|If you take the Nokia E7 into your hand, you will notice that even if the phone is larger than most touch screen devices, it is still quite light and sturdy. Nokia is known for building strong phones and this is no exception. The E7 is light, thin and it can take some falls without repercussions. The 8MP camera is suitable for most situations and the video recording quality is above average. Let’s take a closer look at see what this phone has to offer.
The Nokia E7 runs on a 680 MHz ARM 11 processor, and it offers Open GL 2.0 graphics support. With the help of the processing unit, navigating the internet and running any programs will be a breeze, especially when considering the 256RAM of memory. The people from Nokia could have increased the performance a little bit, but even with these specifications, the phone performs fairly well.
The 8MP camera also falls in the mid range category and the dual LED flash helps a lot in certain situations. If you want to take photos and view them on the AMOLED panel, you will enjoy the quality, but you will notice some problems when transferring them to your TV. You can record 720p HD movies at 25 frames per second. The quality is above average, so you should take advantage of this feature.
The system behind the Nokia E7 is Symbian^3. This means that you won’t notice much of a change compared to pervious Nokia models, but if a formula works, why change it? You can download programs from the Ovi Store, so you shouldn’t have any problems finding the right browser, and you can even download Skype and other similar apps.
Nokia decided to forget about the FM transmitter, which might be a problem for those who usually listen to radio. You will have to settle for the MP3 player, which offers decent quality. If you take your handset out, the speakers will perform admirably and the sound won’t become distorted even at high volume. The same quality is offered for video playback, so pack as many movies as you can in those 16GB of space. You can even edit all of your videos and pictures directly from your phone.
The built in accelerometer will prove to be helpful when you go from vertical to horizontal and pop open your keyboard. The same is true for the proximity sensor which will turn off the light when you place your phone next to your ear.
Pros and Cons
On the downside, the phone is a little bit too large. Plus, the screen resolution is not exceptional and you can’t expand the internal memory. If you can get over these disadvantages, this is a great phone.
