HTC has already made official the HTC One Mini 2, the compact version of its current flagship, the HTC One M8. Such devices are in response to the demand for smartphones with more manageable sizes. But it is also a way to have the experience of using a top end to a slightly more affordable price. The HTC One Mini 2 copies the design of its big brother, as well as some of its features Exclusive. The compact model has slightly adjusted performance. Let’s see all the differences between these two smartphones
The screen size is one of the most significant differences between the two models. The HTC One M8 assembled a panel of five inches with FullHD 1080p resolution and a density of 441 ppi, the configuration in almost all high-end art. The HTC One Mini 2 reduces the diagonal to 4.5 inches, enough to make it much more manageable, but without losing the benefits of a wide-screen. Its resolution also descends specifically to the standard 720p HD and with a density of 326 ppi. Both models have screens Super LCD (Super LCD2 for One and Super Mini 2 LCD3 for HTC One M8) with a depth of 16 million colors and with a layer of glass resistant Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The design is one of the highlights of the HTC One M8 and HTC One Mini 2 decal so perfectly. The metal gives them a sophisticated touch and somewhat aggressive thanks to the brushed metal texture. They have a shape of rounded edges which the hand is well adapted, although in the case of HTC One Mini 2 is more convenient to handle because it is more compact. The size difference is not excessive, but noticeable. Both have the HTC Boomsound speakers in front and are available in dark gray, silver and gold.
The camera is the most prominent change HTC One Mini 2. So far HTC had opted for the system Ultrapixel in its One range, but with HTC One Mini 2 has opted for a conventional BSI sensor with 13 megapixel resolution. It features LED flash, lens aperture f/2.2, face detection and geo-tagging. The front camera is the meeting point between the two models, and is equipped with the two one five megapixel sensor designed to make selfies (self pics) with good quality. Both the front and rear of the camera can record videos FulllHD to 30 frames per second.
The HTC One M8 itself that has the system Ultrapixel, consisting of larger pixels to capture more light, but the sensor has four-megapixel resolution. Their lens is brighter (f/2.0) and has an optical stabilizer that improves outcomes in low light and also prevents shakiness in videos. The most outstanding aspect of the camera of the HTC One M8 is that it has a second lens that allows you to record information about the depth, so can apply effects by distinguishing between figure and background (blur, filters,…).. The terminal can record video in slow motion and with effect HDR. The two have the application HTC Zoe with Video Highligths, which automatically creates videos from the contents of our album.
Both models have the sound system HTC BoomSound, consisting of two stereo speakers located on the front. They also have a system of noise cancellation for better sound calls, minimizing background noise. The HTC One M8 is the flagship of the brand, so it is not surprising that has a more powerful processor. The terminal is fitted with a Snapdragon 801, with four cores running at 2.3 Ghz frequency and supported by 2GB of memory RAM. The HTC One Mini 2 features a Snapdragon 400, also with four cores, but running at 1.2 Ghz and 1 GB of RAM.
