Description

The HTC One mini is a physically smaller variant of the HTC One, aiming to pack as much cool as its larger sibling, but in a more compact, pocket-friendly package. At 122 grams, the new model is lighter, all the while being made of machine-milled metal, following in the One's footsteps. The HTC One mini comes with a 4.3-inch, 720x1280 pixel display, a dual-core Snapdragon 400 chip clocked at 1.4GHz, and 1GB of RAM, which are all okay specs for a mid-range device. HTC has chosen to put an UltraPixel camera with a 1/3" sensor size on the One mini, capable of 1080p HDR and slow motion video recording. There is no optical image stabilization, however. Android 4.2 comes running on the HTC One mini, with Sense UI layered on top, adding features like HTC BlinkFeed - a home screen that instantly provides the user with relevant information from social networks and across the internet. At this time, only two color variants of it have been announced, named Glacial Silver and Stealth Black.

  • 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.

    • 341 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.

  • Positioning:

    Positioning - This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. There are three main types: GPS, A-GPS and GLONASS. GPS - This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
