This is the only 5" phone from HTC. M7 is supposed to be the flagship phone for 2013 but still at 4.7" according to the news so far. Its really the pretty face , the 5" and resolution that sells.
actually im ok with 4.7 but at least now better launch with LTE

4g overrated la. HSDPA+ is enough for 99% of what 4g has to offer for a mobile phone.
Even streaming a 1080p YouTube video is possible without a 4g.

But HSDPA+ only StarHub have right? The rest all pushing 4G. So we all LL have to follow.
It's not 4G overrated. It's the f%@!king 3G here sibeh CUI. So bor bian have to.

Thats incorrect .. all carriers have H+ ... Starhub also has (in addition) DC-HSPA (theoritically 42 Mbps) ... The radio on this phone is pretty good and also I have seen Fast Dormancy working on M1 properly which means it actually goes down to 3G from H when no data is being used ... not like Samsung which keeps juggling and even OneX ...

Initially review (of 12 Hours!) is pretty good ...

The 4G coverage still sucks.

Hi, HTC Butterfly users. So far how is battery performance in terms of 3g data surfing? How long battery last for your usage?

Thanks.

I managed to hit 9 hours with my extreme usage. Playing games, watching movies. Standby battery is excellent.
