We were somewhat disappointed by the LG G2 mini specs – a lower mid-range phone flaunting a flagship name – but the (relatively) compact gadget has gone on store shelves in Europe at a rather steep price.
Several German retailers – Amazon Germany, MediaMarkt and Saturn – have priced the G2 mini at €350. Amazon Spain has it at the same price. The phone should be available in a couple of days on March 31, just in time for an April launch.
Note that there are three versions of the LG G2 mini, this one is the Snapdragon-powered LTE version. “Snapdragon” shouldn’t excite users here as it’s only a quad Cortex-A7 CPU with Adreno 305 GPU.
Considering a Moto G has a better screen (4.7” again, but 720p over qHD), the same chipset and the 16GB version costs €200 (it lacks LTE though), LG will have a tough sell on its hands.
Of course, it’s entirely possible that these first retailers have upped the price significantly for the pre-order. We’ll see if it falls in a few days.
