LG G2 Mini


I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with the LG G2 Mini? It has the power and volume buttons on the back, a bit like the original larger G2, but I'm a little weary that if I buy it I'll be constantly turning the phone on, making calls, taking photos etc whilst it's in my pocket. The covers have cut-outs so I can't think of any way to prevent it happening. It's putting me off getting it so I was just curious as to whether anyone else has any experience or finds the same issues with this phone. Otherwise I'd be looking at a Sony M2 for a similar price...

Thanks very muchly for any thoughts! :)

    Not a problem, I have the full size g2 so I'd imagine things work in the same way. When the phone is in a pocket or bag the proximity sensor on the front of the phone can detect this and disables the buttons. On my phone the volume buttons are completely disabled and the power button, if pressed, activates the screen but it immediately turns off again.
