Rated 4 out of 5Â by Ferg Love It
Had my One mini for about a weeks now and I must say I am very impressed. I've upgraded from a Desire S which served me well for two years but was definitely in need of replacing. Decided on the One mini due to its smaller for factor (for easier one handed use and fitability in jeans pockets) and certainly don't regret not getting a larger phone.
All-in-all I'm very happy with the phone. The screen is sharp and clear, it certainly runs fast enough for everything I need it to do, 16 GB storage is more than enough for my current needs (though I must admit having an SD card slot would definitely be a welcome addition) and the camera is a massive improvement over my old handset. I'm even growing to like Blink-Feed, though it could certainly do with some more customisation options in terms of the feeds presented.
I'm only just shy of giving this an "Excellent" rating due to the somewhat poor battery life. Although the battery does last pretty much the same as the Desire S, given that we're two+ years on from that generation of handset, I had expected a greater improvement in battery life, but the purchase of a portable USB charging battery should make up for this. I'd also have complained about the lack of a desk cradle, but I've just noticed today that one is available from JMB on the HTC accessory store.
Bottom-line: great, though not perfect, handset.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by 350CC Great look with weird Price
The phone looks so amazing in hand. The ultimet premium feel. Specs are up to the market. BUT the price is twice than what it should have been.

Love the camera, can't see why people complain. I use a dSLR too and this phone beats it not, obviously, on total picture quality but on being a great camera that is actually portable so it gets the shots you see when just walking about unencumbered by heavy kit. Battery life is not good, but that's the curse of all phones these days.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by LongTimeHTCUser Rubbish Camera
Lovely phone but camera is rubbish, I have had HTC's for a long time & this is the 1st one I have been disappointed with. Don't buy if you use the camera a lot, only 4 megapixels regardless of HTC promoting their 'ultra pixels' the camera is not a good selling point. I have compared the picture from this to the picture from the HTC Desire S & there is no contest.
I have decided to send the HTC Mini back and look for something else - very disappointed to be doing this but know I won't be happy keeping the phone because of the camera.
HTC please put a better camera on the Mini as other than that it is a great phone.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by PhoneGuru Beautiful. Initiative. Affordable
Everything about it is almost perfect. Despite on paper having a less powerful processor than it's other HTC One counterparts, it runs just as well and is an equally good phone with a good feel and size. Only slight problem is occasional camera quality drop in some lightings.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by scottyboy great phone
I love my one mini as I have had HTC for the last 6 years and never had an issue with them and with the mini I was not disappointed at all the camera with zoe is a great step up from my sensation xe but the phone is the same size which is great as I didn't want a big phone but the headphones are not so good my last few beats which I'm using. But all in all I would recommend this phone if your looking for something that's not to big but want a little something that compets with the best of the others.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Bryn Sound reality check
Contrary to reviews on here the camera is fine, just don't zoom in as this is when you get noise. My problem is with the sound. With the headphones provided it is frankly embarrassing, it sounds like the band have recorded songs down the bottom of a metal lined hole, awful. The external speakers are quite good for what they are, comfortably used the phone as a radio while on holiday. I was basically seduced by the looks so I'm keeping it and buying some decent headphones! If you like music don't forget to add the cost of a set of headphones!
