We love the minis because they have a smaller screen and a lot of strong specs. HTC One mini 2 is a really strong device with a great camera, a fast processor and a lot of custom apps that you can find on premium HTC devices. The design is beautiful and the sound is strong. And the price will not hurt you. So it’s a choice.
