HTC HD Mini review

 

HTC proves that Windows Mobile isn't dead yet

Compact form factor ; Great battery life ; Packed with features ; Wi-Fi router option ; High quality, multi-touch screen

It's still Windows Mobile underneath ; Browser navigation is temperamental ; No camera flash ; Poor app support

Hot on the heels of the excellent HTC Legend and the even more impressive HTC Desire, is the HTC HD Mini. But whereas the Legend and Desire both come equipped with Android 2.1, the HD Mini has to make do with Windows Mobile 6.5.3.

First Look: HTC HD mini - Pocket-lint

 

If you've fancied the HD2 for some time but don't want such a large phone in your pocket, this might just be the phone you've been waiting for

Smaller more manageable screen, cool design

Smaller screen means keyboard fiddly, not as impressive looking as the big screen HD2

Our time was brief, but that didn't stop us enjoying the HTC HD mini even if we did have to put up with Windows Mobile briefly. If you've fancied the HD2 for some time but don't want such a large phone in your pocket, this might just be the phone...

Our favourite small touchscreen smartphone.

Superb viewing angles, Striking speed, Excellent touch-sense

Earphones lack noise isolation, Disappointing loud speaker, Older version of Windows

HTC HD Mini review

 

The HTC HD2 is a 4.3in smartphone that runs on a 1GHz Snapdragon processor and uses Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional and HTC's Sense UI + TouchFLO as its OS and UI respectively. Now there is the HTC HD Mini, a smartphone with a more petite build and a...

The HTC HD Mini looks like a pretty good deal. It might not be a super-charged device but does most things well enough. It has a good looking, and more importantly, usable UI and touch input works well.

HTC HD Mini review

 

HTC's HD2 is one of our favourite smartphones despite its WinMo leanings. Can its little brother match its success?

WinMo works better on its bigger brother’s screen, but this is a fine alternative if you need a highly pocketable touchscreen smartphone

HTC HD mini – Mini Review

 

Windows Mobile 6.5 is getting a bit long in the tooth now but write it off at your peril. The HTC HD2 is simply amazing thanks to the HTC Sense interface and there's still a big community out there. The HD2, which we reviewed here , has the 1Ghz chip,...
