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.
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.
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
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
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.
The Optimus L7 is well designed, but the user experience is slow and sluggish

Summary: The competitively priced Optimus L7 is a well designed Android phone with a nice display and good battery life. However, it offer mediocre, sluggish performance that makes it too difficult to recommend.
Pros: Attractive looking design, Good screen, Reasonable battery life
Cons: Sluggish and slow performance, No ambient light sensor, Poor speaker placement
Excerpt: The LG Optimus L7 is the largest smartphone in LG’s Optimus range. It also has a 1GHz Cortex A5 CPU, 512MB of RAM, 2.7GB of storage and a screen resolution of 480x800. Most impressive is its operating system, which is Android 4 Ice Cream Sandwich.
