Reviews for the LG K7

76.6% LG K7 Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Social media with hurdles. With the K7, LG promises outstanding selfie-capability at an affordable price point. The 5-inch Android smartphone does many things right, but unfortunately doesn't quite deliver on LG's main promise.

The LG K7 is one of the most affordable phones you can get on T-Mobile, but many more powerful options are available unlocked for similar or less money.

60% LG's K10 and K7: Glossy Pebbles
Source: Techtree.com English
LG's interface has become simpler and less cartoonish over the years and it doesn't introduce any lag as such on the K10, but at the same time, this is no blazing fast phone. LG says the glossy pebble design is meant to appeal to young people but yet, the performance on the phone isn't fast enough to satisfy the content-hungry gaming youngster.

60% LG K7 LTE Review
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The LG K7 LTE feels out of place in today's cut-throat budget smartphone segment. The good battery life and design aside, it falls short on pretty much every count. Then there's the price - at Rs. 9,500, it's simply too expensive to even consider when you have phones like the Lenovo Vibe K5 Plus, Coolpad Note 3, and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, all of which perform better and are less expensive.

LG K7 LTE Review
Source: Fone Arena English
To sum up, the K7 LTE is a phone that offers good build quality and performs well. However, the display is just FWVGA, which is not impressive. For a price of Rs 9,500, the display should have been at least 720p. The rear camera is also just 5MP, whereas other phones in this price range offer 8MP or 13MP rear camera. All in all, the K7 LTE does fail to justify its price tag with low specifications.
