What's the battery life like? In a position where I can purchase the TW international version, but not if that battery sucks. Let me know bro
I got one from Japan, operator au, KDDI. Rooted it to remove japanese bloatware. Phone runs smooth, doesn't overheat despite of Snapdragon 810. It has IR, NFC, TV receiver, Radio Receiver, and antenna is plugged in stereo jack. 128GB micro sd works perfectly. Camera is ok, but expected a lot more from 20MP, night shots if taken without flash have noise. It's too tightly coupled with Japanese market (e.g. TV receiver asks me which region of Japan i wanna scan; also NFC contact-less payment is in Japanese which wants you to open account there, but it reads UK bank cards (HSBC in my case, can pay taxi with it)). Texting (SMS) has issues with "+" (international exit code); probably operator drivers were buggy, no fix yet for "+", waiting for update or use it without "+" and just add "00" as exit code in your contacts. Everything else works fine.
There is Taiwan version of the same phone (they can be converted by some super-experts on web), Taiwan version is without NFC, TV receiver, it's not au KDDI branded, less bloatware. Texting works well in all parts of world.
I would totally recommend this phone due to fantastic hardware features IF there was an International version... I love possibility to pay taxi in UK with NFC or watch what's on local TV when I go abroad... great toy.

HTC will never prosper unless they put high mAh batteries on flagships.. 2700mah for 5.2 inch QHD, are you out of sense?
this phone is beauty and have good hard ware and software and also use new version of sp810 this phone is the best of htc
damuho_ph, 01 Nov 2015My butterfly 3 lasted for a day...And then what? Do you mean it died? I don't understand.
Htc butterfly is the best lineup from htc which can make profit for them, because they kinda messed up lately just like sony... And htc should really decrease their smartphone prices they were too expensive to be fail
Saw some reviews on Japanese sites about the phone;
It has an unusual problem of heat, and the battery lasts for 5 hours~, with about 2 and a half hours on SOT.
Absolutely disappointing, I had high hopes for this device, but what can you expect from a Quad HD screen, SD801 processor and a 5.2" large screen with 2700mah battery.
HTC should really rethink their releases.
