The specs is perfect for my smartphone needs, huge removable battery(Sony's XSP is not) amazing screen to phone ratio, this will be comfortable for one hand use. Not excited about S4,G Pro, Z or any Full HD's and Quad cores. F7 is more than enough. Good job LG. I hope this will be released before the worthy competitor from Sony, the XSP. Cheaper with decent specs, in fact it's battery is much bigger than most of 2013 flagships.
LG's fatal mistake, announce today,release 6 months later worwide
lg common increase ur stores in india u can give a gud competition to samsung galaxy.
lg quality is gud but in india no distributors and handsets r not available in india for eg optimus l9 success model but no availability. should increase ur stores in india lg.
Deeboy, 18 Mar 2013Xperia ion maybe cheaper than f7 but it is far from better than f7.
Advantages of f7 over ion... moreYeah
Don't forget Ion CPU GPU is outdated
Snapdragon S3 + Andreno 220 = ION vs
Snapdragon S4 + Andreno 225 = F7
Performance F7 can compete vs Quad Core A9 base (T3 and Exynos 4412)
Anonymous, 16 Mar 2013Xperia Ion has got better specifications than F7 at a lower price than F7.
12mp c... moreXperia ion maybe cheaper than f7 but it is far from better than f7.
Advantages of f7 over ion is just innumerable, for example 4.7" over 4.5" screen. Android 4.1 jellybean out of de box while x.ion is still on old outdated gingerbread.
F.7 has 2gigs ram, ion has 1gig Although both use dualcore cpu f7 will be flawless in
multitasking. F7 has true hd ips screen x.ion has Lcd screen which has reportedly been offering worse viewing angles than pentile amoled screens. And yes, the huge 2,540 removable batt. Over sony's 1900 unremovable battery. like i pointed out de list goes on...
My question is just why does Lg lagg behind in pushing it's devices soon after announcement? This is bad, real bad!
Samsung phones are available in all stores worldwide.
LG phones are NOT available in India in any leading stores like Croma or reliance digital or Mobile Store.
besides having good quality, customers can't able to buy LG because of unavailability of phone in leading stores.
the after sales service are good and is located in all major cities. LG pls don't step in Motorola way.
Xperia Ion has got better specifications than F7 at a lower price than F7.
12mp camera with exmor sensor
1080@30 fps HD video
1.5ghz dual processor
13gb inbuilt mem expandable 32 gb
upgradable to android 4.1
while F7 doesn't match these specs and price is between INR 27 and 30k.
in fact F7's specs match match with HTC desire SV, Samsung grand.
HTC desire sv cost around 19k INR
Samsung grand 21k INR
so i think F7 must cost around between 20 - 23k INR.
F7 didn't lunched in India yet. the only plus point in this phone is its 4G phone .
Here we are again, LG 's failure is releasing quickly to specific and delaying so much for a worldwide elease. I was hoping to buy F7, but the price mentioned, i cant simply afford.
This phone is a rival to Samsung Grand. both phones are having about same specifications.
but this phone is bit expensive than Grand and xperia ion.
Samsung is trying to release its new products worldwide that too by keeping its cost as minimal as it can. hence most people is opting Samsung.
I have a question. why don't LG and Sony release its products worldwide rather than releasing products at specific region wise?
i am using Optimus GT540 for more than 3 years. now looking a midrange phone.
but $533 is too expensive.
AnonD-48321, 11 Mar 2013Any news about the price or launch date ?Already released in Korea. In Korea Optimus F7 is Optimus LTE III. Price is 553USD (600,000 won).
I do like this phone for a price of 400USD. Unfortunately, it was already out in Korea for a price of 553$ (600,000 Won). In Korea this Optimus F7 is Optimus LTE III. Sorry I can't afford it.

This is called optimus lte iii in south korea.http://lgmobile.co.kr/mobile-phone/F260/LG-F260S/
LG when are u going to release your 2013 lineup. The Optimus 4X HD was released 6 months after announcement and it failed as well as the Optimus G. If u will do the same(releasing after 6 months after announcement) you will fail. Samsung and Apple are doing a great job on releasing quickly after announcing their flagships.
