HTC's mighty One Mini

A little smaller and a lot cheaper than the original HTC One, the HTC One Mini is one of the best phones in its class.

Not that 'Mini' after all

Exclusive to AT&T, the Mini, left, isn't so small after all. It's got the same depth and almost the same height and width, though the screen does come in at a smaller 4.3 inches compared with the One's 4.7-inch display. Even at full brightness, the Mini's screen is slightly less vibrant and colorful on its LCD 2 material.

All-metal no more

The Mini may keep the One's characteristic shape and design, but to cut down weight and costs, HTC's engineers swapped out some of the aluminum for this plastic band. The result still looks dapper and sophisticated.

With the curve

Like the One, the Mini here has a rounded back for increased handheld comfort.

Making Sense

HTC's customizable Sense 5.0 interface rides on top of Android 4.2.2. You can demote BlinkFeed (not shown) if you don't want to use the scrolling newsfeed as your home screen.

Pocket shot

Smaller than the One, the Mini has a higher chance of snuggling into your pocket.

Camera parity

Both the One and Mini share a 4-megapixel "UltraPixel" camera with LED flash, though the Mini's gets a slightly different placement above the lens.

Boom!

BoomSound audio enhancements and two wide speaker grilles help this Beat Audio phone pump out some excellent, and loud, instrumentals and vocals.
