REVIEW LG G2 Mini

LG G2 Mini is, as its name suggests, the version of the LG G2 model in a much smaller size than its big brother and in a more affordable price that meet all possible demands of smartphones. On sale from April 14.

Processor:

Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 with GPU Adreno 305.

Snapdragon is the platform for tablets, smartphones, smartbook devices and smartwatches created by mobile technology company Qualcomm. The 1.2 GHz represent a wave amplitude within the acceptable limits for this type of Mini model, while the quad-core processor is reflected in the ability of processes that it can perform in a given time. Here, it performes four times more processes than a single-core processor, and that makes it very powerful. It also has GPU Adreno 305 for videogames with good graphics, especially remarkable for those in 3D.

Display:

IPS LCD 4.7 inches capacitive touchscreen and a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels with 16M colors.

It is a mini Smartphone with a big screen, almost 5 pixels screen, albeit with a lower resolution in comparison. It has a capacitive touch sensor for easy handling.

Storage:

8 GB, expandable up to 32 GB with MicroSD card.

Storage or internal memory is in terms of PC what we know as hard drive. In this case the 8 GB storage with possibility to expand up to 64GB by adding a microSD card represent an acceptable internal memory.

RAM:

1 GB.

In RAM are loaded all the instructions that processor executes, so the more GB you have the better. In this case LG G2 Mini RAM isn’t very spectacular.

Camera:

It features 8 megapixel rear camera with resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels and 1.3 megapixel front camera.

LG G2 Mini camera is quite similar in terms of size to the concurrence; however it stands out for its features: autofocus, LED flash, geo-tagging, face detection, panoramic photos, HDR photography equipment, video 1080p in rear camera and 720p on the front.

Connectivity:

4G, NFC, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/ b/ g/ n/ ac, Bluetooth 4.

These are all the types of connections it supports. 4G indicates that this mobile uses a system and a fourth-generation network, converging wired and wireless networks, including Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. With One-Touch you can enjoy and share on other devices what you want from your Tablet.

In addition to these features, LG G2 Mini has a 129.6 x 66 x 9.8 size; it’s water-resistant and dustproof; it is a bit lighter than competing models (121g); it has a 2440mAh battery; FM radio and features the Google Android OS 4.4.2 KitKat.

In short, LG G2 Mini is a great success as a lowcost terminal of its flagship LG G2 and in terms of screen change is almost imperceptible.
