LG K7 review


Also known as LG Tribute 5, it pays homage to LG's signature design

Inexpensive price expected ; Large 5-inch display ; Smooth arc glass design

Low resolution 480p display ; Very basic phone design ; Stuck with Android 5.1

LG K7 or LG Tribute 5 is an affordable Android phone meant for prepaid carriers, like Boost Mobile in the US. Its 5-inch display and plastic design look and feel okay if you can handle the lower resolution 480p display.

LG K7 Smartphone Review


Social media with hurdles. With the K7, LG promises outstanding selfie-capability at an affordable price point. The 5-inch Android smartphone does many things right, but unfortunately doesn't quite deliver on LG's main promise.

inexpensive ; swappable battery ; sturdy case design ; display with lots of contrast ; quite fast ; doesn't get very hot ; no throttling

only 3.3 GB of available storage ; no LTE ; Android 5.1 ; mono speaker ; low resolution ; selfie camera isn't that great ; viewing angle stability is lacking ; display not adjusted right

The LG K7 is a good entry-level smartphone which impresses with decent build quality, a fast quad-core SoC, responsive operation and a decent communication feature set. Users looking for an inexpensive smartphone can't really go wrong with the 5-inch...

The LG K7 is one of the most affordable phones you can get on T-Mobile, but many more powerful options are available unlocked for similar or less money.

Sturdy feel. Strong network performance and call quality. Expandable storage and removable battery.

Low-res display. Dated hardware and software. Limited internal storage.

Conclusions The LG K7 feels solid, offers good network connectivity, and can run most basic apps for $140. That might have been good enough a couple of years ago, but it's lacking in many departments compared with a lot of the affordable unlocked...

LG K10 and LG K7 hands-on: LG at CES 2016


This year the CES expo in Las Vegas is mostly about HDR TVs and smart appliances (fridges, washing machines) rather than smartphones and slates. LG is among the few manufacturers to bring new mobile gadgets - the LG K10 and LG K7.

LG K7 LTE Express Review: Nothing impressive for its price


LG K7 LTE is a new budget 4G LTE smartphone priced at Rs 9,500. But does this budget 4G device live up to expectations? Here's our review

At this price, the LG K7 LTE is hard to recommend. We know that the Redmi Note 3, Le 1s, etc offer much better performance and cost around Rs 9,999 (2GB+16GB version) and Rs 10,999 (3GB RAM+ 32GB storage).

The phone is 8.9-mm thin , and tips the scale at 141 grams. The phone is powered by a 1.1 GHz Quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor and it comes with 1.5 GB of RAM. What this means is the processor has Quad cores in the CPU . The LG K7 LTE also...

LG K7 LTE Review


Striking design and good build quality ; Good battery life ; Dedicated microSD card slot ; 4G with VoLTE support

Low-resolution screen ; Sub-par performance ; No ambient light sensor ; Overpriced

The LG K7 LTE feels out of place in today's cut-throat budget smartphone segment. The good battery life and design aside, it falls short on pretty much every count. Then there's the price - at Rs. 9,500, it's simply too expensive to even consider when...

Good Design and Build ; Good performance

Average Display ; Average Camera ; Priced on the higher side

but the general feel of the phone is good.


Phone is a decently priced and I have been using it for the past month. The battery lasts nearly 2 full days, if one keeps the data connection off as I do (switching on only when I need to access WhatsApp or emails). The keypad is slightly cramped and...
