Nokia E7 Review
Nokia E7 exhibits a top-notch call quality, which we are used to with the Finnish handsets, both in the earpiece, and on the receiving end, thanks to the noise-canceling mikes.
The 1200mAh battery is rated for 5 hours of talk time in 3G mode, which is not all that impressive, so you'll probably have to charge it daily.
Nevertheless, we were thrilled by the Nokia E7's boutique design, rock solid construction, and its choice of employing the most premium of materials. Despite the ho-hum for today's standards processor speeds, it is more than enough to run Symbian, and it offers many additional functionalities like an HDMI port, and USB-on-the-go. The 8MP camera quality is very far from the one on the Nokia N8, but it is decent to say the least, and the ability to record HD video is of course a good treat.
On the software front the Nokia E7 shines with its enterprise orientation - wide support for corporate email and remote IT management capabilities for locking and wiping it from afar. Push open that nice physical keyboard, and you will be dishing out work emails in no time at enviable speeds.
Add to this Ovi Maps with its free offline voice-guided navigation in most countries, and the only things of dire need for update are the browser and the interface, which should be coming further down the road. As an additional drawback, we can add the unimpressive number of apps found in the Ovi Store.
In short, if you are a Nokia fan, you won't be disappointed with the Nokia E7. If you have left the camp, or never been lured into it, the HTC 7 Pro with Windows Phone 7, and the HTC Desire Z with Android are both excellent choices with physical slide-out QWERTY keyboards.
Software version of the reviewed unit: PR1.0 - 013.016
