Motorola Droid Mini - Motorola Droid Mini has been finally unveiled along with other droids. As an overview Motororola Droid Mini has got a 4.3-inch SuperAMOLED display. I am pretty confused with the term mini tagged with smartphones with a display size of more than 4 inch. Let’s Dig inside the big Mini thing and find out what it has to offer.
Motorola Droid Mini Specifications
Design & Display
Motorola Droid Mini comes with a 4.3inch of screen size. The display seems to be an edge to edge display in its frame. It comes with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels with 342 ppi pixel density. The screen is made up of Corning Gorilla Glass for its protection against scratches. Droid Mini comes with SuperAMOLED capactive type touchscreen with 16m Colors and multi-touch support.
The Kevlar unibody glossy finish is somewhat glossy can be the downside as it tends to pick up fingerprints while you are using. Now this can really be a headache as it can make your device look really bad and full of fingerprint with nominal use also. The display quality was quite decent though can’t be termed as perfect. It is water splash repellant.
The Droid Mini measures 122.1 x 61.2 x 8.6 mm dimensionwise and weighs 140.1 gm
Processor and OS.
Motorola Droid mini comes with Motorola X8 chipset. It has got a 1.2 GHz dual core processor along with a Quad-Core GPU. The performance though could not match up to that pace which the general smartphone in that range have marked.
Motorola Droid Mini comes with 2GB of RAM. Now this is something not seen generally. It has got 16GB of internal memory with no support for further expanding it. I don’t know if this device really needed a 2GB of RAM. Though it doesn’t come with an expandable option, you can still enjoy this device with decent no of application and other data. However the latest trend set by the other smart phones is that almost all are expandable up to at least 32GB. So ist better to check out other option if you are planning to fill your smartphone with application consuming markable space.
Camera and Battery
Motorola Droid Mini comes with 10 MP primary autofocus camera with LED flash. It can record HD videos or 1080p resolution at 30fps. It has also got a 2MP front camera. Motorola Droid Mini comes with Li-Ion battery with 2,000mAh capacity. It is being termed to provide a backup of 28hrs (on paper).
