Well,don’t expect too much… since LG officially announced that the Optimus 7 will not receive the WP7.8 update, my device should not expect any special care apart from being in good shape to serve my daily needs. I wasn’t really anxious to receive the WP7.8 update, but still I was frustrated by the lack of support for this device from LG…this will affect my future purchases of course.
Apart from that, I recently noticed that the battery life is sometimes awfully short. Sometimes, it will not even hold for more than some hours before the mobile shuts off, which is pretty annoying, especially if you are not close to a power source (which was the case some days ago). Therefore, I decided to make myself (and Optimus 7) a gift and buy a brand new battery, hoping that this will solve the problem. The battery was ordered about a week ago via Ebay, arrived just yesterday and will be tested in the next days to see how things will go with battery life.
It is rated at 2,430 mAh, which is a significant difference compared to the 1,500mAh of the original LG battery, but as they say “size does not matter”… only time will tell if this minor upgrade will be substantial for the daily usage of my mobile phone.
