Conclusion: The LG Optimus L7 II is a dual-SIM handset at heart, meant for developing markets where the feature is hugely appreciated. It arrives for a relatively affordable price of $280 off contract (280 euro in Europe), right at the start of the mid-range segment.
Pros: Awesome interface, Great dual-SIM implementation, Vivid display, Convenient for single handed use, Enormous battery, Great longevity
Summary: I find the Final Thoughts on lower-end devices much harder to write, as you have to be so critical on the device. The Optimus L7 can be found for under $200, and for that price it's a great phone - if you're not looking at any others.
Conclusion: We want to like the LG Optimus L7 and much of the time we do. It has some really charming quirks, a great screen, Ice Cream Sandwich and a good keyboard. The unlock animation is genius, the phone is thin and extremely well connected. Unfortunately, it's underpowered.
Pros: Sharp, bright screen, Great camera, Latest version of Android, Well connected
Cons: Slow processor, Performance lags, Poor LED flash
Excerpt: 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.
Pros: Solid, attractive design, Superb call quality, Android 4.0 is largely untouched, NFC and LG Tag+
Cons: Woefully underpowered, Disappointing camera, No ambient light sensor
Excerpt: If you can remember our first impression of the 4-incher LG L7, we mentioned that this is a very promising device if our price prediction is correct. Find out the verdict in our full review for the LG Optimus L7 after the break.
Summary: The LG Optimus L7 has the latest Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and a big, shiny 4.3-inch face, but the single-core engine is sluggish. At this price, there are faster mid-range Androids to choose from.
Pros: Latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS; Decent mid-range camera plus front-facing camera.
Cons: Under-powered processor means it's laggy; Screen feels unresponsive; Software is buggy.
