Taking into consideration everything we’ve checked out with the LG Optimus F7, we have to admit that it’s a very well rounded contender that’s above most other mid-rangers that are out on the market. And to an extent, it can very well hold its ground against some higher-end devices...

Offers some handy software features in a solid design

from Laptop Magazine

The LG Optimus F7 for Boost Mobile is a capable Android phone with robust onboard software and fast 4G LTE speeds. You also get a sharp 8-MP camera. We especially like the easy access to Settings and the QSlide multitasking feature, but QuickMemo isn't that useful without a pen. We also wish the design weren't so smudge-prone.

Large screen, speedy performance, and solid camera

from Phone Scoop

LG did a fine job with the Optimus F7 for U.S. Cellular. It covers all the bases in terms of features and managed to perform well across the board. The hardware may be a bit vanilla, but it is solid and well made. The screen is excellent, voice calls sounded great, and the battery life was commendable.

Taking into consideration everything we’ve checked out with the LG Optimus F7, we have to admit that it’s a very well rounded contender that’s above most other mid-rangers that are out on the market. And to an extent, it can very well hold its ground against some higher-end devices, especially when it’s priced to attract at $100 with a 2-year contract. It’s not the most cutting edge thing out of LG’s camp, but for US Cellular customers, it’s close as they can get to something grandiose like the Optimus G.
