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.

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: 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.
Pros: It?s a formidable looking machine with a huge screen, hard metal casing, a superb camera and unmatched sat nav features
Cons: It runs on Symbian Anna, a dying dog of an OS that?s awkward to use, and it won?t be long before Nokia ditches it in favour of Windows Phone 7. The 680MHz processor is a bit puny for this price range
