LG Optimus L7II, in-depth analysis

LG Optimus L7II 02

It is called LG Optimus L7II and it is one of the members of the new LG Optimus LII collection that the Korean firm LG has just presented . They are, as you can imagine, the successors of the legendary Optimus L Series family , made up of a series of touchscreen smartphones with an elegant and contemporary design, specially designed for an increasingly demanding and distinguished audience. The company, which managed to market a whopping 10 million LG Optimus L Series in just 10 months , presents its most loyal audience with a new line of sophisticated design and brilliant features. Although it does not reach the lofty level ofSamsung or the advantageous technologies of Nokia , the new LG have all those characteristics or benefits that we would ask of a smartphone of today: a touch screen of considerable dimensions, a quality camera and an internal heart that can work at full speed when the user is more I needed it.

The new LG Optimus L7II is equipped with a correct 4.3-inch screen . It is clear that for the moment, the Korean has no intention of jumping the 5-inch barrier as other firms have done. But everything will be seen. It incorporates a good camera with an eight megapixel sensor and few additions, but it is perfectly capable of giving the callus in the multimedia reproduction of the main compatible files. It has a fair internal memory , but enough for normal use ( 4 GB ), and it works through a dual-core processor . The operating system chosen for the occasion is Androidin its 4.1 edition (Jelly Bean) . But, what other details is this smartphone adorned with ? Next, we analyze its technical data sheet in depth and in great detail.

Design and display

The LG Optimus L7II (you will see it in the central part of the lower photograph) is a phone that above all respects the design storyline that has been lavished on LG so far . It has definitely squared shapes , moving away from what we currently identify as a compact mobile phone, with rounded shapes and matte materials. The LG Optimus L7II boasts a bright and distinguished appearance, with plastic finishes but in very colorful hues. Responds to measures 121.5 x 66.6 x 9.7 mm , although the version that LG will also launch equipped with dual SIM measures 122.2 x 66.6 x 9.7 mm. The screen occupies a large part of the extension of the phone, reserving (yes) a small space for the central button that allows us to access the menu. At the top we have the sensors and the secondary camera , useful for video calls.

And what about the screen? You well know that this is one of its fundamental elements. The LG Optimus L7II screen is the largest of this trio of smartphones . It is a capacitive multitouch IPS panel of 4.3 inches , with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels . It has a density of 217 pixels per inch and a depth of 16 million colors , the most common in phones like the one at hand.

Photographic camera

The LG Optimus L7II has a camera of eight megapixels . It is, as you will see, a sensor suitable for capturing high-quality images that will allow you to leave the compact pocket camera at home . It is, it must be said, a camera without too many frills or accessories that can offer the user a markedly superior experience. The camera will help us to obtain images at a maximum resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels . As complements we have to mark the LED flash , geotagging or autofocus. Thanks to the first we will have the opportunity to capture good quality images in situations with very little light or even, if it is necessary, at night. You can record videos and do it in high definition, even at 720p @ 30fps , which is the quality that precedes FullHD 1080p . The secondary camera, located on the front of the phone (just above the screen) will help us make videoconferences or take self-portraits, even in VGA quality .

Memory and power

The new LG Optimus L7II respects the technical characteristics of one of the latest terminals presented by LG , the LG Optimus L9 . At least in the memory section. The new Korean smartphone is presented with 4 GB of internal memory that we can expand with cards of up to 32 GB (at least). This means that we will have the opportunity to store content of different kinds (images, videos, music, applications), although if we use the phone intensively it is possible that the 4 GB will be somewhat short. We also find your RAM memory too small, that capacity that allows phones to run with more or less ease their applications and basic functions. In any case, we have to talk about a memory of 768 MB of RAM . It would have been interesting for LG to bet on 1 GB . Another time it will be.

For now, users who choose this smartphone will have to make this capacity compatible with a Qualcomm MSM8225 processor with dual-core architecture , which is not bad either. It runs at a 1 GHz clock frequency and is valid enough to support high-normal activity.

Operating system

Like practically all LG mobiles , the LG Optimus L7II works through the Google icons operating system . Android version 4.1 (Jelly Bean) is the chosen edition, one of the latest that the Mountain View company has presented . It brings with it very important improvements, especially in the design of the interface and in performance. We will notice it when running applications and the main menu functions. As a good Google device , the LG Optimus L7II offers direct access to the main free services of the company. We refer, of course, toGoogle Search, Maps, Gmail, YouTube or Google Talk , among many others. As soon as we open the phone, we will find these applications installed as standard in the terminal. If you miss any, you can always access Google Play to download more applications, games and utilities . There you have more than 600,000 proposals , both free and paid, ready to download.


The new LG Optimus L7II operates on GSM 850/900/1800/1900 and HSDPA 900/1900/2100 networks . In principle, it fulfills everything that we would ask of a phone in the field of connectivity. It is perfectly capable of connecting to 3G networks (HSDPA 21 Mbps / HSUPA 5.76 Mbps) , which guarantees total autonomy thanks to the contract with our distributor. It is compatible with Wifi 802 b / g / n networks so that we can take advantage of any wireless network available at home, at work or at any other point with a Wifi network enabled. It incorporates, as additional features, Wifi Direct (a system that allows transferring information from one device to another more quickly) andWifi Hotspot (tool that will help us anchor several devices on our 3G connection ). It is compatible with Bluetooth 3.0 technology with A2DP and has DLNA , which will facilitate the transfer of multimedia content between the devices in our home.

It has GPS technology (with aGPS support ) that will be very useful when using applications that require it, but also to make use of our smartphone as if it were a dedicated GPS navigator for the car . The system logically connect for free to Google Maps , the mapping service Google , though you can always access other services more complete and sophisticated payment.

In the section of physical connections, the LG Optimus L7II meets the basics. It incorporates a microUSB 2.0 input so we can connect your phone to your computer and synchronize data or receive updates, plus an output of 3.5 mm headphones or small speakers connected. Finally, we must mention its microSD card slot . It will be very useful when it comes to expanding the memory of the device.

Music, FM Radio and Podcast, Video

Like any smartphone today, the LG Optimus L7II is a device prepared for the reproduction of multimedia content. In this case, we can confirm that the device is capable of reproducing images, audio and video in all major formats supported, which according to its data sheet are as follows: DivX, Xvid, MP4, H.264, H.263, WMV, MP3 , WAV, WMA and eAAC + . The phone also has a simple document editor, voice commands, and predictive text. Other applications are added, part of the universe proposed by the LG firm , which are QMemo, QTranslator and My Style Keyboardto facilitate the user experience on board when using the main tools or writing messages.

Includes FM Radio and the ability to download Podcasts and enjoy your favorite shows anywhere and anytime you want.


The new LG Optimus L7II incorporates a powerful lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 2,460 milliamps . It is a solvent capacity that should offer users adequate autonomy, at least one day working more or less intensively.

LG Optimus L7II 03


The LG Optimus L7II is a powerful and equipped phone, although its technical characteristics mean that we must frame it in a mid-range. Its screen is small if we compare it with the most cutting- edge terminals of the moment , whose limit is already at five inches , but the truth is that it is a large enough surface to offer the user a remarkable experience. It complies with a note in the section on connectivity, camera and multimedia playback , but we would have liked LG to have given a significant push to the section on memory and power. We would recommend it to those users who settle for agood specs - without being excellent - and they are especially interested in the design side . LG continues to stand out for the elegance and distinction of its terminals . It will especially appeal to the firm's unconditional followers.
