Description

The One mini 2 sports a much smaller chassis than the One (M8), housing a 4.5" display with 720x1280 pixels of resolution. The rest of the specs make it a decent midranger, too, as the munchkin sports a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage (12 GB user-available). This time HTC has provided a microSD card slot, too. Add to these the new 5 MP wide-angle front camera, the BoomSound stereo speakers at the front, plus a larger, 2100 mAh battery, and the One mini 2 becomes a serious contender in the crowded midrange category. The handset runs on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat, with Sense 6.0 sprinkled on top.

  • Resolution:
    • 720 x 1280 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 326 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
