HTC prefers their smartphones to be rugged and sturdy and that shows in their Butterfly’s unibody build. It fits comfortably into one hand as it has been kept thinner and longer like the iPhone 5. Moreover, while the iPhone has a 4 inch screen that isn’t even HD, Butterfly has a stunning Gorilla Glass based, 5 inch, full HD display with a high pixel density of 441ppi. The only other smartphone with this much pixel density is the Sony Xperia Z.
The iPhone 5 is lighter than Butterfly, but then at 140g, the Butterfly is far from heavy. It has a striking pair of cameras that can turn out first class full HD videos and photos and have a lot of handy functions and modes found in point and shoot cameras. It has 16 GB internal storage and can be stretched to another 32 GB with a microSD card, which is lesser than iPhone 5’s 64GB.

Its price can be called a let-down, but once you factor-in its features you will realize it is actually pushing smartphones to newer heights. At 35k, Sony Xperia Z is cheaper and tempting, but has a TFT based smudge prone display, whereas, Butterfly’s AMOLED screen with Gorilla Glass offers by far the best visuals in a smartphone.

Butterfly can’t provide the creative medley of Note 2 or its side by side multi-tasking, but it does have an equally hefty quad core processor and 2 GB memory, a much superior display and is thinner and lighter than a lot of high-end smartphones.

Butterfly’s battery back-up is decent according to our battery tests. It lasted for 6 hours on our battery comparison test, in which we played a 2hrs movie at 720p resolution in loop. The results are at par with the likes of Galaxy S3 or Nokia Lumia 920. The device can be used for high quality leisure stuff and is a dependable productivity device as well. You can download whatever apps you want from Google Play, and since the touch response is flawless and typing accurate, you will like using it.
