LG G2 mini hands-on (Video)

A 1.7GHz quad-core SoC. A 4.7-inch IPS display at qHD resolution. A 2400 mAh battery. 8MP or 13MP camera (depending on market) with no optical image stabilization. LTE Category 4 with Android 4.4 KitKat. Oh, and a rear key.

You know the old saying: if it’s a mixed bag of impressive and meh, it’s probably a “mini” phone. That’s the sitch with LG’s new midsize smartphone, a device we bemoaned as not enough mini and not enough G2 on last week’s episode of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast.

Still, the G2 mini exists – and now that we’ve had a chance to play with it in person, we’re not entirely averse to that fact. Our own Jaime Rivera gets his hands dirty with this one, showing off the phone’s snap-on flip cover and the newly-revised KnockON security-unlock feature, as well as an assortment of color options. Hop on down to see for yourself what the G2 mini is all about, and stick around for much more as the MWC train rolls on.
