LG showcases lil' G2 Mini for MWC (hands-on)

 

Although it bears the same "G2" name as its big brother, the LG G2 Mini is watered down in every respect. Its screen has a disappointingly low resolution, its processor doesn't put up much of a fight and it has an 8- rather than 13-megapixel camera....

The LG G2 Mini is more affordable than its flagship namesake, it has good battery life and a decent camera

It has a lower resolution screen than the Motorola Moto G (which costs less than half the price) and its processor doesn't provide much power

LG G2 Mini ( black)

 

The LG G2 seriously impressed the whole CNET team with its brilliant screen, its lightning fast processor and its great camera. As nearly all of its rivals have done, LG has paired its flagship with a smaller version, for those not willing to shove a...

LG G2 mini review: Big mini

 

With the new season well under way, the LG G2 mini is trying to have the last word in the compact class just like the original did last year at the high end. With the same design as the flagship (slim bezel, rear buttons and such) and the biggest...

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support ; Quad-band 3G with HSPA; Optional Penta-band LTE cat4 ; 4.7" 16M-color qHD (960 x 540) IPS LCD, Gorilla Glass 2 display protection ; Android OS v4.4.2 KitKat; LG Optimus UI ; Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 CPU, 1 GB RAM,...

Screen could've used some extra resolution at that size ; Snapdragon 400 is blatantly midrange stuff ; Below average loudspeaker performance ; No ambient light sensor ; Confusingly comes in different versions with different internal hardware

The LG G2 mini is lucky to share lots of DNA with a great smartphone - and we cannot blame LG for focusing on the outside, and going for budget-grade internals. After all, a super mini along the lines of the Xperia Z1 Compact would've been pointless...

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 Review: The Biggest Mini Phone

 

The LG G2 Mini is among the biggest compact versions of a flagship on the market today. On paper, its specs have been reduced in every aspect compared to the bigger LG G2, and its display is neither as sharp nor as rich thanks to its lowered...

Supreme performance for a midrange device, Great battery life, Solid rear camera, Ergonomic design

Low display resolution, Small storage space, Huge dimensions for a “mini” flagship

LG G2 Mini review

 

The LG G2's little sibling

Amazing battery life ; Excellent build quality ; MicroSD expansion slot

Low resolution screen ; Slightly too expensive ; Some gimmicky software

Ultimately it is hard to recommend the G2 Mini over something like the Motorola Moto G, which has a superior screen, similar performance and very good battery life. Only the camera on the LG device is clearly better.

LG G2 mini pictures and hands-on

 

The LG G2 mini might be called mini, but for many it is anything but when you look at the specs. That's okay though, because surprisingly, as if it was a tardis, the phone doesn't actually feel that big in the hand. That's mainly because of the...

LG G2 Mini review: Hands-on

 

Does this mid- range scaled-down budget smartphone have the power to take on the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact? Read the LG G2 Mini hands on review.

It might be pocket-sized but that doesn't mean the LG G2 Mini shouldn't pack a punch. So while there's a strong physical resemblance to the G2 we'd like to have seen a little more of the G2's power. But as ever, a lot will depend on the price tag and...

LG G2 mini review

 

As is typical, the LG G2 mini has come along a number of months after its bigger brother. However, because the LG G3 is about to launch, the LG G2 has come down in price significantly. You can get it for £279 at the time of writing which means the G2...

The G2 mini is almost exactly what you'd expect it to be. A smaller of the flagship G2 but the build quality and specs take a serious dive. The saving grace is a decent camera but it's worth paying the extra for the now heavily reduced G2. If your...
