Review of Nokia 7 at a Glance:-

Nokia wants to expand its business by launching the smartphone for all the price range, currently, they launched an upper mid-range Smartphone Nokia 7. Initially, it is released in China, later they also distribute the phone in other countries. We have pointed the main advantages and disadvantages of this smartphone. The key features handset are 5.2 inches Full HD display, Android 7.1 (Nougat) OS, Snapdragon 630 CPU, 16MP primary | 5MP secondary camera, 64 GB Internal | 128 GB SD Card support | 6 GB RAM and 3000 mAh battery.

Compact and Premium
Design of the phone is quite similar to the Nokia 8 with narrow side bezels while the bezel area above and below the screen is pretty large that makes 74% screen-to-body ratio. The build looks premium as it is made up of 7000 series aluminum frame sandwiched between the front and rear panel of Corning Gorilla Glass. The gentle curves of corner & 2.5D curved glass offer a smoother finishing. It has IP54 certified dust and splash resistant body (Although it would be better if they offer waterproof body). As usual volume rockers and power button are fixed on the right edge while the left has card tray slot. Speaker grille and USB Type-C slot found on the bottom and 3.5mm audio jack moved to the top of the phone. 
Sharp & Vivid Display
As far as its 5.2 inches Full HD IPS LCD is concern; this sharp screen is not going to let you disappointed. It is vibrant and emits enough brightness to make it usable even in direct daylight conditions, even the viewing angles are also wide enough. Both the surfaces of phone are protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass. 

Performing well for Most of the Tasks
Performance of device is handled by the Snapdragon 630 clocked at 2.2 GHz with an octa-core processor. This CPU is designed by Qualcomm for the mid-range smartphones based on 14-bit technology and offers up to 30% higher graphics performance as compared to the prior generation. So this Qualcomm Snapdragon X12 LTE modem along with 6GB RAM is not going to disappoint you for most of the tasks even for multitasking. although it's not ideal for the heavy gaming because of less powerful Cortex-A53 and Adreno 508 GPU. However, the overall experience is smooth and trouble-free. 

Quality Camera
They have also added Carl Zeiss optics in 16MP rear camera with f/1.8 wide aperture, the quality of photos taken in daylight is brilliant with wide dynamic range and low light photography is satisfactory with minimal observable noise. Dual-LED (dual tone) flash also helps in night time photography. The device is also capable of recording 4K videos. Secondary camera having a 5MP sensor and 1.4 µm pixel size is also able to take decent enough selfies.
