Who do you think is the winner of Pahblets Battle in 2013? We already covered Samsung Galaxy Note2 and LG optimus G Pro. SO, let's take a look at HTC Butterfly.

HTC announced its magnificent new smartphone, HTC Butterfly, in the last quarter of 2012, the first HTC smartphone with a 5 inch full HD display. Here, in this article we are going to take a look at this beautiful Pahblet.


 With a thickness of around 9mm and a weight of 140g, the company has done a great job on the design part. The display covers almost all the front since the sidebars are nearly removed and are at their minimum. And even with that large size of the screen, you will totally feel no trouble handling it.



When we speak about hardware, the first thing pops up is the proccessor. While Butterfly uses a Quad core Qualcomm S4 processor with the frequency of 1.5gh, the GPU relies on Adreno 320 and like all other similar smartphones, it has 2 GB of RAM. The display is however unique, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 the pixel density reaches to 441 PPI, just like SONY Xperia Z. An 8 MP camera with full HD recording is enough to fulfil your needs for a high quality video recording. Another great feature HTC has used for Butterfly, is the Beats Audio technology which brings high quality audio hearing along with deep audio bass when listening to music by hands free.


Remote Control

HTC surprisingly announced HTC mini as the remote control for this phone. Using this gadget, you can control your phone. For example to answer your Butterfly calls, watch a movie on it, access your text messages, set an Alarm or even set an appointment. This gadget can use either Bluetooth or NFC as the communication port with Butterfly.



Android 4.1 is the default operating system installed on the device, and the 4.2 version is promised to be released soon. As always HTC has used HTC Sense as the GUI. The default browser is completely compatible with HTML 5. The camera application can capture both video and photo simultaneously. You will have no photos with closed eye any more, as the camera can capture photos, before storing them. You will gain an extra 25 GB free cloud space on Drop box, when you buy this smartphone.
