Sizing up the HTC One mini

htc-one-mni-one

The idea of the HTC One mini is incredible. A smaller, mid-range device with the same look and feel as the HTC One will certainly be appealing to those who simply can’t handle larger phones. But does the HTC One mini actually live up to it’s name? The HTC One mini’s 132 x 63.2 x 9.25mm size isn’t exactly small. In fact, the HTC One mini is only 3.9% shorter, 7.3% less wide and a mere 0.5% thinner than the HTC One.

So, the HTC One mini isn’t really mini at all. When the HTC EVO 4G was introduced, it was the largest Android phone to hit the market, measuring 122 x 66 x 13mm. Yes, it was wider and much thicker than the HTC One mini, but it was shorter by a good 10mm. While the HTC One mini isn’t exactly small when compared to the HTC One, the 4.3-inch display will make the device a lot more manageable with one-handed use.

Do you think the HTC One mini is small enough? How small should a phone be before OEMs are allowed to classify it as a “mini” device?
