  • Excerpt: We covered the introduction LG's L-series of phones in our review of their Optimus L5, so there's not much to add here. The Optimus L7 finds itself being the middle child of the L-series of smartphones, with the L9 being the bigger sibling in this series of phones.

LG Optimus L7 Review: In Depth

Recombu
9 September 2012
  • 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. Turning off all the animations LG make optional help, but it's hard to get past waiting a couple of seconds for a button to register and apps hanging after just a week of use.
  • Pros: Sharp, bright screen, Great camera, Latest version of Android, Well connected
  • Cons: Slow processor, Performance lags, Poor LED flash

LG's first attempt at an Android 4.0 smartphone

theverge.com
19 June 2012
  • Summary: LG has succeeded in creating a desirable, well-built device, but has burdened it with an underpowered processor — that’s really all that’s missing here. The L7’s IPS display is very good for a budget device, and Android 4.0 is a huge selling point.
  • 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

LG Optimus L7 Review

Phone Arena
24 May 2012
  • Conclusion: 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. The handset is indeed thin and light, but the chassis looks run-of-the-mill with its rectangular shape made of black plastic, despite the metal plate around the camera module.
  • Pros: Scrollable connectivity and profile toggles in the notification bar, Thin and light handset with a generous 4.3” display
  • Cons: Camera takes mediocre pictures and only records VGA video, Phone feels underpowered in the browser, No ambient light sensor

LG Optimus L7

  • Excerpt: Most would agree, the LG Optimus L7 is a thing of beauty. It belongs to LG’s line of highly stylish and slightly sophisticated handsets that have Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich pre-installed as the operating system. Based on looks alone, it’s bound to get high grades. However, once you pick it up and use it, you’re excitement is bound to fade.

LG L7 P700 review

Pocket Lint
7 June 2012
  • Conclusion: As far as style goes, the L7 can't be faulted. It's a nice-looking phone - we'd rather have it in black, but even so, it's well-designed and well-built. But when it comes to the stuff that matters, the L7 falls down because it has a slow processor running the latest version of Android. This is daft, and was never going to end well. And true to expectations, the day-to-day use of the L7 is hampered by lag and general slow performance. It's a real shame.
  • Pros: Stylish, runs Ice Cream Sandwich
  • Cons: Sluggish and laggy, camera is pretty dreadful, Ice Cream Sandwich is disguised by a theme that hides all the visual features, quite expensive really
