The LG G2 mini is a smaller version of the powerful G2 and will be positioned as a budget phone in the mini class. This phone is definitely down in specs from its bigger brother the G2 but the specs are still good enough for this phone to compete in the mini range. This phone will be available on contract or sim free and the sim free version can be purchased from http://www.simfreephonesuk.co.uk/lg-g2-mini-sim-free at reasonable prices.
This phone will come with a eight megapixel camera in the UK marketplace which is a shame as other regions will be getting thirteen megapixels, I have no idea why LG is doing that but it looks like the UK loses out on that decision. The front facing camera is a let down and is only 1.3 megapixels but it does record in 720p HD which is a bonus. The rear camera gives you full 1080p HD recording. The internal storage is a bit of a letdown as you only get 8 GB.
The LG G2 mini is a good size for a mini phone and the specs for that are 129.6 x 66.0 x 9.8mm. The G2 mini currently has the largest display screen in the mini market and you get a 4.7 inch display screen. This phone feels very well put together, it feels solid whilst feeling like the same time and it anyways 121g.
As far as the colour options go there are four which are: Titan Black, Lunar White, Red and Gold. The phone looks really good in all of these colours and they really suit the design of the phone.
Like I mentioned earlier the display screen is a good size but when it comes to display resolution some may be left a little bit disappointed as people are used to getting full HD or even 720p HD as standard these days on a phone at this price. But the LG G2 mini doesn’t even have HD, it has 540 x 960 pixels, 234 ppi pixel density which is quite disappointing. At the very least LG should have put 720p HD but sadly LG have really skimped in the wrong place.
The G2 Mini has 2,440mAh removable battery. Usage times are average and you will get a days use out of it before charges required. The processor and RAM are the standard you expect from a phone at this price. You get a quad core 1.2 GHz processor with 1 GB RAM which is more than enough to smoothly run the android operating system and various other apps. This phone has no problems running multiple tasks at once.
This is a pocket sized phone and feels good in hand. There is a strong resemblance to the bigger and more powerful G2 but unfortunately the G2 mini doesn’t have the G2’s power.
What really would have made this phone good is if it had a little bit of the G2’s power which would of put this phone right up there with some of the best mini phones. So all in all it’s not bad phone, the specs are good but not great and the screen is a huge letdown.
