Some people say that the 13 megapixel camera on other smart phones is a lot better than the 4 mega ultra pixel on HTC.
Now HTC double the 4 mega ultra pixel camera on HTC ONE 2014.
And puts the 13 megapixel on its mini-version...
:D if you know what I mean...
Man, I just love the way HTC names their phones. "HTC one mini two". Wonder what's next,,, "One mini two three XL"???
Anomynous, 02 May 2014I say its the CPU, very poor singlethreaded performance. Cortex A7 and 1.4GHz, thats so weak. ... moreThanks for the info, would you say the quad Cortex A7 and 1.4GHz in the new mini(donkey strength as you put it) is it better or worse than the One S Dual core 1.5 S4 Krait. Love this One S and its slimness and overall size and performance.
2x, 02 May 2014Lack of innovation? So the dual frontal speakers who had them before on a smartphone? Who else... moreThe thing is they did already with the HTC One 2013. Innovation requires a step up from not only competitors but from themselves, consumers are not willing to spend money on a new more expensive phone if it does not bring anything new to the table beyond its cheaper older version.
Maskakos, 03 May 2014Colours and contrast are more important than pixels when it comes to watching movies on TV so ... moreYou said both, that his comment was sensible, and then said it was questionable, so I'm kinda confused!
Anyway, I agree with you about the contrast and colour part, of course they matter big time for TVs, monitors and all sorts of display related stuffs, but the difference between 1080p and 720p is huge! The PPI will be way higher, thus much more crisper texts, images.
I personally laugh at the idea of providing more than 1080p resolution for tiny displays like 5" or so, and you will find my comments regarding the same, but his comment was dumb, and meaningless.
This phone's selling point will be affected due to it's 720p display, if hTC stick with 1080p it'd sell better. So that's a bad decision.
Saurav Ghosh, 02 May 2014Lol, you watch a 32" TV with 720P resolution and find it great, so I don't even care what... moreColours and contrast are more important than pixels when it comes to watching movies on TV so his comment almost makes sense. Most video content is still 720p anyway. When riped from Bluray the difference between 720 and 1080 is small unless you have a BIG TV. The problem is that TVs that had only 720p at 32'' are so OLD or very low end models that usually don't have good picture quality so his statemant is questionable.
That beeing said, PPI is very important for monitors, smartphones and tablets because they display text and there PPI makes a huge difference. I still think that we don't need more than 1080p on sreen less than 6''.
I hope that those specs won't be the real ones as it' seems to be crab
Only a 1GB of RAM wtf ???? And nothing mentioned about the msc (micro sd card )
And what were you thinking of when you made it quad core 1.4 ????!!!
In this case the Sony Xperia z 1 compact rocks and rules check out their amazing specs on this website and you will understand what do I mean it's almost identical as same as the Z1
Now if HTC want to succeed they have to make the M8 mini with the same specs but just in a smaller screen size.
SCULA, 02 May 2014fail is your brain, 720p for 4,5" is more than enough. 1080p is usless up to 5", whe... moreLol, you watch a 32" TV with 720P resolution and find it great, so I don't even care what you say, nor does anybody else.
Jeez, from where these kids come around nowadays!
Do we know if the headphone jack is on the bottom like the M8?
If it is, and has expandable memory I'm interested.
mike, 02 May 2014no one will care about the lack of duo camera.. the cause of HTCs downfall will be lack of inn... moreLack of innovation? So the dual frontal speakers who had them before on a smartphone? Who else has a 2.5v amplifier for the headphone jack? Who else has a 90% metal body? Who else has a depth sensing dual sensor camera? You can diss HTC for many things but at least they try to innovate.
What kind of dope they smoking ?? Every thing about One Mini 2 is better than One M8 except for CPU thing.
mike, 02 May 2014no one will care about the lack of duo camera.. the cause of HTCs downfall will be lack of inn... moreActually most lowered their screen PPI on their latest flagship. S4 -> S5, Z1 - Z2, M7 - M8 . They all have Full HD (1080p) but the latest models have a little bit more screen surface so PPI goes down. The pixel desnity is still so high that no sharpness is lost for the human eye. So lowering the PPI is not bizzare, you are just dump to understand.
