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 typing. In addition, the camera glass on the back was flush, meaning it was prone to picking up dirt and scratches.
Excerpt: The Communicator has been synonymous with the word “big” in the mobile business, ok I’m kidding. Jokes aside the size of these devices never really mattered what mattered was sheer communication functionality the series was able to deliver. We’ve been without a Communicator for quite some time now but Nokia’s not been at the top of their game for awhile so it’s no wonder.
Review: Nokia E7, part 6 (Navigation, Utilities, Homescreens, Wrap-up)
All About Symbian
11 April 2011
Summary: It's big, it's black, it knows where it is and it's surprisingly thin. Here's the sixth, and final, part in our in-depth review of the retail Nokia E7. I look at the built-in mapping and navigation, at additional applications, both preloaded and supplied via the on-device store, at its homescreens, plus I try to work out where the E7 fits into the smartphone world of 2011. Be sure to also check Part 1 , Part 2 , Part 3 , Part 4 and Part 5 of our E7 review so far.
Summary: In our continuing Nokia E7-00 review, Rafe has already given you his opinion on the E7 hardware . Following on, Steve has taken you through the image capture and multimeda capabilities of the E7. For parts four and five, I'll be focussing on the productivity and enterprise abilities of Nokia's latest Eseries communicator. In this part, I look at text input options, messaging/email, personal information management and VoIP\uFEFF.
Review: Nokia E7, part 5 - Internet, Security and Productivity
All About Symbian
11 April 2011
Summary: In this, part five of our in-depth E7 review, I’ll continue to look at the productivity and enterprise features of the E7. Given that the E7 isn’t even available to buy in many areas yet, we are of course reviewing a product release (PR) 1.0 device. Readers should note that its software version is 13.016, which puts it equal in many ways with the PR 1.1 firmware of the N8, C7 and C6-01. Be sure to check Part 1 , Part 2 , Part 3 , and Part 4 of our E7 review so far too.
Summary: The Nokia E7 is a thoroughly decent phone. It has more than enough going on inside it to more than satisfy the needs of the vast majority of consumers. It’s got lots of storage, a well integrated apps store, decent camera and video facility, an intuitive new OS and it lets you view web pages in remarkable quality and very quickly thanks to its more than adequate data support
Pros: Good display, Symbian^3 performs well, HDMI port, 8-megapixel camera, QWERTY keyboard, decent browser, unified email, 720p HD video recording,
Cons: Not quite as 'snappy' as the Nokia N8, Qwerty keyboard latch takes a while to get used to,
Conclusion: It’s a heavy beast, clearly intended for business users. And as mobile offices go it’s a terrific tool, with a fine keyboard, excellent screen, more than capable camera and a feast of software goodies for work and fun. The problem, as it has been with Nokia for a while now, is Symbian, which has been improving, but seems so far behind its Android and iOS rivals that there’s no way it can catch up.
Pros: Top notch build quality, excellent screen and QWERTY keyboard, 8 megapixel camera with HD video recording, HDMI output
Summary: O Nokia E7 é uma obra prima da Nokia: bonito, tem ótima construção, o melhor teclado já feito em um smartphone, tela grande e super sensível e muitas opções de conectividade inclusive HDMI,amplo apoio para e-mails corporativos e capacidades de gerenciamento de TI remotamente além de ótima navegação GPS offline com o Ovi Maps. Mas como nem tudo são flores ele roda um sistema que vêm sendo muito criticado pelos especialistas.
