REVIEW: HTC One mini Android 4.2.2 Smartphone with HTC Sense 5
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:33 CET under 08 - Reviews

For one week, I have the pleasure to test and use the upcoming and just recently announced HTC One mini as my main device, which replaced the HTC One as my main smartphone. Therefore, the switch wasn't too difficult for me since both devices are (now) running Android 4.2.2, something the One mini will be immediately launched with, as well as HTC Sense 5. The HTC One mini follows in the tradition of the One-series of HTC's high-end line-up, but like the HTC One S was to the HTC One X(L), the HTC One mini is to the HTC One. It's sharing the same DNA and spirit; but this time HTC went even further by making the One mini similar looking to the One. But it's nevertheless not the same device just smaller but a different device.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:07 CET under 08 - Reviews

The HTC One mini - the smaller sibling of the HTC One - is HTC's latest addition to the series of One devices. Powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8930) CPU and Adreno 305 GPU, the One mini will be right away released with Android 4.2.2 and HTC Sense 5. While the CPU sounds mini, other tech-specs aren't at all. The One mini also supporting quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, UMTS/HSPA+ at 900/1900/2100 MHz as well as triband LTE at 800/1800/2600 MHz.

REVIEW: Camera shoot-out between HTC One, Huawei Ascend P6, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Nokia Lumia 925
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:51 CET under 08 - Reviews

No question, doesn't matter if a smartphone has LTE, a 720p or 1080p HD touchscreen or Android, iOS or Windows Phone, one of the best - if not the best - features of is  the camera. The camera is always with you, the camera is virtually always ready to take a photo and it even allows to record - in most cases - HD videos. No wonder that the smartphone camera has mostly replaced the point and shoot cameras since the best camera is always the one which is with you. Now it comes to the question how good such a smartphone camera is and for a spontaneous shot, which is then shared via Facebook, Twitter or WhatsApp, most smartphone cameras a good enough anyway. Nevertheless, manufacturer are often advertizing their high-end phones with special camera optics and features and the question stays: how good are these high-end smartphone cameras?

QUICKVIEW: Joby GripTight Mount for Smartphones
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:08 CET under 08 - Reviews

We all know these moments, when it would be convenient to have a tripod for a smartphone. For instance if you want to shot some group photos during your vacations, record a video of your kids in the park, or for creating a fancy Vine or Instagram video. The tripod isn't the biggest problem, the real problem is how to mount it to your smartphone? Well, I was looking for another smartphone mount and came across the Joby GripTight Mount. Joby, well know for its GorillaPod stands, is one of the companies I trust in since the GorillaPod was so innovative when it was introduced years ago; but the GripTight Mount was only released last fall.

QUICKVIEW: Hands-on with the new HTC One mini Android Smartphone with HTC Sense
Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:51 CET under 08 - Reviews

Earlier this week I had the pleasure to have some quality-time with HTC's brand new HTC One mini, which was made official today. As you can read here, the One mini is powered by a 1.4 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8930) CPU with Adreno 305 GPU; which will be right away released with Android 4.2.2 and HTC Sense 5. While the CPU is only dual-core, compared to the One's quad-core CPU, WWAN connectivity is virtually the same and therefore is the One mini supporting also quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, UMTS/HSPA+ at 900/1900/2100 MHz as well as triband LTE at 800/1800/2600 MHz. All these bands will work perfect in Europe and Asia but not in North America.
