Mini Wars - HTC One Mini vs Motorola Droid Mini

The HTC One Mini and Motorola Droid Mini were announced in July this year by their respective manufacturers as alternatives for their flagship devices.

In this article, we're going to compare all the key features of these Android phones.

Motorola droid mini vs htc one mini

The HTC One Mini sports an aluminum body with a polycarbonate frame around the edges, whereas the Motorola Droid Mini has a polycarbonate body with a Kevlar frame. As far as the dimensions are concerned, the former measures 132 x 63.2 x 9.3 mm, 122 grams while the Droid Mini measures 121.3 x 61.3 x 8.9 mm, 130 grams. In terms of build quality and styling, the One Mini has the advantage as it has a stunningly premium design which is robust as well as attractive.

Both the phones are equipped with 4.3-inch diagonal displays with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and multi-touch functionality. On one hand, the One Mini sports a Super LCD2 capacitive touchscreen panel with Corning's Gorilla Glass 3 protection; while on the other hand, the Droid Mini has a LCD display with Corning's first generation Gorilla Glass protection.

The Motorola Droid Mini comes with a 10 megapixel rear-facing autofocus camera and a 2 megapixel front facing camera whereas the One Mini rolls out with a 4 megapixel "Ultrapixel" front-facing camera and a 1.6 megapixel camera. Both the camera packages are evenly matched in terms of imaging capabilities, but the Ultrapixel camera offers more innovative features like HTC Zoe and better low light performance.

Motorola has packed in a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with a dual-core 1.7 GHz processor, Adreno 320 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. On the other hand, HTC has opted for a slightly older Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with a dual-core 1.4 GHz processor, Adreno 305 GPU and 1 GB of RAM. As you can see, on paper the Motorola Droid Mini has a superior hardware package, but in terms of real life performance, both the phones are evenly matched.

The HTC One Mini runs Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean while the Droid Mini runs a slightly older version of Android i.e. 4.2 Jelly Bean. However, there is hardly any difference between the two in terms of functionality. Both the manufacturers have added their own suite of exclusive apps and features for their respective Minis.

The Droid Mini is powered by a Li-Ion 2000 mAh battery which provides up to 28 hours of usage time. The One Mini has a Li-Po 1800 mAh battery which offers up to 21 hours of usage time.

Bottom Line:
Both the handsets offer the same user experience in terms of software functionality. However, the HTC One Mini edges out the Droid Mini on several fronts like design, camera, display and multimedia features. Also, the latter is only available in the United States, which means customers from other countries won’t be able to purchase it easily.
