I purchased this cell phone 2day for 19000/- INR.....
n my opnion is just a word "WOW"......
its really handy and a gud cell phone for an average photographer.....even though there is no auto focus it has been provided vit face detection which comes in very handy in negeting hand vibrations caused........N reguardin all other ascepts it is equalent 2 Nokia N8 (HDMI-is an exception) and far better speed compared vit N8....
nokia c7 with 8mp camera sounds gud but fixed focus is not acceptable!!!
ramiz, 28 Oct 2010guess hw long does d batter stays awake in c7??same...Just one and half day.
Goks, 28 Oct 2010its for 20500 rs at the nokia priority dealer in punei knw tht goks i did cum with u
the pricing for this mobile is too high. It should be near x6 price . Camera has no autofocus nor good sensor . Headphones in box is of very bad quality.The 6700 slide has better camera. Os is also not stable nor good as bada or android. Only good thing is its design and amoled screen and multi format video player.. Only die hard nokia fan will go for this mobile. Otherwise most will go for samsung wave. So nokia have to decrease its price in coming days.

http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/reviews/item/12209_Nokia_C7_first_impressions.php will help everyone to understand & know about the big differences about the C7 & then find the N8 review or other phone review & make a decision.
Also if you want just a few interesting advantages I picked upon for quick reading here rather than traveling over to Allaboutsymbian. So here goes..
The camera is Fixed Focus design, but judging by the allaboutsymbian 6MP shots, the Fixed focus design will be easier to produce clear shots for the most average user. They turn out pretty nicely for quick shots.
Dimensions of C7 are 10.5mm thick whereas the N8 are 12.9mm thick for the camera protrusion respectivively.
The C7 has a better well spaced interior & labelling convention system for easy install of SIM & MicroSD cards. The 5800 was used as example by allaboutsymbian because it probably would of confused those people who don't read manuals of don't have time to.
The C7 has a removable battery system which makes it a little more convenient to remove, replace, travel lightly without need for battery charging devices.
The C7 has a great build quality over with no sqeaks or creaks with rounded edges, warm materials feel in hand. An overall slimmer profile.
The C7 has a bigger C: drive (350MB free, compared to 150MB free). Although the C7 & the N8 have MicroSD slots anyway.The C7 will be available on cheaper contracts.
It will be more affordable but the only drawbacks are you will get less accessories included with the phone. The USB connectivity cable is shorter and there's no Nokia Adapter Cable for USB OTG (CA-157). The C7 is USB OTG capable, but those wanting to connect USB devices such as memory sticks, mice, keyboard or hard drives will need to pick up an adaptor cable as an additional expense (around £10).
Allaboutsymbian also mention some slight differences within the software of the C7 comparing it to the N8. The menu Icons layout font size is smaller but seems perfect fit whereas the N8 font size is larger.
The C7 has some differences with various third party apps installed, variations of homescreen & icon layout. Some applications show additional information on the homscreen aswell. All additionals over N8.
The Major differences are:
1. N8 12MP Camera | C7 8MP Camera
2. N8 Hyperfocal | C7 Fixed Focus
3. N8 16gb Int mem | C7 8gb Int mem
4. N8 TV-out HDMI-out | C7 Component RCA AV TV-out
