Nokia looks forward to wooing smartphone users with its recent releases of mid-range phones like the Nokia 2 and Nokia 6 at budget prices.
Nokia 7 slides in between the Nokia 6 and Nokia 8 both in price and features.
Summed up in a few words, the smartphone offers “a massive screen and premium design plus other midrange features”. It is an Android phone to consider if you want a premium device.

Design and Display
Nokia 7 takes the body, shape, and design of the Nokia Lumia series. It comes with glasses both at the front and rear held together by a 7000 series Aluminium frame.
You may find the rear glass cover beautiful — and it is — but quickly picks up fingerprints and as such will need constant wiping to keep clean.
The 16MP rear camera is located in the upper region, and below it, you’ll find a fast fingerprint sensor for maximum security of your device.
The display is rather impressive. It features a massive 5.2-inch screen with an impressive full HD 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution, all protected by a Corning Gorilla glass 3.

Processor and Performance
The superfast octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor, which clocks at 2.2GHz, offers an impressive performance.
Nokia 7 sports a 4GB RAM and a 64GB internal memory for maximum performance.
It has a 64GB internal memory, which is pretty much sufficient for almost any user. But if you want more, you can expand it to up to 256GB with a micro SD card. The device uses the hybrid SIM technology. This allows you to use two nano SIM cards and no SD card or a SIM and an SD card.
Nokia 7 comes with pure Android v7 Nougat. Expect the best of this software as it has not been tweaked by the manufacturer.
Another plus is the lack of bloatware. Since it runs on pure Nougat, it doesn’t come with apps that give annoying notifications.

Everything about the phone is commendable. It comes with a 16MP rear camera and a little 5MP selfie camera. The front and back cameras can be used for dual side technology. This means they can both be used for capturing images and videos at the same time.
One word: standard.
It comes with a 3000 mAh non-removable battery. This could give you about 12-14 hours of standby time with heavy usage — gaming, browsing, or streaming.
