Engadget Summary

The Droid MINI is the smallest of Verizon's latest batch of Motorola exclusives, and while it cuts some corners to be a budget-friendly handset, it's still a good option for those who need a solid phone at a low price. The MINI's 720p display isn't the best, and though Laptop Magazine says the screen shows "displays bright and vibrant images in sharp detail," they also find "its colors are slightly exaggerated." Unfortunately, the low resolution display doesn't lead to better battery life, with Android Police saying it "isn't fantastic, but it isn't bad." On the other side of the Droid MINI is a 10-megapixel camera that CNET says "nabbed great photos both inside and out in the wild." With a name like MINI, it's no surprise that the phone's best feature is its small size, and phoneArena says the MINI is "quite compact and comfortable to hold." While it isn't the most powerful phone nor does it have the longest battery life, the Droid MINI is still a good compact device for those who need a simple, low cost smartphone.
