LG replaces faulty Optimus 7 units with Android smartphones
Wouldn't you be annoyed if for one reason or another, you were forced to use a smartphone that you don't really like? You know, like being a passionate Windows Phone user and then having to switch to Android all of a sudden. Unfortunately, that is exactly what at least several LG Optimus 7 owners are now experiencing, and read along to find out why.
It is being reported that some Optimus 7 units are malfunctioning due to a hardware problem that cannot be repaired, meaning that unlucky owners are being given a replacement device. However, LG has completely ran out of stock – even the Jil Sander model is nowhere to be found, which is why those unfortunate Optimus 7 owners are getting Android smartphones. According to Plaffo, the LG Optimus 3D is being given as a replacement.
On one hand, the Optimus 3D isn't that bad of a smartphone, and after all, LG is doing the right thing, namely honoring the warranty of its customers. However, being a Windows Phone 7 user for a long time and then switching to Android unexpectedly would likely frustrate the average user, especially if they were happy with Microsoft's mobile platform.
