E7 look promising but it lacks a 2 things specially at time when it is being released and the phones it's going to compete with.
1GHz processor; 512 RAM (256 is less). But I am Nokia will come out with E7-00 with these things.
I liked no support for memory cards; phone will be faster. Waiting for the phone in India.
Why everyone here cries about the bloody camera? It's a phone ffs! And more importantly it's a business phone! take for example blackberry's camera - sh*te. If you're really a photo freak, get yourself a proper digital camera. The whole idea of the camera in phone is to be able to take random simple pictures time to time. Some of you here seem to be looking for professional camera with ability to call!! ????
For the number of functions this phone can produce and if it won't lag, it's the best out there (with the qwerty keyboard). As well as that, i've read some review where guys where running 10+ apps at the same time including couple of browsers and nfs game and it didn't lag at all, therefore why moaning about low processor/memory? if that's enough for the symbian OS why would you put bigger, which uses more battery or produces more heat? I don't think anyone's keen to see those iPhone4 messages about overheating phone! are you?
Crying about too weak processor without even trying the phone first is the last thing you guys should do!
Can you use the front camera for 3G video calls? I mean phone to phone video calls (NOT Skype). ^^
I think the main reason there is no memory card slot is that this is above all an enterprise phone. Because the main storage can be fully crypted and there are loads of other security features, E7 is one of the few phones you can actually use confidential info with.
i can't wait to get this phone, i'm a nokia FAN, hate android and iphone phones ..theyr'e sux.
I Love You E7.. you are so cute as my dream girlfriend.
but people are talking about you that you fixed focus is bad. how to they know if u haven't launched yet.
your comparision as same as gf because world always talk about gf that she is bad lady.. but she is the best for user ;)
anyhow i love you E7.. i will buy you.. fast come in market..!! your shape is very smart man.. Keep it up Nokia..!!
EDoF cant take macro shots. Anything closer than 50cm and its blurry as hell. And autofocus is much better for shooting videos.
I'd take autofocus over edof anyday. Edof is really inferior
the typical user of this fone will be ppl with eyeglass lenses like bottoms of coca cola bottles.
4 inches for 640x360 resolution? When 3.5 inches is enough for the N900s 800x480 resolution? Nice for the half blind and cataract patients, for the average person its useless. cant browse d web on 640x360, and 2.9 inch is enough for that resolution (nokia 5530)
Stuntman, 19 Oct 2010Why are people equating fixed focus with out of focus? Some of the sample pictures I've seen ... moreWell, fixed focus is a disadvantage for lighting purposes especially video recording.
And since E7 is a lot more expensive than the N8, it is a slap to the face since it has an under average camera despite having 8mp.
And come on... E7 without Carl Zeiss lens? Boo!!!
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2010Yes for sure...Nokia has many phones with this kind of fixed focus camera...instead they have ... moreWhy are people equating fixed focus with out of focus? Some of the sample pictures I've seen with fixed focused cameras appear to be in focus. Not only that, both the foreground and background are in focus where as auto focus cameras generally can only focus on either the foreground or background image, but not both.
I think this phone is very good looking and i like it, EXCEPT for the fixed focus camera which i don't understand why =(
y r these nokia people not all creating phone models worth the money...it really sukc in its looks....for so much of money 500$ and above these phones are looking so ugly... same symbian boring OS in all models... no difference in the features.. an 150$ apps is more or less equal to a mobile of 500$...i seriosuly hate its looks....alll models 75% resemble same..no diference at alll
This phone does need 1ghz or higher or 565mb or higher. Whether or not its running symbian, ios, android or some other crap feature phone OS.
Just like w7/vista/xp, linux and osx would need faster processors and more ram while all of those os's could run perfectly fine on a 500mhz p4 processor.
Whether or not mobile applications actually need this much power is not really the concern however; improved processing and graphics performance with little to no additional increase in energy needs will allow future phones to actually be much more efficient in terms of power. This is because ultimately, power efficiency relies in a big part on the ability of the hardware in the phone to complete a task quickly and return to an idle state where it consumes very little power.
biggest disappointment was there is no card slot,hope it'l rectified soon
Yes for sure...Nokia has many phones with this kind of fixed focus camera...instead they have given less MP with focusing ability. I would not like a blurred picture with size of 8MP.
This is for the people who dont understand the specifications of mobiles. The SYMBIAN mobiles are great multitasking systems, they need really less RAM and Processing power. So a 680 MHz CPU for SYMBIAN is enough to run that mobile like hell. Some says that's not enough for there mobiles. Sometimes (or i say most times), people leaves the background with lots of applications running, in which the WEB BROWSERS are most RAM Hungry programs. This leads to shortage of RAM for other application you will open. So please exit the applications that are not in use.
Any if SYMBIAN mobiles are powered by 1GHz or more CPU, that will be of no use. For example a 6 Core Processor of PC is not useful until and unless you use it for 3D Designing softwares, Video Decoding, etc. If you just want to play hardcore games on your PC then only 4 Cores out of 6 Cores will be used. 2 Cores will be untouched by the system, or I can say they are waste.
I wish everyone will understand.
