The LG Optimus L7 II Dual is a mid-segment phone from LG. The phone is a dual SIM phone. The device features a 4.3 inch IPS LCD, capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It runs on Android v 4.1.2 (JellyBean), which is backed by 1.0 GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm MSM8225 Snapdragon processor and 768 MB of RAM. The phone also has Adreno 203 for graphics support. The phone comes with a 2460 mAh Li-Ion battery.

The phone features an 8-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, as well as a secondary VGA camera for video calling and self shots.

The phone also supports various camera features such as geo-tagging, zoom, Normal shot, Panorama, Continuous shot, Portrait, Landscape, Sports, Night, Sunset, etc.

Some of the unique features on the phone are the Quick Switch Dual SIM Hot Key, which is a dedicated hot key allowing the user to switch between SIM 1 and SIM 2 with the push of a button. The phone also has a Real-Time Quicktranslator, which allows the user to scan a sign, a menu or anything else and translate it into another language. The feature recognizes 44 languages and translates into 64 languages. The LG Optimus L7 II Dual also has Cross-Tasking QSlide feature, which allows the user to simultaneously run two functions on transparent layer on the phone.

Nokia, the Finnish multinational communications and information technology corporation, is known for it highly durable mobile phones. However, with the increasing onset of smartphones, the sales of Nokia’s simple but durable phones started to drop. To offset this trend, Nokia tied up with Microsoft to launch a series of smartphones based on Microsoft’s Windows. This series of phones branded as Nokia Lumia run on Microsoft Windows Mobile 8.

One of the newest smartphones under the brand is the Nokia Lumia 620. Nokia Lumia 620 is aimed at the entry-level buyers who want to try a Windows Phone 8 but can’t afford to spend too much on it. The phone is a decent enough piece of merchandise, especially considering its price. It features a 3.8-inch screen with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Dual-core 1 GHz Krait and a 512 MB RAM. It has an 8 GB internal storage capacity and an external storage expandable up to 64 GB.

The Nokia Lumia 620 has a 5 MP camera with auto focus and LED flash, as well as a secondary front-facing VGA camera. The phone like most of the phones under the Lumia brand is available in a variety of bright colors, such as lime green, orange, magenta, yellow, cyan, and the usually white and black. In fact, the phone comes with back panels in these colors allowing the user to change the phone’s color every few days.

However, the phone has been criticized as looking a bit plasticky and cheap. The phone is also a bit on the heavier side. Another issue with the phone, in fact all the Windows phones, is that it comes with the Internet Explorer browser built-in, which can be quite lagging at times, and the phones do not support any other browsers. Furthermore, the collection of apps available on Windows is quite limited, especially as compared to the apps available for Android and Apple.

The information for the detailed table about the two phones has been taken from the LG website, the Nokia website, techradar.com, and GSMArena.com.
