Another "Mini" with gimped specs


Gator352 says:


But you got to realize these are for folks who couldn't care any less what the specs are. You know, those folks who shouldn't have anything more technologically advanced than a solar calculator.

Impulses says:

Yeah, but there are also folks who want a flagship device in a smaller form factor, and they're vastly underserved and haze a right to be miffed when OEMs just use flagship branding on midrange small form factor devices.

DeerSteak says:

That would be me. I want a fast device, but I don't want the prerequisite 5.2" screen that goes along with it nowadays. 4.5" is about perfect.

Impulses says:

I almost picked the Moto X over the Nexus 5 over size alone, and I've got fairly decent sized hands (5'10", long fingers)... Had it been cheaper off the bat and/or slightly better spec'd (no Spark support, lower res, etc) I would've gone for it. I hope the X+1 or whatever remains relevant in the same way.

And me.

Count me in as well.

ApplWedge says:

You could also just get an iPhone if you want something with fantastic spec and performance in a smaller package.

It's very similar.

Only thing is the extra RAM from the i9300 and IP67, and other new features.

Maybe in camera optics but I don't see it

We are cooking with fire! This is around the same size of my RAZR M, this goes on the lost of potential phone upgrades, here's hoping it comes to Verizon.

I love how whenever Motorola does something with specs like these, they're praised...and when Samsung does it everyone says they suck. like the amount of hate they receive is absolutely not necessary.

Anonne says:

The real complaint here is that Samsung is making a gimped version of the flagship when they really want the flagship but with a smaller form factor. We already know what's inside the main s5. People are feeling cheated.

DeerSteak says:

Motorola wrapped the Moto X up in a tiny package with identical hardware but a smaller screen and called it the Droid Mini. Samsung cut this thing off at the knees.

Ry says:

But the DROID MINI is stuck on Verizon.
