Bigger phones with high resolution screen have longer standby / shorter screen usage.
Smaller phones have shorter standby / but impressive screen time (provided its low end screen)
how is this compare to sony xperia sp?
and how about the price....anyone know about the price range for this htc one mini??

Just so that the smaller body can pack in a much smaller battery the power consumption has to come down. One thing they could have done better was to keep the memory 32GB.
I just can´t understand why the "mini" versions are so different than "normal" versions. This phone has nothing to do with one, the features are so different. And sadly, if we compare with s4 mini, the one mini is worse. it seems HTC is always one step behind Samsung. Look at the s4 mini, it has the same size but the cpu is better, ram is better, front camera is better, almost everything is better. for the HTC lovers, just like me, this is frustrating.

Fighting the lag lie, 18 Jul 2013Lag in Android has always been a lie. Started by jealous WP users with slow old dual cores.Dude you are hilarious! Have you ever had a WP? A dual core in WP is way better than 8 cores in Android! And yes Android it still lags and breaks!

Some people don't have bi gorilla hands.... moreS4 mini vs One mini:
1. Sd card vs no card
2. Clock higher cpu vs lower clock cpu
3. lower resolution vs higher resolution
4. ram 1.5 vs 1
5. lighter vs heavy(might be better built quality)
6. 8mp vs 4mp (i trust one mini is better)
7. 1900mAH vs 1800mAH.
So some trade off here and there... price is key to each success
that is actually hilarious.. yes it has a 720p screen. but AGAIN it is TOTALLY outclassed in almost every way by the GALAXY S4 mini. which firstly actually is a smaller version. this One "mini" is about 5% smaller than the full HTC ONE! look at the picture comparison! so yet again you get a smaller device but with same size screen with the S4mini... along with a better processor, more ram, expandable storage, better camera. AGAIN.. why go with the HTC? for its aluminium? lol
The Xperia ZR or SP would qualify as a perfect downsized flagship
if only they were a lot smaller with 4 to 4.3 inch screen instead of 4.5
Fighting the lag lie, 18 Jul 2013Lag in Android has always been a lie. Started by jealous WP users with slow old dual cores.Lag on Android has always been there. It never left. You just got accustomed to it so you never notice. I know because I have an HTC One and a Lumia 920 to compare it to. My Lumia 920 is flawless.
16GB is a bummer. All these 'Mini' versions don't resemble their flagship versions a bit except for their looks. This is marketing deception. Go get the LG Nexus 4 instead and don't let yourself be fooled.

Also it may be preemtive with the Iphone5s rumours on 4.3 screen size
this isn't the ideal example but see this link.
