So, a 4.3-inch TFT display presents the content. Display dissolves with surf-friendly 480 x 800 pixels and also provides a good brightness of 360 cd/m2. Also the sharp and color-neutral appearance impressed in the test.

Otherwise the Optimus L7 brings the standards like HSPA, n Wi-FI, A-GPS and Bluetooth. A 5-megapixel sensor captures photos, convinced the image quality but only in good lighting; that’s it for fun pictures. The FM radio and the music player provide entertainment where the supplied headset acoustically not necessarily pulls one off the stool.
