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 drawn up, the One will be at or near the top. But the...

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

Wherefore art thou mini?

HTC One Mini 2


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


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 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 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 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 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....

HTC One Mini 2 Review: same beautiful design, smaller package


The HTC flagship has been shrunken down, both inside and out. Has it lost its aluminium lustre in the process? We find out in this HTC One Mini 2 review.

Smaller construction is more accessible than its flagship big brother ; Same great HTC metal build and aesthetic ; BoomSound, even if smaller, provides a good experience ; Expandable memory ; Despite mid-tier processing package, benefits from fast and...

Not exactly 'mini,' as it is about as big as last year's One M7 ; Smaller screen size is a bit less fun ; Snapdragon 400, while good, can still be bogged down ; Battery life decidedly average ; Despite higher resolution camera, app loses modes and...
