LG GD880 Mini review

 

Technically it isn't one, but the LG GD880 Mini has a number of smartphone-like features, including multitouch technology, over-the-air synchronisation and a variety of social connectivity features wrapped up in an attractive and stylish casing. It's a...

The LG GD880 Mini mobile phone certainly looks attractive and possesses a unique design, but it is ultimately let down by sluggish, limited software.

Despite it's pocket-friendly dimensions (102mm x 48mm x 11mm) the GD800 LG Mini packs plenty of punch. The LG GD800 features a 3.2-inch touchscreen display with a widescreen aspect ratio (16:9) and a…

It's not a smartphone, but LG's Mini (GD880) has a number of smartphone-like features including multitouch technology

Brushed metal design, unique look and feel, excellent display, S-Class interface is visually appealing, Twitter and Facebook apps

LG GD880 Mini review: Going minimalist

 

The LG GD880 Mini is a looker. Quite the way to start really, but the Mini isn't all about looks. From the hardware design through the high-res screen to the software – everything was crafted by skillful hands. Beauty is function in design – nothing is...

Quad-band GSM support and dual-band 3G ; 7.2Mbps HDSPA and 2Mbps HSUPA ; 3.2" 256K-color TFT capacitive touchscreen display of WVGA (480x854 pixels) resolution; multi-touch support, scratch resistant surface ; Latest S-Class UI; Flash and HTML5 support...

Laggy software ; Display has poor sunlight legibility ; Flash and HTML5 support not good enough for watching videos ; Below-par audio quality ; GPS functionality is left bare, not even Google Maps preinstalled

The LG GD880, despite its name, is not a small phone, in the sense of some recent minis (*cough*X10mini*cough*). It is darn small next to the LG BL40 New Chocolate, but by no means tiny

LG Mini GD880 Review

 

The LG Mini GD880 is a handset that, more than anything else, relies on overall appeal. This does not mean it lacks cool features such as WebKit browser and Xvid video playback support. And if this sounds way too good to be true...

LG Mini (GD880) mobile phone review

 

Boasting a 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, 7.2Mbps HSDPA connectivity and an FM radio, you could be forgiven for thinking LG's latest flagship handset, the LG Mini (GD880), is a smartphone.

Brushed metal design ; unique look and feel ; excellent display ; S-Class interface is visually appealing ; Twitter and Facebook apps

Mediocre Web browser ; Sharp edges can dig into your hands/pocket ; Limited widgets ; Sluggish performance

LG's Mini (GD880) mobile phone certainly looks attractive and possesses a unique design, but it is ultimately let down by sluggish, limited software.

LG Mini GD880

 

The LG Mini is a small and thin phone that can help you stay connected with its social networking applications and instant e-mail access. Unfortunately, it is a bit slow and limited when compared to other phones using a different operating system.

Small and light; Bright and crisp display; Social networking service; Neat interface

Sluggish; Not a lot of applications available; Small virtual QWERTY keys; Camera missing a flash
