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 primary camera can record videos at 720p resolution with 30fps frame rate, which is quite a decent video resolution. 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. The device also has an exterior Quick Button that provides quick access to the user’s favorite features and apps.

LG has recently added a new phone series to its line-up. Following the original LG Optimus L series, the new phones include LG Optimus L3 II, LG Optimus L5 II and LG Optimus L7 II. The LG Optimus L5 II and its counter part LG Optimus L5 II Dual are two entry-level smartphones by the company. Although review websites say that the company has managed another miss, many users disagree and have enjoyed the phone specifically because of its cheap price.

The LG Optimus L5 II and L5 II Dual are quite similar to each other but differ in certain places, including looks. The Optimus L5 II has a bar format that has an oval hardware Home button on the front nestled right under the screen. This button is flanked by the Menu and Back capacitive buttons. The Optimus L5 II Dual, however, has four capacitive buttons Back, Home, Menu and the last button allows switching between the two SIM cards. The small design of both the phones is quite comfortable to hold and is also to use only with one hand. The buttons are also placed to make the device user friendly.

The power button is placed on the right side of the device, while the left side houses the volume rocker and a customizable button that is initially customized to Quick Note. The 3.5 mm jack is on the top of the device, while the USB charging port is on the bottom. The back of the device has the camera on the left side along with the LED flash on the bottom of it. The loudspeaker grille can be found on the bottom right corner. The company has given the back a ‘fake’ metallic look that can be passed of for a metallic back from far away. However, the back is made of plastic and has a little cheap feeling to it. The hardware Home button on the L5 II has LED behind it that illuminates while charging and also lights up different colors for different notifications.

The device comes with a 4-inch True IPS LCD capacitive touch screen that offers around 233 ppi pixel density. The screen has decent resolution and clarity for the price. The phone is quite light and weighs around 103 grams for both models. Both the models come with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out of the box and have been customized by Optimus 3.0 UI. The major difference between the two devices is the L5 II Dual’s ability to support dual SIM cards.

Both the devices are powered by 1 GHz single core processor, that results in lag if playing high-res demanding games. It also offers 512 MB RAM. The phones come with 4 GB internal storage capacity, of which only 1.75 GB is available to the user but, it can be expanded by 32 GB using a microSD card. The 1.75 GB still results in very less memory as Jelly Bean does not allow users to shift apps to the SD card. Both the devices come only with a 5 MP primary camera with a LED flash. The camera offers basic features such as geo-tagging, shot modes and a Cheese Shutter (that takes a photo when users say cheese). The camera also have VGA video taking capability.

The phone is powered by a removable Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery, which the company touts provides almost 10 hours of talktime on 3G network. The company has also provided with 50 GB of cloud storage and L5 II Dual offers a very cool feature known as On Screen Phone. This feature allows the phone to connect to a computer using USB or Wi-Fi, the user can then completely control the phone using the mouse and the keyboard. The application comes in the form of the phone on the screen and the user can also control the volume as well as the power buttons. The feature is a benefit for people that work on their computers continuously.
