Excerpt: average of each category is 5.7... but everyday usage must be weighted significantly more, which drags my overall score to 4.0 I ran out of boxes for cons, but just click on the individual ratings to see why i rated it that way....
Pros: (see individual sections for more details)
Cons: Poor software & even worse support form Nokia, Bug in MS Outlook Calendar sync moves re-occouring items 1 day ahead (Nokia support is USELESS for help), (see individual sections more more details)
Summary: After receiving phone purchased through Amazon supplied by others, I discover the phone, advertised as for US with warranty, was supplied with European charger and maps loaded. With Nokia Ovi Suite I transferred my contacts from my other phone and during the process the Suite suggested I should...
Summary: This is a beautiful phone, cosmetically. The screens are vibrant, the video is crisp and clear. Takes a while to figure it out, but worth the time. The only problem i had is the fact that it was suppose to be the U S version with warranty, and when I opened the box, nothing was in english.
Summary: Although the hardware on the phone is brilliant, the software really kills it. I've used other mobile platforms, having owned an iPod Touch 4g, an Android 2.2 phone, and a Windows Phone 7 phone...
Excerpt: What we liked about the Nokia E7-00: Sound: Best call experienced on a phone. Amazing clarity in voice calls. Navigation: The best there is on the market. Hardware: Really good build quality. Great overall look and feel.
Summary: The phone itself is functional, stylish and has been my favourite phone over the 3 i've had in the last 10 years. However after 15 months of ownership the phone developed a problem with the charging USB.
Summary: This is an awesome phone, one of the best I've had but it won't last long, the charging port just stops working after a while and as you can't remove the back, the phone is pretty much useless now, it lasted just a year.
Summary: I am almost entering a period of despair trying to find a good business mobile phone! I was so looking forward to the E7. I had written off Blackberry as not a serious business phone when I discovered I couldn't synch my SMS messages and a few other things with my PC - can you imagine - a phone...
Summary: The GPS (one of my main reasons for buying it) works only if connected to Internet, and even so, with a lousy precision (wrong by about 20 km). Applications are non-intuitive. Difficult to open open/slide the upper lid.
