i do not understand how these phones can be called "mini" with 4.7 inch and 4.5 inch.
When I see "MINI", I expect 4.3 or even 4.0

There is a huge market for 4.3 inch phones and 2 GB Ram(at least) and...zero phones.
Nobody needs trillions of pixels for camera.you need good pictures, buy a real photo camera.
Also, I don't want to walk with a brick in my pocket. :)

It's really stupid for you to compare the Mini 2 and the Alpha.. they're not on the same league.

Despite i dont like samsung, the galaxy alpha is amazing, beautiful, strong on almost all aspects.

And the HTC, well, i hate those giant bezels (i owned Xperia S and saw Z1) and enormous size for such screen, and thst kills phone look. I don't like a too round phone as well.

However, Sense is among with LG's G3 UI as the best looking UIs on the market.

A happy LG G2 owner:)
