Nokia X7 review
Buy Nokia X7 if you love gaming, watching movies and love listing to music. The phone has good features but then it is still relies on the Symbian OS. With Android, Windows mobile and Apple OS around there will be very few takers for the Nokia brand. Another disappointment is that the Nokia X7 does not support video calling.
As for me I would still prefer an android based handset, you can get a good one at the same price as the Nokia X7.
