HTC One Mini Overview
The HTC One roared onto the smartphone scene earlier this year, announcing to the world that HTC can still do what made them famous - producing beautiful, high quality smartphones at the highest end of technology. Providing all the quality of its larger brother, the HTC One Mini offers the same seamless Android experience in a smaller package.
Upgraded to Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, the HTC One Mini benefits from performance enhancements and is as fast as you can expect, navigating through the device is as slick as ever. The processor has been trimmed down to a 1.4GHz dual core, which is standard at this size, and more than capable of delivering the HTC One experience in the Mini.
The design of the One has been heavily applauded by critics, the sealed unit metal alloy construction feeling remarkably solid in the hand. This high end construction is mirrored in the One Mini in a smaller form factor, providing a compact profile for simple one-handed operation. The Mini is just that, a perfectly formed smaller sibling with all the curves and grooves of the HTC One. The twin front mounted speakers also return to deliver the best quality sound from any manufacturer to date.
The HTC One experience is delivered without compromise in the One Mini, so all of the best software features have returned. HTC BoomSound appears, once more, to amplify sound and immerse you in full, rich audio through the twin front mounted speakers. HTC's game changing notification stream BlinkFeed also returns, ready to keep you up to date with everything happening, both from your social media feeds and the wider world. BlinkFeed is totally customisable so you get just what you want delivered to your homescreen - news, blogs, sport, updates and more.
HTC turned the camera game in the smartphone industry on its head with the original One. Not convinced by the race to more and more megapixels, HTC developed the UltraPixel sensor. Less pixels which allow for much more light and a higher quality image in a much wider set of circumstances, leading to incredible low light performance. UltraPixel is seen once again on the One Mini so you can be assured of the highest quality imagery. HTC Zoe, the organic photo gallery that creates 30 second slideshows of your recent pictures makes a welcome comeback too.
