Carl Zeiss certified lenses were once synonymous with high-end in the field of cell phone photography. And, in less than two years since Nokia’s official return at the beginning of 2017, 24 cell phones have been launched with high efficiency, but only a few of them can be linked to Carl Zeiss, such as the Nokia 7, 7 Plus, and 8 Sirocco. The Nokia X7 is available in three variants: the 4 64GB crowd-sourced version costs 1699 yuan, and the 6 64GB standard version costs 1699 yuan. The Nokia X7 is available in three versions: a 4 64GB crowd-sourced version for 1,699 yuan, a 6 64GB standard version for 1,999 yuan, and a 6 128GB version for 2,499 yuan, all of which are in line with people’s expectations overall.
The launch theme also implies that this product will perform well at night. So, how does the Nokia X7 perform in practice? Let’s take a look.
The first thing to mention is that the Nokia X7 has the largest screen Nokia has ever produced: a 6.18-inch 18.7:9 full-screen display with a resolution of 2246×1080 pixels. The maximum brightness of 500nits, as well as parameters like the 1500:1 contrast ratio and DCI-P3 color gamut, are the best endorsements for this screen’s performance. A larger and clearer screen will undoubtedly improve the preview experience after taking photos; however, with a large screen, the size is unavoidably too large. The Nokia X7 is not as difficult to control as one might think.
The full screen is surrounded by a 154.8×75.7×7.97mm body, which is similar in terms of grip to previous 5.5-inch phones; the 178g weight is definitely a moderate level in side-by-side comparison.
In terms of body color, unlike the popular “aurora” and “gradient” colors, the Nokia X7 uses a more unique “dark” color scheme, and it’s difficult to tell what the colors are. The colors are difficult to define, and you and your friends may even disagree about what they are; however, the official name provides a reference – Dark Blue, Twilight Red, Phantom Silver, and Night Black are four distinct colors that result from the Finnish designer’s combination of “light” and “night.” The four distinct colors, Dark Night Blue, Twilight Red, Phantom Night Silver, and Night Black, are the result of the Finnish designer’s combination of “light” and “night,” as revealed by the glass material and complex technology. The Nokia X7’s full-screen may disappoint you a little – it’s that common bangs screen with the not-so-narrow bezels that make the front of the phone hard to distinguish from the crowd except for the logo at the bottom – but
The Nokia X7, like previous Nokia phones, retains its fully symmetrical design with a back fingerprint recognition button, while above the fingerprint recognition button is a vertically designed dual camera module, with the lens protruding from the back to ensure the effective flange distance of the camera, and the glass material on the back is also decorated with a bright metallic material. The lens surface is protected from scratches by a layer of highly transparent glass with an optical coating.
The Nokia X7’s hardware uses the current popular Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, which is the most popular choice at a price of 2000 yuan. The Snapdragon 710 processor has previously proven itself in a number of products, and when compared to last year’s god U Snapdragon 660, the Snapdragon 710 not only has better performance, but also has a significant improvement in power consumption and AI performance. The memory configuration of Nokia X7 gives users a richer choice – 4 64GB, 6 64GB, and 6 128GB, without overly exaggerated collocation, giving users the most practical options in several categories.
The Nokia X7’s 3500mAh battery capacity, combined with the power-saving capabilities of the Snapdragon 710, ensures a long battery life. Under normal circumstances, dealing with heavy usage throughout the day is not a problem. Even for large games like Chicken and King, the Nokia X7 can provide more than 5 hours of continuous gaming time. The Nokia X7 has a fast charging speed of 18W, allowing you to charge up to 50% in half an hour, allowing you to replenish enough power in the shortest possible time.
Photography: Carl Zeiss plus and large aperture As previously stated, the Nokia X7 is one of the few phones with Carl Zeiss certified lenses, so readers may be curious about the phone’s actual photographic capabilities. Let’s take a look at the camera on the phone.
The X7 features a dual camera design on the back, with a 12MP 1/2.55-inch Sony IMX363 sensor on the main camera, F1.8 aperture, 1.4m unit pixel area, Carl Zeiss optical certification, and O.I.S optical stabilization support. The Nokia X7’s large base and large aperture, combined with optical stabilization, ensure night photography performance. The Nokia X7’s secondary camera, on the other hand, is a 13-megapixel spatial detection camera.
According to Nokia staff, this is the same main camera used on the Nokia X5, and on the Nokia X7, it is primarily responsible for measuring the spatial distance of the shot, so that the background bokeh of the photo can be done well. Here are some pictures I took with my Nokia X7.
