Video: TracyandMatt’s unboxing and "demo" of the Nokia C7

| December 20, 2010 | Reply

If anything is to be unboxed, you can rely on to do it. And here they are – well it’s neither Tracy or Matt, it’s James – unboxing the Nokia C7.

So this is more of a “mainstream” unboxing, by mainstream I mean non-Nokia specific.


As you can read from the comments, it’s gloom and doom for you according to those highly acclaimed mobile analysts lurking the YouTube comments. But the video may be a large part to play in it.

Although it’s interesting to have a newbie playing about with a phone you’re demoing, when they get lost it makes it a million times worse (as opposed to someone who’s familiar teaching you how to work it).

e.g. Taking a Macro Photo with EDoF camera = FAIL. Trying to “TOUCH FOCUS” when there’s a shutter button and a shutter touch button = FAIL. It makes it look unresponsive and poorer in performance when you’re testing for features it does not have. e.g. I’d like to do some low light LED flash tests on the iPhone 3GS.

    Ah the famous “in how many ways is this not an iphone” review. You’d think that if you’re so confident in the quality of your own preferred choice, that that device would stand on its own merit, without having to rig a review into one that can never be won. What’s the best case outcome? That it _is_ in fact an iphone?

    You can do the opposite too, review the iphone pretending it is an N8, obv nothing will work, and obv conclusion iphone is a paper weight. Fair?

    As for the C7, I find it snappier than the N8 (has 1.01 firmware though), and I like the haptics more. Camera makes OK shots, obv not macro, and edof does not mean you can’t shake your way to a blurry picture, but overall certainly not bad (compare it to a camera phone, not a real camera). Also seems to have better sound output than the N8.

    That guy is a complete idiot. He is trying to connect to his own protected WLAN without providing the WEP key (or prividing a wrong key, in his third try). And he is blaming the phone for not connecting.

    We can all blame Apple for killing whatever common sense and brain power anybody ever had left.

  • Well, I have been following these guys from some time and they are not as bad as some of the comments said here. Yes human error happens but they are good reviewers. Besides it is unboxing, they always review the devices after spending some time on it.

    Thanks for posting this idiotic video Jay.
