Nokia E7 Qwerty slider smartphone

Symbian's last call?

High performance access to file storage

Well received

While some phones offer great design but fail to provide good signal reception or call quality, the E7 excels – working in several areas where reception is usually weak and call quality was consistently excellent. There's also a secondary microphone on the back of the phone to enable noise-cancelling, making calls all the clearer.

Nokia E7

A capable handset, but now more of an upgrade for the Nokia faithful

Verdict

The E7 looks great, its gleaming metal body resembling the unibody design of a Mac laptop. The camera is strong, delivering detailed, highly usable results, even if it lacks the stand-out 12Mp snapper of the N8. And battery life is exceptional. Overall, it’s only Symbian that feels a little tired, as though it’s holding the phone back. But while it looks less appealing than some smartphone systems, Nokia users, and there are many, will feel at home and contented the familiar interface. ®
