Review: HTC One mini 2

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  1  

There's no doubt in my mind that the HTC One mini 2 is among the best mid-range devices you can buy. The design, materials, and build quality are surpassed only by HTC itself with the larger One. What the mini 2 lacks in sheer volume of features, it makes up for with heart, grit, and some good decisions on HTC's part.

The mini 2 may sacrifice the M8's best features, but it still manages to impress. The 720p HD screen is among the finest I've tested for its size and resolution; call quality is excellent; and battery life is staggeringly strong.

Despite the slower processor, the mini 2 had no trouble running Android 4.4.2 KitKat and Sense 6.0. The user interface offers an abundance of customization tools and is laid out cleanly and clearly. The HTC camera application is quite good, and the mini 2 produces crisp photos. Toss in BlinkFeed for social news snacking and BoomSound for solid audio, and you have a winner on nearly all fronts.

The One may be HTC's flagship device for the year, but the mini 2 is a more approachable handset thanks to its reduced footprint, lower price point, and compelling performance/value.
