LG Optimus F7 leaked for Boost Mobile sporting 4G LTE, beefy 2,540mAh battery, and lots more


Thursday 11th of April 2013 / phandroid.com
It was back at Mobile World Congress we gave you guys a quick hands-on with the LG Optimus F7. The device featured largely the same high-end specs from yesteryear’s LG Optimus G, only it swapped the quad-core S4 for the dual-core variety. Apparently, this small change was enough to push the device into LG’s mid-range lineup for 2013, offering a premium smartphone only at a lower cost.The boys at @Evleaks have secured themselves an official press shot of the LG Optimus F7, this time dawning Sprint’s software branding, due for a release on sister carrier, Boost Mobile, a little later on in the year. As a quick refresher, here’s what we’re looking in terms of hardware in the F7:Optimus F7 Specs:Operating System: Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2Processor: 1.5 GHz Dual-CoreDisplay: 4.7-inch True HD IPS (312 ppi)Size: 131.7 x 68.2 x 9.6mmMemory: 8 GB / 2 GB RAM /microSD (up to 32GB)Camera: 8.0 MP AF / 1.3 MPBattery: 2,540mAhThere’s a lot here to love, especially that hefty 2,540mAh battery (which, if I’m not mistaken is also removable) and micro SD slot.

How can I check for updates for my LG?Q: General Android phone FAQ's?A: Here is a thread on general Android Phone FAQ'sQ: How can I improve my battery life? A: Smartphones operate on a sort of spectrum. On one end you could put battery life, on the other end all those options like wifi/3g/sync (among other things). If you want great battery life you can't have those on all the time. If you want those on all the time, you won't get great battery life. It is best to find the compromise that works best for you and what you want most out of your phone.Here are a couple of things that you could consider - adjust the screen brightness, do not use live wallpapers, switch off networks when not in use (WIFI, Bluetooth, GPS), adjust update intervals for widgets (do you really need twitter/facebook notifications every half hour?).

Optimus f7 issues


Friday 13th of December 2013 / androidforums.com
I've had this phone for about a week. I uninstalled the bloatware from boost (app stubs, boost air, boost app finder and the like) however after a few hours or even days it re-installs it and changes my home screen settings back to default. I downloaded Apex Launcher so that seems to protect most of my home screen settings now but the boost apps change my wall paper. This is very annoying. Is any one else having the same issue? If so how did you over come it? Another issue is the sound. There seems to be no way to adjust the in-call volume when on speaker. Is there an app out there to resolve it or is it a LG software issue?Thanks!
