Comparison – Nokia X7 Vs Samsung Galaxy S II [Detailed Review]

Market is getting overloaded with arrival lots of new gadgets, everyday we come across the launch of some new featured and improved devices. Recently Nokia has introduced its Meego 1.2 smartphone which is the world’s first device which do not have a single button. Today we came across the availability of Nokia X7 in India at the price tag of Rs. 22,000 (the price is not worthy in our opinion) because this handset do not deserve such a price tag because it is not an Android device, it is a Symbian Anna OS Device.

On the other hand, I am talking about the Samsung’s revolutionary device and also known as the successor of Samsung Galaxy S i.e. “Samsung Galaxy S II”. Few days, I have written a detailed about the whole handsets present in the Galaxy Series of Samsung (except the Gio :P). I have no hesitation while saying that Galaxy series of the Samsung is pretty awesome and full of powerful affordable gadgets.

Nokia X7 Vs Samsung Galaxy S II

In this article, I am going to arrange a fight between “Nokia X7 Vs Samsung Galaxy S II”.  The price of Galaxy S II is bit more than X7 i.e. Rs. 29,000.

Let’s have a look at the features of both the phones

Nokia X7 Review

This device is specially designed for Game enthusiasts, it holds a bit different design, and the phone shows tapered edges and features a huge screen which makes it beautiful and attractive. The body looks glossy and strong which can offer a tight hand over it.

Display and Looks

Nokia X7 runs an AMOLED screen, which is specially integrated for offering extra brightness, color depth and enhances the user experience. The screen is capacitive in nature and is protected by Gorilla Glass. The display resolution is 360 x 640 pixels.

Storage Capacity

The most important feature for the smartphones is their internal storage capacity; Nokia X7 comes with a small internal storage of 350MB. It allows expansion of memory via microSD card upto 32GB. The handset box comes with the 8GB card inside.

Operating System

OS matters a lot, and we all know, Symbian OS is very popular for its “Hang Problem”. I am talking about the problem of application load on the OS. Nokia X7 is running on Symbian Anna OS. Anna is the latest version of Symbian and offers better multi-tasking experience. Anna offers location-based features too.

Precisely Anna update has focused on improving the browser by making it more user-friendly and fast performer.  Moreover, you will get portrait-oriented virtual QWERTY touch keyboard which offers better typing speed and less time wastage.

Processor and Speed

Nokia X7 is powered by single core 680 MHz Processor which is paired with Broadcom BCM2727 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit). GPU plays very important role in improving and enhancing the graphics capability of the smartphone.

Camera and Photography

Nokia X7 is sported with a high-end camera of 8MP which is a fixed focus camera with Dual LED Flash. The camera provides the image resolution of 3264 x 2448. You can capture HD video recording @ 720p.

Fixed focus camera is not preferable and its low video quality makes it unacceptable. I am not able to believe on the fact, Nokia X7 do NOT have any secondary camera! Such a high price phone and no secondary camera, it is quite undigested fact.

Final Thought for Nokia X7

I am quite disappointed with Nokia X7, neither the processor is quite powerful nor the OS. Even the camera is fixed focus, NO Secondary camera. All these factors clearly indicating and forcing me to say a BIG NO!

Samsung Galaxy S II

Samsung Galaxy S II is an awesome looking smartphone with stylish looks. The phone is bit extra than the size of Nokia X7 but still the weight of Galaxy S II is less than X7. Nokia X7 weighs 146g whereas S II weighs 116g.

Display and Looks

Samsung Galaxy S II is a slim and sleek smartphone and already placed in the list of thinner phones in the market.  Most of the times, S II is compared with iPhone 4 because the rectangular design makes it looks like iPhone.

Galaxy S II is featured with enhanced Super AMOLED Plus technology screen, this screen is more enhanced than the screen of Nokia X7 because both the screens have the difference in the ppi (pixels per inch)

More pixels per inch = Better screen quality

  • Nokia X7 = 183 ppi
  • Samsung Galaxy S II = 218 ppi

On the other hand, the size of the screen is 4.3-inches and offers a higher resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The screen of this handset is also protected by Gorilla Glass.

Storage Capacity

Galaxy  S II is added with huge internal storage of 16/32GB which is quite a huge space. Moreover, it supports memory expansion via microSD card upto 32GB.

Operating System

No doubt, it is a Galaxy series phone it is leashed with Android OS. World’s fastest growing and loving OS is installed in this smartphone, which will make your decision tighter to get your hands on this smartphone.

It is integrated with latest version of Android i.e. Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Android Market will make your smartphone loaded with lots of powerful applications. Android OS is integrated with TouchWiz 4.0 UI to make the user-interface easy and interactive.

Processor and Speed

Samsung Galaxy S II is powered by Dual Core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 processor paired with Mali-400MP GPU. This powerful processor is nowhere comparable with Nokia X7’s processor.

Nokia X7 is having Single core processor with less speed and slow processor whereas Samsung Galaxy S II is powered by Dual core processor, no more words are needed.

Camera and Photography

Samsung Galaxy S II is sported with the same degree of camera as in Nokia X7 but video capturing capability of this phone is better it offers HD video recording @ 1080p. It is also added with 2 MP secondary camera which offers more advantage in video calling and conferencing.

Other features of camera are geo-tagging, touch focus, face and smile detection, autofocus, LED Flash and image stabilization. Neither this camera in S II is fixed-focus nor does it hold low video recording quality.

Final Words:-

Nokia X7 is a nice try from Nokia but still is not upto the mark and at the level of expectations of customers. Go with SGS II
