Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Vs. Motorola Droid Mini

If big lustrous screens don’t fascinate you anymore and you are looking for small, sleek yet powerful devices then you must consider two great Mini versions including Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and Motorola Droid Mini. The “big brothers” of these devices are already a huge hit in the market. These devices even though are smaller version of their counterparts but that doesn’t imply that they are less powerful. The following is a brief comparison of these two high end mini smartphones.



Samsung Galaxy S4 comes a Qualcomm MSM8930 Snapdragon processor with the 1.7 GHz Krait dual core CPU and the device runs on 1.5 GB RAM, which is pretty decent consider the size of the device. Even though only 8 GB internal storage is available for the device, it can readily be expanded to up to 32 GB using a microSD card. On the other hand Droid mini has got the same CPU and GPU but it consists of Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset. Also, the device has got 2 GB RAM along with 16 GB internal space. However, you will not be able to use microSD card in Droid mini.

Even though the size of the display in these phones is same, i.e., 4.3 inches, the specifications are pretty different as Galaxy S4 consists of a Super AMOLED display providing a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, whereas Droid Mini sports a TFT that has got 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. Both the devices have their screen covered by Gorilla Glass.

The Droid Mini is backed by Android version 4.3 and it includes a refreshed Moto UI, which helps to bring newness and better apps and widgets. Thus, the software specifications of both these devices are more or less the same.

These devices are superb no doubt and have got a lot of potential. However, Motorola Droid Mini has got a slight advantage mainly due to faster processor, higher RAM and slightly better camera.
