HTC One Mini is an interesting surrogate of another fantastic flagship device. High Tech Computer Corporation (HTC) may not be among the major players in the Kenyan Smartphone market. It is, however, globally renowned for its skilled workmanship on its devices.

Design                          

Dimensions: 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm

Weight: 130g

The HTC One Mini looks a lot like its mentor, the HTC One. Just like the Sony Xperia Z1 compact, the HTC One Mini is more of a compact version of a flagship device rather than being a ‘mini’ watered down version.

This is evident by the awesome build quality of the HTC One Mini. The device has a cool brushed metal finish, a feature that is notably missing in the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini and the LG G2 Mini. This stunning feature that places the HTC One Mini a spot close to the beautiful Huawei Ascend P6.

Display

Screen Size: 4.3 inches

Screen Resolution: 720 x 1280 pixels

Screen Resolution Density: 342 ppi

Screen Protection: Corning Gorilla Glass 3

The HTC One Mini display is a paltry 0.4 inches smaller than that of the HTC One. This is quite a small difference, and thus there is a striking similarity between the two devices.

The HTC One Mini has a considerably better screen resolution density compared to the S4 Mini (342 ppi vs. 266 ppi). This is despite the fact that the two devices have exactly the same display size. The HTC One Mini Resolution density, however, matches the one found on the Xperia Compact Z1.

Hardware

Performance

CPU: Dual-core 1.4 GHz Krait 200

RAM: 1 GB

GPU: Adreno 305

The HTC one has the least powerful CPU in all mini versions of Android flagship devices. This is quite a disappointment considering that the Sony Xperia Z1 compact and the LG G2 mini both feature super-fast quad core processors.

Memory

Internal Memory: 16GB storage

Card Slot: No

Operating System: Android OS, v4.2.2

Camera

Rear Camera: 4 MP

Front Facing Camera: 1.6 MP

LED: Yes

The 4MP Camera is exactly similar to the one found on the HTC One. An 8MP Camera is now pretty much the standard for most mid-range devices. However, there is an exception to this. Research shows that image quality does not always depend on the Mega Pixel metric.

Several other camera aspects such sensor technology used to determine the quality of the image captured. Just like its surrogate, the HTC One Mini takes some decent images and can even capture motion at 1080p resolution.

Battery Life

Battery Capacity: 1800 mAh battery

The HTC One Mini has a battery capacity similar to the one found on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. This by the way is not specifically a highlight considering the 2440 mAh and the 2300 mAh batteries found the G2 Mini and Z1 Compact respectively.
