Thanks in advance
Having a removalbe battery is an outright advantage.
I own the M7 currently. I'm sorry, but there is absolutely nothing about the HTC One Mini's design that is "more premium", then the Alpha. The phone is larger in every direction, while sporting a smaller screen? Well done. Also, HTC's current design language, it's larger radius curved corners, stretched look, and rounded back make it look like a toy. And this doesn't even cover the fact that the Mini's performance is a joke by comparison. There is really no comparison. One is a toy, the other is an ultra thin, high end performance device with better battery life. The Alpha out performed the S5 and M8. What are we even talking about?
Both devices are over priced and over rated for what they can really do verses a top mobile that is 2 years old.
AnonD-263286, 17 Sep 2014This is a mismatch. Like mike tyson vs a girl. Compare Alpha to iPhone 6. Oops, another mismatch!Yes you'll see the iphone represented next ti its samsung rival in a picture as usual comprising of a photoshoped iphone made to make its ugly screen proportions disappear.Remember the article called FIGHT with the 5s and the samo,, any one choosing a phone, already, before reading the article, had a mental picture that the tiny iphone screen would be showing its content to you in an experience equal to the big samsung phone screen. The other day the grotesquely proportioned new iphones were pshopped to look like they were inline with the competing phones, the thing the iphone want comparing to in an article really is the light saber out of star wars because you don't know what either of them are going to look like in the next frame.
AnonD-249431, 17 Sep 2014Do a comparison between Z3C vs alpha. Pointless really, no-one buys sony phones anymore even all there fans are on samo related threads
AnonD-89109, 18 Sep 2014Damn, want the Alpha, too bad it runs on TouchWiz :(Yep, it runs perfectly on touchwizz, touchwizz is perfect it's complete its feature packed its unmissable countless millions of us don't know what we'd do without it, all those reputed mili second you might loose in a year, na , big deal we spend more time in one session at gsma than you'd save in a year with another Os, ol touchy is arguably the best there is.
AnonD-262556, 18 Sep 2014troller detected... m sure u r a pessimist... u alwaz points out negativity of a person or thing...He'll never forgive you for what your boss did to Custer.
I don't understand how your battery test scores work, the Alpha destroys the HTC in every category but only wins by 52 to 50, makes no sense.
"we gave the One mini 2 high praise despite being a bit too big for its screen size. That's partly down to the BoomSound speakers"
Why does GSMarena always forget that disastrous useless space wasting HTC logo on the front with that no use black bar. It's not the speakers that make it so big, it's that stupid logo that has no use whatsoever.
What about low light photo/video?
Xperia z3 compact vs. Galaxy alpha is the real competition. Htc one mini 2 is a mid-ranger phone, so the specs are not much superb compare to the galaxy alpha :)
GSMA please compare z3 compact with galaxy alpha. And iphone 6 with z3 compact.
darkgamer, 17 Sep 2014S5 is water resistant and has usb 3.0USB 3 is a feature. I've seen phones that were never advertised as water resistant handle the same depths as Samsungs. Just because it has a certificate....
"Demanding audiophiles" would need more memory!
Loubielou, 18 Sep 2014O.k the Galaxy Alpha might be Samsung First Metal Bodied Phone,but its the lost of Micro Sd Ca... moreIt has a removable battery. No SD and disappointing 32GB onboard storage is what disappoints.
Anonymous, 18 Sep 2014Root it and install a custom ROM. Problem solved.Would only be possible with the snapdragon version so be sure to get that. Unless you want a modified touchwiz ROM. You can get that for both
Bigger screen should NOT be an advantage if it's supposed to be a MINI! When people are looking for smaller phone/screen, the smaller one should be the better one, unless it's too small like 3.5".
