It is a great phone except the battery. I use emails (office email - push mail), the battery doesnt last even for a day. My E72 is much better phone.
All other features are really cool.
Am i missing something, any tricks for the battery.

Is there antivirus software pre_installed on nokia c7? If not,how can I download and install one? Any help?
Recently purchased the C7, did originally want the X6 but the shop was sold out so offered me the C7 for the same price. Initially was delighted with the phone, however it keeps on restarting itself unexpectedly and for no apparent reason. Happens on average every 5 mins if I'm not using it, though if I am using the phone, it can happen every 30 secs, usually when I start to use an app, for instance the Ovi Store, Maps, or sometimes even just standard procedures such as entering a new contact or typing a message.
Googled the issue, and appears I am not the only person to experience this. Few people suggested it was the Symbian^3 technoledgy, can GSMArena comment on this?
"The front and its faux silver frame are less pleasant though" Why? Isn't that frame stainless steel?
Hi, friend you can give me vote also. Your vote to i win it. Please support me. please give me i always remember to you, Thanks my link is below check
Can someone tell me if the C7 has SMS threading (the running SMS conversation that the Iphone has for example) I'm looking for a cheaper smart phone that has SMS threading?
pls someone help me ,recently i purchased nokia c7 but i am unable to open ovi applications on the phone ,every time when i try to start the application it shows "unable to connect to service" after spending huge amount i hadn't expected this from nokia.nokia is known for customer satisfaction,but i think they started cheating customers......so dear frnds please think twice b4 getting a nokia.i m really upset abt it as it was not expected from nokia....
Got this little fellah last week after my iPhone 3G drowned in a beer. This is very very nice phone. Yes, the camera cant handle closeup photos but otherwise this phone beats my older iPhone easily! And very slim and nice looking too.
i dont now why gsmarena accentuates to compare c7 with x10 in terms of camera quality and concludes that c7 is better?
I doubt x10 is not better than c7 camerawise.
me, 10 Nov 2010I've been doing alot of reading on symbian 3 and competing platforms. It is really sad to see ... moreNo you haven't been doing a lot of reading on Symbian 3 and Nokia otherwise you'd quickly realize you're full of crap.
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2010After reading full review i must admit nokia is smart.....they make it fixed focus its intenti... moreFULL Focus (EDoF) and FIXED Focus are not the same. FULL Focus uses asymetrical complex lens systems coupled with 2 stage lens AND image processing. FULL Focus provides extended Depth of Field, resulting in the entire image being in focus from 50 cm to infinity. FULL Focus is a latest technology advancement because the polymeric lens manufacturing process is cutting edge and complex. Each lends is formed under extreme precision with different polymers for each element. Fixed focus is an older tech and basically a conventional lens group with no mechanical nor digital adjustment, used mostly on really cheap phones.
Some people prefer Auto Focus for MACRO/Close-in shots or pictures where only the subject is in focus. I use a BCR app weekly...so AF is a requirement on my phone camera. To date, I cannot find a confirmation that the C7 or C6-01 EDoF camera can do BCR scans.
However, for simplicity, consistency of good shots for the average user of a camera on a phone, and speed of shot...the EDoF technology is compelling. The EDoF also lends itself very well to excellent video capture. Most people do not take macro video.
From a design standpoint, EDoF allows for thinner profiles. In terms of manufacturing costs, the lens systems and additional processing make it rather expensive.
I'm curious if GSMarena went back and retested the C7's 50cm close in performance with the SHARPNESS turned to low, like it did with the Nov 5 correction within the article. If the lower sharpness setting has a positive impact on Noise Reduction, is this sufficient for BCR programs to interpret data? I have seen one video on Youtube demonstrating the C7 is capable of bar code reading using upcode, a free app. However, the barcode was rather large. What I really would like to know is if the FULL FOCUS technology can support business card scans and day to day 1D/2D bar code reads.
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2010Hey GsmArena, someone on facebook compared C7 vs N8 and ask nokia which is better and they rep... moreThe only Nokia phones with CBD are the C6-01 (on a 3.2 inch AMOLED) and the soon to be released E7 (on a 4.0 inch AMOLED). N8 and C7 share the very same 3.5 inch AMOLED with anti-reflective coating...however...they were too early in development to receive CBD.
Anonymous, 22 Nov 2010Go to the English version of mobile-review.com and select Defective Flagships... Interesting,... moreIMHO, reviews by Eldar of Nokia products are biased. Considering he is purportedly under investigation (as a person of interest) by the Russian police for theft of Nokia Intellectual Property...one can understand why his reviews might be crappy.
Anonymous, 23 Nov 2010FM Transmitter - Is it stereo transmitter?Yes. It transmits in stereo over your selected FM band.
All new symbian^3 phones except N8 fail in camera due to lack of autofocus and Carl Zeiss lens.Are they cutting the cost of manufacture?
