Without doubt the worst phone I have ever had. I bought into a contract of 5 phone, 3 have been replaced one other required full reset and lost everything on the phone. This has all been within 3 months of the phones being new. Can't believe i am a two year contract for this rubbish.
I can honesty say that the HTC One mini2 is the worst mobile I have ever had. Believe me I have had some! It is so slow and EE do not accept there is a problem. I have thrown it in the drawer now and have bought an HTC one S which is ten times better. I will use the S for the remaining year of my contract. I think EE didn't know what to say, he did not have my comment written on his card! They are as much rubbish as the mobiles they sell!
don't. Just don't get this phone - work well for 2-3 months then
won't factory reset
won't send emails
won't sync with computer
I can't manage my files. When im on Settings> security>Install from storage> Internal storage. My stuff is greyed out! How can i make it workable?
At first I bought the htc one mini 2 in the hope that I'll be getting android 5.0 soon-esh...that was in the beginning of 2015 and 5.0 was pretty new, I knew it could take a few months and I had a good standing with htc in the past as my first phone was a htc device...that was in the beginning of the year...there is nothing wrong with the stock 4.4.2 kitkat ROM, but it was starting to get old, both from my fun of using it, it's looks and apps support, It is October and news of android 6.0 is buzzing around,( who knows maybe I'll get a surprise 6.0 update in the future)
Other then that android update letdown, I really didn't find anything wrong, the large internal space is a nice feature as I haven't been able to fill it (without installing 50 apps I don't need) and the back camera takes OK pictures, I don't have a need for that selfie cam on front as it is a other story then the back camera, original battery live was good, lasting me 3 days without heavy use and a good 5 hours of ex-stream heavy use
(the next paragraph is only for advanced users)
Modding was a bit hard at the start, getting the phone rooted and stuff, but I did it. CM support is a bit lacking and the back side did heat up a fear bit in heavy use with custom roms, also if you like the start splash screen's clean look then kiss that good by after installing a custom rom as you will get a nice little notice in read letters telling you about that that build is for developer purposes only ect.
Ok back to the stuff your normal android user would care about, first of all these phone is durable, apart from a few nicks and dents on the corners of these phone, it survived pretty well if you consider that I'm a bit of a clumsy person, cover hunting was...interesting...If you want a cover then I'll suggest online shopping...also be warned that I am pretty sure the back is used as a heat-sink as it can get pretty hot at times, perfect for heating your hands in the morning I suppose...
Worst phone I have had up to date! Do not recommend anybody to invest in it!! Have had software issues with it from the first day
Anyone have any idea why my phone freezes randomly and then just turns off without any warning
problem in speaker,charger, getting too much heat,slow worse phone ever i used
worse. phone. ever.
Notifications don't show up. Slow. Unreliable. Randomly sets speaker on while talking on the phone. Already replaced phone once. Camera crashes. Try viewing the photo after taking it...... . .. s .. .l .. .o. . w.
HTC One Mini 2 is one of the best cell phone, perfect processing speed, outstanding result is front and back cam, at least two day's backup me.
raaz, 05 Jul 2015Hi! i'm planning to purchase this mobile, plz let me know shall i buy or not.Absolutely do not buy this phone. It is terribly unreliable and its performance is poor. Even HTC have given up bothering to update its software.
I have had one of these for 6 months and it has needed to be replaced 4 times. It looks and feels good, but clearly the money was spent on the packaging and the technology underneath is cheap, slow and unreliable. It's a real shame as the original HTC One was really good. This seems to be HTC cashing in on the One brand with a sub standard handset. Do yourselves a favour and DO NOT buy this phone.
This is the worst phone at this price .Entry level specifications for the moment of lanch.
The best android phone i've had so far. great features for the price and not too big for my girls hands. the camera is great, the screen is clear and bright. the phone itself is really good looking, no plastic and we like that. 3 minor things that annoy me though: when it's flat on a table it will tilt because its back is rounded (doesnt happen since it lives in a case full time) second, the battery life could really be improved. even when i dont touch it it doesnt last the day. it's annoying to charge it twice a day. but as i read on many reviews, it's normal and within the average of most android phone. must be apple that gave me high standards regarding battery life. the iphone 6 can last 2 days if you dont use it much. and third, there are not many custom roms out there for this phone. i found 2: cyanogen and liquidsmooth. and cyanogen was a nightly that was really bugged. fortunatly liquidsmooth runs perfectly fine and ive been using it for a couple months. i'll stick with it since i didnt even find a paranoid android or a aokp for it.
