The high-end smartphones from the big manufacturers are of course the most ground-breaking and exciting products. However, not everyone has the budget for buying them separately, and getting tied to a two or three-year subscription isn't always the...

The LG Optimus L7 2 smartphone, launched at MWC , is a device that seems to be aimed at the top end of the mid-range smartphone market (if such a place even exists). Here's our LG Optimus L7 2 hands-on review. See Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 hands-on review...

on lower-end devices much harder to write, as you have to be so critical on the device. The Optimus L7 can be found for under $200, and for that price it's a great phone - if you're not looking at any others. Right now, the Nexus 4 is $349 in...

LG and Samsung regularly release new high-end smartphones, but both brands are active in the mid-range segment as well. We tested the LG Optimus L7 (LG-P700) and the Samsung Galaxy Ace Plus (GT-S7500). They may look completely different, but they have...

The Optimus L7 has a nice screen, Ice Cream Sandwich and a fairly practical LG overlay, but all these strengths are hindered by a lack of speed and fluidity that quickly gets on your nerves. The HTC One V, which is similar to the L7 but with a smaller...

Priced at just AED 1299 with which you also get a carrying case, a screen protector and a 32GB Micro SD card, LG puts the Optimus L7 on the lower-end of pricing for medium-end handsets. At that pricing, the Optimus P705 makes good sense. It may not be...

We wanted to like the LG Optimus L7 P700, we really did. For just £215 SIM free it comes running the latest version of Android, has a big, bold 4.3inch colour screen and NFC support. On paper it sounds like a fab mid-range blower. However, it turns out...

The LG Optimus L7 is a lithe white or black device that seems to pack in a fair few great features. Not only do you have a 4.3-inch WVGA display, there's also NFC and Ice Cream Sandwich under the hood. It isn't meant to be an explicitly premium handset...

The LG L7 forms part of the “L Style” range. When we saw the L3, L5 and this at Mobile World Congress. This is at the very top of that range but it’s still not one of the most powerful devices we’ve seen from LG. First impressions are good. It’s...

The LG Optimus L7 is a good-looking design, with decent build quality and the latest Google software. However, it is severely let down by its poor performance – both in terms of subjective speed and in poor battery life. The price seems attractive...

Aiming at the mid-tier of the smartphone market, the Optimus L7 comes packing a sizeable 4.3-inch display, is shipped with the latest Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) smartphone operating system running the show, and has a 1GHz Cortex A5 processor under...

As much as we wanted to like the Optimus L7, we must strongly urge those who want an entry-level smartphone to look elsewhere. It's quite a shame, really, because LG's design efforts hinted at something so much greater. We genuinely appreciate the...

LG's Optimus L7 phone is a confusing affair as it looks like a premium phone and has elements of a high quality handset, but it's ultimately let down by the slow processor and lack of high performance hardware. As a result, the operating system is slow...

The LG Optimus L7 had the potential to be a decent phone, its big screen, Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and NFC technology are sadly put on the back burner thanks to the incredibly slow processor and user experience. If you want a decent, single...

LG has a bad history with skins and bloatware on its devices, and it's not shipping a stock Android 4.0 experience with the L7. So has LG learned from its mistakes? And how does LG's interpretation of Android 4.0 stack up when compared with HTC's Sense...
