The HTC Butterfly is one of an increasingly common breed: a high-quality Android phone that is not going to be released in the UK. Here's our HTC Butterfly review....
Verdict: Not available in the UK, it's worth reading about the HTC Butterfly to whet your appetite for the full HD smartphones we expect this year. But we wouldn't say it is worth paying over the odds for a grey import....
Overall User Rating (3.5 Out of 5 based on 368 ratings)
Overall: Let s see what we have got here.
FROM FLAGSHIP POINT OF VIEW
HTC Butterfly: 5 Inches, 1080 P screen, Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait, long in the tooth UI with predictable set of features, good build quality, 4.1.1 Jelly Bean, 8 MP Camera, all this at mind boggling Rs 45890/-
SONY Xperia Z: 5 Inches, 1080 P screen, Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait, lesser UI customization for better Android experience, superb build quality, 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, 13 MP Camera and a big plus for Indian conditions IP 57 certified Dust and water resistant all this at Rs 37,990/- !!!
The above example illustrates that even with a super feature which is IP57 certification Xperia Z costs Rs 7900/- less than HTC Butterfly.
FROM FEATURE TO FEATURE POINT OF VIEW
SONY Xperia ZL : 5 Inches, 1080 P screen, Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait, lesser UI customization for better Android experience, superb build quality, 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, 13 MP Camera all this at Rs 35,990/-
Which means that HTC Butterfly is overpriced by astonishing Rs 9900/- , can you believe that!!
FROM PROCESSOR POINT OF VIEW
LG Optimus G: 4.7 Inches, 720 P screen, Quad Core 1.5 Ghz Krait, feature rich UI, good build quality, 4.1 Jelly Bean , 13 MP camera and at a price of Rs 30880/-
Butterfly plus is 1080 P screen and LG Optimus G plus is 13 MP camera , considering them to be even HTC Butterfly is again overpriced by a whopping Rs 15,000/-
So guys pick and choose your phone wisely as per your requirements but keep in mind what is offered to you at what price and whether manufacturer is taking Indian customer ,that is you, for a ride or not.
P S: I am no HTC or SONY fan.I am surprised to see mindless comments trying to deliberately show SONY Xperia Z in poor light. I checked the leading sites for XPERIA Z review and it is among the top best rated mobile phones today in world.
Techradar : Current Ranking No. 3 (Editorial), HTC butterfly is not even in rankings !
Cnet : Xperia Z user ratings 4.5, Droid DNA (Butterfly) 4.00
GSMArena: Xperia Z User Rating 8.9, HTC Butterfly 7.3 ( voting parameters : Design, Feature, Performance) moreover on daily interest/popularity chart xperia Z is 97% where as Butterfly is only 9.7% !
SGBest: Xperia Z tops current User Ratings at 5.00
The list can go on and on, the point is fanboyism does not help anybody to choose the right product. I never said that HTC Butterfly is a bad product but at the current price point it is a market dud in India, having said that Xperia Z can do much more that Butterfly can do at the right price point which will make it a success in Indian market.
