Californium252, 19 Oct 2017:o, its really not that bad indeed! At sub 380ÂÂ€ and with such specifications and moder... moreI like this model a lot.
HMD chairman did say that this phone is only for chinese market and do not come to europe or other countries. It would be interesting to know why...
But that was official statement. Hopefully next year version of this phone sees larger audience. The phone itself is fine. Good prosessor, nice look. The finger print sensor should be in the Front though. But it is more a matter of taste.
Maybe there just is not enough production capasity to provide this model elsewhere. Just like Nokia 8 is not coming to USA. The HMD is so small company that it has to chose its market areas to different phones it produces... maybe next year.
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2017Another disappointment. No bezzeles, no Oreo, high prize, small screen big body. Samsung A5 20... moreThe new A5 will probably be alot more expensive though...maybe 50-100 more. But I take your points on the 7. Bezels are big and now even budget phones like the honor and redmi will be bezel less and with dual cameras. But the design of this phone was probably locked down about a year ago. The phone feels out of place compared with the other nokias though. Glass back and on screen buttons? Buttons are taking up screen space but still have a tall phone for 5.2 inch screen.
In the age of bezel less and dual cam phones this feels out of place. Still, it's not a bad phone but a bit pricey considering it's not waterproof & I don't think it has 4K capable cam with OIS
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2017This vs Moto x4
Moto would probably have better camera ( wide angle is dope)
Moto has ip68 a... moreMotorola/Lenovo updating frequenly? hahaha what a joke. Anyway, neither is worth it. In the price range of X4 and Nokia 7, as has already been commented, there are many better options.
People who are commenting on for specs and comparing it with xiaomi or other brands propbably have'nt got the opportunity to hold any new Nokia phones like Nokia 6,
Its even the experience of holding the phone that will explain why it should not be compared with atleast those chinese manufacturers. And if you compare it with samsung or other top manufacturers you will certainly find out that it offers best value for its price. And by the way Nokia 6 has better perfoormance than many higher spec Xiaomi if you caompare that way, it can be seen in full review at gsmarena.
J2018, 19 Oct 2017Huawei 7 will be cheaper.Everything else will be cheaper than that crap
Q, 19 Oct 2017Will u stop justifying that Nokia 7 is 'decent'? For the US$400 price tag territory, people... moreAnd some people who still say its better to buy "this" instead of "that" phone because "this" phone is cheaper, is either a High spec low price low quality phone (Chinese Phone) fanboy. Or they cant afford it, simple as that. If you have money, you will really dont care about other so called High spec cheap price alternatives. Just Accept it. People nowadays was still believe in BRANDS POWER. All people in my country just dont care what specs your phone have if its a Chinese Phone. They just care about Brands like "Apple, Samsung, LG, Nokia, Blackberry, Sony, and Motorola"
Q, 19 Oct 2017Will u stop justifying that Nokia 7 is 'decent'? For the US$400 price tag territory, people... moreThe thing is. All nokia will eventually still work like a champ for 3 years, all phones you mention will not. Because you know. Pricey nokia phone always work after 3 freaking plus years. Im really hate people who always says its better to buy this instead of that because of price. Just use your so called High Spec Cheap phones and tell me how long it still work. People still buy this because its nokia.
I don't like bezelless display. Nokia, just expand the bezel so that I can put stickers.
Q, 19 Oct 2017Will u stop justifying that Nokia 7 is 'decent'? For the US$400 price tag territory, people... moreNokia 7 is not an overpriced phone!!!! And who says that the Redmi note 5 has SD 660 ???? It is rumoured to be SD 617.

People, do you know, or even realize that Nokia 7 has WAY slimmer bezels than the other Nokia?
The 7 has almost 74% display-to-body ratio, while Nokia 8 only manages up to 69%.
But who am i to judge everyone. I have a complain too about 7 not having 660 chip, which makes this phone really decent. But then again, for $400 and you get 6GB ram + 64GB storage. IsnÂ’t it cool?
ThereÂ’s only 1,2,9 left to be announced.
I believe 2nd gen Nokia Android would be much better phones. Just like Nokia Lumia with their so-innovative 920 and others (wireless charging, 60fps diaplay, OIS, super sensitive display, omg 920 was really good!!!!)
I hope Nokia will really improve for their next phone. Otherwise, iÂ’ll consider their phone (7 or 8).
Disappointed with screen size,5.2 is biased .They would have opted 5.5 instead of 5.2 .But still Nokia wins my heart, as Nokia will give timely updates that mi can't,Even M1 ai is not getting regular security patches. Let us wait and see reviews of Nokia 7 .
Cool. A very decent well performing chip set, solid upper mid range phone.
This vs Moto x4
Moto would probably have better camera ( wide angle is dope)
Moto has ip68 and turbocharge
Advantages of Nokia
More ram and ROM
Will probably be updated more frequently
TBH it boils down to whether you need better camera and IP rating or more ram and ROM combination. Price is almost same so perhaps there's that
Nokia fan boy, 19 Oct 2017Will you all stop pretending that Nokia 7 is bad?????? Look, this phone is totally perfect in ... moreWill u stop justifying that Nokia 7 is 'decent'?
For the US$400 price tag territory, people could get Mi6, Mi Note 2/3, Sharp S2, OnePlus 3/3T, and Huawei Honor 8 pro, and TONS of FLAGSHIP-grade phones, including last year devices, like S7/Edge, and LG G5/G6.
At this price range, the SoC people expected are SD660/653/652 (at least), not the SD630, which is practically SD625 mk III, not to mention the GLASS BACK which spells DISASTERS all over, and eMMC instead of UFS 2.0 which is cheaper by now.
Let alone the fact that this phone will likely to be OVERPRICED when sold outside China, making it less and less liked, compared to the upcoming Redmi Note 5 which will also come with SD630 and [STILL] aluminium back and newer design with less bezels.
In short, the ONLY people interested in buying this phone are either FANBOYS, OR ignorant people who STILL deluded by the "brand power" BS, and deluded people who STILL believed that "Nokia = quality" BS.
(Well, there might be FEW people buying it for the sake of reviews, but VERY few)
