Samsung Galaxy Alpha vs. HTC One mini 2: Metal mania

 

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha comes forward as the next super mini but its armor will surely be tested in battle against the HTC One mini 2. The two have their distinct strengths but enough common ground to meet on - compact and metal.

The Galaxy Alpha marks a new beginning for Samsung, which HTC may view as trespassing on their premium territory. Samsung may have found a weakness - HTC have a proper full-size flagship but their compact offering feels like a midranger at times.

HTC One Mini 2 review: A premium compact smartphone for those who hate big phones

 

Like last year, HTC released a smaller cousin of their flagship device. The new HTC One Mini 2 should be called the M8 Mini and it is great to see this device perform well in a small form factor.

The new HTC One Mini 2 is a solid compact Android smartphone. While it doesn't have the high end specifications of the M8, it is not designed to be the flagship device. It holds its own and I honestly had lots of trouble developing a cons list for a...

HTC One mini 2 review: A worthy new addition to the premium One clan

 

HTC created what was undoubtedly one of the best smartphones of last year with the original One. That was later followed up by the One mini, which was su

Gorgeous design ; Premium, brushed-aluminum chassis ; Great general performance ; Cheaper than the M8

Not much of a specification upgrade from the One mini ; Camera performance is disappointing ; Not particularly cheap

HTC's One mini 2 is a fantastic-looking phone with much of the One M8's appeal. Beneath the brushed-aluminum body is capable internal hardware, even if it's not a huge improvement over last year's One mini. The 13-megapixel camera leaves a lot to be...

HTC One mini 2 review: average by design

 

The HTC One is a smartphone you can fall in love with. It presents an irresistible mix of sculpted contours, gorgeous display, and fast performance. When the list of best Android phones for 2014 is...

Has the look and feel of a high-end device ; BoomSound speakers make a real difference ; Better fit in the hand than the One

Not as refined as the One ; Motion Launch controls are gone ; Camera disappoints

A smaller and cheaper HTC One is still my dream phone, but this isn't it

HTC One Mini 2 review:

 

The HTC One M8 stormed its way to an "outstanding" verdict in our review thanks to its gorgeous metal body, truck loads of power, brilliant screen, cutting-edge Android software and powerful speakers. If 5 inches is just too much of a stretch for your...

The HTC One Mini 2 is one of the best looking compact phones around, thanks to its gorgeous metal body. Its screen is decent, its KitKat software is pleasant to use and its camera takes nicer shots than the flagship One M8.

Many of its key specs, including processing power and screen resolution match the Motorola Moto G, which costs less than half the price of the Mini 2.

With its slick metal body, the HTC One Mini 2 is among the most luxurious compact phones around. HTC, however, has given it a set of specs that put it more alongside the dirt-cheap Moto G than the One M8. This is definitely not the flagship One M8 in a...

HTC One mini 2 Review

 

HTC makes a great flagship smartphone but overlooked its midrange, and it has the dreary sales figures over the past couple of quarters to prove how shortsighted that was. Swinging in to save 2014, then, is the HTC One mini 2 , a 4.5-inch version of...

Compromise is difficult. The feature that one person is perfectly content to see omitted is invariably the same feature another user considers a must-have. Paring down capabilities alongside scale, but drawing the dots with a familiar phone by both...

HTC One mini 2 Review

 

Last year around this time, HTC had yet to release a mini version of its flagship phones. As OEMs continued to push bigger and bigger displays into bigger phones, there was a distinct push for a phone that had flagship specifications, but without the...

The < $400 smartphone market is expected to grow tremendously over the coming years. With the One mini 2, HTC targets the upper end of the midrange segment - betting on the style and materials that sell its high end smartphones working at lower...

HTC One mini 2 Announcement

 

Today, HTC is launching the HTC One mini 2, a phone that is supposed to be a smaller version of the HTC One (M8), both in price and size. As a direct successor to the HTC One mini, a surprising amount has changed. The camera is no longer the Ultrapixel...

The One mini 2 will be available in Europe and Asia beginning in June. There's no US launch planned at this point.

HTC One mini 2 hands-on: First look

 

HTC has expanded the One family with a new petite member - the HTC One mini 2. Note that it's not One (M8) mini, this is more of a sequel to the One mini from last year. Perhaps most telling of this is the camera, a 13MP shooter rather than the...

HTC One mini 2 Review

 

Not wasting any time, veteran smartphone maker HTC is quickly launching the very first off-side variant of its beloved flagship in the HTC One M8. Coming in with a more form-fitting package, the HTC One mini 2 is making its splash into the market in a...

Same premium design as One M8, but in a more compact package ; More details captured by its 13-megapixel camera

Underwhelming low lighting results with the camera ; Omitted features (IR blaster, Motion Launch gestures, etc) ; Blueish screen

Let’s be serious folks, the HTC One mini 2 isn’t for everyone. Without question, the smaller and more form-fitting nature of the phone is what’ll attract people to it – that’s of course, if they happen to love the HTC One M8, but not its beefy size....
