Nokia E7 review

 

Over the years, we've seen a steady stream of business and messaging-centric landscape QWERTY smartphones come and go, with HTC arguably leading the

Nokia E7 review: Open for business

 

Business as usual for the Eseries is a cliché – thank you very much. But the kind that makes the world feel right. The Nokia E7 could've been just another Eseries phone. Oh well, that wasn't meant to be. The latest is implicitly the greatest but, in...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Penta-band 3G with 10.2 Mbps HSDPA and 2 Mbps HSUPA ; Anodized aluminum unibody ; 4" 16M-color ClearBlack AMOLED capacitive touchscreen of 640 x 360 pixel resolution ; Scratch resistant Gorilla glass display ; 8...

Symbian^3 is still behind Android and iOS usability standards ; Ovi store content is inferior to Android market and App Store ; Fixed-focus on an 8 megapixel camera is just wrong ; Camera interface is decidedly outdated ; Battery is not...

The Nokia E7 is either the best Symbian^3 smartphone on the market or the second best. This just can’t be bad news – whether you’re a brand-loyal upgrader or an unbiased user shopping for a premium smartphone.

Nokia E7 (Unlocked)

 

The beautifully crafted Nokia E7 sports a new Symbian OS version, but it's hardly distinguishable from the old one.

Beautiful hardware all around. Terrific camera and camcorder. Plenty of business connectivity.

Frustrating UI. No microSD card slot. Short battery life. Very expensive. OS is doomed.

The stock WebKit browser rendered desktop HTML pages well; pinch-zoom and scrolling were fast, and fonts looked sharp. But the browser's UI was exceedingly clumsy and required extra taps even just to navigate to a URL. The preloaded Ovi Maps navigation...

Nokia E7 review

 

Editors' note: Portions of this review were taken from our evaluation of the Nokia N8, since the two phones share some similarities in terms of features.

The Nokia E7 boasts a premium design and has a fantastic QWERTY keyboard. The smartphone's 8-megapixel camera takes excellent pictures and video. Battery life is also good.

The Symbian platform falls short of the competition, and the phone can be sluggish. The E7 has a lower-resolution display and doesn't have an expansion slot.

The Nokia E7 has some wonderful qualities, like great hardware and excellent battery life, but ultimately its inferior software trips up this business-oriented smartphone.

Nokia E7 Review

 

Arriving on the market late, the Nokia E7 finds itself launching at a shaky point in the Finnish company's history. Under new management, suffering doubts - internal and external - over the strength of its current platforms, and watching increasing...

There are several reasons for which we want to love the Nokia E7. The physical design is cleaner than the N8, build quality puts rival handsets from Samsung and LG to shame, the physical keyboard could give RIM nightmares and, mediocre display...

Nokia E7 vs LG Optimus 2X vs Apple iPhone 4

 

The Nokia E7, LG Optimus 2X and the Apple iPhone 4 are one of the best and most current representatives of rather different mobile operating systems – Symbian, Android and iOS. It's a long shot to compare the three as they are so different, but it...

Nokia E7 Review

 

This Nokia E7 review touches on the new design of this Nokia E series phone and looks at the interface that complements it. The review also gives an overview of what the Nokia E7 is all about.

The Nokia E7 is a great phone to have and a welcome change to the Nokia E Series family of business oriented smartphones. The design is excellent with its options for a hardware QWERTY slide out keyboard making this phone much easier to use. The...
