That's kind of a lack luster. For the same size, I'd go with Xperia Z1 Compact or Moto X. I wouldn't get it unless you must have a VoLTE device.

Pixel density on this one not too good and 8gb internal storage is going to be very limited. I can imagine LG firmware being atleast 2-3GB, you'll probably get 4.5GB of free space. That Tegra 4 GPU isn't going to be very useful when you try to install a big game that doesn't install on external storage.

I would even consider the Moto G 16gb over this, aside from the camera.

Totally agree thanks to HTC, Samsung and now LG the moniker 'Mini' stands for cheap profiteering from a popular product.
No longer interested unless it has Compact in the name. Thanks Sony for providing what people really want, a class leading 'full' spec phone in a compact package.

Well looks like they took the Samsung route(no surprise there) Instead of the Sony route.

It's actually neither. Samsung would have lower spec

your hate is showing.

Your one to talk.

NoNexus says:

I don't hate any phone or company. Not one since the N4 came out.

Certain things suck, but overall every flagship was good last year.

MERCDROID says:

To be fair, brother, a quick look at the specs sheet does indeed reflect that the s4 mini is the lowest spec'd of the three.

NoNexus says:

True it was a dog, but it is also a year old. Certainly the worst of last year.

Amir47 says:

7 months old. came out in July 2013.

Amir47 says:

LOL how?
It's the truth

Taz89 says:

S4 mini is a year old and does have 1.5gb ram otherwise considering the age the g2 mini isn't really much better. Lol talking about who's got the worse mini, doesn't say much about the 2 companies.

Amir47 says:

It's 7 months old. And nobody said the minis reflect the company.
Just saying that LG G2 mini is a step down from the Z1 compact but a step up from the S4 mini.

thatguy97 says:

The rest of the specs are okay but the display???

I hope the price reflects the "Mini" moniker.

Agreed.

ಠ益ಠ

NoNexus says:

It kinda has to, it is a bit of a mutt on the RAM and Storage.

drokssilva says:

1gb?

-------------------------------------------------------
Sent from inside a cave. Yes, T-Mobile covers caves. N5

NoNexus says:

yeah it would have to run 4.4, anything less (4.2.2/4.3) would make for a horrible user experience.

drokssilva says:

Ummm moto x?

NoNexus says:

2GB Ram, 16/32GB storage so yeah the X wouldnt have a problem running 4.3 or 4.2.2

The Moto X is also not sporting a heavy UI like LG/Samsung does

MERCDROID says:

I kinda sorta agree with this.

ddonahueiup says:

Disappointed I don't understand why because you prefer a 4.7 screen that means you cant have a great device. Well at least I have my x. I wonder what they will ask for it off contract....$550?

ErnstMach says:

I was hoping for this to be another Sony-style screen-shrink without the spec-shrink, but the specs are good enough I suppose for now. I just want LG to know that the g3 mini's only difference from the g3 better be screen resolution and size

Kolten Nay says:

I know can you imagine the g2 with a 4.7 inch screen keeping the snapdragon 800? Awesome

n64kps says:

Pretty amazing how "mini" nowadays means 4.7" screen. In 2010, the HTC EVO was the biggest and baddest thing out there at 4.3". The iPhone 5/5S/5C is only 4".

Lol. remember how the hd2 was considered a monstrosity. I had that phone and could only say, wow this screen is massive. People looked on in awe as I maneuvered that giant. How times have changed or gotten out of hand depending on how you look at it.

dante501 says:

Screen isn't very good. But everything else is almost like a LG G. LG G still has better specs.

Posted via Android Central App Sony Xperia Z2.

MERCDROID says:

Other than the screen, I'd say that it's a pretty solid handset. The limited storage is offset by the presence of an SD card slot; and, releasing with 4.4 is a major plus.

My opinion, of course.

grydlok says:

SD card with KitKat. Maybe for pictures and video's

MERCDROID says:

Yeah, I actually did forget that apps can't be installed on external storage anymore.

3165dwayne says:

Nope, Samsung played it smart there and implemented there own version of apps 2 SD. although my sister has the LG F6 and that phone does support apps to SD so I think LG will do the same here. I can't say that it does much good though, she still runs out of space easily.

Lambertoid says:

Z1 compact would be the best mini to go with

NoNexus says:

so far yep.

benurd says:

4.7 inches seems to be the current sweet spot for mid range phones these days.

Wow! That "mini" is huge!!!

4.7" is mini now?.....jeez.

Yeah I think that mini is wrong here. 4.3 is mini

jdbii says:

Yep.

P.O.S.

66 mm wide is not "mini".
