LG optimus 7 phone
deal back on jump on for a good bargain enjoy
dont forget if you have ios device to use ILOVECATCH for 5% off
need an iOS device to get a WP7 bargain lol
might as well just say price is $164.95 cause shipping is a flat $5.95
received mine from the mail a few days ago and i have to say i'm quite impressed, for the price its one of the best. However i did find the battery life to be disappointing.
Looks like Optus has too many stock to get rid of, so this deal keeps popping up.
Ordered it in last CoTD deal, took 9 days to arrive, not bad.
The phone works well, but after hunting hours on the internet I've come to realise there isn't a PC suite available for this phone, what a shame (Correct me if I'm wrong).
Do you mean zune?
Have you attached your phone to your pc yet. It automatically says download zune.
Very simple software to use and get the latest Mango update. (Took me about 45 mins for the Mango update)
Zune doesn't seem to support sms from PC. I like to do quick texting through the PC interface and USB connection. LG didn't release any such software for windows phones as far as I'm aware but it did release for android ones.
I am just gonna wait till it comes down to $130 bucks. haha
Heard lots of good feedback on this phone, so I am tempted, but can anyone who is usung it point out some of the negatives compared to Android or iOS ? I know apps will be limited, but is there any hardware or OS omissions that prospective buyers should be wary of?
I have an iphone 4 and this phone.
I prefer the LG more because of the tasks I do on a phone.
Pros of LG:
Slick, Slick,Slick ( I never see a lag)
Quick Browser ( Much faster than safari)
Amazing Interface ( Feels effortless to use and type)
Good Wifi Connection ( Much better than my iphone 4)
Awesome inbuilt message feature( Built in message feature first sends message to IM if on msn, then to facebook if on facebook and then to mobile phone if they are not online)
Great at multi tasking
Good sized screen. ( Fingers don't hurt when typing like the iphone 4)
Cons of LG:
More expensive apps
Doesn't look that good without a cover( I got a coloured cover that matches the screen colour and now it looks awesome)
Pros: you have heard a lot so no dup here
- Less configurable user interface and limited choice of themes.
- No folder support so icons spread around.
- No PC suite as mentioned above which is useful for super quick texting and managing contacts, calendar, etc.
- Average reception(at leaset on Vodafone compared to my nokia n95).
- No FM radio.
Overall I still think it's a good phone.
"-no FM radio"
You went and looked in the Music and videos app right? I'm not sure about the LG phone but i know my htc hd7 Windows Phone has radio.
Yes you're right, I found it.
Nowhere to spend your money to buy apps
The amount of apps is getting better by the day, currently at 70,000+. Is there any specific apps you need/want? Asking here or on whirlpool, some people may be able to give you an idea if there is an un/official app or not.
still waiting for mine ordered on the 08/03/2012, i am in WA
My mum ordered this phone on the 8th too and has just got it today, we are in WA also.
deal had expired only around now for 24 hours
not sure if you familiar with COTD - they change products and deals daily
Nice deal, brings down to $149.05 delivered with ILOVECATCH coupon code.
I've 'downgraded' from iPhone 4 to this. Very happy as most people have said - great phone for the price. The touch interface is equal to the iPhone while I've found the touch keyboard on the LG is better - love it.
The only things I am missing are cheap/big selection of iOS apps (angry birds is $3.49!) and a decent camera (the LG camera is very average).
iPhone 4 is $400+ so happy with $157 shipped (used iOS app to purchase on last deal)
is there a good database app for windows mobile?
it's got Excel built in- not sure if that's sufficient
can this phone be tethered to - optus my tab ?
yes it can do wireless hotspot once all updates complete
thank u 4 that
I bought this phone from the last deal for my mum and just received it yesterday. I upgraded it to WP7 7.5 Mango before giving it to her but she finds it too complicated to use (She is back to using her Nokia 3310).
So I'd like to sell it for cheaper than this deal. I'd like to sell it to someone in Melbourne as I am able to meet up/deliver in northern and eastern suburbs or City.
Please PM if interested.
still up for grabs? i tried to PM you but apparently your settings don't allow you to receive them..
Anyone find the SAR radiation levels for this phone?
Had a quick look but couldn't find this exact model.
Previous LG phones have been pretty high.
Slowly being tempted. I'm sure we'll see it again.
LG E900 Optimus 7 SAR rating(1.6W/kg) = 0.63 and SAR rating 2.0W/kg) = 1.47
But i have no idea what that means.
But then this website "http://www.phonerated.com/c-lg+e900+optimus+7-pros-and-cons-review" says its 1.28 w/kg which is apparently really bad ????
According to the Manual:
The SAR limit recommended by the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP)
is 2W/kg averaged over 10g of tissue.
• The highest SAR value for this model phone tested by DASY4 for use at the ear is 0.935 W/kg (10g) and when
worn on the body is 1.47 W/Kg(10g).
• The SAR limit recommended by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is 1.6 W/kg averaged over 1g of tissue.
i see this deal is on again - any further comments on it ? seems fairly positive if you want a phone, rather than a toy.
Just got mine. Certainly heavier than I expected.
