I finally got my hands on nokia c7. I have to say that its a massive improvement over symbian^1 or s60v5. Everything seems perfect now. No lags, no waiting..... nothing. The screen's sensitivity is just too good. Sometimes I don't even know I even touched the screen.
The music and video player intrigued me the most. The album flow is sooooo good. No lags and the implementation of kinetic scrolling is an added plus. One thing most people might have missed is that the tiny bar at the bottom which signifies the position we are at can actually be moved. So if we have to go to the end of the albums then all we have to do is drag this bar to the right end and all the album covers flow to the end with the smoothest of effect and slows down to a halt. Man....it looks so cool. Iphone album flow is nothing compared to the speed and usability standards of symbian^3 album flow.
And the video player.....all I can say is that it played everything.....simply everything I threw at it (of course videos).
Oh btw a new application of around 28 mb size has released. Its some kind of gallery app with lots of effects and transitions. Check out n8fanclub for more details.

Just a small review for people who want to know about the dis-advantages of th... moreMost of your stated disadvantages can be easily rectified.
First of all, quick office pdf Le is a total waste when it comes to viewing pdf documents. I seriously recommend 'Alternate Djvu reader'. Once you use this, you will never look back.
Pr2 update for C7 is already out. Its got new browser and portrait qwerty etc. Just check n8fanclub.com for new stuffs for symbian^3.

Its main advantages are its stability and free sat nav..not many people know its has a Pentaband 3G which not many phones have and is pretty useful if you travel a lot,also wifi b/g/n which in my experience is much better than other phones I've used, the music player and its cover flow are top notch (you have to see and hear it to know what I mean)and the touch screen is very smooth with good sensitivity and haptic feedback, with good kinetic scrolling.
Other disadvantages may be fewer apps as compared to the competition, but to be frank I've been able to get all the apps I wanted or needed, and also,if you're not familiar with symbian, the menu structure takes some getting used to.

N i wana k... moreThe easiest way is to connect your phone to a good wifi network, run software updater which U'll find in your phone under applications -> Tools, and follow the prompts..if it asks you to update using OVI suite then you need to install Ovi suite on your pc and update via USB cable..
miyaw, 11 Mar 2011guys i accidentally remove the preinstalled f secure..is it going to affect the phone?No it wont..you can re-install that from ovi store..its not the full app, just the anti-theft is included by default, you have to pay to enable anti-virus.
AnonD-3112, 12 Mar 2011Hi friends.. Just a small review for people who want to know about the dis-advantages of th... moreI agree with what you've said..rumour has it the next update will bring improvements to the browser..I hope it does cos I just cant bring myself to use the present browser, Opera or even UC browser is much better, and PDF readers have always been bad on symbian devices..being bundled with Quickoffice, I dont expect too much of an improvement in that either. But like you said..there arent too many cons to live with in the C7. Cheers.
Just a small review for people who want to know about the dis-advantages of this phone. Let's begin now..
I haven't found any major disadvantages though, small ones are accptable as well as inevitable, to be honest.
1. PDF reader (quick office LE 2.5):
I found that somehow, whenever I open a PDF file, it lags while scrolling, zooming and panning. Moreover, there could have been a Pinch Zoom option here.
May be, a later firmware update should rectify this one.
2. The "Full-Focus" Camera:
Nokia C7 has an 8Mpx camera, sounds cool, but HEY!! It's not autofocus, but fixed. Not that it's poor in imaging quality, but you'll anyhow not get great images indoors, even if you have ample light. The pics taken in the dark, with only the flash, are even inferior than a 5Mpx autofocus w/ flash.
Video quality, and outdoor photos (in day-light) are simply outstanding though. Really awesome, to say the least.
3. Old Web Browser:
Yeah, you can't get away with this browser anymore Symbian. You've gotta get a move on here. The web browser is very old indeed. You wouldn't feel the Symbian^3 power while surfing. Although, the Wi-Fi & 3G connectivity is fast, the browser may spoil the fun for you. But again, it's nothing that a Software Update can't fix. We've always had updates coming in at fairly regular intervals from Nokia. Just don't keep us waiting Nokia People. :)
So, as I stated, I haven't found anything major to crib about. The device is really stable, feature-rich and I don't find any other Cons that I can tell you about at the moment.
Just hoping we get the Firmware Updates soon enough to make up for these hand-picked issues. :)
Hi buddies! Pls, someone tell me how should i update this phone to the lastest ver? N i wana know what's the easiest way to do this! Thanks dudes!

I bought my Nokia C7 on Jan 14. Till last week, it was working fine. Now there is a problem in texting. if you are typing some long word like "accommodation", "Electronics etc... the message window get closed in a second. I will have to type the whole message again. I put a complaint and waiting for the reply. Anybody got some solution? Using the latest phone software.
Latest price of nokia c7 in my place is 15800 INR. Gosh....it was 18k a couple of weeks ago. Good, I now can get a 16gb and an USB OTG cable under my previously assumed price of 18k. Usb otg cable is worth 400 inr.
Oh btw, prices of all nokia phones including the S^3 ones will increase by 4% after monday. So this is the lowest price ever.
