LG has embraced the fashion launched a Compact Edition of its flagship smartphone
This strategy is aimed at users looking for a high-end experience but prefer a more manageable smartphone, as large screens have taken over the most advanced terminals. But LG has made a particular interpretation of this concept and its G2 LG Mini is not exactly compact, but committed to a panel of 4.7 inches diagonally. The company also lowered the technical level on points such as camera and processor, but has maintained the unique features. The model that is inspired, the LG G2 is one of the most complete of the moment Android, we see all the differences with its brand new little brother.
As mentioned, the size difference between the two terminal screens is not all wide what is expected. The LG Mini G2 features a 4.7-inch panel, which although is a little below the usual standards, is still a very large panel that could be too much for users looking for a handy terminal. The resolution is qHD or 540 x 960 pixels and its density is 234 ppi. Meanwhile the LG Original G2 has a 5.2-inch display with full HD 1080p resolution, plus so wide, it is also sharper (424 ppi).
Maybe the size of the complete Edition is not as compact, but at first glance, we see that the difference between the two is evident. What they share is the design, and that is LG has modeled the appearance of the upper model with attention to detail. The two have a way of rounded corners and elegant line, which is particularly remarkable for the elimination of the volume buttons on the side; now go to the back under the camera.
The new LG G2 Mini has an eight-megapixel rear camera that records videos in 1080p HD resolution and has the basic functions (autofocus, face detection, geo-tagging and LED flash). In its front face equips another sensor, but this time with 1.3 megapixel and HD720p video recording. The LG has not provided more information about special features of the LG G2 Mini, but we do know that its brother has increased several interesting systems. Besides coming with BSI sensor of 13 megapixels, the LG G2 has an optical image stabilization system, sapphire crystal lens, 9 point focus with object tracking, digital zoom up to eight and a choice of dual camera. Also FullHD video recording at 60 fps with high sound quality and has a 2.1 megapixel front camera.
The media must give up a point to LG G2, which allows recording and playback sound quality, in addition to the Audio Zoom function to highlight the sound of a specific part of the video. Both have good support for various audio formats, video and images, and also have an FM radio.
In the same vein, the LG G2 Mini carries a less powerful processor than the upper model. Snapdragon is a quad-core chip 400, which runs at 1.2 GHz and is supported by 1 GB of RAM. Meanwhile the LG G2 has a much more powerful engine, a quad-core Snapdragon Krait 800 400 running at 2.26 Ghz. It also comes with 2 GB of RAM. As to the internal memory, the LG G2 is available in 16 and 32 GB capacity, but does not allow any extension. However, the LG G2 Mini, but has 8 GB capacity, yes it has an expansion slot for MicroSD cards.
The LG G2 Mini is newer and playing with the advantage of Android 4.4 KitKat standard, while the LG G2 came with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. However when the new model is in store is very likely that the LG G2 has already been upgraded to Android KitKat, so there will be no difference in this regard. On the other hand the two models have the typical package of Google and also a series of eigenfunctions of LG as KnockOn, Capture Plus, Text Link, Clip Tray and Plug & Pop.
Although there are slight differences, the two models share many connections. For example both are compatible with 4G networks (LTE) and 3G (G2 LG Mini to LG 21 Mbps and 42 Mbps Mini G2). You can connect by WiFi, WiFi Direct data transfer, doubling the display via DLNA or make payments with NFC chip. They also have Bluetooth 4.0, GPS antenna support Glonass, headphone and MicroUSB port.
The autonomy of the LG G2 is one of its strengths, and is getting really long lasting. Its battery capacity is 3,000 milliamps and can be connected for 17 and a half hours use and 900 hours standby, said soon. The LG G2 Mini has a battery of 2,240 milliamps and could also approach the figures of its older brother; however there are no official data.
As it was mentioned earlier, LG has created a reduced version of its flagship, but the interpretation has been somewhat different than have other brands like Sony LG or HTC. To begin the LG G2 Mini is not as compact, but still maintains its status as big screen. Instead, what it does reduce most notably are their specifications, such as resolution of the panel, the camera or processor. The good thing is that it maintains the functions of LG, the 4G connection and has a very elegant, like the top model design. The price will be instrumental and in view of their differences will also be an advantage for the new model.
