This is why Nokia needed a joint venture with another company (though I personally would have preferred an alliance with Google).
This phone had the potential to sweep the world. Until Nokia decided to skimp on certain details, like they've done with every smartphone in the past. For this particular model:
1) Put an 8MP camera on board...and then give it FIXED focus?
2) 720P WITH stabilization...yet only 25 FPS?
3) ARM 11 680 MHz processor when 1 GHz processors were common place in phones of this class?
4) Symbian (I don't care what version you put on it)...enough said.
Nokia has always done this with their smartphones. They build them up to almost being the perfect phone, but then shortchange it in a few details that leaves you scratching your head. Such as for points 1) and 2), why wouldn't you go the one step further and put in auto-focus and 30 FPS if you're already implementing all these other premium features?!?
You can be the biggest Nokia fanboy out there, but you're not thinking very clearly if you fail to realize how mismanaged the company was, and the last few months have proven this fact.
As a former Nokia user, I really hope they can revive their reputation with future models.
Hey guys can anyone please tell me whether xvid and avi movie files can be played in nokia e7??
Hmmm, well i think the GSM Arena crew shud make all these opinions known to the Nokia Company. Cos it'll be useless if we criticise and or just say things here and @ d end nothing happens. GSM Arena shud post these comments to Nokia. E7 is a good shit peeps!
i like it but e71 is unremovable battery and people say e71 not supported videocall, is it true?.
symbian is falling down nokia have to close symbian and launch new operating system like meego aur windows phone
symbian is falling down nokia have toh close symbian and launch new operating system like meego aur windows phone
Very expensive in Egypt
price range in Egypt about 775 EUR
and some agents offer it with 875 EUR
The only outstanding thing with nokia phones is the quality of the loudspeakers. Otherwise poor PROCESSOR and WEAK OS compared with Android. Ihave N8 and cant find anything useful from the OVI STORE. My cheap samsung phone running android has better applications and iuse it more often than my N8 which is twice as expensive. Now this E7 has no comparison with Samsung galaxy or HTC Desire.
Does anyone know when they will be releasing this phone in green or orange?
there's nothing new in this phone n8 is better than e7 in fields of camera and design...rest is same as n8..nokia have no sense of humour....making exact copy of n8 everything is same symbian ^3 os is same and all specifications are same camera is 8 mp in this phone whereas n8 is having 12mp only 1 thing is added and that is sliding qwerty keyboard and cost of e7 is also some above from n8 no point of buying this phone ....nokia these days either confused in what they r making or they have gone mad..
Anonymous, 10 Mar 2011You don't know what you are talking about at all, 16GB of memory is enough for most people.
... more3 days with the e7.
1)This phone is fast enough. Or u could say very fast.
2)Screen is lovely. Watch a sample clip to appreciate it.
3)Battery 1 full day of heavy use with 2 bars remaing.
4)Phone is more of a computer and requires 2 handed use for many operations because of the 4" screen and the large keyboard .
5)Cannot scan documents but you can take photo of a doc or label from 50cm up and then crop it. Works good but not great.
6)Need to use opera for browsing. Opera also saves u on your data plan.
7)Voice is clear even in loud or outside surroundings.
I will keep updating my views here.
I like E7 and have been waiting for it since it was announced.
But to my disappointment E7 is on pre order in India @ Rs. 35000 which is way too high for its features...
Though I like its features which are good and useful to me but I won't be taking it for more than Rs.26000 (N8 costs Rs.22000)...
why nokia choose a fix camera in Q1 2011?
why the battery is not replaceble?
why launch such a slow cpu?
why nokia decide to make such move after lost the leadership to iphone?

- But with the E7s price point, it's not really for most people.
Since when has this specification from 2005, 680MHZ they barely had 300MHZ once again Symbian is designed to run on slower processors.
- It might not be from 2005, but we have to admit that in this day and age, 680mhz and especially SYMBIAN is not cutting it. Mid-range handsets have 600mhz processors in them. This one's high-end. And then there's Symbian, which Nokia will be replacing with WP7 in their high-end phones later this year; an indirect admission that SYMBIAN is indeed not doing well against its competition.
Fixed focus once again is fine for people who want to take a quick snap this is a business phone not a cameraphone.
- Yes, and I really see businessmen taking quick snaps of their colleagues in the office or of the scenery on their way to work. Woohoo!
