On display

Video can record at 720p HD and looks pretty good, certainly fine enough for YouTube standards. As for movie playback, the results look impressive on the nicely detailed screen, though there’s no option to stretch the picture to fit the display's dimensions, which can leave some letterboxed films looking cramped.

Nokia C7

Does the job, but in a rather clunky way

The battery life proved impressive, even with Wi-Fi on and various widgets accessing e-mail and social networking updates on a regular basis, I still got a little over two days of heavy use out of it.

Verdict

The Nokia C7 is a solidly built, very capable smartphone with a good screen, decent camera and exemplary battery life, but as usual it’s let down by the Symbian operating system. If you’re already a Nokia smartphone user, it won’t be too much of a stretch to accept the latest version, but newbies are unlikely to be converted from whichever OS they’re currently using. ®
