HTC M4 Spotted Alongside Massive Sony Togari Device

HTC m4 Sony

The above picture surfaced earlier today on Twitter, showing off some very interesting devices. Up first is the HTC M4 aka One Mini, a device that was leaked around the beginning of this month. This is the first time we are seeing it in person and the subtle differences between this phone and the larger One make it look like a very classy device. It has a white border around its edge, as well as having the smaller BoomSound grills. 

From the info that was leaked previously, it supposedly rocks a 4.3″ 720p display, 2GB of RAM, a dual-core Snapdragon processor and runs Android 4.2+.

Next up is that huge Sony device. Being labeled as the rumored Togari device, this thing (pictured below the Galaxy Note 2) looks insanely large. It is rumored to feature a 6.44″ 1080p display and that is all that is currently known.

Any thoughts on this Togari device or the One Mini?

    If you think that big Sony is “just the right size!” Then you’re bananas for even considering buying that monstrosity!!!! Ahhhhh!!!!!! Phabzilla is upon us!

    After using my note 2 for a few days, I can say that the additional screen size makes it the perfect device for media consumption, and using Internet apps. I don’t feel like I am straining to see things on the screen like I did with my smaller RAZR and as a result, I find myself reaching for my tablet less and less. With that being said, although I think that Samsung did a stellar job making the device feel as small as possible, it is about as large as they are going to be able to make the note devices and people be able to comfortably use them. Even with my large hands, using flow on SwiftKey is uncomfortable in landscape. So this Sony device is definitely going to be hard to use as a cell phone in my opinion.

  • ahhh yes

    21:9 phone…like the lg chocolate 4 or 5 or whatever….did this acer ever make it out? or was is a asus

    • hkklife

      Acer, I believe It never came out (as far as I know, certainly not stateside).

  • ahhh yes

    how about that huge nokia

    Ok. I think most will agree we crossed the “too big” line

  • GKG

    Dat phone

  • John Burke

    The bottom bezel looks ridiculously big on the Togari

    • MikeCiggy

      with the glare and fingerprints im having a hard time telling where the screen stops but you may be rite. Let’s just hope its an internal test device..

  • Chris Cannon

    Isn’t that what the LG Chocolate 3 was supposed to be like, just bigger?

  • Dale Kimball

    Should be called the Sony Bowstaff…

  • BRIM

    The M4 better not be HTC’s version of Samsung Galaxy S4 mini where they strip the phone and make it into last year’s specs.

    • Dave

      99.5% of people don’t care. Only Android extremists live and die by specs….LoL

    • Justin W

      …. That’s what a Mini version is.. I saw somewhere they were going with something like a Snapdragon 400 or 300 in it, which, while technically not last year’s specs, are not high-end specs like the One or S4.

    • michael arazan

      I think they called that the First

      Asshat

      Fromhttp://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=asshat

      A person, of either gender, whose behavior displays such ignorance/obnoxiousness that you would like to make them wear their own ass as a hat.

      • Greg

        I’ll accept the asshat title. I erased my comment twice and almost didn’t post it but it kept bothering me. Tim, I still enjoy your articles and know I couldn’t write as well or any better.

        • ElectroGadget

          Thaaat’s the spirit.

        • wow dude

          … what the hell? did you just APOLOGIZE for being obnoxious on the internet?

          what kind of crazy upside-down world did i wake up in today??

          all kidding aside, i salute you.

          Don’t worry. Verizon treats everyone like that

  • Paradisimo

    I want that guy’s job!

  • Brandon Heid

    We need a new term that combines phablet and tablet, because this is too large to be called a phablet IMO

        Didn’t we have those? Like 20 some years ago?

    • jpippo4

      Yeah it’s called stupid. Get a really big phone or a small tablet. This is getting silly, 6.8 inch screens on a phone lol

  • fartbubbler

    People downvote just to downvote. Welcome to the Internet.

    • Justin W

      I’ll help you out with your quest to the bottom :)

    No m4 for me. I like power and high quality displays. Not sure what the point is of lower quality of everything. Not like they make a low end Ferrari for their high ends.

  • ßen Murphy

    Thoughts? Not a one.

  • Eric

    That Sony device looks like a BEAST!

    • Blue Sun

      If it was real…

  • Daniel

    The Windows phone looming in the background is also a beast

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      Yeah, but it has one huge disadvantage….it’s a Windows phone.

      • Michael Harrison

        Windows OS really isn’t half bad, but the support is the biggest negative on it.

  • SirSoloDolo

    Might as well take calls from my Nexus 7
