You guys fail badly.
The phone works PERFECT but ONLY if you root it and make a couple of tweaks.
Tips: root, 1008mhz overclock, v6supercharge, sd card speed tweak.

cool ankur, 15 Jan 2013this phn is very slow i mean very bad Never understood people complaining just for the sake of doing so and too lazy to read a few pages back of the current discussion :-[
Phone is fast and responsive - I can play on it GTA Vice City and Tiral Xtreme 3 without any lags. One has to follow some simple rules and do one to two tweaks in order to keep the maximum performance.
The native Google Youtube application works just great. May be you just do not have internet connection, or it is too slow to support playback. Also the MX Player (check GooglePlay) handles MP4 files up to 540p effortlessly.
As already noted - current phones have a different internal flash memory organization rendering app2sd useles. Still there is a woraround using the RemountSD program to COMBINE the internal and external flash memory into one large array. Then there is no need to move any application or data - it natively is installed on the SD card.
Rooting is simple. Same applies for almost all Android phones - just google for " XDA Developers Rooting". The fisrt few pages will ALWAYS lead you to the XDA Developers forum where you can download all files required to root your phone.
You said you have updated to V10i 4.0.3, but have you done a complete system wipe BEFORE and AFTER doing so?!? If not your phone at the moment is a weird mixture of old and new files and libraries and of course you will experience lags, etc. Simply KDZ relash it following the instructions to the letter.
You what?!? You DELETED ALL Google apps? No froze them using Titanium Backup?!? Then I can guess that at the moment your phone simply cannot sync media and you have the process Mediaserver running endlessly and eating up 95% of your CPU power and 30% of battery time. Sorry but some things have to be done with extreme caution, which you did not!
Here are the answers to some of your quiestions:
1) 720p HD video is supported, but depends on the video format. I successfully playback MP4 HD movies. 1080p is lagging too much.
2) Video quality is near perfect for this size and type of screen. Picture is crisp and detailed, colors are vibrant.
3) Gaming level is on par with devices of much higher price. I have no problems playng simple games as Temple Run and Falling Fred, as well as heavyer 3D games like N.O.V.A, Dungeon Hunter, Trial Xtreme 3, GTA: Vice City, etc.
4) Device is "upgradeable" to JellyBean, but the JB for LG L7 is still not ready. At the same time the phone bottloader is locked which prevents users from flashing custom ROMS like CyanoGEN Mod 9, or MUIU. Next scheduled date for upgrades by LG is Feb-12-2013 - so in less than a month we will know for sure if there will be JB for us, or just some V10k update.
2Pac4Life, 12 Jan 2013A big waste of money ... I regret so much buying this phone !! This phone is practically usele... moreI have been using this phone since last 6 months.. Phone is terribly slow.. Doesnt play HD Video... I regret buying the phone... If u want to buy android phone.. U should, consider only samsung or htc or sony...
Anonymous, 14 Jan 2013i bought this phone 2 days ago i cant play my youtube..why?I also have no Youtube access. Also, no MP4 playback in video player apps.
This will not play MP4, message onscreen says "unsupported file type" so the spec must be wrong. The YouTube app won't work. I bought this from Argos in UK, with £90 discount. No wonder it is discounted - it doesn't work properly.
k, 02 Dec 2012Get app2sd by sam lu in google play.free app2sd app doesn't work on L7 P700.
imnotbiaslikeothers, 11 Jan 2013you probably messed up the device and overload it with games it obviously cant run. people... moreor buy an Xperia U like I did. Even cheaper than this, but has dual-core processor with Mali 400 graphics and with good 280 PPI. Runs GTA 3 just fine with no lag.
people who saying that this phone i too slow they dont know to use android phone
1.root your lg l7
2.install "root app delete" from google play and delete all apps you dont use even the nfc apps you can delete
3.install root explorer and edit system/etc/build.props google how and what
4.install "pimp my rom" app from google play and tweak your android
if this not helps in speed than buy quad core cpu android and dont blame lg it is your foult that you dont know how to use smartphone
