Good phone if upgraded from Anna to Belle
Ive had this Nokia X7-00 for a year now.
Using this phone with Symbian Anna is a disaster with the phone hanging a lot! But once upgraded to Belle its become more stable and much more responsive improving the touch sensitivity as well.
*The touch is better then the N8-00.
*The colour display is extremely good for HD 1080p & 720p video's that ive put into it. 420p Video's arent that bad as the phone tries to adjust its display to best viewing possible.
*Movies take a very long time to enter because Nokia converts the format into their own.
*The cammera is is good, but only in the light as dark shots come out a bit hazy or the flash is overpowering. It dose not have the auto-focus feature in it thus a small shake can rewin the entire pictures thus only fixed position pictures and not moving objects.
*App's are limited due to the quality of app's produced for it.
* Games are real fun to play if their the HD ones but if not there arent many nice games to download just lie the app's.
*Phone build is solid! Dropped it a few times but its strong as ever.
*Phone design is a eye catcher with its sexy finishing, cut edges and its silver metal back finishing.
*Music play,this is one of the most ideal phones.
*Memory is depending on your micro SD card size and obviously the bigger the better. Nokia X7-00 comes with a 8gb micro SD card but it can be upgraded up to maximum 16gb.
*Internet browsing is really good and fun once you get used to the buttons, features and options available there. Also i somehow feel that the firefox browser that come with the phone loads web pages much faster then other phones that I've seen.
*Batterey life is really not that good if connected to the internet all the time. It can last you a good 12hrs if ur using the internet a lot. If not the normal batterey consumption is good as it can last you a long time, 48hrs perhaps with out using internet and just watching movies, playing games and listening to music at best...
*email feature that comes standard is good, tho sometimes it behaves funny not loading properly.
*Social app is a good idea but a real trouble giver when delicate tasks need to be done on ur facebook or twitter and yes the layout is not that ideal at all.
*Map's is really good just that if ur not on a data plan it will take a long time to catch the GPS signal to start telling you the rout. Really good map but the loading time disappoints.
*Under Accessories I just bought the new Nokia Monster Purity HD in ear headsets and they work extremely beautifully, but the problem with the ear piece is it compatable with the new Nokia Windows Phone n Lumia phones so the volume up and down dose not work and the skip forward and backwards too. Only the call answering works on it.
Overall this is a good phone for new smart phone users to get used to the smart phone world. It dose have it's down days when it behaves funny hanging and all, but a simple restart fixes it (most times)... Hope this review was useful and mind you I've been having this phone for 1 year plus so I've got roughly a good idea now how it runs. Pls tell me if other wise thank you.
