HTC One mini 2

Verizon’s HTC One Remix is a rebranded One mini 2

"A rose by any other name", or so the oft-quoted phrase goes. Verizon has just announced the arrival of a certain HTC One Remix, bearing key features of the One M8 in a tinier package. For all intents and purposes, however, this is the very same One mini 2 that will be launched in Europe and Asia-Pacific, simply slapped on with Verizon branding. But that's not exactly a bad thing.

Galaxy S5 mini vs One mini 2 vs Xperia Z1 Compact

Now that the Samsung Galaxy S5 mini has been revealed, it's time we took stock of the market. Most of the major manufacturers now have a "mini flagship" for this half of year and now we have to ask ourselves, which one between the Galaxy S5 mini, the HTC One mini 2, and the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact truly deserves the title of being small but adequately terrible.

HTC One mini 2 takes on the midrange: We go hands-on

HTC has a midrange problem. The One M8 is a great phone, but it's a flagship which means it's expensive. It's also big, with a 5-inch screen and those frequently-commented-on big bezels top and bottom. Arriving to hopefully save the day is the HTC One mini 2, taking the style and some of the key functionality of the One M8, and making it easier to hold, easier to afford, and far more suited to the mass-market.
