In terms of design, it is almost the same as that of the Optimus 7, with the main difference being the slide-out QWERTY keyboard and an overall smaller display. Even still, the 3.5 inch TFT Touchscreen does well to provide a pretty average resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The colours also appear quite vibrant, thanks to the 16 M colour display.
Multimedia features are no different from the Optimus 7. There’s a 5 Mega Pixel Camera with Autofocus and is accompanied by a LED Flash. Video Recording is also supported at 720p HD.
Like the Optimus 7, the LG Optimus 7Q also runs the Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 7 Operating System. It features a new User Interface and supports integration of Xbox Live. There is also support for Office Apps, and Social Networking services.
Besides all this, LG has included its DLNA-based Play To application, voice-to-text support on the phone and its ScanSearch augmented reality software.
Like all WP7 handsets released so far, the Optimus 7Q lacks a microSD card slot for extra memory and users will have to suffice with the inbuilt 16 GB internal memory.
Connectivity features on the phone are pretty decent with Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, GPS and 3G(HSDPA/HSUPA).
Like the Optimus 7, the Optimus 7Q will also have a standard Li-Ion 1500 mAh Battery. Hence the battery life should not differ much between the two models.
The smartphone market is being rapidly flooded with Window Phone 7 devices as many manufacturers have embraced the release of the operating system. Unlike the other Windows Phone 7 devices, the LG Optimus 7Q is much more affordable, hence it looks to be more successful in the market, especially considering the many phone deals that are on offer.
