HTC is a popular smartphone company and has been touted for many beautifully designed phones. The phones are smart, sleek and to the point with no extra marketing gimmick. HTC maintains this with the launch of the HTC One X+. The HTC One X+ is a new phone that shares many similarities to its big brother the HTC One X; however, it also shines in many places where the predecessor shied. The HTC One X+ is basically an upgraded version of the HTC One X and hit the market in November 2012.

The HTC One X+ sports a 4.7-inch super LCD 2 touch screen with approximately 312 ppi pixel density, meaning the screen is pretty awesome and it does not show any pixels. The screen has excellent resolution and shows sharp and crisp clear photos and videos. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 2 that keeps it from getting minor day-to-day scratches. The device is sleek and thin in general, but has put on a little extra weight (5 grams) compared to the original One X. The phone is covered in a soft-touch polycarbonate plastic chassis that has smooth curved corners. The soft matte plastic makes it easy to grip the phone and keeps it from slipping through the fingers. The phone comes incorporated with the HTC Sense UI v4+, which is basically a combination of the HTC Sense and Jelly Bean. The combination of the two provides additional features such as: Google Now, Voice search, faster screen navigation, new gallery app (organizes photos by events and location) and HTC Get Started (allows PC to configure the phone faster).

The device is powered by 1.7 GHz Quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 process making it faster than the original HTC One X. The faster processor allows seamless transitions between apps and makes the device smooth to work with. There was no hindering or jerking when operating the device.  The One X+ comes installed with Android v4.1 (Jelly Bean) right out of the box. The device comes with 32 and 64 GB internal storage capacity that is not expandable and 1 GB RAM.

The device houses an 8 MP rear camera with auto focus, LED flash, and BSI sensor, along with a 1.6 MP front camera for video conferencing. The front camera also has a countdown features that counts down to the moment the picture is being taken to ensure that the user is camera ready. The camera comes with many additional features that help the phone stand out against all the other devices. The features include: F2.0 aperture and 28mm lens, Dedicated HTC ImageChip, VideoPic, Continuous shooting, Smart Flash, Sightseeing mode, Video stabilization, Slow motion video capture and playback and ImageSense. The ImageSense allows the phone to take faster and the best photos under any lighting. The VideoPic is a new feature that allows users to take images while recording a video as well as taking an image when playing an already recorded video. The Smart Flash provides five levels of flash that adjust automatically when trying to take a shot, while the Sightseeing mode allows the camera to be handy during outings, so that it can be easily accessible.

The device houses a non-removable 2100 mAh Lithium-ion Polymer battery, which according to tests by many review website, dies pretty quickly. When fully-working the battery does not even last a whole day. However, no official data has been released by the company regarding the Talk-time and the Stand-by time. The company has also added the Beats Audio sound enhancement to its speakers as well as headset and it can be turned on and off by the user. The phone has been a popular hit with many that require a good sturdy budgeted phone with an excellent camera.

The HTC Butterfly is a high-end phone by the HTC Corporation. The phone has been quite popular all over the world; however, most people don’t know exactly how popular the phone has actually been. This is mainly because not many people know that the HTC Butterfly and HTC Droid DNA is actually pretty much the same phone, with only a few differences. The differences are only there to make the phone more regional specific.

The HTC Butterfly is sold in four variants: Droid DNA in the United States on the Verizob Network; J Butterfly HTL21 in Japan on KDDI's au network; Butterfly X920d in Taiwan, South East Asia and India; and Butterfly X920e in China and Russia.

All the variants have most of the same features. They are all powered on a Quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor. The HTC Droid has the Quadcomm MDM615m, while the Butterfly variants have the Qualcomm APQ8064 chipset. They all have 2 GB of RAM and Adreno 320 graphics processor. They all have an 8 MP primary camera and a 2.1 MP secondary front facing camera. The display is a 5 inch Super LCD3 capacitive touchscreen with Corning Gorilla Glass 2. At the time of the launch the phone was the second phone in the market to feature a 1080p display. The phone has Android version 4.1, but is upgradable to Android 4.2.

The HTC Droid DNA differs from the other variants, in that it supports wireless charging, but lacks a MicroSD slot. The Droid DNA and the J Butterfly both support CDMA and LTE connections, as well as UMTS. However, only the Droid DNA comes with quad band UMTS radio. The X920d and X920e, on the other hand, do not even have LTE support. There are also some subtle differences regarding color accents, buttons and logo placement. However, these are minor and so not affect the phones.

The information for the detailed table about the two phones has been taken from HTC website, engadget.com and GSMArena.com.
