Review HTC One mini »
The HTC One becomes a one-hand phone with the "mini" version.

The new 4.3-inch screen Android phone is slimmer by about 0.2 inches compared to the regular HTC One with a 4.7-inch screen. At 2.49 inches, the width is much more manageable than most other flagship phones coming out with larger than life screen sizes.

Compared to the ultimate one-hand phone, the iPhone 5, which has 2.31-inch width and 0.30-inch depth, the HTC One Mini feels bulky on one hand. Even compared to the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini, which has 2.41-inch width and 0.35-inch depth, the HTC One Mini is tiny-bit less comfortable with one-hand operations.

But the differences are minuscule, and consumers would pick the phones by their preferences in features and design.

On the features front, the HTC One mini is comparable to other mid-range phones: a dual-core, 1.4GHz processor powers the unit, with 1GB of RAM. Samsung's Galaxy S4 mini stayed slightly above the fray with a dual-core 1.7GHz processor with 1.5GB RAM. On most other features, the HTC One mini is pretty much in-line with other mid-range phones.

Some of the HTC One's unique features and design elements trickled down to the mini version. The HTC UltraPixel Camera and HTC BoomSound are excellent.

When the mini goes on sale later this year, the pricing should reflect the differences in specs against Samsung and other mid-range phones. If the price is right, the HTC One mini would be a great one-hand phone.
