LG Optimus 7 smartphone (preview)

The Optus-exclusive LG Optimus 7 has an impressive 16GB of storage and a 3.8in touchscreen display.

LG's Optimus 7 is one of two Windows Phone 7 smartphones that will launch as an Optus exclusive on 21 October. The Optimus 7 has an impressive 16GB of storage and a 3.8in touchscreen display.

The LG Optimus 7 is powered by a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, has 16GB of internal memory and 512MB RAM. Like all Windows Phone 7 devices, it lacks external storage, so there is no microSD card slot for extra memory.

The phone also records 720p HD video, and offers Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a proximity sensor, an ambient light sensor and built-in GPS. It will be available exclusively through Optus from 21 October for $0 upfront on Optus $79 cap plan over 24 months.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
