LG G2 Mini

Although it bears the same "G2" name as its big brother, the LG G2 Mini is watered down in every respect. Its screen has a disappointingly low resolution, its processor doesn't put up much of a fight and it has an 8- rather than 13-megapixel camera. Unless you crave 4G, the Motorola Moto G is a much better buy as it offers a better screen, the same processor and costs half the price. If however you're after the best mobile tech but in a more pocketable size, Sony's superb Xperia Z1 Compact is where your money should go.

Unless you're shopping on a very tight budget, the Moto G is still the best value phone around.
