For Network: All have equal on this division, it just a matter of what version that the consumers have.
For Display: Looks like the Xperia ZR wins on this division while they provide good display screen and protection, but Xperia ZR has larger screen display compared to others.
For Processor: Another point for Xperia ZR for having a Quad-core CPU.
For OS: All came with Jelly Bean but Xperia ZR has an Android 4.1 version meanwhile the rest of the two has version 4.2.2
For Camera: I admit that Rear camera of Xperia ZR is awesome but having a VGA front camera is quite disappointing, I might vote for Galaxy S4 mini or HTC One mini for this. For Camera Features, I might choose HTC One Mini because of its Ultrapixel camera. But in terms of quick response of camera, I would vote for Samsung Galaxy S4 mini.
For Connectivity: In terms wireless connection I would prefer both Xperia ZR and Galaxy S4 mini.
For Memory: I would to choose Samsung Galaxy S4 mini because it can expand its microSD slot up to 64GB while HTC One mini doesn’t have any, and Xperia ZR can only support up to 32GB. But having 2GB RAM means a lot, especially loading of apps/games. Meanwhile S4 mini has only 1.5GB RAM and One Mini has only 1GB RAM. But still, I would go for Galaxy S4 mini because of its microSD card support.
For Dimension/Weight: Samsung Galaxy S4 mini wins in this division.
For Battery Life: Xperia ZR does really need to have more power to boost up the Quad-core functionality of the phone, meanwhile HTC One mini got only 1,800 mAh which not so close enough to have at least 2,000 mAh (in my expectation). For Galaxy S4 mini, I’m expecting to have at least 2,000 mAh. In this category, it comes to user’s expectation and usages of the Smartphone if they contented to its battery lifespan. But if the comparison is in normal usage of phone I would prefer Xperia ZR.
Verdict: For non-stylish and gamer you may choose Galaxy S4 mini for the price of $499.00 LTE Version, meanwhile if you are looking stylish and sophisticated Smartphone then you may go for HTC One Mini (price still unknown). If you are gamer style and plus a toughness you wanted for Waterproof and Dustproof, then Sony Xperia ZR is a Smartphone for you (price is around $539.99).
