First thing to come in notice is the 1080p display obviously. The HTC butterfly flaunts an insane 5-inch true HD 1080p display that is 1920×1080 pixels resolution Super LCD 3 display with Corning® Gorilla® Glass 2 protections boasting a 440ppi which is the highest pixel density ever available for a mobile screen.

The design truely lives up to what was expected from HTC. The smooth glossy finish and microgrill pattern of the sidewalls depicts the effort HTC has put into looks. The beautifully crafted smartphone feels thinner than other devices of a similar size as the edges of the curved back taper to a mere 4mm for a comfortable feel in the hand or pocket.

Talking about the technical specifications it features a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with 2 GB RAM and 16GB memory. This time HTC has given an option to expand the memory storage via a microSD card slot. They have also partnered with DropBox to provide 25GB cloud storage for free.

Beats audio amplifier as seen in the earlier models is too built-in the device to deliver crystal clear studio kinda sound quality.
