LG Optimus L7 review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: 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 4.0 out of the box, and arrives before the company’s flagship Optimus 4X HD next month. While it may not compromise on software, hardware is a different matter altogether.
  • 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: 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

  • 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. If you want a large display, then you're better off saving up for a more powerful phone that can handle all those pixels.
  • Cons: Under-powered processor means it's laggy; Screen feels unresponsive; Software is buggy.

LG Optimus L7 Review: In Depth

Recombu

  • 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

  • Conclusion: 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 the fastest phone or have the best screen but LG is not charging you an arm and a leg for it along with providing you with a device that has Android 4.0 and an extremely impressive battery life.

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

  • 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.
