In this video we do a comparison of the Sense user interface on the HD Mini and the HD2. While the experience is similar, the lower screen resolution on the HD Mini really makes a difference in how much information can fit on the screen. Then, we dive into the web browser on the HD Mini, finding it to be a capable browsing machine, but sadly, the multitouch feels a bit “numb”. Finally, we go through a few third party apps to see how they look in HVGA resolution. Unfortunately, several very popular Windows Phone apps that we tried like Skyfire and Spb Mobile Shell just didn’t want to work with the odd screen resolution. It still baffles us why HTC would release a device with a screen resolution that could compromise third party app functionality.
Coming up soon we’ll have the full review of the HTC HD Mini! Want to see more HD Mini videos?
