As already mentioned, within a week, cracks appeared in the side casings. this is my second phone as the display failed within 2 weeks on the first one.
It is now around a year old and the battery life sucks.
I unplug it at around 6.15 am and it has died by 12 noon. That is if I have 4g turned on. If I turn off mobile internet, then it makes it up until 10pm or so. But whats the point of a 4g smart phone without internet ?
Worst htc ever !
After 6 months of usage, the battery life has become is extremely poor. Even the power button does not work properly. I faced the same problem when i was using HTC Explorer.
I got the HTC 1 mini just 4 months ago. The problems started almost immediately-the side casing is so bad that it started cracking without the phone ever being dropped. The power button is not working properly. i sent it to the manufacturer who refused warranty because the phone had corrosion! Not even 4 months of use, never being dropped to the groung or into any sort of liquid. I am extremely dissapointed because i liked the design and the size of the phone very much, however looks does not replace reliability, especialy when service and warranty is below any expectations!
I have had a htc one mini for 10 months now,for 6 of them it worked,the battery is terrible ,I tried to get the cracked casing fixed but the whole phone is melted together cause of the heat so it would cause further damage,the power button doesn't work ,it restored itself to factory settings 3 times,the casing cracked ,it was drooped twice on carpet in an otterbox case,the speakers began to crackle after a week,and no shop will accept it as part ex against another phone cause it can't be ethically fixed or has no value,and htc won't help cause the cracks on the side have voided the warrenty

jm777, 09 Sep 2014Vik360 -- with regard to hairline cracks, in your research did you find any way go repair them... moreThe htc one mine has problems with the casing cracking. This has nothing to do with dropping the phone. mine has never been dropped and the white plastic trim started cracking up after 2 months from new. Never dropped. HTC simply don't want to know and refuse to repair under warranty.
Quick search on google shows this is a major issue.
Nice phone, no hang and lang on gaming, sexy design, powerful phone, but battery is poor and phone is heating too much.
its such a brilliant phone with great experience.and no one mini phones can beat thin.
If local contacts stored without international prefix, incoming call or SMS not recognising caller ID.
If I know that I wouldn't buy this.

I don't know why people are giving out about this phone, I've had it nine months now and I drop it every day and the screen hasn't cracked. Great camera, battery life could be better tho overall great phone
