros: The Nokia C7 features a large 3.5-inch AMOLED screen. With multi-touch technology, it's the perfect device for browsing the internet or flicking through your photographs. The display is also made out of glass, and it's surprisingly robust. The design of the Nokia C7 is also a high point, with the handset avoiding the bulky camera casing found on the Nokia N8. Instead, you'll find a curvy design, with an incredibly thin casing and stainless steel construction. The Noki...
Cons: Unlike the Nokia N8, the Nokia C7's camera does without Carl Zeiss optics and autofocus. The resulting photographs are still pin-sharp, but depth of field suffers as a result. The Symbian ^3 operating system will also prove too clunky for some. It still works well – proving responsive and versatile – but it's not as intuitive as rivals and takes some getting used to.
Excerpt: The new age of Nokia with its updated OS Symbian ^3 was supposed to bring about a change in our perception of one of the top mobile phone makes in the business. Sadly, after testing the Nokia N8, I’m not sure just cosmetic changes and funky designs are going to do it. The C7, like the N8 comes with plenty of functionality and features, but the 20K question really is, does it compete well enough with the others in its range? Here’s a closer look.
Conclusion: Clearly better priced than the Nokia Nuron from last year, the Astound is undoubtedly something you might want to look at if you simply tire of the usual smartphones out there and want to experience Symbian^3. Sporting a fantastic looking design that’s assisted with various features that are generally abundant with most high-end devices, the $79.99 on-contract Nokia Astound is something you want to keep a watchful eye on.
Pros: Eye catching & solid design, Sharp AMOLED display, Long battery life, Great calling quality, Affordable cost
Cons: No auto-focus with its camera, Choppy web surfing with the native browser
Excerpt: The Nokia C7 is a rounded-edge candybar that features a large, 3.5-inch, 360 x 640 pixel resolution AMOLED screen offering nHD resolution. That means you get a great display that renders honest colors, sharp edges and minimizes bleeding. Good stuff here. The C7 comes packed with features that will appeal to both the businessman and social butterfly alike, including an 8MP camera featuring dual LED flash, digital zoom, Geo-tagging and more, HD video record with light, MP3...
Conclusion: We find the general usability of the latest Nokia phones to be fairly cumbersome and not very intuitive at all. If you're a seasoned Nokia user then this might not be a problem, but if you expect better functionality from your mobile then the C7 may not be the phone for you. Although the overall design of the handset look a little dated when compared to those from rival brands, we were inpressed by the solid build quality and the metal casing on the back.
Pros: Durable metal casing, good camera, outstanding battery life
Cons: Slightly dated design, clunky user interface, awkward keyboard
Conclusion: Em conclusão, o Nokia C7 mantém-se a uma certa distância da linha N series e sem ser perfeito, é uma das máquinas mais equilibradas e balanceadas que a Nokia tem no mercado. O C7 tem uma excelente qualidade de construção, tem um ecrã muito competente e está bem equipado no campo da conectividade e das ligações. A câmara deste telemóvel consegue bons vídeos e boas fotos mas merecia ter focagem automática.
Pros: - Relação Qualidade/Preço, - Qualidade de Construção, - Ergonomia, - Conectividade
Summary: Das Nokia C7 ist ein Touchscreen-Handy mit Symbian 3 und soll als günstigere Alternative zum N8 das Portfolio des finnischen Handy-Herstellers ergänzen. Inwiefern das gelingt, zeigt unser Test.
