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

Ratings in depth There has never been a better time to be shopping in the middle or low end of the smartphone market. Whereas a few years ago any device at this level would be very slow, have a tiny screen, a very poor camera and weak battery life, LG...

The LG G2 Mini has landed. But does this small smartphone have enough big ideas?

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

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...

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...

LG G2 Mini review

 

HANDS ON REVIEW: LG shrinks the G2 into a smaller 4.7in smartphone, but also reduces the specifications. Does it make it less of a phone as a result?

With no official price yet either, we think LG will have to make it significantly cheaper than the G2 in order to keep it in consideration.

Обзор смартфона LG G2 mini (D618)

 

Практически мини-версия флагманского смартфона компании LG – G2

Компания LG пошла на поводу моды и назвала свой новый девайс с приставкой mini. Думаю, из обзора стало понятно, что от флагманской модели здесь осталось крайне мало: похожий внешний вид, некоторые элементы управления и фирменная оболочка. С другой...
