HTC One Mini review: the right mini

HTC One Mini Review: Proper Mini

HTC One Mini is the first smaller version of the top smartphone in the family of the Taiwanese manufacturer. Naturally, in any tech-conscious society, it’s directly compared to Samsung’s competitor, the Galaxy S4 Mini. Both models have a 4.3-inch screen with a high-quality matrix, excellent performance and autonomy, as well as a compact body. If the Galaxy S4 Mini ends the similarities with the "older" one, then HTC went a little further. And equipped One Mini with the same camera and the same software features as the top model. As in the case of HTC One, One Mini appeared on the market later than its main competitor, so it noticeably loses in price (by the way, HTC One is now also more expensive than Samsung Galaxy S4). Let’s see how the model justifies its cost.

Outwardly, HTC One Mini completely copies the top-end smartphone in the HTC line with all the advantages and disadvantages. The case is metal, the location of the controls is identical. This means that the screen lock key is located on top, and even on the left, you have to reach for it, but eventually you get used to it.

The right side of the top end is occupied by the headphone jack.

There are two volume keys, for some reason it looks more neat than the volume rocker usually looks. They are on the right.
