Summary: HTC One Mini is definitely a great medium to high-end smartphones, offering a beautiful and elegant design and construction materials, solid and robust. In addition, no compromises regarding the main hardware features and performance, perfectly in line with the segment. In addition to this, we can certainly recommend the purchase of the terminal to all those looking for a smartphone lightweight and easy to handle at a cost of selling affordable.
Pros: Construction materials, Audio quality, High autonomy.
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.
Summary: HTC told us that it took a ‘no compromise’ approach to developing the HTC One Mini. Looking at the device, holding it in your hand, and flicking around the UX illustrates this point profoundly. Everything that set the One apart from the crowd is here – imaging technology, quality build materials, UX design and functionality.
Pros: Amazing build quality and design, brilliant camera, carries across many of the features that made the HTC One so good, Android Jelly Bean, Sense 5 is a great Android skin
Cons: Battery life isn't all that impressive, no SD-support
Conclusion: The HTC One has aged pretty well, but prices simply haven't dropped enough to make this a worthwhile purchase. At around £260 SIM free, and with few good vlaue contract deals to be found, it's simply been left to rot. You can get a decent modern phone, such as the Moto G 2014 for almost half that amount of money. The handset has been replaced by the newer, but equally dissapointing HTC One Mini 2 .
Summary: A little slice of the world's best mobile phone.
Pros: Great design, High-res screen, Doesn't need more CPU power, If you hold both the One and the One Mini, you'll struggle to tell the difference, apart from the fact one is smaller than the other (obviously). The aluminium build quality pervades, and it's hard to believe that you're not holding one of the premium devices on the market. Even the polycarbonate band that runs around the edge of the phone is unobtrusive, which means you get a distinctive design that doesn't ...
Cons: Poorer battery, Misses image stabilisation, Storage too low, Sadly, the overall impression we got of the HTC One Mini was one of a phone that didn't quite match up to the One in terms of spec or performance, even taking into account the lower price tag. Battery life is once again our biggest concern here, as while it's not atrocious there's still a lot to be desired. We can see a number of people nervously checking the battery meter during use, worriedly watching as t...
Conclusion: The HTC One mini brings a lot to the party. It looks good, it sounds good and it performs well enough on everyday tasks. It's a great mid-range device, with an experience that's very much the same as the larger HTC One. It might be a little slower, it might be a touch more limited, but it's still rather accomplished. At £379, it's not exactly bargain basement, undercut by some of its rivals, including some that are more powerful.
Pros: Fantastic premium design, great display, Sense 5 is a sophisticated user interface
Cons: Choosing a smaller device means accepting a less-powerful device, battery life isn't great, some apps wouldn't run, more expensive than rivals, no NFC
Summary: В общем, этот смартфон является хорошей альтернативой для оригинального HTC One. Да, он стал менее мощным, у него отсутствует ИК-порт и OIS возможности, но на такие жертвы можно смело идти, если Вы хотите более дешевый смартфон. Лучше обратите свое внимание на положительные стороны, например на то, что качество его сборки и дисплей остались на прежнем высоком уровне.
