LG Optimus L7 Review
The LG Optimus L7 should be adequate for those who crave for features and software of the more expensive Android smartphone, but only willing to spend less money. While other models in Optimus Lineup use dual- and quad-core chips, the Optimus L7 is only powered by a 1GH single-core processor and 512MB of RAM.
It also has one significant advantage compared to smartphones at similar price range, the 4.3” IPS WVGA display with NOVA technology, something we typically see on higher-end models. WVGA resolution over a 4.3” display could be a bit of a stretch, but it delivers accurate color reproduction and great viewing angles. Unfortunately, the 1GHz single-core processor seems to perform sluggishly and incapable of running ICS’ interface smoothly. Aside from undemanding apps, gaming is mostly a hit-and-miss experience and despite the slightly enhanced version of Adreno 200, playing 3D games is mostly not pleasurable. But still, the Optimus L7 shows that LG can effectively deliver a device with exceptional value.
