Another nice feature is the inclusion of NFC in the Optimus L7, and LG has also been kind enough to chuck in one of its Tag+ NFC tags into the box with the handset.

Reviews Word on the street for the LG Optimus L7

The display sports decent viewing angles and vivid colors, plus its brightness is above average at 450 nits, so outside visibility is decent.

It may have style, but the LG Optimus L7 doesn't quite hit the mark compared to the competition, with to much thought put into the design making the user experience feel forgotten and rushed.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


With its large, bright screen, slim 8.7mm waistline, and pleasantly-textured back panel, it is a very comfortable phone to hold in hand.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2012)
Display: The “Floating Mass” technology for the 4.3” IPS-LCD “NOVA” display that LG utilizes in the Optimus L7, means that the screen is closer to the protective glass, allowing for a slimmer device and a brighter display.
by PhoneArena (May, 2012)
The super-sharp and highly responsive screen is a joy to use for typing and sweeping through photos.
by TechRadar (Oct, 2010)


Email capability is excellent with support for Exchange available out of box, and social media buffs will be pleased with the level of SNS integration as well.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2012)
Still, the Zune software enables you to import music, video and podcasts, albeit the latter at a snail's pace, and the Music and video hub adds in access to an FM radio and to the Marketplace, where you can buy some tunes.
by TechRadar (Oct, 2010)
There isn't an abundance of new widgets that come up with the phone – you can count LG's additions, like SmartWorld for curated apps, on one hand.
by PhoneArena (May, 2012)


The pictures, however, are soft and sport bland colors, plus some spots easily get overexposed, and inside pics get very noisy, all resulting in below average image quality.
by PhoneArena (May, 2012)
In terms of image quality, the Optimus L7 isn't doing particularly well.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2012)
The panorama mode isn't great when it comes to stitching images.
by TechRadar (Jun, 2012)


The video player has a fairly simple interface, giving you just a list of all the videos on the device.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2012)
720p HD video recording is not an uncommon feature these days, but good quality video at those specs is.
by TechRadar (Oct, 2010)
1080p might be too much to ask, but all of the Optimus L7 competitors are easily doing 720p footage.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2012)


The angled, muscular body is a bit wider than usual but that's a key part of the L-Style design, which is heavily indebted to the latest Prada phone.
by GSM Arena (Jun, 2012)
Introduction: Coming with the latest Android Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box, the LG Optimus L7 is the top shelf representative of the company's new line of affordable handsets with supposedly more appealing L-Style design.
by PhoneArena (May, 2012)
If you value design and build quality, you should definitely consider it.
