droidminiofficialThe Motorola Droid Mini smartphone is a 4G capable device running on the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE system in the United States. With coverage of more than 90% of Americans, Verizon delivers arguably the fastest 4G LTE service in the US in more than 440 markets. The Droid Mini from Motorola runs the company’s new X8 Mobile Computing System, and debuted with its siblings, the Motorola Droid Maxx and Droid Ultra a couple of months ago. That handset was recently dropped in price to $45 on contract at select online retailers like the Amazon Wireless store.

The Motorola Droid Mini can be purchased at a reduced price starting at $44.99, saving you up to $55 over carrier prices.

A review of the phone needs to center around the unique X8 processor package which includes a standalone contextual computing core, natural language processing core, quad core graphics processor and dual core CPU. The Snapdragon S4 Pro has been clocked at 1.7 GHz, and obtains its speed thanks to the fact that the graphics processor and individual language and computing cores handle some everyday and low energy tasks, allowing the main processor to focus on your more important and immediate requests and processes.

Iqbal Arshad, Motorola‚Äôs senior vice president in charge of engineering, said that this unique hardware package also helps conserve battery power. This is what helps Motorola make the Droid Mini in such a slim, compact and lightweight package, while still delivering a large high-resolution display and impressive battery juice. Running Android’s 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system out-of-the-box, the phone measures just 4.77 x 2.41 x 0.35 inches (121.25 x 61.3 x 8.9 mm) in size. And even though the familiar and durable DuPont Kevlar fiber body is on board as with previous Motorola Droid devices, the phone weighs only 4.59 ounces (130 g).

A large 4.30 inch True HD screen on the Droid Mini delivers a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, delivered at 342 pixels per inch. That LCD display is home to more than 16 million individual colors, as well as light and proximity sensors which further help extend battery life. In an industry where 11.0 hours of talk time from a single battery charge is the average, the compact Motorola Droid Mini 4G running on Verizon delivers a more than generous 28.0 hours of talk time. The phone can stay in standby mode for roughly two weeks, and supports wireless charging.

The hardware package mentioned above which powers the handset is joined by 16 GB of built-in data storage space and 2.0 GB of RAM system memory. Built into the back of the Droid Mini is a 10.0 megapixel “quick capture” camera with autofocus, a built-in LED flash, and the capability of recording video in Full HD resolution at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels (1,080P HD). A front facing 2.0 megapixel chat cam is also on board, the Droid Mini supports NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and mobile web browsing out-of-the-box, and can function as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot for multiple wireless devices.

The Droid Mini can be purchased at a discounted price tag now starting at $44.99.
