Summary: Last week Steve introduced the Nokia X7 , the first Symbian Anna retail device, and as promised he's passed it over to me to take it into the real world and see what it can deliver away from his technically detailed eye.
Summary: More than perhaps any other smartphone manufacturer, Nokia spreads its OS around a number of subtly different form factors - along with specific claimed strengths (photography, music, and so on).
Summary: It's 7.00am, the X7 is fully charged, and the daily alarm that's smart enough to only ring Mondays to Fridays wakes up not just me, but also a look at the X7 in day to day use. We could sit and examine specs on the device and do pixel perfect comparisons of the new and old web browser.
Review: Nokia X7 - Part 4 (The Application Economy)
All About Symbian
18 May 2012
Summary: Time for the next part in our look at the Nokia X7 (see parts one , two and three as well). This is the point where traditionally we'd turn to look at the applications in a Symbian phone review. And who am I to break with tradition? Exactly.
Conclusion: Whilst Nokia’s software update has added missing features, it doesn’t solve many of the complaints we’ve had with previous Nokia Smartphones. The unresponsive touchscreen is frustrating, and some of Nokia’s apps seem buggy; we were often pushed back out to the phone’s main screen.
Conclusion: As I said earlier in the beginning of this review, toying around with the Nokia X7 is like coming home to a newly renovated house. That said, there was a reason I moved out of the house in the first place, and sadly, despite the renovations, the very reason why I opted to move to a new place wasn’t...
Conclusion: To sum up the device in one popular internet description: “Nokia have just turned up to a gun fight carrying a knife”. This is a device with software that they should have released 2 years ago. In today’s market it is outclassed and overpriced.
