Excerpt: Nokia’s had a big screen presence for a long time, and the X7, like many predecessors made a debut in one of this year’s blockbusters i.e. Transformers: Dark of the Moon. It definitely has stage presence is what I thought, and was quite eager to put it through its paces. The handset made its way to our labs and after having used it quite thoroughly for a few days here’s what I can tell you about Nokia X7.
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. Until Nokia sort out the issues, it lags behind much cheaper phones in the perfomance stakes. Nokia's own N8 has a better camera, is cheaper, and will also get this Symbian update later.
Summary: The Nokia X7 is a distinctive and affordable handset, offering great quality and an impressive 4-inch screen. It's lacking in stand out features, however, and the poor camera really lets it down.
Excerpt: The Nokia X7 is built in a strong stainless steel body with a scratch-resistant Gorilla glass screen. It boasts a display resolution of 360 x 640 pixels on a large 4-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen making it well-suited to various mobile applications including web surfing, casual gaming, and different media applications. The Nokia X7 runs on a Symbian Anna platform giving users user-friendly access to different applications with an improved graphics interface.
Excerpt: Just the other day I attended the Nokia Developer Conference where the message that was re-iterated again and again was how the Nokia- Windows Phone tie-up will define the future and how awesome everything will be. It feels a little strange therefore to be reviewing a Nokia smartphone that's still using Symbian rather than basking in the golden light of Windows Phone.
Summary: Nokia’s latest touchscreen smartphone is a big sculpted piece of brushed metal with industrial detailing, topped with a pin-sharp, hi-res, contrasty screen. Best Symbian ever Inside it’s running Symbian, Nokia’s OS that’s soon to be phased out to be replaced by Windows Phone. Despite this being the autumn of Symbian’s life, this latest update (codenamed ‘Anna’) looks and feels better than ever on the X7.
Excerpt: Nokia har været langt bagud, når det gælder smartphones og Nokia X7, som er det seneste skud på stammen fra Nokia, ændrer desværre ikke på det faktum, at iPhone og Android mobilerne, stadig er et skridt eller to foran. Nokia X7 er med dens store skærm den perfekte gamer mobil, men fordi Nokia har valgt at bruge styresystemet Symbian, som kun understøtter Nokias eget Ovi marked, så er der desværre ikke det store spiludvalg endnu.
