I have been using Nokia C7 for 10 days. I find it one of the best smartphones out there!
Excellent design, good looking, it feels right in your hand, very responsive touchscreen, 8 MP Camera with FULL Focus, HD Video Recording at 720p, FM Transmitter, excellent battery life (2 days of heavy usage). browsing is awesome and fast both of 3G and WiFi, and music is just great!
What else do you need?
I personally, recommend this phone to anyone! Go buy it, you won't regret it! :)
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2010do u know anything about Samsung service in india, that is crap. no service existDear Friend,
It is clearly evident from your words that u don't turn ur head around while u walk over the streets in india or may be u are not aware of the things happening around u. U know one fact within the last few months almost 50% of the Nokia Priority Dealers have converted their shop under the signboard of Samsung Privilege Partner and authorized service center and I am 100% sure that u are not aware of this fact. Forget that I have a very good example to prove u this initially their were 2 nokia priority dealers and 1 nokia care center in my locality just 2 months back all those got changed to Samsung Privilege Partner and today we have 3 Authorized Samsung Privilege Partner and one Samsung service center which itself is a solid evidence that the samsung has a strong service network across the country.
Can any one of u tell me how long does the battery last on one single charge. Or in other words is it possible to view at least 2 movies non stop like in samsung phones. Actually the reason i am asking u this question is because i am planning to buy this phone i usually don't prefer buying nokia phones because they have lot of battery issues here in india. The nokia batteries usually swells even after normal charging. My brother wasted his money buying twice the batteries for nokia n81. Each battery of nokia n81 costs around Rs.1800/- or US$35 approx in india which is an absolute nonsense. This problem was faced by many nokia n81 users worldwide. So I don't want to waste my money buying such a crap phone for Rs.19K - 20k. Rather I would prefer investing my money for a Samsung Wave S8530. I trust samsung as they never disappoint their customers by selling some sort of junk. They sell the best quality phones in the market the best example of it is Samsung Wave S8500. So guys please help me by suggesting a relevant answer to my answer.
Here in the philippines in our store it cost 18990. I was amaze by this wonderful device. I will make my own review and hope to tisit my facebook to catch my review. Thanks.
ryan, 10 Nov 2010Glade to help.. the camera just simple.no auto focus.it just snap the view.but dont worry 8mp... moreHi Rayan , I have gone through your comments on C7, with my experience on N97 I am fully frustrated with phone getting stuck and so many other complications. Please let me know that are you fully satisfied with C7 and what would be the ranking on 1 to 100 assume basis compare with N8. Specially Web TV and what can get from WEB TV, and also how it will work and this is coming through GPRS etc.
subrata, 07 Nov 2010Nokia please make your phone with 1 ghz processor i am using Nokia n8 for two months everythin... moreHi,
Can you please tell me how is your N8 performing!!! I am a bit confused between N8 and C7 but i heard a lot of restart and hanging problem with N8 and does N8 have custom editable equalizers???
doc, 10 Nov 2010Thanks a lot buddy..
Your review helped..
Also,would like to know if the cam lives upto the ... moreGlade to help..
the camera just simple.no auto focus.it just snap the view.but dont worry 8mp give you very clear and sharp image when you put on you computer and it huge.so you can print nicely.there is photo editor which you can edit you picture and movie editor of couse.close up image good.clear and sharp.but you cannot compare to n8.its wont win.heheeh..but it good enough for me compare 3.2mp or 5mp.just play around with camera setting..that its..the video..wow truely HD..I take night video with LED on.the result is magnificient..truely clear , shard and HD (like divx codex with .avi extension)..realy amazing
the great thing is... i love to watch movie..with phone..etc naruto, anime, film , episode ..the screen superb..and the battery can last 4.5 hours with max volume and 75% display...the sound loud enough and music tweek , wow very nice.again ac3 sound codex cannot being use only acc+ .mp3 for movie..the movie will play but no sound.
Doesn't play dolby digital audio (ac3) through loudspeaker. When n8 can with same hardware, why c7 can't? It's a ridiculous move according to me.
ryan, 10 Nov 2010I buy it in kuala lumpur , malaysia.first day after release rm1450 , i just buy it and a week ... moreThanks a lot buddy..
Your review helped..
Also,would like to know if the cam lives upto the quality of 8 MP..especially for close up images..??
digital tunnel.., 09 Nov 2010 yes it 's a full metal.. you wrong..it not fully metal...only back battery cover is metal..and silver metallic like around liner edge for display.speaker grill and camera attach made of steel.entire body make from high quality plastic is hard, tough and rigid..just like nokia e71 body.its very slim..study and firm in your hand.
doc, 10 Nov 2010Hey ryan..for hw much did ya get it n frm wer??I buy it in kuala lumpur , malaysia.first day after release rm1450 , i just buy it and a week after that it drop rm1350..I dont want to take N8 because it the first production of new symb 3..first batch..and I assume a lot of hardware/software problem etc..and i correct..Its first introduce though newly hardware and software symb 3.So I skip for c7..just wait a while for second batch N8 production or e7..by then I will know any issue of N8 and nokia will rectify/fix it in there production line. The only thing I know c7 just announced 1 month and i already available in the market after that.Not like N8 where 6/7 month to release.Perhaps there is something hold it back for N8 release.
Can I make Video calls using yahoo messenger/skype/gmail on this phone? (its has a front camera but..does Symbian support Video calls by fring?)
I bought this phone c7 instead of N8.It good to use.no problem so far.Symbian 3 have a lot of improvement.Speedy enough.most important thing is realiable and good battery stand , hastle free.For me , most people not really know their phone and simply install apply/soft..setting..miss use...and got problem dont know what to do and just complance...I admit some got factory mulfunction..its a luck.suggest test it before you buy....dont pay if something funny to device....
Hi everybody, I suggest you don't buy this phone or any similar other phone, just waste of money. Guys, buy what you need, not what you want. What is this phone for, if you can't use it optimaly? I know most of you don't really know how to use it.
one way for nokia's n8 and this phone to be a success is for them to increase the number of apps. android just pass the 100,000 mark. nokia should also publicize this in USA media. if you made it in the US , you can make it everywhere. look at iphone and android, they are getting wide media coverage in the US and the world 's media have notice and are doing the same which is free publicity.
