LG E900 Optimus 7 review: Lucky seven - read the full textWindows Phone 7 is new territory for LG to conquer and the LG E900 Optimus 7 is their first pawn in the game. However “pawn” hardly describes the rich feature set of this player. LG has done its best to set the Optimus 7 apart...

I had this phone for 6 months and from the start I had problems. The phone overheats whilst charging, regularly causing it to restart. It also overheats when you use it for an extended period of time (15 minutes or more - which is a relatively common amount of time to use on a smartphone!). For some reason, WhatsApp in particular really overheats the phone. When it gets to a certain temperature, it turns off and restarts, but often gets stuck on the LG logo at the start. Finally after doing this for 6 months it won't turn on at all. Total waste of money. Do not buy!

Imagine these company profit making like Apple, Google, Exxon contribute to the economy instead of taxing consumers or working class people, we will be back to our Grade GREAT rating. WE THE CONSUMER ARE THE ONE WHO'S HELPING THE ECONOMY, so keep the price low.

one of the best phones i have bought in a long time, i used nokia for most of my life and had never thought of changing, my eyes have been opened. Phone is nice ones you get around all the tid-bits and get it working to your liking. Apps you can get are great and as for the stupid ringtones you can only use, there is an app that will shorten you fav song to 40 secs so you can use this and change your ringtone, i did this in the first hour of having this phone. Great for kids as well, somany educational apps its not funny and all for free. Needs to have stereo headphones as standard, a better music player would be great, something like windows music player would have been a good idea, over all great happiness with this phone.

Got mine yesterday and I really do like it. The phone is obviously very good and well built but I wasn't too sure about Windows. Turns out it's great - far better than I expected and it will improve once again when the Mango update comes out.

ios is just old windows mobile with a finger instead of a stylus. not taking apps into account wm7 is much better than ios/android.

WP7 looks and works better than all the other OS, I've tried them all. And with a new update coming soon, it's gonna be great!

I wished it has all the feature of mobile windows 6.5. I cannot believe this version 7 is unable to work/sync with MS outlook; which is considered the basic of microsoft. I cant help thinking that MS did a lousy job with this version 7.

* No system-wide file manager
agreed missing.. problem
* No Bluetooth file transfers
Just like the Iphone, it will come in the form of an app if people want it. No Issue
* No USB mass storage mode
Perhaps a missing feature if people are looking for this.. however Like bluetooth file transfer an app will come like they did on the earlier iphones..
* No Flash or Silverlight support in the browser
They aren't needed quite honestly.
* Too dependent on Zune software for file management and syncing
exactly like the iphone and itunes? this is really a con?
* No video calls
who cares?
* New ringtones available only through the Marketplace
con, however I would expect an app to pop up.
* No multitasking
enabled for first party functions, rarely necessary for others.
* No copy/paste
coming in the first update
* No DivX/XviD video support (automatic transcoding provided by Zune software)
an App will support it

Interesting that your arguments match those of apple fanboys. Technology is supposed to fulfil a need, not create it.

an overpriced product that can't even do what cheap phones can. perfect for people who only like shiny things.

I seriously doubt the caliber of the person who reviewed this product.

Its a wonderful OS and this review is biased from the start. You cannot flash on the first page that it cannot play falsh, etc, etc..

I am using one of the phones and its just "WONDERFUL". The only feature I miss is the cut/paste functionality and this will be enabled before Feb 2011.

So stop complaining and learn to appreciate whats truly beautiful.

Phone 7 looks good. But when I read all the Phone 7 specific limitations, I immediately thought; "My God, this is even worse than iOS"

...and that should say it all...

Ok so.. .


* No system-wide file manager
agreed missing.. problem
* No Bluetooth file transfers
Just like the Iphone, it will come in the form of an app if people want it. No Issue
* No USB mass storage mode
Perhaps a missing feature if people are looking for this.. however Like bluetooth file transfer an app will come like they did on the earlier iphones..
* Limited third-party apps availability
That is changing every week, I also take offense with the idea that quantity equates better.. I don't need 700 tip calculators, or diet plan app.
* No Flash or Silverlight support in the browser
They aren't needed quite honestly.
* Too dependent on Zune software for file management and syncing
exactly like the iphone and itunes? this is really a con?
* No video calls
who cares?
* New ringtones available only through the Marketplace
con, however I would expect an app to pop up.
* Music player lacks equalizer presets
perhaps a con.
* No multitasking
enabled for first party functions, rarely necessary for others.
* No copy/paste
coming in the first update
* No DivX/XviD video support (automatic transcoding provided by Zune software)
an App will support it
* No sign of free Bing maps Navigation so far
Turn by turn bing maps and street view..
* No internet tethering support
not true
* No handwriting recognition support
who cares?
* Twitter client does not integrate with phonebook
interesting..
