HTC One Mini 2 review

 

The HTC One Mini 2 is the brand's new pared-down version of the HTC One M8

Great M8 design ; Impressive battery life ; Excellent speakers

Expensive ; It's evolution not revolution ; Is it that bit too long?

Design, Sense 6.0 is mature and refined, BoomSound speakers

Price is too high, can be a little slippery in dry hands

There's a lot of good going on in the HTC One mini 2. For many it will be perfectly powerful, the battery performance is reasonable if not exemplary, and its software experience is one of our favourites in the current market.

HTC One Mini 2 review

 

HTC's premium design arrives in a smaller suit

Premium design ; Strong camera ; Boomsound

Chunky build ; Battery still not great ; Jarring performance

Ratings in depth Here we are again. The first in what is expected to be a slew of new miniaturised flagship devices has arrived, and it's HTC first to the shrink ray with the confusingly named HTC One Mini 2.

Hands-on: HTC One mini 2 review - Pocket-lint

 

The HTC One mini 2 wants to capitalise on the good looks of the HTC One (M8), if not the good name. There's been no shortage of confusion around what

HTC One mini 2 video review: A smaller, cheaper M8

 

Importantly, it retains the premium feel thanks to the brushed metal casing – although there is a thin plastic strip so the metal doesn't quite reach round to the front.

HTC One mini 2 review

 

If you can't afford the HTC One M8 then the One mini 2 is more likely to be within your budget. It's available for a middle of the road £359 which we think is a good price for what you get. It's still not as cheap as the Nexus 5 though which has some...

The HTC One mini 2 is one of the better examples of a mid-ranged version of a flagship smartphone. It has the same premium feel as the M8 with only a few downgrades - namely a lower res screen and no Duo Camera or IR blaster. The camera is a little...

HTC One mini 2 vs HTC One M8

 

The HTC One M8 either bests or matches the HTC One mini 2 in every category we cover here. And the difference in price isn't enough to make it a good deal in comparison. For those really looking to save some cash on an Android smartphone the best deal...

It's the same M8 beauty with Moto G specs

Gorgeous M8-inspired metal design, Sharp 720p HD screen, Decent 13-megapixel camera, Improved battery life

Same performance as Moto G, Fiddly virtual keyboard

Looks desirable, but its underpowered hardware makes the One Mini 2 feel too overpriced

HTC One Mini 2 review

 

We wrap our hands around the M8's smaller brother to find out if smartphone perfection runs in the family

Superb build that bests 99% of its Android rivals ; microSD card at long last ; Sharp screen ; Solid, capable camera

Future-proof specs would have been nice ; A few Sense 6 tricks are missing

The One Mini 2’s gorgeous metal shell belies its budget label and comfortably outclasses phones above its price range
