It looks and feels nicer than the S4 mini. But the nice metal uni-body means nothing if you end up using some kind of case. The screen is definitely an improvement over the S4 mini, as it's higher definition and sharper.
Personally I'm not to fussed about sense, I use an alternative launcher. But the rest of the software is all good in my opinion.
Performance wise phone runs great for what's inside, but I can't help feeling that having a little more ram like the S4 would make all the difference.
If you do get the HTC One mini stay away from the white version, as it seems to be plagued with cracks in the plastics after very little use.
