When it comes to "small" phones sporting 4.3-inch displays, the options are really slim these days. The top options each come with custom UIs, and consumers don't have the luxury of picking up a Google Play Edition of any of them. People who want a zippy stock Android experience on a smaller device that's still relatively powerful are therefore placed in a position to take matters into their own hands. For HTC One Mini (M4) owners, CyanogenMod is now here to help. The project has officially rolled out support for the device, with an experimental build produced on-demand available now and a nightly expected to show up later tonight.


The HTC One Mini isn't as powerful as M7 it's derived from, and it has half the RAM, but most of the sleek metal design survives intact, making this the "mini" to get for people with smaller hands and an appreciation for premium build quality. The provided zip is 210.89MB total. It may not be stable, but for people who are tired of the stock HTC experience, taking the risk just makes sense.
