Hands on with the HTC One mini

Shrinking the jaw-dropping 4.7-inch display of the HTC One down to 4.3 inches makes for a whole new smartphone experience - one that’s better suited for both small hands and skinny jeans.

It retains all the vigor and value by baking in a powerful processor, vibrant display, beautiful software, awe-inspiring camera, and booty-shaking sound.

Hands on with the LG Optimus G Pro

The term “smartphone” doesn’t seem to describe LG Optimus G Pro accurately. Not because it doesn’t excel at its primary task as a mobile phone.
