HTC One mini review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: Miniaturization is rarely a bad thing in the world of technology, but there’s a fine balance to be struck when trying to make something as small as possible without discarding the traits that made it appealing in the first place. Companies from Apple to Motorola to Samsung have tried their hand at distilling their already successful products into smaller, cheaper, and typically less powerful forms, attempting to deliver a compromise-free flagship experience in a more...
  • Pros: Best display at this size, Performs as well as the higher-spec One, High build quality
  • Cons: Poor camera results, Limited battery life, Sense is still a burden rather than a boon

HTC One Mini Review

TechSpot
2 October 2013
  • Conclusion: The HTC One mini is an interesting proposition. For $600, you can grab an unlocked HTC One , and for $500, you can get a HTC One mini , so by opting for a 4.3-inch display, you’re saving yourself $100. Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as going for a smaller display: you’re also getting a SoC downgrade from a Snapdragon 600 to Snapdragon 400, with less RAM, less storage and less connectivity features; plus a camera that lacks stabilization, and a smaller battery.

HTC One mini Review: In Depth

Recombu
18 September 2013
  • 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. The size of the device better suits one-handed use and the design retains a flagship appearance for the most part.
  • Pros: Beautiful, premium design, Rich multimedia experience, BoomSound/Beats audio is excellent
  • Cons: Camera lacks fine detail, No IR blaster or NFC, Expensive at launch

HTC One Mini (AT&T)

PC Magazine
9 September 2013
  • Conclusion: The AT&T HTC One Mini stuffs plenty of features into a compact design with a nice price, but its reception isn't up to snuff.
  • Pros: Very easy to use with a single hand. Nicely crafted. Sharp, responsive screen. Good camera.
  • Cons: Lower-end processor. Middling reception. No memory card slot or removable battery. Heavy Android skin might not suit everyone's taste.

CNET

HTC One Mini (AT&T) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
30 August 2013
  • Summary: The HTC One Mini is a sexy smartphone that combines a gorgeous 4.3-inch display and powerful front-mounted speakers in a one-hand-friendly package. At $99, the aluminum-clad Mini is $100 cheaper than its bigger brother, but that cost savings comes at the expense of some performance and TV remote control capability (which we can live without). We also would have Galaxy S4see the Mini last longer on a charge.
  • Pros: Premium aluminum design, Beautiful display, Exceptional speakers, Fast camera good in low light
  • Cons: Below-average battery life, Not fastest phone in class, Too many AT&amp, T apps

HTC One Mini

16 August 2013
  • Summary: It seems like a winning formula. Start with a premium handset. Reduce the size, specs and price. Voila! Job done! What could go wrong? Two things. First, HTC have cut the specs perhaps a little too much in certain key areas. Firstly, the 16GB of memory is far too small, especially since you can't add a memory card. Secondly, the battery life teeters on the edge of acceptability. Thirdly, the lack of NFC is just plain irritating.

Review HTC One Mini Smartphone

Notebookcheck
8 August 2013
  • Summary: The agony of choice. The small version of the HTC One is the manufacturer's deliberate attack on the success story of the Galaxy S Mini series. The HTC One Mini takes up the fight equipped with a 4.3-inch screen, a Snapdragon dual-core SoC and HD resolution. Its opponent is the recently introduced Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini.
  • Pros: Bright display, Good processing, High-grade material, Stereo loudspeakers, The device seems very high-grade and sturdy due to the usage of aluminum. The slightly higher weight is no burden.
  • Cons: Non-interchangeable battery, Memory expansion via SD card not possible, Only 1GB RAM, High buying price, Faint display of self-taken photographs, The RRP of 449 Euros (~$599) is clearly too high since the Galaxy S4 and the HTC One are available for a surcharge of nearly 50 and 100 Euros (~$66 and ~$132) respectively. Additionally the same-sized S4 Mini is significantly cheaper.

Expert Review

Channel5
6 August 2013
  • Conclusion: 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.
  • Pros: While the HTC One Mini is far from the first shrink-rayed Android super phone, it is the first to look respectable. Compared to Samsung’s plasticky Galaxy S3 Mini and S4 Mini blowers, this is a league above, with a beautiful design and curved metal back. The only difference is the plastic frame, which slightly diminishes the premium feel, but only when you hold it. From a distance, this is the same class act as the HTC One, and worthy of its name, with the same truly ...
  • Cons: The HTC One’s smaller frame does have some drawbacks: HTC’s only found space for a rather measly 1,800mAh battery, which left us struggling to get through a day of use. There’s also no space for the infrared TV remote control sensor or a microSD card, which is a bit disappointing as you only get 16GB of storage on board, 11GB of which is available to the user - in other words, that’s your limit for storing video, pictures and music and there’s nothing you’ll ever be a...
