    Default HTC One Mini : Is this the mid ranged phone you've been looking for?

    So the title says it all....

    In an age where the bigger is better concept has been debated for the last year. Could HTC have an answer to those who aren't all about the 5 inch plus displays and bigger overall foot print in your hand?

    Many of the veteran Android/smartphone users out there still are coping with the loss of their sleeker and slimmer devices we cared back a couple years ago. Sure they weren't the power houses of today, had smaller displays and overall foot prints but that to some was exactly just " perfect ".

    Below is a tidbit of some of the highlights of the HTC One Mini's specs. I can see where this phone maybe a real choice pick to some folks out there. Maybe your one of them?

    HTC One Mini specs

    Personally, I think there should be a distinction between phones tablets and hybrids.

    To further elaborate, I think that size wise there should be a distinction. The line between such is becoming thinner and thinner. This is just me, but I think phones should stop at 5", hybrids should take up 5.5" to 6.5" and tablets 7.5"+

    I think it is a good thing they are offering smaller versions of the flagships, if anything to introduce another price point for more consumers.

    That's a perfect size and I love my one a lot so when I play with it at the store if it's just as fast and fluid as this I'll make the switch

    My only concerns are if the boomsound speakers sound the exact same and if playing games and UI are just as fluid . If all is almost the same I would prob made a trade today to get the mini for my def one

    Would it not really depend on the price. At $350 it's a good phone, at $450 it will fail.

    I'm super excited to try out the One Mini. Like the other guy said I just want to make sure it's as fluid and smooth as the regular sized One.

    My One is great it's just larger than I need. I mean, I'm 6'3" 220 lbs and have pretty large hands- even so it is difficult for me to operate with one hand. That comes in really handy for me as I like to be able to discretely use it a lot since I spend a lot of work time in courthouses. I have to REALLY stretch to get over to the top corner with one hand. I find that I don't keep apps up top so I don't see that am taking advantage of it's size.

    Won't most judges throw you out of the courtroom for using a phone?

    not if you are an attorney. The deputies will get on to "people" for using their phone, but if you are in a box they do not care.

    I went into att this morning and checked out the moto x and one mini. You can definitely feel the one being narrower than the moto x. To me the mini feels almost as thin as the iphone 5, I know it is not, but I think the curved back makes it feel narrower than it is. It kind of feels awkwardly tall compared to how narrow it is though, Almost same "tv remote" feel some people said the iphone 5 has. I have never been a fan of lighter colored phones so to me the mini in silver with the extra white plastic doesnt really grab my attention, I hope they come out with the black version soon. I ended up walking out with a black moto x and so far for the past few hours I really like it. I have some time to figure out if I am sold on it , if not I will just return it and wait for the black mini and give that a try.
