Spec Shootout: HTC One vs HTC One Mini

Now that HTC has finally shared with us their plans for the upcoming HTC One Mini, we can take a look and compare it with the original flagship, the HTC One. Please note that HTC themselves mention that some of these specs may change by the time the phone is actually launched but for now they're official.

There are also some unknowns such as the type of screen used and the price of the device once it launches, but we're working hard on getting that info for you.

HTC one mini is way complete than S4 mini IMO. Samsung just plays with numbers. As an HTC One owner, i can imagine how beautiful it is.

The Mini would make a killer Windows Phone! Hopefully that's the predecessor of the 8x for them.

Here's one troll comment for you.

WP8 is dead. OEM's are wondering what exactly to do with the platform. Since I myself own Lumia 520, I do ask people who have WP8 phones about feedback and all unanimously loathe it.

So glad Android and iOS revolution is still continuing. Its a fashion to release a mini variant later and rip people off with higher prices and poor specs. All credit goes to dear Apple and Samsung for their iPad mini and SGS3 Mini.

Your entire reply is my explanation.

Since you are not giving good explanations, we can assume you are one little butthurt fanboy.
Try again..... Harder

Oh god you want me hard? Your a perverted ******! Your lucky I don't sue, I am 8 years old! I hope your mother is proud of your actions, sexually harassing an 8 year old Christian boy growing up in a close knit suburban community! I go to church every Sunday morning with my grandparents! Are you proud of your actions? How about you find some boys your own age! Or girls? I'm just a little innocent underage jailbait boy! Keep your hands off! You disgust me!

Cool story bro

As compared to the 4.7 inch screen of the One, yes.

I would consider that slightly smaller, not mini in comparison.

Mini is just another word for smaller. But HTC One Mini sounds much better than HTC One Smaller.
