The HTC Mini 2 has a beautiful overall, looking like a shrunken down HTC One M9.

The size fits well in the hand and you get a really nice but compact mobile, perfectly formed for anyone not wanting a big phone.

As well as a memory card slot you are also given free Google Drive space to backup files to. There are a range of useful HTC apps such as the car mode that gives you good big buttons for use when driving.

HTC One Mini 2

The HTC One Mini 2 comes with a 5MP front facing camera and a 13MP rear facing camera.  Video quality was good, although a little shaky if video was being taken on the move.  The Mini 2 also produces some good photos, with vibrant colours and good depth of field.

There are a range of inbuilt photo filters, but compared to other HTC phones the photo options are limited to just front facing photos, rear facing photos and video. Other HTC mobiles have things like splt photos (one photo that takes a picture using both cameras), panoramic photo etc.

The front facing speakers are really good compared to other mobile speakers and they mean sound is directed directly at you, and having a speaker at the top and bottom (or left and right when held landscape) gives a clear stereo sound.

Where the Mini 2 is disappointing is gameplay. You can see in my review video that the racing game Asphalt 8, which runs fine on much lower cost mobiles such as the Honor Holly or Alcatel-OneTouch Idol 3 was actually rather jerky, with gameplay repeatedly stuttering making for a rather annoying experience on a phone that should handle this game with ease given the premium price tag.

If you’re not much of a gamer and want a stylish, but not massive, mobile this is well worth considering.
