Motorola Droid Mini

It's the Droid Mini you know and love, now with a new color option

Frequent device revealer @evleaks has posted a press render today of a Motorola Droid Mini in white, headed to Verizon. Details on an exact price and availability aren't known, but there isn't much to the imagination here. Verizon often releases new colors of devices to help bump sales, especially around the holidays.

If you've ever wanted a Droid Mini but just can't make yourself pull the trigger on the plain 'ol black or saucy red model, wait it out for this white one to arrive. New colors of phones usually aren't too far behind leaked renders like this.

My Razr M looks fine besides the screws missing and the couple dents.

And that is fine?

I own the mini, great pocketable device and is very sturdy. I highly recommend it to any one interested in it

Just picked one up for cheap the other day. With a near stock experience and Kit Kat in the near future makes this a win win imo.

Why did Motorola get rid of expandable memory? I would have stayed with android if that was the case.

Its all about the money sadly. If you want more storage you have to pay for it. Also its a shift towards using cloud storage, which is dumb in my opinion

Or it's about the instability of SDcards and near complete lack of support for removable storage in the latest versions of Android.

Never had problems of instability though support for SD cards has dropped to only Samsung and blackberry devices. Now when I go upgrade within the week, I can only look at those two.

I say give the Z30 a shot, if you haven't already played around with it. It'll be refreshing, for sure. Plus, you get your SD card slot (up to 64GB, I believe).

I've never had a problem with an SD card. Google is forcing the cloud.

I have no issues with none of that. 75 GB on google drive and 75GB on dropbox for the next 2 years so I'm totally living on the cloud

Still has to have at least 32gb on board. Anything less is bs.

The thing that sucks about the cloud is it rips through your data. I'd rather have my personal pictures files music etc on an SD card, way easier to just pop it in from phone to phone

No its no just about that. It is slower, less reliable and implementation was different from oem to oem.

I love local storage as much as the next guy but also want some facts out there.

It's a wonderful little phone. Solid, carries well, just as powerful as its Moto X and larger Droid brothers.

Had to switch from the EVO LTE, so it took a little getting used to from Sense's features. Nothing some tweaks and apps couldn't fix though. Great little phone.

Why buy a Droid Mini when you can get an X? I can understand a Droid Maxx and maybe Ultra but the Mini?

Posted via Android Central App

It's cheap. Yes, the smaller screen is old-school LCD and the battery is smaller, but its guts are the same. We would have bought Ultras or HTC Ones after having to switch carriers after a move, but money was tight, and the Mini delivered.

I'm actually really impressed with the LCD. The color saturation blows compared to high end phones like my ONE, but the trade of you get is that it gets extremely fricken bright. Whites and greys are also more accurate. This phone is a high end device packed in a nice form factor, with a sub par screen. I'd give it an 8/10

I went back and forth debating whether to get the X or the Mini when upgrading from my Gnex. The casing and the feel of the X is definitely superior, but ultimately I went with the Mini because:
- Exact same internals as the X, so you get all the same cool hardware/software features, plus all day battery life.
- Size makes it much easier for 1-handed use / much more pocketable. I grew frustrated w/ the size of my Gnex, especially for 1-handed use on the road.
- Mini has an LED notification light; the X doesn't. I like being able to see from across the room what kind of message is waiting for me.
- Mini has wireless charging; the X doesn't.

After 2 months, I'm still loving the Mini. Pretty sure my next phone will be a Moto.
