HTC Butterfly review: The droid monarch - read the full textGoing by sales in the past year alone, it's easy to forget that HTC still makes some of the best hardware in the smartphone game.

Why did it get 45hours in battery test when DNA got 49 and they are the same phone?

And also, the web browser in HTC Butterfly does have flash support, you need to enable it in the setting within the app.

Regarding waterproof, Butterfly is certified IPx5 anti-splash.

The Antutu score is really dodgy... I've tested my Butterfly 920d three times with default setting, and the mean score was 21043, which is what should be expected from a S4 Pro CPU!

Have had this phone for a week via import and have to say it is amazing. Build quality is excellent and its very thin as well. Software is smooth as silk and call quality is very good.

I'm not a heavy user but phone comes off at 5:30am and with email syncing , browsing , half hours worth of calls, 2 hours of music on commute, I still have 70% of my battery left at 11pm. The battery saver mode really works.

Was regretting my purchase once the HTC one was released but having had it now do not regret it at all. Its a fantastic phone.

HTC's build quality is consistently high. The Butterfly should sell very well in Europe.

In continuation with my previous comment,
In fact they have pushed S3 sales higher, many of the smart buyers who waited to see this release have now tipped over to s3, since the price difference is too huge to be justified. 16,000/- plus of difference that to without the previlage of 12 months interest free given by samsung is simply too much / unacceptable for the HD screen,beats audio, HTC sense UI and other things. Lets ses what will be Sony's strategy about launch and pricing of xperia Z in India since in many of the tests they are better than HTC :)

HURRAY HTC has scored self goal, and their biggest blunder once again. Like many fellow members have commented,it seems that the process which company follows rigth from what should be the new phone like to the after sell sevice has a huge deficite when compared to what is expected out of them. This clearly outdo's their engineering department making nice phones, but also clearly explains why they made huge losses last quarter and are going to do again this quarter.
One wonders with the pricing of 45,800/- INR and s3 29xxx INR (along with 12 month interest free installments from samsung itself) why would one want to pay HTC the amount they are asking. After all s3 also most sufficiently does all the job what is expected from a smartphone. and for HD display, boss it does not make much of difference in day to day life at all.

What? I am happy to see the power button back in place where it belonged for ages (not exactly). I was happy that the power key was out of reach (on my old nokia phones). Unlock button ok, but combined with the power button was a stupid idea. Never liked it! Despite the fact that I am no HTC fan I need to admit that back in time they always managed to impress me with such little logcial human touches.

Remember when One X and GS3 was available, there were GS3 ads everywhere, like it was the only phone at that time, people were like... HTC what?!?!?
