Building on Microsoft's new operating system, the LG Optimus 7 offers consumers a whole new experience of mobile life. It offers the glance and go experience of Windows Phone 7 combined with unique features only available on the LG devices. These include the DLNA-based Play To, augmented reality and Voice-to-Text, which can all be added as Live Tiles on the Windows Phone 7 to personalize your device and can be accessed via integrated "Hubs". Its "Play To" feature will let you share multimedia files with other digital devices from the picture, video or music Hubs without having to access other menus. You can display videos and photos captured on LG Optimus 7 from a TV. Not only that, you can also enjoy music on your phone through your favorite speakers without wires. The 720p HD video resolution offers recording and playback of stunning visual quality with the 16:9 aspect capture and playback for shooting and viewing movies in cinematic style and it's ideal for sharing online through social media.
The advanced 5MP camera offers a host of technological enhancements from LG such as Intelligent Shot, which lets users take the perfect photo without having to adjust camera settings, and Panoramic Mode for stitching together a full 360-degree landscape scene. With the expansive 3.8 inch WVGA LCD display you can capture every detail in a photo with its 800x480 pixels. The screen size makes the Optimus 7 large enough for convenient web surfing but svelte enough to fit in any back pocket.
The "Voice to Text" feature allows you to communicate without the need for finger input, just speak up and be heard. If you are the owner of this cool phone you'll have the freedom to transcribe your voice into text for updating Facebook and Twitter or composing emails and memos for the experience of convenient, hands-free communication. If you love to shopping or dining outside, the ScanSearch augmented-reality app lays icons of nearby restaurants, cafes and other snack emporia on an image seen through the camera lens. It gets its results from Google or Bing searches, so the content is accurate, but, like most augmented-reality applications, I found it fun for a fleeting moment, rather than truly functional.
For entertainment, owners of the LG Optimus 7 will have direct access to their favorite games and music which brings all entertainment devices together for more convenient enjoyment. You can enjoy a new era of entertainment through the introduction of Microsoft's popular Xbox Live and Zune services. With the generous 16GB of internal memory is enough to store hundreds of MP3 files, hours of video and hundreds of applications. Furthermore, the extra large 1500mAh removable battery is good for hours of Internet browsing, e-book reading or game playing, or for simply talking. So, if you're looking to upgrade to a smart phone that's easy to use and more affordable than the iPhone, the LG Optimus 7 could float your boat.
