I am using Note 3 (32gb) too. I do not like the face covers of BS are all the same (black and red), and internal storage at 16gb. But I shall go to buy one after reading your comment. Thank you.
Got this Butterfly S for some months now and from my experience with other current phones in my collection, I would say this is probably the best all rounder daily driver I have used. The word I would describe this one is "Balanced".
The other phones I have right now are Samsung Note 3, Asus Note 6, Huawei Ascend Mate, Samsung Ativ S, and some recently sold phones were Sony Z1, Asus Padfone 2 and Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. I have done personal comparisons between these phones and I still prefer this Butterfly S over the current top tier phones like Samsung Note 3 and Sony Z1. Yes, Note 3 is supposedly at the top right now (due to the vast advertisement budget Samsung always has on their flagships) but I found out 4 things that I disliked about it, maybe these reasons are personal and maybe some of you might disagree but hey it's just weren't my taste.
Coming back to the Butterfly S, what I like about it are:
- Battery life (really good)
- UI (Sense 5.5)
- Ram Management (a topic rarely discussed in phone reviewing websites)
- Can't see and feel the difference in performance between Sanpdragon 600/800 and Adreno 320/330 even though there are supposed to have differences.
- Feels solid in hand,
- Beats Audio and front Boomsound speakers.
And my favourite for mid category phone is surprisingly Asus Note 6. This is probably the best value-for-money phone which comes with a pen, similar to Samsung's S Pen which you can use to write, draw, cut, crop and paste as you wish but at about half the price of Note 3. Intel's Clover trail processor is not bad either and it's smooth, display is top notch Full HD, battery reasonably good and great SonicGear speaker sound quality too.
This phone is GREAT in many ways:
1.Very nice design;use this cases:http://www.ebay.com/itm/121181....m1497.l2649

6.just 160 g weight with 3200 mAh battery and 5" screen;
7.Luminous,vivid lcd with Gorilla glass 3;
8.Infrared-works great with all my devices(tv,dvd,etc);
9.Micro SD card port-i have 64gb sd + about 13gb internal and now i ordered the new sundisk 128GB!!!(amazon-119$);
10.HTC sense 5.5 experience.

Jypa, 12 Jan 2014I phone 5s is the best smartphone in the market at the moment without any doubts!!! And everyo... moreI have iphone 5s and HTC Butterfly S. HTC IS 10 timees better.
- battery lasts max 12 hours
- poor speakers sound vs Beats audio
- poor display
-no group sms/email possibility
- no duplicate contacts
- poor dialer, no T9 dialer, no contacts integration
- iPhones are for non-power users
- iPhones are prefered by women and anti-technical guys.
- HTC is much faster, flexible, one step ahead of what you want to do.
- even is almost twice double as price, iPhone is far to touch HTc capabilities.
The butterfly I purchased second hand in good condition had the camera issue. When the camera was turned on, the phone was placed flat down on a table (essentially covering up the camera). The screen would then become purple. I called HTC HK (I live in Hong Kong), and they ordered a courier to pick up the phone, stated they would physically replace the camera, for me to backup my contents as the phone would be wiped, and for the phone to be couriered back to me - all free of charge. Note this phone was bought second hand and I did not have a warranty. Please check with your local HTC presence in your city - don't be lazy. Pick up the phone and make a call :)
i cannot find radio and htc blinkfeed in my mobile HTC Butterfly s, please advise how i can access ?

I've tried all the solutions and remedies available eg, updating new software or setting lowering iso level, It doesn't improve abit. I head down to service centre in SG which is located at keppel bay tower near harbour front mrt. Or you can arrange a free pickup for free, just call HTC service center hotline 1800-415-5505
