HTC One mini configuration details: Beautiful glitter but overpriced $ 600
Maybe mini Smartphone is becoming a more mainstream mobile manufacturers apply. After the mini Galaxy S3, S4 Galaxy mini or iPad mini so now we have one more new recruits come from Taiwanese phone firm HTC. Recently, after much speculation, as well as previous leaks, HTC has officially launched a shortened version of the super smartphone HTC One mini "hit".
However, recently a number of European countries have announced the price for HTC One mini with lowest price no less than $ 600. That is causing many users feel deprived because whether they are willing to spend more money in order to own HTC One mini with much better configuration. So the higher the selling price so then what HTC One mini is attempting to or this really is an attractive phone. The following is a detailed assessment of the One mini, "junior" super HTC One mini.
Regarding configuration, HTC One mini is equipped with dual-core Snapdragon processor 400 speed of 1.4 Ghz accompanying Adreno 305 core 1 GB RAM graphics and touch screen 4.3-inch Super LCD2 resolution 720x1.280 pixel at 341 ppi pixel density.
The phone will be equipped with BSI sensor camera sensor size 1/3 inch, f/2.0 aperture 4 megapixel resolution under similar technology UltraPixel HTC One of the front camera with 1.6 megapixel resolution. Battery integrated HTC One mini is a little slightly lower capacity to 1,800 mAh. One mini will only have a single version of the memory is 16 GB and unfortunately the machine is not supported microSD memory card slot.
In terms of connectivity, the handset is equipped with HTC's one mini 3G, LTE, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. The machine will run Android OS 4.2.2 Jelly Bean at the factory with a custom interface over Sense UI 5.0.
Just like what the name reflects, HTC One mini owners elder identical design, but HTC One mini compact and lighter. There is very little difference in terms of style here except own One mini thick rubber rim around the edge 4 and the layout is slightly different clusters camera a little later than his senior.
First, in terms of size, HTC One mini basic parameters are 132 x 63.2 x 9.3 mm actually not very different from the size of 137.4 x 68.2 x 9.3 mm of HTC One mini. But that's just the right feeling when holding the machine in the palm of your hand to realize mini compact than its predecessor, this impact is due to the device width was narrowed. Besides, weighs only about 122 g equivalent iPhone 5.
Once exposed to sun, exuding One mini has a beauty and elegance of a certain high-end aluminum unibody design. But the characteristics of aluminum is easy if you have collision smashed, so HTC has used a polycarbonate border around the edge to limit the damage when users accidentally drop the device. This is certainly a commendable idea.
The front of the Mini One language remains the design and style of the Butterfly One S. It uses Gorilla Glass scratch-resistant glass 3 users create peace of mind for small scratches if there is no easy way to see it.
The top and bottom of the screen are arranged 2 BoomSound range speakers. One mini is only 2 keys are capacitive buttons Back and Home keys.
Like HTC One, the back side is also designed one of the "eat money" One mini. Beautiful aluminum shell material, a slight look into. Besides, there's no point edge design knob to create a true seamless monolithic product. Quality processing machine is a mini One bright spot, you will be very difficult to find the three-qua not grinding or creaking sound when squeezed.

Edge of the HTC One mini is equipped with the power button and a 3.5 headphone jack microphone. Meanwhile, the bottom edge is the microUSB port and the 2nd mic.
The left side of the machine just SIM tray is placed right side volume key phrases.
Not equipped with Full HD screen as brothers, but with smaller dimensions 720p resolution should still be able to help One mini display everything quite detailed, you almost can not see the pixels or notes porous particles in normal distance. In addition, viewing angle and color on the phone's screen mini is too great to say. Whether you're surfing the web, view photos or videos, the colors are very natural, vivid depth and polished, partly thanks to the HTC white balance adjustment on the One Mini slightly warmer than HTC One mini.
Also, One mini also screen brightness and contrast is very good, even excellent than One smartphone. If you do not freak out a bit of resolution, you can rest assured that One mini is one of the devices own best current screen. Only one small drawback that you will have to endure when it is used Mini One screen is slightly more reflective, this will make it difficult to use the computer in the sun.
With sky-high prices, but the phone HTC One mini owns a hardware configuration framework rather "remote". Machine runs only 400 Snapdragon dual-core 1.4 Ghz speed accompanying Adreno 305 graphics core with 1 GB RAM. This makes the One mini hardware only on par with a high level of current phones. Benchmark results also showed that there is a relatively large gap (twice) between mini and HTC One One.
5 Sense interface works very "smooth" on HTC One mini.
HTC One mini only 11,434 points AnTuTu benchmark, while this figure is 22 678 HTC One.
Similarly, in the Quadrant test, HTC One mini is 6,048 points, compared with One-half (11,746 points).
In performance tests SunSpider web browser, and the ability of each of the mini One fairly average but not too low (the lower the better).
Overview of international experience, the One mini pretty good handle almost all of the basic tasks. Users will rarely encounter lag situation on HTC One mini slightest shock. Surfing machine performance is relatively stable, more pop tab, view flash videos or scroll up / down to have a certain texture. However, with modest RAM, just pop a few applications and 3D games are already in a state machine "out of RAM" resulting performance is slowed down dramatically.
HTC One mini camera is also equipped with similar technology UltraPixel HTC One mini with a resolution of 4 megapixels and sensor size 1/3 inch, f/2.0 aperture. The interface on the camera is generally quite simple mini with 2 touch buttons to change modes between stills and video.HTC One mini supports some basic features such as HTC Zoe shoot, shoot HDR, panorama ... but unfortunately not equipped machine features optical image stabilization OIS as HTC One mini. Therefore, when recording video or taking pictures you'll feel better shake hands.
As for image quality, the photos taken from HCT One mini is not too different from the HTC One mini. Due to the use of low-resolution camera image should be no higher level of detail, much of the crop is broken. In addition, the images also appear noise when shooting, even in well-lit conditions. Color image seems to be leaning slightly cold gamut.
Battery capacity 1,800 mAh removable battery and can not replace actually doing lovers HTC One mini worry about the usage of the machine. However, it seems that HTC has overcome the disadvantages that the man he had previously acquired. Test the battery life on the One mini led us somewhat reassuring because the machine can operate with average intensity of about 40 hours to recharge the battery.
Specifically, you can talk continuously for 12 hours on a One mini , surf the web with Wi-Fi connection in the screen brightness to 40% over 8 hours of continuous video playback, and nearly 7 ½ hours. This is the result of mini truly praiseworthy though it can not be considered as the most outstanding figures.
Undeniably still inherit the design has been confirmed by HTC One mini helps brand version users easily mesmerized at first sight. However, if you are satisfied with the flashy clothes outside too much, users have felt the inadequacy of the internal configuration bundled price of HTC One mini. I must say that the price is too harsh for a mid-range configuration.
Besides, compared to the super-One mini, HTC One mini smartphone also features streamlined that we can be considered a weak point immediately following lists:
- Chip weak processor and RAM
- No support features optical image stabilization OIS
- Does not support an external memory card, available memory is 12 GB
- No NFC and MHL
- No driver support features in IR blaster.
Although these features are not too many issues important but less RAM and storage memory makes sure users fret. Maybe if HTC fixed price, the more comfortable your chances of success will be One mini is high but the $ 600 could mean the end for One mini in the mass marke.
