    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 ...

    HTC makes some great high-end devices, and we gave the One M8 one of the highest scores that we've ever given a device. But that's a "flagship" phone, what about the mid-tier? Luckily HTC has you covered there as well, in more ways that one! When diving to the middle, HTC had a couple ways it could go to keep the price of the device down. One option was to make the device smaller, the other was to drop the specifications - or both. We've already told you what we think of the HTC Desire 816 in our full review: a mid-tier phone with flagship DNA. Similarly, we've given the HTC One mini 2 ...

    HTC already offers a beautifully crafted Android smartphone with the One M8 – but for all its beauty, it sure is big. So for those who put a premium on pocket space (or pocket change) comes a smaller, cheaper alternative. The new HTC One mini 2 hits shelves this summer with a mission to bring the One M8’s high-end user experience to the midsize category. But the landscape of mini smartphones is a pockmarked one, cratered with cut corners and dotted with disappointment. Is the One mini 2 truly something different, or just another compromise in disguise? Let's find out. • Video ...

    If last year is any indication, the HTC One (M8) should be followed by a HTC One Mini (M5?), just as the One (M7) was followed by the One Mini (M4). It will likely compete against Samsung's Galaxy S5 Mini, whose tentative specs have been recently leaked. We've already heard mentions of the 2014 HTC One Mini, and a carrier even referenced it last week. According to unverified UK retailer inside sources, the 2014 HTC One Mini will be available next month, in May. It will be no surprise that it will inherit most of the looks of the One (M8) -- just like last year's model -- and the screen ...

    Even in the absence of any specific rumors to its existence, we'd still be expecting HTC to be working on a new Mini version of this year's One M8, just as we got the first One Mini several months following the launch of its own parent phone. But luckily for us, we're not working on pure guesswork, and a couple leaks have already gotten quite specific about this new Mini hardware. Late last week, we caught the latest reference to the smartphone, leaving us wondering just how soon it might launch. We still don't have a firm date available, but some new rumors sure narrow-down the window ...

    HTC introduced its first One back in February of last year; five months later, the One Mini (above) joined it. So, unsurprisingly, for much of the time we've been talking about the M8 arriving as this year's One, the notion of an M8 Mini has been bouncing around alongside it. Earlier this year, those rumors started getting quite specific, identifying part of a model number and later delivering detailed hardware info, including a 4.5-inch 720p display. Tonight this all new HTC One Mini is back in our thoughts, as a carrier seems to have inadvertently listed the phone on its website. Swedish ...

    Tomorrow, we're looking forward to Sense 6.0 debuting on the all new HTC One; for something that's not yet official, that news is all but certain. OK, but what does Sense 6.0's arrival mean for all the other HTC hardware? What existing devices might be getting Sense 6.0 by means of future updates – and then, when might we hope to see those updates arrive? Well, apparently HTC's current problem with leaks extends far beyond the new One itself, and the latest identifies its plans for bringing Sense 6.0 to last year's One, One Max, and One Mini. The first device to get a Sense 6.0 update ...

    HTC is in an interesting spot. Last year, it launched a flagship, which bore its all new, consolidated branding: One. The phone was the recipient of tons of praise and some of the most positive reviews of a smartphone … potentially ever. It raised the bar in build quality and design in the Android space, and to this day, it's still winning awards. Yet the Taiwan-based company is continuing to hemorrhage more money each quarter. Our own Stephen Schenck spilled the beans on HTC's latest earnings report earlier this week. Essentially, revenue is down 37.2 percent for January and February ...

    In a nutshell, the all new HTC One is no longer a mystery, so long as the controversial leak from earlier this week is to be believed. A preproduction model found its way into the hands of 14-year-old Roshan Jamkatel, who created a lengthy (and rather shaky) walkthrough video of the M8. While Jamkatel didn't necessarily talk specs, he did confirm quite a few of the most recent rumors, such as the introduction of on-screen navigation buttons, the dual-camera setup, and a new face for BlinkFeed. The video also unveiled unexpected details, like a microSD card slot. What we didn’t need the ...

    There are plenty of miniature things in this world that are great. Love or hate it, the Mini Cooper S is an incredibly fun car to drive. The iPad mini is a smaller, more affordable version of the iPad Air with just as much power and prowess. Even mini golf is one of my favorite time wasters to partake in when I'm on vacation. If my opinion on "mini" were instead based on the mobile industry's meaning of the word, I would hate practically everything with the mini tag. We all would. Samsung has been doing it for a few years now – throwing the mini tag on the end of its popular Galaxy S ...

    All done getting introduced to HTC's new Desire 816 thanks to our hands-on video? All right, then: you're all set to see how the 816 measures-up to HTC's flagship One series, and we laid them all out at MWC 2014 to give you a proper sense of scale. Make no mistake: just because the Desires may be more budget-focused devices doesn't mean that the Ones will dwarf the 816. This guy is still a phablet, after all. And while it may not have the sleek metal design of the Ones, its straightforward, sharp look makes the 816 attractive in its own right. Take a step back, and you might just mistake ...

    Didn't get enough of that sweet mid-range-on-mid-range action from our Sony Xperia M2 vs HTC One Mini comparison video? Fear not, smartphone fan, for the Mobile World Congress is a big, big event, and its walls are home to more smartphones than most of us would know what to do with. Satisfied we saw everything we needed to from the M2, we went looking for other mid-rangers to share with you, and came across one of LG's many new additions, the G2 Mini. The G2 Mini may play fast and loose with that word "mini," but we're going to do our best comparing it against the One Mini. Really, it's an ...

    Sony's new Xperia M2 is the more compact of the models it introduced at the MWC this morning. With a qHD display and Snapdragon 400 SoC, it's a few steps removed from a top-shelf smartphone, but certain specs like its eight-megapixel camera help elevate it a little above the chaff. We've already shown you how the M2 compares to the Z2, as well as given you a hands-on of the phone itself, and now we switch gears and see how it measures-up to some of its competition, putting it against HTC's One Mini. Sure, the One Mini has a much smaller and higher-res display than the M2 (really, the ...

    Now that we looked at the Huawei Ascend G6, we're comparing it to a phone that is (somewhat) similar in specs and utility: HTC's One Mini, a mid-range device which has a lot of things in common (and a lot of other things unique) with the Ascend G6. Both of these phones have an aluminum back, but, while the One Mini has a four megapixel "UltraPixel" camera at its back, the Ascend G6's front-facer has a five-megapixel webcam. If that's not enough (or you don't care about taking pictures), it's 720p (One Mini) vs qHD (Ascend G6), and a lot of other discrepancies. Check out the on-site ...
