When HTC calls this the “mini” HTC One it’s not kidding. It looks like a slightly smaller version of the Taiwanese manufacturer’s new One M8 smartphone, which is definitely a good thing.
It may look the same, but it doesn’t quite feel the same. HTC has had to use cheaper manufacturing processes to produce the body, which although it is clad in metal, isn’t one solid piece of aluminium and therefore doesn’t feel quite as nice. It still feels premium, though, which marks it above quite a few of its mid-range competition.
The curved back fits in the hand nicely, and it is still very solidly built with no flex or give in the body. It weighs 137g, and is 10.6mm thick, which makes it thicker than and slightly heavier than the iPhone 5C or Sony Xperia Z1 Compact – two of its rivals.
The 4.5in screen is hardly “mini” but it does mean the device is significantly smaller than the larger 5in HTC One M8. The One mini 2 is 9mm shorter and over 5mm narrower which makes it much easier to hold and use with one hand.
The screen is bright and pin sharp despite being only 720p (compared to the 1080p of the One M8), which makes it match Apple’s iPhone 5C on pixel density, with good viewing angles making sharing video and photos with others easier.
HTC’s signature BoomSound speakers bracket the screen, and while slightly smaller than those fitted on the One M8 are much louder and clearer than most other smartphones and make watching YouTube videos a joy.
