It's an okay phone with very good multimedia performance but kept down by an OS that's seriously showing its age. Look at the Samsung Galaxy S LCD or the LG Optimus Black instead....

Overall I really really like the whole look and design of the X7, it looks stylish while at the same time looking very professional. But there needs to be alot of improvements, firstly the camera has a fixed focus which I dislike, we should be able to...

As usual, Nokia's hardware is superb, with excellent design and well-crafted construction, but its Symbian operating system is a pain to use and lacks a well-stocked app store...

The hardware of Nokia N7 is essentially 2 years out of date at launch and the Symbian operating system unfortunately no longer has what it takes to compete with Android and iOS due to the lack of polish and innovation. Nokia has chosen to move to...

Cellular carriers know Nokia is in a difficult point in its history and, thankfully, have priced the X7 accordingly. It should be available free on contract in Europe and, on Rogers, is $30 on a (rather lengthy) three-year contract but also cheap on...

The Nokia X7's exterior is a treat for the eyes, but its internal components are a different story. A weak processor and outdated Symbian operating system mean this smart phone isn't a match for the iPhone or many Android...

While the X7 boasts some impressive features such as its sat-nav, snapper and large touch screen, we can't really recommend a handset that costs £380 and runs on an outdated operating system and connects to a poorly stocked, expensive app...

Although everyone’s focus, including ours, is on its operating system and the context of the market, the Nokia X7-00 is still a highly desirable high-end smartphone. The form, functionality, and the features are superb albeit still imperfect. The...

A great build quality and camera do the X7 some justice, but an expensive price-tag and dated software makes this one to avoid...

What the Anna update brings back is a sense of solidity to Symbian^3. And we hope that this continues forward. However, with Nokia’s focus now on Windows Phone 7, it will be interesting to see at what pace Symbian gets developed. However, speaking...

Nokia’s had a big screen presence for a long time, and the X7, like many predecessors made a debut in one of this year’s blockbusters i.e. Transformers: Dark of the Moon. It definitely has stage presence is what I thought, and was quite...

We're still waiting for the handset but another Symbian smartphone is here, in the form of the . The final flurry of Symbian handsets have been making their way out of the Nokia stable including the Nokia N9 and the Nokia E6 but if you're...

The X7 packs some decent hardware into its impressively robust frame, but the clunky and old fashioned feel of its Symbian OS makes it difficult to recommend. Nokia's much touched switch to Windows phone 7 can’t come soon...

The Nokia X7 ought to be a flagship smartphone – it has a vast screen, it runs a revamped touchscreen OS and it looks rather nice too. OK, it isn't 3D capable like the LG Optimus 3D or the upcoming HTC Evo 3D, but it has an 8MP...

The Nokia X7 has its good points, but in the end it doesn’t really do enough to compete with the big guns of top end Android...

Whilst Nokia’s software update has added missing features, it doesn’t solve many of the complaints we’ve had with previous Nokia Smartphones. The unresponsive touchscreen is frustrating, and some of Nokia’s apps seem buggy; we...

With a distinctive look, a solid build, a great screen and a decent camera, the X7 could have been a very attractive smartphone. But it's frustratingly slow and, although the interface is an improvement on Nokia's previous attempts, it still...

As far as Symbian phones go, this is the best you can get. Sleek and solid styling, a big beautiful screen, and excellent photo and video make for a very attractive package. Using it though, you can feel the age of the operating system. It’s still...
