A good product that falls short of greatness.

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

While the Optimus F7 may not offer cutting-edge specs, it's still a pretty serviceable phone for Boost or US Cellular customers. The 4.7-inch display may be only 1280 x 720 pixels, but Phone Scoop says it looks "great" and the viewing angles are "excellent." Unfortunately, the 8-megapixel sensor only produces "mediocre photos," according to phoneArena, though CNET feels that at least the "colors were accurate and true to life." If you're worried about battery life (as you should be), you're be pleased to know that Laptop Magazine found it on "par" for the mid-range category. While it's far from the best phone you can buy right now, mid-range phones have still come a long way and the Optimus F7 is a solid choice for those on Boost or US Cellular who don't have a lot of options.
