In the beginning I had some reservations, but with all phones there are downsides and problems. The phone is quite solid, though my micro usb port has come loose and doesn't work with my computer but still charges fine. This is because I have been quite rough with my cables though, so my fault. I used to be a Samsung fan, but have come to love my HTC phone. If you do decide to get this phone, maybe avoid the white/silver model as there are a few complaints about the plastics on this model. Maybe the issue has been resolved but you don't know if you get old stock from your supplier.

+1 Very true, get the black model or any besides the white/silver one because there are some hairline crack problem. I have at&t so there were no choices between colors so I had to get the white/silver one and I had a replacement for the hairline cracks. Then after like 5 months of the replacement phone that I'm using right now has 2 hairline cracks. If I spot 1 more or before the 1 year warranty ends, I will ask for a replacement.

Means except manufacturer defects you don't have any probs. What a contrast. Same question was asked in xperia z1 compact forum and people had lots of complaints. Well in the end it proves specs don't matter, user experience does.

i just got mine a few months ago. I was an iphone guy since the first one... tried to go android with the galaxy s4, but ended up taking it back because it was too inconvienent using it with one hand. Considering I was running an alpha of cm11, which just finally went to beta, I'd say it's a great phone, considering I'm not even running stable hardware. battery life is at least on par with my iphone (as long as i'm careful with what's running). So for me.. it's the best adroid fit for myself i've found.

Yeah its a hell of a beautiful smartphone. In India only HTC one dual sim is there which is thicker than the original and does not have unibody. So that makes the mini one of the most beautiful smart phones and the most beautiful in HTC's portfolio.

With Jelly Bean, I wasn't impressed with the battery life. Now that I have KitKat, it seems to be far more acceptable. It's still not as good as the old One S (man, that phone was ahead of its time)!

The only other regret is the camera. It works beautifully in low light situations (like dimly lit restaurants), but during all other occasions, the photos have such low resolution that they only look good while viewed on the phone. Viewing them on a computer screen reveals a lack of sharpness and detail in the photos.

Other than that, this phone is sexy and meets all my daily performance needs.
