Nokia C7 2 Stars

« Back to reviews Nokia C7

Look and feel

Looking like an elongated pebble, the Nokia C7 looks and feels rather cool, thanks to its metal finish.

Ease of use

The capacitive display is pretty impressive, but its widgets and news feed are diminutive and its home screens too cluttered.


The Nokia C7 has plenty on offer feature-wise with Wi-Fi, an eight-megapixel camera with dual-LED flash, GPS and a capacitive screen measuring 3.5 inches.


We found the browsing experience disappointing, and while the camera and sat-nav are impressive, the C7 does not offer a smooth user experience overall.

Battery life

Battery life is good on the C7 as on most Nokia handsets .

The cool metallic styling is appealing.
It’s a shame that the small size of news feeds and widgets means you need to open them up to appreciate them fully.

  • Ease of use 2 Stars
  • Features 4 Stars
  • Performance 2 Stars
  • Battery life 4 Stars

Final verdict: 2 Stars

The Nokia C7 is an improvement on earlier models, but the Symbian^3 operating system lets it down.
