HTC One Mini vs Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini – Compare Specs


Although you are looking for a small sized smartphone, but you definitely need a one that runs on a powerful processor. Like I always say, a smartphone isn’t smart without smart apps. And to run smart apps in high number, you need a powerful processor.

Galaxy S4 Mini runs on Dual-core 1.7 GHz Krait Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and HTC One Mini runs on a dual core processor (its processor speed is yet not official), but is rumored to have similar configuration.


Just like all other modern day Galaxy series smarphones, S4 Mini has got a Super AMOLED display of 4.3 inches with a picture resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. Whereas HTC One Mini has got a 4.3 inches TFT display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels with HTC Sense UI.

I am a fan of HTC display screens, and even in this case, I believe that HTC wins over Samsung.

Both these smartphones are powered by 2GB RAM. And coming to storage, HTC One Mini comes with 16GB of internal storage without any micro SD slot. Whereas Galaxy S4 Mini comes with 8 GB of internal storage with microSD slot which is expandable upto 64GB.

On the other hand, One Mini has got a 4 MP camera with a resolution of 2688 x 1520 pixels. Hands down, its the Galaxy S4 Mini which has won this innings.
