LG Optimus L7 II Dual
LG Optimus L7 II Dual is powered by 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8225 processor with 768MB RAM, 4GB of internal storage and microSD card support. The handset measures 121.5 x 66.6 x 9.7 mm, and comes with a 2,460 mAh battery. This device has been listed for Rs. 18,650 on the LG India website, while Flipkart.com has listed it for Rs. 14, 990.
As the names suggest, both LG Optimus L3 II Dual and Optimus L7 II Dual are dual-SIM smartphones.
So far there is no word whether LG will also be launching LG Optimus L5 II in India. However, given that all these smartphones were unveiled together, we hope that this smartphone will pop up in India sometime soon.
The LG Optimus L7 2 is a surprisingly capable budget smartphone which offers up plenty of features for not a lot of cash – although the naming of it will confuse potential buyers aplenty.
We were impressed with its 8MP camera, stylish design and smooth operation, although web surfing could do with a bit of a boost.
Out of the three new L-Series 2 handsets the LG Optimus L7 2 is our favorite and we reckon it will offer consumers pretty decent value for money when it lands later this year.
LG is refreshing its bottom end offering at MWC 2013 with a trio of new devices taking over from their namesakes (minus the number 2) which launched at the same show last year.
All three are expected to launch during the second quarter of this year in markets across the world, and the Optimus L7 2 has been confirmed as coming to the UK, but it will arrive a bit later than the Optimus L5 2 and Optimus L3 2.
LG reckons the Optimus L7 II will retail for around £150-£160 (around $225-$240/AU$220-AU$235) SIM free, with contract prices likely to be around the £15-£20 per month mark.
At first look the LG Optimus L7 2 could be mistaken for a premium handset thanks to its smart design and metallic border.
There’s a 1GHz dual-core processor and 768MB of RAM to run the action on screen, which consists of the Android Jelly Bean operating system.
Everything runs without a hitch and while it may not be as slick and speedy as the top-of-the-range handsets, the LG Optimus L7 2 has a pleasing user experience.
