LG Mini review

L G is doing well again, as recently the Korean brand introduced its first Android smartphone onto the market, and additionally, an extensive new line of smartphones with the LG S-Class User interface has become available. This new interface ensured a pleasant control in the LG Arena and the LG Viewty smart, and has been developed even further for the LG mini, which of course arouses our curiosity. LG has sought collaboration with DJ Tiësto for the LG mini. The special Tiësto Edition has extra mobile content so that you can enjoy your phone immediately. After an earlier collaboration with Armin van Buuren for the LG Arena, LG seems to be emphasizing music and entertainment for the younger consumer. The videoshoot for the LG mini campaign, together with DJ Tiësto, was recorded in Miami, which completes the picture. Let's see what the new LG Mini GD880 smartphone has to offer.

The LG mini GD880’s packaging is simple but neat. On the top we see a picture of the phone next to a measuring stick, to show once more that the format is an important specification of this LG. Further, the other features are listed and the packaging is made of recyclable materials. When we open the packaging, the LG Mini is found in a special cutout. The LG Mini is very compact and has a pretty sleek design. Additionally, we find a charger, data cable, a headset and instruction books in the package. We try out the Tiësto Edition with an 8GB memory card on which various Tiësto content is included. LG’s cell phone has a silver border with a piece of brushed aluminum on the front. There are only a few keys: the volume keys, the power key and a quick key for the camera. This means that this device is operated via the touchscreen in the menu. The phone is pretty comfortable to handle, but perhaps it is a bit too square.

LG Mini GD880 Tiësto edition’s Menu

As is almost standard currently, we also find a number of different start screens in the LG Mini. In this case, there are three, which can all be completely arranged according to personal taste. Just hold down an icon and you can add Links, Widgets or Favorites to the main screen. You decide what is easiest for you and it truly becomes a personalized cell phone. At the bottom of the start screen there is a tab with four quick keys. You can easily get to the keypad in order to choose a number, to go to the phonebook or to write messages. The last quick key is really a menu key.
