Review: HTC One mini
HTC did a bang-up job with the One mini. Minus a few features, it's every bit as good as the larger One. The smaller footprint makes the mini more usable and hand-friendly, and HTC was able to retain the high-quality feel and experience of its flagship product despite some minor design changes.
Highlights include the camera, display, call quality, BoomSound, and of course the aluminum materials. The slightly updated version of Sense 5 makes the usability improvements needed to put the mini in "excellent" territory when it comes to the user interface. I like that BlinkFeed is more manageable, and that the gallery software has been simplified. The mini loses the One's NFC, IR blaster, and faster processor, but most people won't notice their omission.
The mini is an excellent choice for people who dislike large devices but still want the best-possible experience from their smartphone.
