LG Optimus L7 review

 

Can LG's top L-style handset produce substance and style?

Good screen ; NFC tags ; decent battery life ; video player app

Slow and sluggish ; poor browsing ; angular shape not great ; VGA recording

LG wants to bring design to the masses with its L-style range and has launched three handsets aimed at the fashion conscious consumer, the Optimus L3, Optimus L5 and Optimus L7.

Does the LG Optimus L7 handset compromise substance for style?

Slick design ; Decent camera ; Latest Android version

Poor performance ; Terrible battery life ; Low storage

LG L7 P700 - Pocket-lint

 

We loved the phone when we first set eyes upon it. Sadly, as with so many things, our love evaporated when we used it. LG has not given this phone sufficient

Stylish, runs Ice Cream Sandwich

Sluggish and laggy, camera is pretty dreadful, Ice Cream Sandwich is disguised by a theme that hides all the visual features, quite expensive really

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.

LG Optimus L7

 

With ICS, a big screen and NFC, there's plenty packed into this budget Android phone.

Decent camera, Includes NFC support, Affordable price tag, Large screen

Stuttering performance, Unresponsive screen, Poor battery life

LG Optimus L7 review

 

The LG Optimus L7 is the premium option within the Korean firm's L-Style range of smartphones. The L7 is the largest and has the best listed specification of the three handsets.

The LG Optimus L7 is a good-looking design, with decent build quality and the latest Google software. However, it is severely let down by its poor performance – both in terms of subjective speed and in poor battery life. The price seems attractive when...

LG Optimus L7 Review

 

The LG Optimus L7 is a lithe white or black device that seems to pack in a fair few great features. Not only do you have a 4.3-inch WVGA display, there's also NFC and Ice Cream Sandwich under the hood.…

Sharp, bright screen ; Great camera ; Latest version of Android ; Well connected

Slow processor ; Performance lags ; Poor LED flash

LG Optimus L7

 

LG looks to stake a claim on the mid-range segment courtesy of its Optimus L7 which runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box.

Great 4.3 inch display for a mid-range offering. Android ICS out of the box. One of the better Android skins out there. Quick auto-focus feature on the snapper.

Single-core CPU. Only VGA video recording.

LG Optimus L7 Review

 

The LG L7 forms part of the “L Style” range. When we saw the L3, L5 and this at Mobile World Congress. This is at the very top of that range but it's still not one of the most powerful devices we've seen from LG.
