LG Optimus 7 review

 

Following from the launch of Microsoft's Window 7 operating system last week, we've been playing with LG's effort, the LG-E900 or LG Optimus 7. Results are very impressive the LG Optimus 7 is a serious IOS and Android rival

Intuitive interface ; Xbox Live Integration ; 720p movie mode

No multitasking ; Current lack of Mac support ; Build quality isn't amazing

Running a 1Ghz processor, the LG Optimus 7 feels fairly quick, helped in part by a simple interface which means you never have to delve too deeply to find anything. Occasionally as we swapped quickly between hubs we were confronted by the odd progess...

LG Optimus 7 review

 

Is LG's Optimus 7 the prime Windows Phone 7 handset?

Slick and responsive interface

Slow internet browser

Windows Phone 7 has arrived an array of different handsets, so here we're looking at LG's entry: the Optimus 7.

LG Optimus 7 - Pocket-lint

 

Headline software additions are probably of little significance, but the generous 16GB of storage might appeal to some

Panorama photo is fun, comfortable for making calls, Windows Phone 7 is generally a great refreshing operating system, compact, Zune, 16GB of memory

DLNA is send only, camera tinkering adds little over the default performance, design not as striking as some rivals, WP7 app support still a little unknown

We found that our review Optimus 7 ran Windows Phone 7 perfectly well; apps open in a flash and Windows Phone 7 is generally a great place to be. We prefer the experience on the slightly larger devices however, and we don’t feel that the design is...

LG Optimus 7 - Windows Phone 7 Smartphone

 

Windows Phone 7 may be missing a few core features, but can LG's handset make up for them with a few tricks of its own?

LG Optimus 7 E900 review

 

LG is perhaps better known for its feature phones and its budget Android devices, but it's done a great job here. Surprisingly, LG has stuck with the Optimus tag we've come to associate with its Android phones, but perhaps that's to show the hardware...

LG has done a great job with the LG Optimus 7 E900. It’s an attractive smartphone that’s a pleasure to use, isn’t so large as to be unwieldy, and is powerful enough to last a day or two between charges.

LG Optimus 7 E900 review

 

Great hardware, with a smart design and all the usual smartphone features, can't make up for Windows Phone 7's immaturity, but the added competition can only be good for consumers.

LG Optimus 7 E900

 

Under Microsoft's strict handset protocol, the Optimus 7 follows the same basic design as its fellow WP7 devices but compared to HTC's duo, the HD7 and Mozart, it lacks its rivals consistent build quality and subtle alluring curves.

The rest of the Windows Phone 7 OS plays out very much like the HTC handsets we’ve already reviewed. There's no multi-tasking, so switching between apps is off the menu and although it was simple to set-up via the Zune desktop software, we had no joy...

LG Optimus 7 E900 review

 

The Optimus 7 is LG's most powerful smartphone. But can it usurp the HTC HD7 as the Windows Phone 7 handset of choice?

A very capable WP7 smartphone that sadly lacks the design and build quality of the HTC handsets

LG Optimus 7 review

 

The LG Optimus 7 is one of several smartphones soon to launch using Microsoft Windows Phone 7.

If this is the only differentiator among the many Windows Phone 7 devices we'll be seeing in the coming months, the LG Optimus 7 may get lost in the shuffle.
