    LG doesn't need to worry about leakers revealing their secrets too often because they tend to reveal their own stuff more often. This time they are teasing the LG G2 Mini in a graphic they posted on their Facebook page. They also made it clear that all the details will be revealed on February 24th. This is obviously official confirmation of the existence of the device which was only rumored before. Here's what the Facebook post shared as far as info with the teaser pic:

    So, there you have it. The LG G2 Mini will definitely be unveiled on the 24th of February. This also happens to be the same day that Samsung and Sony will be holding their press events. Let's cross our fingers they aren't doing them all at the same time too.

    Hmmm...looking like my preferred 4.7" screen is falling into no-man's land - the direction is either a 4.3" or smaller screen or 5" and bigger, apparently.

    I could maybe live with 4.3" as that's my Rezound, but if I have to give-up the hardware buttons then I want the full 4.7" screen.

    I'm glad manufacturers are producing smaller screens. My only issue with their method is they seem to feel like smaller screen means smaller specs. I want a 4.3" edgeless FLAT display, a 4000mah battery, sd slot, no hard or soft keys, front facing speakers, with an aluminum body and current specs. I don't care if my phone is .2" thick and lasts 12 hours. I would rather have a .4" thick phone last 48 hours or more. The new Droid Maxx is thinner than my Nexus yet it has twice the battery power. It is doable to make a small phone with crazy specs, but it seems that manufacturers feel that a 5" phone is the only one that can be top of the line.

    I wonder if the carriers aren't pushing the premium specs only on larger displays. People who have larger displays will probably tend to do more surfing and video, which means demand for more data. Look at VZW newest plans that give you 25gigs of cloud storage, especially considering how cheap more storage really is (and many consumers would pay a few extra bucks for it)

    My phone downloads a bunch of content for Current and GReader on wifi every morning, and that's plenty to read offline throughout the day. And I play most of my music off the SD card.

    I never thought of the carriers pushing the bigger screens. That's is a really good point for he majority. I still don't understand why they refuse to put a big battery in a small "ha" 4.3" phone. You would figure that everybody benefits from a bigger battery as the heavy data users need it because they kill the phone faster and light users need it because it would more closely replace dumb phones that last a week. The biggest complaint I hear from people who have just switched to a smart phone is how they hate that they have to charge it every night when they used to go a week between charges. Plus a bigger battery means you can use more data for longer.
