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...
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.
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 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.
Summary: Let me start with the body - The phone lacks the ability to be held firmly nicely while using the keyboard or the touch. Unless you have large hands, it is bound to slip off and fall. Nokia should have considered using not so slippery materials for the outer body.
