HTC One Mini 2 versus Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini

26
HTC One Mini 2, Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini

How do HTC and Samsung's miniature flagships measure up?

The vast number of mid-range Android devices on the market means there's no shortage of choice for those wanting a smaller, less expensive handset. This year, both HTC and Samsung have fielded "mini" versions of their popular high-end offerings in this form factor, both with 4.5-inch displays and similar hardware loadouts.

As is the case at the high end, HTC and Samsung's mid-level offerings reflect the differences in the two companies' approaches to smartphone design. HTC leads with a flashy metallic chassis and carefully considered software; Samsung is all about expandability and features — what the phone can do more than how it looks.

So it's time to pit these mid-range "minis" against each other. Joins us after the break to see how the Galaxy S5 Mini and HTC One Mini 2 compare.

HTC announces Desire 510 with LTE, mid-range specs

HTC Desire 510

Another spot filled in the Desire lineup with nice hardware design and Sense 6

Building on its mid-range Desire brand, HTC today announced the LTE-equipped Desire 510 for a worldwide launch. Slotting in notably lower than the Desire 610 announced earlier this year but much higher than last year's Desire 500, the 510 is a 4.7-inch device with a fresh plastic design in either white or grey.

The Desire 510 pulls design notes from both the Desire 816 and 610, but harbors much lower-end specs to hit a more budget-friendly price point. The 4.7-inch display's resolution is just 480 x 854 (FWVGA), backed up by a Snapdragon 410 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage (SDcard expandable) and a simple 5MP camera — but thankfully that's powering Android 4.4 and Sense 6, the latest software available.
