LG G2 and MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 - Mini Review


We took a quick look at the G2 at the announcement event, now we have our hands on a G2 and have been putting it through its paces, benchmarking it, and running battery life tests on it for a little under a week and wanted to share some thoughts.

I've been using the G2 as my daily since getting it, and have been really quite impressed with the device. LG's battery size is large, and the battery life tests back up the subjectively long longevity that I've noticed. Obviously the process...

LG G2 mini Review


After Samsung and HTC, LG is hopping on the “mini” bandwagon, too. The G2 mini, however, is too radical a departure from the specs and performance of the G2, with a 4.7” 540x960 pixels display, a basic Snapdragon 400 processor, and an 8 MP camera, all...

4.7” display in a fairly palm-friendly chassis ; IR blaster lets you control the TV with your phone ; The video player runs every major format

Expensive for the specs sheet and the subpar performance ; Poor call quality ; Soft and underexposed pictures and video

So, has LG managed to make an appealing midrange proposition with the G2 mini? At the suggested 350 USD or EUR price tag we'd have to say no. What should be a scaled-down version of the excellent G2, turns out to be lacking on many important counts....

LG G2 mini hands-on review


A few month after launching the impressive G2 smartphone, LG has followed the trend of launching a smaller and cheaper version at MWC. The price hasn't been announced yet but the smartphone will no doubt be more affordable than its bigger brother –...

The G2 mini is almost exactly what you'd expect it to be. A smaller and lower spec version of the flagship G2. The phone looks and feels nice but we're waiting for the price. A key competitor is the Xperia Z1 Compact which is a mini version without the...

Hands-on at MWC 2014: LG's not so mini 'mini' falls short of expectation

The LG G2 mini is a handset that could have, and should have wowed. Instead I’ve been left frustrated with yet another leading manufacturer that has failed to make a truly representative flagship spinoff at a size that is appealing to the masses. After...

MWC 2014: LG G2 Mini hands-on review - latecomer to the mini party


Scaling down their flagship smartphones has paid dividends for the likes of Samsung and Sony, and now LG is getting in on the act with the launch of the LG G2 Mini.

LG G2 mini preview


The LG G2 mini has been shown off with a 4.7 inch qHD display and varying camera and CPU versions, depending on region.

The G2 mini will also ship with KnockCode, LG’s funky newsecurity method. We don’t see this being a big selling factor, but it’s atleast a way that LG can differentiate itself from the mid-range competition.
