Can the LG G2 mini take on the Motorola Moto G?

lg-g2-mini

lg-g2-miniWith less than a week to MWC, LG yesterday announced the G2 mini, which as the name suggests is the smaller version of the flagship G2. Though LG has yet to formally announce the pricing for the device, the specifications suggests it would compete with the Moto G. Let s see then how they perform when pitted against each other.

  • Display: For one, the G2 mini isn t exactly a mini device as it sports a 4.7-inch display and that too with a disappointing qHD resolution. The Moto G then, is the clear winner with a 4.5-inch 720p display, which offers a higher pixel density.
  • Processing power: In terms of power, the two devices are evenly matched. Both have a Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz and paired with 1GB of RAM.
  • Storage: The Moto G lets you choose between an 8GB variant and a 16GB variant, while the G2 mini only offers 8GB of internal storage. But what makes the latter win the round is the presence of a microSD card slot to expand storage.
  • Cameras: The G2 mini edges ahead with an 8-megapixel snapper compared to the 5-megapixel on the Moto G. At the front, things are the same with a 1.3-megapixel camera.
  • Battery: Moto G sports an impressive 2,070mAh battery which easily survives a day. The G2 mini includes a bigger 2,440mAh, which isn t any less impressive either.
  • OS: Though LG seems to have cut corners, on the software front at least it provides the latest 4.4 KitKat. The Moto G too has been updated to 4.4 KitKat, so things are again even-steven here. However, the Moto G has an edge considering it has an almost stock Android implementation.

It is not surprising to see both these devices compared since both are nearly the same in all the departments. But where Moto G scores a huge win is the display, which has spoilt us and from now on nothing less should be expected in this segment. The Moto G also has water repellant nano coating both outside and inside, which earns it some more brownie points. That said, we have yet to see the kind of price tag LG puts on the device and unless there is a drastic difference in price, we will put our money on the Moto G.
