HTC One mini vs Galaxy S4 mini, HTC One and more: size comparison

HTC One mini vs Galaxy S4 mini, HTC One and more: size comparison
When you think about it, the HTC One mini is a very exciting smartphone, as it manages to both offer compact dimensions and retain the premium status of its bigger variant. Not many other handsets have managed to do that, not even the recently launched Galaxy S4 mini, which looks like a decidedly mid-range product.

So, the One mini will soon be able to make users happy by giving them the option to have a high-quality smartphone that isn't a gargantuan slab, but exactly how much smaller is it going to be compared to the original One? Also, it'd be quite interesting to see it lined up next to comparable handsets like the Galaxy S4 mini and why not event the iPhone 5? Well, let's take a look then!

As you can see, the HTC One mini is significantly longer than its rival, the Galaxy S4 mini, but then again, it's also much more stylish than what Samsung has to offer. Meanwhile, the iPhone 5 is even smaller than the GS4 mini, but what's important here is that the One mini is considerably smaller than the One, so it certainly makes for HTC to launch this new product. Finally, a reasonably-sized smartphone with and HD screen and solid internals!

Here's the One mini compared to some other smartphones of similar size:

Xperia ZR is the best mini as of now.

A 132x63mm phone is never mini in 2013, maybe in 2015 as sizes are growing each year. Today's mini size without low-end specs should tend to 120x60mm. 1700mAh non removable battery to feed a 720p screen is a joke, and the small processor won't help taking profit of the display. HTC disappoints me a bit more phone after phone despite I got 3 of their devices since 2008... S4 mini has the good power/size despite i don't like SS' flashy screens and glossy cheap plastics, they defenitely improved since pitiful S3mini. but qHD screen sticks the phone to mid-mid-range. According to latest pictures XT1030 Droid Mini will be the best representative of the "mini" category on the size aspect. If it has 720p screen + harmonious hardware + MotoX features I'll defenitely make it mine day1.

I wouldn't call the HTC one mini cosiderably smaller than the one... Also how has the one mini kept the premium of the bigger "brother than the s4 mini . they both look like bigger versions. The one mini has better screen , the s4 mini has better internals.

I vote for XSP! Clearly the top dog except for the TFT screen.

The HTC One is definitely a good looking phone, but the HTC One Mini's design lacks some of its big bother finishing, which makes me feel that it isn't so premium as the HTC One. We know that it's a mid-range device, but look at the S4 Mini, it has all the same design characteristics of the S4, and it makes me fell that I own a "S4 phone". I don't get the same feeling looking at the HTC One Mini. PS: I'm not a fan of S4 "plastic thing" but it's for sure a good looking phone too.

U're right, SS' flagship has the finishing of a low-end device, so it's not hard to make the same on a mid-range that looks the same :-)

Obviously, because it's the smallest phone and everyone wants small phones because it's the year 2000.

I just like a small phone because we still have the same size pockets as in the year 2000.

And the processor and the build quality and ohhh almost everything.

22. piyath

Posts: 2445; Member since: Mar 23, 2012

Processor??? Are you a dumb ass or what? S4 mini is better in the processor category. Build quality is rational. It's not a fact. I like the plastic built rather more.

34. gorkapr

onboard memory gs4m 8gb One Mini 16gb

23. piyath

No you are a wrong. Both have 16 Gb internal storage. But in addition S4 mini had a micro SD card slot too. HTC doesn't support micro SD card or any external memory card.

Yah HTC One Mini wins in Build Quality, Dual Speaker, & Screen Resolution, But S4 Mini only wins in Chipset & Compaction Build, In Screen Technology It is user itself must pick which is best for them coz i dont know which is best if S-Amoled or that S-LCD 2 coz for me this 2 type is ok for me.

13. akki20892

no LCD 2 is great screen, it gives you best color. check GS4 vs HTC One u will see differences, htc one screen gives u pure color while Gs4 screen gives u yellowish. because i seen differences.
