This phone fails on every level, in every way. It looks cool from the front, but the back is all rounded and ugly. It's also enormous with its 4" screen; why couldn't we get this with the same form factor of the N8? It's all the same hardware in there. And no, there are NOT 4 speakers - that was only an assumption people had made. It does have two, but who cares. The price will be outrageous wfor the now completely outdated chipset in this thing. If Nokia didn't have the cooler shell designs, there would be NO reason to look at their phones anymore. That's all that selling them, the looks. Nobody wants what's inside! Don't waste your money on this junk!
usedtolovenokia, 26 Nov 2010Obsolete ARM 11 cpu, 360x640 resolution, wierd design. Well, good luck Nokia. But of course ... moreObviously ARM11 processors are not obsolete since Nokia uses them. And our 'bricks' are more efficient and will last longer than your Android or iOS, or Bada or whatever phone and OS you're using.
Anonymous, 12 Apr 2011i too am very disappointed with nokia especially their quality. my N8 hanged after 3 days use.... moreHonestly most of you people are liars. Maybe you're someone who works for Apple or 1 of the companies that use Android OS. what are the chances of you and your brother getting defective handsets?
I love Nokia, but since the N8 came out, all new phones thereafter have fixed focus cameras, great for scenery but not portraits, which most people use their cameraphone for! Why the move backwards Nokia? Are you trying to sell more N8 phones by giving every other phone a shittier camera?
- No Carl Zeiss lens
- No Auto Focus
- No frontal camera
- The "dead" symbian OS.
What's the deal ?
I could buy it with the "dead" symbian OS if it becomes with Carl Zeiss lens + Auto Focus + Frontal Camera... maybe...
Nokia, rest in peace!! If you continue like this, you will be the world's 4th mobile phone maker soon! :( You should announce that Meego device already!! Where are the Dual Core Symbian phones you promised?? You announced only 2 weak smart phones this year. :( The E6 is awful. The X7 looks cool, but the specs are so 2009.
Yana, 11 Apr 2011Still on 4 inch (Screen) I love 6 inchesthats good to know that you like 6" have you ever had 7" or larger?
nokia's are like totally big in the game, they are well nice and fast at doing tings. Big up to all my nokia lovers
symbian and my path parted more that 2 years ago... sad actually, but today i'm can’t believe i stuck for so long with symbian - since 1999 with my first 'indestructible brick' 5110.
today im the proud owner of a droid. couldn’t be happier.
history apart, there is one specific theme stuck with all the pro-symbian fans: "why does nokia need better hardware (cpu, ram etc.)" & "symbian can run on the good ol' 680mhz bla bla bla".
must confess, the hardware alone doesn't make the phone great (as the new 1.2ghz BB is not that appealing to me either, most probable the RIM OS).
come on. don’t you guys also want to see nokia up there with the other top dogs? how come symbian is not bringing out a tablet or something for example? (not that i specifically want one, but still). why is that all the new ‘nice to have’ features are available on android and iOS (Playstation, 3D, 1080p, tablets etc.)?
to think nokia was always on the foreground when it comes to development and innovation, of which plentiful ideas and designs are now evident on many other phones. but, unfortunately they forgot to keep the OS up to date.
and the move to wm7? well, in my opinion, it’s not the winning combination. Anna OS should have emerged long time ago.
Who knows… maybe my path will cross with nokia once again in the future, but not while dragging symbian with or the new quick fix wm7…
realy funny nokia,without autofocus even if d camera is 80 not 8 it worth nothing
To be released in Q2?? Lol, if this device is already obsolete compared with the current highend devices, imagine how obsolete it will be by then!!!
Man, is this really the best nokia can do? Wow, I feel sorry for them already!
No Auto Facous
No memory (RAM) is only 256 !!!
short life battery
just sell also my nokia N8 for 300$
will not buy nokia any more
The X7-00 manifuture cost is 85$ only !!
sell it around 550$
Person who buys no-autofocus camera is crazy! I understand if phone is very cheap and low class, but... Nokia, are you crazy? Your market position future is dark because on competition (Android) and now you don't do best you can and put these crap fixed-focus lenses on expensive business phones and media phones.
Nokia, you deserve going down!
my n8 and my girrlfriend's c7 work perfect from 3 month non-stop. so it's not a rule.
nokia have to join ANDROID oprating system ,without android they fails in his every product.
No Autofocus! Why Nokia is neglecting autofocus in their handsets? A mobile with so high price tag SHOULD be with Autofocus! As Optical Zoom is not possible with mobicams, Autofocus is a must I think! Also if one thinks about autofocus timing and faults and chances of losing a shot, Nokia should give Autofocus with an option to turn the autofocus off, if the user dont think to use this, and to manually fixing the focus at Far(landscape/focus @ infinity) or at Near(Macro). But without Autofocus its not impressive at all!!
