Many of us here at Pocketnow have been quite disappointed with the lack of love for “mini” phones – they’re generally crammed with mid-range specs, don’t get wide carrier adoption, and lag behind in terms of support and updates. The HTC One Mini update to Sense 6 is long overdue according to many, but it’s finally here for AT&T users.
The update, which weighs in at a hefty 550MB, brings quite a few changes to the aging device. Apart from the base Sense 6 features, there are updates to the Gallery and Camera app, the addition of Extreme Power Saving Mode, and other miscellaneous fixes and improvements.
