Although it doesn't carry the M8 name, the HTC One Mini 2 is the shrunken little brother to HTC's flagship One M8.

It keeps the same gorgeous metal design, but it has a smaller 4.5-inch display.

It's due to hit stores globally on 29 May, although HTC is yet to confirm pricing.

Instead of the "Ultrapixel" camera of its big brother, the One Mini 2 has a 13-megapixel sensor.

The camera interface is the same as on the flagship, although it lacks features like the 3D image effect (there's no depth sensor) and 360-degree panoramas.

There are still a host of image effects and scene modes.

It arrives with the latest Android 4.4.2 KitKat software onboard, along with HTC's Sense 6 interface.

Sense 6 has a simple design and is easy to use.

The BlinkFeed news aggregator still sits off to the left of the homescreens, but you can get rid of it if you're not keen.

It's not the skinniest phone around, but its curves make it very comfortable to hold.

The metal back curves around to the front, where there's a slim plastic rim. It's much classier than the chunky plastic band found on the previous One Mini.
