While the actual launch is on the 21st October, I was given the go ahead with my review. So, let’s welcome LG Optimus 7, their first Windows Phone 7 device.
The LG Optimus 7 has a 3.8-inch screen and 5 MegaPixel camera. Here is the specification.
Now, lets take a close look at the device.
The back cover is made of metal and quite heavy but sturdy.
Lets take a close look at the camera lens area. It has a reflective piece for you to see yourself. And a single flash below the lens (if you take the pic vertically).
Next, the sides.
Here is the volume rocker switch only.
Notice that it has a camera button. It is the standard feature of a Windows Phone 7 device. The top part is the Micro USB port for data transfer and charging.
Close up of the port.
You will need to remove the cover to access the port. Here is a look behind the cover.
You will need some getting used to, to remove the charging port cover.
Top and Bottom
On the top, you can see the 3.5mm earphone jack and the power on button.
And on the bottom, there is only a microphone (the small little hole).
The speaker is at the top.
I think one of the most common key that will be used on the Optimus 7 is the center (Windows Logo) button and the back button.
To open the cover, you only need to depress a button at the back of the back cover and the cover will “pop” out. Below, you can see the back (with battery installed) and the back cover.
It is very clean inside. Here is a pic when I take out the battery.
As you may already know, LG Optimus 7 has an internal 16GB of memory. Therefore, it does not come with any card slot.
I did a video on the unboxing and first look. For the record, the box might not be exactly the same as the one sold in Singapore. It has a Vodafone logo. From my understanding, it was locally configured to the Telcos (Starhub for my case) as different Telcos might have different unique services.
I will be doing more video on this Optimus 7. So stay tuned.
