HTC Butterfly series. If we had to keep one of the HTC devices, we would probably keep the Butterfly model. It has been in the market for a long time and the series already has four models is a clear indicator that it has made a hole in the market. In the lower part you can download the manuals of the Butterfly series from HTC.
To begin we will comment on the original devices: the HTC Butterfly. His arrival in stores was in 2013 and still has a good number of active smartphones. It landed in the high range and offered us a wide screen of 5 inches (remember that until a few years ago, a larger screen was almost unthinkable).
Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 600, Corning Gorilla Glass 2, NFC and Android 4.1.1 (Jelly Bean)
he interior had a powerful quad-core processor, with 2 GB of RAM and a pretty generous internal storage. The cameras allowed to record videos in 1080p so that it fulfilled the needs of the majority.
Perhaps autonomy was its worst virtue without having deficiencies.
We continued the series with the reduced version published the same year: HTC Butterfly S. Interestingly, not everything was reduced but in some aspects it obtained improvements. Like the 3,200 mAh battery instead of 2,020 mAh.
For example, the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen or a slightly faster processor (Quad-core 1.9 GHz Krait 300). But the worst was undoubtedly the back camera that went down to 4 MP and the front, although it retained the same megapixels, lost ability to record videos in high definition.
HTC Butterfly 2. The second version of the device if it brought very interesting news that made it rise positions on the podium. For example, it had something that was only seen in the high range: water resistance. An IPX7 protected it up to 30 minutes underwater.
The screen maintained the same characteristics: resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, 441 pixels per inch and a size of 5 “The Android operating system was upgraded to the KitKat version 4.4.2 (it could be updated in the previous ones) and the processor went through to be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801. A Quad-core too.
RAM identical to the first and two versions of ROM with 16 or 32 GB.
The photo and video capture went to the next level with a double camera of 13 and 2 MP. The connectivity did not change and the battery gained just under 700 mAh capacity (2700 mAh).
At the end of 2015 came the third version (not counting the reduced of the first), the HTC Butterfly 3. Its biggest novelty lies in the ability to capture their cameras. The front with 13 MP was adapted to the fashion of the selfie and the rear rose to 20.2 MP. Both with the ability to record videos in 4K quality.
The Butterfly 3 brings octa-core performance to the series with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage
The negative point is the autonomy must support a larger screen (5.2 “), resolution (1440 x 2560 pixels) and pixel density (ppi 565). Adding a higher performance is a problem if we are Play games or be all day hooked to the screen.
Well for Android that goes up to Lollipop 5.0 but bad for eliminating the resistance to IPX7 water by the IP57.
Both the 2 and the 3 are still available and could receive new updates but there is no news of a fourth model of the series.
