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...

 

Sort by:

I think the UI of Windows7 for mobile is uniqe, but in a bad ways.

I wonder if microsoft will be a major player in mobile with this OS. 3 fail Os in the row? the old MS WinCE/WinMO, the Kin OS, now this???

It seems to me that in the future samsung wave and MS will gone. so it come down to symbian, iphone, android, and BB new neutrino-based-OS.

All of you get cheated, WP7 smooth is because the system and interface go back to text based.

Think of running a Win98 in a Quad core 3.0 CPU, Im sure you will say its very fast and smooth...

from that perspective, it is really working nice. I just wish Microsoft wouldn't have dropped the Mobile Device Center in favor of Zune SW. Synchronization and file transfer is now a real hassle ... ! :-(

Wouldn't Stereo Crosstalk change from headphones to headphones? when the they are attached that is? Do you guys use one pair of headphones or the stock ones included with each phone?

@the reviewer:
"No stereo speakers" as a con - really?

You made my day, brother! As if I would worry about stereo speakers in a tiny little 'smaller than my hand' device! That is what headsets are made for. Who would want to listen to stereo sound out of tiny pipsy speakers?

- - -

Throughout the years, I've noticed how GSMArena reviews shift to 'what is the entertainment value of the device' rather than focusing on core features, such as taking the device in your own hands, dial a number and see for yourself how it sounds. (Your graphical audio stat doesn't mean anything to the majority of people here and it also only reflects music playback, not voice clarity!).

Well,
I could write a book on how reviews always focus on the 'feature parts' rather than the core functions of a cell phone, yet, I have better things to do!

HTC HD7 review http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WCOU4JE_rtg , part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=59gg1sKVC3o

ULTRASMOOTH!! WOW :)

Phonemarket has two ultrasmooth OS and they are iOS and WP7

if i'm going to buy new phone i dont want to loose that smoothness what i have had like year and only option for me is WP7 and it's looking very good option!.

But i think i'm waiting the WP7 os update which is coming early 2011 then i decide if i'm going to try WP7 over iphone.

the awful limitation are apparent and the ui turns most people off as soon as they use it. Its like a file manager app with some colours added. wp7 has been on sale in my retail store for two weeks now and we haven't sold one yet,only one or two vague enquires which don't last long as soon as folks see the interface,not gonna last long this os id say

I don't like WP7 interface to much, especially home screen but i must give credit to it on how smooth the interface works. I have HTC Desire with android and it isn't that smooth. Don't get me wrong, android is much much better then WP7 but i like that smoothness on wp7. I hope when wp7 becomes more complex will not loose that smoothness.

but DON'T get me wrong about other Windows releases, I like Windows Embedded Compact 7 (for tablets) and Windows 7 for desktop of course.

win 7 is going to be a terrible flop.it cannot satisfy an average user.on other hand symbian even allows you to use your pen drive with phone.it is the ultimate functional os.their will be no takers for win 7..if they do not improve

Windows Phone 7 is going to take market share every year.

Who wants to use a fragmented, buggy os like android? If you want speed and ease of use including XBOX LIVE! then it's the best phone out there.

Plus with all the frequent updates coming it will eclipse all other phones. Plus software is independant, so IE can be updated without harming the os.

I really don't understand the move Microsoft tried to make with WP7... they turned the best power user OS into a weaker, more limited version of the iOS, which is basically it's opposite. Or used to be. At least Apple are actually improving their OS. In my opinion, NO file manager, NO multitasking, and no Copy-Paste(ok, let's say this is kinda cheap, but I love copy-paste, it's so useful!) automatically disqualifies any OS from making a "smartphone". Incidentally, I still can't bring myself to call the Iphone a smartphone.

love the UI but that's just about it. wouldn't be paying much on something that can't even do what lower-end phones can.
