HTC One Mini 2 Overview
The HTC One M8 has proven a popular device for HTC and, as with the release of the HTC One Mini last year, a smaller version of the M8 appearing was a dead cert.
Like the original Mini, the One Mini 2 isn't a carbon copy of its bigger brother; more a stripped down version of the flagship device although it still comes with superb build quality and some top rate specifications. HTC are well renowned for their devices being of a high standard and their customers wouldn't settle for anything less.
Out of the box the One Mini 2 will be running Android 4.4.2 KitKat so, just like the M8, you'll have the most up to date version of Google's OS. All the features of Android and the Sense UI will run smoothly thanks to the 1.2 GHz Quad-core processor. Coupled with the 1GB of RAM, multitasking will be seamless. This is a big improvement on the HTC One Mini of last year where you'll find only a dual-core 1.4 GHz processor.
Back to the build quality: the HTC One Mini 2 may well sit in the mid-range category but the brushed metal design will certainly gain some attention from those looking for a different feel to their device. At first glance you'd be forgiven for thinking it was in fact the HTC One M8 if it wasn't for the plastic running along the edge which is slightly less prominent than the HTC One Mini.
Music lovers will be immersed in their music with the front facing Boomsound speakers, a feature that will,no doubt, follow over to the next generation of HTC devices.
When it comes to the camera HTC have left the Ultrapixel camera behind and replaced it with a 13MP shooter at the back yet kept the 5MP front facing camera, ideal for selfies and Hangouts. Videos can be taken in full 1080p but don't worry about storage, if you aren't yet won over by the cloud storage the HTC One Mini 2 can take memory cards thanks to the expandable storage up to 128GB. That leaves the on board 16GB for apps and games.
With the bigger 4.5 inch screen and improved processor the 2,110 mAh battery will take care of your power requirements, this does make the HTC One Mini 2 slightly heavier at 137g and a little bulkier but a trade off that does make it worthwhile.
Out of the box there will be a host of Android apps to get your started, Google Play will offer a world of entertainment such as games that will take full advantage of the processing power. Google+, Gmail and other favourites will be available out of the box.
