Just got my new G2 mini. I love it. The only thing I really don't like is the lack of auto screen brightness sensor (forgot how it is called).
It doesn't have notification diode but I would always rather have knock-code than that small LED. I really design of it.
That low screen res bothered me just for few minutes. Than I downloaded Nova Launcher
and Numix circle icon pack
and now I don't really see the pixels. I like the small bezels and nice design. Camera sucks but LED is good for flashlight
I should get to rooting and get some roms, but I've never done it. So I will do some studying and maybe later get to it.
