Engadget Review

HTC's One mini 2 is a fantastic-looking phone with much of the One M8's appeal. Beneath the brushed-aluminum body is capable internal hardware, even if it's not a huge improvement over last year's One mini. The 13-megapixel camera leaves a lot to be desired, but if you want the M8's premium design at a cheaper price or in a smaller form factor, you won't be disappointed.

Pros
  • Gorgeous design
  • Premium, brushed-aluminum chassis
  • Great general performance
  • Cheaper than the M8
Cons
  • Not much of a specification upgrade from the One mini
  • Camera performance is disappointing
  • Not particularly cheap
