The Nokia X7 is built in a strong stainless steel body with a scratch-resistant Gorilla glass screen. It boasts a display resolution of 360 x 640 pixels on a large 4-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen making it well-suited to various mobile applications including web surfing, casual gaming, and different media applications.
The Nokia X7 runs on a Symbian Anna platform giving users user-friendly access to different applications with an improved graphics interface. Although inside the X7 is a 680MHz ARM 11 processor with 256 MB of RAM, its a bit under-spec'd compared to many of the latest 1 GHz and dual core processors available today.
Belonging to Nokia's Music Edition line of handsets, the X7 delivers superb audio clarity with an enhanced audio chip from the Nokia 5800. Its two built-in loudspeakers are loud enough and do not suffer from any kind of distortion. MP3s and movies sound rich and brilliant with headphones.
The X7 takes pictures with an 8-megapixel fixed-focus camera for high quality 3264 x 2448 printouts. It has a handy dedicated camera button, a dual-LED flash and decent low-light performance. Also, the X7 amazingly records 720p resolution HD videos at 25 frames per second.
Internet connectivity with the X7 is possible with quad-band GPRS, EDGE, 3G, or HSPA networks to choose from. The new Symbian Anna web browser delivers a convenient way of browsing the web and reading emails by enabling users to zoom and scroll web pages smoothly.
In addition, the mini USB port connects the phone to a PC or laptop for file transfers as well as allows USB charging. Battery life for the X7 has an astounding standby time of 430 hours and 6.5 hours of talk time.
The Nokia X7 competes with the latest top-of-the-line smart phones but will stand out with its unique styling, superb features, and stunning sound quality. It will impress audiophiles looking for a great portable sound device but still enables them to get connected with everybody via internet or any mobile network.
