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.

Great and very easy to use phone. Very good display, amazing design, great speakers and sound. The photos, however seem to be "cold" in normal regime but they look better when you switch to night mode (even in day light). Overall a great phone! Recommend it.

Good all round phone. Premium design. Camera is pretty good, the sound quality of the boomsound speakers is amazing. Not the most powerful phone but handles most things I have thrown at it although noticed a slight bit of lag when playing some games. Battery life is decent - can easily get a full day out of it - sometimes two days.Very happy with the HTC One Mini 2. Can recommend this phone if you're after a good all rounder that performs well in all areas. It's definitely one of the best mid-range phones out there at the moment.
