The Nokia C7 looks like a phone which includes most of the N8 features. All you have to do is put up with 8GB less Internal memory, no HDMI, 8 MP camera. Looking at the compressed don converted 8MP - 6MP images. These images look good enough especially to print to 6x4 photo size pictures.
Although I can't say how good the uncompressed 8MP images will be when blown up A4 size or your monitors native display size. So it's not good for photographers anyway, well surprise neither is the N8 either. Get a DSLR camera for that with RAW file format for no compression.
For most consumers not photography geeks this phone's 8MP will be enough based on what I have seen for Standard family photos again on 6x4 at 6MP is fine, maybe at 8MP you will be able to get more stable larger images like A4 perhaps - you what! easy you are talknig 8MP's here. Go figure!
This phone looks likely to trail in the footsteps of the N5800. As it looks like this will be the Music phone because it obviously has Media key for playback controls of the Music Player. So this is't for the Photography people. Again I'd call this phone the best all rounder based on the needs of most average consumers - families. The loudspeakers are bound to be better than the N8's loudspeaker.
The N8 may indeed be better for gaming, but I'm not sure what GPU this C7 has. Maybe it's the same unit as most of the hardware is the same hardware for Nokias current range of phones with slight differences. I have been impressed by the stability of the images at 6MP for this phone tho. I can only say if you can do with less space & do without HDMI or 12MP for larger images.
Well then you know what is for you, & what is for you It's always going to be a case of compromise here. So good look on your choice. lol
zoheir samsung, 26 Sep 2010fake corby!!Yup, it's a fake corby.
But it's better anyway, so what's your problem?
IMO autofocus is more important than 8MP in camera.
Poor nokia with wrong features set up>
at a time when even micromax is looking forward to making AF cam in mobiles Nokia is giving it all away. Shit this sounds funny. It does matter when you have AF cam on your mobile. You can scam documents, take macro shots and email them. I guess Nokia has some idiot who only knows that Fixed focus cam can save some money...not knowing that you are loosing customers on such good phones. Its like digging their own grave and letting Samsung make all the hay... sad but true.
c7 is good in specification and look. My doubt is wheather the down loaded ms excel & word in net can be viewed in the screen without dislocating the verticals....?
Nice phone , but Symbian 3 doesn't look that amazing , its time for Nokia to cut the chase and start producing android phones...Personally i m Nokia fan(myself having X6) , Symbian is OK, but android is amazin, Nokia with andorid would be awesome !!!
Aman, 22 Sep 2010Main advantages of this phone in my opinion 1. 3.5 inches AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 1... moreI completly agry with Aman.now we can expect that nokia is now coming back on the track
And for those of you making noise. You can take shots of notes, bill boards and shit like that without af. Af doesn't allow you take macro shots. You need a macro lens to do that.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2010Or another simple question: will this phone able to read QR codes? Of course it would be able to read bar codes. You don't need af to do that.
People are just making a big deal out of this af issue. It's nothing. I compared two shots of an object at 3cm on my 5mp n95 8gb. One with af, and the other with the scene mode as landscape hence effectively disabling af. On inspection, there was no difference between both images zoomed up to 50%. Only when i zoomed to 100% could any loss of detail be seen. The non af photo was better than any image i can remember taking on my nexus.
Lack of Af doesn't render photo's unusable. It just doesn't resolve as much detail. Infact, i turn it off on my n95 cuz i can't always afford the second wait. Its annoying.
I read someone post that he would prefer a vga camera with af to an 8mp without it. That is really dumb. I would prefer an 8mp without af to a 5mp with af. Why? Cuz the 8mp will without af, still resolve more detail than the 5mp no matter how focussed the af is lol. An 8mp shot without af, resized to 5mp, would most probably be sharper than a 5mp af photo especially when nokia is written on its behind.
I'm not implying that af would'n have been nice but still, it would have made the camera module twice as large. Hence, the phone thicker, more expensive and more fragile. Yes, more fragile. Af cameras contain moving parts. A fall could dislodge em as was the case with my n95. I had to have the whole unit changed.
very good specs
but crap design, looks so dumb with this samsung style (green and red buttons, oval shape, cheap feeling)
This Fon HAS a autofocus (Please comapre the fones on any nokia websites).... Then You can find that it has a autofcus...Rather Nokia C6-01 AND Nokia E7 does not have autofocus !!!!
