A new Android 4.0 device was released into the UK market recently, the LG Optimus L7. Although the LG Optimus L7 will feature a 4.3-inch screen and the latest Android OS from Google (NASDAQ:GOOG), it will have to deal with the upcoming release of the Samsung Galaxy SIII, which was unveiled recently during an event held in London.
The design of the latest smartphone from LG was considered sleek and appealing by some observers following its introduction during the Mobile World Congress that was held in Barcelona. The Android 4.0 or the Ice Cream Sandwich Android of the LG Optimus L7 may also appeal to users that are looking for a device that offers the latest version of the Android OS.
However it appears that the LG Optimus L7 will have to deal with recent smartphone offerings that offer more power than what the device can offer.
The 1GHz single-core processor of the LG Optimus L7 is not quite comparable to the 1.4GHz quad-core processor that is offered by the Samsung Galaxy SIII.
However if users are content with a modest processor for the device that they want to own and are not looking for a device that facilitates playing graphics-intensive games. The LG Optimus L7 will be a suitable selection for such consumers who do not normally use their devices for memory-intensive tasks.
However it should also be important to take note that the processor of the LG Optimus L7 may lack the power to handle any updates for the Android operating system. This may be a significant factor for users who may not want to change smartphones whenever a new Android update will be released by Google.
The LG Optimus L7 also comes with a five-megapixel camera and is also only 8.7 millimeters thick, which is similar to the thickness of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy SIII.
