Review: LG Optimus F7 for U.S. Cellular
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.
LG's customizations to Android allow F7 owners to fine-tune their own experience with no impact on the device's performance. Extras such as the Qslide and QuickMemo apps are fun to have and might even come in handy from time to time. The typical set of Android tools all work well. The camera, in particular, impressed me with its results.
For $99, it's hard to beat the LG Optimus F7. Though there are several other device in that price range on U.S. Cellular's shelves, the F7 is clearly the best option in its tier.
