Adding that to an absolutely premium build quality handset takes things to a whole new level.
I've been using an HTC One (M7) for almost a year now and absolutely love it.
Meanwhile my partner uses an original HTC One Mini - her choice after A LOT of deliberation - and she absolutely loves that.
The HTC One Mini 2, although a bit of a mouthful in its name, brings the Mini almost up to the spec of its big brother.
Spec wise, this is still a mini. Lower resolution screen, slightly less powerful processor and a couple of other bells and whistles missing (like the IR blaster that allows the phone to be used as an Infra Red remote control for your TV etc) mean they are not direct equivalents, but size and weight wise the Mini 2 is much closer to the HTC One (M7) than the original HTC One Mini.
This means it's a real contender if your choice is between the older One (M7) and this one.
- The price is about the same as the One (M7).
- The size is about the same as the One (M7).
- They run the same OS and Sense UI versions (with HTC there are always very slight variations between models but they are essentially the same when the M7 is allowed to run its auto-updates).
The One (M7) has the full HD screen (One Mini 2: 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.5 inches -vs- One (M7): 1080 x 1920 pixels, 4.7 inches), the slightly higher spec processor (One Mini 2: SnapDragon 400 Quad-core 1.Read more ›

● My rating for this phone WAS 5 stars.
● They have closed down BlinkFeed, showing total contempt for their customers.
● You can move to "NewsRepublic", which has adverts.
● In other words, out of the blue, HTC have removed a core feature of the phone!

📱 I'm writing this from the perspective of a long time iPhone user.
ℹ️ I experienced my first Android phone, a Moto G, a few weeks ago. Whilst I was impressed (stunned, actually) with the screen and the price, I was let down in terms of usability.
👌The Mini2 solved the weight and size problem, and the keyboard is really good [more on that below].
The Mini 2 is the perfect size. I don't know why it's called "Mini", it's not really that small - it's a sensible size. It's about the same size as my iPhone 5S. I can use it one-handed as I walk down the street.
☑️ Of supreme importance, to me, is the keyboard autocorrect!
Although it is very cramped, on the keyboard, super-fast and the autocorrect _almost_ always changes it to what I intended to say. (As i'm typing it looks like a mess, but once I press space after a word it somehow, magically, fixes everything)
☑️ Also, when I press the spacebar twice it puts a full stop - something i've become reliant on!Read more ›
Camera is fantastic and it feels quite nice when navigating through the different apps and pages which is great. It also doesn’t feel too big in the hand compared to other phones I have played with.
I have a fair few bug/glitches but it’s probably not fair to highlight these as I should contact the seller rather than kick off on a review (it might just be an issue with my unit). I was however underwhelmed by the audio, especially considering its sales push for this function.
It looks good, but it's deeply unreliable.
I have had 4 replacements in 6 months. Each has broken down within weeks. Primarily software issues, and no, I don't put many Apps on it.
The tech inside is last generation - which I wouldn't mind if it actually worked - but it doesn't.
It gets terribly hot - almost to the point you can't hold it - just by regular use.
That HTC have abandoned any providing any software updates on it tells you all you need to know about its capability.
Don't take my word for it - read the links to the Vodafone customer eforum where you can see the same flaws cropping up time and time again to many different people.
