Looking for phones? CNET's reviews of the best phones include photos, video, and user reviews.
With its slick metal body, the HTC One Mini 2 is among the most luxurious compact phones around. HTC, however, has given it a set of specs that put it more alongside the dirt-cheap Moto G than the One M8. This is definitely not the flagship One M8 in a more compact form. If style is of the utmost importance, it's worth checking out, but the Moto G is much better value.
Although it bears the same "G2" name as its big brother, the LG G2 Mini is watered down in every respect. Its screen has a disappointingly low resolution, its processor doesn't put up much of a fight and it has an 8- rather than 13-megapixel camera. Unless you crave 4G, the Motorola Moto G is a much better buy as it offers a better screen, the same processor and costs half the price. If however you're after the best mobile tech but in a more pocketable size, Sony's superb Xperia Z1 Compact is where your money should go.
Sporting more modest specs than its G2 bigger brother, LG's Mini variant features a 4.7-inch display, a quad-core processor, and Android 4.4.
The HTC One Mini 2 has the same gorgeous metal design of the flagship One M8, but shrinks down the body -- and the specs.
HTC has taken the luscious metal body of its flagship mobile and reduced it to a slightly more pocketable size.
Phone will debut in gray, gold, and silver and will offer different camera tech than the dual lenses on the M8's back, according to the alleged photo.
Should the details of a 4.5-inch display, KitKat and a Snapdragon 400 processor prove accurate, the smaller version of the 2014 flagship should be no slouch.
The situation is so bad that Sony is suspending its dividend -- the first time it won't be making a payout since it listed in 1958.
Tentative deal between iPhone maker and Beats is reportedly in the works and could be one of Apple's biggest buys yet.
