Verizon just announced the HTC One Remix, but this isn’t some brand new offering from HTC. Instead, Verizon flexed its carrier muscle to bring a new name to the HTC One mini 2, a phone we saw the manufacturer announce back in May. So while it’s only just now coming to the States (sales at Verizon get started tomorrow), this is one handset we’ve already spent a lot of time interacting with and forming some opinions about. If you’ve got it in your mind to maybe stop by a Verizon store tomorrow and pick this fella up, go in armed with full knowledge of what to expect by having our One mini 2 review fresh in your mind.
Is that step from the 4MP Duo Camera to a more traditional 13MP sensor an improvement, a downgrade, or just more of a lateral move? Will the Snapdragon 400’s performance leave you craving the power of the M8’s Snapdragon 801? And any time we’re talking about a “mini” phone, we’re curious to see how the compromises stack up, and to learn whether or not the phone does its full-sized namesake justice.
We considered all that and more when putting the One mini 2 through its paces, and most everything we learned is directly applicable to Verizon’s One Remix. Sure, that didn’t give us the opportunity to address giant, unavoidable Verizon logos (just like we know you’ve been asking for), but those you can always check out in person.
