In 2014 when I got the phone, i was very happy with it. After about 7 months l, its performance fades away. The battery life goes to about 2 hours. I always have it plugged into a portable charger and even then, it charges rather slowly. The lag is just unreal. It can't handle more than one app. Stay away from this phone. Go for a galaxy or maybe the new Moto z force
Murtie, 09 Apr 2016Reflashing the rom will solve your problem.
Skype?How can I do that? Please help
well Droid mini does a lot of things, so much
The active notification rather drains power rather than preserving it since the whole screen has to light up for it to work.
It doesn't do too well in areas without great network because it struggles to hold a signal.
camera is good but a train wreck when you use Flash at night.
The Phone can really heat up making it so hot to use, especially when charging.
make no mistake, all these can be bypassed but the deal breaker is the battery power.
phone lasts about just 2 hours on medium to heavy usage on 3G. 3 hours on 2G. I shudder to think how long it lasts on 4G.
the battery back up is just horrible, 2000mAh should last at least, half a day but my phone's on charge almost all the time.
Do not buy this phone.
This phone is the biggest piece of crap being sold. Have to charge the battery three times a day. Can't replace battery on this model. Motorola is a garbage company with there garbage phone. Have to go buy an I Phone before long and tell everyone to stay away from this manufacturer. Hear me know VZ Wireless???
Question, 19 May 2016Is the droid mini good for games like San Andres etc.yea i guess its good for game even heaver than san andreas
In August 2014 I received my Red Droid Mini for free as an upgrade and it was the best phone I have ever had with the exeption of 3G service. Its camera takes great pics even in the dark but after about 12 months its battery life became an issue and at 15 months the camera started to tweek out and not allow me to adjust the flash along with the regular hot flashes that I am sure had something to do with its other problems. I will admit I did drop it a few times and surprisingly it was very durable but 2 months ago the final drop shattered its screen...the bottom buttons no longer worked and the back button is essential so since I was done with my Verizon contract after 12 plus years I went to another carrier and bought another phone. I did not like ANY of the choices for phones and settled on an LG Sunset. It was a struggle but I was happy to have battery life last about 2 days rather than 5 hours. After almost 3 weeks I could not bare the sluggish ways of the LG Sunset and decided to purchased a used Mini on line. It was black this time and definately not as attractive as the Red. Well I have had this Mini for 6 wks now and camera is already tweeking out and battery life less than 8 hours and even worse the screen is fading off into white lines and not responding to my screen swiping. It also likes to send texts before Im done writing along with jumping to previous screens randomly... I stumbled onto this forum looking for cell phone similar to thee Droid Mini cuz overall it is in my opinion was my favorite but with it only having about a year of good service before it becomes insubordinate I will have to accept that I must move on and choose another. Any suggestions ???...even on devises not to buy...I dont play games on my phone and mainly use my phone for text talk and some web browsing, GPS and voice recognition has to be good along with an indicator light so I see if i have a miss call, text and email rather than having to keep checking by turning screen on. Thanks for reading to the end. Peace : )
