F7 has flash, F5 doesn't have flash
I have the Escape P870,is the same phone and don't have flash. In my case, I really don't use too much the camera, so it's not a problem for me. For that I have a reflex camera. In other hand, the phone is really fast. For the price I've bought the phone, really worth it. If you don´t mind take night photos and want a fast phone, you should give it a try to this phone. Check this benchmark of P870 http://dl.xda-developers.com/attachdl/10ea9aa87cf2870f685dda706e784eac/51a534e6/1/9/3/5/6/7/9/uploadfromtaptalk1367695166167.jpg
Anonymous, 26 May 2013available in Hong kong alreadyYes. Someone bought and reported that it has no flash. You can read in the comments, it is somewhere below.

I think LED issue is resolved.
User, 24 May 2013" At the back, there's a 5MP autofocus camera, compete with an LED flash." quote fro... moreUnfortunately that might be written with haste or they didn't think there won't be a flash. C'mon who can imagine a camera without flasg except... There is no indication in anywhere, not even on LG's website that the phone actually has flash. And if you look at the pictures of the phones back there is no flash. Plus, someone from Hong Kong said he bought it and there was no flash.
Until the phone is really out can't say with %100 that it does not ahve flash but %90 chance it's not gonna have one. Which is a real shame. :(

My guess is they either forgot it or made a poor judgement. People who are considering to buy it would still have bought it if it had flash (more gladly possibly), but not every one of them is gonna buy it because the lack of flash. It's that simple unfortunately.
Iceman0611, 17 May 2013Lg is trying to balance quality and affordability. Hence, a mid range phone with cool specs wi... moreI understand what you are saying. But unfortunately that's not it. Do you know how much a flash will add to the cost? They either forgot it or they made a big mistake. LG's poor decisions like this prevents it from being a major player. LG' hardware is better than Samsung but it is sooo behind Samsung.
Major reason is Samsung supplies best software support to it's phones, LG doesn't. Galaxy S2 got JB, LG's similar phones got only a poorly done ICS. And they gave it because of the huge protests of the users. Otherwise LG was decided not to give. Oh, and they give it very very late, people were using JB when LG gave it. LG cuts the support and forces you to buy new phones. Which is soo poor judgement. A new phone every year? Gotta be a joke..
I love LG. Despite it's major faults it's still my first choice. But unfortunately it has poor judgements. Like this "flash" issue. It's very simple.I'll buy this phone if it will have flash. If not i'll buy a Samsung or Sony. This is my opinion of course. But there is one fact; everyone who is considering to buy this phone would still buy it if it had a flash, but not all of them aregonna buy it because it doesn't have it.
Lg is trying to balance quality and affordability. Hence, a mid range phone with cool specs witout the flash.
Visitor, 09 May 2013Yeah, it has LED flash, article about LG optimus at MWC 2013 mentioned it.No it doesn't have. I surfed the net, also watched a lot of "hands-on" video of the phone at MWC 2013. There was no flash. Autofocus and gyroscope are still unknown. Also If you look below someone bought it in Hong Kong and gave feedback. No flash.
I am really having hard time to understand. Let's leave gyroscope out. How can a camera doesn't have flash and autofocus? Lg makes different models so every models has some features and lacks some. But these are standart features. You can't just cut them. Anyway i am waiting for Europe versions may be they can be different. Though i don't think they will be. I am already searching for another phone. LG seriously disappointed me. I was waiting for a long for something solid to replace my P970 -> Best phone Lg ever made. Aside the fact that they didn't give the attention to the phone it deserves.
akshay, 29 Apr 2013if there is flash on the mobile then it is complete the users requirements...Yeah, it has LED flash, article about LG optimus at MWC 2013 mentioned it.
Anonymous, 05 May 2013I just bought the phone in Hong Kong
- The camera doesn't come with flash
- the phone seems ... moreThx for the info. Who makes a camera without flash? Ridiculous. And also software problem which is not a suprise for LG. I am guessing no gyroscope too. Way to make a phone less desirable. I thougt this could be a successor for P970, I was planning to buy it but now i don't.
Looks like i'm gonna have to wait another year to buy a decent phone. New phones are either giant and/or ugly, or missing important features like, SD card, flash, gyroscope... etc.
I just bought the phone in Hong Kong
- The camera doesn't come with flash
- the phone seems have problem with Power Saver mode,
after enable Power Saver mode and charge it overnight
the phone will not wake up when you press power buttom
I have to remove and install the battery again to power on the phone.
However for the phone's performance
It works great with my 3G Carrier , reception is okay, voice call quality is acceptable (compare with my old LG P500) , didn't play games but web browsing is fast!
This looks like a phone that i would buy but... I have 3 reservations so 3 questions?
1-Does this really have no flash? and will not have?
2-And also no gyroscope?
These 2 are real deal breakers. And the last one is more like a reservation. Cos LG is recidivist on this matter. I have an P970 i would know so;
3-How will the software support be later on, i mean after we bought. Will we be stock on 4.1.2 while other people using 6.x It's already 4.2.2 and phone is coming with this. Giving the Lg's track on software support it doesn't look promising.
I can accept a simple point to right direction if questions can't be answered. I wanted to ask LG directly but i don't know any contact address. The one in my country has even less knowledge than me.
It should have a flash to compliment the 5MP camera specially on capturing pics and video at night an low light backgrounds or locations..Pls have the flash available for this phone ASAP to make it salable.
