If you ask me, LG made a *big* mistake by NOT releasing this phone in the U.S. They released the LG Quantum instead, which is very
ugly, because it was differentiated from the other WP7 devices by it's physical keyboard. By doing so, they've continued the trend of thinking that LG is a bottom-tier brand that can't make nice/good phones. The LG Optimus 7 says otherwise, but most in the U.S. don't even know it exists. Sad
The Optimus 7 looks great, feels great, and it among the sturdiest of phones I've ever used. Is it massively set apart from other phones? No, not really -- but clean design and superb build quality make it top-notch in my book!
