    HTC and Samsung are directly competing in the high-end/flagship segment with the One and the Galaxy S 4. However, the battle is ongoing in the mid-range sector too, with the HTC One Mini, which we're currently reviewing, and the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. As we like to put it, the HTC One Mini is for the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini what the HTC One is for the Samsung Galaxy S 4: fierce competition. But there's more to the raison d'être of the One Mini than to simply compete with the S4 Mini. It is there to address a specific segment of the market; it is a niche product. It is for all those who ...

    Every time I sit down to write about HTC, and the latest misstep the company's taking, I feel compelled to point out my generally positive feelings for the manufacturer – ever since the HTC Dream, I've associated the brand with platform-leading Android hardware. Of course, HTC sure seems to have put out a concerted effort in the years that followed to sully that image, but the last year or so has been building up to a period of contrition for the company; it really seemed to get the message behind why users weren't sticking around, and had me believing that it was willing to change. So ...

    You don’t have to be a rocket scientist, and you don’t have to analyze and compare these two phones too much, to realize that a mini phone, the HTC One mini, is larger than Apple’s flagship, the iPhone 5. If we want to be fair and honest, we’d say that the iPhone 5 is the mini phone among the two. The difference between the iPhone 5 and the HTC One Mini is bigger than the difference between the One Mini and the One. To draw a conclusion is more difficult than one would think. Aside from the eternal iOS vs Android debate, these two phones are different, and behave differently. Check ...

    As we're looking closer and closer at all aspects of the HTC One mini, after our initial unboxing and comparison with the One, a press render got leaked of the allegedly upcoming AT&T variant of the mini phone. As you can see in the image above, it is identical to the international version, with the addition of the AT&T logo on the back, on top of the Beats Audio branding. Once it will become official, you will be able to opt for basically a smaller One, with a 4.3-inch 720p screen,  and Snapdragon 400 CPU with two cores, clocked at 1.4GHz, helped by 1GB of RAM, 16GB storage, 4MP ...

    You can almost think the HTC One mini is an HTC One, if you don’t know what to look for. We'll show you in our HTC One Mini vs HTC One comparison! That’s not only because it sports the same design and materials, but also because it is not much smaller than the HTC One. That is, on paper, and compared side-by-side. However, when you hold the phone and you start to actually use it, you will instantly realize that it is a mini version of the flagship. Everything else is apparently the same to the untrained eye. Upon close examination you’ll see that the power button no longer acts as an ...

    Before our HTC One Mini unboxing, we’ll try to get into HTC’s mind for a bit, and think of the reasons behind the HTC One Mini. It is an alternative to the One flagship, which might be too big, or too expensive for some. And, let’s not forget, since the One directly competes with the Samsung Galaxy S 4, the One Mini will continue the tradition and try to beat the Galaxy S4 mini. Before you check out our HTC One Mini unboxing video below, we'll remind you of its specs: the processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU with two cores, clocked at 1.4GHz, helped by 1GB of RAM. Internal ...

    Can this be true? As Brandon and I were discussing Motorola's new Droid line-up, I can't lie, my initial reaction was to not care. I've been so disappointed in the past by last-year's Droids that I really didn't care enough to even gaze at the spec sheet of these phones. I was expecting the same story, where the MAXX was a battery phone, the Ultra was the "so called" flagship and then the mini was just another watered-down variant that's not even worth your consideration. I was wrong. At Pocketnow, most of us have always wanted one type of phone that didn't really exist until now. There's ...

    The HTC One Mini makes a few sacrifices that keep it from being simply a smaller version of the HTC One, but even with the hits it takes, still manages to pack a decent, modern processor, and a very high-res yet petite display. HTC also backed away from the original One a tad when it comes to the Mini's design, and while there's still plenty of metal, the handset's sides are now formed by easier-to-work-with plastic components. That means that while the One strongly resembles its big brother, it's got a look to it that's still uniquely its own. Now that the One Mini is fully official, and ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about LG's confirmation that the G2 is coming soon, and that they're dropping the "Optimus" name. Android 4.3 makes the headlines next as it was spotted running on a Google Nexus 4. The Nexus 7 is next as leaked photos and video show us how the tablet will look when it gets announced, hopefully next week. Apple takes the spotlight next as their new patent points to a full display that's capable of fingerprint scanning. We end today's show talking about the launch of the HTC One mini, and what this means for HTC fans. All this and more after the ...

    Never let it be said that Multimedia Manager Jaime Rivera isn't a trouper. In the hot Honduras heat, with no power and no A/C (and, incidentally, no shirt), he still manages to show up on-time to the Pocketnow Weekly podcast. That right there is some broadcast heroism, folks. No matter what Taylor Martin's new-office excuses are. But that's not what we're here to talk about. No, we're about a week overdue for an audio-only examination of Nokia's newest flagship, the Lumia 1020: we'll cover it's high, low, and so-so points, and debate just how much action a phone has to bring to be worth ...

    Just as teased yesterday on Twitter, HTC announces One Mini today. The "miniature" version of the HTC One is in the spotlight, to fight the Samsung Galaxy S 4 miniature, the Galaxy S4 mini. There's a 4.3-inch, 720p display on the phone, with a PPI rating of 341. For those interested, the phone measures 132 x 63.2 x 9.25mm and 122g. The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU with two cores, clocked at 1.4GHz, helped by 1GB of RAM. Internal storage is 16GB, and the Ultrapixel camera, alongside BoomSound, is in.

    The HTC One Mini is slowly becoming a certainty with all the rumors and leaks we've seen recently. The direct competitor for the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini should land any time now, as an official HTC UK teaser seems to indicate just that. The status update posted yesterday says: "We have a ‘little’ bit of news tomorrow". Now, since we don't know of any other HTC plans that warrant the usage of the word "little", we instantly though of the HTC One Mini, even if it isn't such a mini phone. We'll keep you posted as it (or something) should happen today. Source: HTC (Twitter)

    Last month, right around the time when HTC announced the Butterfly S, I wrote a little about the relationship between Butterfly phones and the HTC One, and applauded how HTC seemed to be setting up a pair of parallel tracks for these models – the One in metal, the Butterfly S in plastic – yet both running what's essentially the same hardware. While there was still the problem of the different phones being sold in different markets, the idea intrigued me, and I felt that HTC might be able to find more success by selling both phones alongside each other – really give shoppers a ...
