This phone is awesome for its price point. The phone feels great in the hand and is very responsive. Plus it comes with Android 4.0.4 and should be getting a jellybean update soon.

Even with some lag problems and some issues while calling, the L7 is a great device that comes with an even better price. The screen, the design and the lightness of the device makes it a very attractive option and the fact that in Latin America, it comes with an 8.0 Mp camera (while it loses NFC connectivity that hasn't fully arrived in Latin countries) makes of the Optimus L7 one of the best entry level Android in market today.

the one core 1ghz cpu processor makes it seem very slow. clicking on app will take 3-4 seconds until it actually loads. whenever you install or uninstall there would be a 1-2 noticeable freeze and for unknown reasons the cpu would spike occassionally making it very had to use. Even though it's the latest model, the speed of the processor makes it hard to use. personally, i should have reconsidered or waited for detailed reviews, but nevertheless apart from the slowness most of the features were very good.
