I have actually been considering the LG Optimus 7 over the Samsung Omnia 7 due to the great software features of the LG device (panorama, DLNA support etc).

This comparison of video quality for the two handsets, published by DieKoffieMan on Youtube, has however completely changed my mind.

The Optimus 7 appears to handle light much more poorly, and suffer extreme compression artefacts and appear to add red hues to the video.

What do our readers think of the picture quality on the comparison? Let us know below.

After the break, another video by DieKoffieMan of the camera settings, which appear pretty extensive on the LG, apparently to no good effect.

Edit: After the break also Jonathan has sent us a video, available on YouTube, taken in 720p on the LG Optimus 7.  While he holds it up as a better example of the camera in action, it feels to be that the video remains overcompressed, and the framerate appears low also.

Do our readers agree? Let us know below.

LG Optimus 7 alone.
