GLOBAL – Just over one month ago, the Nokia C7 started shipping from the factories and was sent to customers around the world. Many were drawn to this new phone for its curves, its glossiness and for the new Symbian OS, but at a lower price point than the Nokia N8. Let’s take a look at what other people think of the Nokia C7.

The Nokia C7 has been seen as the little brother to the Nokia N8 by many. This is mostly down to the slightly lower camera spec and price. But that doesn’t mean it deserves any less attention. On the contrary, even though it’s smaller, it can still stand tall against its brother.

Rafe Blandford praises the Nokia C7 with these words:

AllAboutSymbian: Based on my first impressions, that it is one of the best Nokia devices of the last five years. A combination of excellent design, attention to detail and potential of the Symbian^3 platform make this a very competitive smartphone.

Phil B from NokNok puts the Nokia C7 beside the Nokia N8 for simple analysis of size and shape, with loads of photos too, then goes into more detail on why they like the new Nokia C7.

NokNok: We also love the new design direction, with the curvy style and high quality materials sure to win the Nokia C7 lots of new fans.

The folks over at Phone Arena take each piece of hardware and software, from design and style to performance and video calling.

Phone Arena: The build quality is also great, and we would say it comes in at very fair price-point to boot.

Rich Trenholm, over at Cnet, has written a review and offers some good and bad points to the Nokia C7.

Cnet: Slick and quick switching between apps, contacts, pictures and media, versatile widgets and contacts tied up with your social networks give Nokia’s new phones a brighter outlook. The C7 is a sturdy, glossy smart phone with plenty going for it.

GSMArena have gone from soup to nuts in a seven-page review. It sounds quite a lot, but they cover pretty much everything the Nokia C7 has to offer.

GSMArena: The screen is among the best we’ve seen from Nokia (same as the N8 screen in fact) and the rest of the spec sheet should be music to Nokia fans’ ears.

ERosher from EzineMark seems to like the design and style and has much more to say. The Nokia C7 has done a superb job of integrating a high quality screen with the improved operating system. Throw into the equation the superb media and software bundle and the result is a stylish phone
