Design and Display

Between the two companies, Samsung and HTC , the designs do not usually have nothing in common except that the latest releases are based on terminals with touch screens. In the case of the two protagonists of this comparison we find that the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini features a four-inch diagonal with a maximum resolution of 800 x 480 pixels . The panel is multitouch and uses SuperAMOLED technology.

Meanwhile, the Taiwanese model ( HTC One V ) has a panel, also multitouch, of 3.7 inches with the same resolution as the Korean model . However, the technology adopts SuperLCD team. What is the main difference? That screen mini Samsung Galaxy S3 performs better under direct sunlight and brighter .

On the other hand, HTC One V has no physical button on the center of the chassis, while the Samsung model copy the exterior design of its big brother and contemplates a middle button on the bottom that allow the user to launch the main menu .

At the junction can be found few differences: Both models feature the latest so that the client can be connected to the Internet or share material with other equipment, ie, may use, interchangeably, high speed WiFi connections as mobile networks last generation 3G . Although the latter option is always advisable to do with a data rate for no surprises at the end of the month on the bill.

Also, do not forget the famous Bluetooth connection is also present in both the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini as the HTC One V , which will share files or connect to compatible. However, there is little difference between the two smartphones. And is that the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini technology has NFC which is increasingly present in the market.

Of course, in both model may find a GPS -compatible with A-GPS or Assisted GPS-with which to guide us through streets or roads using Google Maps or any other mapping that consumer interests.

Furthermore, the cable passes connectivity have both MicroUSB port with which to synchronize data with a computer so as to charge the battery. There is also a standard audio output to plug in external speakers or headphones typical.

Camera and multimedia

The cameras on mobile devices have become essential. And where, more and more people are set to be made when a new terminal. Both Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC mini One V have a five megapixel sensor on the back accompanied by a LED flash with which to illuminate darker scenes.

And with them the client also may hunt video. And in a very good quality: HD 720p a rate of 30 images per second . However, the main difference between the two advanced mobile is that the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini webcam has a 0.3-megapixel front (VGA) with which to make video calls .

Operating system and applications

Android is the main protagonist turn when the two terminals. Google is present in a large part of the sector . And both Samsung and HTC have taken advantage of the mobile platform of the Internet giant to boost their careers, but with different addresses: Samsung is on top of the current pyramid, while HTC continues to record losses in each quarter .

Moreover, the versions that come installed on both models will not be the same: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is what we can see on the HTC One V -there are no signs that say it can be again an update on this terminal. Meanwhile, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is the version that can be enjoyed on the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini . This operation will be much more fluid when launching applications and move between different icons on the screen of the terminal.

Finally, and here the judgment lies in the taste of each client, is the subject of the UI: Samsung applies its layer called Samsung TouchWiz and HTC installs the layer called HTC Sense . Two different ways to differentiate brands and that will make the appearance of the menus more enjoyable for the consumer.

Power and memory

But perhaps the biggest difference between the two terminals can be felt in the performance . One of them uses a single-core processor with a working frequency of GHz, while the other also works at the same frequency but using a dual core processor. This is the case of the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini . In addition, HTC One V has a memory of 512 MB, while the Samsung model offers twice the capacity: one gigabyte .

Furthermore, the internal memory to save files also offers their differences.  HTC One V comes with four gigabytes of space and the Samsung Galaxy S3 mini offers two versions: 8 or 16 GB . Of course, in both cases may increase these capabilities using MicroSD cards up to 32 GB.

Battery and reviews

The batteries that come with sales packages has the same capacity: 1,500 milliamps . Although it is also true that in case of any fault in it, the HTC One V must be sent for service and can not be replaced without opening the chassis . In the case of Samsung, the model does offer the user the possibility to remove the battery and replace it with a new one at any time.

These two advanced mobile-midrange midrange smartphones by what’s on the market that are consideredpremium and have more power, are very capable terminals in the day. However, there are clear differences between the two terminals. And not only in the design. S3 Samsung Galaxy mini is more powerful than its opponent; offers more memory for storing files. And, more highlight, is that it uses Android 4.1 Jelly Bean , the latest version of the Google platform is proving successful in performance.
