LG Optimus L7 Android Smartphone Price in the Philippines, Features, and Other Info: The Optimus L7 is the latest and the best representative of LG’s new line of budget-friendly smartphones featuring the so-called L-Style design, a design that is supposed to be more appealing than those previous to it. The design also offers a bit of a paradigm between the L series aesthetic appeal and the phones’ rock bottom prices. However, being an affordable phone as it is, being top shelf doesn’t help so much in terms of the phone’s specs. Markedly, the Optimus L7 uses a single core processor, features WVGA screen resolution, and has a 5MP rear camera, but which in itself is not that remarkable compared to that of other higher end smartphones.
In terms of design, the LG Optimus L7 offers a seemingly regular rectangular slab consisting of cheap but decent black plastic despite the fact that the company has been ruminating on the L design to be a cut above the rest. However, the smartphone still has those five elements that LG envisioned the design to have The first of this is a “Modern Square Style for a comfortable grip” and is upheld by the phone’s rectangular shape with sharp edges. However, the grip is not that remarkable, bland even and not as comfortable as what might be desired.
The back plate plastic cover of the LG Optimus L7 has some pattern that adds slightly to the phone’s grip. Next are its supposed “Floating Mass Technology for a slimmer look”, and a “Sensuous Slim Shape” both proven by the slim 8.7 mm profile of the hone. But this thinness is not at all out of the ordinary nowadays. The key layout too can be debatable and at times prove not even ergonomic. However, on the “Harmonized Design Contrast” description of LG, some of the metallic elements in the design like that in the lock key and the camera module plate on the back are quite interesting, but nonetheless the rest of the phone are still made of plastic. Overall though, the phone feels solid, and is easy to operate with one hand.
The LG Optimus L7 also features its “Floating Mass” technology as a 4.3-inch IPS-LCD “NOVA” screen. This makes the screen closer to the protective glass, which in turn makes for a slimmer phone as well as brighter display. However, this is side swept by the fact that the display only has the bare minimum 480 x 800 pixels resolution and 217ppi density. Viewing angles are decent, and the screen gives vivid and bright colors, at an above average rate of 450 nits. This makes for a good visibility of the screen even if the phone is taken outside. It doesn’t however have a built-in ambient sensor so one has to constantly adjust the brightness when going indoor to outdoor or vice versa. To make this convenient though, there is a helpful toggle inside the notification bar.
As mentioned, the LG Optimus L7 use a single core CPU pegged at 1 GHz. It also uses the rather humble Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM7227A as its chipset along side the Adreno 200 graphics processor. At the same time, the phone only has a mere 512 MB worth of RAM and 2 GB worth of internal memory. In terms of processing power, one shouldn’t bank too high a hope on the handset. However, the specs are enough to give justice as well as handle the Android Ice Cream Sandwich that powers it.
On the other hand, call quality is about average with the earpiece doing its job of maintaining clarity between the users, but it nonetheless still needs more strength and voices could still come out cleaner than what it does. As for the built-in loudspeaker, it is also of average strength, and have to be maxed out if the phone is buried somewhere inside an enormous handbag. In terms of battery life, the LG Optimus L7 comes with a generous 1700 mAh battery that is capable of as much as 6 hours of talk time, something that is still below average compared to other smartphones.
