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:

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

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.

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.

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.

Don't tell lies. Samsung won awards even for their latest Amoled display on the S4. Even according to the Adobe company S4 display is the best in the market today. It gives more natural colors just like the iPhone 5 and its a popular news buddy. Amoleds are less power consuming and give rich colors compared to dull colors on any LCD screen. Sorry pal that's the truth..

Dude in my home we have gs4 and HTC one, and I know what is difference between both. Sorry but it's true. Whenever u have hands on check it then tell.

Its not about LCD or AMOLED. We are talking about resolution, qHD or HD ?

in the S-amoled, if you put all yellow the screen, and turn it a little bit, you see green, in s-lcd2 do not happen.

I'm just curious! Does HTC mini has a notification light? I looked over videos and articles but nobody mentions it.. As Galaxy S4 mini doesn't has one, i don't wanna go for it, Cz i had enough with my S2 already!

Droid Mini > HTC One Mini & Galaxy S4 Mini Motorola did excellently with the Razr M and i expect no less with the next iteration.

Design and screen resolution is what you feel and what you see in real life every day when you use the device. Those are 2 huge minuses in my book and its a hell of a lot more important than benchmark scores especially when fluidity is not an issue.

Size comparison? IPhone win hands down :)

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.

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 :-)

Please compare S4 mini, HTC one mini and Xperia SP! :)

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