Well I've been using N8 for the last 7months. I really like Nokia phones and have a habit of changing phones every 6months. So i was excitedly looking forward to the X7. But come on.. A phone with 3G but no front cam, no fixed focus camera and a 360X640 resolution for a 4inch display? That too at this premium price? Isn't Nokia keeping a track of what their competition is putting in and at what price? Come on Nokia!
Guys just listen: i've tested this phone for a week, it's not worth the pricetag. Don't expect something new with Symbian Anna. There are some changes but nothing special to mention about. Internet browsing is a bit faster bit still not so good as on Apple or Android phones. Only the headmenu interface is changed, when you click on a app in the menu, you're go back to the old Symbian UI. This S*CKS! Sometimes the screen goes white for a second when you skip from menu to apps and back. In one week i had two freezings of the software, only a hard reset (hold menu and power button for a few seconds (because you can't remove the battery) would help.
Only things that are good:
-good sound from stereo speakers
this is waste phone it does not contain any hardware updates than previous like c7 and n8 and camera does not contains the autofocus
its not a great phone as it dont have any hardware updates compare to previous one like c7 n8 waste waste dont buy go for another one better
once the hp is hanged, there is nothing much u can do. u cannot remove the battery, except to wait for the battery to drain out... lousy phone

Had this phone a week for testing a month ago (Netherlands). It's NO GOOD! Symbian Anna still sucks. It's a bit faster in the menu but you have still changes from new (Anna) to the old version. Web browsing is a little bit faster with loading, but still irritating to use/same problems the old Symbian has. The sound is excellent from the stereo speakers. I think this is the loudest sounding phone at the moment. The screen is absolutely good but why??? so less pixels for a 4 inch. (Re)placing simcart and memorycard is a CRIME! The one at Nokia who designed this, must be fired. Camera is not one of the best: blurry pics with some noise too, no autofocus and the camera rocker is hard to handle. Battery life in online modus (regular use) is 1,5 days, offline modus a little more than 2 days. Build quality is good: part steel and plastics like the N8. I don't like the placement of the menubutton surrounded with black shiny glass, one press on it and you have a fingerprint.....after a day of use it's get smudged.
My opinion after a week use: Symbian Anna brings you nothing new, only some things are working better/ a bit faster. For music listening/video watching lovers is this phone maybe a good deal, but the price is to high for that alone. If you're a Nokia Symbian lover: buy the N8 instead of this one. O.k. the screen is a bit shorter but has more to offer for the money.
not worthy pricewise... n also odd looks doent feel comfortable.. camera is bad n no front camera
On the camera side, which one is better ?? Nokia X6-16GB or the Nokia X7 ??????
hey...guyzz don't follow this.... it has no front camera!!!
Now a days 3G network found almost everywhere... so its important a secondary camera for all smartphones to make a better video call...
TheProfessional, 15 Jul 2011I really hate the fact that it doesn't have a front-facing camera. Also, the lack of a 1GHz pr... morewhy don't you get a front facing camera, instead of this & the processor speed is 720Mhz, but stripped down to 680Mhz for normal use, & it will be utilized max when itz needed.
