The Nokia C7 is another return to form from Nokia on the hardware front. It's well made, has great battery life and call quality puts many rivals to shame. However, except for the incredibly useful OVI maps application, the software trails pretty much all other smartphones for ease of use and - in some cases - functionality. As such, we think that anyone used to slicker OSes like iOS, Android and WebOS won't be tempted by this device. On the other hand, fans of previous Nokia and Symbian devices will probably see this as a nice upgrade. Regardless, with this phone only costing about £50 less than the much better N8, we'd recommend that anyone tempted just stump up the extra cash and go for that phone instead.
