Nokia is Facing criticism for its outdated operating system in comparison to the Apple iOS , Google’s Android and Microsoft’s Windows Phone, Nokia finally joined hands with Microsoft.
But before completely ditching its favoured OS (in 2016), Nokia isn’t unmindful of Symbian’s loyal users. Symbian Anna brings much awaited changes.
New better-looking circularicons, improved web browser and an on-screen QWERTY keypad in portrait mode along with a few tweaks in downloading apps from Ovi Store are the long overdue enhancements. And to reap the benefits of the upgrade, the X7 is Nokia’s first full-touch smartphone.
with its Angular designs,Nokia X7 is meant to stand out in a crowd. Grills on the corners add to the design element (the bottom grills actually hide the speakers). The Sim and memory slots are shifted to side,due to fixed back cover.
You need to log into Nokia Account while start up,which starts all nokia services. Similar to Symbian 3,Anna’s homescreen is divided into three customisable windows.The change in Main menu is Slight and unrecognizable.
Nokia X7 is quicker while configuring an Email account and simpler while browsing web.an icon at right gives access to many features like bookmarking,send,share,etc.
It comes with two HD games, Asphalt 5 and Galaxy on Fire. The gaming experience is good and more games can be downloaded from Ovi Store. The sound output of the music player is loud and clear.
The experience ofwatching videos and movies over the display is excellent. The phone has an 8 MP camera but with afixed focus. It also has a dual LED flash and features such as face detection but it isn’t anything out of the world.
Nokia X7 is greatly designed,Firm to handle,excellent for watching videos and listening music and playing HD games.
With the new OS, images transferred over Bluetooth landed automatically in the gallery, instead of the message box. It supports expandable memory up to 32 GB and an 8GB card comes withphone. It also supports USB-on-the-Go feature but the connector isn’t a part of the pack.
Nokia X7 still faces tough competition with Android and iOS in Smartphones.
