Samsung has officially announced the little brother of its brand new flagship: Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini. The S4 mini as the name suggests is the mini version of the Galaxy S4 released earlier on in 2013. The company has made the phone slimmer and lighter hoping to make it more appealing for the people that considered the original S4 bulky. According to JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Communication Division at Samsung Electronics, “we want to give people more choices with GALAXY S4 mini, similar look & feel of GALAXY S4 for more compact and practical usages.”

The company has slashed many extra oomph features from the phones such as cutting down screen size and reducing resolution to reduce the price of the phone. The phone comes with a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that offers ~256 ppi pixel density. The weight of the phone has also been reduced to 107 grams for the 3G Model and 108 grams for the LTE Model. The device houses audio jack on the top, the volume rocker on the left, the power button on the right and the USB port on the bottom. The camera and loudspeaker grille with the flash are placed on the back.

The device is powered by 1.7 GHz Krait Dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, making it pretty fast and responsive. It also comes with Adreno 305 GPU and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The 3G model comes with 1.5 GB RAM, while the LTE model comes with 2 GB RAM. The phone is offered with 8GB internal storage capacity, which can be extended by 64GB using a microSD card.

The company maintains certain nifty features such as the IR Blaster, S Translator, S Health, S Voice and many other that were available in the original S4. The device also houses a 8MP rear camera and a 1.9 MP HD front camera. The camera comes with features such as Sound&Shot, Panorama Shot and Story Album function. According to the press release, photos taken by the S4 Mini are automatically gathered and saved according to the user’s timeline, geo-tagging information, or a specific event to create a photo album. The phone comes with a removable Li-Ion 1900 mAh battery.

HTC One X was initially announced as the flagship product of the HTC One series. It comes with a 4.7-inch super LCD 2 with 1280 x 720 (HD, 720p) and Corning Gorilla Glass. The HTC comes with Android v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is upgradable to v4.1.1 Jelly Bean. When the HTC One X was launched it was the first phone to be offered with a quad-core processor among the HTC smart phones, making it the fastest HTC phone to date. It includes a 1.5 GHz, quad-core (global version) and 1.5 GHz, dual-core LTE version (USA and selected countries) along with ULP GeForce GPU and 1GB RAM. The phone is offered with non-expandable, 16 or 32 GB internal storage capacity.

The phone is a predecessor to the HTC One X+, which is an upgrade on this phone. The phone offers a better battery at 1800 mAh compared to the older devices, which would die pretty fast. The device offers Beats by Dr. Dre, making it a pretty awesome music player. It offers an 8 megapixel camera with auto focus, smart LED flash, and BSI sensor, along with a 1.3 megapixel, 720p secondary camera. However, the device does offer a physical camera button and only has an onscreen click button. The device’s image processor, HTC's ImageChip, removes noise, balance color and extends depth of field.
