A mini, metal One M8.
That’s the idea with HTC’s new One mini 2: miniature yes, but with a fit and finish meant to make it impossible to ignore its flagship ancestry. So if the larger One M8 caught your eye but proved too big for your hand, is the One mini 2 a viable alternative, or has HTC made too many sacrifices on the road to a smaller footprint?
That’s what we aim to find out with the HTC One mini 2 vs HTC One M8 comparison video below. We take a tour of each phone’s anatomy, from fit and finish to software to the wildly divergent cameras. You’ll learn what you’ll gain and what you’ll give up by choosing one of these over the other, as well as just how much specs matter in a contest between a flagship and its midrange cousin. Check out the comparison, and then head on over to our full One mini 2 review for an even deeper look at the world’s newest HTC smartphone!
