Hi,

i have an htc desire at the moment. I want to get a new one, and thought about the HTC One serie.
Yesterday i had a look at the HTC One M8, but it's too big i think. So i thought on getting the M8 mini. But it's not much cheaper than the normal m8 and has an lower camera, lower prozessor,....
So i thought what about the old One (M7).

Would you take the M7 or M8 mini??


what about the video/picture quality of the M7 are you contented with it??

I would go for M7 as it is only .2 inches bigger @ 4.7 Inches vs the 4.5 Inch screen on the Mini 2 and 1080p screen with 469ppi on the M7 vs 720p screen with 326 ppi. The camera though will be very similar with both phones. The processor on the M7 is far better with 4 x Krait-300 Cores vs 4 x Cortex-A7 cores on the Mini 2. The price on Amazon for a new M7 is 465 whereas the Mini 2 costs 440, both are sold by Amazon themselves. So go for the M7 because of the better value for your money.

I would suggest the original M7 as well.

But if that's still too big, I would pick the Moto G over both mini phones.
