It was a good phone, but a simple short accidental drop can smash the screen easily.
I´ve had this phone for 2 years now. Overall experience is not bad, it's a good machine but with some apointments to LG. First, we had the "hotspot" issue, the firmware that LG had but didn't release to all clients. Still don't have it, but some owners got it from their carriers, like Vodafone Italy and Germany. I'm portuguese btw. After many emails between me and LG support they told me that is up to the carriers to decide to give the firmware update, i explained that my phone is unbranded, no carrier. No answer and no solution from LG or Microsoft, terrible. I should also tell you that LG support sucks, it seems they don't know what they are talking about, they disagree with you, you prove them wrong, they say no such update, you prove them wrong, and on and on for a few emails. Second, last update, WP 7.8, same thing, no support, 'till this day i don't have an answer from LG, gladly i got it from Zune. Conclusion, somewhat happy with WP platform, but my experience with LG support was so negative that i'll never buy anything from them again.
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!

Update my E900 to WP 7.8 (EU Open) by tricking update server... All good for now.
I'm a phone dealer and I have an opportunity to try out a lot of different phones. Here is my short review of 1 year used LG E900 Optimus 7:
BUILD QUALITY(the chassis): Top notch, no screeching, wobbling or anything like that. The only place that paint could fall off of is the camera part.
DISPLAY: while it's not as good as on some flagship phones, its still good enough considering it is a TFT. Sunlight legibility is average, not good, but not bad either. Viewing angles are average.
TELEPHONY: telephony and signal reception is trouble-free, the earpiece sound is clean enough is pretty loud. Be careful not to set the earpiece volume on maximum all the time because the earpiece sound could get a bit screechy with time. Hold it at 8/10 or 9/10, maximum only if you have to.
CAMERA: while the photo quality is slightly above average for a 5 MPix league, video quality is somewhat troubling. The amount of details in videos are still good but the framerate can only be maintained at declared 24 fps where the daylight is alomost perfect. In the darker areas framerate drops to about 17 fps, but overall, average framerate hovers about 20-21 fps.
GPS: it's fast to acquire a lock and keep a strong reception.
The rest of the phone is pretty much the same as you get with all WP7 phones, so there is no need to go into it further.
Yesterday I have installed 7.8 update via Zune, force update. So, yes, Optimus 7 is updateable, despite some saying LG will not get WP 7.8
Actually this phone is upgradeable to SO WP7.8!
Doing it as I write here, standard Zune update.

THE WORST SMARTPHONE EVER...after 1 year keeps restarting with no reason (it restarted 4 times during a 5 min conversation),the ”hold” and ”speaker” function activate for no reason during conversation. Even the plastic material of the phone has melted last summer, not in direct light of the sun,but in a bag...
GOOD WORK LG PROGRAMMERS AND DESIGNERS,TRY A HONEST JOB IN THE FUTURE!!!
ahnuz, 08 Dec 2012I have this phone..running on 7.0 os... I can't see any apps or games on Marketplace..it only ... moreApp Market is closed for devices running on lower verison of WP than Mango, you need to update.
Nice phone, I use it as my second phone for about a year, it is really good, WP7 OS is fast and nice, camera is not the best, but it is ok. WP7 OS is much nicer than Android 2.x. Sure Android 4.x is more advanced, but at that time when it was bought there were no other options.
It will be real pitty if it will not get WP 7.8
