NOKIA E7 Review
We do know that Nokia is always pioneer of the mobile arena in that aspect it’s doing research and development on devices .windows Phone 7 is going to be a mainstay on Nokia smart phones in the future, but that doesn’t mean their Symbian contributions do not lack a punch, since the E7 does feature a Clear Black Display which coalesces an AMOLED screen with a polarized filter for improved contrast, as well as 3G HSDPA speed support on both T-Mobile and AT. It has been a long time since we arranged hands on a device that felt so reassuringly solid. Although slightly indicative of the N8, the E7 is cleaner, with fewer buttons and ports littering the sides, giving it a much more refined look. Yes, this is a phone you can parade.
The front is subjugated by the 4 inch AMOLED capacitive touch screen with just a single key beneath it, to serve as a waking up, menu and back button. Sliding the screen reveals one of the most spacious QWERTY keyboards seen in recent times. On the back is an 8.0-megapixel camera, but alas, no auto focus, but with an aptitude to shoot HD video. The entrails of the device are impressive too — a 680 MHz processor, which is the fastest seen on an E series device, every connectivity selection you can think of (HDMI, USB on The Go, as well as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi , 3G and the like), & 16 GB of non-expandable storage space.
While Symbian ^3 does execute estimably as evaluated to its precursors, it has none of the intuitiveness and speediness that one has come to expect from Android and iOS. The touch screen is wonderfully responsive and a pleasure to use but the widgets on the three (just three!) customisable home screens still behave randomly, refusing to update at times. You need an Ovi Account to admittance your Twitter and Face book We can also see mails in our Gmail account taking significantly longer to arrive on the E7 as compared to the iPhone 3GS and BlackBerry Bold 9700 — incredible never seen on an E series device. Round that off with strangeness like a firmware update that wipes out your contacts and you can see why Symbian^3 is the Achilles Heel of the E7.
E7 has a terrific QWERTY keyboard, great display, good calling value, and most impressive, a battery that lasts contentedly more than a day. These are offset by a mediocre OS and a camera that is frankly awesome.
