HTC Butterfly 2 

Released September, 2014
  • Android, HTC Sense UI
  • 4G
  • 5"
  • Quad core 2.5 GHz
Details are nice and crisp, which isn’t too surprising taking into account it’s the same display size and resolution.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2014)
Delivering a maximum brightness output of 510 nits, it’s a miniscule improvement, but it’s not something dramatic enough to give it a clear advantage – more so when it’s still very easy on the eyes to view under direct sunlight.

Reviews Word on the street for the HTC Butterfly 2

Like before, we’re given two options when it comes to playing music – the Google Play Music app or the Sense music player.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Overall, the choice of going with a higher megapixel count camera definitely makes it more formidable – plus, the added duo effects continue to give that pro-like look with its profound bokeh-like effect.

Does the switch to a higher megapixel count camera make a sizable difference to its quality?
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2014)
With the latter, however, we’re treated to a larger 13-megapixel camera, which we’re ecstatic to find.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2014)


Having this gives us more flexibility when it comes to cropping photos later on, so that there’s no detrimental loss in detail during the process.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2014)
Frankly, the biggest improvement here is the increase in detail – an obvious result, no doubt.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2014)
The display here is the same as its sibling, a 5-inch 1080 x 1920 Super LCD-3 panel.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2014)


Battery The slight increase in battery capacity doesn’t translate to an outstanding battery life.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2014)
In fact, it’s almost unchanged from before, but we’re able to easily get at least a solid one-day of battery with normal usage.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2014)
Despite the increase, we don’t recognize a substantial improvement to battery life with real-world usage.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2014)


Sure, it gains a water resistant construction and a more formidable 13-megapixel camera, but it loses its signature unibody aluminum body, which unequivocally gave the phone its biggest advantage - one of the best premium designs out there.
by PhoneArena (Oct, 2014)


Depending on your preference, the tradeoffs with the HTC Butterfly 2’s design might be a good or bad thing.
