The scaled-down version of HTC's flagship phone is a mid-range stunner that carries over the dynamic UI, good call quality, and strking design of its bigger sibling. Capture high-quality photos and smooth 1080p HD clips using HTC's patented 4MP "UltraPixel" shooter, plus bump your Google Music library through the ear-piercing BoomSound twin speakers. Its less-powerful 1.4GHz Snapdragron 400 CPU might not hold weight against the One's 1.7GHz chip, but does good enough to keep the device moving at lag-free speeds.
