In this article we’ll compare two flagships from LG, a mid-range/mid-sized smartphone, and a phablet. We found a few similarities between them – in terms of hardware, and it’s hard to determine which one is better, since they share the same screen resolution, cameras and plastic carcasses.
Displays and sizes
Both phones offer a resolution of 540x960pixels, but they have screens of different sizes: the G2 Mini has an IPS LCD screen with the size of 4.7 inches, while the G Pro Lite’s is also an IPS LCD, but it has a bigger size – 5.5 inches.
Because it’s a mid-sized phone, the G2 Mini measures only 129.6x66x9.8mm and it weights 121grams. The G Pro Lite is 30grams heavier, but its dimensions are: 150.2×76.9×9.4mm.
Hardware and OS
Both devices are equipped with 8GB of internal storage – which is expandable up to 32GB, but each device comes with a different processor.
The G2 Mini has a quad core cortex A7 processor (clocked at 1.2GHz), and the chipset is Qualcomm MSM8226 Snapdragon 400.
The G Pro Lite is the proud owner of a dual core cortex A9 processor (clocked at 1GHz) and Mediatek MT6577 chipset.
Although both gadgets are Androids and have 1GB of RAM, the G2 Mini comes loaded with the KitKat version, while the G Pro Lite comes with the Jelly Bean version, but you can upgrade it to the KitKat version.
Both devices take great photos with their 8MP primary cameras that have features such as LED flash and autofocus, and both face cameras have the resolution of 1.3MP. We haven’t noticed any difference here.
There is a battery capacity discrepancy, because the G2 Mini’s battery “dies” faster – because it has a capacity of 2440mAH, while the G Pro Lite’s Li-Ion battery has a much higher capacity – 3140 mAh.
The G2 Mini 4G LTE can be found on amazon.com at the price of 290 dollars. The G Pro Lite is cheaper, being sold for the price of 263 dollars.
