Full review

 

I really like the HTC One Mini :)

 

It's about five millimetres shorter and narrower than its bigger sibling, HTC One. The thickness is exactly the same at 9.3 mm.

 

Overall, I'm looking forward to more powerful and smaller devices, because tbh I really didn't appreciate the previous trend of putting the most powerful hardware inside ever bigger, humongous phones (4.5" + screen size) while smaller phones were suffering in performance.

 

Fortunately, the smaller phones are now catching up in productivity!

Wow those phones are small. I love my HTC One, and can't switch to these 'mini' versions. It's good for people who would want a smaller phone. I used to think a big phone (anything 4"+) was stupid, but once you use them, it's not so bad. 

 

I'm liking the HTC One mini!

Give me the original HTC Hero (3.2") with the latest hardware inside and a modern DPI screen and I'll buy two of them right off the bat!

I love the size of both devices, but the downside of the HTC is that the outer shell itself is more plastic, while the Samsung still feels as sturdy as its bigger brother.

 

I had a quick go on the S4 mini today, and I say it's very nice, and it does show how Samsung have established themselves in the market in terms of quality.
