Winners of LG Optimus 7 competition announced

Last month Pocket-lint teamed up with LG to bring five lucky readers the chance of winning a LG Optimus Windows Phone 7 handset.

The response was phenomenal, and we're now pleased to announce the winners, who'll be able to take advantage of the phone's DLNA connectivity, 5-megapixel autofocus camera, ScanSearch AR viewer and 3.8-inch 800 x 480 pixel resolution display.

So without further ado, it's congratulations to:

Andy from Wokingham

Mark from Whickham

Barry from Stoke-on-Trent

Philip from Kenilworth

Julian from New Mills

Pocket-lint and LG would like to thank all those who entered the competition. And if you didn't win, take a look at our full review and perhaps start thinking about saving those pennies.

And here's what some of you said when we asked what you thought:

“Got good experiences with LG phones, and the new Optimus 7 looks very promising. The technical specifications are good and not least the storage capacity is impressive.  The battery life is another important factor for me, and it seems that the battery is larger than the competitors.”

“LG have been impressing me more and more recently, with their handsets for both android and win 7 being the ones i would pick, the designs are understated, they haven't played with them too much, they just do what they are meant to do, and I like that!    Also, the 1500mah battery is a winner, decent size for the modern demands.”

“I would choose the LG Optimus 7 as I believe that the handset has a good, solid hardware spec.  Also I believe that they could bring something unique to the Windows Phone 7 platform and deliver value for money as they seek to increase their share of the smartphone market. Finally, it would be great to have a handset that has DNLA connectivity as I'm a multimedia buff and spend a lot of time taking pictures, recording videos etc.”

“Big fan already of LG products - Television, monitor, phone already owned so a nice shiny windows 7 phone would be the icing on the cake!”

“The LG Optimus 7 is a phone that is advance and would provide me with the ability to stay in touch with friends and family easily.  With its WP7 interface and added features I would have everything I need to do everything everywhere.”

“The LG Optimus 7 is a truly beautiful phone. Sleek, elegant and attractive. An excellent alternative to the common iphones and blackberries that everybody seems to have nowadays. I would like to get this phone for Christmas as it would set me aside of everybody else. I ticks all my boxes, and features I particularly love are the intuitive interface, xbox live integration and the hubs feature. It has everything I could ask for in my perfect phone. Xxx”

“The LG Optimus 7 gets the added bonus of DLNA connectivity. Called Play To"

“The marriage of LG with Windows 7 is  match made in geek heaven.”

“This is a no- brainer!!  The LG Optimus 7 has all the fantastic features of a Windows Phone 7 handset - great processor, masses of memory with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.  AND guess what - it has DLNA connectivity.  Yep I could view all my videos, music and pics around my home. It has a superb camera - only one I know that supports AR functionality!  Hey there's more!  GPS functionality and great battery life!  Father Christmas - please bring me an LG Optimus 7, and the mince pies are on me!!”

“LG, name says it all for me. Quality in the palm of your hand.”

“I just love the look of the LG Optimus 7 and it has so many great functions making it virtually a pocket entertainment system. This would save me so much bagspace having all my gadgets in one.”
