The LG G2 has received many positive reviews, being praised for its fast processor, excellent camera and high resolution, although it has a pixel density of 424 ppi and it isn’t water resistant.

The LG G2 Mini weights 121 grams and measures: 129.6x66x9.8 mm, but the G2 is obviously heavier, weighting 143 grams because it measures: 138.5×70.9×8.9 mm.
