rafaelluik, 28 Apr 2013You can disable the lock screen via the settings, you don't need an app for that in that phone.how?
i am using this phone for last 3-4 months.i used the camera/video frequently.Now i am having so many photos in my camera because of which lot of space in my phone is used up.i want to transfer these photos/videos to my lap top or drop box.i was told that LG provides free drop box with this phone.how to download photos in that and where to find it?i tried on net and phone but not able to do it.Please help me.
kforever, 26 Apr 2013Confused, why this phone cannot move (not important) program to External SD such as game. Only... moreActually other brands' phones that come with Android ICS/JB don't let you to move apps, it's default new Android behavior. :/

kforever, 26 Apr 2013me too. it use until 320 mb and sometimes crash -__- still don't know how to figure it out. ... moretry the old facebook app because the new one takes a lot of ram,or use the new facebbok app but remove whats up,it eats a lot of ram...
Confused, why this phone cannot move (not important) program to External SD such as game. Only photo and music. Waste so much internal memory not likely to other brand that more flexible.

Ive been using this phone for 2 weeks now and it looks like amazing ..No issues encountered and works smoothly in the net . Super fast browsing and the video is so cool.. I salute LG for making Optimus 7 one of the affordable smartphone in the market .Chad and mark ..better buy new LG phones , it really rocks the world for fun..
jom, 23 Apr 2013why is my lg optimus l7 always restarting? please answer.thank you..The reason it does so is because of the low ram and the heavy ICS system. The more applications you leave running in the background the more ram uses and thus it has to restart to clear memory. Also even if u dont have alot of apps in the background but it still restarts is because of the amount of social apps you have. When you connect to the internet it starts syncing all your social apps and google account which can use up your memory and thus you will see your phone beginning to get ultra laggy just like mine. And if you try to run apps while its syncing and you will know because the phone starts to lag then your device will restart. These are issues with the phone that LG better fix in Jellybean because ICS is a heavy OS for phones and the L7 really cant run it properly with the slow processor and ram. Other phones run it better with the same spec is because the phone manufacturer (HTC,Samsung...) take out those special screen scrolling effects and those extra heave system apps.
PERKEDEL_BULUK2, 22 Apr 2013okay i got this phone for my main phone now so i gonna give a small quick review about spec an... moreI agree with everything that you said. L7 has awesome hardware platform (not dual-core, but it performs outstandigly), but its software/firmware realization really sucks. OS sometimes behaves really unstable, games are lagging, but even with stock ROM and latest offical JB, it beats Xperia J (biggest problem of any device from Sony Xperia series is their overfilled OS, dozens of useless apps and background proccesses which slowes the phone down > LG is not far from that conclusion).
I had Motorola Defy Mini as my first smartphone, now I got L7. Performance differences are unforeseeable. I am very satisfied with it and I would recommend this cheap device to any "big-screen Android" fan. You will not regret.
okay i got this phone for my main phone now so i gonna give a small quick review about spec and lag problem
first the cpu MSM 7227A is based on cortex a5 cpu but real world perfomance and benchmark suggest it was on par with the scorpion snapdragon s2 and a single cortex a9 (wow) but... if the rom is good and optimized enough..... like on xperia J for example
second ly the adreno 200 enhanced gpu is quite good do not confuse it with old adreno 200. The adreno 200 enhanced(ussually with tm mark) is overclocked/new design architecture. The perfomance is faster than the sgx 530@220mhz on omap 3630 that power lg optimus black it does even beat the old adreno 205 on xperia play with old gpu driver(gingerbread) and it's perfomance is near the overclocked sgx 531@300mhz on mediatek 6577.it's fillrate its same as the sgx 540 on hummingbird and ulp geforce in tegra 2,
The main drawback its texturing perfomance is half of the adreno 205(GL benchmark). If you confused about what i talking about just search on google... but overal the gpu is not to be laugh about,it surely will run 90% games on google play.
if that's the fact why LG optimus L7 lag in some aspect or maybe some games?
good question.... why? because LG sucks on making a good optimized firmware/rom with good perfomance and that's since the lg optimus X2 the world first dual core android phone come to this world.
first of all the stock ICS rom on lg optimus l7 is based on 4.0.3 its know for bad perfomance,if lg use 4.0.4 there will be a little lag problem and it will have a quite smooth perfomance
secondly LG does have a bad ram management on these stock rom,after few hours opening and closing application the phone become slow and more slower and even it crashing some games and kick me to the home screen but with a restart sure will cure the problem.
thirdly dont compare it with xperia J on term of perfomance,it beat lg optimus l7 on linpack(38 vs 25 LG L7) and even on vellamo(1000 vs 700 LG L7). Sony is optimizing the firmware on xperia J so it run smoothly and xperia J does run on 4.0.4 not on 4.0.3 like lg l7 do
how to cure the problem?
if you stay on ICS flash your phone to latest ICS update,root it and use supercharger or ram manager pro
or you just flash your phone to Jellybean the V20A give you a great perfomance while the V20B give you good score benchmark(same level with xperia J)(havent try it just read from XDA)
