You can adjust the settings for blog comments by clicking on the Settings link on the left-hand side of your blog's overview page. Then click the link for "Posts and comments."
There are many options for changing how your readers can submit comments to your blog. The first is the Comment Location option, or how your readers will see the Comments box. You have four choices:
1. Full page - It opens a full-size page where the commenter can see the full post, other reader comments and a block for entering their own comment. I tested this option on my mobile and it defaulted to the embedded comment option, rather than changing to a full page.

Under the comment settings you can also determine who is allowed to comment. The options include anyone, Registered user, User with a Google account and only members of the blog. Each option gets progressively more selective as to who can comment. I like allowing anyone to comment, that way I don't force someone to get an account they don't want just to make a comment on my blog. Of course, this means that "Anonymous" users (read: Spammers) are allowed to comment.
The next option is comment moderation. This allows you the option to always, sometimes or never moderate comments. If you choose "always" or "sometimes" (for posts greater than X days old) moderate, the comments will be placed on hold until you approve them for posting via your Blogger homepage. I have mine set to always moderate which means no spam comments make it to my site (and therefore my readers that are following comments). This also means that I never miss a comment. It is a little more work, but I hate spam!
Last, but not least, is the Word Verification option. I'm sure you know how mine is set!
