The C7 reminds a lot of the popular XpressMusic 5800, although more rounded and also a lot thinner. The buildquality struck us as really good and the device feels very solid in hand. Its 3.5″ AMOLED capacitive touch-screen feels slick when tapping or swiping your way through its menu system, a lot more so than on LG’s Optimus One but is less impressive than Samsung’s Wave. It doesn’t boast the 1 GHz processor usually found on the top-end devices, still the 680 MHz ARM 11 CPU did a good job of keeping things smooth.
Nokia C7 Features
This smartphone packs HSDPA connectivity, integrated GPS with A-GPS receivers, 8 GB of internal memory, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and the faster Bluetooth 3.0.
Given that amount of functionality, its battery life of 1½ to two days is above average. The C7 makes use of an eight megapixel camera with auto-focus (sans the usual Carl Zeiss optics) that captures really good quality videos in high-definition (720p).
But its bigger brother, the N8, still takes the cake if it’s a good camera and video you’re after. We’re not big fans of Nokia’s new S^3 OS and the C7 offers users access to a less than average three home-screens, to populate with your chosen widgets. It also integrates social networking, including Facebook, but you have to be hooked up with a Nokia Ovi account (available for free though) through which to do this. Afterwards you can only manually link phonebook contacts with Facebook, which is a more cumbersome process than on BlackBerrys for example.
Overall the C7 is a solidly built device with good multimedia functionality. S^3 is a great deal better than its predecessor (Symbian Series 60), but in our opinion this new OS isn’t as good as iOS and Android. This leaves us eager to get our hands on Nokia’s first smartphone running their the new Meego operating system co-developed with Intel, to be released later this year.
