Camera interface - LG Optimus L7 II Review

Camera interface

The Optimus L7 II features an 8-megapixel auto-focus camera with a single LED flash. Images we captured turned out a bit on the soft side with color burning in some areas, but generally fairly well and with sufficient amount of detail.

We have to highlight the burst shot feature that is a rarity for mid-range devices, but is here on the L7 II. It allows you to take 6 quick continuous shots - perfect for sports events or other occasions with fast moving objects.

LG’s camera interface is also really convenient. The company has gone for large, distinct icons and bundles in its Cheese shutter that fires the camera whenever you say a keyword like “Cheese” or “Smile”.

The depth of the interface would please enthusiast camera photographers too - it has ISO and white balance settings, along with scene modes and color effects.

Video recording is a bit of a disappointment, though. The camera cannot capture 720p HD video - instead video recording maxes out at 480p at 30 frames per second. Colors were mostly in check, but we noticed a few skipped frames here and there. There is also a VGA front camera, good for video conferencing and little else.

LG Optimus L7 II Sample Video:


The vivid 4.3-inch display is a perfect asset for video playback, and LG capitalizes on that adding DivX/Xvid support out of the box. Moreover, the video player is rich in options allowing you to stream videos via DLNA with one touch and play back videos in a separate window on top of what you are already doing (so you can say text and watch a video at the same time).

Music output is also loud and clear via the rear loudspeaker. The music player is straightforward, simple yet rich in options allowing you to browse your collection by songs, artists, albums and genres. It supports playlists and has folder view for those of you who prefer to manually play back their music from folders.

with so many pros for a mid ranger and considering the price tag this phone is actually good, so it deserves 8 for its range..

Just bought this phone and it is has very good response. I'm not sure if PA's unit is a prototype or just simply outdated but my LG Optimus L7 Series II Dual is buttery smooth on 4.1.2.
