What do you think of the new HTC One mini specs?
With our sneak peek at the new HTC One mini we put out all the specs and a rundown of the device. Well, as much as we could based on the limited time we got to spend with it!

You can't please everyone, but you can certainly please a lot of people! What do you think of the HTC One mini?
How to take a screenshot with the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini
It's a simple task, but not everyone knows how to take screenshots on their smartphone. Loie here at AndroidPIT put her hand modeling skills to the test and produced screenshot GIFs for the most popular devices. Don't worry if you don't have a S4 mini yet either, because we'll make more GIFs for more devices as we find the time with Loie's hectic hand modeling lifestyle.

Rovio will announce a new Angry Birds Star Wars title game
We just can't get enough of Angry Birds here at AndroidPIT, and it seems like you can't either.

I've been voting to keep Jar Jar Binks out, and funnily enough, when Rovio announced the game they specifically mentioned anti-Jar Jar sentiment in Androidland. So it looks like I'm not the only one! Cast your vote for Jar Jar (or not!) in the forums now!
