Aaron reviews the HTC Butterfly S, the Taiwanese cousin of the HTC One with some impressive improvements under the hood. Available now in select countries, the Butterfly S packs a 1.9 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU, 5-inch 1080p HD display, 4-ultrapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, 3,200 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2. Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5.
While you lose the metal exterior, the Butterfly S brings some huge improvements over the HTC One, including a display that's the same size as the Galaxy S 4's and a much larger 3,200 mAh battery. The downside is the cost - with no carrier availability in the US, the unlocked price of the HTC Butterfly S sits at about $800. Larger display, larger battery - and larger price point. Is it worth it? Part 1 of 2.
