LG Optimus L7 P700 houses serious specs and hardware compared to the rest of L-series siblings such as Optimus L3 and Optimus L5; besides its decent screen, it comes loaded with the latest Android OS right from the box. The phone is likeable considering everything and its sleek design is forth-coming. For a device in its category, a 4.3inch screen is more than enough; most phones have less than 3.5inch screens with close to bad pixel resolutions. LG Optimus L7 P700 is undoubtedly made for Android lovers unable to afford a high-end device with enough horse-power to plough just any application from the Android galore; however, a 1.0 GHz processor housed underneath can handle most essential apps without compromising performance. Swiping through operations should be seamless for a 1.0GHz processor, though handling 3D games may not be as smooth.
There’s not much to talk about LG Optimus L7 P700 if you’ve had a mid-range handset before, and we expect this to be reflected on pricing. At this point-in-time, we can only give an estimate of the price tag, however, LG promises an affordable pricing, whichever that means. Optimus L7 P700 may not be the prettiest device we’ve seen, but by all means it’s not close to ugly either. The front panel is largely occupied by a 4.3inch display screen except for a physical home button sitting at its bottom while edges are covered in a decent amount of chrome. The phone in itself is rather too thin not to fit in the smallest pockets we’ve had, at 8.7mm thick, LG Optimus L7 P700 is by far well placed to get more awards than any other device in the same category for a slim stylish body. Around the back panel is a white sheet of plastic featuring a lined texture that looks and feels nice, you’ll also find a 5.0Megapixel camera resting around the same area including a LED flash, so you can shoot those photos even in darker conditions.
LG Optimus L7 P700 comes with 1GB internal storage though you’re at liberty to expand using a MicroSD card of up to 32GB. It packs Android Ice Cream Sandwich right from the box; therefore, no update is currently needed as is the case with the rest of L siblings. Underneath the hood is a 1.0GHz processor which is snappier as expected on normal operations such as swiping through home screens except for rendering more demanding 3D games. For a chipset of this caliber, Adobe flash support isn’t an issue, but still, you are free to use the Youtube app to play video files rather than directly via the browser. A 5.0Megapixel camera sitting around the phone’s back-side won’t disappoint and additional functionality such as auto-focus and LED flash makes it even better.
