HTC recently announced its latest flagship product, the HTC One Mini, the smaller version of HTC One. Considering the range, the next best option would be the Samsung S4 Mini. We give you the vital stats of these phones and their differences so that you can make your pick.
Talking of the body, the HTC One Mini body is mostly aluminium as compared to Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini with its all-plastic body except the Gorilla Glass front. The sides of HTC One Mini’s are plastic rather than metal which acts as a ‘bumper’ that sucks up any kind of impact when you drop the phone. Because of the metal, the HTC One Mini is a little heavier than the Galaxy S4 Mini (20g). Again, HTC One Mini is slightly thicker than the Galaxy S4 Mini – 9.3mm against 8.9mm.
Both, Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and HTC One Mini have 4.3-inch screens. Going beyond the screen size, the HTC One Mini has a Super LCD-3 display of 720p resolution, while the Samsung Galaxy S4 is a Super AMOLED screen of qHD (950 x 540 pixel) resolution.
Both the phones are Snapdragon 400 dual-core and have Krait 300 cores, seen in the full-fat Galaxy S4. Both the phones have only two processor cores instead of four as seen in all the big brother phones.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini runs on a processor of 1.7GHz as compared to HTC One Mini which runs at 1.4GHz. The Samsung has 1.5GB while the One Mini has a rather ordinary 1GB.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini phone has a Micro SD memory card slot, hidden under its plastic battery cover, but the HTC One Mini does not. But, HTC One Mini has more internal memory of 16GB, twice that of Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini i.e. 8 GB.
Both the phones run on the latest Android software of Jelly Bean 4.2.2. However, the phones run on different interfaces. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini uses the latest version of TouchWiz, which is very similar to the software used in all the latest Galaxy-series phones. HTC’s One Mini uses HTC Sense UI.
Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini has a 8-megapixel sensor, LED flash, 1.9MP secondary sensor. While HTC One Mini has a 4-megapixel UltraPixel sensor f/2.0, LED flash, 1.6MP secondary sensor.
Both the phones are promising; with Samsung S4 Mini being more feature loaded and HTC One Mini with its superior build. Let you know what you think of these phones in the comments below.
