LG's Optimus 7 & Samsung's Focus Reviewed: A Tale of Two Windows Phones


The only aspect of purchasing a Windows Phone that's more difficult than jumping on the iPhone bandwagon is choosing hardware. While the OS may be polished, nearly all Windows Phone manufacturers took the safe route and launched relatively uninspired...

From what I’ve heard the Focus is doing very well on AT&T (for a Windows Phone), and it’s unsurprising. You get a beautiful screen, a very thin form factor and a phone that's generally pleasant to use.

LG E900 Optimus 7 review: Lucky seven


Windows Phone 7 is new territory for LG to conquer and the LG E900 Optimus 7 is their first pawn in the game. However “pawn” hardly describes the rich feature set of this player. LG has done its best to set the Optimus 7 apart with great build quality...

3.8" 16M-color capacitive TFT touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels) ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; 3G with HSDPA (7.2 Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76Mbps) ; Windows Phone 7 operating system ; 1GHz Snapdragon CPU, 512MB RAM ; 5 megapixel...

Memory not expandable ; Average quality display ; No stereo speakers ; No lens protection ; Audio output quality is a mixed-bag

LG Optimus 7 review


If last night's cameo showing off the official Twitter client for Windows Phone 7 wasn't enough of a hint, yes, we've gotten our hands on LG's Optimus

Outstanding fit and finish ; Generously sized battery ; Play To media streaming legitimately useful

Generic LCD is a step behind Super screens ; Awkward microUSB port cover ; Smallish power button

LG Optimus 7 Review


Obviously, the LG Optimus 7 is yet another strict WP7 Chassis 1 offering, so hardware alone would not be enough to distinguish this device, having in mind the already strong competition from Samsung and HTC. So, what can possibly make the Optimus 7...

LG Optimus 7 Review


One of the very few existing Windows Phone 7 in the country (actually, the 3rd as of this month), the LG Optimus 7 brings with it more than just the staple WP7 features. Check out our full review of the Optimus 7 after the jump.

I didn?t particularly liked the design of the Optimus 7. LG Philippines might find it a little hard to sell this handset at that price point even if the selection of WP7 handsets in the country are sparse.

LG Optimus 7 video review – my first encounter with Windows Phone 7

That’s about it for now. I'll keep an eye on this OS and in the meantime, you can find some pics with the Windows Phone 7 phone, as the LG Optimus 7 is advertised in my country, below. #gallery-1 {margin: auto;}#gallery-1 .gallery-item {float:...

Review: LG Optimus 7 and Windows Phone 7


LG kicks off Windows Phone 7 with a strong design.

Fresh, fun Windows Phone 7 UI ; Good build quality ; High quality LCD ; Better than usual voice quality ; Play To app works in surprising ways ; Capable camera ; Reasonable battery life ; 16GB of storage built-in ; Mac syncing

Windows Phone 7 still rough ; Gamble on whether Microsoft will catch up ; Camera settings won't save ; Camera has room to improve ; Most bundled apps not really added value

Design and the displayWhat's most surprising about the Optimus 7 is its build quality. Like other Optimus phones, such as the Optimus S and Optimus One, LG has made a concerted effort to give its smartphones a level of polish no matter how much

LG Optimus 7 -


The LG Optimus 7 arms itself with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1GHz processor, bringing a naturally smooth user experience with Microsoft's new Windows Phone 7 platform.

Simple and well designed with good weight; Panorama Shot, SearchScan and Play To apps enhance user experience; Fast autofocus and image processing speeds

Flat volume and power buttons; Low battery mileage

Review: LG Optimus 7 Windows Phone 7 smartphone review


After years of delays, Microsoft has finally stepped up to the plate and put forth a completely new smartphone operating system: Windows Phone 7. The LG Optimus 7, which will be offered by Telus in Canada and by multiple carriers in Europe, is one of...

Slick and simple UI, good camera, Wi-Fi music sync, solid build and reception, accurate text input

Abysmal speakerphone, no 3rd party app multi-tasking or copy/paste, few applications available, no task switcher

The LG Optimus 7 allows users the freedom to stay connected by enriching their social playground without missing a moment in HD quality.

Elegant and sleek, LG Optimus 7 comes with an expansive 3.8 inch WVGA LCD display that can capture every detail in a photo with its 800x480 pixels.
