Nokia C7 - Not The Sharpest On The Shelf

 

The new age of Nokia with its updated OS Symbian ^3 was supposed to bring about a change in our perception of one of the top mobile phone makes in the business. Sadly, after testing the Nokia N8, I'm not sure just cosmetic changes and funky designs are...

There’s no argument that the C7 is a pretty well designed handset and comes with loads of functionality, however, there are a few hic-ups with the device that really turned me off. Firstly the update I installed pretty much disallowed using the handset...

T-Mobile Nokia C7 Astound Review

 

Before we go any further, I'd like to let you know that we've got not [one], but [two] hands-on experiences with this device. Check there for all the specs and tiny details your heart could desire. Below you'll find a broad approach at a review since...

Symbian and Nokia do not hold the same mindshare that Apple and Google do, mindshare that’s vitally important when considering taking over the world of mobile OS. If you take the Nokia Astound and put it in a vacuum with every other phone in its price...

Nokia C7 Review

 

The Nokia C7 could well be described as the less outlandish sibling of the N8: a more sober design, more mainstream camera and more affordable price tag, for what's the second Symbian^3 smartphone from the company. Alternatively, it could be a business...

Priced at £359 or free on a £20 per month agreement in the UK (the C7 is yet to show up at Nokia USA’s online store) the C7 undercuts the N8 by £70 (or £120 over the course of a two-year subsidy). For your money you’re getting strong camera performance...

Nokia C7 review: Rise and shine

 

The Nokia C7 has no intention of breaking the chain of command. It is just a slimmer, simpler and more affordable N8 and comes with more conservative styling. The well-balanced Cseries have received an accomplished leader. The specs are impressive but...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Penta-band 3G with 10.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA support ; 10.5mm slim body ; 3.5" 16M-color AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution ; 8 megapixel fixed-focus camera with dual-LED flash and 720p...

Symbian^3 is still below Android and iOS usability standards (especially camera UI and web browser) ; Camera lacks auto focus, oversharpens images by default ; Relatively limited 3rd party software availability ; No office document editing (without a...

Nokia C7 is a nicely made handset with an extra thin profile. Maybe it’s too rounded for our taste, or maybe it’s just us. This cool cat provides distinct E-series styling and the no-nonsense C-series attitude in a package that means business.

Nokia C7 Review

 

What do you get if you take a Nokia N8, give it a little more shine, a lot more curve, and monochrome it with a makeover? Well, you'd be left with something that looked much like the Nokia C7, a handsome contender for those of you who want a familiar...

Nokia C7 Review

 

This Nokia C7 review introduces and presents an overview of this Nokia C7 smartphone with emphasis on the design and the user interface that have been so boldly included in the Nokia C7.

Overall the Nokia C7 is a great phone, no doubt. It has made some bold moves in trying to move out the the Nokia C series comfort zone to compete with some of the market's high end phones, including those recently released such as the Nokia E7. With...

Review: Nokia C7

 

I'm glad to review a Nokia phone that's more advanced, but no different in essential navigational experience, from the other Nokia phones I've bought, sat on, lost, dropped down a flight of stairs and ran after, traded in, sold, dropped again, and...
