Deal: HTC One Mini available from £22

After Samsung with its Galaxy S3 Mini and the Galaxy S4 Mini, HTC has brought a HTC One Mini to the market, a device similar in its design to its flagship, the HTC One, but without the price and the components inside. They both come with a metal body and big speaker grids.

Instead of the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 clocked at 1.7GHz, you get an unexciting Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC clocked at 1.4GHz and way slower. Other features include 1GB of RAM, a 4.3in Super LCD2 display with a 1,280 x 720 pixel display, a 4-megapixel "Ultrapixel" camera with AF, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a 1,800mAh battery as well as HTC Zoe and HTC BoomSound, both of which have been borrowed from the HTC One.

The phone is available from BuyMobiles on O2 on a two-year contract for £22 per month. That is a total cost of ownership of £528 which is around 75 per cent more than the price of the handset on its own.

The package includes 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 500MB data plus tethering, unlimited O2 Wi-Fi, Priority moments and two months free O2 tracks. You can read our review of the HTC One Mini smartphone here.
