The Nokia C7 is one of the very best phones that Nokia makes. The Nokia C7 has a full touch glass display that really shines above the competition. And, if you are looking for applications for your Nokia C7, you can find thousands of them at the OviStore. We have a feeling you’ll really like the camera too. At 8 megapixels, it’s a dream come true for an avid photographer.

Device Details and Overview

General

This device runs on both 2G and 3G networks. On the 2G side, the specifications are GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900. On the 3G side of things, the specifications are HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100. It was released in October of 2010.

Size

The dimensions of the unit are 117.3 x 56.8 x 10.5 mm, 64 cc and the weight is 130 g. This unit fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and has a really huge screen, perfect for displaying photos. It has a 360 x 640 pixel resolution and has a screen of 3.5 inches. This unit also comes with an accelerometer that will rotate the screen image according to how you hold it. Very cool!

Sound

There are three different alert types on this phone: Vibration; MP3 and WAV ringtones. It also comes with a built in loudspeaker and 3.5 mm jack so you can use headphones with this smartphone. You can use this phone to play mp3 files and completely replace any mp3 player you were using before. Smartphones are great for that and the batteries last much longer than traditional mp3 players too. If you want to change the way your phone vibrates, there is vibration software that will allow you to change the way it goes. As a last resort, you can use bigger WAV files to be set to go off when your phone rings. This is a file form that has long since been replaced by MP3.

Memory

There are nearly an infinite number of entries and fields you can use to store your numbers and names. There is also Photocall feature that will allow you to select a photo to call instead of a name or a number. Being able to call people according to their picture works out better for some people! You can get access to detailed phone records through a period of 30 days since the time of the call.

As far as the actual memory goes, there is 8 Gigabytes of storage, 256 Megabytes of RAM and 1 Gigabyte of ROM. This is plenty of room to store your photos, videos, MP3 files, WAV files and any applications and games you can download. With such a small resolution size of 360 X 640, this is small enough to allow 256 megabytes of RAM to run complex applications without any hangups in speed. You see, with smartphones, a smaller resolution size can yield blazing fast application speeds. Remember that. Finally, there is a microSD slot that accommodates up to 32 gigabytes of memory storage.

Data Transfer

With GPRS class 32 and EDGE class 32, this unit comes fully equipped. There is also 3G HSDPA 10.2 Mbps download speed and HSUPA 2 Mbps upload speed. It also has a wireless LAN and Bluetooth support. It doesn’t have an infrared port but those are seldomly used anyway. It has microUSB V2.0 on the go support and works incredibly well. The 3G support is fantastic and running your wireless network on this phone couldn’t be easier. You will be amazed by the speed this phone has.

Camera

With 8 MP, 3264×2448 pixels, fixed focus, dual-LED flash camera, you will get some amazing photo opportunities with this smartphone. Not only that but you can expect to get some amazing video capture as well. With 720p@25fps with video stabilization, working with this smartphone on a photo/video basis is a dream come true. You can’t do much better than this.

Features

The operating system of the Nokia C7 is the Symbian3. There have been thousands of applications and software titles developed for it.

There is a WAP 2.0/xHTML, HTML and RSS feeds browser included with the phone. There is also a stereo FM radio and FM transmitter that will allow you to broadcast your music to external speakers as long as you have a hook up. There are downloadable games and even GPS support. You can find your way with OviMaps 3.0. There is also lots of productivity software that comes stock on this phone. Things like WebTV, TV-out, digital compass, active noise cancellation, MP3 player, Power Point, Adobe Reader and more. All in all, the features are quite impressive but as with all good things in life, there are drawbacks and in this case, drawbacks are represented by high SAR levels which can be dangerous to your health, so be sure to keep the time you spend talking on any mobile phone to a bare minimum.

Battery

The battery has 552 hours of standby time on the 2G side and up to 648 hours on the 3G side. Get up to 9 hours and 30 minutes on 2G and up to 5 hours on 3G.
