Reviews for the LG G2 Mini

82% LG G2 Mini Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
In a mini-frenzy. The smaller version of the giant high-end smartphone finally fits in anyone's pocket and houses many of the same hardware components as the larger flagship model. But the LG G2 Mini can't fill its big brother's shoes.

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. This doesn't tell the whole story though, as the G2 Mini is a very nice device to use and has a compelling overall proposition. It just lacks a few key refinements and could do with either packing a higher resolution screen or a lower price to really be a standout device.

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 budget won't stretch, check out the Sony Xperia M2.

LG G2 Mini review: Hands-on
Source: T3 English
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 if you're looking for a more compact handset, with a decent Android operating system and a wide range of top-end software tricks then the LG G2 Mini could be a solid option.

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 first use I would say that, if you can afford to, don’t wait for the mini to hit stores, splash out on the LG G2 now instead.
