The HTC One mini 2 is official and while one can debate the virtues and downfalls of its Snapdragon 400 chipset or if it's too tall for a mini, it's all meaningless without a price. After all, the new Motorola Moto G 4G costs $220 / £150 (that's 160-180).
So, how much premium will HTC be charging for the cool aluminum unibody and better camera (compared to the Moto G 4G)? Several Dutch websites are reporting a price of 470, though they don't link to a store that actually offers the HTC One mini 2 at that price.
At least that's lower than the leaked price from a week ago, 520. Keep in mind that the HTC One (M8) can be had for around 570.
We're keeping our fingers crossed that these initial prices include hefty markups from retailers as even the aluminum unibody and better camera lose their appeal at three times the Moto G 4G price. Read more about the HTC One mini 2 in our hands on.
I'd rather get the z2 compact for this kind of money. Very good build quality, way better specs and as a bonus, it's water proof. This will fail badly if this, indeed, will be the final price point.
First of all the HTC one m8 is not 570, but more likely 699 here in Europe.... Said that, this 470 for a snapdragon 400 with 1Gb of ram and a 720P screen is utterly ridiculous. They are cheating on customers...
