Summary: You've watched as I've taken the Nokia E7-00 from the box it was in, popped it in my sporran as I flew half way round the world to a conference to see what it can do , and then get seriously delayed on the flight home . Now it's the moment of reckoning. What do I really think of the Nokia E7?
Summary: If you've been paying attention to our coverage of the Nokia E7, you'll remember that I complained at length about the slipperiness of the unibody main shell of the device: it was prone to dropping, especially when opening the E7, plus the device tended to skate away from me on the desk when I was...
Excerpt: Nokia has finally rolled out the long awaited firmware update sequel to Symbian Anna. Dubbed “Nokia Belle”, the new firmware has been made available for the Symbian^3 range of smartphones, including the E6, N8, E7, X7, C6-01, and now 500.
Conclusion: Nokia Belle is an excellent upgrade to Anna. It transforms any Symbian^3 smartphone into a totally different device. If you haven’t upgraded your device, I recommend that you do in the shortest possible time. In spite of the bugs I mentioned, it is a worthy upgrade.
Summary: It’s easy to see that the Nokia E7 is a great smartphone with beautiful finish. The device comes with a lot of connectivity options (a set of USB and HDMI cables included in the package). It is large and the keyboard is comfortable and easy to use.
Conclusion: The solid build and very useable keyboard are both things we've come to expect from Nokia's high-end smartphones, as is the (generally) superb performance from its cameras. But Symbian, the stuff it all runs on, is slow, and just doesn't stand up to other phone's offerings, like Android and iOS.
Summary: There is only one speaker, but it is loud and clear. Ringtones can be easily heard from pockets. I like tremolo of the vibro, but the majority will find it weak. There are no complaints about the connection quality.
Now let's move to the main points.
Summary: The Nokia E7 is a great and welcome addition to the Nokia E Series family. With the new features and the new and improved operating system, the Nokia smartphone is bound to command interest for a long time. This review has more information about the Nokia E7.
