I'm using this phone for almost 2 years now and I can say that this is really amazing. The phone is really compact for its screen size. It doesn't have HD display but the colors really pops. It's camera is so good that it slayed my friend's 5C. The performance is quite snappy but i did encounter delays from time to time but overall this device is so snappy. The design is so cool too that my friends doesnt know where the button placements are. Also the battery is outstanding. Lastly, this phone is very tough, dropped it like 20 times without any case just with screen protector and it works just fine, no scratches on the screen just some dents on the side.
Jom, 02 Feb 2016Is this phone good to buy its a $150 here in philippines?Yes, this phone is a hidden jewel and though it doesnt have HD display, its display really pops. The camera is so nice and fast. The performance is quite great, mine is so snappy btw.
I really like LG G2 mini. I have it for like 16 months and had everything i needed before it started lagging. Well, i must be of the small ram and the big apps that make it lag, but still i need speed and big apps. Anyway, the problem i got today was that while i was using it, is turned black. I thought that i turned off for some strange reason, but it didn't. After a while i realised that it was open, but there was no light in the screen. I could and still barely can see the apps and some white parts inside some apps. Does any1 has any idea about how to solve such a problem?
Feedback update after one and a half years.
This July will be its 2nd year.
Good phone overall.
Now my problem only is the memory. It's down to 500mb and I keep clearing cache,storage clean up so i can catch up or maintain the 1gb.
Did restore factory settings and put back my everyday used apps only.
And it went back to low memory again.
My personal opinion about this is that, there could be also a tie up or negotiation to mobile company to big apps company when it comes to updating those apps we use nowadays.
You may require to update your app orelse it will not work.
Once you updated, your phone will turn slow making you upgrade your phone the soonest.
Anyway, i might get another LG phone after i finish contract this July :)

Lovely phone, easy to use. However problems with battery start after 6 months. No customer service in UK or Europe for this type of phone. If you are using this phone on and off, then ok, but heavy users should avoid
please tell me Pakistani users.
it's a 4g and 3g supported phone or not ?
because I want to buy this phone.
please share your experience about this phone .
It's the best smartphone i ever had, from iphone 3s to samsung s duos2 and now my G2 Mini D618 is turning 2 years this May 2016 but still good as new. I updated to 5.02 but i use v20e rom (manually flash) from CIS, much more stable than v20d current release in Philippines. It's not the best performance (speed) phone, but it's still the best feature-packed smartphone you'll see in the philippine market up to now..

I've rooted my phone and it works better. I also use Greenify (root only I think), a really nice app that hibernates some apps saving battery. On a normal day, checking Facebook, using Chrome and other apps over Wi-Fi and also playing around 1h/day, at the end of the day I recharhe my phone during the whole night, while I sleep. The best part is that if I want I can make the battery last for 2 days maybe more by using the phone rarely.
Before the root I can't remember exactly how was the battery, but as far as I remember it was pretty decent, around one day.
So you shouldn't worry to much, the phone is great but try to close the Wi-Fi/Data Connection when you don't need them, get a task killer app and search more ways to get a better battery on the internet.
In my opinion you should not do things you don't want. For example don't turn off sync or other functions just to save battery, at the end of the day it's about using your phone properly. You could get a power bank if your battery isn't getting any better.
Just bought this phone today, i have a good experience with LG phones, they're tough and reliable never had any problems and from what I've read in the reviews on this phone i think it's a good deal, and hope it will be a good experience like with his old pals ;)
