Official Droid Mini specs


Only 16gb storage and no micro sd expansion. That's a big compromise over the new 32gb Maxx or Razr M with 8gb + 32gb sd expansion.

Verizon also lists the Maxx's battery capacity incorrectly on their spec sheet. It shows being the same as the Ultra. I'm sure they'll correct it soon.

The weight is also wrong on the Mini. Lists it being 4.94 oz, which is heavier than the Ultra. That can't possibly be correct.

Guys,Something strange is happening to me. I don't know if i can justify 100 more dollars for a 5 inch screen when the specs are the same.I don't know what is happening..lol. all jokes aside--this looks to be a dang good phone.With my upgrade due on the 14th i have a tough decision to make.Even more so if the one gets launched on Verizon before then.

I'm glad Motorola and Samsung are offering "mini" versions of their newest phones. As much as I like my Razr Maxx, it's near-impossible to use one-handed. Inconvenient when the phone rings when I'm driving, especially.. Not everyone needs a huge screen- I own a tablet for that.

What's the resolution? 720 hopefully? This is shaping up to be the best of the Minis. Now if only it were available in some form on T-Mobile.

Too bad they're not making this in unlocked, GSM form. Or perhaps a Moto X Mini that follows this same trend. My girlfriend really wants a smaller phone, and this looks great. But we're definitely not doing Verizon.

We don't know that yet. This was a Verizon event. Of course they wouldn't announce anything non-Verizon.

I'm really disappointed with the SDCard. My bionic also has 16gb onboard, and it's not enough (audiobooks & mp3s).
Now I have to decide if I want to pay $200 extra, and get a bigger phone just for the the extra storage (though the battery will be nice too).

if it had the oled screen and wireless charging, I'd be all over it :-(
wish more phones would fit in a woman's pocket, but not at the expense of other features

It does have wireless charging. Bummer about the display though. My RAZR M's AMOLED destroys my 8X's LCD. If it looks as good as the iPhone's TFT it won't be too horrible I guess.

The're is no need to unlock Verizon 4g phones as they are not locked. Any sim card in the world will work. Unlike Sprint, Verizon doesnt carrier lock their phones. Also check out the new Verizon Edge program. A payment plan with 6 month upgrades on phones.

My mini went haywire..took to Verizon store..only way to fix was to reset to factory settings....lost all contacts, photos n videos. What's the point of backup etc. If all is now lost. No way to retrieve I guess. Really sad.
