What's more important, a microSD card slot or more internal storage?  Faster processor or 4G LTE?  Aaron's doing a dogfight head to head between the HTC Butterfly S and HTC One.  Two brothers - but only one winner.  The Butterfly S brings a fantastic specification list, but it comes at a hefty unlocked price of around $700.  It offers a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor, 5-inch 1080p HD display, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage space (with a microSD card slot), 3,200 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with HTC Sense 5.  The HTC One is available at AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile (and soon, Verizon) and sports a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU, 4.7-inch 1080p HD display, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, 2,300 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean (on international models) with HTC Sense 5.  Contract price is around $199.99, making it more affordable up-front than the HTC Butterfly S.

They're both powerful smartphones, and they both bring a lot to the table.  The HTC Butterfly S has a display that's on par with the Galaxy S 4 and offers a microSD card slot, but it brings with it a hefty unlocked price tag.  The HTC One has a gorgeous build and availability on multiple carriers, but the display is smaller.  Which one brings the most to the table?  Part 2 of 2.
