    HTC One Mini official specs (finally!)

    With the on-going trend of smartphones becoming ever larger, some actions had to be taken as not everyone wants a massive slab as a smartphone ““ even as much as some manufacturers want to believe that. More and more smartphone makers are releasing smaller versions of their flagship devices, to accommodate people with a need for smaller screens as well as a lower price.

    The Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini did quite well, and now most Android devices seem to be following suite. HTC has released their smaller version of the flagship HTC One, called the HTC One Mini. We still believe the HTC One is the best Android phone on market today – and the best looking – so we are really looking forward to getting our hands on the smaller sibling.

      No details on release date and just a image of the back of the phone? Was expecting a little bit more info 🙁

    • jacques

      HTC CRAP!!! Had to throw mine in the garbage because HTC has NO SUPPORT system in SA for software/hardware issues.
      Also, one of the most expensive phones to repair if anything breaks on it.

    • anisha

      HTC is amazing! I love my phone. So much better than a Samsung.

      • Theunis Jansen van Rensburg

        I have to agree with you there.

    • Question is – will there be stock for SA?
