Good hardware and exciting new OS
I really like the LG Optimus 7. I like the hardware design quite a bit, and think the 3.8-inch display is on the mark - I just wish that it was AMOLED based instead of TFT. The phone feels very solid, and I really like the hardware buttons on the device, except for the power button, that is.
Solid build quality
The LG Optimus 7 arrives at the market to be one of the more compact Windows Phone 7 handsets available initially. It's practicality doesn't come at the expense of usability though, as its screen measures the fantastic 3.8 inches. It has an overall good-looking and solid design, mainly thanks to the large metal back cover, and all the needed hardware to make it a worthy WP7 offering, such as the popular 1GHz Snapdragon chipset.
For all its limitations Windows Phone 7 is the fastest and most responsive mobile operating system on the market.
There is no denying the Optimus 7 is an extremely polished handset and its implementation of DLNA is far and away its killer feature. On the flip side the camera is a disappointment and you'll need to buy in the knowledge that however slick Windows Phone 7 is it remains painfully short of core functionality at present. Vodafone price plans do make this easier to swallow, so if you've decided Microsoft's new OS is for you check the DNLA status of your existing gadgets and dive in.
Good battery life.
The Optimus T for T-Mobile is incredibly affordable, but you get what you pay for-- the multimedia features are lackluster. The Optimus T for T-Mobile is incredibly affordable, but you get what you pay for-- the multimedia features are lackluster. This dual-core phone is fast and boasts solid data speeds, but the Atrix-powered laptop accessory is a good idea poorly executed.
snappy smartphone performance
We found that our review Optimus 7 ran Windows Phone 7 perfectly well; apps open in a flash and Windows Phone 7 is generally a great place to be. We prefer the experience on the slightly larger devices however, and we don't feel that the design is quite as sharp as that of the Samsung Omnia 7 or the HTC 7 Mozart.
We also don't feel that LG's added features really serve up that much of a benefit.
Good looking sturdy phone
The Nokia X2-01 is good looking sturdy phone that lacks several features that are found in most high-end phones including others from the same X series family. The Nokia X2-02 comes preinstalled with fun applications that appeal to young users who just want to remain in constant communication on social networking sites and want the ease of inputting text and exchanging of messages on the go.
