HTC One Mini review

 

A little slice of the world's best mobile phone.

Great design ; High-res screen ; Doesn't need more CPU power

Poorer battery ; Misses image stabilisation ; Storage too low

What are you supposed to do when you make the world's best phone? HTC thinks the answer is to make it smaller, shave off a few unnecessary bits and make it a whole lot cheaper.

HTC One mini - Pocket-lint

 

The HTC One mini is a great Android smartphone. The design and build are outstanding, the user experience offered by HTC Sense 5 is commendable and the

Fantastic premium design, great display, Sense 5 is a sophisticated user interface

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

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...

The HTC One mini has been officially announced, bringing much of the HTC One love to a smaller, more compact, more affordable handset. The big brother

New HTC One M8 2014 vs HTC One mini vs HTC One M7 comparison review

 

Last year HTC launched a mini version of its flagship HTC One M7 smartphone. Now it has launched with great fanfare a brand new version of the HTC One M8, known as the M8. You'll still be able to buy the HTC One mini and the original HTC One M7,...

There's no point us calling a winner here as the new HTC One M8 is clearly the superior device. It's really up to you to decide whether the extra money is worth it and it's a tough call.

HTC One Mini

 

Is this the 4.3-inch device to rule them all?

Excellent 720p HD screen, Slick Sense 5.0, Rich speaker performance

No removable battery, Incompatible with some big Android games, Only 16GB onboard storage

HTC One Mini review

 

“Mini” is pushing it, but the One name is well deserved

One styling on a smaller scale ; Great screen ; Good camera for the money

Short battery life ; Only available at 16GB ; Not actually very mini

The HTC One has been trimmed in every way, but battery life aside the cuts are all in the right places

Galaxy S4 mini vs HTC One mini comparison review

 

Samsung's Galaxy S4 mini has arrived and now HTC has brought along its HTC One mini. Find out how these rivals stack up against each other in our Samsung Galaxy S4 mini vs HTC One mini comparison review. Updated on 30/07/13.

With an identical price point, this is a hard one to call. But we think the HTC One's build quality and superior screen gives it a slight advantage over the Galaxy S4 mini.

HTC One mini review

 

The HTC One mini is the latest in a growing trend: it's a cut-down version of top-of-the-range Android smartphone, in this case the HTC One. But don't let the term 'mini' fool you. The HTC One mini is cheaper and slightly smaller than its big brother....

The HTC One mini isn't as good as the HTC One. Its performance is decent but not spectacular, and the addition of a layer of plastic has removed some of the original's chic. But this is a very strong handset at a decent price. Well worth a look.
