I've got the LG Optimus 7 and I'm very pleased with the choice. There were a number of factors that decided this handset for me over the Samsung:
- Memory - I knew I wanted to watch video and listen to music a lot on my phone and 16GB will go a long way. The Focus in the UK, as I understand it, doesn't have the memory expansion slot.
- PlayTo application - I may not get a lot of use out of it, but the ability to connect to a Wi-Fi network and stream photos, music and video from my phone to a compatible system is sweet!
- Video out - something that hasn't really been talked about much but it appears to be possible to buy a special microUSB cable that provides audio and composite video output. Could help me replace my Archos.
I like the size of the handset - something that was picked up on in the Anandtech review. I have previously used the HTC HD2 and found it to be a little bit too big for me to comfortably hold.
I've not found the LCD display to be an issue. I have watched several TV programme recordings on the phone now and I love the quality of the display.
I agree with the comments about the panoramic photo app - it seems to be a nice implementation (automatically taking subsequent shots as you move the camera) but the end result is not of a very high quality.
All in all, though, I am happy with the choice I've made. It will be interesting to see what the handset market is like in 18 months when my contract is due for renewal.
