over in the "HTC Says KitKat to Hit One Within 90 Days" discussion:
To me this is a good start, or merge with a company that has a diverse technolgy portfolio in selling other consumer goods like HDTV's etc.. Every company has bad dogs, Samsung, LG Etc.. But all of them have made outstanding devices. This is what HTC really needs. Its hard for a company like HTC, Nokia and Blackberry to have a narrow focus of goods like smartphones. While many other devices are not phones, they do have releated technology that could compliment and improve both types of consumer goods. As well as being able to take a hit if something doesn't do well. Dell and Lenovo would be good options.

Personally, I think all the of these look less gawdy than the actual One, which looks like it was made from a soda can.

I couldn't find anything about memory or processor in the article.
I really wanted to like this phone HTC, I really did. I have been looking for something to replace my Nexus S but this just won't cut it. 16 GB was fine two years ago, but now I need at least 32 GB (large music collection) and I want it in a smaller physical package.
My wife has a HTC One S that you stopped supporting. It doesn't imbue consumers with a lot of confidence when you drop support for a device that is not even two years old.
Try again HTC because I really want an alternative to Sammy.
I like the reduced size but: Cons: 😎 1> The sides are plastic (unlike the One) 2> No camera stabilization 3> Smaller battery (waiting for review on how this will effect performance) 4> No NFC 5> No TV remote ( I dont use anyway)
Pros: 😁 1> smaller size (speaks for itself) 2> Screen res. is best for the screen size 3> Camera lens is recessed. (will not scratch) 4> Still has front speakers and Boom sound.(nice) 5> Has newer version of Sense 5 (nice) 6> The side and top buttons are easier to locate with fingers.
Summary: 🙂 My opinion it will be an even trade off between the One and the Mini One. I think the decision for anyone would be a personal preference between the 2 . I think I will go with the One instead of the... (continues)
