Is the HTC One "classic" just a little too big and ungainly? Then perhaps the HTC One Mini is up your alley. It just so happens AT&T is looking to sell one to you. We've known the HTC One Mini was headed for Ma Bell, but the carrier just made it official. It's half the price of the full-sized One at $99.99, which isn't a bad deal.


The HTC One Mini comes with Android 4.2 and runs a Snapdragon 400 ARM chip, 1GB of RAM, Ultrapixel camera, and a 4.3-inch 720p Super LCD2 screen. It has a familiar unibody aluminum casing, as well as the front-facing BoomSound speakers.

If the $99.99 price tag with contract isn't attractive to you, there's always AT&T Next. The One Mini costs $21 per month on that plan. Yeah, rock, hard place, and so on.

    This is funny, the mini version will be released with 4.2 while the main one is on 4.1, so weird but true

    Again... exclusives...

    This looks uglier than the One (regular), and not that huge of a size difference either.

    • AndreKP2124

      It doesn't look ugly, but about the size I agree with you.

      • Los507

        I have to agree with Bob G that it's extremely unattractive. Whatever they did to the edges takes it really takes away from the original look of the HTC One.

    It looks like an iPhone with speaker grilles.

      EDIT: I'm not saying HTC copied Apple. I'm just saying that a shrunk down One reminds me of an iPhone.

      • Unknown21

        That's an old history I listened from the beginning of this year, when the HTC One got leaked. Many people said: "That phone looks like an iPhone"

  • Bill Jones

    Half price? Wouldn't that be $100 less including AT&T subsidy?
