LG Optimus L7 Review & Specs

LG Optimus L7 is a mid-end phone launched back in 2012, which counts with a fast 1000 megahertz processor, a 4.3 inches multi touch display, and 2 cameras, a 5 MP back-facing camera and a 0.3 MP front-facing camera.

LG decided to sell this phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 MSM7227A system chip, including a fast 1000 MHz CPU with 512 MB RAM. Graphic calculations usually consume a lot of CPU time, so the LG Optimus L7 also has an extra 200 megahertz Adreno 200 (enhanced) graphic processing unit to unload the processor. This phone comes with a 2,4 GB internal memory, a moderate quantity that should be enough considering the LG Optimus L7 also has an SD memory card expansion slot to store photos and videos.

This phone is just 0.34″ thick, making it one of the thinnest phones nowadays. LG has made a really good job making this phone weight just 4.3 ounces.

This cellphone features two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 0.3 mega-pixels front side camera. It also shoots videos in VGA 640×480 at 30 frames per second. This phone also counts with a few interesting features like auto-focus, flash, geo tagging and fast burst mode.

This cellphone has a nice 4.3″ display with a 800 x 480 resolution, providing this phone with a good level graphic quality. Its display uses TFT capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

The LG Optimus L7 uses a 1700 mAh medium capacity Li-Ion replaceable battery that can keep this device running for several hours. LG informs a 5.8 hours talk time and a 600 hs stand by time for this cellphone.

This cellphone features Wi-Fi connection (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a wireless router or modem) or 3G fast data connection, using HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a SIM card for GSM services.

This phone also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (enables communication with other bluetooth cellphones, computers and accessories), GPS Localization, Near Field Communication (NFC) and Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.
