    About the Phone

    The LG K7i has an innovation that will make you laugh if not blow your mind. However, it is effective and is the only positive of the phone. It has a few pros and cons:

    Pros

    • The phone comes with a textured back and a distinct design that sets it apart for the rest of its competitors.
    • It is lightweight.
    • The K7i comes with a unique Mosquito Away technology.

    Cons

    • The phone does not have a fingerprint scanner.
    • The K7i has a mediocre display, which is not sharp enough.
    • The K7i has a weak processor which can make the phone slow.
    • It does not have a good battery, and the Mosquito Away app tends to drain the battery a lot.
    • The cameras on this phone are just average, and it does not come with a dual-camera setup on its rear.

    The LG K7i is a poorly-made phone with no features going in favour of it. It is incapable of holding its own in the competitive market with only a single feature standing out – the Mosquito Away feature. If you are in a mosquito-prone area, this phone might help but is not recommended.

    A delightful innovation for the people in the tropical areas, the LG K7i has a unique technology called Mosquito Away. Priced at Rs. 5,195, while the innovation is humorously appreciable, the phone has extremely dated specifications making the phone miserable.

    With a small battery, a weak processor and a dated display, the LG K7i turns out to be quite an ill-customized phone. It is not recommended for people unless you want a secondary phone and wants to test out its mosquito-repellent qualities.

    The LG K7i has the dimensions of about 144.70 x 72.60 x 8.10mm and is about 8.1 inches thick. It has a textured back, which is quite grippy, but on the rear-end, the phone has a thin top which grows at the bottom, because of the feature of Mosquito Away technology. At the back, just wheeler the battery is located, the phone holds a grille which releases ultrasonic sound waves which cannot be heard by humans but can keep mosquitoes away. It is the only innovation that this entry-level phone brings to the smartphone universe. Otherwise, the phone is quite lightweight at 138 grams and is comfortable to hold. The phone is ergonomic and has the power button on the rear end under the camera, but it does not double into a fingerprint scanner. The phone does not have a fingerprint scanner.

    LG K7i arrives with a 5-inch touchscreen display which has a resolution of 480×854 pixels. The screen is inferior, and the colours are not punchy. They appear washed out. The brightness does not go very high, either. While indoors, you can expect moderate legibility, outdoor legibility drops terribly. In the end, from the display point of view, the phone is not very well thought-out.

    The LG K7i gets its power from a 1.1GHz quad-core processor. It has just a 2 GB RAM and even as an entry-level processor; it is inadequate. The phone will lag when intensive tasks are done in it. Plus, multitasking is not its forte; it will enter the slowdown mode if pushed. This phone will not run high-tier games as it will falter in it. There will be many frames drops present too.

     

    In case of the cameras, the phone comes with a single 8MP camera on its rear panel and a front 5MP camera. The focus on the rear camera does lag, and the pictures have a 1-second delay before the processed image comes out. The details are not well when clicked in indoors with the colours being washed out. The dynamic range is also not very good for this phone. For the selfie camera, the indoor shots are inferior with the image becoming completely dark. In ideal light conditions, you get passable selfies.

     

    The LG K7i gets its fuel from a 2,500mAh non-removable battery. It is a small battery, and on top of that the mosquito repellent feature, if activated, will drain a lot of battery. It might barely make through an entire day with moderate use, but with light use, it might be able to last for a whole day.

    The LG K7i is an inferior phone. While it does have a strange innovation suitable for A tropical country like India, it has inferior specifications and does not work on any of its internals. Plus, the price does not warrant the purchase, as there are better competitors in the market who would deliver better performance in this case. It is not a recommended phone – even if you are someone living in a mosquito-prone area.
