LG G2 mini hands-on

The second-generation LG G family of smartphones is now complete with the launch of the G2 mini. The phone keeps the familiar design characteristics of the G2, which includes the rear-mounted controls as well as extra thin bezels.

The LG G2 mini packs a 4.7″ IPS LCD display, which LG claims takes 71% of the phone’s surface. Unfortunately, it’s only qHD resolution, which results in a pixel density of 234 ppi leaving it behind its 720p rivals. The back holds the volume rocker and the Power/Lock key located in the middle. Above them lies the 8MP snapper with LED flash.

The polycarbonate back cover is easy to remove and reveals the 2,440mAh battery as well as the microSD card slot on top of the SIM card slot. To give you a better idea of just how compact the G2 mini is, check it out compared to the HTC One mini. Just as a reminder, the latter packs a much smaller 4.3″ display.

The LG G2 mini is powered by a Snadpragon 400 chipset with 1.2GHz quad-core CPU and 1GB of RAM. It runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat with the latest Optimus UI skin on top. LG has given it a lot of customization options and extra features, chief among which is Knock Code and QSlide apps.
