Great 4.3" display for a midrange offering, Android ICS out of the box, One of the better Android skins out there, Quick autofocus feature on the snapper.

Attractive design, 4.3inch display, Latest Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 OS onboard, Fine battery performance, NFC, MicroSD card support
The svelte LG Optimus L7 runs the latest version of the Android OS, Ice Cream Sandwich, and has NFC capabilities like Android Beam.

Runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, decent battery.
Scrollable connectivity and profile toggles in the notification bar, Thin and light handset with a generous 4.3” display
Screen isn't that great, Phone lags in terms of speed
Large size, Sometimes laggy processor performance
The L7's output speaker quality is poor and its 1GHz processor makes for slow and choppy performance.
Woefully underpowered, Disappointing camera, No ambient light sensor
Camera takes mediocre pictures and only records VGA video, Phone feels underpowered in the browser, No ambient light sensor
