Summary: The HTC One Mini is a beautifully constructed handset, and a stark reminder that not every smartphone in 2013 needs to pack a giant screen to stand out. Apple’s doing just fine, thank you, and we’re glad to see another company offering a more reasonably sized alternative with great build quality.
Summary: I was actually rather excited to be given the opportunity to review the HTC One Mini as I have very much liked what I have seen from the HTC One and was curious to see if HTC could deliver a similar experience with its smaller cousin.
Pros: Excellent, Camera performance, Dual front facing speakers
Summary: The HTC One mini has a software suite that’s identical to the HTC One. This means you’ll see Android 4.2.2 loaded out of the box, along with HTC Sense 5.0 and any carrier-specific applications.
Conclusion: The HTC One Mini is one of the nicest-looking mid-range smartphones we’ve ever had laid eyes on. It’s also extremely comfortable to hold and easier to use with one hand than larger-screen devices that (iPhone aside) dominate the market these days.
Pros: Nice-looking screen, Great build quality like the HTC One, More comfortable to hold than larger-screen phones, Great low-light camera
Cons: Poor battery life (can’t last a day), Gets warm when gaming and streaming video, Speakers aren’t nearly as impressive as HTC One’s, No expandable storage or removable battery
Summary: The HTC One Mini was an attempt in HTC offering a smaller version of its popular HTC One. The HTC One Mini may not have the high-end specs of the HTC One, but for a product its size, it’s an extremely impressive smartphone.
Conclusion: The HTC One mini certainly looks the part, but does it deliver? Absolutely. It’s not perfect, but this more pocketable take on the HTC One is a joy to use and offers users a rich smartphone experience that its rivals may find hard to beat.
