0. phoneArena 07 Jul 2013, 04:55 posted on

With the HTC One mini less than a month away from an expected launch over O2, the phone's appearance on the GFX Benchmark site gives us the latest look at the specs on the device; a dual-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 was spotted by GFX along with the Adreno 305 GPU. The site also confirmed the 720 x 1280 resolution that will be on the speculated 4.3 inch display...

because HTC is still living in their dream world where they know every consumer doesn't give a damn about battery life if the phone is pretty.
somebody please splash cold water on HTC so they can go back to the real world. =D

Probably not. The original One X had a 4.7 inch screen with only a 1800mah battery. I always assumed it would have crappy battery performance (so did most others like yourself), but in reality it wasn't the case. See the review on anandtech for proof:

http://www.anandtech.com/show/6914/samsung-galaxy-s-4-review/2

Specifically:

http://images.anandtech.com/graphs/graph6914/54313.png

And it's not a fluke measurement, it's come up that way many times in the past. Also noted by android central's phil:

"Actually, forget our usual review-speak. Battery life on the AT&T One X/One XL is nothing short of incredible."

All in all, I get sick of all those falsely perpetuated bulls**t that goes around. Watch for reviews, THEN talk your s**t.

So sorry but you proof is out of date. SGS4 was updated last month improved battery lifetime.

Also he choose web browsing which the S4 is disadvantage because AMOLED screen are less efficient at producing white (the main color of most website).
Also the S4 beats the HTC One X in all tests after the update, here's a link.

I was replying to erikiksaz's comment, which he compares the HTC One X to the S4, I know that its stupid comparing them as the S4 is about a year newer.

I think the battery is okay because it runs only a dual core processor. However, the screen might drain it faster than usual.

Darn...I was really hoping it would at least have a better battery than rumoured, matching the HTC First at least.

No. Nor does it have Beats audio nor Ultrapixel tech in it's 5MP camera.

But I really hope the HTC One Mini can last longer than the similar spec-ed Xperia V, which's battery life I've heard is unacceptably pathetic.

1. Beats Audio is just an ordinary equalizer
2. Ultrapixel is nothing special

Whether or not HTC decides to include these 'special' features with other phones, you won't really gonna miss it

To be honest Beats Audio stopped being an equalizer as it makes a huge difference on the One's speakers, and the Ultrapixels are unmatched in low light by any phone that anyone has tried to compare with mine. Just because you don't like the features doesn't mean other people don't enjoy them. But hating on everything seems your main hobby.

Care to explain how BEATS works from a hardware perspective?

Ultrapixels are unmatched in low light? Hell yeah, but it SUCKS at capturing details which is very essential in cropping lol

26. erikiksaz (Posts: 91; Member since: 22 Apr 2010)


"Ultrapixels are unmatched in low light? Hell yeah"

Just stop right there. I rarely if ever take pictures outdoors, so the ultrapixel fits me better than your S4/iphone5 cameras.

As for capturing details, I don't know what you're talking about. Mine captures details just fine. Don't blame a camera's performance on operator error.

As for beats, it is an equalizer, but it's an equalizer that works fairly well because it's built straight into the system. When I'm listening through my upgraded car speakers, beats get turned off. But, if I'm in a car with stock paper cone speakers, it's easy for me to jump into the settings to enable it, then to jump right back into the app. No messing with third party apps makes things easy. No configuration. Just on or off.

lol... a similar ''effect'' can be obtained thru N7 player (which is quite better because it has SRS and bass boost)

If I want to shoot at low-light, my full frame camera is my primary tool, because it does things 1000X BETTER than the ONE

Don't fool yourself, BEATS and Ultrapixel are nothin' but gimmicksx

beats audio is only audio profile and for better experience you are recommended to buy beats products -HTC.com

i did not knew beats audio before htc one x was released.

beats is sort of a advertisement on back cover of htc phones htc isn't the one who pays beats to , but beats pay htc to advertise their stuff

Again XSP over-shadows this device hands down!
And i bet the price will be more expensive.

The galaxy s2 lasted fine and the battery was smaller than that (had a 4.3" screen). Sure thw processor will be more efficient on this too

I don't think your comparison is an apt one.
The HTC One Mini has double the pixels to supply power to and process a picture for. The display also isn't AMOLED Plus.

The battery on the S2 was just a shade smaller, 1650 mA, and it had the distinct advantage of being removable. The S4 mini had a 1900 mA battery with a lower res screen and still the perk of it being removable.

In this size category, i think S4 mini is the best buy. I know some phones have some specs better, but overall S4 mini is a king in a midrange category. HTC ONE mini is great, but neiter is mini, neither is going to be priced as a midrange phone...

61. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3876; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


Moto X would like to disagree. It has a 4.3" 720p display, dual core Snapdragon S4 Pro with Adreno 320, and will have Google's pricing, which is very low off contract, much less than the $500 of the GS4 mini.

What???? 1700mAh??? So crazy. I am waiting for this phone but I suppose it packs at least 2000mAh, 16mp camera with dual LED flash or Xenon flash. I think that S4 mini is much better

U have been expecting something unreal...It is a MIDRANGE phone, and the specs u have listed don't have even released flagships. Give it a break!! Its a great phone, but I agree, S4 mini would be my first choice as well

Xperia SP in not in a mini range since it is quite lareger than S4 mini! Software updates from SONY are bad, and this phone probably won't get KLP. And final, its not that much better afterall, less RAM, not removable battery, no infrared port, shitty front camera

Not saying X SP is a bad phone, but surely it is not much better. S4 mini is more compact, has it own pros and might be a great choice for ppl who want small and powerfull phone.

Well, i do not know what have u been waiting for, but this phone is not that small, it a slighly smaller than ONE, and i would say same size as S3, S4 but with lower specs. Its better to go for ONE if u want HTC. I dont get it, with 4,3'' screen, it is soooo big. If they managed to make it as big as S4 mini, it would be top choice, but now it is just a good phone.

From this image, it seems roughly 63 mm wide.(Measured using Photoshop and math) That's pretty decent in my books.

You are right. Other pics of wider HTC One Mini's next to HTC One's suggest a size of 65mm, which is the size HTC normally go with for midrange devices.(HTC First and HTC One S)
I wonder if the thinner one is an earlier prototype...or maybe the wider ones are? Is pretty odd...

I wouldn't jump on the One mini so fast. The Moto X is very close to release, and it has a similar screen size, 720p 4.3-4.5" with minimal bezel, but the Moto X will have a bigger battery and Adreno 320. It'll probably be really cheap off contract as well, and if you're on a CDMA carrier in the U.S both Sprint's and Verizon's versions of the Moto X have already passed through the FCC. Plus, really quick updates, which is expected for a pure Google device.

Overall, I think the Moto X would be the best device. But if you really like Sense 5 and want those front speakers and metal body, go ahead on the One mini.

56. Genersis (Posts: 175; Member since: 29 May 2013)


I'd agree with the Moto X being better...if it can keep it's size comparable to the One Mini, and does not use a pentile AMOLED screen. But that's just my opinion.

posted on 08 Jul 2013, 13:29

59. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3876; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


Well, the One mini doesn't look that much smaller than the One because of the speakers, so the Moto X would be smaller, especially considering that Motorola does know how to keep bezels slim (Razr M).

I highly doubt it will be a full RGB AMOLED display. Samsung said that the highest pixel density a full RGB AMOLED display can have without damaging it is that of the Note II (265 ppi), and they can't stay under that on a 4.3" display without it having qHD resolution. I would much rather take a 720p 342 ppi Pentile display than a qHD 256 ppi RGB display.

The HTC One has surprised me with how good the battery life is and I came with from the Note 2. I would reserve judgement until the device has spent some time in the field. If the battery does last though this phone would be better than the iPhone lol.

Just watching tennis at espn3 yesterday using my hTc One, it consume 40-46 % of battery for lest than an hour, but in my gnote 2, it consume 30% for around 2 hours with the same wifi. That's why replaceable battery is important, atleast for me!!!

Yet again another big let down by HTC! Why not:
S600 at 1.9Ghz
1080p
469ppi
Adreno 320

Apple iP5 has much better specs than this midrange.
For a 4inch iP5 why not provide the same specs on the One on the Mini?

Learn from Apple HTC!

43. TROLL (banned) (Posts: 4851; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)


What I'm trying to say is this was meant to substitute the One with the same specs on the Mini. There are many consumers who don't like and hate big phones: anything above 4.3inch.

If Apple can make a great high end device on a 4inch why can't other OEMS?

This has twice as much RAM and a higher density display than the iPhone 5, I would much rather have this than any iPhone.

IPhone 5 is anything but high end. The screen is below 720, only has 1 GB of ram, the battery is like 1400 mah etc, it is a dual core clocked at 1.2 GHz. How the hell is that high end?! Only thing high end about the iPhone 5 is the GPU and even then it's not really compared to the Qualcomm 800 GPU and the exynos octa tablet version of the same GPU. Any mid range android running IOS 6 will outperform the iPhone 5 handily except maybe in games.

I think the HTC fantardism from the likes of can you see light is rubbing off on you guys....

These phones are not midrange. Pound for pound they are just as high end when you scale them. If you put a Qualcomm 600 in a smaller phone with a smaller battery what do you think will happen? It will have s**t battery life and outperform the flagship because it doesn't have to push a 1080 p screen. They HAVE TO scale down the specs to match the screen and smaller battery, but that doesn't make them mid range. Those are the best specs you are going to get for a 4.3 inch 720 screen and a 1700 may battery.

You want a 2100mah battery? Get a bigger phone because smaller phones don't need it. Especially this one since it already is almost as big as the HTC One. If they add a bigger battery it would be effectively the same size as the HTC One if it not already is.

You should grow up, and stop taking comments about phones seriously and maybe consider getting a life.
