LG Optimus L7


Consider your last trip to the car dealership. Let's say you saved up and hit up BMW. While you might've looked at -- or even test driven -- the M3, there's a good chance that your better judgment (and your budget) led you to drive off of the lot with...

Excellent display ; Elegant design

Sluggish performance ; Lackluster camera ; Unresponsive touchscreen ; No ambient light sensor

The LG Optimus L7 is a beautiful, entry-level smartphone, but its numerous shortcomings amount to a regrettable purchase.

LG Optimus L7 (unlocked)


Most of the devices that LG introduced this year at Mobile World Congress have a standout feature. The LG Optimus 3D Max has, you guessed it, 3D imaging. The flagship Optimus 4X HD has its quad-core processor going for it. And the Vu can flaunt its...

The svelte LG Optimus L7 runs the latest version of the Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwich, and has NFC capabilities like Android Beam.

The L7's output speaker quality is poor and its 1GHz processor makes for slow and choppy performance.

The Optimus L7 is a good midlevel Android device that features some of the latest technology in the market, but only if you're patient enough to live with its pokey processor.

LG Optimus L7 review


The Optimus L7 headlines LG's new L-Style line of Android phones, designed for users that want the latest software and features but don't have the budget for the more expensive Optimus smartphones. The L-Style range is LG's first to come with Android...

Solid, attractive design ; Superb call quality ; Android 4.0 is largely untouched ; NFC and LG Tag

Woefully underpowered ; Disappointing camera ; No ambient light sensor

LG's first attempt at an Android 4.0 smartphone

LG Optimus L7 review: L-egant droid


A fashion phone for the designer-challenged. Last season's Prada at knockdown prices. The LG Optimus L7 will have to face comparisons with the latest Prada phone by LG and we cannot think of many that will swing in its favor. But there's no...

Quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G support ; 21 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; 4.3" 16M-color capacitive IPS LCD touchscreen of WVGA resolution (480 x 800 pixels) ; Android OS v4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich ; Single-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A5 processor, Adreno...

Outdated hardware with a single-core processor ; Occasional performance hiccup and laggy browser ; Less than impressive camera performance ; VGA video recording only ; Poor sunlight legibility

The Optimus L7 really catches the eye. With its large, bright screen, slim 8.7mm waistline, and pleasantly-textured back panel, it is a very comfortable phone to hold in hand. The interface is littered with cool transitions and effects, and the...

LG Optimus L7 Review


Coming with the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, the LG Optimus L7 is the top shelf representative of the company's new line of affordable handsets with supposedly more appealing L-Style design. Top shelf in the L line doesn't mean...

Scrollable connectivity and profile toggles in the notification bar ; Thin and light handset with a generous 4.3” display

Camera takes mediocre pictures and only records VGA video ; Phone feels underpowered in the browser ; No ambient light sensor

Despite being the flagship of the new L series, the LG Optimus L7 main virtue is that it ships with the newest Android Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, rather than design and specs.

LG has tried hard to manufacture this smartphone to compete with HTC One X, Xperia U and Galaxy S3 but the result is not the expected. Overall, LG Optimus L7 fails to be a better android smartphone when compared to its rival smartphones.

The LG Optimus L7 is the Korean manufacturer's latest entry in their affordable range of L-Style devices, sitting behind the recently announced LG Optimus L9...

Affordable-ish ; Comes with ICS ; Okay Build quality ; MicroSD card slot ; Good battery life ; Thin, Slim and easy to hold

Dated hardware means it’s a bit laggy ; Dated design ; Subpar camera quality

If you need Android 4.0 ICS on a large screen and on a very tight budget, here ya go. Otherwise, there’s a couple alternate options you might want to check out.

LG Optimus L7 P705 Phone Review


Your average middle of the road phone.

Excellent battery life, Great value

Screen isn't that great, Phone lags in terms of speed

Priced at just AED 1299 with which you also get a carrying case, a screen protector and a 32GB Micro SD card, LG puts the Optimus L7 on the lower-end of pricing for medium-end handsets. At that pricing, the Optimus P705 makes good sense. It may not be...

LG Optimus L7 review


The LG Optimus L7 is the flagship smartphone from the Korean giant's L-Style range, offering Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich action for the mid-level masses

Slick design ; Decent camera ; Latest Android version

Poor performance ; Terrible battery life ; Low storage

The LG Optimus L7 may have style, but it doesn’t have a lot of substance. Call clarity is great and it’s fine for basic tasks. But, try to push it even a slightly bit further and you’ll come unstuck.
