HTC spends a lot of time talking up the aluminum unibody in the full-size One. It'd be a shame if they threw that out with a smaller model.

no, the Mini has the plastic frame on the sides extended to the front, but the back is still metal as well as the speaker covers which fit inside the plastic frame now

Yes with the sides being aluminum which run around the design meaning the top, bottom and sides are plastic.

Woops I made a mistake I first said the sides are aluminum then I said it was plastic I meant plastic. The only thing I didn't know is the speaker grill is plastic.

I'd say the speaker grill is aluminium, too :)
It doesnt feel like plastic, it feels just like the back cover of the phone.
