Just because their are devices with similar screen size, not every app is programmed to run on every android phone. Those of us with Pre3s have even seen this with apps coded for webOS.

So even if you deem all those differences acceptable, you still need to account for how many devs took the time to code and test on a small screen device with low resolution.
Below is from the first article I found on the mini when googling for it's screen resolution.
Well, for starters, these low screen resolution devices suffer from the same app compatibility problem as the HTC Wildfire, so you'll be missing out on a small selection of popular apps like Robo Defense, WeatherBug, PdaNet, Tumblroid, and even our own Engadget app
