US Cellular announces LG Optimus F7 for $99 on-contract

A solid mid-range offering to expand U.S. Cellular's LTE device selectionLG Optimus F7

LG is expanding the reach of its latest mid-range device, the Optimus F7, stateside as it becomes available today on U.S. Cellular for $99 on-contract. This Android 4.1 device is packing some pretty solid specs for the price, with a 4.7-inch 720x1280 display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage (with SDcard support), 8MP camera on back and very sizeable 2540mAh battery. Being a recent U.S. Cellular device it naturally has LTE support, alongside standard CDMA 3G radios. On the software side the Optimus F7 has many of LG's latest custom software tweaks such as QSlide multi-windowing, QuickMemo and VuTalk which were previously reserved to its high-end devices.

We came away generally impressed with the style and build quality back when we took a look at an international version of the Optimus F7, and the U.S. Cellular version will likely meet that expectation. Customers picking up the device on a new 2-year contract can expect to pay $99 for it, and those upgrading out of cycle will spend a full $399, barring any changes in regional pricing in your area.

  • That's a whole lot of "Meh"...
  • What's "Meh" about it? It has decent specs and LTE. Not everyone wants the bleeding edge of hardware, but still wants LTE to see those Facebook pics ASAP.
  • I am looking for that decision to be made for Sony Xperia Z. But it's something costly for me. Regards,
  • Damn it. I just want a decent mid-range phone with a 4.3 inch screen that I can use in the U.S on T-Mobile. 4.7 inch is too big for me to use comfortably.
    I guess I could just get used to having a 4.5 inch screen and go the the L9.
  • HTC One S?
