LG K7 Hands-On : First Impressions


LG announced two new smartphones in the K Series at CES 2016 – the K10 and the K7 which have advanced camera features. The K07 is the lower end variant among the two and we went hands on with the device at the event and here are our impressions.


Design wise, the K7 too follows the same pebble inspired design language followed by the K10. The main difference is that the K7 is smaller and easier to handle but is a tad bit thicker than the K10. The display is smaller too and that is one of the main reasons for its smaller footprint.


The display is a 5″ one with 854×480 pixels resolution with on-cell touch technology on the 3G variant and in-cell touch technology on the 4G LTE variant. The 4G LTE variant is powered by a 1.1GHz quad core processor while the 3G variant gets a 1.3GHz quad core processor.


There is one version that comes with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage while the 8GB storage model comes with 1GB of RAM. It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box.


The main camera is an 8 Megapixel or 5 Megapixel unit while the front facing camera is a 5 Megapixel unit. The phone comes with features like Gesture Shot and Gesture Interval Shot for easier selfies. Gesture Shot allows users to take photos simply by raising an open hand in front of the lens and then clenching it into a fist. Closing one’s hand twice automatically leads to the Gesture Interval Shot and will capture four consecutive photos. There is also a flash for the selfie camera up front.
